Whenever we've holidayed in Cornwall, we've stayed on the north coast. We've visited a few places on the south coast in the past but never Fowey or Mevagissey, so that's we're we headed to this time.
Fowey is pronounced Foy as in Joy. As you can see, we parked out of town and walked through the narrow streets to get down to the harbour. We usually do this as you get to see so much more of an area, and car parks are usually emptier the further away you are.
We passed lots of pretty cottages again, I loved the detail on this door.
To say that Fowey is so small, there was so much traffic trying to negotiate the small streets, which spoilt it for me. We were forever pressed up against buildings to allow cars to pass by as there were few pavements . If only people realised that parking on the outskirts allows you to see more of an area, instead, they want to park as near to the action as possible.
There were a few clouds overhead, but fortunately, it stayed dry.
After Fowey, we headed in to Mevagissey.
Again, there was quite a bit of traffic, but the streets were marginally wider than in Fowey so it didn't seem quite so much of an issue.
There were some lovely little shops which we enjoyed looking in.
Mevagissey seems more geared towards tourists than some of the villages in Cornwall, but it doesn't take it's charm away from it at all.
We enjoyed stolling around the harbour and looking at all the pretty boats.
The Lost Gardens of Heligan is on the slopes above Mevagissey and we'd have liked to have visited but unfortunately, dogs aren't allowed.
Mevagissey is a place I'd definitely like to visit again.
