An adorable cottage with sensational coastal views in picturesque Portloe on the Roseland Peninsula.
Occupying prime position above the turquoise waters of the harbour, Harbour Cottage could hardly be closer to the sea.
Inside the cottage offers accommodation with a chic nautical feel and there are incredible sea views from every room.
On the ground floor is a snug stylish sitting room, separate dining room and a little kitchen.
All three first floor bedrooms are spacious and flooded with sunlight with an en-suite shower room to the master bedroom and a family bathroom.
Pretty fabrics and period pieces blend effortlessly throughout.
Few experiences are more pleasurable than sitting on the wide sun terrace that runs with width of the cottage and watching the activity of the harbour below, be it crashing with waves or still as a mill pond.
Children will love to play in the sheltered cove which has a small sandy beach and rock pools at low tide creating a natural playground for swimmers and snorkelers.
Portloe sits on the eastern side of the Roseland Peninsula; with a Mediterranean feel there are pretty coves, quiet sandy beaches and hidden creeks to explore.
Once a busy fishing port and smugglers haunt, the village is now a favourite with film and television producers.
Working fishing boats still depart daily to catch crab and lobster which are served at the upmarket Lugger Hotel (with restaurant and a spa) at the top of the slip, providing the perfect alternative to barbecuing on the terrace.
There is also a pub in the village offering good local fayre whilst basic provisions can be bought at the nearby Veryan Stores.
Harbour Cottage offers the picture perfect coastal break by the sea.
