Harbour Rest

£541 - £1590 per week

Step into Harbour Rest, where you will appreciate the elegantly decorated interior that mixes homely touches with coastal luxury. Cleverly designed to ensure that guests can fully enjoy the harbour views from each essential room, the gorgeous living room on the first floor offers a picture perfect outlook where you could spend hours watching the ebb and flow of the tide as the boats bob up and down, or cosy up in front of the woodburner during those cooler months.

The master bedroom is on the ground floor, again, with wonderful views of the harbour, a comfy bed and when the morning light pours in, you will be sure to wake up refreshed. Upstairs there is access to the garden that has been thoughtfully designed, allowing you to soak up that summer sunshine. Harbour Rest is located upon the cliff path which can lead you onto some fabulous walks, offering spectacular views of the Cornish coastline, or simply wander down to the harbour and visit the shops, restaurants and pubs dotted around the fishing village. Fancy a day out to suit the whole party? Then visit Pentewan Beach where you can get stuck in, enjoying water sports, or take a trip up to Heligan Gardens just a few minutes' drive away. Whether you want to explore or simply relax, Harbours Rest really is the best of both worlds.

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.

Fabulous property in an ideal location -overlooking the harbour and steps away from this pretty village and all its amenities. Would highly recommend

Beautiful cottage, great views of the Harbour, Carpets clean, bathrooms ,Laura Ashley curtains , love the place, central but quiet, cute, quaint small patio at rear for catching the sun, beds comfy and clean.

Harbour rest is a beautiful cottage right on the harbour. It was very cosy for our family of four. Would highly recommend.

Had a lovely time on holiday. The cottage location was excellent with fantastic views of the harbour. The outside space however could use a little TLC. We found Mevagissey busy but that was probably due to current circumstances, and so difficult to find a pub or restaurant with room without booking ahead.

A lovely clean and comfy cottage in a perfect location with everything we needed for a great holiday.Have booked again for later in the year

Harbour Rest is a comfortable property with lovely harbour views and just a short walk into the village with its shops and pubs/restaurants. A large lounge with real wood-burner is perfect for relaxing and the private outside space at the rear of the property great for soaking up the sun or having coffee. Property is found up a short, but steep slope (an easier gradient is found by walking past the Fountain Inn behind "She Sells".) also, the property is on several levels so not good for people with mobility difficulties. We found it clean, quiet and comfortable, just what we needed after such a long time away from Mevagissey due to Covid restrictions.

A lovely and comfortable cottage with amazing views and a great location for everything Mevagissey has to offer.

Bedding &towels lovley and soft and clean . View is amazing . Make sure you take dishwasher tabs and condiments as nothing basic there .

Had a really wonderful time at Harbour Rest in Mevagissey the accommodation was very good and Mevagissey itself is even better an absolutely beautiful place to visit

This is a beautiful cottage in a stunning, and convenient location, with excellent views and really spotlessly clean. If you want to eat out you will need to book well in advance ( I did 3 weeks ahead and still couldn't get in my favourite place). If you are self catering you will need to bring your own supplies or stop in St Austell to shop as there is only a tiny store in the village. Do take a boat trip....we were lucky enough to see dolphins really close up.

Lovely little house, beautiful view and great location for popping down to the shops and cafes. Nicely decorated - neutral, coastal colours and a few original paintings, plus v. clean and comfortable. Was good for warm, sunny weather as well as cosy in wind and rain, and we had both during our holiday!

Strongly advise people to book local restaurants ahead of coming this year - visitor numbers are huge and capacity is reduced. Also, stop at a supermarket on the way and grab some nice food and drink to have in, there is no supermarket in Mevagissey. Lots of nice seafood/ fish n chips/ Cornish pasty options locally if that fails! The beaches and scenery were a tonic, the locals were friendly despite the slightly challenging circumstances brought on by the pandemic, and we had a lovely holiday.

Harbour Rest is located in the centre of Mevagissey Harbour. You won't find a more central location with amazing views. Just remember to bring your walking legs with you, as there is no parking near the property and you will need to use the Willows Car park on the edge of the town (5 minutes walk). The property is situation on the South West Coastal Path. There are some great walks exploring the Coastal path to the North and South of Mevagissey. There are a number of excellent Restaurants, Pubs and cafes all with in minutes walks for the property, many you can see from the front door of Harbour Rest!

Very nice property in a great location overlooking the harbour. Well presented and nicely decorated. Ideally placed for pubs,shops and restaurants all within a very short distance from the property. Lovely part of the country,well worth a visit and harbour rest was the ideal house to stay in.

Beautiful and extremely comfortable cottage with modern facilities. Lovely view of the harbour and very close to all of its amenities. Would not hesitate to book Harbour Rest again.

This beautiful property is a home from home. All a guests wishes have been catered for and the positioning of the property is stunning, overlooking the harbour. There is an ease to walking down the steps into Mevagissey, its attractions, shops and services. A week or more will pass quickly and very pleasantly. A property worth the visit.
