Just down the road, in the next bay along, is Fowey, an upmarket village with pastel painted houses, plenty of homeware and gift shops and a plethora of cafe’s serving afternoon tea. Readymoney Cove at one end of Fowey is a beautifully scenic cove made of golden sand and rocks. It may be small but on a sunny day it is a lovely place to spend an afternoon, or for those who would rather not get sand in their toes, there are benches on the grass above the cove, which makes a perfect place to sit and watch the view or read a book.

Mevagissey is famous for it’s winding streets and delightful shops and art galleries. If you are considering UK cottages to stay in, picking one in Mevagissey could be a good move.
