Jane Johnson purchased this cottage in 2004
It is a lovely traditional seaside town made famous by artists such as Alfred Wallis, Ben Nicholson and Barbara Hepworth.
There are lots of lovely galleries including the Tate. There is a surfing beach called Porthmeor, a beautiful sheltered harbour and a pretty beach called Porthgwidden.
It is a very pretty town full of character, cottages, galleries and seaside cafes. Lovely fish restaurants and a relaxed pace. A great place to get away from it all, for a break for a family or couple. Close to the Eden Project and to the Minnack outdoor theatre.
