Photograph of rainbow over the cove at Valley Cottage B&B PortmellonEven in January, after a morning of rain, this is the spectacular view as you wind down to Portmellon Cove, colours of the sea and sky changing as you walk.

We are so fortunate living this close to the South Cornwall coast which has so much to offer, fabulous scenery, deserted beaches, all kinds of weather and flora and fauna ahead of most other parts of the country.

COME ON DOWN!! (We’d love to see you)

Returning guests bring family & friendsPhotograph of sunrise and early morning mist over Portmellon Cove near Valley Cottage B&B

This spell of weather hasn’t deterred previous guests from returning, in fact more of them are bringing family or friends with them and the mist has provided some wonderful vistas over the cove.

The sun is shining & the film crew have gone!Photo of low tide at Portmellon beach near Valley Cottage B&B Portmellon

During last week, a film crew took over the pub, car park and cove, they were blessed with beautiful weather, so witnessed Portmellon at it’s best.

We had a wonderful view of the solar eclipse on Friday from our garden, looking through a welding glass, this led to a very low tide at lunch time today and lots of people were out and about on the beach enjoying the glorious sunshine.
