Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. The location was breathtaking and the little details such as fresh flowers and milk in the fridge on our arrival were lovely. March 2012.
  2. In winter a very quiet but fantastic location, lovely view of the bay, great base for walking. Cosy and comfortable. Feb 2012.
  3. My fifth visit to Puffin Barrow its magical and never disappoints. The cottage is an ideal place for a couple and so relaxing. I have experienced spring, summer and winter at this location just brilliant. Nov 2011.
  4. We found the property was perfect for two people and the location was perfect, no shops only a pub which we never used anyway. Safe for swimming, absolutely beautiful. July 2011.
  5. We loved Puffin Burrow. We already know the area and owned a cottage in that row. Puffin Burrow is charming - very well equipped and beautifully clean and welcoming. The fresh flowers and tea, coffee and milk were very thoughtful. We loved the bedroom with the excellent view. Everthing about it was excellent and we would definitely visit again. June 2011.
  6. The location and presentation. Feb 2011.
  7. Incredible situation, very warm and cosy as we were there in January. Well situated for a base to explore from. Jan 2010.
  8. The key feature of this property is the location, then location and finally location being right on the sea edge and, if the weather appropriate, access to a private patio just above the rocks which must be splendid for sitting and eating out. The cottage is very cosily warm in the coldest weather thanks to night storage heaters and electric fire. The furnishings and television are basic but acceptable but this is a cottage to use as a base for exploring the area not for sitting in all day, in that respect it is excellent. Dec 2010.
  9. Loved the location of this property, overlooking the sea and right on the beach. Visited during the snow in December so was a little worried how warm the cottage would be, but happy to report that it was very snug and cosy! Would definitely return! Dec 2010.
  10. Very comfortable little cottage. Oct 2010.
  11. The location was perfect. Sept 2010.
  12. Stunning location the sea came right up to the cottage patio area. Aug 2010.
  13. The situation is wonderful and all the things you need are there including foil and oil and salt, tea towels and oven mit. The vase of fresh flowers, towel and soap was an unexpected bonus. I thought that there would be trouble parking but there was no problem. July 2010.
  14. Proximity to sea and reasonable access to shops in Mevagissey. Quick access to coastal path. Near to Heligan, Eden and other places of interest. May 2010.
  15. Tucked away, but with superb views of the bay. Feb 2010.
  16. Great location, really warm and cosy, flowers and milk on arival were a nice touch, will certainly return. Feb 2010.
  17. Supurb situation and all facilities that you could want. Jan 2010.
  18. The location is superb, and access to the beach a bonus. The cottage is warm. The owner was very helpful in his advice about arrival. ( I would have appreciated a week’s notice of the location of the key as as a prospective holidayer who had paid the fees long in advance, to set our mind at ease about the arrival I had to make quite a few phone calls to get any answer on this). Nov 2009.
  19. The property is in a fantastic position above a rocky drop to the sea with panoramic view across the water to the headland and beach. There is a pub, from which you could take drinks to the sea wall, just a hundred feet away from the accommodation, making it pretty handy! Also, small covey bays are within a few miles, and Mevagissey is adorable! Aug 2009.
  20. Great view’s and spotless, just the right size for two people. Cosy and warm. Aug 2009.
