Argel Lowen

£567 - £1340 per week

Argel Lowen means 'happy retreat' in Cornish. This apartment is set overlooking Mevagissey harbour and the bay beyond, with fantastic views from the open plan living area where guests can sit back and enjoy lazy days watching the boats come and go. With two spacious bedrooms, there's room for the whole family or plenty of flexibility for groups of friends to enjoy a relaxing trip to the Cornish coast. The interior has been decorated and furnished in a contemporary style with white walls and large windows helping to emphasise the sense of space. The house has a laid-back beachy feel with comfy sofa to sit back and relax on after a walk along the coast and with sliding doors drawing you towards the view over the sea. The property also comes with its very own patio and balcony, perfect for that morning cuppa!

As well as the village itself having everything from a museum and aquarium, a boat trip can transport you to the close by town of Fowey and you can try your hand at catching your own dinner with a fishing trip from the harbour, Or you can simply enjoy South West Coastal walks on your doorstep, heading out towards Hemick beach while watching the sunset.

Holidays in Mevagissey

Stay in Mevagissey and you’ll be perfectly placed to explore all that the south coast of Cornwall has to offer. Take a ferry trip to Fowey, visit the Lost Gardens of Heligan or spend a day at the beach at the nearby Pentewan Sands.

Best known for its harbour and fishing boats, Mevagissey still boasts as being part of Cornwall’s thriving fishing industry. Fresh fish can even be bought from the hut on the harbour wall, located a short stroll from the village aquarium, once the lifeboat station. Wander around the harbour area, with its narrow streets, fascinating shops and galleries and recall its smuggling history, or just relax in the bars and restaurants and coves and on nearby beaches.

There is a ferry boat which runs from end of April to beginning of October from Mevagissey to Fowey three or four times a day (don’t miss the return journey!) – journey time about 35 minutes. You may be lucky and spot some playful dolphins!

Beaches near Mevagissey

Situated on the south coast, which is known for its balmy weather and beautiful blue seas, you won’t be short of beach days during your stay in Mevagissey.

Portmellon beach – Just over the hill from Mevagissey lies the pretty village of Portmellon with its perfectly sheltered, sandy beach. At low tide, you’ll find a fantastic stretch of sand ready and waiting for beach games, while high tide sees the waves lapping mere feet from the road.

Pentewan beach – A wonderfully large expanse of white sand that’s just down the road from the bobbing boats of Mevagissey, Pentewan is a stunning spot for some sunbathing and sea-bathing. You’ll also find plenty of opportunities for watersports, with windsurfing, kayaking and sailing all popular options.

Polstreath beach – Also known as Mevagissey beach, this pretty cove is a short coastal walk from the harbour of Mevagissey. The climb down might be on the steeper side but you’ll be rewarded with perfect swimming conditions and stunning views.

Gorran Haven beach – Alongside the gorgeous sandy beach at Gorran Haven, which is only a few miles from Mevagissey, you’ll find lots of lovely pubs and cafés where you can rest and refuel after a day in the waves.
