Property code: OC-TIGHNA

Escape to the seaside in this fabulous holiday home with sea views, set right next to Porthleven Beach. The property sleeps four guests, making it ideal for a family getaway or couples’ retreat. The unspoilt village retains much of its old fishing character, with quaint cottages and a picturesque harbour. The village is known for its excellent independent restaurants and also hosts a three-day food festival each year. From the beach you can enjoy walks along the sand and shingle shoreline, to Loe Bar and the National Trust Penrose Estate. If it’s bathing and water sports you’re looking for, head to the family resort of Praa Sands, just 5 miles along the coast; the idyllic white, sandy beach is backed by sand dunes and offers calm, sheltered waters that are perfect for swimming. St Michael’s Mount – one of Cornwall’s most recognised landmarks – makes an excellent day out. Take the ferry across to the island to explore the fascinating medieval church and castle, wander around the subtropical terraced garden and marvel at the breathaking views across the bay.

Enter the property into the open-plan lounge/diner. The light and bright space has high ceilings, elegant decor, and two stunning ornamental fireplaces, one of which houses a cosy wood burner. Curl up in the sumptuous seating after a busy day to read a book or watch a film on the TV/DVD. The dining table seats four guests, and is a lovely spot to all come together after an action-packed day. You'll also find a characterful cottage kitchen, complete with a feature Cornish range. Stairs lead to the first floor, where you’ll find the impressive double bedroom with striking wooden floors and ceiling, and relaxing views out to sea from a cosy window seat. The charming twin bedroom is also located on this floor, along with the stylish family bathroom. Both bedrooms have ornamental fireplaces.

To the rear of the cottage, discover an adorable enclosed courtyard with a bistro set where you can sip a coffee in the sunshine.

This was our 3rd stay in this cosy home by the sea, which says it all really. A comfortable retreat whatever the weather in a seaside town we love to visit.

We had a good week in porthleven. The property was fine but a little tired. The Internet was very poor, only worked for one day! On the plus side the bed was very comfortable.

We had a super time at Tigh-na-Mara, its a great cottage, a hop skip & jump from the beach and 5 minutes to the harbour square. For our four legged member, perfect enclosed patio (escape proof) & enclosed kitchen. The kitchen is well equipped, has the option of a bath or shower, very cosy and possibly the best holiday cottage bed for comfort wevRead moree stayed in. It was fabulous to hear the sea lying in bed. We relaxed very quickly and would love to return. Porthleven is a lovely quaint fishing port. One helpful point for future visitors is the parking, the space is not a problem but on exiting, there are often parked vehicles opposite. My husband managed to negotiate his L200 out but with care. This is not a complaint or to put people off, just the heads up. Theres also plenty to do in Porthleven that you dont need to leave. Happy holidays if you choose here. Hide

Property was in a good location. We did not find the oven easy to use and appeared a bit dated. Bed was comfortable and the place was clean.

The cottage was lovely and welcoming, warm and very clean. The bed was so comfortable and to sit in bed and view the stormy seas was a joy. Very hilly, but certainly helped my fitness. The parking space at the property is a big plus too!

A fantastic five days in a lovely, comfortable cottage. Very lucky with the weather at the time of the year and meant Barney could make full use of the beaches as the dog ban ended 1st Oct. Great restaurants. Our second visit to Porthleven in 2 years. We'll be back again.

Wonderful time, sunny weather, spectacular seascapes, all made even better by our stay at this lovely, cosy, well-equipped cottage. It is one of the best cottages we have stayed at in Cornwall and it was spotlessly clean when we arrived.

Well equipped, immaculate & perfect location. Found the settees low & uncomfortable & the steps outside the property were quite steep. Would have liked the holiday to be cheaper.
