Britannia Studio is a one bedroom annex attached to our Grade 2 listed Britannia Cottage and believed to be one of the oldest properties in Mevagissey. We are ideally situated just a few hundred yards from the beautiful working fishing harbour of Mevagissey, with its numerous pubs, restaurants and shops. National Cycle Route 3 passes within 100 yards and there is easy access to the South West Coastal Path.

The space
Britannia Studio has been brought back to life after 3 years of painstaking renovation, where the natural Cornish stone walls have been exposed and many other features revealed. The cottage and studio are built on bed rock this is visible within the studio area.

Locally it is believed Britannia Cottage and Studio was once a farm house with a thatched roof and surrounded by fields. It is believed to date back to the 15th century. The stone walls are three foot thick and held together with cob (a mixture of clay, straw and sometimes horse hair). The studio walls have also been pointed with a lime mortar, although the original cob can still be seen in the main cottage.

The studio has its own entrance which leads into the kitchen area with breakfast bar, oven, hob, microwave and small fridge. There's a stone fire place with yew beam, which according to the local conservation officer was once an old communal bake oven. This has a portable gas fire. From the kitchen there's a small toilet and hand basin with limited space. The sitting area with a two seater leather sofa, TV, Wifi, views of the exposed bed rock and stone walls that rise from floor to ceiling of the Mezzanine above. During the renovation we uncovered an old mooring ring or possibly a ring to tether an animal to, this can be seen on the bed rock. Throughout the ground floor of the studio, the floor is laid with slate and having the benefit of underfloor heating.

From the kitchen area, the bedroom is accessed from a small set of stairs. The stairs have a relatively sharp curve at the top. Some people might find these difficult to negotiate, especially if you are unsteady on your feet. There are however, bannisters for your assistance.

The bedroom area has a wooden double bed, clothes hanging rail, bedside tables, chest of draws, radiator, TV, a sitting area with two chairs, small table and two velux windows with views across the village towards the sea in the distance. This is a very bright airy room, with solid oak flooring, oak balustrade overlooking the sitting area below and exposed stone walls.

There is an en suite with shower area, sink, toilet and heated towel rail.

Britannia Studio has a small raised decking area next to the entrance, with table and two chairs. Ideal for you to sit out with a glass of wine after a hard days sightseeing.

We accept one large dog or two small dogs. We charge a £10 cleaning fee per stay for dogs, this is requested separately.

Although there is no parking at Britannia Studio, we have a parking permit for our guests to use free of charge. This is for Willow Car Park a short walk away.
