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.

    Dolphin Cottage is a charming seaside themed cottage in a stunning location, a stone's throw from the beach. It is well equipped within the kitchen and living areas and was a very pleasant place to stay for a week. Particularly when the sun was shining- it is a real sun trap! Whilst I understand the age of the property, I do think that the décor is starting to look a little tired and could potentially do with a refresh. The Shower Curtain was mouldy and could benefit from a replacement, the bedding also seemed in need of a newer update. We booked the cottage for 3 people, as my 8 year old son was to stay on the bed settee. On arrival there was no bedding or towels left out for us, which meant searching through some disorganised cupboards to locate these. This could have been a better welcome. We found that some of the crockery was not clean but had potentially been put away by previous tenants, not a problem really but maybe worth the cleaners checking this when they prepare for the next guests. Finally the washing machine also leaks and we were not sure who to mention this to, as there was no contact number available. All in all we have a fabulous time in Portmellon, the short walk to Mevagissey for the main amenities was fine, worth noting that there is only a Pub and small café in Portmellon- there are no shops for groceries etc. Despite our constructive feedback, we would be more than happy to return to this little bolt hole by the sea.

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you very much for your good review and constructive feedback. I have just personally stayed in the cottage and I completely agree with you regarding the shower curtain. This is a housekeeper issue which is being addressed immediately and I can only apologise for those shortcomings. The flaking paint in the lower sitting room is an ongoing problem in an old Cornish seaside cottage unfortunately and is due to be rejuvenated. I am glad that you enjoyed your stay in my lovely cottage and I hope that maybe you will revisit it one day. The details for contact were available on your booking confirmation but they are now clearly displayed on the fridge / freezer in the kitchen. Jane.

    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.
