There is also a 2' 6" x 5' 9" guest bed stored under the single bed, which can be pulled out just at bedtime.
The bathroom has a bath, low-level WC and basin.
In the sitting/dining room there is a remote control colour television and DVD player. The fully-equipped kitchen includes an electric cooker, kettle, microwave, toaster, refrigerator, washing machine, iron and ironing board etc. Electricity is included in the tariff.
The flat is available for you from 3.30 pm on your first day and should be vacated for changeover at 10.00 am on your last day. Keys are held in the village close to the flat.
MEVAGISSEY village is known for its busy double harbour, fishermen's cottages, narrow streets, model railway, museum, many restaurants, pasty shops and pubs. It has a mini-market, greengrocers, cake and souvenir shops, post office and church. Passenger ferry boats go back and forth from Mevagissey to Fowey and fishing boats do hour and day trips from the harbour.
The coastal path is nearby, as are many lovely beaches, some with cafes and car parks, some quiet and owned by The National Trust. Portmellon, Gorran Haven, Vault, Hemmick, Caerhayes, Pentewan and Porthpean beaches are all within 5 miles of Riverside.
For garden lovers there are many gardens, some with teashops, including Trewithen, Trelissick, Trebah - with its own beach - and, of course, the spectacular Eden Project and The Lost Gardens of Heligan.
In St Austell, 5 miles away, there is a leisure centre, cinema, ten-pin bowling, brewery, the usual shops, China Clay Museum, and at Charlestown a Maritime Museum.
