Cottage in Portloe Nr. Veryan, Roseland Peninsula, Cornwall, England - Set In Picturesque Village Location On Roseland Peninsula
About Fiona Coulter
I have let Cliff garden for twelve years now. We use the cottage as a family holiday home too so I have tried to make it really comfortable and good to stay in. I like to think of Cliff Garden as a home way from home and hope you will too.
Fiona Coulter purchased this Cottage in 2005
Why Fiona Coulter chose Portloe
Portloe is beautiful picturesque fishing village on the Roseland Peninsula. It has wonderful beaches and cliff walks. Local pubs and restaurants serve delicious cuisine. It is very peaceful yet you are able to travel to all the attractions of Cornwall quickly and easily. A bus service runs through the village to local areas which can be very handy. The cottage is actually situation on the South West Coat Path - perfect for walkers, and their four legged friends. The little harbour and beaches nearby are perfect for anglers.
What makes this Cottage unique
In the village there is the famous Lugger Hotel that serves great food - perfect for that glass of chilled wine and a crab sandwich and chips for lunch or an a la carte dinner in the evening. The friendly Ship Inn about 100metres away serves great pub food with freshly caught fish specials. The little harbour is ideal for swimming or paddling as well as watching the boats go in and out. Freshly caught crab and lobster is readily available. The house is on the South West Coast Path and so the walks along the cliffs are stunning. The award winning beaches of Carne and Pendower are a few minutes away as well as many others.

A wonderful holiday
There were four of us and two dogs in our party. The house exceeded our expectations, spacious, comfortable, well equipped and in a sublime location. The Garden is a hidden Gem - it goes on for ever and offers the most spectacular views over the village and the harbour. The walks from the cottage are wonderful and the nearby Carne Beach is perfect for dogs. A truly relaxing week in a beautiful house in a beautiful village in our favourite county in England. Thank you - we will be back!
Fiona has created a very comfortable environment which adds to the wonderful location and outlook of the cottage. Surrounding area is not as 'touristy' as many other locations in Cornwall. This is both idyllic (peace and quiet) and a little limiting regarding good pubs and cafes in the immediate vicinity. Highly recommended overall.
Perfect retreat - will be back!
My friends and I had the most wonderful stay at Cliff Garden, visiting beautiful quiet beaches, eating excellent food in local restaurants. The area has something to offer for all the family and the house is so well equipped and comfortable, we felt very at home. Will definitely be back as we hear that there is going to be a new kitchen and decoration before Christmas. Can't rate this place highly enough - Portloe is such a gem.
A really large and comfy house in a beautiful setting. The patios were amazing!
We spent one rainy day in the village, enjoying The Luggers across the street and The Ship Inn down the street. The second day we ventured west. A bit hard for us Americans to get comfortable with the narrow streets in and out of town, but that made for a nice secluded feeling in Portloe. We also enjoyed the wood stove.
Thank you for your lovely review, we are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay.
Hope you come back one day.
We had a wonderful week at Cliff Garden Cottage. Very comfortable and homely cottage in a great situation. Amazing views from the house and garden. Idea for touring around Cornwall, lots to see and do.
Thank you very much for taking the time to write such a kind review. We are making some improvements to the cottage - a new kitchen among other things. Can't wait to have you back to show you the upgrade.
Spacious and comfortable with close sea views
Comfy beds, comfy sitting places, lovely to look at and gorgeous views, well appointed and clean as could be - what more could you ask for?
Thank you so much for your kind words about Cliff Garden. The views never fail to impress our guests, it is such a relaxing place to be. I do hope you visit again soon.
The award winning beaches of Carne and Pendower are under 10 minutes drive away. There is plenty of parking at both in National Trust car parks with honesty boxes. There are lovely sands and rock pools and when the tide is out you can walk from one beach to the other. Above the beach is the Nare Hotel where you can sit and look out over the sea and enjoy coffee, lunches including crab sandwiches and chips and cream teas There are many more beaches about short drives away in both directions.
Not only is there the local village pub, The Ship, and The Lugger Hotel with its restaurant, but there is the Michelin starred Driftwood 15 minutes away. In the summer season the Hidden Hut, one of the best beach cafes in England less than 20 minutes. They have lovely fresh food and have lobster and paella nights - well worth a visit.
About a 7 minute drive from the cottage is the Da Bara Bakery where you can get brilliant bread, coffee and breakfasts to eat in or take away. We never visit without at least one trip here.
There is a bus service running right through the village for access to local surrounding areas.
