St Ewe is well located as a place for a holiday in Cornwall. The world famous Lost Gardens of Heligan are in the Parish, Cornwall’s beautiful south coast is on the doorstep, the historic fishing village of Mevagissey is just down the road and the Roseland Peninsula is a short drive away.
The quiet village centre, and the many lovely farms and hamlets offering bed and breakfast and self-catering accommodation offer visitors the opportunity to wake up listening to birdsong and watch skies full of stars at night. Winding country lanes make you feel as if you are away from the real world, but great local restaurants and pubs keep you well-fed and wanting to return.
This directory is intended as a short guide to some of the accommodation available in the local area. Please click the links to visit the websites and find out more about these places to stay.
