It is a small, unspoilt fishing village with a colourful history of boat building and smuggling, which still retains its traditional character and nowadays has a selection of top quality pubs, restaurants and shops. . Cornwall is a county of legend; Celts, Druids and King Arthur, plus the modern attractions of the Eden Project, Tate Gallery, the Lost Gardens of Heligan, and National Maritime Museum for you to explore..

The Eden project is 15-20 minutes drive away and a range of beautiful gardens (including Pine Lodge, Lanhydrock and Tregrehan) are within easy reach.

The Fowey ferry runs a scheduled service 7 days per week from the quay opposite the cottage (weather permitting).

Mevagissey has a range of good pubs and restaurants

Mevagissey - a magical place for your holiday. A traditional Cornish fishing village, where you can wander the narrow alleyways,

"Great holiday cottage"

Booking nice and easy and well handled.

The cottage had a nice feel to it especially with the log burner in the sitting room and views of the harbour and sea from the top floor. The stairs in the house are quite narrow and steep and you might need to duck the beams if you are tall but it all added to the character for us. The patio out the back also was a great sun trap and we were roasted sitting out there even in April.

Well located one street back from the harbour and so easy to walk along to the many fantastic places to eat and obviously lots of fish on offer which you can see coming off the wee boats in the harbour.

The parking was included in the main village car park and the attendant who gave us the pass was really helpful in giving directions to the cottage too and telling us where we could drop off the bags for the short walk up to the cottage.

All in all we had a fantastic break for the week and would certainly return if in the area again.
