The Old Ration Shop is a newly refurbished cottage for two.

Views are of farmland, cliffs and sea glimpses beyond. The South West coastal path is nearby (approximately 7 minutes walk) offering beautiful walks in both directions passing fabulous beaches and overlooking the bluest of seas. The Halzephron Inn, the perfect place to watch the sunset, is a short stroll away with views over Mounts Bay and Fishing Cove.

The Old Ration Shop is arranged over two floors and is attached on one side to the owners cottage. There is a private enclosed Mediterranean style garden.

LOVELY COTTAGE IN A RURAL AREA CLOSE TO THE SEE

  • 5 of 5
The old ration shop is a stylish cottage, which is lovely decorated in a rural, quiet area. The property was clean and well equiped. There is a own garten place to sit. The owners are friendly and helpful. We were wellcomed with selfmade scones and marmelade.
The cottage is close to the see (about 1/2 mile) and some beaches. The coastpath is also a few hundred meters away, where we did several amazing walking-tours. Close by the property there is a good gastro-pub (Halzephron Inn), where we have got good food and bear. The next bigger town with supermarkets is about 3 miles away.
The Old Ration Shop is an ideal starting-point for excursions and to discover the beautiful province of southwest Cornwall (for example St. Ives, Porthcumo beach and Minack open air theatre, Land's End and Lizard Island).
We enjoyed our stay at The Old Ration Shop very much and can recommend this place to everyone.

LOVELY COTTAGE, GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
Immaculate and well equipped holiday cottage in a great location. Ideal for a peaceful relaxing break.
The coastal path is within a few minutes walk from the cottage and we took advantage of this to walk direct from the cottage to both Mullion & Porthleven.
Also right on the dooorstep for all the other walks, fantastic beaches and villages on the Lizard, particularly Kynance Cove & Coverack. Great seafood restaurant at The Lifeboat House, Coverack.
Amanda & Ian are lovely hosts. We loved the cream tea on arrival and the half dozen eggs with brilliant yellow yolks, made fantastic scrambled eggs.
Lovely cottage to come back to at the the end of a day in the fresh Cornish air.

PARADISE IN PORTHLEVEN

  • 5 of 5
Perfect hideaway in a peaceful location. Luxuriously decorated cottage that catered for our every need. The hosts provided everything for a comfortable stay, the outdoor space was more than adequate for enjoying a quiet well deserved glass of wine! We only wish we'd stayed long enough to meet the hens! A place to return to again and again.

LONG WEEKEND IN GUNWALLOE

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at The Old Ration Shop for a long weekend in February. The property was spotlessly clean and very well equipped and has a lovely "beach house" feel with painted wooden floors throughout. The bed was wonderfully comfortable and upstairs the sitting room was cosy. We had our own garden cleverly screened from the owners, with mature olive tree and table and chairs. A wonderful spot for a glass of wine on a summer evening - or even a February evening! Within a 10 minute walk is the local pub which is a great place to sit and watch the sunset, as well as serving good pub grub. Also within 10 minutes walk is the coastal path and a lovely long sandy beach(Fishing Cove) from where you can - as we did - walk to Porthleven for lunch. At the end of the road is Church Cove - another great beach - and a golf course. What more could you want, sun and sand for the girls and golf for the boys!

Amanda and Ian were very welcoming and knowledgable about the area and suggested many walks and places to visit. They were very discreet and most of the time we were never aware of them next door.

Such a shame we were only there for a short time. Will definitely be back for a longer stay in the summer.

Gunwalloe is a small former fishing village located on the Lizard Peninsular on the coast between Porthleven and Mullion. It's a haven for walkers, surfers, bird watchers and beachcombers. This area has much to offer. Beautiful beaches, picturesque fishing villages and spectacular scenery. Cornwall has many beautiful gardens notably Heligan and The Eden Project, both an hour away. Falmouth is our closest large town (20 minutes) with it's Maritime history and museum. St Ives, home of Tate Modern and numerous galleries and restaurants is 40 minutes away. The Old Ration Shop is well positioned to explore most of Cornwall.
