  • Day 3: Day at leisure or Mevagissey

    Relax with a day at leisure in pretty St. Mawes. Once a small fishing village and now one of Cornwall's most exclusive resorts, you could visit the castle, enjoy a coastal walk or even take the boat over to popular Falmouth.

    Or, perhaps you'd prefer to join our optional excursion to Mevagissey where the narrow, winding streets lead down to the centre of the village and picture-postcard harbour. Named after two Irish saints, the village dates back to 1313, and during the 1800s the town thrived due to the abundant sources of fish. You'll find plenty of seafood restaurants here!
