+ Add to favourites


This section of the page features an image gallery, so if you're using a screen reader you may wish to jump to the main content.

Lacombe is a perfect example of traditional Cornish cottage: low ceilings, original open beams and a solid-fuel stove all add to the charm and character of this exceptionally pretty former fisherman's cottage. Situated just behind Carolina Cellar, Lacombe is one of the oldest buildings in Port Quin and provides the rare experience of staying in a traditional and unspoilt historic cottage, close to the sea. Our other Port Quin holiday cottages include the neighbouring Guy's Cottage and Quin Cottage.

The popular beaches of Rock, Polzeath, Port Isaac are all within 4 miles and the South West Coast Path is on your doorstep.

Cornwall may be steeped in Celtic history yet it also offers the uncomplicated joy of a day spent by the sea. From the picture-box charms of the villages and towns of St Ives, Polzeath and Port Isaac to the raw natural beauty of the coast, one trip to this part of the world is often just the start of many more. Remember to pack some good walking boots and you will be set for life!

    Well equipped cottage

    The cottage, as with all NT cottages, was well presented, comfortable and well-equipped.

    Hope to stay again!

    We loved Lacombe Cottage and dearly hope we will be able to stay there again. We loved the location, not just because it was idyllic but also because we could visit so many places. Lanhydrock House - was one of the best NT houses we had visited - with extremely entertaining and informative staff.

    Wonderful location

    The location of this cottage is quite wonderful and it is a delightful mix of modern comfort together with a retention of the historic character of the building.
