The property

Hillside, an exquisite Georgian terraced cottage, sits in the heart of the quaint hamlet of Portloe -- described by Sir John Betjeman as "One of the least spoiled and most impressive of Cornish fishing villages".

With a pristine, tasteful interior and some of Cornwall's most popular attractions close by, holiday in style here at this three-bedroom getaway.

Feel charmed upon arrival.

The living areas are packed with period features from wooden floorboards and window shutters, to historic terracotta ovens and a large inglenook fireplace.

The sitting room benefits from an enticing fireplace and a comfortable corner sofa to curl up and relax on while watching TV.

The nearby dining room boasts a wood burner.

An adjacent armchair provides the perfect spot to sit and read a book with your feet up.

Also, on the ground floor, you will find a fabulous bespoke kitchen bursting with style and character, offering a stunning range cooker and an array of first-class appliances for you to rustle up your home-cooked meals.

After a day exploring the wonders of the renowned South West Coast Path, return to your neutrally decorated bedroom; either a super-king-size, a king-size or a twin bedroom to recharge your batteries before another fun-packed adventure.

Completing the accommodation in luxurious style are the family bathroom and a shower room, boasting lavish all-white suits and sumptuous wooden wall panelling to add a real touch of class to your stay.

Hillside's excellence continues to its exterior; you can either sit on the bench at the front of the cottage with your morning coffee looking out to the harbour and sea beyond, or enjoy a more private, relaxed time on the terrace to the rear.

Portloe's fine food pub sits conveniently next door, so you can step from your glorious holiday home into The Ship Inn and enjoy meals and drink of the highest quality.

This quaint fishing village also offers the choice of another popular dining spot -- the famous 17th Century boutique Lugger Hotel and Spa, right on the harbour.

Portloe sits in the heart of the Roseland Peninsula with its fantastic cliff top walks and world famous beaches.A few miles away are the award-winning Lost Gardens of Heligan, the renowned Eden Project featuring the largest indoor rainforest in the world and the unique seaside, Caerhays Castle and grounds.

Further afield are many stunning National Trust gardens and the iconic Idle Rocks and Tresanton Hotels in St Mawes.

It is no surprise that because of its stunning coastal beauty, Portloe has been the location for numerous film shoots -- including About Time, Treasure Island, Crooks in Cloisters and TV's The Camomile Lawn.

A heart-warming getaway for friends, family and couples alike to enjoy.

About the location


Truro 12 miles; St. Austell 13 miles; Newquay 20 miles

Often described as 'the jewel in the crown of the Roseland Peninsula', and rightfully so. Portloe is a very pretty, picturesque coastal village well-known for its fishing and walking opportunities. It boasts a delightful harbour with 3 working boats that go out to catch crab and lobster. Portloe was the filming location for a number of different films and TV series in the 20th century including the comedy series 'Wild West', featuring Dawn French and Catherine Tate. It is a small village with not much in terms of amenities, however it does have a very highly-rated food pub as well as a the Lugger Hotel with similarly positive reviews. Portloe proves itself to be a fantastic base for exploring some of Cornwall's most beautiful places. Truro, St. Austell and Newquay are all within easy reach, all with a fantastic choice of amenities and things to do. All three are well worth the visit whilst you're in this part of the country.
