“Great place in lovely location. Really enjoyed waking up to the views. Very clean and well maintained. Comfy beds and well equipped kitchen. All communications from the host were quick and full of detailed information.

Highly recommend”

Lesley Abbass – March 2022


“We had a brilliant stay at Coastguard Cottage. Despite some challenging weather (we visited during Storm Eunice), we enjoyed exploring the local area, including the Eden project, Gorran Haven, and Portscatho. When the weather cleared, we even managed a dip from the little bay at Portmellon!

The cottage is extremely comfortable and well-equipped and we loved the cosy wood burner, big sofas, and sea views. The kitchen and dining area were perfect for two families, and as well as eating out at some fab spots, it was a real pleasure to stay in and cook too!

Thanks Mark for a great few days.”

Tamara Atkin – February 2022


“What a great location. A steep walk finds you into the middle of the village in 5 minutes. The views out of the windows breathtaking. The property is really well equipped with all you need to cook stuff. Great fridge and freezer.

Really Fantastic.

Richard Whitehouse – January 2022

“Well presented cottage ideally located overlooking the harbour. Great views and good range of local facilities to hand. A very enjoyable stay.”

Nicolas Greenwood – September 2021


“Great location with amazing views to wake up to across the harbour and sea.

House provided more than enough space and comfort for our x2 families (4 adults, 4 kids) and dog visit. All useful essentials to hand in the kitchen.

Straight forward communication from the host – which made life easy.

Be prepared to walk to the harbour village as it’s on a steep hill!

Would certainly visit again if in the area.”

Wes Scott- September 2021


“We had a lovely week in Coastguard Cottage and even saw a pod of dolphins from the lounge window seat. It is a great location – quiet and away from the summer traffic in town but an easy walk down into Mevagissey, something we often enjoyed in the evening. The cliff playground area, just a few minutes above the cottage was great for an early morning dog walk, sunrise views and playground fun for the younger ones. Polstreath Beach was walking distance too and many of our favourite beaches were an easy drive away; Porthpean, Porthluney, Polkerris, Pridmouth and Gorran Haven.

The cottage itself was clean, comfortable and very well equipped with room for us all (adults, children and dog) to relax. We wouldn’t hesitate to book again!”

“We enjoyed a great week in Mevagissey at Mark’s cottage. It has a lovely spacious downstairs area and clean modern bathroom. Great views over the harbour.”

Portia Ashton – August 2021


“Superb house, great location as long as you don’t mind a steep hilly walk back up. 3 generations of our family plus dogs had a super week despite the not so good weather.”

Barbara Watts – August 2021


“Beautiful location and a lovely property. Well appointed with good parking and impeccably clean. We had a great stay.”

Paul Flanagan – August 2021


“Really amazing stay at the Coastguard’s Cottage in Mevagissey. The house was really clean and well provided for. Short but steep walk to and from the harbour but good aerobic exercise! Helps to walk off the pasties and fish and chips. Great coastal walks.

Definitely recommended.”

Dave Noble – July 2021


“We had a wonderful week staying in Coastguards cottage. Beautifully located, and in absolutely immaculate condition.

This is our first experience of Airbnb and it has gone above our expectations, highly recommend this as a place to stay!!”

Clare Lucas – July 2021


“Coastguards View is a real “home from home”. A beautifully renovated cottage in a really super location with stunning views over Mevagissey. Beds were really comfy. We really loved the garden with private sunbathing deck where you look out to sea. Even the car parking bays had a private deck with great view!”

Clare Laker – July 2021


“A lovely well equipped cottage in Mevagissey – close by is the lovely harbour with its shops and restaurants and also close to hand are fab walks and beaches.

Mark is a fab host and was always happy to help

We had a great time.”

Sarah Fairham – June 2021



“Fantastic location and very well equipped cottage. Recommended.”

Colin Burnet – October 2020


“It is a fantastic cottage with everything you might need inside.  We would definitely recommend it to others.  The views are absolutely spectacular especially at sunset and sunrise.  It was so easy to go to town and not need to use the car, your parking area was essential. 

The fish and chips by the harbour were fantastic.  We loved all the little shops in the village. As the weather was so good we managed to get a few walks in along the coast path to Pentewan, Vault Beach, Heligan and out to Pentewan along the woodland path.  On the less good weather days we did Truro and Charlestown and visited friends at St Day. 

All in all, a really great holiday.”

Ann-Marie Davies – October 2020


“Wonderful holiday in a lovely place. We were very lucky with the weather.

The cottage is spacious and has been renovated with taste. We loved the large kitchen and dining area. Also the open plan of downstairs. Upstairs the bedrooms are attractive and spacious. The whole house was spotlessly clean. The views from the cottage are fantastic. We liked the welcome tray. Thank you ! We very much appreciated finding the basic necessities such as toilet paper, cling film, aluminium paper, cleaning products, salt, pepper etc

The cottage totally came up to our expectations.”

Jan Wickison – September 2020


“We enjoyed a fantastic holiday in Mevagissey staying at Coastguards View.

The property boasts a fabulous location overlooking the harbour with great views and is located just a short walk from everything you need. The property has been really thoughtfully designed with a superb open plan downstairs with beautiful exposed beams and brand new kitchen and flooring … plenty of room to easily accommodate two families holidaying together. Upstairs the bedrooms are comfortable and spacious and again plenty of room for everyone. Outside there is a lovely quaint courtyard area, a large sloped lawn with sea views together with generous parking made a perfectly pleasant holiday.

Would definitely recommend and we will definitely be returning! “

Angela Chandler – September 2020


“Fabulous location in stunning surroundings. Beautifully restored home in a quaint fishing village cove. Fitness levels will be enhanced.

Thank you for a sparkling clean stay. Very comfy beds, linen spotless. Perfect holiday with our family. Thank you Mark. Will definitely return.”

Joanne Lindsey-Hill – September 2020


“What a great find! Fantastic views across Mevagissey and out to sea, well equipped with everything we could possibly need, tastefully furnished and only a very short walk to the best coffee, pastries and fish and chips ever! The teenagers were particularly grateful for the comfy sofa and digital TV!!

15 minute walk to the most perfect swimming beach and a short drive to Eden Project and lots of other beautiful beaches. Managed to walk along the coastal path every morning before breakfast – so much to see!

Mark has thought of everything and we’ll definitely try to return soon.”

Anouska Plaut – August 2020


“Coastguard cottage is a great place to stay. We stayed for a week with our children and parents in law. The cottage has recently been renovated and is decorated beautifully. It was spotless when we arrived, and when I say spotless, it really was! I don’t think I’ve ever seen cleanliness to such standard before.

The cottage is spacious, comfortable and well equipped. It’s location is fantastic. It is easy to get to without having to navigate the one way traffic system in Mevagissey.

The quay is literally five minutes walk away, more like 10 minutes coming back as it has steep roads to climb but the views are worth a quick stop.

There are great views of the sea and harbour from the bedrooms and dolphins can easily be spotted. There are many lovely restaurants at a stone throw, a good selection of independent shops and easy crabbing and fishing for children and adults alike.

We would be very happy to come back in the future and stay in Coastguard Cottage.”

Belen Leggatt – August 2020


“The house was lovely. It’s in a great position, with gorgeous, romantic views to the sea. There’s plenty of space and everything worked well.

We had plenty of walks on the nearby coastal path and visited a few beaches, which were more or less empty because they were slightly off the beaten track. Overall, a wonderful trip, which could have been improved only by the absence of Covid! Thanks for a great holiday.”
