Book

Steep Cottage is the perfect place for a idyllic holiday within a charming fisherman's cottage, with captivating harbour views. Decorated tastefully, with exposed stonework and rustic wooden features,the cottage offers all the modern amenities of home, yet retaining the character. Guests will love cooking up a feast in the kitchen with the range oven and breakfast bar to prepare and enjoy meals. The cosy sitting room offers harbour views with a wood burner, great for those days when you want to relax with a good book and watch the world pass you by. Upstairs, you will find two stylish bedrooms, both with those captivating views, where comfy beds await to ensure a restful night. Your location means you are quite literally on the harbour wall, and within just a few steps, you're by the water. However, if you would like to relax quietly, you can make the most of Steep Cottages' own outdoor space. If you fancy bringing your dog along to enjoy Mevagissey, they're also provided with their own bed, quite rightfully too!

The position of this cottage means you are right on the coastal path, so get your walking boots on and enjoy the beautiful scenery. When you have worked up an appetite, be sure to visit one of the many fresh eateries dotted around the village. For a day of water activities, you can take a trip on a boat from the harbour, catch your own fish to eat, or perhaps, paddle board for the day from Portmellon.

Additional information

due to the location, you are unable to park near the property, so it can only be accessed on foot, therefore it may not be suitable for those with limited mobility. Willow Carpark is a 7 min walk to your property. Care should be taken when using the 24 steps to and from the sun terrace, and we advised small children to be supervised at all times on the terrace. Cottage staircases within and terraced gardens, so may not be suitable for those with limited mobility or toddlers. WiFi, one well behaved dog welcome, short breaks available.

 
 

Steep cottage is such a gem. Waking up to sea views and watching the working harbour each morning was magical. (Even though it was a working fishing harbour, it was very quiet). Being right on the sea front means no road noise. Visiting the local crepe cafe is a must along with the small shops. Staying in December means it’s quieter and you get to see the beautiful village lit up with Christmas lights which really adds to the magic of this location. The cottage had all the things you needed from fire wood for the fire to coffee pods (and even mince pies). The rooms are surprisingly spacious and are very calming with little homely touches. We enjoyed walking from the cottage along the coast and past chapel point to see seals. Lots of nature on your doorstep here also with a seal in the harbour each day and beautiful wading birds. We loved our short time here and really felt like we were in a magical little bubble.

December 2023

Steep cottage is beautiful. Even better than expected. The views from the bedrooms were fantastic and couldn't wait to wake up and harbour watch whilst drinking our coffee in bed. Binoculars were a great touch too. The owners have decorated/renovated to a very high standard and felt honoured to be staying there. Can't wait to book again for next year.

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.
