Dolphin Cottage is an end of terrace cottage that is perched on the rocks above Portmellon Cove, at high tide you feel as though the sea is lapping around your feet while at low tide a generous expanse of golden sand is exposed. The cottage has three floors, and every room has views of the cove. Dolphin Cottage is dog friendly, and there are miles of the most fantastic walks either straight from your door or within a short drive. The cottage has the main living area on the first floor with a snug / dining room and kitchen. The master bedroom is above, and there is a living room with open fire and a sofa bed on the ground floor.
Portmellon is a quiet little cove surrounding a sandy beach and, if you are an early riser, boasts some magical sunrises as the cove is east facing and usually protected from the prevailing winds. Appropriately the local public house, 50m away, is "The Rising Sun" which serves local ales and home cooked food. Portmellon is less than a mile from the pretty harbour of Mevagissey which was once the centre of the Pilchard industry on the South Coast and most of the quaint cottages around the harbour were originally built during these times. Mevagissey is well endowed with a great variety of further pubs, shops and restaurants, boat trips are available, including the regular ferry to Fowey. Further west is the pretty village of Gorran Haven, Caerhays Castle and the magnificent Roseland Peninsula.
