We love it when our customers come back to our holiday house in Mevagissey. Its our third year and we cant help it but they just keep returning, thank you, we must be doing something right. Each year we endeavour to continue to upgrade the house so that our clients can enjoy the house at its best at all times. The one thing we cant update is the weather and the sea views, the view is always breathtaking and the climate pretty much doesn’t let us down in South Cornwall, it boasts the warmest UK weather and the South Cornish Coast is always that little bit warmer than the Rugged North Coast. We look forward to seeing you at Skysail!
Mevagissey is centred around the busy active fishing harbour which still operates commercially and has an inner and an outer deep water harbour that provides shelter for either leisure craft or yachts. Mevagissey is approximately six miles from the market town of St Austell, which has a wider range of retail amenities and facilities as well as good leisure facilities. Three popular golf courses are situated near to the town and a main railway link from Penzance to Paddington runs from St Austell. The Cathedral city of Truro is approximately 15 miles away.
Bustling restaurants, cafes & many shops line the harbour-side and the narrow streets of Mevagissey.
There are sailing clubs at Porthpean, Pentewan and Fowey – the latter being a particularly interesting and historic town with a deep and natural harbour suitable for larger sailing craft. Nearby Portmellon also has a small boatyard. Road link via the A30 is mainly dual carriageway to the junction with the M5 at Exeter.
Fishing Trips are available from the harbour side.
The Ferry from Mevagissey Harbour to Fowey runs daily see the timetable here
Walking from Skysail to Gorran Haven (seaside village with fabulous sandy beach, ideal for small children) around the Cliffs is a truly exhilerating experience, fantastic Cliffs, Chapel Point Beach, amazing changing views all the way. It takes around 1 hour 20 minutes, not to be missed. And when you get there relax on the sandy beach, go to the beach cafe or the bakery or pub for lunch. Perfect! A seal and her pup were seen at Chapel Point right by the beach in February, just basking in the sun. If you prefer a shorter walk just head for Chapel Point, its about 30 minutes walk.
