“I am extremely fussy and expect things to be done correctly in life and I can truly say there is no room for improvement in Little Pebble House…… PERFECTION! cannot wait to return” – Review Wendy D
Named after two Irish saints, St Meva and St Issey, the village dates back to at least 1313 and during the 1800’s Mevagissey prospered on the back of the abundant source of pilchards out to sea. Around the maze of streets you’ll find plenty of seafood restaurants and there is nothing more sublimely Cornish than tucking into some local scallops or mackerel and ending the evening with a walk along the harbour wall with lights of the village twinkling on the water.
Little Pebble House is situated on a quiet no through road on a level in to the house. It is an approximate 7-10 minute stroll from Mevagissey village, initially up a short and naturally steep incline, leading onto a flat and level road, then a last short incline to Little Pebble House.
Closest beach is less than 5 minute walk (480 mtrs) where you can also enjoy wild swimming/SUP/Kayaking from
A mere 5 minutes away by car are The Lost Gardens of Heligan, which underwent a famous restoration after decades of neglect and now brims with an amazing array of sub- tropical flowers, trees and plants and also the Pentewan trail, an easy-going 5 mile round trip from the beach at Pentewan to the village of London Apprentice and back. The trail runs along the bed of an old narrow gauge railway which once took clay and tin ore to the harbour at Pentewan until it silted up and the railway ceased operation in 1916. We are also a short 15-20 minute car journey to the infamous Eden Project.
Great base to explore Cornwall, Poldark filming destinations and just 10 miles from the Eden Project
Little Pebble House is also only 30 miles from Padstow, 50 miles from Bude and just 49 miles from Zennor near St Ives, a great surfing destination.
Mevagissey also has its own, lesser known as yet, Boddingtons! A very successful fruit and jam producing farm situated in the village.
The historic City of Truro is only 20 minutes away by car and offers an array of shops and art gallery’s, (well-known and independent) stocking local produce for you to take home with you, restaurants and bars and of course, the beautiful Cathedral.
