Pencarrow is an impressive property perched right above Mevagissey harbour and offers stunning sea views with the Fowey Estuary in the distance. From the moment you arrive at this beautiful two bedroom apartment, you'll be mesmerised by the amazing views of the surrounding area. Pencarrow offers open plan living, plenty of communal outdoor areas from which to enjoy those views, a private parking space and even a wine cooler; you will have everything you need for a truly memorable Cornish holiday.

Mevagissey is set in the heart of Daphne du Maurier country with Charlestown; the famous Poldark filming location, just around the corner. Situated on the beautiful South Coast and close to both the Eden Project and Lost Gardens of Heligan, it's an ideal base to explore this beautiful part of Cornwall. Mevagissey is a small, unspoilt fishing village, retaining its traditional character and has a colourful history of boat building and smuggling. A great selection of top quality pubs, restaurants, shops and of course fresh fish which you can buy straight from the harbour, make it perfect for a self catering holiday. For the more energetic you are right on the South West Coast Path for some fantastic walks, and Pentewan Sands is close by, with kayak hire and diving excursions. The sandy cove of Port Mellon is only 700m away. Please note that this property is not decorated over the festive period.

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.

What our guests say...

We know how important honest reviews are when it comes to booking your holiday. To help you choose the right property for you, we publish all reviews left by guests who have stayed here in the past, with the few exceptions stated in our Review Guidelines. Please bear in mind that some facilities referred to by past guests in reviews can be removed or changed at any time.

This flat was outstanding, brilliantly located and very well kitted out. Showers, linen, towels, and general fittings and lighting excellent. However the beds and their comfort fell very short of this high standard. The large king size bed had a faulty uncomfortable mattress on one side, and the other bedroom had a bad damp problem which smelt, and which stained the bedding and made the bed damp where it was pushed against the wall. We also found the two lounge sofa's quite uncomfortable if relaxing on them in the evening after a long day of exploring. Otherwise, this is a great flat, but there are a couple of things to sort to bring it up to the standard it appears to give from the website.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

It really is lovely isn't it? And those views….. We were sorry to hear about the issue with one of the mattresses and damp within the property. The owners have confirmed with us that they have now checked this and have ordered a replacement mattress. They have a company attending to investigate what has caused that damp and will of course get that addressed following the advice from them. Thank you also for your feedback on the sofas; these can be quite subjective things and as we haven't had this mentioned before, we will monitor feedback for now and make the owner aware of your feedback. When you stay in a property for a few days or more, you get to experience things in a different way than we do, so we really do appreciate the feedback; it is very helpful. Thank you again and we hope to see you back soon. Tanya, Customer Services UPDATE: ALL MATTRESSES HAVE NOW BEEN REPLACED (APRIL 2021)

Perfect place to stay, everything you need nothing has been forgotten about. The view is amazing, can’t wait to return.

Loved this property. Amazing views, clean, comfortable , well equipped. Excellent service from Aspects

This is a modern well decorated and furnished ground floor flat, probably the best equipped flat we have ever stayed in, The views over the harbour and coast are superb and Mevagissy is a lovely place which is still an active fishing port. We had a great week staying there only marred by loud footfall noise coming from an upstairs flat.

A lovely apartment in a fabulous location. Great views and well equipped.

Very pleasant place to stay. Nice to wake up to the sea every morning even from your bedroom window. Some great walks in the surrounding area. Well equipped little apartment.

Pencarrow is amazing loved every minute. Mevagissey is also an amazing place and aspects holidays were top notch. Thanks guys

Wonderful property with a stunning view; lovely walks from the door and so close to Mevagissey. Would recommend ??

Just come back from a lovely week at Pencarrow. Fantastic views & lovely accommodation. Didn't want to leave!

Pencarrow was a perfect base for exploring Mevagissey and surrounding areas.Spotlessly clean and well equipped with an amazing view.We are happy to recommend to others.

Pencarrow was a wonderful place to stay. Comfortable, quiet with the best views over Mevagissey harbour. Your worries would drift away as you watched the fishing boats come and go.

Had a fantastic time apartment was very clean when we arrived there was tea coffee milk Biscuits the sea view is brilliant and the beds are so so comfortable the week we had Was a 10/10 thank you aspects

I lovely place, outstanding view. A clean and well appointed property, a great base for a family holiday. We had a lovely time . Thank you

We would recommend this property for fit people only, the hill climb can be daunting !

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are glad to hear that you liked Pencarrow. Being in such a fantastic location, perched above the harbour to enjoy those spectacular views, as you rightly say, involves a bit of a climb if you are on foot. There are also the 23 external steps up to the property which we detail; so for those with limited mobility, or potentially if you are here with small children, please do contact us before booking, so that we can advise. We hope that you agree that the climb is worth it once you enter this lovely property and see those views. Tanya, Customer Services

Great location with good view of harbour, away from the crowds. Can be a tricky drive up narrow streets to the appartment. Clean and well equipped. Aspects were very efficient..

The views from Pencarrow are second to none. The moment we arrived we were blown away by the scenery. The property itself was clean, well equipped and very comfortable; almost loathing to leave the bed in the mornings... ...almost. There are some beautiful walks along the coastal path and, if you're feeling particularly fit, some challenging runs to be had! The locals are very friendly and good for a laugh especially those down at The Ship Inn at the bottom of the hill, where the food is pretty good as well. A huge thank you to everyone that dealt with my booking a Aspects, you made it all extremely easy even though I had some unusual requests. We'll definitely be heading back to Mevagissey in the future.

Loved our stay at Pencarrow, the view is fantastic, the price was good, would definitely return.

I would highly recommend this apartment fully equipped spotlessly clean and comfortable superb view from the lounge and bedroom. You do need to be fairly fit though to walk up the hill from the harbour to the apartment. Would definitely return.

Pencarrow is a perfect location for comfort style and location. My family and I had a fantastic break at Mevagissy where Pencarrow was our base for some lovely family activities from building a jigsaw to enjoying a breakfast feast! I found it ideally situated with a beautiful view and a short walk to the harbour.

Such a restful place and a great view.. Could sit and watch the sea for ages...

Lovely views great village nice people great food overall wonderful- would love to go back like next week.

The cottage has the most amazing view.

Just spent a lovely two weeks at Pencarrow. Absolutely superb views, with a really luxurious feel to it.

Superb location , amazing views , appartment fully equipped to a high standard , spottlessy clean .

Pencarrow is a fantastic apartment with wonderful views of the ocean and Mevagissey. The apartment has every gadget in the kitchen you could wish for, and beautifully decorated throughout, Me,my family and pooch had a wonderful week here and can't wait to return.

A delightful place to stay offering all that is needed for a relaxing holiday. Excellent facilities, high class comfort and wonderful views make Pencarrow a 5? apartment to chose for your holiday.

The cottage is very close to perfect. Nice and tasteful furnishings and equipment. A splendid view from the living room and just a short walk through the cliff park down to the harbour. We look forward to coming back soon.

The property has a lovely view overlooking the harbour of Mevagissey and easy access for walks around the area. Property is small but well presented. Don't bring too much with you! Recommend local places to eat in the area but book in advance.
