About the property

Cottage with panoramic views in Mevagissey, Cornwall, England - Stone's Throw From Restaurants, Pubs And Harbour Promenade.

Enjoy spectacular views from Bayview Cottage with unparalleled views of Mevagissey harbour, St Austell Bay and the sea.

Bayview is located a stone’s throw from Mevagissey’s picturesque working harbour, where great pubs, restaurants and bars line the promenade.

A creatively terraced garden behind the house is a rare asset in this location. The garden is ideal for relaxing with a drink, having BBQ's, soaking up the sun and of course taking in the views!!

Bayview Cottage is the perfect home from home for a family holiday, a get together with friends or an escape to relax and enjoy Cornwall. Children are welcome and a travel cot and a high chair are at the cottage if needed.

All rooms have generous proportions and are thoughtfully decorated. The views from the living room, the master bedroom and the loft bedroom are what most guests cannot get enough of!

The bathrooms are individually designed and generous in size, modern and with a high-quality finish.

The kitchen is well equipped including a range with a 5-ring ceran hob and plenty of oven space. The open plan kitchen and dining room are perfect for pre-dinner drinks and social cooking and dining at home. Should you wish to eat out, there is a choice of great restaurants in Mevagissey with many of them using local fish and Cornish produce.

Good to know:

Parking is included for one car at the nearby Sunny Corner Car Park, located in the village centre. A convenient lay-by is opposite the property, perfect for collection and drop-off. There is a turning space at the top of the hill handy for heading back to your reserved parking space.

Our change over day in the summer months is Saturday. We are happy to accommodate other days for the rest of the year.

A washing machine, dryer, ironing board and iron are at the property for your convenience.

Towels and bed linen are provided, no need to bring any along.

About Nevin Weston

We are a family of 4 and live and work in Switzerland. We have a great passion for property, with a keen eye on great locations. We enjoy cooking, spending time with friends and family, good restaurants and pubs. Having some outdoor space is very important to us and we try and create areas that allow us and our guests to eat outside, relax, sunbathe etc.

Nevin Weston purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Nevin Weston chose Mevagissey

We came across Bayview Cottage in 2012 and decided to make an offer within 1 hour of viewing the cottage. We were won over by the fantastic location and the unparalleled views.

What makes this cottage unique

We fully renovated Bayview in 2014. Our home from home is now a comfortable, warm, light and modern cottage. The icing on the cake is our terraced garden which has spectacular views, space to eat, drink and watch the world go by.

Fabulous property in a gorgeous position

  • 5 of 5

Weekend get together with friends to celebrate my husbands 60th. Property had everything we required, views were breathtaking, especially in the brilliant sunshine that we were lucky enough to have. Draw the curtains if you don't want the sunrise at 5am to be the start of your day.

Fishing on the Aquila was awesome and a feast of Whiting was enjoyed by everyone.

Everything was convenient for all ages, shops, ice cream, Aquarium and beach. Though a lack of a cash machine did annoy some.

The children loved the secure back garden and eating their food alfresco.

All our cornish friends had positive views regarding this property and I'm sure there will be many bookings on the strength of this memorable weekend.

The cottage was quaint, yet high-tech with great views over Mevagissey harbour. The attic room was my favourite - my two year old daughter liked to make a bed in the dormer window recess.

Short break

  • 5 of 5

Recently stayed at bayview cottage in mevagissy with friends visiting from America. We had a great time. Cottage is very spacious with four good sized rooms and three bathrooms.

Short walk to car park, harbour and restaurants. Great views of the harbour from the bedrooms .

It was easy to talk directly to the owner to make final arrangements and questions about the cottage.

Would book the cottage again next time we are in Cornwall .

Spectacular views and a special village

  • 5 of 5

We all loved Bayview Cottage, and after our one and only drive up the hill we soon got to love Mevagiasey and the walk up the hill each evening after some wonderful meals in the village. The house is very comfortable and well stocked and the master bedroom and bathroom are lovely with amazing views over the harbor. We felt like locals and even went to quiz night at the Harbour Tavern. We enjoyed talking with the owner's mother in the art gallery and breakfast crepes at She Sells are wonderful. Our stay in Mevagissey was one of our favorites.

Owner's Response: So lovely that you were able to enjoy all that Mevagissey has to offer, including a lovely pub and restaurant culture. Julia mentioned that you popped into the gallery at the Market Square because you recognized the art from Bayview Cottage. I hope you will visit Mevagissey and Bayview again sometime. I would love to host you again! :)

Beautiful, well maintained, clean cottage with the most fantastic view.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful cottage with the most amazing view - we didn't draw the curtains all week! The cottage is well maintained with everything you need and was extremely clean with very comfortable beds. The walk up from Mevagissey isn't too far or too steep given the amazing view. The car park permit worked fine for us. I would highly recommend this gorgeous cottage and look forward to staying there again in the future.

A beautiful house in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We travelled as a party of 7, 6 adults and 1 child. We were all stunned by the beauty of Mevagissey and so impressed by the standard of the property. The house was very clean and spacious with stunning views of the harbour from the front windows. The hill climb to the house was a bit of a challenge, but by day two everyone was used to it. It was a great place to completely relax and unwind I would highly recommend this property and would like to thank Nevin for making my Dad's 70th birthday one that the whole family will remember.
