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.
On the ground floor there is a lounge with a large corner sofa and a cosy open fire, Smart TV with Freeview channels and streaming and a DVD player. There is a dining room with a farmhouse table that seats 6 and a quiet reading nook with armchair and desk with USB socket. This leads on to the modern, well equipped kitchen with fridge freezer, dishwasher and microwave. There is also a coffee machine, a microwave and children's, cups, plates and cutlery. There is also a family bathroom with walk in shower and heated towel rail on this floor.
Upstairs there are three bedrooms: a master bedroom with a king-size bed, double wardrobe and chest of drawers, a twin room with a large wardrobe and another twin room with full size bunk beds and chest of drawers. The bunk room has a TV for gaming or watching a DVD and a DVD player that can be used with your Xbox or PlayStation should you wish to bring one with you.
As well as a range of DVDs, books, cards and board games there is free unlimited fibre optic broadband.
There is a very small enclosed courtyard with an outside tap for washing off wet suits or wellies etc, and a washing line with pegs. There is also space to leave your surf boards or canoes and a gate to keep your furry friends secure.
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 and gift shops. Moore's, the fruit and veg shop, also sell meat, freshly baked bread, milk and cream and all the cupboard staples you could ever ask for!
With so many attractions such as the The Lost Gardens of Heligan (walking distance from the cottage) The Eden Project (just a 15 minute drive away) 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. To the west is Portmellon beach where there is a small cafe and canoe hire shop.
For walkers, there is the South West Coast Path that joins both Pentewan (approx 1 hour coastal walk) to the east and Gorran Haven (approx 2 hour coastal walk) to the west. There are also many inland walks with breathtaking views! The South West Coast Path is just a 5-10 minute walk from the cottage!
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.
There is also a ferry from Mevagissey to Fowey that runs daily between Easter and September (weather permitting). In Fowey (pronounced Foy) 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.
