    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.

    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! :eek::LOL::LOL:

    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 .

    One thing for Cornwall it does like to charge for car parking. Mevagisy was £5 a day , not like there was a lot there.
