Hella is a perfect beachside retreat for two people  directly on the edge of Portgwarra cove with just a private garden between your front door and the beach. It has everything that you need to have a relaxing and comfortable break including a fully integrated brand new fitted Kitchen with everything you need to cook up a storm including a Smeg gas cooker and a dishwasher.

The kitchen/living room area is spacious and awash with natural Cornish light . The living area is open plan, spacious with a solid ash floor and a  large sofa for relaxing as well as a TV/DVD and Wifi and a bluetooth speaker for your music. The bathroom is on the ground floor and has white subway tiles, a walk in rain forest shower and lashings of hot water.

We know how important a good night’s sleep is and have created a private sanctuary  mezzanine bedroom in the roof tops, up the hand crafted stairs with a super comfortable kingsized bed, top quality natural bedding and a huge rooflight to let the sun flood in. Another rooflight over the bed can be opened to stargaze from the comfort of your pillows. The bedroom is in the roof space so it is an apex shape and so is not possible to stand at the sides of the room. We have made it a super comfortable, private, romantic sanctuary – tucked away in the eaves but it will not be suitable for everyone especially those who have mobility issues or those who prefer a bed that is raised higher off the floor and more headroom.

Facing South, the sun shines into Hella all day long.

The garden is the perfect place to chill out and watch the Seals play in the waves and seabirds of all varieties are to be found in abundance. Porthgwarra is famous among birdwatchers; it is the first south facing shelter for migrating species and rare birds are regular visitors. You will also almost certainly see pods of dolphins and basking sharks in summer months.

There is a barbecue area and a terrace from which to sit out and survey the beauty of the unspoilt Porthgwarra cove.

We provide a firebowl for the garden so you can star gaze to the sound of the waves. We supply the first bag of logs to get you going, additional bags of logs are available at cost price of £5 a bag. It is also possible to forage for wood in the adjacent field.

Winter is the time for spectacular waves and stormy walks with a cosy warm place to hole up and get away from it all.

As this is a newly converted space it has full insulation and central heating which means a living area cool in summer and toasty warm in winter.

There is parking at the bottom of the private garden (or for those with bigger cars who don’t like reversing in tight spaces we can offer an alternative of the NT carpark at £3 a day) and plenty of room for wetsuits, surfboards and all the things you need to enjoy a happy holiday in this secret Cornish cove.

Hella is perfect for dogs and is completely dog friendly at no extra charge. The garden is dog friendly but. is not fully secure in that there is no gate or fencing around it.
