Dolphin Cottage is a delightful, end of terrace, three-storey property, perched directly above the beach overlooking the eastward side of Portmellon Cove. This charming and romantic hideaway is ideal for couples looking for a romantic escape. The cottage will also appeal to small families as there is a sofa bed in the first floor dining room/snug. With the sound of the waves breaking just outside your window, it is a tranquil and relaxing place to unwind.
Portmellon is a quaint cove just outside the small fishing harbour of Mevagissey. At low tide, Portmellon has a wide expanse of beach, ideal for families, kayaking, swimming or simply relaxing. A great local pub just a short stroll away serves good food and local ales, whilst Mevagissey village with its pretty harbour, winding streets, individual shops, art galleries, choice of cafés and restaurants, is just a 15-minute walk away.
This is a real beach lover’s haven and a great family seaside holiday home with the beach right outside the cottage. Walkers will love the easy access to miles of coastal paths and garden enthusiasts will adore the close proximity of the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan. The area is popular all year round and the cottage is a favourite with storm watchers in the winter months with a cosy open fire to snuggle up in front of. From the front door, the slipway is about 30 yards away, and from every room, the sea, or sand at low tide, is forever within a few feet of the window! Beach 20 yards. Shop and restaurant 1 mile, pub 100 yards.

    It was a wonderful location and very restful - plenty to see and do. The cottage was perfectly positioned and although I need of some TLC - new television, cooker hood, a less than hyper -sensitive smoke alarm - provided us with a fantastic base for a great break in beautiful Cornwall

    Fantastic location, views, beach, sound of the sea, mevagissey 10min walk. This place has great potential, it would benefit from from some love and attention, needs updating (especially the bathroom, showers just a trickle). Fire is a real asset, but fire back broken and smokes quite a lot (sets off smoke alarm). A welcome pack and pint of milk would be nice. Bed very comfortable and electric blanket handy( although didn't discover until half way through week).

    Great for exploring the South West Coast Path. Pub close by which is friendly to dogs as well as humans. Very relaxing and quiet location.

    A stunning location, loved watching the waves crash. Short walk to Mevagissey, ideal for access to coast path and main attractions Lost Gardens of Heligan and Eden Project a short drive.

    Hmmm - had great hopes for this place but the property felt neglected. Fire extinguisher expired in 2003, fire alarm next to kitchen did not work, peeling paint, kitchen appeared to be equipped with a random assortment of chipped crockery from the local charity shop, sofa bed was filthy when folded out, linen for sofa bed was missing, tiny TV on table is not ideal for dining options, lack of extractor fans in kitchen and bathroom not ideal. Parking on double yellows to unload luggage is also problematic. Location overlooking sea is priceless.

    The courage is in a stunning location but is cosy and compact. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay as did our dog.

    Dolphin cottage is a charming property in a fabulous location.My only disappointment was the fact that although described as dog friendly there was no private enclosed outside space for the dog.
