Overview

About the property

Ground floor apartment sleeping 2 + 2. Only 20 metres from car park

The Old Shop apartment is a one bedroom ground floor apartment with a sofa bed in the lounge. With all rooms on the same level, this property is ideal for anyone who prefers not to use stairs.

Situated 200 metres from the harbour and just 20 metres from the car park, this property is ideal for all to explore the region with beaches, cliff-top walks and the Lost Gardens of Heligan only minutes away. Perfectly located in the village, the apartment is just a short level walk to the restaurants and pubs in the narrow cobbled streets, but far out enough from the hustle and bustle to be quieter at night.

The property has been renovated to a high standard with double glazing throughout. There is a well equipped kitchen and the dining area has a table to comfortably seat 4 people. There is a 40 inch TV with DVD player (with lots of DVDs) plus an Xbox (with games) in the lounge and further TV's in the bedroom and dining area. The sofa bed in the lounge (new for 2016) opens out to sleeps 2 children and has a pocket sprung mattress, making a comfortable double bed. The bedroom has a kingsize bed, wardrobe and chests of drawers. The wetroom, with under-floor heating, is equipped with a power shower, toilet and basin. All other rooms have modern electric wall heaters and there is an air-conditioning unit in the lounge.

Weekly rates include electricity, linen and towels. Parking permits are available for the discounted rate of £35 per week. A "disabled" parking space very close to the apartment can be requested (as the car park is privately owned, this is also £35 per week)

Sorry, no pets allowed and this has been our policy since the renovation works were completed.

A travel cot and high-chair are available at no extra cost.

Saturday is our normal changeover day and we operate on a weekly basis.

Christmas holiday 2016:

Stay from 7 to 10 nights arriving between Saturday 17th December 2016 and departing by 10am Tuesday 27th December 2016. Please contact us for further details.

The South West of Cornwall has a wide variety of attractions to explore. With it's mild climate Cornwall is home to many gardens and National Trust properties. The Eden Project and the Tall Ships Harbour in Charlestown are both within 10 miles of Mevagissey and Truro with its magnificent cathedral and numerous shops is 20 miles away. Fowey, Gorran Haven and the Roseland Penninsula are also popular local destinations. Walk along rugged coastal paths or long sandy beaches, Cornwall has something for everyone, young or old.

Mevagissey has numerous restaurants and family friendly pubs, often hosting live music. Being small, Mevagissey has escaped the commercialisation of other Cornish seaside destinations and has a selection of interesting independent shops. Having made its wealth from pilchard fishing, Mevagissey once had 9 butchers shops. With its double harbour, Mevagissey is one of only a few working fishing villages left in Cornwall and you can take a pleasure cruise or try mackerel fishing whilst enjoying the glorious views of the Cornish coastline where you may catch a glimpse of seals, dolphins or basking sharks. There is a model railway and free museum within the village along with an activity centre which has a variety of activities. There is also a local scuba-diving club and the Pentewan cycle trail has lots of level stretches through the woods following the river. Towards the end of June Mevagissey celebrates Feast Week, a week of family fun, music, and floral dances through the streets. There is a small beach in the harbour and Portmellon and Pentewan beaches are nearby. New Year's Eve is not to be missed as all the locals are in fancy dress so don't forget your outfit to see in the New Year.

Lovely comfortable Apartment

  • 5 of 5

The Old Shop apartment in Mevagissey is well furnished and equipped and tastefully decorated. Very spacious and light, clean and modern. The owner John is friendly and helpful and you are made to feel very welcome. A two minute walk takes you into the pretty harbour village of Mevagissey. We have stayed here twice now and would definitely stay again.

Idyllic apartment in prime spot

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly happy with our wonderful break away. The apartment had lovely character, with all the modern conveniences needed and was thoroughly clean. There were 4 of us and we had enough space not to be in each other's way. Although we didn't need them, as we were out every day, there were lots of DVDs and games in case the weather had taken a turn for the worst. It was so easy to get parked with week's pass and we were an incredibly short walk from all the wonderful shops, restaurants and from the harbour itself. I suppose the only thing we may have missed is a personal outside area to sit in the sun, but we answered that by either opening the front doors and sitting looking out, or we took a short walk to the top of the cliff/hill. One minor suggestion I may make is a small freezer of sorts so that you could have ice in your cider bought from Healey's, but then again, you could just pop to up the road to pub instead. We felt so very welcomed by John and Kate and would happily stay again. Thank you both so very much.

Great apartment - second visit

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at the apartment as it is a pefect location for us for day trips, seeing local family and I just love the harbour and there is a wide choice of places to eat.

The apartment is the perfect size for us as a couple, has all we need, and is lovely and clean.

John and Kate are very friendly and helpful, and prompt with any queries.

Already pencilled in for next year.
