"If you cannot do great things, do small things in a great way"
(quote by Napoleon Hill)
Let Us Introduce Ourselves
Hello I'm Howie...That's Andy and over there is Tinks our resident puss-cat ... Also known as The Lads and Tinks
Now I'm tempted to show you a photo of us but at this stage don't want to scare you off before we have got to know each other...So my writting will have to do for now !
We love our life here by the sea immersing ourselves into the local community ( not just the pubs just incase your thinking it ) it makes us feel passionate about supporting local shops here in the village and also Cornwall as a whole to help preserve local communities like ours here in Mevagissey and the way of life here in Cornwall as a whole.
We work together as a happy little well oiled engine here at the b&b with Andy having the ideas, me fetching it and Tinks keeps out off our way while we do it.
No seriously Andy has the best eye for creativity and ideas so has the most influence in our style and taste however I do get my way sometimes and between us have created an eclectic mix with Art Deco in mind.
I will now be more professional ( not for long ) and tell you that we are in an enviable position on the South West Coast Path for you avid walkers reading this and (showing off now) nestled in the heart of the old original part of Mevagissey.
Offering guests cosy little eclectic rooms with pocket-size ensuite shower rooms ... (omg how good does that sound)
Our position is a winner being only moments on foot from all harbour side shops, cafes, bars and restaurants.
A unique Howie cooked candlelit breakfast from our a la carte menu ( see how i got my name in there) is served by Andy each morning from fresh & local produce.
Please note that I am very happy to cater for all dietary needs however nut allergy I can't...sorry! ... (too scary)
Free (Yes you heard correct ) off-site parking with cctv only 200 mtrs away is a big bonus and money saver here in Mevagissey... and is offered to all guests staying here ( How lucky are you )
Also good discounts on tickets to the Lost Gardens Of Heligan and Eden Project are offered to all our guests making this gem of a B&B ( my opinion ) a big winner.
So by now you will have noticed that we, Howie Andy & resident puss cat Tinks will be your hosts (Sorry)...Again please note we have a cat...( Antihistamine's at the ready if you forget )
What You Get At Our Humble Little Empire
Well where do I start ( should I tell the truth...Oh go on then if you can stand it!)
Well Here Go's ... guests enter this unique world of ours and tell us they take home a memory of an experience not just a stay.
Our promise of cleanliness and service is given to all our guests
A relaxed check in time is part of our exemplary service ( here i go again ) to help guests make the most of their arrival day...Please note this is not a standard service and is an added bonus to your stay as our gift to you!
Your A'la carte candlelit breakfast is in the style of the 1920's/30's...How fabulous and quirky is that !
Free Parking is guaranteed to all guests... However please note this is offsite and very normal for Mevagissey if you wish to stay in the heart of the village... so please except that you have to walk 2 minuites to and from your car...
Please Book Direct
Cos if you do we don't have so much commission taken from us which gives us a bit more to keep our humble little empire running and improving.,Thank you.
What A Stupendulous Position
I know i mentioned it before but it's worth mentioning again... cos it's true...Moments from all Mevagissey has to offer and 2 minuites to you car which is free.
With this in mind you also have one of the shortest strolls on earth to the sea and picturesque harbour side cafes, shops, bars and restaurants...Especially Roovray's Restaurant... ( amazing cuisine in an ambient setting...Booking recommended )
We are on the South West Coast Path and offer one night accommodation if we have a gap...If we don't look available online phone direct for your one night stay
Quick note...Seagulls live here too...That's Cornwall for you...You will love or hate them...Or both!
Have A Peek...We don't mind
Things To Know About Our 1700's Cottage Bed & Breakfast
Dating back to 1752 gives our fabulous (you can tell i love it ) traditional Cornish cottage some nice features but with this comes some points that need mentioning even though they are not life threatening or even life changing.
You can't park at the cottage and will have to park initially opposite the b&b and pay 50p if you dont' want to walk the 200 meteres from the free parking (full instructions and directions will be sent to you by us)
There is a slope to get the property and has been suprisingly likened to Mount Kilimanjaro by someone , however to put this into perspective Andy walked up it 7 days after having a double hip replacement (it's a slope)
"6ft.1" is as tall as you can be without bending on entry to the b&b and also in the "Little Spriggans Hideout" shower (there's a beam) but the "Pisky's Nooks won't be a be a problem there is also no height restriction in the "Garden Shed"
However the yacht style staircase is blooming quirky steep and narrow...You will have to bend and mind your head while taking your luggage up which feels a bit like the crypton factor (if you remember?) and is a challenge but not life changing...your hosts do this on a daily basis and are still here as living proof and are on hand to help with you luggage.
Remember your rooms are small...There is limited but adequate hanging space, shelf and draw space also space under your bed for cases when opened (how kind are we) ...Separate storage of your cases can be very happily arranged.
Howie Andy and Tink's guests get everything they would expect from a b&b plus something a little different, leaving you feeling that you have not just had a stay but an experience...However with this in mind leave you expectations at home... just enjoy the ride...Thank you!
Don't Forget Your Brekie
Arguably the highlight of our guests stay is our unique A' la Carte candlelit breakfast cooked to order and served from only the most scrumilicious fresh produce.
Coeliac, vegan, vegetarian & lactose free brekies are very happily catered for on request...thanks my lovelies!
Served in a most ambient setting in the low beamed ceiling breakfast room.
Some guests say they were worried about the shared table of themselves and two other guests however found it the highlight of their stay with happy conversation and tips to share even friendships have been made.
A hoary oak table and timeless chairs are a fitting host for the 1920/30's breakfast setting of original china, champagne glassware, silverware and proper job napkins.
A really unique and stylish start to your day
