Cove Cottage has the enviable location of being a stone's throw from the harbour in Portloe, and benefits from sea views, a terraced patio to the rear that looks down over the harbour and excellent, spacious, accommodation in this traditional fisherman's cottage.

Property Details

Cove Cottage is brilliantly located a stone's throw from the harbour and beach right in the heart of the quintessential Cornish fishing village of Portloe. The entrance level is open plan with a spacious lounge at one end and kitchen dining room at the other, an open fire to keep you warm in the winter and a sun trap of a terrace which is surprisingly private being this close to the harbour.

Portloe is one of those perfect little Cornish fishing villages, beautifully positioned around a stunning little cove and harbour. Like many such villages, smuggling played a large part in Portloe's history with many tales of cat and mouse games played between locals and the authorities! In 1824, the problem became so bad that Customs ordered the construction of a Watch House, boathouse and slipway in a vain attempt to deter the illicit trade.

Accommodation
Ground Floor: Back door is situated at this level and is approached through a narrow alleyway to the rear of the property it opens into a hallway with doors to a large twin bedroom, a wet room with shower WC and hand basin and stairs leading to:
First Floor: Large Open plan living / dining and small kitchen area, with fully fitted units and all facilities. The living room area has an open fire and flat screen TV, double aspect, with windows over-looking harbour and patio. The front door leads onto the patio / garden area. Stairs lead up to;
Second Floor: Master bedroom with 5' double bed, chest of drawers and window with views of the harbour. Family bathroom with bath with handheld shower, WC and hand basin. Second twin bedroom with storage and locked linen cupboard.
Exterior: Patio area with chairs and tables and secondary raised decked area with views to the harbour.

Facilities & Services
Heating is via electric night storage heaters. The kitchen has a range of equipment. There is an electric oven and hob, a microwave, toaster, kettle and fridge / freezer. The sitting room area has a flatscreen digital Smart TV & DVD player where programmes can be viewed through BBC iPlayer, ITVplayer, 4OD etc. Netflix is also available. PLEASE NOTE THERE IS NO LIVE TV. Catch up/on demand is through the WiFi only. There is a CD player. There is an iron & ironing board. WiFi is available at the property. There is a combined washing machine and tumble dryer on the ground floor.

Miscellaneous
Electricity, heating, bed linen & towels are all included but you will need to provide your own beach towels. Regrettably no smoking is allowed. This is a dog friendly property and a maximum of 2 dogs may stay at a small additional charge of £25 per week, please note that dogs are not to be left unattended in the property. Visitors are usually able to park opposite the Lugger Hotel above the slipway although there is not a designated space for the property however parking is available at the top of the village in the main car park.

Property Location


The Roseland Peninsula is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and forms one of the finest sections of Cornwall's South Coast. From Mevagissey to St Mawes and bordered by the Fal Estuary to the west, the Roseland Peninsula has been drawing visitors for years with its splendid coastline, unique gardens, historic villages and superb sailing waters. A truly magnificent part of Cornwall, the Roseland Peninsula is a wonderful place to spend a memorable holiday. With The Lost Gardens of Heligan and The Eden Project in one direction and Falmouth and the National Maritime Museum in the other the Roseland is brimming with places to visit and things to do.

Portloe is considered by many to be the jewel in the crown of the Roseland peninsula and one of the prettiest villages in Cornwall. The steep sided valley has meant that it has managed to escape development over the years and many buildings differ little from when they were built. Sir John Betjeman said of Portloe "One of the least spoiled and most impressive of Cornish fishing villages". Broom Parc, the country house setting (now a B&B) for the Camomile Lawn a 1992 TV drama is a short walk up the coast path.

It is wonderfully quiet and peaceful, yet it has a really good local pub & hotel. The village itself is only a short drive from the other villages such as St Mawes. The city of Truro is also within a 25 minute drive. The Lugger Hotel with its excellent restaurant is only a few steps away and the Ship Inn is a short walk. The New Inn at Veryan serves food. There is also the Portloe Tea Room nearby. There is no general store in Portloe, however there are shops at Veryan (1.4 miles) and a Londis store at Bessy Beneath (3 miles). Further pubs, shops & restaurants are also available in Tregony, Ruan Lanihorne, Portscatho & St Mawes.

