This pretty cottage is set in a quiet row of cottages in the picturesque village of Mevagissey. The house has a private courtyard for dining alfresco and a short stroll will bring you to the centre of this quaint and historic, working fishing village which has diverse restaurants, bustling cafes, local pubs, quaint galleries and a variety of shops. The working harbour provides a port for many fishing vessels that sit side by side with tourist boats that provide fishing and sight seeing trips around the dramatic coast line. From spring to autumn, a ferry runs from the harbour across the bay to the town of Fowey which can be seen in the distance. Mevagissey is the perfect destination for all types of holiday whether it’s a peaceful break, beach holiday or activity break on this picturesque stretch of Cornwall’s coast. The beaches of Pentewan, Port Mellon and Gorran Haven are all easily accessible. Port Mellon beach is in a small sheltered cove, perfect for relaxing, swimming, kayaking or exploring. A cycle track at Pentewan provides an alternative route to one of Cornwall’s most famous tourist attractions, the Eden Project. The cycle path joins a network of trails right into the heart of Cornwall’s historic China Clay area. A short walk or cycle ride from Mevagissey will bring you to one of Cornwall’s best and most dramatic gardens, the Lost Gardens of Heligan where you can admire the Italianate garden and explore the ‘Jungle’ garden. Other attractions in the area include the National Trust’s Lanhydrock House, Caerhays Castle and Garden, a vineyard, the Shipwreck and Heritage Centre at nearby Charlestown, home to tall sailing ships and a regular set used for film and TV programmes. Nearby St Austell has shops, supermarkets, bowling, swimming pools and leisure facilities. With all these attractions to explore, The Saltings provides an ideal base for families.
