Mevagissey: a Cornish fishing village made famous by Rosamunde Pilcher
Mevagissey is a typically traditional Cornish fishing village, where you can wander the narrow alleyways, browse gift shops and art galleries. Once the home of the Cornish sardine fishery it still boasts a working fleet that bring in a selection of the fish that Cornwall is famous for.
Each year at the end of June, Mevagissey celebrates Feast Week, a week of family fun, music, and floral dances through the streets; ending in a carnival and fireworks display.
Mevagissey is within the Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty which along with National Parks, are considered to be the most special landscapes in the country and belong to an international family of protected areas.
UrlaubCornwall can offer this lovely detached holiday house with all you could wish for in a holiday home-from-home. Tucked away behind high wooden gates and hedges and situated near the South West Coast Path, the gently sloping garden has a sun-trap patio with garden furniture. Inside, the main sitting-room has a wall of windows overlooking the garden to the harbour and beach below, a fabulous view shared by the master bedroom and sitting/dining-room. Here, patio doors open onto a balcony where you can breakfast at leisure before strolling to the sandy beach for a day of paddling and sandcastle building.
The Eden Project, Heligan Gardens and Mevagissey are nearby, while the Roseland peninsula beckons and the sailing town of St Mawes offers award-winning restaurants, pubs, galleries, shops and ferry trips.
