The West Country region

Mild climate ideal for walkers, fishing, surfing, scuba diving, golf. The bustling picturesque harbour town of Mevagissey provides a perfect base for your holiday in South East Cornwall. Mevagissey climate benefits from the Gulf Stream, which flows up from the Caribbean. Cornwall enjoys short winters and the Mevagissey climate is mild all year round so you will find that the flowers bloom earlier than many other places.

A colourful history of boat building and smuggling. which still retains its traditional character it has a selection of quality pubs, restaurants and shops. Wander in the evening around the moon lit harbour. Or walk down to Portmellon with its 15th century pub directly on the beach. Fowey within a few miles and a ferry to and from the harbour in summer makes it a pleasent experience. Pentewan sands a large beach near by ideal for surfers.

There a a lot of places of interest nearby and cycles for hire locally are a great idea, local boat hire for fishing or day trips from the harbour to take in the sights. Deep sea fishing is available daily. Sample the local catch in the fresh bought restaurents in the harbour. Mevagissey is truely a gem of Cornwall and the unspoilt harbour makes it a visit to remember.


Mevagissey is a small harbour in a conservation area. Unspoilt yet has a wealth of shops, inns, restaurants with a warm charm which will appeal to all. There is sea fishing from harbour or with local boat hire try it yourself. Visit world minature railway, Folk museum, aquarium within the village.

Famous Eden Project, Fowey, Charlestown, Gorran Haven to name a few places to visit, also within a couple of miles is the famous Gardens of Heligan or Tregrehan Gardens.

Great coastal paths for walkers. There are plenty of watersports including scuba diving, water skiing, kite boarding and surfing.
