There is probably nowhere in England a finer specimen of the typical fishing village than Mevagissey. The little harbour with its pier and breakwater; the immense cliffs on either side; the crowded fishing boats; the crowd of gulls that half obscure the sky; the houses stuck in all sorts of ways on the cliffs, or crammed together in narrow streets on the little level behind the harbour, all combine to form a picture that lingers long in the memory.
In the incredibly narrow and attractive streets of this old fishing village the fish cellars of the past have been converted into the shops and restaurants of today and retain a most relaxing old world charm. There is excellent fishing from the extended lighthouse quay. Along the shore to east and west are pretty inlets and headlands with soft green pastures and cornfields sloping to the edge of the cliffs, and beaches and coves nestling in unexpected corners.
I thoroughly enjoyed my peaceful stay at Treloen Apartments. The view is unbeatable, and the location perfect for exploring Cornwall.
Such a fantastic place to stay, a sea view from every room, good location with many lovely walks.
Beautiful location; Beautiful views, peace and quiet. What more could you ask for?
