Property code: OC-P00877

A delightful dormer bungalow sitting on a hill overlooking Porthleven and the Cornish coast. With three bedrooms and an enclosed garden, this property is ideal for friends, families with children – or anyone who wants to explore this gorgeous corner of Cornwall. The most southerly port in Britain, Porthleven is a popular place with tourists who come to explore its natural and artificial attractions. Stroll down the hill from your cottage to explore the town centre with its independent shops, art galleries, excellent restaurants, and traditional pubs. Spend the day on the beautiful beach, visit the busy harbour, and hop on a boat to take a cruise or fishing trip. Then, hit the hiking trails and walk to The Loe (1.5 miles), where only a strip of shingle beach separates Cornwall’s largest freshwater lake from the sea.

This beautiful bungalow was refurbished in 2021 to create a comfortable, welcoming holiday home. The large kitchen is fully equipped for all your catering needs, and you can dine with a sea view at the table in the lounge. After dinner, relax on the squashy sofas with a statement coffee table and a Smart TV or gazing out at the view. Or head into the sunroom, where the picture windows at the front of the house offer expansive coastal views. Take a seat on the comfortable chairs and watch as the sky turns pink with a Cornish sunset. Also, on the ground floor, you’ll find a comfortable single room with artwork celebrating the beautiful coastline and a spacious twin with a bay window offering views of the garden and coast. The twin beds can be combined to make a super-king-size room. These two bedrooms share a ground-floor bathroom. On the first floor of this dormer bungalow is the main bedroom. It has a king-size bed, a picture window which frames the sea view, an en-suite shower room and a separate WC.

Step outside this property and down the stone steps to the lovely, enclosed garden with a lawn area, picnic table, brick BBQ and gorgeous sea views. It's a beautiful place to soak up the sun, enjoy al fresco dinners and relax with a sunset drink.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Tamarind. This cottage fulfilled or exceeded our high expectations. We rate it 5 stars in all aspects and would recommend it to anyone without hesitation. Porthleven is a lovely town offering a variety of pubs and restaurants as well as a small supermarket, plus beach walks.

Had a really fantastic week away at Tamarind. The property is stunning - it has beautiful sea views and is within a short walk of Porthleven. Extremely comfortable beds and amazing sofas - we particularly liked the charging ports in the side - it proved very popular with two teenagers. Very well supplied kitchen with a lovely welcome pack. It was oRead moreur first trip to Cornwall. Porthleven and the surrounding area were fabulous and very dog friendly. Cannot recommend the property and the area enough. We will definitely book again.

Property was excellent and the benefit of off street parking was amazing! All furniture was excellent and property very well stocked. Upstairs shower not the most accessible for someone taller like me but did not significantly impact our stay.

A few things to help improve - Instructions on how to unlock the bin - it took us 4 days to realise there was a key! Upstairs is very low ceilings - I think beams should be painted or something - as my husband hit ihis head on them 4 days in a row when getting out of bed. More bin bags would be good. The entrance to the driveway was very hard for uRead mores to get our car in and out of - we have a large Q7 Audi - and the pillars as you enter the drive made it very hard to manouver - I would suggest removing one of them.

The property had great views and an amazing garden. It was very spacious inside. It was close to the beach and pubs nearby which was a massive plus. However, the beds were not the most comfortable and the property does not really have a proper barbeque.

The property was exactly as described in your details, the only thing we were slightly disappointed by was its closeness to the two roads next to its garden but luckily they were not to busy during our stay. Its very well placed for walking into the centre of Porthleven. The welcome pack was also very good. A most enjoyable weeks holiday.

The house was really lovely - location, cleanliness and overall. Really liked the extra touch of a cream tea waiting for us (plus apple juice). Communication with Cornish Horizon was very good - information and instructions spot on.
