  • The nearest bus stop is at the car park in Mevagissey. It is about a mile walk to Skysail, the last part of the walk is up a steep hill, be prepared if you have luggage.  Buses run from St Austell every hour during the summer, there is a choice of 3 buses.  The bus station is next to the train station in the centre of town.
  • The road outside the house can be busy in summer but we have double yellow lines outside the house. We benefit from having 2 parking spaces and a carport for a further car.  Our parking space is tarmac and has a good surface.
  • The road through Mevagissey can be hectic in summer, if you are arriving mid-summer and mid-morning or afternoon you may wish to take the road in to Mevagissey via Portmellon, it is longer but may be quicker.
  • The car park is lit at night. The steps lead immediately from the parking area to the house.
