Nice property very central to Mevagissey so perfect for a little stroll down the hill to the harbour. People had complained about parking, it really was not an issue for us and we have a fairly large car being a 4x4. We would recommend the property as we had a nice break away

August 2020

Accomodation and location good for Mevigessey. Take note of vehicle width on entry as you do have to turn to get on to access ramp which makes it a tight for anthing wider than 2.1m. (have to pull in wing mirrors).

Easywalk down hill and into Harbour area and easy access onto Coastal Path for walkers.

Holidays in Mevagissey

Wish you were here already? Watch our Mevagissey webcam here>

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.

If you are lucky enough to be here during Mevagissey Feast Week in the summer, do take full advantage of the activities being held. Said to be the oldest festival in Cornwall, it attracts exhibitions, live music, parades, a fete and wonderful firework display.

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

Pentewan Beach is the nearest large sandy beach situated a little north of Mevagissey. Please note that dogs are not allowed on the beach from 1 March to 1 November.

Polstreath Beach is also known as Mevagissey beach. It is located just north of Mevagissey and is accessed via the coastal path and steep steps down to the cove. 

Gorran Haven beach can be reached via the coastal path, or is just a short drive away. Just two miles from Mevagissey, the quaint village of Gorran Haven has some lovely pubs and cafés, and a gorgeous sandy beach which is a great spot for swimming and kayaking. 

Walks

There are some wonderful walks in and around Mevagissey, especially if you take the coastal path. You can head south to Gorran Haven, a small fishing village with a beautiful beach, just two miles from Mevagissey. Alternatively, if you travel north, you can head towards Pentewen, another small village with a lovely beach. From Pentewen, you can take the trail through the woods, or if you prefer, you can hire a bike from Pentewen to explore the woodland on wheels.

Perfect location, very comfortable and cosy cottage VERY tight entrance to parking at cottage we have stayed before and know our car well but we saw others have scrapes getting on or out. Extremely well equipped, mostly clean and modern but bathroom slight let down and shower isn’t worth bothering with as no pressure lovely bath though. Overall would recommend and stay again

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for taking the time to send in your comments. It is a very narrow entrance to the parking, so we try to make this as clear as possible within the description so that guests know what to expect before arrival; we are sorry if this had not been what was expected from that. We have since spoken with the property owners about the shower pressure and they have informed us that they are investigating the possibility of a new water tank to help improve water pressure though we can't say when this may installed at this stage. Thank you again for your helpful comments and we are glad to hear that you enjoyed your time here. Tanya, Customer Services

The cottage was the perfect place to stay for our family holiday in Mevagissey. The cottage had a really nice feel and was the perfect base, providing everything we needed for us to enjoy our time there.

The roads to the cottage are a little challenging but with care can be navigated.

Will look at this property again for future stays.
