Step into a picture–postcard village huddled around a 14th century harbour, where you can watch fishermen unload the daily catch ready for you to dine on hours later. A historic hamlet that thrived on the pilchard industry in the 1800s, ’Meva’ is still the sort of place where you might end up singing sea shanties in an alehouse. However, there’s nothing old–fashioned about the bounty behind its traditional Cornish charm: there’s contemporary restaurants, buzzing bars and trendy boutiques. Not to mention that you’re just a pebble’s throw from attractions such as the Eden Project and The Lost Gardens of Heligan. The Roseland Peninsula is within easy reach where the beautiful coastal villages of St Mawes and Portscatho offer cafes and restaurants. Goran Haven is a charming sandy sheltered cove perfect for watersports and beach life.
