    We love coming here. The views are absolutely stunning. But the cleaners don't do a very good job. There were cobwebs everywhere and the windows were filthy. With views like that you really need clean windows

    Absolutely beautiful little cottage in an amazing location. Cottage was clean and tidy with everything we needed. Beautiful little bay with clear waters and sand. Had great days and evenings out in Mevagissey which is about 20 minutes walk. Rising sun pub just down the road. Good location for exploring the local area's and the South of Cornwall, major town is St Austell which is only about a 20 minute drive away. Will definitely be back.

    Super cottage lying on bed listening to the waves crash on the sea wall is wonderful. If you want peace and tranquility this is the place. Only one pub and no shop so be prepared to drive

    Perfect little hideaway for a couple. Had everything we needed. Pottmellon has a great little pub, but nothing else. Mevagissey is 20 min walk, and has everything else you would need. Highly recommended.

    We nearly didn't attempt the 4hr journey down to Cornwall because of the heavy snowfall, but soooo glad we did. Puffin Burrow was in the most beautiful location. Watching the sun rise and set whilst lying in bed was quite an experience!. The cottage was very comfortable and cozy and everything that we hoped it would be. Let us know if it comes on the Market!

    Fantastic little cottage, small but cosy. Perfect for someone travelling alone or a couple. Stunning location in Portmellon cove with great views of the cove and out to see. Cottage has everything you need. Only thing is lack of wifi, but it obviously wouldn’t stop me staying here. I’m certain I will be back again on one of many return trips to Portmellon.

    This was the most amazing cottage, it was clean, comfortable, well stocked, it was tricky driving through Mevagissy so if you are less confident take the long way round, there is a pay and display carpark nearby, ( no 'onsite' parking), this was less than a fiver for a 24 hour period. The views alone were worth saying in all day for, but if you want to go out there are plenty of lovely places to visit.
