Cosy bijou cottage

  • 5 of 5

A beautifully restored cottage ,very tastefully decorated with everything you require for a short stay. We were really impressed with the personal touches such as the cream tea, wine and flowers. The cottage is easy walking distance from the harbour with many excellent restaurants. Phil is an excellent host, many thanks and hope to be back.

A real gem of a place both cottage and Porthleven. We had a really lovely stay very sunny, spent quite lot of time beach and harbour. Lots to see in this part of Cornwall too. Mousehole, coast and round to Ives. Didn't have enough time see everything or try restaurants which looked good. Will have to come back. Owner very helpful too. Thank you.

A beautifully presented cosy cottage

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a week here during the Easter holidays at the blue door, communication was great from the start. The cottage is cosy and has everything you need for your perfect holiday. Great location just a short stroll from the harbour. A very Cornish welcome with scones clotted cream and jam ( and a bottle of wine !) a perfect start to the perfect holiday. Lots of lovely places to eat, Rick steins definitely worth a visit and also the harbour inn does a proper burger! There Are lots of other restaurants too. A great vibe in Porthleven and a great place to base yourselves for some amazing coastal walks and hidden coves along the lizard peninsula. Thanks Phil, we had a lovely stay at the blue door.
