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.

This 18th-century, Grade II listed town house has been lovingly updated to provide beautiful and comfortable holiday accommodation in the heart of the traditional fishing village of Mevagissey on Cornwall’s sub-tropical south coast. Set close to the working harbour that is home to the colourful Mevagissey fishing fleet, local shops, an abundance of restaurants, cafes and pubs all serving local food and local ales, Tregoney House provides the perfect base to enjoy the village and surrounding countryside and coastline.

Perched above the harbour, the sights and sounds of gently bobbing boats, the cry of the gulls and the waves lapping the edge of the harbour can be heard from the balcony that overlooks the open sea beyond. The narrow, tiny lanes are lined with pretty cafes, gift and craft shops and local pubs that serve award winning ales and local food. The sandy beaches and isolated coves dominate the coastline and provide a beautiful natural attraction.

This spacious, detached holiday home, set within ¾ of an acre, sits in one of the most enviable locations on the beautiful South Cornwall Coast.
