Stopped here last night, don't think a fiver is too bad for a well built town centre car park.
Thank you - handy to know when we tour Cornwall in June
Nice one - I love Mevagissy
Local traffic warden is called Denzel Penberthy
Did you have a pasty? IMO the best in Cornwall.
We parked in Mevagissey today parked without problem in nearly empty car park. Had a nice pint in the ship inn then a pastie on the key side. They were telling me that the Ship Inn gets flooded regularly, six times last year by all accounts. Last time it was 2ft deep in the bar. Lovely place to spend a day but watch the seagulls they are man eaters.
The Willow Car Park. Is it easy to find ? Presumably outside of the village ?
Only one way in and out, you can't miss it....
Ohh,... And don't go into the town if you have a large Mh you'll get stuck...... In fact I wouldn't go in with a car in season..!
If you get to a no entry, must turn left sign you have gone too far. Turn round immediately as it gets very tight very quickly, then tighter still!
if your in a large vehicle and want to drive through meva . as you leave pentewan at the top of the hill turn left . its possible to get through with full size trucks then . you can get out through and on to portmellon.and on to gorran haven. but bewarned it does get tight between penare and boswinger on the coast road.
hemmick beach is a great place but not at all good for large vehicles .
Correct. Even had to do a "three" point turn in our Volvo estate to get round a corner!
Much prefer The Fountain across the road. Cousin and I drank it dry of Tribute one night!
We love Hemmick beach but deffo not in the moho, our son who lives in Gorran havenm takes us there in his car, very narrow lane various gates to open & not too many passing places. we also love gorran haven & mevagissey
was better before the bog rocks went on the carpark by the beach. you could get 12 vw,s or toyota type vans there . brill for snorkelling . spent many weekends there over the last 50 yrs .
Also like Vault beach
bet you would like trenarren as well you do have to walk abit past the millhouse etc but another good snorkelling beach its off the pentewan -porthpean road . lovely walk through the woods .
therte is a farm site about a mile from goran haven stayed there whilst visiting daughter in law,s dad [he owns the canoe ,s on the beach] nice cafe on beach,lovely walk,s
I tried a couple of years ago when coming in from Goran and we're just 6 metres long!
One thing for Cornwall it does like to charge for car parking. Mevagisy was £5 a day , not like there was a lot there.
