Home from home

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

Excellent traditional cottage with designer touches in great location

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.

Fantastic cottage

We first stayed at 4 Elm Terrace in August 2016 and loved it so much that we booked again to go this August. The cottage is quaint and bursting with character. It has plenty of space and books, jigsaws, dvds etc to borrow whilst staying there. The owners are friendly and helpful and any issues (a slight problem with the fridge door in our case) are dealt with promptly. Great care is taken to ensure guests comfort. We can't wait to visit again and would strongly recommend the cottage to others.

Miss Cadby

Quiet but near the village, great walking around.

Mrs Marechal

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.

Ms Deacon

Beautiful cottage and very close shops and harbour - enchanting place. Would love to go back.

Mrs Green

The cottage was excellent and all the details in your brochure were spot on.

Mrs Stephens

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.

Miss Blackwell-Smyth

This cottage was lovely, beautifully furnished and only a short walk to the harbour. Great place with very friendly people.

A lovely cottage in a great location. Lots to do around the area and the local people are very friendly.

Mrs Cherrill

4 Elm Terrace was like a home from home. We were very reluctant to leave!

Mrs Andrews

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.

Mr Leslie

Great location for seeing Cornwall, the cottage had great character and the locals were very friendly.

Mrs Scott

Beautiful picture perfect cottage, great location in a great fishing village. Lovely places to eat and drink, and the locals are very friendly. Will be going back very soon.

Mr Franks

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.

Ms Wilkinson

Nice cosy cottage just a short walk from harbour. Loved Mevagissey and the cottage provided a cosy, comfortable base to explore the area.

Mrs Grant

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.

Mrs Jutzi

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.

Ms Fryer

A perfect holiday in a great cottage in a brilliant location!

Mr Peplow

Cottage ideally situated, comfortable and clean. Perfect for an extended family plus dog holiday.

Mr Smith

Excellent location and excellent cottage, would recommend to all.

Mr Franks

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.

Miss Allen

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.

Mrs Smith

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