About the property

Beautiful converted Barn in Portholland, Roseland Peninsula, Cornwall - In An Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Just 50 Metres From The Seafront!

Pond Meadow was once a hayloft with milking parlour below, It has now been converted to a beautiful 3 bed holiday cottage with veranda, private garden & views across the pond and out to sea. It is set just 30 seconds from the seafront. Portholland has recently been declared a National Heritage Asset. The areas around Portholland are virtually unchanged for well over 100 years. This hamlet of Portholland where time seems to have stood still is a rarity in this day and age. At high tide Portholland has 2 separate coves but when the tide is low these coves are joined together by golden sand. Ideal for families Portholland is equidistant between St Austell and Truro and is a great base for exploring deeper into the intriguing Roseland Peninsula with a great choice of pubs and restaurants within a short drive. It is also particularly well placed as it receives the maximum amount of sunshine most of the year thus creating a balmy type climate that lasts until Autumn.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Everything was perfect. We even had sunshine! The cottage was wonderful and the area beautiful. Would recommend the coast walk to Portloe although hard work! Fowey/Polruan are also a must! Thank you - we cant wait to come back!
