In the middle of the Cornish Riviera amid secluded beaches and pretty valleys, our Portmellon holiday cottages are ideal for utter relaxation.
Portmellon's small, sandy cove is safe for bathing and low tide reveals lots of rock pools for budding beachcombers. East facing, make sure you watch the sun rise as it pops up out of the sea and also look out for the seals.
There are lots of other beaches in the locality too - secret ones off-the-well-trod path such as Colona and Vault and more family-focused ones like Gorran Haven and Pentewan.
Portmellon's local watering hole is dog and family friendly, situated right on the water's edge with outside seating in summer and a cosy fire for chillier months. Sample fresh fish, farm-reared meats, Cornish ice-cream and regional drinks.
