Holiday Cottages by the Beach, Sea or Coast

Local Area Information

Beachcombers' Lookout Holiday Apartment is situated in Mevagissey, which is the largest fishing village in the bay. Its working harbour has an unbroken tradition of boat building since 1745. Fishermen still repair nets on the quayside, using ancient skills and modern materials. The fishermen are happy to take visitors out on angling or pleasure trips and small motor boats can be hired for self-drive. 

In the narrow streets of Mevagissey leading off the harbour, craft workshops sit side-by-side with shops, art galleries, cafes, restaurants and pubs which were once the haunts of Cornish smugglers!

Mevagissey is the home of the World of Model Railways Exhibition, an impressive collection of 2000 models and a layout alive with 50 working trains, while across on the quayside, in the old lifeboat house, there's the aquarium.

Also not to be missed is the treasured Mevagissey Folk Museum situated on the East Quay. Displays show how Mevagissey once looked when the pilchard Industry was booming.
