Town: With winding cobbled streets and a harbour full of boats, Mevagissey is the perfect Cornish fishing village. Leading along the coast in both directions are stunning walks past sandy beaches, high cliffs and hidden coves to explore. The village itself has a good selection of restaurants and pubs whilst the local area is full of excellent holiday activities. The Lost Gardens of Heligan are just a short drive away, the Mevagissey to Fowey ferry runs daily between Easter and September and the harbour at Charlestown is home to a number of Tall Ships. Also nearby is the world famous Eden Project, just 11 miles away, which features fascinating tropical biomes. No matter what the time of year, this lovely area of Cornwall has something for everyone.

Quaint nautical cosy cottage
Left on 12/20/2009 for a stay in August 2008 | Mrs Grimshaw
This cottage is decorated throughout in a nautical theme - very pleasing and some tasteful artefacts. Good location, only a few minutes from the main shopping area and the harbour. Throughly enjoyed our holiday here.
Lovely relaxing harbour town

The property is lovely and is situated in a really relaxing place. Its very quiet but is still a stonesthrow from Mevagisseys harbour and shops (amongst which you will find some really nice local crafts). We had some lovely meals out at the local restaurants and pubs and the fish and chips were amazing. I think the most challenging part of the holiday was getting the car back out of the VERY VERY!! tight lane leading up to the cottage. You are warned about this but I can't emphasise enough if you have a car bigger than a mini or KA I would advise you to not even go there because it really is tight. My car came back with the injuries to prove it. So just factor in £25 extra per week for the car park just down from the house. Whats great is you are on the coast path in minutes and you are really close to Heligan gardens which is great for a day out. The property does have storage heaters which I just couldn't get the hang of as they seemed to come on at odd hours in the middle of the night and then not in the day so if you are going in the winter be prepared with some jumpers.
The property doesn't have a washing machine so again factor this in if you are going for more than a week. Overall I thought the stay was great and the comments above are just minor things so people can be prepared. I would definately go back and stay there as I loved the atmosphere of Mevagissey, the property is really well decorated with some lovely touches such as candles. It's very welcoming and peaceful and the owner is extremely helpful.
