St Ewe

St Ewe parish and this picturesque little village lie in the agricultural area west of Mevagissey. An attractive village with a 14th century church. The church of All Saints has a carved octagonal spire, and inside the church are the village stocks, and a rood screen that is the only one in Cornwall to have survived the attentions of Cromwell's soldiers.

East of St Ewe is Heligan House, built in the late 17th century. The extensive "Lost Gardens of Heligan" have been restored and are now open to the public.

Heligan cottage is close to two fantastic local vineyards Bosue and Polmassick.

Bosue - There has been a farm at Bosue for hundreds of years. Located approximately one mile North of St Ewe and close to The Lost Gardens of Heligan. Paul & Liz will provide a great welcome and look forward to enlightening you following the completion of their winery in 2006 how they process and bottle the grapes on site.

Polmassick - Nick and Jo West and family, as new owners of Polmassick vineyard, welcome you to visit the winery and “cellar door” to sample our 2012 vintage of white and rose wines.

As Cornwall's “oldest” vineyard, planted in 1978, Nick and Jo plan to undertake extensive replanting of new varieties of vines to replace some of the existing “tired” vines. Unfortunately we cannot do vineyard tours until the 2015 season.
