Rental Description

The wonderful, spacious Polstreath House sits in the heart of Mevagissey, a fabulous, charming seaside town. It comes with six charming bedrooms sleeping twelve guests, an open plan living space with a modern kitchen and another brilliant kitchen and dining area. If there is not quite enough room in Polstreath House, we also feature the next door Polstreath Cottage which boasts two beautifully appointed bedrooms.
Mevagissey is a fabulous spot with excellent restaurants, bars and cafes, a museum, an aquarium, a picturesque harbour, wonderful shops, sandy beaches, and hidden coves. Winding cobbled lanes tumble down the hill, sprinkled with pretty cottages. The stunning Lost Gardens of Heligan are very close by and the popular holiday resort of St Austell is only just over five miles from the cottage. You can explore the tropical biomes of the Eden Project, the Tall Ships harbour of Charlestown, the Shipwreck Treasure Museum, the pretty Tregrehan Gardens or take a ferry from Mevagissey to Fowey. You will discover a fabulous coastline, the famous beaches and gardens of the beautiful Roseland Peninsula, Truro with its shops, restaurants, theatre and cathedral and the Cornish Coast Path.
Very smart in appearance from the roadside, Polstreath House is built over several different levels. On the lower ground floor, you will find an excellent kitchen with a Aga styled cooking facility, modern cabinetry, a raised breakfast bar with stools and a superb dining space. It is fantastic for large groups, very sociable and great for special celebrations. There is also a wall mounted television, a feature fire and gorgeous flooring. From here you can head out to a large garden sprinkled with mature plants and the terrace.
There is a second living area with another modern kitchen and a delightful living space with comfy sofas, a period fireplace, a television and another modern dining table and chairs. This set up means that children can happily watch a movie upstairs while the adults enjoy a delicious meal, drinks, and laughter downstairs.
The six bedrooms are split across two levels. One level enjoys three double rooms, all with double beds and the other offers one double room with a television, another double and the last room is a delightful twin in the eaves. Each of the bedrooms is presented with its own mellow colour scheme, attractive soft furnishings, and lots of seaside themed art. There are three bathrooms to share, all beautifully fitted. Two of the bathrooms enjoy showers while the other offers a slipper bath, perfect for an indulgent dip to sooth your stresses away.
Outside, you will find a delightful terrace with alfresco lounge and dining furniture together with a quality barbecue and a garden. It is a lovely space when the sun is shining, and you just want to pop a cork and relax with a glass of your favourite tipple while your barbecue masters get busy preparing a delicious fresh fish feast. When you are ready to leave your peaceful haven, the shops, bars, restaurants, and beach of Mevagissey are just moments away!Polstreath House enjoys a wonderful location in the centre of the seaside town of Mevagissey. This lovely town is sprinkled with narrow streets, steep valley sides and gorgeous houses that lead down to the distinctive twin harbour where you will discover colourful fishing boats bringing in their daily catches of skate, lobster, plaice and sole. It looks as pretty as a postcard with the harbours surrounded by pubs, cosy cafes and delightful galleries. The town is named after two Irish saints, St Meva and St Issey with the village dating back to at least 1313. During the 1800’s Mevagissey prospered from the abundant supply of pilchards and today you will find many seafood restaurants nestling along its maze of streets. It is lovely to tuck into local scallops and mackerel, washed down with a chilled bottle of wine followed by a harbour walk enjoying the twinkling lights. Shoppers delight in the shops which range from jewellery, glassware, and paintings to delicious Cornish pasties.
You will want to visit the amazing Lost Gardens of Heligan which sit within walking distance of the town. They are romantic and very pretty. After World War I the gardens fell into ruin and the rejuvenation has created two hundred acres of bliss. The award-winning gardens allow you to journey across the world with historic rhododendron boughs of Sikkin, Maori carved tree ferns, an Italian garden, and an Alpine inspired ravine. The jungle experience offers intimate pathways edged with sub-tropical planting along with watercourses, a rope bridge, bamboo tunnels and gigantic rhubarb and bananas. There is a woodland walk where you can relax with bird song and look out for woodland sculptures, ancient woodlands, and grazed pastures. The Heligan Kitchen offers a delicious lunch menu, and the tearooms offer hearty home-cooked meals and Cornish cream teas.
Taking a trip of the Mevagissey to Fowey ferry is popular. You will cross the sheltered St Austell Bay to Fowey Estuary, passing peaceful coves, hidden beaches and probably some dolphins and seals. The pretty town of Fowey is on one side of the Fowey River with Polruan on the other. It is a bustling small port with commercial and leisure boats. During the Second World War, Fowey was the centre for air-sea rescue and one of the places from which the D-Day invasions were launched. St Catherine’s Point is on the Fowey side of the harbour entrance where it functioned as a lighthouse in medieval times. St Catherine’s Castle below was built during the reign of Henry VIII to defend the harbour entrance. It is accessible when walking from the pretty Readymoney Cove. Fowey has a fascinating history. On Fore Street you will find the Old House of Foye, a medieval house built in 1430. It is now a shop but the walls, beamed interior and fireplace are pretty much the same. During the summer, Fowey Town Hall opens as a museum and small aquarium. Fowey is a delight with craft shops, galleries and cosy restaurants lining the narrow streets. Daphne du Maurier is the most famous former resident of the town. She is celebrated with the Du Maurier Festival each May and at the Literacy Centre next to the church. A car ferry crosses the river to Boddinick. The ferry house was originally the du Maurier family home and later the home of Angela du Maurier, Daphne’s sister. The Fowey Estuary is stunning with boat trips galore.
Mevagissey boasts excellent walks inland and along the coast path. You can walk between Pentewan and Mevagissey and on to Chapel Point enjoying stunning scenery. Above, you will discover oystercatchers, gulls, cormorants, and the odd kestrel hovering over the cliff. The paths are lined with wildflowers in the spring and early summer.
Fishing is popular in the town. You can hop aboard a deep-sea fishing boat and hook into some of Cornwall’s bigger species including sharks, cod, eels and of course mackerel. If you are into cycling, the Pentewan Valley Trail is only two miles from the town. It is a maze of cycle trails through woodland with scenic streams and lush swamps.
The Eden Project is based in one of Cornwall’s clay mining pits behind St Austell and should not be missed. It is a world-famous attraction that is best known for its tropical and Mediterranean biomes. You will learn about biodiversity hotspots in the world and enjoy a bird’s-eye view of the biomes on a long zip wire. There are many special events including an ice rink over the Christmas period. Alternatively, Caerhays Castle, designed in the 19th century by John Nash is less than twenty minutes away, set within rolling hills and gardens. Caerhays Beach is lovely too so you can combine it with a beach day.
The old market town of St Austell is another charmer, famous for its china clay mining industry. Today it offers beautiful beaches, sub-tropical gardens and a fantastic range of shops, cafes, bars, and restaurants. On the edge of town, the St Austell Brewery offers tours and tastings. St Austell Bay enjoys the stunning beaches of Porthpean, Carlyon Bay Pentewan, Polkerris with its water sports and Charlestown, a pretty historic port that is often used as a film location.
