Mevagissey, Cornwall, England
Topheavy cottage is a charming 2 bedroom traditional stone cottage in a great location within the heart of Mevagissey - at harbour level so easily accessible for all the shops, pubs and restaurants.
The ground floor of the property has twice been renovated after flooding and more recently tanked with an up to date flood defence to help prevent further problems. We have kept the house traditional as to what you would expect of a cornish fishing village which has been used by family for many years.

Cosy lounge with wood burner, door to dining kitchen and stairs to first floor.
Open dining / kitchen with all mod cons.
First floor there are 2 bedrooms (double and twin - narrow older style singles) and a bathroom. There is a balcony off the twin bedroom with chairs to relax in the evening.
Towels are not provided.

Nice place with everything you need. the accommodation is centrally located in the village making it very convenient for the many pubs, shops and strolls down to the harbour. The kitchen is well stocked which is very useful not having to get the little necessities like washing up stuff, salt, pepper, etc. Nice touch with the balcony at the back...

As soon as we opened the door, we felt at home. This cottage had everything you needed (I brought my hair dryer and Tongs - but no need they were in the drawer). Excellent location for the little shops, the Harbour, the stunning walks and the beautiful beaches we took our little dog to every day. Parked our car right...

Management response:

Sorry you were unhappy with the cleanliness. We were let down more than once by the cleaner who was replaced after your stay. The bedding was also renewed as the cleaner had mixed up lots of linen from other properties. For info, it wasn't done by the owners wife and it was the caretaker who you met that day checking...
