A characterful cottage by the seafront, just a few yards away from the steps that lead to Porthleven's sandy beach and only 0.4miles from the bustling harbour.  The cottage enjoys sea views and benefits from a tucked-away spot . This picturesque fishing village boasts an array of delightful eateries with a range of menus often featuring locally caught fresh seafood. There’s unique boutiques and pubs nestled around the scenic harbour and incredible views when walking the coast path in either direction. Further along the coast is a great range of beaches to explore including Praa Sands (5 miles), Gunwalloe (7.5 miles) and Perranuthoe (7.5 miles). The market town of Helston (2 miles) has a pretty boating lake and café and hosts an annual, ancient festival in May called Flora Day. The magical island of St Michael’s Mount lies a short drive away (7.5 miles) and has the most beautiful gardens set across sloping terraces with a range of exotic species.

This captivating cottage is welcoming and homely with romantic sea views and convenient entry doors on both levels. The open-plan living area on the upper floor incorporates a cosy wood-burning stove for those cooler evenings in when catching-up with your favourite shows on the Smart TV. A contemporary, well-equipped kitchen space with dining table and seating allows for social mealtimes whilst making plans for the day ahead. Throw open the doors to the two Juliet balconies and breathe in the fresh, salty air and listen to the sounds of the ocean lapping against the sea wall. The bright shower room with walk-in shower is also found on this level. Heading downstairs there are two double bedrooms both with Emma Hybrid mattresses for your comfort and plenty of clever storage space for your belongings.

Step outside from the lower floor and unwind on the small terrace with its outdoor seating and sea views. The convenient outdoor shower, providing both hot and cold water, is ideal for rinsing off children and pets after a day of adventures. Additionally, a practical cupboard is available to store your beach essentials. If you fancy an evening stroll to watch the sun set over the water then this is the perfect spot.
