Harbour Rest Mevagissey

£509 - £1495 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.

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

September 2020

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.

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!


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. 

Gorran Haven beach can be reached via the coastal path, or is just a short drive away. Just two miles from Mevagissey, the quaint village of Gorran Haven has some lovely pubs and cafés, and a gorgeous sandy beach which is a great spot for swimming and kayaking. 


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 with a beautiful beach, 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.

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.

Aug 2020

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!

Aug 2020

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.

Jul 2020

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.

Sep 2019

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.
