The view really is spectacular and the property is immaculate. The owners are helpful and easy to communicate with and were next door if we needed them but there was also enough privacy. The walk down into town is very steep and as we had a family member who struggles to walk we just sent someone ahead up the hill to fetch a car down when heading home. We found everything we needed to make our stay comfortable, with a well equipped kitchen, good laundry facilities and extras to accommodate the baby such as a cot and high chair. What made the stay extra special is the generous touches such as arriving to fresh scones, clotted cream, jam, shortbread and a bottle of white in the fridge as well as ample basics such as dishwasher tablets and loo roll. If you don't already know Mevagissey, it's a delightful harbour town and we recommend The Ship Inn, which was very friendly, including for babies. And we still caught mackerel in September from the harbour wall. There's no parking in the town which makes the two spaces at Harbour View a massive asset. We would love to come back in the future... we only wish it had another bedroom so we could still travel with friends and children when our little one grows up as this is somewhere we would happily return year on year.
