4 Elm Terrace Pet-Friendly Cottage description

Holiday home
This is a warm, welcoming stone-built cottage nestled amidst a cobbled terrace that overlooks the Cornish fishing village of Mevagissey. Decorated to a very high standard and well furnished throughout, this lovely property boasts an open-plan living-area with well-equipped modern fitted kitchen and dining table. This wonderful cottage is situated in an excellent spot close to local amenities and various activities in the wider region. This is a great base for people looking to explore the world-renowned Eden Project, Charlestown's Tall Ships or some of the many other fantastic activities on offer in Cornwall.

With winding cobbled streets and a harbour full of boats, Mevagissey is the perfect Cornish fishing village. Leading along the coast in both directions are stunning walks past sandy beaches, high cliffs and hidden coves to explore. The village itself has a good selection of restaurants and pubs whilst the local area is full of excellent holiday activities. The Lost Gardens of Heligan are just a short drive away, the Mevagissey to Fowey ferry runs daily between Easter and September and the harbour at Charlestown is home to a number of Tall Ships. Also nearby is the world famous Eden Project, just 11 miles away, which features fascinating tropical biomes. No matter what the time of year, this lovely area of Cornwall has something for everyone.

Cornwall's visitors are constantly tempted back to the beautiful coastline, tiny fishing villages, hidden coves and the world-class surfing. Whatever the reason, Cornwall has long cemented its place as one of Britain's premier holiday destinations.

The cottage is very comfortable and nicely furnished. Mevagissey is a nice town with plenty of places to eat and drink.

Mevagissey was a lovely part of the world. The cottage was spotlessly clean and very well thought out, everything you needed was provided for. It was lovely to come back to the cottage at the end of the day to relax.

4 Elm Terrace was a delightful home from home. It is beautifully presented and very comfortable and relaxing. It is set on a quiet and picturesque lane away from the general thoroughfare with a lovely view over the town. The location is ideal, the village centre is a few minutes walk away and the parking opposite means you never have to negotiate the narrow streets! So many wonderful attractions such as the Eden Project and Lanhydrock are only a short drive away. We cannot rate the cottage highly enough, and we will be going back.

Excellent starting point to explore Cornwall. Friendly and helpful neighbours and lovely people all around the village. It was a perfect stay, once more. Near to the shops, pubs and the village and harbour.

It is a very nice cottage with lots of room and well decorated throughout. The theme was lovely. We liked the fact that the cottage was only a 2 minute walk into town and to the harbour. We would definitely recommend Elm Terrace to our friends and family. Mevagissey is a lovely quaint place.

From the moment we arrived at the property we felt like 'home from home'. It was beautiful and a pleasure to spend time in. The owners seemed to have thought of everything to make our stay perfect, I would like to think we will stay there again in the future.

The cottage was perfect for us, including its location in Mevagissey. The weather was just right for walking and we didn't need to use the car. The local pubs and restaurants offered sufficient variety that we stayed within the village for all evening meals. The Lost Gardens of Heligan are brilliant, and again are within walking distance.

Ms Deacon

Fantastic location, minutes walk away from harbour. Relatively quiet location, convenient for main road out of Mevagissey to explore elsewhere. Would recommend Lost Gardens of Heligan. Cottage itself lovely, well furnished. Pictures a little deceptive, it is bigger than it appears and is open plan downstairs.
Mr Lelgemann

The cottage is perfectly located in the village, quiet but close to the harbour. We loved to drink coffee in the morning sun on our small terrace.

Great to be within walking distance of the shops and eateries in Mevagissey. The house was very homely and welcoming. The beds were very comfortable. The house was nice and warm in the evening and cool during the days, which were unseasonably warm.

We spent two very happy weeks at 4 Elm Terrace this summer. It's a really lovely place to stay - roomy, comfortable, well done up and convenient. The cottage is actually two knocked together so it is very spacious - the pictures don't quite do it justice. The conversion was well done (we even met the builder who did it while staying there) and the owners have done a superb job on the interior design. I believe they do it professionally - it certainly looks it. The kitchen is a decent size and well equipped, the open plan living room / dining room is charming, spacious and filled with nice furniture. The sofas are a real step up from typical holiday lets - big, deep, comfy and capable of wooing the unwary into mid-afternoon snoozing. The TV is large and good quality and there is a decent little stereo too so it's comfortable place unwind after a hard day's holiday on the beach or the hill. The bedrooms are big and nicely done with good-sized beds and excellent mattresses. It's very nice place to be. The cottage's position in Mevagissey is what is really special. Elm Terrace is a pedestrianized cobbled lane just on the edge of the centre of the village. This is great because it's incredibly convenient - you are literally seconds away from the sweet shop, the vegetable shop and the spar, not to mention the many pubs and restaurants. Equally the elevated position means excellent views across Mevagissey's valley and (at a sharp angle!) out to the sea. Yet you're also apart from the flow of people heading in and out of town. It's quiet, and you can sit on the cobbled lane and look out over it all while enjoying a privileged privacy. The cottage has its own bench on the lane, so you can sit in the sunshine outside the cottage and watch the world go by, from early in the morning through to 3 or 4 PM. The rest of the lane is mostly locals and we got to know many of them in our stay - they're all lovely. The main car park is a couple of minutes walk away and it's easy to park there and take your luggage (or shopping) up to the cottage. And Matt, who runs the car park, will give you a wonderful welcome to Mevagissey and show you how to get to the cottage. Mevagissey itself is fab - a wonderful, real working fishing village with an endlessly fascinating active port. It's gorgeous, it feels like you're in a different country not just from England, but from the rest of Cornwall! The countryside around Mevagissey is exquisite and there is lots to do. It's a real foodie destination too - the restaurants are tremendous, with incredible local caught seafood and excellent local produce. Downsides? For a family staying for two weeks a washing machine would have been nice, although we got the hang of the laundrette fairly well. The shower was good once it was repaired (the owners were VERY responsive when we asked about it) and the bathroom is decent but not quite as nice as the rest of the cottage. The cottage is built right into the rock and there's a teeny bit of damp smell at times, and a few moths around the place after dark. But these are really very minor issues. Mevagissey is an extraordinarily nice Cornwall holiday destination, and Elm Terrace is a fantastic base from which to enjoy it. We thoroughly recommend it, and we'd love to stay there again.

The cottage is a delight. 3 well appointed bedrooms, large living/dining room with well equipped kitchen. Within easy walking distance of the harbour and the bars and restaurants along the harbour. The public car park, for which there is a permit, is a minutes walk away from the cottage.
October 2012
We chose this cottage as we needed to be in Mevagissey and it looked superb on the website. We were not disappointed. It is in a superb location and has a very homely feel due to its tasteful decoration. It is also very well equipped and clean. We were there as a family over three generations (and the family dog ...) and we all fell in love with it. I recommend this cottage highly

This cottage is decorated throughout in a nautical theme - very pleasing and some tasteful artefacts. Good location, only a few minutes from the main shopping area and the harbour. Throughly enjoyed our holiday here.
