'Skippers Retreat' is a wonderful example of Mevagissey's traditional fisherman's cottages, over 200 years old and right in the heart of this popular fishing village, just 80 paces from the harbour! Situated on a footpath with no passing traffic but right by the shops and pubs that brim with life on a warm sunny day. You'll be spoilt for choice with the two historic pubs, bakeries, fish & chip shops, cafes and ice cream parlours all within a minutes easy walk.
Mevagissey's harbour is a working fishing port where you can watch the fishing boats come and go. Aside from the shops and eateries, there's a small aquarium and also a museum that depicts life in the village over the years. The South West Coast Path passes through as well and can be easily accessed from the cottage. Neighbouring Portmellon is also very pretty and it's pub sits right next to the beach and nearby Pentewan has a larger sandy beach and lots of amenities for visitors to the area.
