Portmellon is a pretty cove that is within a stones throw of the property. There is a lovely sandy beach with a Public House set to one side. The Cornish Coastal Path passes close to the house and leads to neighbouring Gorran Haven and Mevagissey. The beaches at Portmellon and Gorran Haven have free boat launching.

As a working fishing village on the south Cornish coast, Mevagissey is renowned for its labyrinth of quaint cob and slate fisherman’s cottages, retaining much of its charm through its tiny winding streets and is particularly noteworthy for its historic twin harbour walls. Much of the nearby coastline is owned and protected by the National Trust and offers spectacular coastal walks. Mevagissey caters well for everyday needs having everyday shops, gift shops, public houses and restaurants, as well as an activity/sports centre with sports grounds. Locally there is Polstreath beach which is within walking distance, as well as Porthpean, Gorran Haven and Caerhays beaches being near by.
