Perched right on the cliff top with fantastic sea views and a sandy beach just 50 yards away, Puffin Burrow is an ideal seaside retreat for two.

Perched right on the cliff top with fantastic sea views and a sandy beach just 50 yards away, Puffin Burrow is an ideal seaside retreat for two.

Puffin Burrow is a charming romantic couples retreat by the edge of the sea in the traditional Cornish village of Portmellon.
There are beautiful sea views stretching out across pretty Chapel Point from the bedroom, living room and the two sunny patio areas. The interior of this 18th century traditional, end terrace Fishermans cottage has been sensitively modernised whilst retaining its period character. With the glorious Cornish sea air and tranquil sounds of waves lapping just outside, Puffin Burrow offers a relaxing and calming escape to reinvigorate the soul.

The house is on the South West Coastal Path with great walks in both directions. Garden enthusiasts will appreciate the close proximity of the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan. Others will love relaxing on the patio watching the day go by.

Portmellon is a quiet attractive cove surrounding a sandy beach. 50 yards from Puffin Burrow there is a traditional pub which serves local ales and home cooked food. There are kayak and paddle board hire facilities and a small outside cafe in the summer months. Portmellon is a short walk away from the pretty harbour of Mevagissey with its quaint cottages around the fishing harbour supporting a great variety of pubs, shops and restaurants.

    Had a wonderful week in this lovely cottage , amazingly situated location, fantastic views overlooking the sea.Cottage was very comfy, well equipped and spotlessly clean, tastefully decorated retaining all its charm. Was great to have access to a lower small patio area where you could sit n practically touch the sea. Just a short walk to Mevagissy which we did every day at some point.Definately recommend, and would re visit in a heartbeat.

    Overall the stay was very enjoyable. The cottage was exactly what we expected. It was clean, well equipped, and charmingly decorated. It's position on the water's edge allowed for some spectacular views. There are plenty of places to eat in nearby Mevagissey, which is only a 10 minute walk away. Most of them were open. Due to lockdown regulations, the Rising Sun in Portmellon was only serving drinks outside, and the Snack Shack was selling hot drinks and some essentials like milk and eggs. The only (small) convenience store we could find was the Mevagissey News (in Mevagissey itself). There are, however, many larger supermarkets in St. Austell, which is not too far away if required. We would recommend not driving through Mevagissey, as the risk of a traffic jam on Polkirt Hill is just not worth it. We always drove the long way through Gorran Churchtown and then to Pentewan. By the way, the Lost Gardens at Heligan are worth a visit, even if it is just for the tea room. The Wet Fish in Mevagissey Harbour sells fresh food daily. We tried the mussels (almost 2kg), and they were absolutely beautiful and tasty. Definitely worth a visit. For those who enjoy a round of golf, must try Carlyon Bay Golf Club. The views, and facilities are exceptional. If you tee off after 15:00, green fees are only £25.00, instead of the normal £55.00. Porthpean Golf Club, although not quite the same standard of golf course as Carlyon Bay, has equally spectacular views, and the staff are extremely welcoming and friendly. I would definitely recommend a round at Porthpean.
