A former coastguard cottage with stunning sea views and gardens. Wake to the sound of the sea, located next to the South West Coast Path, perfect to explore the attractions and fishing villages that hug the south Cornish coast.

There are few better places to watch the sun come up than at this delightful former coastguard's cottage in Portwrinkle. With the sounds of the sea below and a whole host of pretty coves and beaches to discover nearby, this coastal retreat will whisk you away from the stresses of daily life in no time at all. Explore the coast, pick up some freshly-caught seafood, and head back as the sun goes down.

 

The traditional porch entrance to the cottage takes you through to a cosy lounge with a warming open fire, the perfect place to come back to after a bracing winter walk. Seaside touches and beachy tones featured throughout the cottage reflect the stunning ocean views, and the bright kitchen offers a vintage vibe. Watch the sunset from the tiered garden, boasting panoramic sea views; the perfect end to any day.

 

Walk the South West Coast Path just behind the house along to the village and beach of Downderry, just over 3 miles away, or join it at the 18-hole Whitsand Bay Golf Club, half a mile from the cottage. After 3 miles, you will come to the sheltered sands of Tregantle Beach, overlooked by its historic fort. Portwrinkle also offers two beaches itself if you prefer to stay closer to home, one just 50 metres away. The charming harbours of Looe (8 miles) and Polperro (13 miles) are a great day out by car.

Lovely cottage in a beautiful location. The cottage has everything (and more) you could need. Rose, the owner, greeted us on arrival and was very welcoming and helpful. I do feel it should be noted that the cottage is accessed via a steep hill. If you are unable to park in the allocated parking space it is a good walk from the car park. Some guestsRead more would not manage this. Hide

A comfortable, clean, perfect cottage for two in an idyllic location with the most helpful and attentive owners. Tucked away in a quiet spot with wonderful sea views and a short walk to pretty swimming spots on a dog free beach (in summer).

The coastguard cottage was stunning; warm and cosy despite going just after Storm Dennis! Incredible views over the water from the elevated garden, living room and bedroom. You can lose hours just watching the tide come in and out over the harbour. Amazing walks, an excellent choice if you need peace and quiet and love the coast. I was travelling aRead morelone and the owner of the property met me there and was so welcoming and kind, making sure I had everything I needed. She thought of everything. Hide

Location

Map
Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

North Cornwall

Embark on clifftop wanderings along the South West Coast Path to discover ancient myths and legends; King Arthur at Tintagel Castle, or the giant at the Bedruthan Steps. Surfers flock here to ride the famous swell that carved the dramatic coastline, and Bude and Newquay are havens for the sport. From sandy bays and beaches to the seafood delights of Padstow or thrills of Camel Creek Adventure Park, North Cornwall is brimming with things to do; trails to trek, cream teas to gobble, and adventure to be had.

West Cornwall

Let the history, romance and raw beauty of West Cornwall whisk you through time, into rocky coves and along sweeping sands to Land’s End where the UK slips into the Atlantic. Discover an oasis of flora owed to the rare geology of the Lizard peninsula. You can kayak around Godrevy Island, wander the galleries of St Ives, catch a performance at the open-air Minack Theatre, and still make it to Marazion for dinner: St Michael’s Mount makes the ultimate backdrop.

South Cornwall

Tucked away from the swell of the Atlantic pretty fishing harbours sleep, and lush carpets of greenery roll up to craggy cliffs. Discover the fishing and smuggling history in Kingsand and Cawsand, or walk the South West Coast Path from Fowey to the tiny tidal beach at Readymoney Cove. Sample local ales in St Austell before visiting Charlestown’s tall ships, the enchantments of the Eden Project, or The Lost Gardens of Heligan. From vibrant towns to secret beaches and exhilarating days out, the south has it all.
