Stunning views over the harbour from this property. We had no problem with noise, as reported in previous reviews, from the fish quay, but it might be the time of year (March). Parking good but bring a small car (not suitable for SUVs). Ideally positioned for the South West Coast Path with excellent support from local bus service (23 and 24). We were very lucky and beautiful weather. We can recommend the Fountain Inn. Heligan Gardens are a mere two miles away and walkable (uphill to get there). The walk around Dodman Point is beautiful.

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.

Lovely apartment in a great location. Be careful if you have a large car as you need to drive through narrow streets and the parking space is tight. Would definitely recommend for two people

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Unfortunately, many of the traditional fishing villages here in Cornwall were not designed for today's traffic and parking needs, so the streets are quite narrow, and some may not feel confident driving larger vehicles around them. Parking spaces are classed as being suited for average sized cars (within our literature, we give the guide of this as like a VW golf) unless we state otherwise. But the allocated space will now be different to the one that was provided during your stay, so we have changed the details to state that it is more suited to a small car. With the restricted amount of parking at properties right in the heart of the village, we hope that having a guaranteed space at your property was something that you found to be convenient, and we do hope that this was what you had been expecting from the information online.

Fabulous apartment with terrific views of the busy harbour. Location is excellent for all Mevagissey has to offer. The parking space is a bonus. We thoroughly enjoyed staying here. Something to see outside all the time - to sketch and photograph too. Great to harbour watch! If you don’t mind a bit of noise in the night from the fishermen bringing in their catch and the crying seagulls you will love it, as we did. New earplugs were helpfully left in the bedside drawers just in case. We didn’t use them at all! Very clean and modern accomodation. A comfy sofa too with a warm and welcoming atmosphere in the apartment. The TV is a bit of a challenge accessing standard channels as all are on a digital feed rather than accessible via a standard menu guide. We mastered it in the end! Apartment is better suited to 2 adults but 3 can be accommodated if you are happy to be in relatively close quarters using the living areas and facilities. We would recommend this apartment wholeheartedly. Loved it and Mevagissey. We will return no doubt very soon.

My wife and I have just spent two wonderful weeks at Gwel an Mor, which can only be described as having the best location and view of Mevagissey harbour from it's windows anywhere. We would thoroughly recommend it either as a base to explore the surrounding Cornish area or to simply stay around the harbour, which has many excellent shops, restaurants, bars and food outlets. Above all, simply walking or sitting around the harbour, taking in the views and watching the fishing boats arrive and all of the activity that goes on is enough to keep you occupied. Having it's own parking space is an absolute bonus, set through the concealed courtyard off the main harbour front. A short flight of steps from the courtyard gives access to the front doors leading directly in to the main open living/dining/kitchen area, including two large windows that you won't be able to stop looking through to the view outside, stunning. The kitchen has everything needed, large fridge/freezer, oven, grill, hob, dishwasher, plenty of cupboard space and some essentials to start you off which is a nice touch. There is a small dining table for four and a large 'L' shaped settee. Two good sized bedrooms, first with a double bed and a second with single bed. Both bedrooms have a window with the same stunning views. The bathroom has a very powerful shower, useful large heated towel rail and plenty of storage. Towels are supplied per guest, which are replaced along with bed linen depending on length of stay. Overall the apartment was clean and tidy, plenty of space for the two of us. I will point out a couple of things, not complaints but observations that future visitors may want to know before arriving. Mevagissey is a working fishing harbour day and night, meaning there is some noise during the night from the boats and fishermen, nothing drastic but you might get woken by moving vehicles, flashing lights and talking during the early hours, especially if you have the windows open. A bit obvious but there are an abundance of seagulls around the harbour, who have no concept of the time of day and love chasing after the incoming trawlers arriving back during the night. You can ask them as much as you like but they wont keep quiet!! Using the oven/grill might raise an issue as the smoke/fire alarm is located directly above, meaning it sets off when the doors are open, unless you are very quick and/or have a fit and healthy towel waver at hand. The TV is great, but be aware that it has no aerial and uses internet/streaming services to provide it's channels, not a 'Freeview' type. Most 'everyday' channels are available, it just means that you have to search around for 'live' channels or catch up. None of these observations are meant to put anyone off staying at Gwel an Mor, just a heads up really.

We have just finished a fantastic family holiday in Cornwall; our first ‘staycation’ for many years. Gwel An Mor is a real gem right on Mevagissey Harbour front. We could not fault it. It was very clean and had everything that you could wish for when staying away from home. A great place in the evening to just sit in the window and watch the world go by. The private Parking space was also much appreciated right outside the front door in a private courtyard, as was the welcome pack of Cornish produce. No hesitation in using Aspects again should the opportunity arise.
