The West Country region
Located in the far west of Great Britain on a peninsula tumbling into the vast Atlantic ocean, almost completely surrounded by the sea, a magnificent coastline wraps around Cornwall for almost 300 miles with a climate which is said to be around 5 degrees warmer than the rest of the UK on average.
In the last decade Cornwall has emerged as one of the world's iconic destinations. From the dramatic coastline of the north to the sheltered bays in the south, from ancient moorland to soft river estuaries, an abundance of ancient remains, surfers, walkers, sailing buffs, gastronauts and visitors simply seeking a break from a hectic world have discovered a fascinating, vibrant culture, first class accommodation, food to die for and a naturally thrilling adventure playground.
MEVAGISSEY is one of the most charming and unspoilt fishing villages on the South Cornish Coast. With its white and colour-washed properties perched on the hills surrounding the two harbours, the narrow twisting labyrinth of streets retain the character of old Mevagissey.
Much of the coastline adjacent to Mevagissey is cared for by the National Trust, easily accessible and very popular with walkers. There is an Aquarium housed in the old RNLI Life Boat House and the Mevagissey Museum which was previously used for the repair and building of smuggling vessels.
The World of Model Railways is an amazing place to visit with over thirty trains and The Lost Gardens of Heligan or Caerhays Castle are very close by. You can also visit the ruins of Portgiskey - with cottages, cellars, gardens and boatyards, abandoned in the late nineteenth century, while the famous Eden Project is just under 10 miles from us. Other places well worth a visit are the old pilchard cellars, the 15th Century Church at Gorran, Polmassick Vineyard, Caerhays Castle and Dodman Point. More modern is the county town of Truro, notable for its quietly dignified Georgian buildings and its magnificent Victorian cathedral, which is just 15 miles from Mevagissey and well worth a visit.
There are mackeral fishing trips around the bay but If fishing doesn't interest you, then perhaps you could be tempted with a ferry trip to nearby Fowey (pronounced Foy). During the summer, this regular passenger ferry runs between Fowey and Mevagissey with fantastic views (sometimes spotting dolphins and basking sharks).
With wonderful sandy beaches, harbours, winding streets, restaurants and shops; not to mention its smuggling history and abundance of local attractions, Mevagissey have something to offer everyone.
