Lovely character cottage with quality furnishings

4 of 5
We had a four night break in this lovely cottage with our dog. The setting is very quiet and peaceful. While we were there the weather turned very cold but the wood burner kept the cottage very warm and cosy. The owners are very pleasant and on hand if you need them.

Great location perfect for a short break

5 of 5
We stayed in this annexe for 3 nights as we were down in Cornwall for a short break. Julia was very welcoming and the property was ready for us earlier than the official check in time which was useful as we arrived just before lunch and could go out for the afternoon without having to think about coming back to unload the car. The property itself is a perfect size for a few nights with enough space and kitchen equipment for some simple meals and breakfast. If we were staying for a week or longer I'd probably go for a larger property with more space to spread out but for a few nights it was ideal and we were out and about most of the time anyway. Great location with just a 2 minute stroll down into Mevagissey and the offroad parking is a great bonus as well. Thanks Julia for a nice relaxing stay and the homemade scones were great too!
