About the neighbourhood
The Cottage is within a short car/bus ride of Heligan Gardens (or a very pleasant walk for the fit and healthy).1.5 miles

The Eden project is 15-20 minutes drive away and a range of beautiful gardens (including Pine Lodge, Lanhydrock and Tregrehan) are within easy reach.

The Fowey ferry runs a scheduled service 7 days per week from the quay opposite the cottage (weather permitting).

Mevagissey - a magical place for your holiday. A traditional Cornish fishing village, where you can wander the narrow alleyways,
browse gift shops and art galleries, try the local ale in one of the many pubs, have a fine dinner in one of the excellent restaurants
and finally walk around the moon-lit harbour. The perfect setting for your perfect Cornish h...

How to get there
Airport: Newquay: 7.0 km
Railway: ST Austell: 4.0 km

The M4, M5 and M6 motorways have made travel to Cornwall simple and straighforward, while within Cornwall itself the two major holiday routes, the A30 and A38 continue to improve, with fast dual carriageways as far as Bodmin, and most of the way to Penzance. Recommended route - join the M5 to Exeter, and then take the A30 to St. Austell and then the B3273 to Mevagissey
A flight to/from London takes about one hour. Please see Newquays website for up to date details of flights. Bus or taxi from Newquay to Mevagissey should take less than one hour.
Flybe operates between Gatwick and Newquay and from June 2013 Easy Jet will be flying Southend to Newquay.

Bus service between Newquay airport, Newquay and Truro
