The property

This delightful Cornish cottage dates back to the early 1800's and is quietly positioned down a country lane just two miles from the harbour and beach at Porthleven.

A short stroll will take you to the village of Breage where you will find a village post office and a local pub. The nearby fishing village of Porthleven is just a 5 minute drive. Here you will find a plethora of amenities including fine restaurants, Rick Steins being one, good pubs, a high calibre deli with wood fired pizza take away, pharmacy and a good fish and chip shop! What is more, there is a perfect beach for families with rock pools for the young and fishing trips for the more adventurous and an excellent fishmonger for those whose luck did not prevail! The walkers amongst you may like to walk to the beach at Rinsey Cove just 2 miles away and dog friendly all year round. You can then join the coastal footpath from here and go right towards Praa sands or left to Porthleven, what spectacular views along the way.

Retaining many period features, ornate fireplaces and low beamed ceilings the cottage is full of homely charm and is a cosy retreat for all seasons. A wood burning stove welcomes you into an open plan kitchen diner where family meals can be enjoyed around a traditional farmhouse table. Comfortable red sofas in the living room add a splash of colour and contrast against the rough rendered white washed cottage walls. A staircase leads you to the upstairs bedrooms where crisp white linen complete this pretty country cottage and where views can be enjoyed across the fields and countryside as far as the coast and sea. To the rear of the cottage, you will find a patio garden enclosed by stone walls and bordering fields, which is a very sheltered spot to enjoy alfresco meals or a summer evening barbecue.

About the location


Porthleven 3 miles; Falmouth 12 miles; Penzance 14 miles.

Helston lies at the western gateway to the Lizard Peninsula, a large area of downland fringed by a beautiful and spectacular coastline. Helston is a pleasant busy market town famous for its Flora Day Festival and the many stories and legends about the "Furry Dance" are told in the fascinating Helston Folk Museum. Nearby is the Poldark Mine, one of the best underground experiences in the south west and which tells of the widespread mining heritage of this area. Nestled in a tranquil setting is the National Seal Sanctuary on the Helford River, where there is plenty of entertainment watching seals play and feed. If it is thrill rides that excites you, then Flambards theme park will keep you amused all day and also has excellent living history experiences. Further afield is the harbour town of Falmouth to the east and Land's End to the west. Helston is a wonderful holiday destination offering plenty of attractions for the whole family.
