Book

This Grade II listed cottage has been carefully restored, retaining many of the original features, including exposed beams, and wall pannelling and is thoughtfully furnished, resulting in a quaint holiday home, ideal for a couple of small family, you can even bring along your four legged friend. Positioned just a stone's throw from the harbour, you can wake up and take your coffee to watch the sunrise before enjoying a leisurely breakfast, ready for the day ahead. The interior is as cosy as they come, offering guests a home from home experience with its cosy cottage kitchen/diner, perfect for family meals together or somewhere to spend quality time, before relaxing in the sitting room, then heading upstairs to the comfy beds for a peaceful nights slumber.

Mevagissey is a great location for all the family. Enjoy the fireworks during "Feast Week" in June, or take a local fishing trip around the bay, where you may be lucky enough to spot a dolphin or two. Or you can simply enjoy the many coastal walks, heading out towards Hemick beach while watching the sunset.

This was our second visit to Fisherman's Cottage and as before, we had a great time. The cottage is very comfortable and well equipped with everything you could need. It's position near the harbour is perfect for exploring the coastal paths and the boat trips available are well worth a look. Willow car park is safe, secure and easily accessible from the cottage.

There's plenty of choice for food in the village for evening meals, the local shops have great supplies for self-catering and the Teacup Tearoom mustn't be missed for the best cakes and cream teas. Loads of craft shops and the locals are so friendly and welcoming.

Fisherman's Cottage is a lovely base for a holiday and I would highly recommend it.

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.
