Luxury self-catering accommodation in Portmellon

Slow down, savour the simple pleasures, and create memories that will linger long after the tide has washed away your footprints in the sand in this lesser-visited corner of Cornwall.

This coastal settlement, with its rich history of boat building and sandy beaches, is ideal for those seeking a tranquil escape in South East Cornwall. Cottages line the seafront, their sturdy wooden shutters a giveaway of the occasional storm that sends waves hurtling across the road. But don't let that deter you – the beach at Portmellon is truly lovely. At low tide, a good expanse of flat sand is revealed, ideal for a stroll or a spot of sunbathing. While it may disappear as the tide comes in, the cove remains a sheltered and safe spot for a refreshing swim or yoga SUP session.

Alternatively, pack up a picnic and head further afield. To the north you’ll journey along the sweeping arc of St Austell Bay with its China clay heritage and numerous beaches – find calm, clear waters at Porthpean and powdery stretches at Carylon Bay. Southwards, you’ll arrive in the fishing villages of Gorran Haven and Mevagissey, with its working harbour. The Lost Gardens of Heligan are also just a short drive away. This botanical oasis, with its ancient woodlands, and subtropical jungle, is one of the most beautiful gardens in Cornwall.
