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.

If you are looking for a holiday cottage with breathtaking views towards the Atlantic Ocean then this could be the one for you. Stable Cottage is a characterful property which offers the opportunity to gaze out over Port Quin Bay either from inside the cottage or from the patio.

Close by is the Cornwall coastal path which offers walks in both directions. We recommend the walk following the rugged coast along to Port Isaac where you are sure to find somewhere for a well earned rest and some refreshment.

For those of you that are keen to get out on the water there are plenty of kayaking opportunities locally to explore the hidden coves and enjoy the wildlife and natural beauty of the Cornish coast. Stable Cottage offers storage for kayaks and/or bicycles in the adjacent tack room. We also have a collection of holiday apartments in Doyden House.

The cottage's layout

Ground floor
Open sitting room with multifuel stove, kitchen and dining area. Shower room and toilet. Stairs lead to first floor from the sitting room.

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!

    An ideal location for walking and just gazing at the sunset. Excellent quality of the property. Peaceful but so exciting to just be there.

    Highly recommend

    Stable cottage was wonderful, away from the main places but not too far. The views of the sea and the sunsets were amazing, such a special place. The housekeeper is a credit to the trust she keeps everything perfect - this has been the best kept cottage we have stayed in. I recommend it highly.

    Stunning location

    The property was exactly as described on the website and the location was stunning. It was immaculately presented inside, and the extras provided were greatly appreciated i.e. rucksack, binoculars, maps and information on local area. Lovely welcome tray and a beautiful vase of fresh flowers.....all went to make a enjoyable and comfortable holiday.
