Guest Comments

"Been returning now for past 7 years - love it"

Karen, July 2021

"Puffin Burrow is a lovely cottage with a beautiful view over Portmellon bay. It was clean and equipped with everything we needed. The communication with the owners was first class.We couldn't fault the accommodation at all and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We wouldn't hesitate to come back to Puffin Burrow!"

Allan, July 2021

"We stayed in Puffin Burrow for a week, the view is amazing and hearing the waves from the cottage is so relaxing. The cottage was clean, modern and in a great location. We would definitely stay again in the future and recommend the property to others."

Rehana, June 2021

"Cottage was lovely in an idyllic location. ‘The shack’ was open for some food items but the pub was not serving food when we were there. The cottage was well equipped for cooking. Swift response from owners when we had a query. Lovely views and plenty to watch even in bad weather."

Heather, June 2021

"Lovely well equipped cosy cottage. Drift off to sleep with the sound of the sea. Ideal for walkers and puppy fun on the beach."

Sue, May 2021

"Lovely cottage, fantastic location, we want to go again."

Andy, May 2021

"Had a wonderful week in this lovely cottage , amazingly situated location, fantastic views overlooking the sea.Cottage was very comfy, well equipped and spotlessly clean, tastefully decorated retaining all its charm. Was great to have access to a lower small patio area where you could sit n practically touch the sea. Just a short walk to Mevagissy which we did every day at some point.Definately recommend, and would re visit in a heartbeat."

"A great find, so we have booked again for next year.I could not fault the cottage / location, my only recommendation going forward would be to provide a slip mat for the bath."

Aileen, September 2020

"Overall the stay was very enjoyable. The cottage was exactly what we expected. It was clean, well equipped, and charmingly decorated. It's position on the water's edge allowed for some spectacular views.There are plenty of places to eat in nearby Mevagissey, which is only a 10 minute walk away. Most of them were open. Due to lockdown regulations, the Rising Sun in Portmellon was only serving drinks outside, and the Snack Shack was selling hot drinks and some essentials like milk and eggs.The only (small) convenience store we could find was the Mevagissey News (in Mevagissey itself). There are, however, many larger supermarkets in St. Austell, which is not too far away if required.We would recommend not driving through Mevagissey, as the risk of a traffic jam on Polkirt Hill is just not worth it. We always drove the long way through Gorran Churchtown and then to Pentewan. By the way, the Lost Gardens at Heligan are worth a visit, even if it is just for the tea room. The Wet Fish in Mevagissey Harbour sells fresh food daily. We tried the mussels (almost 2kg), and they were absolutely beautiful and tasty. Definitely worth a visit.For those who enjoy a round of golf, must try Carlyon Bay Golf Club. The views, and facilities are exceptional. If you tee off after 15:00, green fees are only £25.00, instead of the normal £55.00. Porthpean Golf Club, although not quite the same standard of golf course as Carlyon Bay, has equally spectacular views, and the staff are extremely welcoming and friendly. I would definitely recommend a round at Porthpean."

"Cosy cottage in the edge of the cliff overlooking a lovely bay."
