From a touch of luxury to characterful heritage, experience one of our truly inspiring holiday properties.


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.

Just 50 yards from a sandy beach on the water’s edge, with an uninterrupted view of Portmellon Cove, this sheltered, south-facing and cosy 18th-century cottage (right hand, white cottage below balcony in photograph) enjoys a suntrap setting above the water. The coastal road winds through the quiet port of Portmellon, and Puffin Burrow is only 50 yards from the local inn and within walking distance of the delightful harbour, restaurants and pubs of Mevagissey. The legendary Lost Gardens of Heligan are 2 miles away. Ideally situated for the Eden Project. Shops ½ mile.

    Lovely dog friendly cottage with a complete sea view and nothing in front to oscure the view! There is a separate little table and 2 chairs right outside your window which is safe for your dog as they are behind the sea wall (but humans can still see over the top when seated!) and also 2 chairs down the steps on a little terrace shared with the cottage next door which was never a problem. The actual cottage is very clean and cozy and was bigger than I expected. Lovely furnishings and a comfy sofa and small dining table, fully equipped kitchen and a large bedroom upstairs with nice bedding. It was a nice touch to find a large vase of flowers in the kitchen on our arrival and some milk in the fridge. The owner was very friendly and helpful when I called for the key code a few days before and sent me directions to the cottage which were spot on! Great days out to Fowey, The Lost Gardens of Heligan and the Lizard peninsula as not been to that region before. Mevagissey itself was a pretty fishing village with lots of good dog friendly restaurants/pubs (10-15 minutes walk and there is also The Rising Sun 2 minutes walk from the cottage in Port Mellon. Met people in other cottages who were on their 9th and 15th visit!

    We stayed in Puffin Burrow as our base for walking the coastal path. Really enjoyed the peaceful location. Beautiful cottage. One or two little things needed sorting but the owner was quick to reply and promise to sort for the next guests. Highly recommended, although not too much as we might like to go back some time!

    A lovely cottage literally by the sea. The little terrace down the steps from the cottage was lovely. Fantastic location and a 10 min walk into Mevagissey. The cottage has all the features and comforts for a home from home. Lovely thick fluffy towels, fresh flowers in the living room and nice touches like fresh milk in the fridge which were thoughtful. Would highly recommend and would certainly stay here again.

    A wonderful week in a beautiful location. Going to sleep with the gentle sound of the sea coming through the window is magical. If we had not decided to move to Cornwall we would certainly return in the future!

    Puffin Burrow is certainly the place to stay. As soon as you walk through the door you feel at home. Clean, cosy and comfortable and roses giving you that extra special touch of welcome. Its situation is pefect to visit Cornwall and walking the coastal path. I cannot recommend high enough. We will certainly be back in the future.

    Great cottage in a unique position. Beautifully clean on arrival, with some really nice touches, flowers, milk etc awaiting our arrival. Weve been 3 times, and already looking forward to next year, just might go earlier in th year next time.
