One thing is certain, this will be a memorable holiday destination for all the right reasons!

Portmellon is a quiet unspoilt cove with a sandy beach and slipway. It is only a 10 minute walk to the historic fishing port of Mevagissey, a tiny seaside village of small alleyways and traditional buildings, with a selection of restaurants and pubs and shops.

Portmellon is ideally suited to visit the world famous Eden Project, The Lost Gardens Of Heligan and the famous port of Charlestown. It is placed on the Coastal Footpath which runs past the cottage and offers a wealth of destinations both along the coast and inland. Portmellon has a variety of beaches nearby, from the family friendly Gorran Haven to the isolated Vault Beach near Dodman Point. Water sports and cycle hire are on offer at Pentewan.

Meander along narrow lanes past tiny beaches through the beautiful Roseland to St. Mawes. From here take the passenger ferry to Falmouth sailing through the third deepest harbour in the world to visit quayside pubs and restaurants and see The Maritime Museum.

From Rock Cottage you are only a drive away from King Arthur's seat at Tintagel, or Doc Martin's seat at Port Isaac, or an artist's seat at The Tate in St Ives. But, perhaps the nicest part of our location is that without moving you can just sit within touching distance of the sea, and enjoy the view!

Rock Cottage ,Portmellon Amazing Holiday Experience

Rock Cottage a wonderful Cornish cottage filled with everything and we mean everything you could possibly need. The owners had left fresh eggs from their own chickens and homemade cake. Milk, coffee, tea and sugar also supplied so wonderful after a long journey to just sit and make a drink. Biscuits and blanket left for our little puppy. The cottage was beautifully clean, tidy and in the most fantastic location. A beach bag filled with towels and picnic equipment what a great idea was also left for us to use. The owner was so friendly and helpful, a pleasure to meet. If you are thinking of staying in Portmellon try and book Rock Cottage you won't be dissappointed. A big Thank You for letting us stay in such a wonderful holiday home.

Beautiful Cottage with AMAZING Sea Views!

If you want to be close to the sea, Rock cottage is for you! Portmellon is ideal for a quiet relaxing holiday but not too far from the local amenities. The perfect base to explore Cornwall. The cottage itself is beautiful, spotlessly clean and packed with everything you might need on holiday (from beach towels to books to picnic basket!) Would definitely stay again, we are missing the superb sea views out of every window.

Reply from Stuart Douglas

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a kind review. We try to make the cottage as we would like to find it, and equip it to make our guests stay easy and pleasurable. We love living in Portmellon and it is great when our guests enjoy visiting us.

Review of Rock Cottage

A beautiful cottage in a fabulous location, if you like your own personal sun terrace with a sea view this is the place for you! Lots to do locally, lovely walks along the clifftop & not far from Eden & Heligan. The cottage has all mod cons required to give you that home from home experience, very comfortable & highly recommended.

Reply from Stuart Douglas
