Robin and Rosie very much respected our request for a peaceful stay, greatly appreciated.. Excellent location for exploring the area, so many wonderful places to explore nearby. Mevagissey an utter joy. Cottage very comfortable, garden perfect and secure for our 2 small elderly dogs. Great walking from the door.

Booked this holiday apartment for a weeks stay for me, my wife and adult daughter.. Spoke to the owner Robin on the phone before we travelled and he emailed me directions to avoided going through the centre of Mevagissey. He also gave me tips on places to visit. This is a really nice apartment / extension with two good sized bedrooms attached to the main owners home. There was suitable parking for two large cars. Both bedrooms had en-suite bathrooms. One bedroom had a large double bed with the upstairs bedroom having a king size bed. Comfortable living area with seating for 4 to 6 adults. Kitchen was fully functional with electric cooker, microwave, toaster, filter coffee maker etc which was fine for our stay. Outside private garden with table and chairs to enjoy the sunny weather. We really enjoyed our stay. There are some very narrow roads around this part of Cornwall I advise those with satnavs to turn off quickest route selection and don’t follow the route without checking the roads are suitable for your car. Some roads are are very narrow just a bit wider the your wing mirrors with few or no passing points. Be prepared to reverse.

Nectan is a lovely warm comfortable cottage and ideal if you have a dog.. The surrounding area has lots of dog walking opportunities in all weathers and some great cafes to walk to. We went to the shipwreck museum at church town and even the dog enjoyed it.

Lovely warm cozy cottage, short very steep walk to some great little shops, good dog friendly pubs serving great food and a perfect harbour with fresh fish sold on the harbour side..

Superb cottage and facilities, made very welcome by the owners who also left us some food and drink on arrival.. Great base to explore the rest of Cornwall but also enjoyed Mevagissey as well. Many thanks to Robin and Rosie!!!!

The property was lovely, clean and well equipped.. Mr Murphy was there if needed but by no means intrusive.

Very comfortable, home from home, in the pretty fishing village of Mevagissey.. Just a short (steep) walk down to the harbour. Lovely meal had at The Salamander. Take the ferry to Fowey, we saw porpoises both there and back! Visit the Lost Gardens of Heligan and walk along the left-handside of the coast and down 200 steps to the most beautiful secluded cove. Thank you so much for the bottle of wine and biscuits ...tea coffee milk etc. Just the perfect little base..lovely peaceful garden too.

Our hosts were very welcoming, we felt very comfortable at our temporary home.. The layout is perfect for a family or two couples travelling together. Just the right distance from the busy village and parking on the property was very convenient. We would recommend this holiday cottage without reservation.

A really nice holiday home in a quiet location - spacious and clean with a nice little sitting out area through the patio doors with views over the fields.. Robin, the owner, was really pleasant and helpful. Mevagissey is a really nice Cornish fishing village with plenty of eateries to suit all tastes and a couple of good pubs. The only downside of getting there from Nectan is the extremely steep hill (I think Robin's 100 yards from the village is more than a little optimistic!!!), however, we managed it on a number of occasions but if you are older or have small children I would suggest you think carefully before booking. That said, if you want somewhere to stay in Cornwall that has a parking space you have a price to pay!! All things considered, it was a lovely holiday home and we had a great stay.

Friendly and helpful landlord.. Very pleasant cottage. The wood burner helped keep the place cosy with the weather we had the week we stayed.

Nectan is by far the most comfortable, spacious and well equipped cottage we have stayed in.. The owners, who live next door, are extremely friendly and knowledgable about the local area. A delightful base for our holiday and well worth the climb back up the hill from harbour and shops

Absolutely fabulous cottage love it so much that this is our third year in going back. The place itself is cleaned to a very high standard and has everything you need.There are two spacious bedrooms both with having ensuites. The open plan living/kitchen area is quite spacious and can easily accommodated four of us. The garden is great sunny all day and is also secure which was good to know as we had a little dog . The owners themselves are fabulous hosts very welcoming and are always around if there is a problem or you need anything.Overall this is a fantastic property and place hope to go back next year even though we wish we could stay forever

Really nice and calm feeling when you first walk in and location was great, although the hill to and from the town / harbour is short and steep.. Very clean. Would recommend.

Extremely comfortable, flexible accommodation (two good-sized double bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms) which was perfect for our stay with my elderly parents. The cottage was well-stocked, with everything we needed - we really appreciated the milk, wine, biscuits, upon arrival! The hosts were very welcoming - they were there if we had any questions but otherwise were very quiet and left us to enjoy our holiday. The garden was ideal for my parent's dog - very secure so we could leave her outside all evening whilst we watched her from the living room. We can't recommend enough and we will definitely be returning!

The view from the lounge was fantastic. It was very peaceful with lovely walks around Mevagissey. The owners were very welcoming and helpful. The enclosed garden was great for our Labrador. In general, the cottage was worth every penny and we would definitely stay again.

Nectan was great as were the owners. Definitely worth going back again. The views across the valley are great as are the sea views from the patio.

Superb accommodation, lovely location and incredibly helpful and thoughtful owners. A great base for exploring the surrounding areas with plenty to do. Would thoroughly recommend this place - we would certainly go back.

Everything was clean and tidy, the owners had thought of everything to add that extra touch. A lovely house ideal for a family or two couples. The garden was ideal for dogs and the house was near to the village and local walks.
Mrs Rimmer

The cottage was warm and cosy with everything provided. It was refreshing to find a dog friendly cottage which was so clean and of a good standard of presentation. The garden was pleasant to sit in and admire the view of the surrounding countryside and the sea.
Mrs Moseley

A lovely and clean cottage. Very thoughtful extras such as fresh flowers, milk, biscuits etc. on arrival. Excellent secure garden for dogs. It was very good value for money.
Mrs Roberts

We particularly liked the location of the property which was a short, pleasant walk in to the village. The property over looked hills at the back with a sea view to the side which enhanced sitting in the garden. The property was spotlessly clean.
