Find cottages in MevagisseyVisit Mevagissey

Mevagissey is a picturesque, Cornish fishing village where you can explore the narrow streets and discover quirky shops and art galleries.

Mevagissey is situated on the south Cornish coast a short distance from St Austell, and the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan is nearby. This unspoilt fishing village has a colourful history of smuggling and boat building and is set amongst the steep hill sides that surround the twin harbours where fishing boats come and go with their catch; the town has many good restaurants, pubs and cafes where you can try the local produce.

Of particular note is the converted lifeboat house on the harbour which has had many uses since the 1930s, including a cafe, shop and gun emplacement manned by the Home Guard during WWII. In the mid-1950s it was turned into an aquarium which provided 50 years of enjoyment before being refurbished and reopened in 2006. To learn more of the town's history, visit the local museum; the exhibits are housed in a building that was constructed in 1745.

There are many beautiful beaches and attractions nearby, including the Mevagissey Model railway museum where more than 30 trains travel through detailed, but imaginary scenes. Spot the harbour with a film set, wedding, maze and snow covered Alpine landscape!

To make yourself at home, search Mevagissey cottages.
