This handsome barn was converted to holiday accommodation when it was no longer needed by the farm. Traditionally built in stone and slate, it now makes a large and comfortable holiday cottage ideally situated to discover the Roseland peninsula. Just opposite is the traditional Porth Farm House and down a narrow track nearby is Penhaligon's, a cosy retreat for two.
The delights of Towan Beach are just five minutes walk from the cottage and a perfect place to relax. Children will love exploring the rock pools at nearby Porthcurnick beach at low tide. If it’s an old fashioned beach holiday that you are after then Porth is the spot.
The combination of cliffs, creeks, estuaries, headlands, woods and beaches linked by many miles of footpath, gives a fantastic variety of walking routes. Pick your route to suit your mood, as well as the weather! For a slower pace sit back and enjoy the spectacular views from nearby St Anthony Head.
Close by is the village of Portscatho; during the 18th and 19th Centuries it was an ideal base for the pilchard fleets, it’s still a fishing port today but on a much smaller scale. Here you find several shops, restaurants and pubs along with art galleries.
