The pretty village of Mevagissey is located at the beginning (or end) of the Cornish Riviera, a picturesque stretch of coast that leads to the hinterland of the Tamar. Browse our range of Mevagissey holiday cottages and experience this wonderful village for yourself.

The historic village has been around since at least 1313 and was named after two Irish saints; St Meva and St Issey. During the 1800's Mevagissey was the centre of Cornwall’s pilchard fishing industry, the trade has declined since yet the harbour is still a working one.

The village is nestled in a small valley, steep sides and narrow lanes leading to the old village centre. Venturing from your Mevagissey cottage, you will find a selection of places to eat and shop. Many of which encircle the harbour or are tucked away down traditional narrow streets.

There are many pleasant walks on the South West Coast Path around this area, with far reaching views across St Austell Bay. The Lost Gardens of Heligan near Pentewan, with its sub-tropical plants, Jungle and Crystal Grotto, are nearby, as well as the impressive Eden Project.
