FREE WELCOME PACK consisting of a proper Cornish Cream tea and a bottle of wine on all stays of 4 nights or over.

In the heart of the village, Over Sea is a wonderful holiday retreat. It is just a few metres from the water's edge in this historical and popular Cornish fishing village. There's loads of space to spread out inside and loads to do outside. This is a particularly good apartment for families with teenagers as there is so much to do inside and out, on their own or with the family.

The space

Over Sea, Under Stone is a marvellous 3 bedroom apartment set in the very heart of Mevagissey. We have one king size and two twin bedrooms, sleeping six in total.

The master bedroom is at the back of the house, just off the living room. We have a VI Spring mattress for total luxury with 13.5 tog duvet and the finest bed linen.

The two twins are at the other end, right at the front and overlook Jetty Street. This gives everyone space to get away from each other. Teenagers can have their own room each or bring a friend. Alternatively the arrangement works perfectly for a few couples to holiday together.

The lower twin room has beds without foot boards for people that need more space to stretch. Again the mattresses are pocket sprung for ultimate comfort and dressed with the finest linen.

The upper twin beds have wonderful Bedknobs and Broomsticks type beds for the perfect flights of fantasy.

As well as a range of books, cards and boardgames, we also have unlimited wifi, Sky TV, a PS3 player with 2 controllers and a wide range of games plus a DVD player with lots of DVDs to chose from. No one is going to be bored staying here!

The kitchen is fully fitted with a dishwasher but with so many great pubs and restaurants nearby you can take a complete break from cooking. It sits within the large open plan living area; to one side is the comfortable living area with a great snuggly sofa and at the other side is a dining table for six and a quiet reading nook.

The one bathroom is fully fitted with an electric shower over the large bath.

Please note that although we are metres from the waters edge, we are tucked in the harbour buildings for shelter and so we have no outside space or views of the sea. Just other harbour properties. Our excellent rates reflect this.

Guest access

The property is very old, 1780, and has all the joys and issues of its age. Lots of little steps up and down in the front two bedroom, the top bedroom is tucked between rooftops and you can easily hear the seagulls. However, the apartment does have every modern comfort and convenience, sky, wifi, dishwasher etc.

The apartment is accessed via a steep outside staircase off an alleyway shared with one of the village pubs. Again the incredible historic location does mean that you don't get your own sweeping driveway and private approach, but you do get an incredible sense of the higgeldy piggeldy life in an historic fishing village. Parking is not included but we recommend Sunny Corner, they are the nearest long stay car park, about a two-minute walk away and have great rates for advance bookers.

Interaction with guests

We own the bookshop downstairs, so if you need us please just pop in.

The flat is really well equipped, modern and comfortable. Surprisingly spacious. Liz left scones, cream, butter, jam, milk and wine for us, perfect! For a short break it's perfect. Steep steps leading up to it, a fairly early awakening from the businesses close by, but really good value for money, ands fantastic location

We had a great trip to Mevagissy and the flat was super. Very comfortable and well equipped with everything you need. Fantastic to be so close to the harbour and all the fab shops and restaurants.

This short break was booked for six adults to celebrate my aunts 60th birthday. The apartment was well presented and had every amenity you would require. It was especially spacious, allowing for all 3 couples to have the opportunity to have their own space, if that was what was needed but we were also able to watch TV together and play Monopoly (which is a family tradition) at the table. Cooking facilities and equipment were more than adequate and the bedrooms met our needs. The 'welcome' Cornish cream tea and bottle of wine were an especially nice touch and we were very grateful after our 8 hour drive! The location was the most spectacular; a 'spit' away from the harbour; which is traditional and beautiful. The restaurants and bars are brilliant and the locals are friendly. Negatives; it was challenging only having 1 bathroom for 6 adults, but we worked it out and it's not like we didn't know the number of bathrooms available. The 'downside' of being so central is that it can be a little noisy if you're in one of the twin rooms facing the street. But only when it's festival time or a weekend. To be quite honest, I still fell asleep quite easily and I found the 'clatter' quite comforting! It was lovely being able to access Liz and Steve by walking into the shop below, but also nice to be left to our own devices, unless we needed something. They were instantly responsive if something did come up! We would definitely recommend this apartment and my Aunt said it was her "best birthday ever!" Thank you Liz and Steve for a most amazing break! We are definitely looking forward to our next stay in Mevagissey, it was just amazing!

Great property a stones throw from the harbour & perfectly located for day trips throughout Cornwall. I found the parking round by the lighthouse much better value (£5 for a full 24 hours) Communication with Elizabeth was top notch. We were fortunate to have some hot weather & luckily bought a fan as we found it quite warm in the apartment, will definitely return.

Great apartment close to Mevagissey harbour with all the home comforts you need for your stay. Elizabeth was good at keeping in touch although we didn't see her; the wine and cream tea on arrival was a nice touch.
