Fabulous cottage
Backlet cottage is absolutely beautiful, we stayed with friends for a week in August. It is situated within walking distance of the harbour which was great as two of our party went fishing everyday. We can't recommend this property highly enough, SUPERB, and we will be booking again for next year!!!!!

Superb Cottage
Lovely modern, super clean cottage where no expense has been spared on design, comfort and fixtures and fittings. Beautifully decorated, perfect location right in the heart of Mevagissey. Please note, no garden or courtyard so you will need to walk your pet quite a distance to find grass (our little dog will only wee on grass!) bless her Great having a bathroom on each floor, the beds were the most comfiest I've ever slept on! Quality throughout.

The cottage was beautiful. We had a lovely holiday in Mevagissey. The cottage was in an ideal location minutes from the shops and the harbour. We will definitely book again.

Comfort in a quaint Cornish village
Mavagissey is a charming Cornish village and Backlet Cottage is equally charming. It is right in the heart of the village which has some great pubs, delightful shopping and the Cornish Bakery with its friendly man behind the counter is one of many spots to check out. We really appreciated the fact that there was parking available just around the corner because finding parking could be a nightmare otherwise. You need to be able to cope with stairs at Backlet Cottage because the house is on three levels. It's ideal for two couples but probably not really suitable for children because it is quite small. Nevertheless the cottage is well equipped and we enjoyed our stay.

The cottage's d?cor was excellent - very clean with lots of light. The location was great and we enjoyed regular walks around the village as well as making excursions in the local area.
