About Katharine Bailey
Katharine and Trevor Bailey bought Headland View (now the Net Loft) in May 2012 at auction with a plan to refurbish and re-launch it for the 2013 holiday season. It was already let for the 2012 holiday season and so they were not able to start their "hands on" refurbishment until October 2012. In January stage one of the refurbishment was complete just in time for a re-visit from the BBC programme "Homes Under The Hammer". Kate is an artist and Trevor is a pilot involved with flying and displaying classic/vintage aircraft . They live in Cheltenham and bought Headland view as their holiday home so that during low season periods they can indulge their love of the sea and of walking their two dogs - who both love their coastal walks and a daily swim.

Why Katharine Bailey chose Mevagissey
We loved the beach side location and the peace and quiet. It is also useful to have car parking and it was important for us to have a garden with a sea view for al fresco dining. The local pub has proved to be a great place for getting to know the locals and for dinner when we just don't want to cook. We like Mevagissey because it is a very pretty working Cornish fishing harbour and less touristy than many other local seaside villages. We very much enjoy the access to fresh fish and some very good local restaurants.
What makes this Apartment unique
When we were looking for a property we listed sea views, parking, two bathrooms and a sunny garden as essentials and this was the one property that ticked all of these boxes for us.
100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date.
Absolutely gorgeous place to stay, with views that you could only wish for.
Great space and excellent equipment in the kitchen area.
Thank you for such a great holiday home.
Lovely get away
Very nice , cozy , great views x
The Net loft is a lovely apartment with stunning views out to sea. It is a stones throw to Portmellon beach, a 15 minute walk into Mevagissey, and a 20min walk to Chapel Point beach. It has a balcony and garden looking out to sea, which made for some lovely alfresco dining/ early morning cups of coffee.
The open plan kitchen, dining and lounge was perfect for our young family. The Net loft was well stocked with kitchen equipment and games.
If I was to be super critical, in some places, some aspects of the Net Loft were looking a little tired. However, this did not distract from the overall stay. I would wholeheartedly recommend the Net loft and would not hesitate to book again. We had a magical holiday at the Net loft and was very sad to leave.
Peace and quiet
Stayed at this property in school hols at the end of May,very quiet village, everyone seems to go no further than Mevagissey. Property has the 4 ticks I look for,sea view,parking,dog friendly and dogs allowed on beach. Rising sun pub next door has nice staff,but can get busy around lunch time. We’ve been going to Cornwall in May for around ten years and this is the best property we have stayed in overall.The only problem I had was with parking up on arrival but a local asked us where we staying and showed us or spaces.get there if you can.
As good as the photos if not better
This is a well presented and well designed unusual property overlooking the beach at Portmellon. We had a wonderful time, experiencing both storms (watching the waves lash the cove below) and unusual Easter heat. The property kept us cosy, sitting by the log burner, during the former and allowed us to sit outside eating our breakfast for the two mornings when the sun shone and the wind had departed. We loved it.
There are some really nice restaurants in Mevagissey just over the hill, where we walked each evening.
Perfect week in Portmellon and Cornwall
Along with our daughter, partner and two grandchildren (6 and 3), my wife and I stayed at The Net Loft from 6 - 13 April. In short we all had a brilliant holiday thanks to the immaculate accommodation and the settled sunny weather.
As a 3 generation family the apartment suited us very well indeed. It was spacious, very comfortable, spotlessly clean, very well equipped and full of light with all round views of sea and country.
Its location overlooking Portmellon beach within easy walking distance of Mevagissey and a spectacular coastal walk in the opposite direction, was ideal.
We took advantage of the weather to explore nearby Fowey, St Mawes and the Roseland Peninsula and the Lost Gardens of Heligan as well as venturing further to The Lizard and Kynance Cove, which we last visited nearly 50 years ago!
We have no hesitation in recommending The Net Loft both to relax in and from which to tour this most beautiful part of Cornwall and would readily return ourselves.
