Now taking bookings for 2020

We love it when our customers come back to our holiday house in Mevagissey.  Its our third year and we cant help it but they just keep returning, thank you, we must be doing something right. Each year we endeavour to continue to upgrade the house so that our clients can enjoy the house at its best at all times.  The one thing we cant update is the weather and the sea views, the view is always breathtaking and the climate pretty much doesn’t let us down in South Cornwall, it boasts the warmest UK weather and the South Cornish Coast is always that little bit warmer than the Rugged North Coast.  We look forward to seeing you at Skysail!
