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?

Good holiday cottage in beautiful village setting
We enjoyed our week in Mengarth (4 adults, 2 teenagers and a 12 year old). It's a beautiful Cornish fishing village with a fantastic friendly pub, cafe and gallery. We walked from Cadgwith to the Lizard one morning which only took a couple of hours. The house is large and the location has lovely views. Having a sauna was great to return to after swimming! It is definitely more 'country cottage' than 'urban chic' but this made us feel relaxed and at home. The kitchen was lovely and well equipped. Only downside was the mattress in the upstairs bedroom; it sags badly in the middle. We would happily stay here again.

Freshly cleaned and well-presented, Mengarth is a wonderful house in an excellent position. Clearly a lot of new interior decoration, even a new kitchen! Super outdoor view of the sea with seating and tables for us all to enjoy the weather (even tho there is a sauna indoors!). This is a big house with room for 8 and dogs which we recommend to everyone and anyone wanting to visit this beautiful old-world fishing village - away from it all, with a good pub and the friendliest of neighbours.

Perfect Pet Friendly place to stay in a fantastic location 2 mins from Beach
The location is amazing with fantastic views across the Cove, the house was perfect with French doors from both the living room and the kitchen area that lead out on to an amazing sun terrace overlooking the cove and this quaint Cornish village. Our stay was absolutely perfect the property was very large and airy with the reverse level accommodation making the most of the stunning location. The house was very clean and tidy, and very well equipped, and the sauna was just the thing after a bracing walk along the cliffs We particularly enjoyed the local beaches and amazing walks nearby and the local pub was a fantastic place to wind down after a day out, with folk music evenings every week to round off the perfect holiday...?? Can't wait to return next year
