With the hustle and bustle of Mevagissey just 5 minutes away, the stunning Lost Gardens of Heligan 8 minutes away, The Customs House is the perfect location. The Eden Project is 20 minutes away near St Austell, well worth a visit. The sandy beach at Pentewan is only a few minutes walk away, which also has a wonderful beach restaurant. There is a great local pub with garden a few minutes in land. Beautifully decorated and equipped with all the comforts of home, the cottage looks over the main square and out onto the harbour and sea beyond. Accommodation Ground Floor: Small Porch, kitchen, dining room, bathroom with large shower. The dining room has a sofa bed which makes a small double bed. First Floor: Reached via open staircase to a living room (please note open staircases are not ideal ...With the hustle and bustle of Mevagissey just 5 minutes away, the stunning Lost Gardens of Heligan 8 minutes away, The Customs House is the perfect location.
