Has anyone been here? Trying to find a B&B for sister and boyfriend, one has popped up here, (windsmeet) but don't know Mevagissey. Anyone have any great recommendations, cheap and cheerful with a sea view in Cornwall? Thanks.

V cute, great pasties, nice little harbour, the best beaches are just before you get there (Pentewan) and just beyond (Gorran Haven - nice pub too - and Caerhays). Gets very busy and as theres just one road in and one out (and the bits in the middle are very narrow with no pavements), very congested. Good shops selling local artists'/potters'/sculptors' wares.

hi mum2mikey, just saw you on the eden thread! Where would you suggest she take him then, we have all been to Cornwall several times, north and south, but this is her boyfriends first time, and she want to really show him Cornwall at it's best, ie he's keen on somewhere with a sea view. Sweet, quaint, cobbly, harboury, boats, pubs etc. Def not Newquay (sorry!) As she is going in mid-Sept she will be out of main 'crush' season.

Meva sounds like the sort of thing they are after. Or just up the coast is Fowey - similar to meva. Harbour, boats, pubs, hotels, very quaint.

Sorry don't know of any B&B's but there must be some you could find doing internet search.

If you want a cobbly, quaint fishing village then go to Polperro . My favourite place of all in Cornwall. I can recommend staying in the Mill House and a drink in the Blue Peter is a must.

Just had another thought - Charlestown.

Lovely little village with working port - used a lot for films & television. The Pier House Hotel is right on quay side look here

I think it was meva. my mil stayed at last year - watch out for parking charges - I think it cost them about £20 for the weekend!
I loved Driftwood Spars in St Agnes - not much to do there - but right on the beach and fairly reasonable rates too.

I had wonderful lobster in Charlestown when we went in June!
Mevagissey is very quaint but yes, very busy - Port issac is nice as is Polperro
