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.

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!

Beaches

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. 

Walks

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.

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

April 2019

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

July 2018

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..

June 2018

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

April 2018

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.

April 2018

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.

December 2017

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.