Portscatho and its neighbouring village of Gerrans are located on the eastern coast of the Roseland Peninsula, Cornwall, overlooking the dramatic Gerrans Bay. A truly peaceful waterside village, Portscatho is a lovely place for a holiday. There are miles of coastal and countryside footpaths to explore, particularly along past Towan beach and out to St Anthony's Head. Portscatho was once a busy fishing harbour, but now it has become a haven for artists due to the striking light which is particularly good in the morning sun. More than anything, Portscatho is a relaxing place. The beaches such as Porthcurnick, Towan and Porthbeor are simply idyllic and these are only minutes from the village. With a superb local butchers shop, 2 great little pubs and a well-stocked local store, Portscatho and Gerrans are a lovely place to spend a holiday.

St Mawes Castle, built by Henry VIII in the 16th century sits on Castle Point at the mouth of the River Fal. At the top of St Mawes, Lamorran Gardens house a wonderful collection of tropical plants with lovely views down into the Harbour. St Just-in-Roseland has arguably the most photographed church in Cornwall. The 13th century church sits quietly tucked away on the edge of the creek. The Veryan Roundhouses are a must see, on the way to Nare Head, where you will find the most spectacular views of Gerrans Bay. The little village of Portloe nestles in lovely valley and is one of Cornwall's quintessential spots. Portscatho has a number of art galleries and many artists find the light in this harbour village inspires much of their work. The Roseland Inn at Philleigh is a 16th century pub just waiting for you to visit, as is the newly refurbished Smugglers Cottage at Tolverne, perfect for that afternoon Cornish Cream Tea, now run by Tregothnan Estate home to the UK's first tea plantation. The most popular thing to do though on the Roseland is simply to walk and enjoy some of Cornwall's most beautiful coastline.

Events on the Roseland reach fever point in August when sailing regattas, carnivals, fayres and fun days take place all over the Roseland and the waters of the Carrick Roads. It is a memorable place for many people who return year after year to enjoy the magic of this beautiful place.

A lovely summer cottage in Portloe

We enjoyed a two week stay in this lovely cottage in Portloe. The location is exceptional and the cottage offers all you need for a family of four. The Lugger Inn next door serves spectacular food and the costal path is right on your door step. We can highly recommend this cottage and would be happy to return.

A perfect cottage in a perfect Cornish village

We spent the last two weeks of June at Cove Cottage at Portloe - what a wonderful place and the Cottage was perfect for us. Three of us one week and six the second week, quite comfortable and well appointed. Great views over the harbour, and easy access to the Coastal Path. The managers Alan and Melanie were accessible, responded to us promptly, and gave us good tips as to what to do and where to eat in the area. We were lucky enough to be in Portloe when it was Open Gardens - 10 of the villageA?s houses opened their gardens for public viewing - despite the rain it was one of the highlights of the fortnight. Dinner at the Ship Inn was great, as was the Lugger (although considerably more expensive). We were able to park on the harbour ramp most days, and the other days used the public car park at the top of the village. A perfect place to stay in a perfect Cornish village - thoroughly recommended!! Tim and Linda Adelaide

Family get together

We spent a wonderful week at cove cottage with my grown up sons their partners and 2 dogs. Everyone enjoyed the stunning position and recharged some well worn batteries. For me the view from my bedroom window of the ever changing sea colours, and the sound of the waves on the rocks was truly enchanting.The only downside was we had to leave.

Had a great holiday at Cove cottage. Its location is amazing and the views are stunning . The Cottage is very well equipped and it has a very cosy ambience.

