About the property


These spacious apartments have been created within a converted fishing loft, moments to the harbour in the scenic fishing village of Mevagissey. The village is centrally located on the Cornish south coast and close to both Eden and Heligan Gardens. The apartment will cater to your every need - whether a couple or a family. Centrally located, the scenic harbour is virtually on your doorstep - with many restaurants and shops to choose from all within walking distance. Just step out of the front door (or open your balcony) to experience the atmosphere of this unique location. 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 largest working fishing port in St. Austell Bay. Cob cottages spill down to the harbour walls from the valley making for a picturesque destination at any time of year. Don't forget Feast Week in June.

Just beautiful!

We have had the most enjoyable week. The apartment was ideally located, spotlessly clean and the extra special touch of the basket of groceries was so thoughtful and meant that we didn't have to worry about getting out the store as soon as we arrived. We would definitely come back - thank you for making our stay so memorable xx

Superb top floor apartment, tastefully furnished and spotlessly clean

  • 4 of 5

Arrived at the apartment at the appointed time. The apartment is spacious and well appointed with comfortable sofas to relax in. The bedrooms are airy and the double bed is so, so comfortable!! As always, we took lots of kitchen-type gadgets but everything was provided - and more! There was a huge welcome basket with everything we could wish for to get us through at least a couple of days without having to shop. A bottle of fizz in the fridge was much appreciated too. The only detraction was the sound of glass bottles sliding into the bins at around 6:30 every morning from The Harbour Tavern next door (but hey, people have to work, don't they??). All in all, we were very happy with our stay there and would have no hesitation in recommending Beachcombers Lookout.

It's the Thought that Counts.....

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautifully positioned apartment just yards from Mevagissey harbour.Once in, it's hard not to be immersed in the life of this busy fishing village.There's plenty of good eating and drinking to be had nearby of all different types from the local chip shop to the more up-market fish restaurant.

What really makes this apartment though are the extra touches put in to make sure everything is perfect for the stay.The instructions and directions given were comprehensive so all your usual initial concerns about arriving at a new place are answered.The wi-fi is great and easy to access. There's a TV in each room and all necessary domestic appliances in the kitchen. Even a separate freezer with ice cubes ready to go ! What really capped it off though was the hamper of food waiting for us and some basic toiletries. Just what we needed and the perfect touches that can make staying in a place just that little bit special.This apartment is certainly one up from the norm.

Further Details:

Mevagissey 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. In fact Mevagissey was the first to have electric street lighting, powered from Pilchard Oil, and was the starting place of Pears Soap.

Climbing up through the backdrop of Mevagissey's terraced houses and away from the activity of the quayside the pastoral peace of Cornwall takes over. Here the visitor can enjoy the full flavour of rich farmland, a river valley and coastal walks.

At the end of June, Mevagissey celebrates Feast Week, which is based on religion and St Peter's Day - St Peter being the patron saint of fishermen. The week's events include music and the Flora Dance, with many other activities for young and old, culminating in a Grand Fete and Carnival procession on the Saturday.

During the pre-Christmas period Mevagissey has a wonderful display of Christmas Lights and the New Year is celebrated in the Cornish tradition in which almost everybody wears fancy dress.

Mevagissey is an excellent place to spend your holiday - centrally located in Cornwall, it makes life easy to tour the county and its attractions.
