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.

    A great way to celebrate our 40th(ruby) anniversary. Just what the doctor ordered. A fantastic place to stay and relax.

    We have visited many times - love it! Bathroom could be updated possibly. Free wifi at the pub so break in the cottage from it is actually a bonus!

    Puffin Burrow is a very nice and cosy cottage, right by the sea. It's quite complete and even has a comfortable electric stove with lighted flames. For your partner to enjoy a warm shower, one shouldn't shower too long though. And if you consider not having wifi or 3/4G a blessing, you're in the right place!

    Lovely spot overlooking the bay. Lying in bed I could look out at the sea. Pity about the weather but can't help that! The cottage is lovely, cosy and I bet it's lovely in the winter. My only small comments are that some of the glasses and ovenware were not clean and it would have been nice to have a BBQ, oh and the loo is difficult because it's so close to the wall....mentioned a lot in the visitors book!

    We had a lovely time at this marvellous cottage even when the weather was not so good. We would love to return next year for 2 weeks but I can't find 2 together such a pity, however we will be back

    Perfect location. Lack of local shop. Thoroughly enjoyed being so close to the ocean. Beds were comfortable. Kitchen was well equipped.

    Don't really want to say how beautiful this place is in case we can't book due to demand - seriously we've booked October and June next year already the cottage is beautiful we'd live there tomorrow if we could - highly recommend

    Wonderful place to escape to and a lovely cottage. I even took a few days out of my week at the cottage and overall sightseeing holiday just to stay at the cottage to read and relax, it was one of the highlights of my 6 week holiday. My mistake that it didn't have wifi but did manage to find some cafes that did. Also not being from the UK it took me a couple of days to figure out how to use the TV. Would be good to fix the toilet seat if possible. Would definitely stay again if I ever get the chance.
