The Old Shop apartment is a ground floor apartment within a Grade 2 listed Georgian town house in the picturesque Cornish fishing village of Mevagissey. Dating back to 1830, this 3 storey property has recently been renovated to a high standard from top to bottom. The middle and top floors make a 4 bedroomed holiday cottage to sleep eight people (see Courtyard Cottage, listed separately). The apartment, converted from the shop on the ground floor (sleeping two / four people), is ideal for those who would prefer to not have to use stairs. Situated 200 metres from the harbour and just 20 metres from the car park, The Old Shop apartment is ideal for couples and small families to explore the region with beaches, cliff-top walks and the Lost Gardens of Heligan only minutes away.

About the neighbourhood
Mevagissey has numerous restaurants and family friendly pubs, often hosting live music.

There is a model railway and free museum within the village along with an activity centre which has a variety of activities. There is also a local scuba-diving club and the Pentewan cycle trai...
