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.

Comfortable cottage with nice outside space in the heart of Mevagissey. Easy booking & access to the cottage. Highly recommend.

A fantastic well equipped cottage. Spotlessly clean . A short walk from the harbour. Great owners who were extremely helpful. Highly recommended

Great location, near to harbour and village. Lovely spacious cottage. Well presented and appointed. Beautiful welcome package. Loved it so much have booked for same time next year.

Lovely Cottage. Excellent location near to harbour and sites. Dog friendly with bowls, biscuits left at cottage. Small enclosed garden which is enough with garden furniture. Only downside, very very tight space to get into parking space - need to be really careful !!

This was one of our best holidays ever. Great location and a lovely cottage. Thank you.

Beautiful, spotless cottage. The cleaners do a super job, and the owners ensure a holiday cottage that is cozy and welcoming. Lovely new garden furniture this year too. Aspects offered reliable, easy booking and checked that we were happy once we had arrived. We absolutely love our week in Cornwall every year, and Dolphin Cottage makes it perfect. We cannot wait to visit again next year! Thank you

Dolphin Cottage is great! Perfect location (although up hill and little roads but do-able if you go slow!). Amazing to have a parking space to close to the harbour. The cottage was perfect - bedrooms great size, amazingly clean. Lovely touch to have the dog towels and biscuits!

Lovely little cottage just off the harbour. Clean and adequately equipped and the bed was very comfy. Came with a parking space which is always good. Can recommend the scones in Martin's Bakery and the fish and chips just off the harbour!

Fantastic accommodation in the pretty harbour village of Mevagissey. Great location, clean and tidy house. Perfect for our family of four and dog, who appreciated the safe and enclosed outdoor space. Beds super comfy and towels thick and fluffy!

Dolphin Cottage is a very conveniently located,warm and comfy property. Minutes from the beautiful harbour through the back gate. Spacious and bright kitchen/diner and enclosed courtyard ideal for dogs. Really thoughtful to find dog towels and dog bowls at the cottage. Really comfy beds. Take care when entering the car park, the entrance is very narrow although we soon got the hang of it. Once inside, it is easy to manouevre and park. Mevagissey has a fantastic little place on the harbour selling fresh fish, a really good green grocer, book shop and convenience store, not to mention the array of food shops and local art shops. We particularly recommend Olivia's sandwich hut and Philip Gardner's pottery is well worth a visit, selling beautiful handmade, coastal themed pottery.

Lovely warm cottage. Great location. Very good for dogs as courtyard is fully enclosed so no risk of getting out. Lovely soft bed in a big room too. It’s a steep walk up a hill, so not for anyone who would struggle and parking is tight. We opted for paid parking. Which isn’t expensive or far to walk. We have a VW golf and was nervous. Some bigger cars and vans could do it so it’s not impossible, but the risk would be high. Car park was cheaper than the risk of paying excess. Be careful of 1 way system during Covid. If you pass the road you can’t come back into village until 5pm unless you drive 6 miles round trip. There’s no diversions so may be a quicker way. But We parked up and walked back into village while the 1 way was in place.

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

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.

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.
