Mevagissey – stunning views

20 Oct 2017

After guests stay in our properties, we are always excited to read their comments in the Guest Book.  Often, we learn that ambitious itineraries planned long before they set off, are quickly abandoned.  Once they take in our stunning views over the idyllic harbour, along the fabulous coast and far out to sea, they realise the location is even better than promised.  It can be a challenge, even for the best photographer, to capture not only what the eye sees but what the heart feels.  The views and spectacular cliff side setting of Marine Point, along with the perched position of Seafarers above the ancient Mevagissey harbour, called for the specialist skills of Aerial Cornwall.



Aerial Cornwall operates a drone image technology, used for many different purposes in and around Cornwall.  We simply wanted stunning images to encapsulate the amazing view and jaw dropping location of both properties, within the beautiful fishing village of Mevagissey.



Following numerous weather forecast checks, Matt arrived in early July and the drone was up up and away. The final images are now on our website, as well as our complimentary guest postcards, and they are even better than we could have hoped for.



Over the coming months, we will use a variety of images of the harbour and village on social media – watch out for your favourites!

Take Two at Charlestown

09 Oct 2017

The unspoilt town of Charlestown, on the outskirts of St Austell, is only a twenty-minute car journey from Mevagissey.  The port was built by the entrepreneur Charles Rashleigh in the late 18th century, to serve the thriving copper and china clay industries.


The harbour area is a film-makers dream, as the houses and surrounding area have not changed much since Georgian times.  The Grade ll listed harbour is the home port for a famous collection of old ships employed in film projects all over the world.  Closer to home, they are just perfect for the filming of the BBC’s remake of the 1970’s hit series Poldark, starring Aidan Turner as the Cornish hero.  The harbour has also been used for Dr Who, Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland, and many other films and television programmes.


The displays in the Shipwreck and Heritage Centre show a tremendous range of maritime history dating back to 1715, as well as artefacts from over 150 shipwrecks.  The town also has plenty of restaurants, gift shops and galleries to be enjoyed, whilst taking in the breath-taking views over St Austell Bay.
