An old fisherman's shed, this one bedroom cottage is right on the edge of Portwrinkle Beach. Inside there is one double bedroom with fitted cupboards, a bathroom with combined bath and shower, and then an open plan living room, kitchen/diner that has a large window looking out over the sea. There's a small garden with picnic table and parking space alongside, then a bench at the front gives guests somewhere to sit and watch the sun set over the water.

A delightful cottage in a beautiful location
Some people think Cornwall starts west of Looe, but it isn't so! We stayed at a small fisherman's cottage (completely updated) in the small town of Portwrinkle on the south east coast, just past Plymouth. The cottage was perfect for two people - lots of room, and very comfortable. We were fascinated with the view of the ocean out of the front window, and enjoyed watching the tides come and go (seals too!). If you are looking for a quiet place to stay, close to hiking and excursions near Plymouth, then this is a lovely spot. We always looked forward to returning "home" at the end of a long day.
comfortable in a slightly desolate setting
Avoid Plymouth and Loue. Be aware that right there at the cottage there is no phone coverage. You have to drive to the top of the hill above the hotel and try different spots. Do not attempt that drive near or "on the hour" as it is a long one lane road and a huge red bus hurtles down. Do not take the google maps shortcut, only come down from the top of the hill above the hotel. Then just keep going till you see it. Make doubly sure you receive the code for entry well before arriving - you may have to ask for it and you cannot once you get there. Hope this helps and good luck.
Thanks for your comments Brett - there is very limited telephone coverage at the property, but there is fibre optic broadband, so if future guests have a telephone that can handle internet calls it might be worth downloading an app to be able to make or receive them.
Great cottage for two by the sea
Blessed by excellent weather, our stay at Rocket House was fantastic. Reasonably well equipped cottage, clean and tidy. Mealtimes by the window over looking the sea, or even outside, enjoying the views. The little village of portwrinkle has two beaches, one right on the doorstep, offering something for everyone. Sunsets were awesome on a couple of nights. Also enjoyed the South West Coastal path, in either direction from the cottage, and further along the coast at Rame Head. More stunning views of coves and cliffs. A very enjoyable week
Stunning property and location
The photographs really don't do the cottage or views justice. We had an amazing time even though we were a little unlucky with the weather.
Lovely relaxed break
Cute little cottage right on the sea front. Perfect weekend break.
