£429 - £1167
Book

This three storey town house is just a hop, skip and a jump from the centre of the stunning Cornish fishing village of Mevagissey. Retaining many traditional features with flag stone flooring, high carved ceilings and feature fireplaces, Dreckly Cottage is full of character. Follow the narrow, winding streets to discover a bounty of restaurants, cosy pubs and bakeries and with a host of family attractions to offer, Mevagissey is the perfect location for a family break to the seaside.

A day out for all the family is never too far away; 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. If you prefer you can keep your feet on solid ground whilst the children enjoy trying to land their own catch off the harbour wall.

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. 

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 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.
