Great property in good location. Very quiet but close enough to town and pubs/restaurants etc
Dr Heinsoo June 2018
This cottage is just amazing! It is right in the heart of Mevagissey, which is one of the loveliest fisher villages I have ever been too, my family really enjoyed it! There are so many good seafood restaurants, pubs and tea rooms, the atmosphere there is just amazing! The cottage is really great itself too, it is equipped with everything you need, it was very clean and cozy and it has a lovely backyard! It can not get any better!
Mrs Pearce June 2018
Lovely spacious family cottage in an excellent location the entrance to the property is not for the faint hearted!!
Mr Minogue September 2017
Thank you for providing such first class accommodation. Also for accommodating our preferred time scale. The fresh milk and beverages was a nice touch and made us feel very welcome. We will definitely return some time and re-live the Mevagissey experience.
Mrs Kelly July 2017
Beautiful cottage Everything you could wish for and so close to the harbour.
Mrs Couch May 2017
Yes, the entrance to the car park is tight, but we expected that, thanks to excellent information provided prior to arrival. A very handy location with a level walk to the harbour as billed, which was perfect for those less mobile in our party. Love Mevagissey. Being a new build, this cottage doesn't have the charm that you can get with more traditional properties, but that is made up for by modern facilities, spacious and comfortable accommodation and many welcoming finishing touches like the huge supply of books, games, etc. We played scrabble every night, didn't even switch the TV on until the final evening and I almost finished four views of Mevagissey in jigsaw form! The holiday just wasn't quite long enough!
Mr Winkworth September 2016
Great position near harbour for artists. My husband did several small paintings
Mrs Rogan August 2016
Beautiful cottage in great location for the town and harbour. Very comfortable beds and lovely quiet location. We ditched the car and used the bus as a good service. Easy to get to Heligan and Pentewan beach.

Entrance to the road leading to the house was poor and entrance to the parking area very poor.Car was bottoming each time we went in & out

We're so sorry that you had some problems parking your car - we know that the entrance to the car park is very narrow and the parking area itself is gravelled. We've not had reports of cars bottoming out before, but if guests have any difficulties, there is a further space nearby which doesn't require using this parking area. Tanya, Customer Support

We enjoyed our stay, car parking was not as difficult as some of the rewiews suggested. At the side of the cottage is a little lane that leads into Meva without the steep hill.
Mrs Heasley April 2016
Real gem of a cottage. Everything about the property was an above expectations experience. Milk in the fridge on the first day and a box of Cornish Fairings biscuits was a really welcome touch after a long drive. A generous selection of books and board games really appreciated, we were able to have the first unrushed family game of Scrabble for years, thank you!
A selection of tourist brochures and a custom-made folder with a selection of walks in Cornwall was very useful. Cannot praise this enough. And Mevagissey village itself was a total delight, with the harbour, a selection of good quality and good value for money restaurants.
Mrs McGrath November 2015
Cottage was everything as described. Perfect location with everything you need in the cottage itself. The parking entrance was fine if you did as suggested in the details - somebody guide you in & out. We used the space 100 yards away as it made getting out of the entrance easier. We also saw a car reverse out which would potentially make it easier for others. Mevagissey is a great little location even in the winter. Would definitely recommend the cottage.
Mr Russell October 2015
Great cottage lovely position easy walk to shops restaurants and pubs. good position to access other parts of Cornwall
Mr Bird September 2015
The cottage was very comfortable, very well equipped and in an excellent location being close to the harbour but far enough away so not be disturbed by it. The entrance to the car park is extremely narrow, the angle of approach when exiting the car park is awkward with several cars hitting the wall during our stay. 3 series BMW and Ford Focus suffered paint damage. Audi A8 only a couple of millimetres to spare each side.

It's great to hear you had a lovely holiday at Oyster Cottage. The car park entrance is narrow, so we recommend that it's more suited to medium-sized cars (such as VW Golfs). For anyone who isn't confident negotiating the entrance, or with a larger car such as your Audi A8, there is another space a very short walk away (about 100 yards) for guests to use - we're sorry to hear that other residents scraped their cars, but are glad that you didn't!

Beautifully furnished cottage.
Mrs Redfern November 2014
Fabulous cottage ....modern , clean and very comfortable and perfectly located for cliff walks and the lost gardens of Heligan and the Eden Project ....not to mention a wander around the quirky old village of Mervagissey....brilliant !!
Mr Quartley November 2014
As always Classic Cottages exceed our expectations. We have used them several times and are very happy to continue doing so.
Mr Madden October 2014
A really nice place well equipped and close to the village centre. Don't worry about the parking I have a large car and had no problems getting in and out. Would I stay here again yes.

If you are looking for a cottage right in the heart of the harbour and central to most attractions this is the cottage to Stay in. First class.
Mrs Birt September 2014
Lovely little town, fantastic location. Easy walk to harbour front. Easy drive to Lands End, St Ives, Falmouth, Newquay, Polperro, Fowey, Looe. Very clean comfortable cottage with all the amenities of home.
Mrs Matthews September 2014
Would recommend it especially with the gentler path to & from the harbour. It is in a very handy and the harbour and centre of Mevagissey are only s few minutes walk.
Mr Thomas February 2014
Oyster Cottage is a very comfortable and very well appointed. The access to the shops and the harbour was down a steep slope, but it was very short and it added to a sense of adventure in this delightful village. With the Gardens of Helligan and the Eden Project not too far away, we felt it was very central, yet off the beaten track.

Thanks so much for your review - we're glad that you enjoyed your time in Mevagissey. The village is full of traditional charm and does include narrow winding streets - some of them steep. There is a little footpath that follows around to the back of the cottage (past the garden) which gives a much gentler access down to the village centre and harbour - ideal if you've had one too many cream teas!

Ms Langmead August 2013
Cottage was just as nice as hoped. People friendly and helpful. Will definitely use Classic Cottages again.
Mr Ellison August 2013
Oyster Cottage is fantastic! The location is marvellous (but the entrance /exit to the car park is narrow). Overall, well worth staying there.
Mrs Bennett August 2013
Lovely cottage with very nice interior and all the facilities we needed. Parking with a people carrier was not easy, very narrow. Reversing out from the lower car park was the only option. Very much enjoyed our stay.
Mr White May 2013
We have already left positive feed back in the guest book at the cottage. We could not find fault with the cottage. All of our party enjoyed the stay. It was ideally situated, being close to the harbour and also was within reach of a variety of other interesting places to visit.
Good or bad, we publish all the reviews left by the guests who have stayed in this cottage, with the few exceptions stated in our Review Guidelines.