No WiFi

Unfortunately on the occasion I stayed in the cottage there was no WiFi and no land looking ne and not TV.... reading the. Is it or book it looks like this is not the first time this has happened to customers... The weather was awful so we had days out n the wet and really missed snuggling up in the cottage in the evening watching a good film.. Communication around getting the fault fixed was not good. Also had a handy,an turn up to fix a fan in the bathroom whilst we were there...which we didnA?t mind but it just seemed like we picked the wrong week to be there. We came home early and no ne seemed to be aware of this as the calls we were promised as follow up we never received This cottage is not just a base itA?s a comfy pretty well kept place to be normally....

A lovely place to stay

We really enjoyed our week in Cove Cottage. The location is superb, right by the harbour in the small village of Portloe. It is out of the front door and side gate and you are on the South West coastal path. You can walk east or west and you'll have magnificent views. As a couple we were very comfortable, but I did think that three couples would think that one couple was getting the best bedroom. As a family you have to be aware that two bedrooms are upstairs and one is on the lower ground floor. We appreciated the shortbread and a very nice bottle of wine that welcomed us. As the brochure tells you be aware that you can not always get parked outside the cottage but may have to use the village car park. It is a bit of a walk but you can enjoy the sea views as you go. There was only one thing that disappointed and that was the cleanliness of the windows. When we returned on the last evening there was something different, we could see out of the windows and really enjoy the view. I know that in that location the windows would get dirty but the poor view was disappointing.

Really cosy cottage. Bed was amazing so comfortable. Good quality bed linen and towels. The only thing was the carpet/rug in lounge. A hazard. We turned it around. It was curling up and fraying. The caretaker phoned to check if we were warm enough and we did tell him. It was mentioned previously in visitors book. Needs a new one.

Lovely, relaxing stay.. Right by the sea..

We had a wonderful stay at Cove Cottage.. It's light & airy, a well fitted kitchen & comfortable beds with two lovely outside spaces for eating which we were able to use (despite the Cornish weather!). The best thing is the location, right on the Harbour with beautiful & dramatic walks along the coast path in both directions... Local pub very welcoming & fabulous meal at The Lugger hotel next door... All perfect for a special birthday weekend away..

Comfortable, stylish cottage in a pretty, if remote, setting close to the cliffs and harbour.

We enjoyed our week with the two small dogs in Cove Cottage, comfortable, stylish and just a few feet from the cliffs, harbour and The Lugger Hotel. Portloe itself lacked amenities such as a village shop and there was only intermittent mobile 'phone and TV reception. A small omission was that no toilet roll was provided in the bathroom. Also there was no large towel rail for the bath towels - there was a small heated towel rail and hook behind the door. The cottage was very close to the upmarket Lugger Hotel which served expensive but value-for-money food. We found it a good base for touring this part of Cornwall - if you don't mind the single-track roads.

Gorgeous cottage, well set out in a lovely location.

I chose Cove Cottage from the site based on the photos and location. I was delighted with my choice on arrival. The communication beforehand and arrival instructions were clear and easy to follow. The cottage is gorgeous, nicely appointed with lots of pretty features. Parking was fine. I couldn't park outside everyday but was able to park outside the church at the top of the road. The cottage is near the slipway so the sound of the water was so nice to fall asleep to. Lovely view from the bedroom window. There is a raised deck area which was really pleasant to sit and enjoy a glass of wine. I stayed with my dog. The outside area was gated, making it into a perfect enclosed space. I would definitely recommend Cove Cottage and will book again for next year.

A beautiful quiet getaway

We wanted a really relaxing holiday in lovely surroundings and that is exactly what we got. The cottage is very homely and cosy, and all very comfortable, the main bedroom had the lovely view of the harbour to wake up to through a small window, and we could here the sea at nightime with the window open. Everything worked very well, especially the dishwasher! The only slight downside was that the rear patio is also access to the neighbouring properties, and as we had our dog with us, we had to make sure both gates were closed, but there were very few people using the right of way to the other couple of houses adjacent, and they were all very friendly and helpful. Lovely cottage and location with very friendly locals and other holiday makers. Would certainly return thankyou.
