“Excellent B&B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2014

My husband and I had a lovely 2 night stay at Wild Air. The positives; parking on site (I know it might be old to put this first - but in cornwall villages parking is a big issue), views out to sea from breakfast room, the room (1st floor - large enough to have a sofa, great views from windows, ensuite was a good sized shower room), breakfast was very good (vast choice including smoked haddock, we liked the large shared table as this encouraged chat with other guests), Clare (host) is friendly and helpful (lending maps and guidebooks plus recommendations for eating).

The only possible thing to consider before you book is that it is a 5 min walk up hill from the harbour - but that enables the views and the parking. If you have mobility issues this may be an issue but otherwise just enjoy the views across the harbour as you stroll along.

In its price bracket this is an excellent B&B.

Oh and Mevagissy is a very wonderful fishing village - not as touristy as others.

Room Tip: upstairs ensuite room if possible.

Many thanks for taking the time to do such a comprehensive review about Wild Air. I am of course delighted that you enjoyed our breath taking views, our breakfasts (we pride ourselves on our selection given the size of the B&B) including sharing the table with other guests as well as the information I was able to supply to enhance your stay with us. As you rightly point out we are up a hill which in turn affords fantastic views and the addition of onsite parking for ALL our guests which is a MUST in Mevagissey and is clearly mentioned on our website.

Mevagissey is indeed a wonderful fishing village and my husbands family have fished here for 400 years, we have extensive knowledge of the area which we are delighted to share with our guests to help them get the very best out of their visit to Cornwall.

We had a fabulous short break at Wild Air. Our room was clean and had fantastic views of the harbour. The breakfast was great and Claire was a lovely hostess. She gave us lots of good advice on great walks and where to eat. The parking was a real bonus. We will definitely return.

My wife & I stayed 2nights here on a trip to Devon & Cornwall. Clare & Mike are great hosts & made a memorable stay with their generous hospitality & attention. The accommodation was very clean & comfortable with stunning sea views. Breakfasts were excellent with a large selection to choose from. There are many places to visit & the harbour a walk down the hill. We highly recommend Wild Air & hope to revisit.

We have just returned from a wonderful stay at this first class guest house. From the moment we entered we were given a warm welcome from Claire our host. Claires attention to detail is just perfect,from the immaculate room to the wonderful choice for breakfast, nothing is too much trouble. There are 3 rooms and all guests eat together, and although this may seem a little daunting Claire has a way of putting everyone at ease, creating a relaxed and friendly ambiance.
We enjoyed 3 wonderful nights, a lovely room overlooking the beautiful harbour, superb weather, fantastic food and a wonderful host - Claire cares about her guests and this is reflected in the way her guest house is run,she is on hand to offer some fabulous ideas on places to visit providing maps and literature if required.
Thank you - we very much hope to return one day.

Room Tip: We had a downstairs room with ensuite

It was an absolute pleasure having you to stay with us. I am always delighted when guests enjoy their stay and especially so when they take the time to write such a glowing review. You are very right when you say I care about my guests, they are the most important thing about our business and this is reflected in the large list of returning guests that we have, and we certainly look forward to welcoming you back soon. Many thanks again to you both.

We staid here for 3 nights during our trip through Southwest England. Already the view arriving at the site was breathtaking. From the house as well as from our room (no 3) and even from our bed we could enjoy the magnific view of the coast and the harbour. It's a very quiet place. Clare is a perfect hostess and we enjoyed very much her delicious breakfasts in company of other sympathic and interesting guests. We enjoyed to have our own car park at the guest house after passing the nice village with its very narrow roads. If we were in this area again, we would not hesitate to return to the Wild Air Guest House.

This year Mevagissey was our third stay on our journey through Devon and Cornwall. We came in May from South-Germany and had a long way to travel. My wife and me spent three nights in Wild Air Guesthouse together with our daughter and her husband and it was as good as it was two and even four years ago. Clare is a fantastic host and everything was so as we wanted it to be. From our rooms we had an outstanding view over Mevagissey harbour - I think perhaps the best view you can have in a hotel or a B & B accomodation when you stay in Cornwall. We had a very warm and friendly welcome by Clare who reads every wish you have from your eyes, we had very calm nights and tremendous good breakfasts in the morning. It were again three wonderful days with good sightseeing-tips by Clare and a long walk through the lovely Garden of Heligan. You should have come in May to see these fantastic garden in full bloom. Wild Air, Clare and Mevagissey we all love you so much. Thank you Clare for your hospitality. We'll gladly come back again.
