Overview

About the property

Lovely holiday home, extensive sea views, beachside garden, parking, dog and child friendly

The Net Loft has lovely sea and countryside views and is warmed in winter by a log burner and night storage heaters. It has a large living area and 3 bedrooms. Tastefully refurbished, it retains many original features. One of the owners of the property is a successful artist, Katharine Dove, and her paintings are hung throughout. Portmellon is a small beach community, with a family friendly pub serving local beer and family meals. 15 minutes walk away is Mevagissey, a 14th century working Cornish fishing village. With its fishing boats, shops, galleries and restaurants lining the narrow cobbled streets, it provides a taste of the real Cornwall. The Net Loft is on the top floor of a pre Napoleonic building. The building is set into a cliff and there is a climb up into the property from the private sea facing garden at the front making it unsuitable for those with limited mobility.

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.

Katharine Bailey purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Katharine Bailey chose Newquay & St Austell area

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.

Guestbook comments from the manager

"A wonderful cottage in a peaceful beachside location, we love the views and proximity to the beach".



"I do hope we will return to The Net Loft, in a fabulous location and the Rising Sun Inn provided us with excellent food".



"We loved the spacious living area, the comfortable bedrooms and the sea views and ate lovely food in the Rising Sun Inn, we will be back".

The kitchen has sea views and open this and the open plan living make cooking in this new kitchen a real joy.

A fantastic property in a stunning location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in Portmellon. The Net Loft is a lovely property, it's situation is fantastic and the accommodation was everything we could have hoped for. We explored much of the surrounding coastline, countryside and neighbouring villages and found some fabulous beaches, stunning views, and great places to eat and drink !

We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, including the dogs and would love to return one day

Thank you :)

location will always promote this property.

  • 3 of 5

Didn't quite have the wow factor for me or my family, I expected more for a property in this price range. My opinion is based on previous properties rented from Owners Direct.

Looks a bit tired could do with a lick of paint.

Boutique Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

A real gem: with beautiful sea views from the front; the mid-terrace lawn is a real sun trap; the balcony level with bijou table is perfect for a couple to have breakfast/cuppa & browse the newspapers, and, the beach is an easy 2 minutes stroll away.

Being a loft dwelling, access is the only downside if stairs are a problem to visitors. Plus, pack a hairdryer (unless supplied since our stay) - Sally the housekeeper kindly lent us one, which saved our bacon on the day of the wedding we were attending in Mevagissey.

A quirky, fun home that grows and grows on you

  • 4 of 5

Even in the risky month of March the stay was a treat. Sally the housekeeper kept in contact and made sure that we had everything we needed, logs and coal in our case. You do need to be fairly nimble to climb the outside wooden stairs to the loft but the effort is worthwhile - a birds-eye view of the scuba diving lesson in the clear, shallow cove, the ladies rowing team coming back in to collect a tardy member who had celebrated too hard the night before. The serenity is beautiful, we had the pub next door to ourselves and were made to feel very welcome. Netloft really does grow on you, it doesn't aspire to perfection - the shower room is quite tiny and the second and third bedrooms are small - but it is the sort of place that calls you back, a call we hope to answer.
