Property code: OC-GRANDA

Originally a fisherman’s net loft, this one-bedroom property in Porthleven, Cornwall, has been lovingly converted into a gem of a home. Perched on a cliff and overlooking the sea, this is the ideal place for a romantic getaway or beach holiday. Porthleven is a charming fishing village and boasts a pretty harbour dotted with seafood restaurants, market stalls, and cafes. And with Porthleven Beach less than 200 yards from the property, you can’t get closer to the sea than this. The beach is popular with experienced surfers while walkers can enjoy the 3-mile trail from Porthleven to Loe Bar.

Compact and comfortable, the rooms are light, airy, and adorned with elegant furnishings. The bedroom is located on the ground floor and features a double bed, cool terracotta flooring, and a huge glass door that drenches the room in uplifting light. In the morning, push open the door, and enjoy the sound of the waves lapping against the shore. From the bedroom, a staircase leads to the first floor where the living area is located. The lounge is neat and comfortable with a seating area, TV, and more glorious sea views while the kitchen is stocked with all the utensils you need to prepare yourself a meal. There’s also an effortlessly neat bathroom on this floor.

Although compact in size, this home has plenty of character and is blessed with stunning outdoor space. Start the day with a coffee on the decked terrace while watching the sun rise over the sea or simply sit and enjoy feeling the sea breeze on your face. There’s also a shady summerhouse where you can take it easy during the day before heading back to the terrace for some al fresco dining at night.

A lovely cottage and perfect for a weeks stay. It was very cosy and comfortable and the garden and summerhouse were a true boon to take in the absolutely fabulous view. We hope to return.

We love coming to Porthleven. Second time in Grandad's Loft. We shall be back. Very small but clean and ideal for two people. Not much room for cooking but we ate out apart from breakfast. Every morning we had a seagull tapping on the door??

We have stayed at Grandad's Net Loft three times in three years. It is in an ideal location with parking. However this year the property is looking tired and tatty in places.

The location of the property was idyllic. BUT in poor weather conditions it would be too cramped, as no sofas or comfortable seating, and the living accommodation is too small. The locks on both the front doors and the door to the garden are DIABOLICAL, stiff and very hard to operate, and one day someone is going to break the keys, and get stuck Read more!! These need changing. The decorative condition needs attention, all window/door frames need work, and so does much of the plaster work inside the cottage. Kitchen/bathroom are well appointed. Nice to have own parking space. Garden furniture was covered in bird muck on arrival and we had to wash this, the cleaners should have done this. The clothes drier needs replacing, too rusty to use and broken in parts. Generally the property needs a fair bit of maintenance and TLC. The garden is unkempt and disappointing. Everything looks very tired. Hide

Lucky the weather was good & we could use outdoor space, as indoors was SO small & this isnt reflected in the price. Locks on front & back doors need attention.

Lovely position. Compact accommodation, lovely terrace when the weather allows. No dining area and only one tray for TV suppers. The outside picnic table was a little heavy to bring into the bedroom area for an evening meal. But don't be put off, we loved it.

The towels and linen were very good. The mattress on the right side had collapsed gave me backache. Cream tea was ok but washing up liquid would have been appreciated a lot more. TV remote was not compatible with TV the up and down did not work.
