This lovely cottage is in Polgooth, near to dog friendly Lost Gardens of Heligan, the Pentewan Valley trail and dog friendly beaches at Gorran Haven and Porthluney are not too far away.
Once the home of Mevagissey’s first bank, this imposing Grade II listed village-centre building has been really beautifully renovated, with care taken to retain many original features. There are six bedrooms sleeping up to ten people, a dining room, living room on the first floor and a balcony to look out over this bustling fishing harbour, which is very pretty and a popular holiday destination. Mevagissey, is also a wonderfully dog friendly village. There are really fantastic dog friendly pubs and restaurants such as The Ship Inn, The Fountain Inn and The Sharksfin on the harbour front. Dog friendly Porthluney and Gorran Haven beaches are nearby, and some smaller beaches along the coast path allow dogs. The Lost Gardens of Heligan nearby are also dog friendly.
This is a truly spectacular property, with beautiful gardens overlooking St Anthony lighthouse and the sea beyond. There is a huge kitchen diner, fabulous and beautifully styled open living spaces, a huge games room — even electric cars for the kids, and fantastic powershowers and bathrooms. St Mawes is a short, steep walk down the hill, and boasts a beautiful harbour, lts of wonderful shops and restaurants and a Tudor castle. You can also enjoy dog friendly boat trips around the Fal and up to dog friendly Trelissick. We’ve stayed here and cannot recommend it highly enough.
Set high above the historic harbour in Penzance overlooking the world famous Mount’s Bay towards St Michael’s Mount is The Abbey, one of Cornwall’s most important listed buildings dating from 1660.

Enjoy an historic drawing room with a roaring open fire, large gilt mirror and walls of books, along with huge arched windows that rise to the ceiling and open out onto the garden. The oak-panelled dining room, huge kitchen, seven bedrooms and a private walled garden with smooth lawn and sub-tropical planting. And do be aware, Penzance is a town on the up. The newly refurbished outdoor Jubilee Pool on the seafront is re-opening and there are several award-winning restaurants in Penzance and nearby Marazion.
