                                                            Although the weather could have been better, our enjoyment of our holiday was not spoiled. The "Old Shop" apartment is furnished to a very good standard with every thing included to make the stay enjoyable. By previously booking a weekly car parking space only 50 meters from the door made access to travel easy. Cream teas and pasties just around the corner was together with the harbour, Cornwall at it's best.

                                                            Excellent place to stay

                                                            My husband and I stayed here last year and were so impressed that we went again this year. The cottage is very modern, a lovely kitchen which has everything including tablets for the dishwasher and washing machine, dishcloths, washing up liquid, even food bags and bacofoil. The nice touches are the milk left in the fridge, biscuits tea, coffee and sugar for that much needed cup of tea at the end of the journey. The two bathrooms are equally modern and very clean, the towels are new and white as opposed to old and grey. There are four lovely bedrooms with new and clean duvets and pillows - Foggarty goose feather and down - I normally travel everywhere with my own pillow but this is one of the few places I don't need to take my own. Although there was only two of us I can see how the cottage would suit a family as it has all the amenities required including a high chair, 2 X-boxes with games, DVDs, board games a selection of reading books and TVs in every room. The sofas are to die for, once in they envelope you and its hard to leave them behind. I am a very fussy person where cleanliness is concerned but I found this cottage was spot on, well maintained and has those little touches which make your stay home from home. It is in an deal location for the two minute walk to Mevagissey Harbour where there are plenty of restaurants and bars to choose from with varying prices for all budgets, Chinese takeaway not tried but we have eaten at the Indian restaurant which does take away, and it was a lovely meal for a change of cuisine. There are places to walk along the cliff path - I can recommend the coastal walk to Goran Haven and back 7.5 miles, but Mevva is equally central to going to visit other places in Cornwall. We found travelling around very easy but beware of the hiked up car park charges in Cornwall in general. It is also nice to relax and watch the world go by around the harbour, it is interesting watching the fishing vessels bring their catch in. I would recommend this cottage and will be going again, the owners were extremely accommodating of the many questions I asked before we travelled and replied to all my emails very promptly. There was no hassle with gaining access to the property as it has a key safe which we used when we went out each day to prevent losing the key. All in all we have had another lovely holiday.

                                                            Very comfortable, great location. We loved it!

                                                            We loved staying at Hillside. The house is beautifully and simply decorated, very comfortable with everything that we could have wanted. Well-equipped kitchen which even has an espresso coffee maker. Wonderful king-sized beds. Heating very efficient but we had the log fire going too. Best of all is the fact that the two upstairs rooms - bedroom and living room - have huge windows which let in so much light and provide fantastic views over Mevagissey. The decking below somehow manages to get sunlight all day yet is protected from the wind so we were sitting out in April. We will certainly come back if we can.
