Buckingham House is situated on Tregoney Hill, just a short walk from the principal vehicular and pedestrian thoroughfare of Mevagissey, which is famous for its eclectic mix of gift and niche retailers and also the bustling working harbour.

Situated on Cornwall’s south coast Mevagissey is a very popular tourist destination due to its picturesque harbour and historic fishing community. St Austell is the nearest town, approximately 7 miles in distance, with the Lost Gardens of Heligan, the Eden Project and numerous beaches and coves within a short distance.
