The property

Hillside is an exquisite Georgian cottage sitting in the heart of the quaint hamlet of Portloe, once described by Sir John Betjeman as: One of the least spoiled and most impressive of Cornish fishing villages.

As soon as you open the stable door, you will be charmed by the tastefully designed interior and with some of Cornwall's most popular attractions on your doorstep, you can holiday in style in this three-bedroom chic getaway.

The living areas are packed with period features, stripped floorboards, wooden shutters, historic Cornish clome ovens all dominated by a large inglenook fireplace.

A comfy armchair and footstool provide the perfect environment to stream your favourite music while you read by the glowing woodburning stove.

The comfort continues across the hallway with a deep corner sofa facing a fireplace and is a great place to curl up and relax while watching your favourite shows on the FreeSat TV, including Netflix.

A prized feature of this Georgian gem is the fabulous bespoke kitchen bursting with style and character, including the Smeg range cooker, plus an array of first-class appliances, allowing you to rustle up your locally sourced meals – perhaps using a lobster recipe from the nearby Hidden Hut’s cookbook.

Spend a day discovering the secret beauty of the renowned South West Coast Path, then return to rest in a neutrally decorated bedroom.

Choose from a super-king-size, a king-size or a twin bedded room to recharge your batteries.

The upstairs family bathroom and down stairs shower room, featuring all white suites, complete the accommodation.

A favorite of guests is the view from the front, you can sit on the roadside bench and sip your morning coffee looking down to the harbour and the ever-changing sea beyond.

Alternatively enjoy beers and alfresco dinners on the private rear terrace which is reached by quite steep steps.

Portloe's fine food pub is right next door and is perfect for those who don't fancy cooking one evening.

Step from your glorious holiday home into the Ship Inn and savour freshly cooked local meals and St Austell ales of the highest quality.

Portloe is often described as 'the jewel in the crown' of the Roseland Peninsula - a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

When the rest of Cornwall is crowded, this little known region really is a haven from the holiday hustle and bustle.

A network of creeks and steep river valleys is surrounded by stunning cliffs, National Trust headlands and coastal walks along some of Cornwall’s 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 Caerhays Castle, lake and beach.

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.
