This cosy cottage is in an enviable location and features a woodburning stove in the living area. It can be booked on its own for up to three guests or combined with next door Porth Farm House for a larger party of up to eight adults which then provides an ideal solution for a family get together or a group of friends who want to stay on the coast. Just a short walk away is Porth Barn, a spacious cottage sleeping up to six guests and further down a narrow track is Penhaligon's, a perfect, romantic retreat for two.
The partially enclosed garden at the rear of the cottage has outside seating to enjoy these lovely surroundings. Towan beach is a five minute walk away along the footpath and children will love exploring the rock pools at nearby Porthcurnick beach at low tide. If it's an old fashioned beach holiday 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 and everything the Roseland peninsula has to offer.
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 will find several shops, restaurants and pubs along with art galleries.
Children: As the cottage is on the side of the road the gate should be kept shut at all times to keep younger children safe.

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!
