Featured in BBC-TV's Fisherman's Apprentice, Cadgwith is one of the most mesmerising fishing/artist villages in an area of outstanding beauty. This is a place for all who love the smell of sea air, fresh fish from the boat, rock pool expeditions, cliff top rambles, sea shanties, time with family and friends and good food and beer at the 300 year old smugglers' inn. Cadgwith could not be lovelier; it is the destination to slow down and unwind, where modern world stresses are shut out. Cadgwith is a little village with a big social calendar; gig racing, a regatta, summer barbecues and live music feature through the year.
Cornwall's visitors are constantly tempted back to the beautiful coastline, tiny fishing villages, hidden coves and the world-class surfing. Whatever the reason, Cornwall has long cemented its place as one of Britain's premier holiday destinations.
Reviews of Mengarth
"Had a perfect stay at this fabulous house. It's in a great location just a minute from the sea with easy access to plenty of walks in the stunning Cornwall countryside. The locals are very friendly and in the idyllic pub down the road you can even join in with the 'sea shanties'! The house is large, well equipped and well maintained and we were particularly impressed by the comfortable beds. The sauna was a real treat too. We can't wait to return."

"We enjoyed our week in Mengarth (4 adults, 2 teenagers and a 12 year old). It's a beautiful Cornish fishing village with a fantastic friendly pub, cafe and gallery. We walked from Cadgwith to the Lizard one morning which only took a couple of hours. The house is large and the location has lovely views. Having a sauna was great to return to after swimming! It is definitely more 'country cottage' than 'urban chic' but this made us feel relaxed and at home. The kitchen was lovely and well equipped. Only downside was the mattress in the upstairs bedroom; it sags badly in the middle. We would happily stay here again."

"Freshly cleaned and well-presented, Mengarth is a wonderful house in an excellent position. Clearly a lot of new interior decoration, even a new kitchen! Super outdoor view of the sea with seating and tables for us all to enjoy the weather (even tho there is a sauna indoors!). This is a big house with room for 8 and dogs which we recommend to everyone and anyone wanting to visit this beautiful old-world fishing village - away from it all, with a good pub and the friendliest of neighbours."

"Mengarth is a spacious property with parking for 2 cars, a bonus in Cadgwith. The village we know well and love staying there. This is by far the most light & airy accommodation with a good, well equipped kitchen. We have already booked for next year, this probably says enough."

"Previous review does not reflect our experience in May! We found Mengarth to be utterly cottagy, charming, quirky-Cornish, well-equipped, stunning position and views (no need to get in to the car to walk). Loved the hammock, singing fish, garden, very modern kitchen with granite and slate. Very clean. We will definitely return!!!!"

"This house is dated and in need of a good clean, broken furniture/ odd and old. The outside area is a mess and garden furniture can only seat 4, the house should cater for 8 people. Bathrooms need repairing, broken tap, toilet and one of them you have to sit on sideways because of the room. This house needs updating, painting a then a good clean and then it would be a large beautiful house in a stunning location."

"Near the sea in gorgeous village. Poldark country. Fishing village with thatched rooves as if time has stood still. Expansive views. Fishermen go out on their boats daily, it's a sight to see them return with their haul of all sorts of fish; fresh seafood locally. Great beers in friendly pub, with lots of music from days of yore; sea shanties on Fridays and folk music Tuesdays and many Sundays. Beautiful views, fresh air, occasional dolphins and seals in the nearby cove. Crystal clear sea just down the road. Rarely busy. House has lots of amenities. Four double bedrooms and plenty of room. New kitchen and lovely area to sit out to take in the star-filled skies. Large garden, very well kept, a delight. Highly recommended. Visit Cadgwith, you'll never want to leave."
