Just love staying here
This was our 3rd stay at Mengarth. We love the location, the community, the pub and the house. The village is so peaceful but also a real community with the fishermen, the cadgwith singers on Friday ( covid & weather permitting) and a really friendly folk night too - both at the Inn. We love the fact Megarth it is dog friendly, the kichen is well equipped the house is spacious and comfortable and for us this year the addition of sky internet connection was a nice surprise. It was good to get a call from the owner to ensure we were happy with everything. We have already booked for next year - which says it all! Thank you to Julian.

Mengarth had ideal accommodation for us in a stunning location.
We have stayed on or near the Lizard for many years but this location in Cadgwith was the loveliest we have seen. The accommodation perfectly suited our multi generational /multi household party. I enjoyed cooking in the lovely kitchen. A few minor items need attention so loses one star but it is a holiday let. Just booked to return next year -first time ever.

Sadly disappointing
The house is in a stunning position in a beautiful fishing village but the inside of the house is sadly very disappointing. The kitchen is modern and fully equipped, bar oven gloves we makes using the oven dangerous as only one thin tea towel to protect hands. However the bathrooms were a massive let down, we were aware the jacuzzi bath jets don't work but this means when having a bath black sludge comes out the jet holes and it smells of dirty drains. The main downstairs shower smells of urine, as does the inside of the bedroom wardrobe. The bed in the downstairs front room is broken so one slide slants making it difficult to sleep on, the mattresses are all too soft and the bottom sheet on the king size bed was not fitted and too small for the bed so every time you turn over it moves with you. When you charge £1,900 for one week stay in your house the standard needs to be much higher. Beautiful location but the house needs a lot of money re-invested back into it.

Great house, fab location, thoroughly recommend it
Had a perfect stay at this fabulous house. It's in a great location just a minute from the sea with easy access to plenty of walks in the stunning Cornwall countryside. The locals are very friendly and in the idyllic pub down the road you can even join in with the 'sea shanties'! The house is large, well equipped and well maintained and we were particularly impressed by the comfortable beds. The sauna was a real treat too. We can't wait to return.

Fantastic location
We had a lovely holiday to Mengarth and loved the cottage. The location was beautiful and just a short walk to beach and pub Cadgwith Cove and Cellar restaurant. Also in village was a small shop and amazing gift shop. The house was beautiful with a lovely patio to sit on when weather was good. Kitchen was lovely and big and very modern with all the utensils needed to cook for an whole large family. Only little niggle I would say was freezer part of fridge freezer was very small but the fridge was enormous so don't get too much frozen food if you get a shopping delivery which luckily we hadn't. Kitchen was cold at beginning of holiday so a small heater or radiator may be an idea but didn't affect us as we did plenty of cooking . Sauna was lovely and enjoyed using this on a couple of times . We will definitely be coming back to house again just wish it took 10 people lol as have to organise an holiday next time for that many people. I really did not want to write this review as like to keep good cottages secret. Also must be noted as reversed way of house there are stairs upto main lounge and kitchen and one lovely bedroom . Not sure if a stairgate was provided for stairs as we didn?t have young children but maybe worth asking if taking young children. Overall a fantastic property and loved the place x?
