Skippers Cabin is a traditional stone building; formerly a shepherd’s hut. Surrounded by countryside, the cabin commands an enviable position at the head of the secluded valley running down to Porth Mear cove, a rock poolers paradise. Porthcothan’s sandy beach is just a mile away; Mawgan Porth and Watergate three miles, making the location difficult to match.
With everything thoughtfully provided, this is a perfect base from which to enjoy coastal walks from your doorstep. On warm days, why not eat al fresco and rustle something up on the barbecue? Don't be surprised if inquisitively livestock come up to your window or to see the declining Corn Bunting population; birds which have suffered dramatic decline but are now benefiting from this area abundant with wildflowers. Watch for the barn owl!

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!
