Overview

Porthleven Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom, cosy cottage, close to restaurants and amenities

Blue Door Cottage is located in the charming village of Porthleven with its harbour, beach and a selection of good restaurants within just a couple of hundred metres. The cottage has a double and a twin bedroom, comfortably sleeping four to five guests. There is a full size single trundle bed available for a fifth guest if required. Outside there is a small seating area next to our palm tree for outside dining.

Heading west on the coastal path you can explore South West Cornwall with its rugged coastline dotted with fine beaches and on to Mounts Bay and St Michael's Mount. Head East and just a short walk to Loe Bar and the National Trust owned Penrose Estate then on to the Lizard Peninsula, the most Southerly Point in Britain, with its stunning views, coves and amazing wildlife - a must for all keen birdwatchers and wildlife enthusiasts.

Within a short drive the historic and popular town of St Ives (20 minutes), Lands End (35 minutes) and the golden sand surfing beaches of Praa Sands (10 minutes), Sennen (35 minutes), Gwithian (20 minutes) with our favourite, the breath taking Kynance Cove (20 minutes).

Perfect little get away home

  • 5 of 5

Brilliant cottage, wine and scones on arrival, fully equipped kitchen!

Location was really good, a few minutes walk from the harbour and shops.

Rooms were clean and well kept, comfy beds and linen and towels provided! Perfect little home for a week away. Hope to come back again!

Ideal

  • 5 of 5

A pretty, well-appointed cottage just a few minutes walk into the centre of Porthleven. The bed was comfy, the shower was powerful, the sound system was great, the fridge chilled my beers. Spot on. I'll be back.

Stylish, cosy cottage close to the harbour

  • 5 of 5

A spotless and well-maintained cottage with lovely, fresh interior decor. In addition, only a couple of minutes walk from several fantastic restaurants and the picturesque harbour. Positive, friendly and attentive service. We highly recommend!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very warm welcome with scones and jam; the cottage is nice, clean and comfortable with an authentic style, and the owners are very nice as well. The beach is just a short walk away, and Porthleven is a very nice place to stay if you like a relaxing atmosphere. We made a trip to St. Ives, and while it is nice as well, we found it too busy in comparison to Porthleven. The Ship's Inn is definitely worth a visit (or more), and many nice restaurants are located around the harbour. Be sure to visit Kynance Cove (close to Lizard Point). We will very likely be back!

Lovely, clean cottage

  • 5 of 5

A lovely, clean and tidy cottage. Very homely and well equipped. Blue Door is in a great location, quiet and close to the harbour. The scones, milk e.t.c at the cottage were a treat and very welcoming after a long journey. The Ship Inn is a great pub with loads of character and good food, would recommend a visit. Porthleven is a superb holiday destination ( not over busy like St. Ives) the harbour is very quaint with plenty of independent shops and super restaurants.

We will be recommending the cottage to family and friends and hope to return in the future.
