This 300 year old terraced cottage is in the heart of Mevagissey and sleeps three people in two bedrooms.

Kips Cottage is a 300 year old terraced cottage in the heart of Mevagissey which sleeps three people in two bedrooms. These are a second floor double room and a first floor single. There is also a bathroom with a separate WC and an open plan living area with a kitchen, dining area and sitting area with a woodburner. With so many leading attractions such as the Eden Project and The Lost Gardens of Heligan so close by as well as several fishing villages, small coves and beaches which Cornwall is famous for, Kips Cottage is a great location for a special holiday whatever time of year.


The cottage was centrally located and situated on a busy, narrow main street - visitors should be aware that traffic, and people, are in very close proximity to the front of the cottage. The cottage is very old and fairly small - the ground floor, which opens directly onto the street (so watch animals and children carefully as you open the door), is perfectly well equipped but cramped, dark and gloomy. The kitchen is open plan and tiddly but adequately equipped. The bathroom on the first floor is OK but the separate toilet is so small that the door has to curve outwards so that you can fit in. My partner and I are of average size and just about managed to squeeze in - anyone who is larger-framed/taller would really struggle. Agents needs to make this clear in the publicity. The top floor bedroom is also open to the rest of the cottage - so make sure that you visit with people with whom privacy is not an issue. Overall - cheap and well located but pretty miserable and not worth a return trip.
