Property code: OC-WINDRU

This fantastic property sits high above Portmellon, offering spectacular views of the cove from every window. Sleeping six across three peaceful bedrooms, this holiday home is ideal for families or groups of friends that want a place that’s special enough to spend all day in but is perfectly-placed for exploring the south east coast of Cornwall. Situated on a road that makes up part of the South West Coast Path, you can pull on your walking boots and head off across the cliffs down to Gorran Haven Beach (2.5 miles) and its clear blue water.

This split-level property offers a unique stay with stunning views at every turn. The garden is the true gem, with a terrace that’s perfect for dining alfresco, and a raised decked area to unwind with your favourite book and a tipple. The inside of the holiday home is just as delightful; snuggle up on the sofa in the L-shaped living area and gaze out of the feature window at the waves, or enjoy sociable meals at the dining table. You access this property via a few steps down to the first floor, and when it’s time for bed guests in the twin room head down to the ground floor via external steps.

Portmellon Beach is less than 200 metres from your front door and is often covered by seaweed, giving little ones lots to explore. Porthpean Beach (6 miles) is ideal for sandcastles, while ‘secret’ Hemmick Cove (3.5 miles) may offer more calm. Charming Mevagissey is just 1 mile away; take the kids on the self-guided Treasure Hunt Trail that starts at East Wharf and leads you through the town’s winding streets. You can’t miss the incredible Lost Gardens of Heligan (3 miles) where you can walk through a jungle that’s got its own microclimate.

We have been visiting Cornwall for over 35 years and this is our favourite house-so comfortable with everything we could possibly need and fabulous views wherever we sat. Loved being lulled to sleep by the waves. We will definitely be back. Thank you so much!

Thank you for the Cream Tea and the milk on a later than expected arrival. The property was very spacious and comfortable with many options to enjoy the splendid views. Windrush more than lived up to our expectations. Thank you very much. P.S. Food bought from Lobbs Farm Shop at Heligan was excellent-no need to buy a ticket for Heligan-it's next toRead more the carpark. Hide
