Escape to Mevagissey on the South Cornish coast to breathe the invigorating sea air and experience an ever changing seascape. By retaining a working fishing fleet,Mevagissey has so much more to offer, than just being a picture postcard Cornish village.
Our cottages (both with adjacent private parking) lie on opposite sides of the distinctive twin harbour, where fishermen's cottages tumble down the hillside to the quays below. Perched high, they command breath-taking views not only of the harbour but further along the coast.
Without the need to drive, take a short stroll and explore the labyrinth of tiny streets unchanged over centuries, as they twist and turn past ancient dwarf buildings of cob and slate. Here you will find fine restaurants rubbing shoulders with characterful pubs, cafes serving delicious Cornish cream teas and fresh crab or lobster straight from the boats. There is nothing more sublimely Cornish, than tucking into some local scallops or mackerel before ending the evening with a stroll along the harbour wall, as lights from the village twinkle on the water.
Positioned at the gateway to The Roseland, Mevagissey lies within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and is well placed for exploring this champagne coast and unpacking the rest of Cornwall. There are many accessible walks as the South-West coastal footpath is right on the doorstep. A ten minute drive will bring you to one of many delightful Cornish gardens, the Lost Gardens of Heligan and slightly further afield the world renowned Eden Project and cathedral city, Truro. Savour Cornwall's alfresco foodie culture at the Hidden Hut in Portscatho or Sam's on the Beach at Polkerris.
