A fantastic / homely cottage which is a stones throw from the harbour. We had a lovely holiday and would definitely stay here again the next time we’re back in Mevagissey.

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.

A fantastic / homely cottage which is a stones throw from the harbour. We had a lovely holiday and would definitely stay here again the next time we’re back in Mevagissey.

Our first time staying in Mevagissey, we usually stay in St Ives but wanted to try something different. Mevagissey did not disappoint! Perfect for us as a family of 4 to try something a bit quieter. Crabbing on the harbour wall, fish & chips and some lovely local beaches. The property was perfect, nicely decorated and had everything we needed. Special shout out to Michelle in the office who was super helpful when we needed her.

A well equipped cottage. Beds were super comfortable. Location brilliant for harbour area. Would highly recommend this property

Great location not far from the harbour, but it is down a steep hill so would be an issue for anyone with mobility problems. Small outdoor area that gets the sun in the evening which is lovely. Very well laid out property with good size bedrooms & all the facilities / utensils you need in the kitchen. Only 1 bathroom so does take a while for 6 people to get ready and shower not very powerful. Overall good value for money.

Dock Of The Bay has been decorated lovely and has a home from home feel - with the added bonus of a wood burner. The beds and furnishings are very comfortable. I would recommend this property to family and friends.

Totally recommend this cottage we have just come back from a great week. Location is great.

Beautiful cottage close to the lovely harbour of Mevagissey. Unpleasant smell in the kitchen (possibly damp?) which needs checking out by owners. Otherwise we had a lovely stay and wouldn't hesitate to return. Would certainly recommend.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for taking the time to send in your comments. We are glad that you enjoyed your time here. Thank you for letting us know about that smell, it isn't something that has ever been mentioned by guests before, and the team could not smell anything upon checking this, so hopefully it was a bit of a one off, but we will keep a close eye out on further feedback and will check again on the next inspection. Thanks again and we hope to see you again. Lucy, Customer Services

Dock of the Bay is a lovely little cottage furnished to a high standard and we would definitely book to stay again!

Excellent stay n service

I would very much recommend Dock of The Bay, Mevagissey and Aspects Holidays.
