Welcome to Chapel Cottage
Nestled in the heart of the village in a tucked away location, a short distance from the historic Mevagissey harbour is Chapel Cottage; an attractive double fronted, stone built house. Once you have unloaded your car, you can happily leave it knowing that everything you need is within easy, level walking distance.
We would like to reassure guests that we are taking extra sanitising precautions during the pandemic, all guests will receive a Covid Policy prior to their stay and we now have a QR code to scan for test and trace on arrival.
On the ground floor there is a lounge with a large corner sofa and a cosy open fire. There is a dining room with a farmhouse table that seats 6 and a quiet reading nook with armchair and desk. This leads on to the modern, well equipped kitchen with fridge freezer, dishwasher and microwave and all the cooking utensils and equipment you will ever need; there is also a family bathroom with walk in shower and heated towel rail.
Upstairs there are three bedrooms. A master bedroom with a king-size bed with a top quality, pocket sprung and memory foam mattress, luxurious duck down duvet and high quality linen with a double wardrobe and chest of drawers. A twin room with a large wardrobe and another twin room with full size bunk beds are also on this floor. The bunk room has a TV and DVD player with HDMI cable so children can bring their own Xbox or PlayStation and DVDs.
As well as a range of books, cards and board games there is free unlimited fiber optic broadband, Smart TV with Free view including Netflix, IPlayer, ITV Hub etc and a DVD player with plenty of DVDs to chose from.
Out the back of the cottage is a small enclosed courtyard with an outside tap for washing off wet suits or wellies, and a washing line. There is also space to leave your surf boards or canoes.
Chapel Cottage is less than 200 yards from the distinctive twin harbour that provides a haven for the many fishing boats that land their daily catch. Here you can purchase a variety of locally caught fresh fish. There are also boat trips and sea fishing trips available. For those of you into angling, there is a fishing tackle shop that also organises fishing trips. If crabbing is more your thing, you can get all the supplies you need in the gift shop right on the harbour!
In and around the village you will find traditional pubs with roaring log fires, many great restaurants, shops such as Fat Face, Jenny Aves, Boots the chemist, and The Cornish Bakery. There are also cafes and of course, amazing fish and chip restaurants and takeaways, along with galleries, gift shops and well stocked delicatessens.
With so many attractions such as the Eden Project and The Lost Gardens of Heligan (walking distance from the cottage) so close by as well as several fishing villages, small coves and beaches for which Cornwall is famous for, Chapel Cottage is a great location for a special holiday whatever time of year.
Close by, over the hill to the east, is the village of Pentewan with its large safe, sandy beach, together with a fine pub and cafes.
For walkers, there is the South West Coast Path that joins both Pentewan (approx 45 mins to 1 hour coastal walk) to the east and Gorran Haven (approx 2 hour coastal walk) to the west.
Cyclists are well-catered for with The Pentewan Valley Trail and the Heligan Trail. If you do not wish to bring your own bikes, there is bicycle hire in Pentewan. There is also a diving club here.
A ferry from Mevagissey to Fowey runs daily between Easter and September. Here you will find many small, independent shops selling unusual gifts, artwork, clothing and books. If you’re a foodie then Fowey is home to many bistros, cafes and restaurants where you’ll find menus offering the best in local produce – Fowey River mussels are a highlight.
Small, well behaved dogs are welcome at Chapel Cottage.
