It is a delightful and modern 2 bedroom house that has all possible amenities available. Built on a hill, looking across Mevagissey Harbour. It is decorated in modern, sympathetic colours. With fast broadband, a selection of good DVDs, Sky TV, when the rain came in, we had plenty to keep us occupied. Mevagissey is a bona fide fishing village with narrow lanes and steeped in history, which bustles all day long. Cafe No.5 was the standout for us along side the Fountain Inn where Bill, the landlord made us very welcome. However the really important point to note is how helpful and immediate the owner Jane was in assisting us on arrival and providing plenty of info in advance. She was immediately in contact when we had a couple of questions upon arrival and we also had a fresh milk, butter and local bread delivered to us courtesy of Jane. Thankyou! In addition ensure you follow Jane's directions to Hillside, not your satnavs! If you have a large car and not confident of driving in very narrow town lanes, then avoid the town centre, which satnav will invariably take you to. Overall 10/10.

I cannot express just how lovely Courtyard Cottage is, the pictures online look great and in the flesh it's equally if not more impressive. John and Kate really have put in great work with the place in modernising it but without going overboard, it's wonderful. John and Kate are super hosts too, we were able to meet with them in person and Kate provided the little ones with a tour of the cottage. We also had my parents staying with us and they were equally impressed. We had a fantastic week in Mevagissey and were blessed with sunshine throughout our stay. The cottage is so close to the centre of the village and harbour, that even after a day at the beach, it was no effort to head out for crabbing or a swim after tea. I love Meva and now my 5yr old son is in love with it too. He has been drawing pictures and talking about it still, weeks after our stay. We're hoping to return next year and hopefully, as my parents did with me, every summer. Having experienced John and Kate's hospitality and cottage, I know where I'd like us to be staying.

The kids loved the spinny chair and the PlayStation, not that we spent an awful lot of time indoors! The car park really isn't that far to walk, would definitely recommend. Thank you Liz.
