    We were a group of 6 adults and 2 dogs and we really enjoyed staying at this comfy perfectly positioned cottage. A warm welcome awaited us as we found a bouquet of flowers and a delicious cake on arrival. As clearly stated in the terms and conditions I paid a cleaning charge of £15 per dog which is standard on booking accomadation . As a suggestion for the future you might consider this- I understand the need for a deposit because not all guests would necessarily leave the cottage as clean as when they arrived. But on other holidays I have booked elsewhere they report back to say if any of the deposit would be refunded after your stay. I always take care of the property as I would my own home and leave it clean and prepared for the cleaner. We often get positive feedback from company we have rented. Obviously I do not expect this on this occasion because that is not in your terms. Another suggestion would be to provide more tea towels (we only had 2) and 1 spare set of laundry if there are 6 people renting. I hope this is taken as positive feedback because I would emphaise how much we truly enjoyed staying at such a comfortable cottage and would love to book it again. Thanks Carole.

The property

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.

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.
