'At the beach, life is different... time doesn't move hour-by-hour, but, mood to moment.
We live by the currents, plan by the tides and follow the sun'
Set in the picturesque fishing village of Mevagissey, the Old Parsonage is a family run guest house.
The house is located only moments from the heart of the village, with its harbour, shops, restaurants and pubs and is well placed to explore Cornwalls dramatic coastline, famous beaches and the Cornish Villages.
Also the Lost Gardens of Heligan, Eden Project and historic houses and gardens, or, take a glorious walk,
enjoy the popular cycle-route, or, hire a boat.
Whatever time of year you choose to visit, whether during the busy summer season, or,
during the crisp winter months, The Old Parsonage remains the same, with its home from home feel,
excellent service and delicious homemade meals.
For those who would like to book out the whole house, we're delighted to accommodate groups looking for a charming house, comfortable rooms and delicious food.

Breakfasts At The Old Parsonage
"When you wake up in the morning, Pooh", said Piglet at last, "what's the first thing you say to yourself?"
"Whats for breakfast?" said Pooh. "What do you say Piglet?"
"I say, I wonder what's going to happen exciting today?" said Piglet.
Pooh nodded thoughtfully, "It's the same thing." he said...
We take food very seriously, whenever possible we use local produce. Our butcher, the Kernow Sausage Company in Tregony, supplies us with delicious award winning handmade sausages, bacon and black pudding. Our milk, butter, cream and yogurt comes from the Trewithen dairy at Lostwithiel and our fruit and vegetables come from Cornish Farm Produce. We use a range of tea and coffee products from a number of Cornish tea/coffee companies. Being just behind the harbour in Mevagissey, we are able to buy all our fish in the harbour.
Cornish tea and locally ground coffee, fruit juices,
a selection of cereals, Trewithen natural yogurt, fresh fruit salad, toast and preserves.
We also serve a full Cornish breakfast consisting of Kernow sausage, back bacon, mushrooms, grilled tomato and black pudding.
Smoked haddock and poached egg, or, Smoked kippers.
Izy prepares the hot breakfasts to order, so a combination of the hot items can be ordered.
