Escape to the coast in this charming Cornish cottage in the picturesque town of Porthleven. The property sleeps four guests – ideal for small families and couples – and has large living areas and a beautiful suntrap garden. Take a stroll into the heart of the village (500 metres) to explore the cute array of independent shops and potter around the idyllic harbour. The village is known for its fantastic eateries, and also hosts a three-day food festival each year. The 3-mile stretch of sand and shingle beach is rugged beauty at its best, with spectacular scenery in all directions. At low tide, enjoy a peaceful stroll along the water’s edge to visit the lake at Loe Bar or share a picnic in the parkland of the Penrose Estate. There are some fantastic attractions within easy reach of the property, including St Michael’s Mount (9 miles), Lizard Point (14 miles), and Flambards Theme Park (3 miles).

Vibrant flowers lead you to the front door of this delightful cottage. Once inside, you’ll see that much of its original charm has been preserved, with beautiful exposed beams running across the ceilings in the living areas. However, the property has been given a contemporary twist, with sleek furniture and contemporary additions such as underfloor heating, to ensure your stay is as comfortable as possible. The elegant lounge, with its sumptuous seating and chic tiled flooring, is a gorgeous space in which to unwind at the end of an action-packed day. Fire up the wood burner to create a cosy atmosphere and watch your favourite film on the Smart TV/DVD. Come together for memorable mealtimes in the spacious kitchen/diner, where you’ll find a large wooden table to seat everyone and an excellent array of appliances. On the first floor you’ll find the two bright and airy bedrooms, a king-size and a twin, both of which have been decorated in calming tones. A stylish family bathroom completes the cottage.

Outside, discover a deceptively spacious patio-style garden. The area is fully enclosed and has pretty flower beds, a BBQ, and outdoor furniture, creating a tranquil haven for al fresco dining and soaking up the Cornish sunshine.
