About the property

House in Mevagissey, Cornwall, England - Quiet Location, 3 Minutes Walk From The Village Centre And Harbour Front. Parking for 2 cars. Wi-fi.

With panoramic views over the hills and village, Penmeva house enjoys a quiet cul-de-sac location above the bustle of Mevagissey, Cornwall. The valley provides a stunning setting for your stay, to be enjoyed from the large balcony, spacious sunny deck and meandering terraced garden. On cooler evenings, you can admire the view and the bird life from the bay window in the comfortable family living room. Mevagissey is still a working fishing harbour and has grown into a busy village with many cafes, inns, shops and restaurants, whilst retaining its character. It is a three-minute walk from the house down the hill to the harbour where you can enjoy an ice cream or coffee, explore the historic alleys or try your luck with the crab lines on the harbour wall. Penmeva is a comfortable, well equipped and attractive house, with proximity to the village and private parking for two vehicles making this an ideal base for families and groups.

Good accommodation in lovely place

  • 5 of 5

We had a short week in Mevagissey staying here and really enjoyed it. Simple question first - would we stay there again? We definitely would.

The house was well equipped and very comfortable. Alex is very easy to deal with. Sitting out on the balcony was lovely when we did get a bit of sun. The kids really liked 'their' terrace down below with the table football.

Very spacious and clean.

  • 5 of 5

The property was large enough for our party of 6, the outside areas were great. The walk into the village was quite steep but was only 15 mins. Overall we had a great stay and would be happy to return.

A real home from home

  • 5 of 5

We had a long Easter weekend and just wish it could have carried on

We are two families of four who shared the house and never did it feel like we were on top of each other,

The four teenagers were happy due to the Wifi and its speed but us Adults just found everything to be spot on, particularly the cleanliness of the place on arrival, oh and the welcome bottle of bubbly and biscuits, a lovely little touch

The house came with everything you could need, the cupboards were well stocked with basic provisions along with dishwashing and cleaning products, which are more often than not, missing from self catering properties.

When it came to a bit of cooking there was every pan, knife and utensil you could need along with every way of cooking and preparing the food

The lounge was not massive but plenty big enough to sit us all in and enjoy the log burner after a night out.

The bed in the main bedroom was huge and so comfortable that you could have spent all day in it, but that would mean missing sitting on the balcony sipping a fresh ground coffee or a cheeky Tarquins. The other beds were all reported as being very comfortable even the bunk beds in which my 6ft 16 year old son slept in.

There is a little jaunt down the hill and steps into the village for the shops, pubs and restaurants, it does only take 5 mins but to be honest that jaunt is a bit more taxing on returning back to the Ranch, you will pant a little, but its worth it.

I have prattled on a bit, but the place is just spot on and such a reasonable price especially compared to our beloved StIves which seems to get more overpriced every visit.

Anyway do not have any hesitation in booking

An amazing experience

  • 5 of 5

The House was beautiful, clean and very comfy; we were very surprise comparing to our last experience (bad one :) ), kids loved it, the house has a great facility of barbecue; and kids enjoyed playing on the balcony. From the house it is easy to walk to the shops and restaurants (amazing seafood in Mevagissey).

We spent time on different beaches (Caerhays beach, Gorran Haven....to name a few, visited Heligan gardens...)

I highly recommend.

Great experience :)

Ideal for our needs

  • 4 of 5

As long as you are able to walk up and down a hill this property is in a great location and is very comfortable. It is a little difficult to drive to - a very tight corner and narrow streets in the village or a long drive down very narrow roads the back way. It was clean and spacious and very well equipped with a lovely deck area overlooking the village. The only negative was the bunk beds were very uncomfortable for the adults that had to use them.
