Ocean View occupies a wonderful, elevated, south facing position in the picturesque fishing village of Portloe, with magical views over the harbour and out to sea.

Property Details

Ocean View is the perfect Cornish cottage in a beautiful fishing village. Sit in full sun on the terrace to the front of the property with a good read or the morning papers. You can relax in the light filled "conservatory" dining area of the kitchen and watch the world go by with a morning cup of coffee or glass of wine later in the day.

Portloe is one of those quintessential 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.

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.

Loved the location!

Beautifully located house overviewing the bay of Portloe. Very calm and relaxing! The house and the terrific views are exactly like on the photos. Portloe is a nice little village, pub and public parking are nearby and the next (and only) shop is just a 10 minutes drive away. DonA?t miss to play table-tennis in the church on first Monday of the month! Unfortunately we found the house not well cleaned with a lot of dead flies and spider webs. The number of glasses, pots and plates were limited and the overall kitchen equipment was very basic. And so was the terrace furniture which was just for 2 people. The so-called welcome package was a small bottle of milk, some crackers and an open bag of potatoes. The property Manager never showed up. We felt that the service and the equipment was not adequate for the money we paid but we loved the location, the view and the village!

third stay at Ocean View

Portloe is a beautiful Cornish village that is largely unspoilt.Ocean View is ideally situated for exploring the coastal path. Although there was a table on the patio there were no chairs to sit on.Maybe they were in the outside storeroom that we were unable to access. It appears that the cottage is up for sale so this could well be our last visit.

A Cornish Cottage

Ocean View is a quaint cottage but its appeal is limited to those under 80 without hip or knee problems.as both the outside and inside stairs are quite steep. The two leather settees were very comfortable so much so that having sunk into them it was hilarious to watch this elderly couple trying o get to their feet.! Overweight people would have to sleep in the twin bedroom as the gap between the double bed and wall is very small. The photo of the patio is a little misleading as it doesn't show that it overlooks the road and houses, but the view is to die for. Parking is a bit of a problem as it is a uphill walk to the car park. Ocean View is nicely equipped if you are self catering but be aware The Ship Inn lunchtime menu is VERY limited and the staff not particularly friendly

Ocean View, Portloe

Lovely cottage in a fantastic location. It was very warm and cosy. Conservatory/dining area in the kitchen had fantastic views over the sea. Lounge was very comfortable. The only criticisms are that the mattress and duvet on the double bed need replacing - they are a bit tired as are the tin opener and the potato peeler! Having said this we had a great time and would definitely stay in this cottage again.

Ocean View Portloe

Ocean View exceeded our expectations: the view of the sea from the terrace and most of the rooms was extraordinary - one morning we were lucky enough to see a school of dolphins swimming out in the bay. The house had everything we needed, and we very much appreciated the welcome pack of goodies. Portloe is a gem - when we stayed at the beginning of July it wasn't busy but we had excellent weather. The coastal paths couldn't be nearer, and the views from them were outstanding. Recommendations: The Ship Inn; the mackerel fishing trip from St Mawes mentioned in the Roseland information pack; the walk round St Anthony Head. One small point - we would have appreciated a chair or two in the bedroom.

Half term stay

I stayed in ocean View with my mother in law and my dog. The views are amazing and after a day's travelling round Cornwall it was good to come back to the cottage, very welcoming and warm. Lots of places to visit around the area and great walks for dogs.

Cosy

A cosy little cottage looking out to see with the basics provided for. The only improvement I would make would be the double bed, pillows and duvet which were not comfortable at all. Great location for running, walking and exploring with a lovely local pub.

Ocean view Portloe

Very peaceful location with fantastic views and coastal walks from the doorstep. Cottage clean and well equipped with patio area to sit out on and watch the comings and goings from the small harbour.sea view from all windows and it was lovely going to sleep and waking up to the sound of the waves. Asda delivered our weekly shop which was handy but local hotel and pub serving food if required.

Superb location, pretty well-equipped cottage

Ocean View is a pretty cottage with a superb location and stunning views, particularly from the pretty terrace. We have stayed in the cottage two or three times previously and everything was just as lovely as we remembered. Well equipped, bright airy kitchen and comfortable beds. Small petty points would include not enough place mats for the table, could do with a tray to carry things outside and the bathroom could really do with a refresh - not being able to open the window is contributing to the dampness. Many thanks.

Husbands 60th birhday break.

We booked ocean view to celebrate my husbands 60th birthday and it proved to be the most perfect place to be. The views are truly wonderful and exactly as advertised. The house itself was very clean, comfortable and well equiped and perfectly situated in Portloe, a delightfully quiet and charming place ideally placed for excellent coastal walks. The welcome card, biscuits and wine left by the caretakers was most appreciated and a lovely touch. The house was also warm and cosy and felt very welcoming. We were absolutely delighted by the beauty and tranquility of the roseland peninsular, no wonder its an area of outstanding natural beauty. We cannot reccomend it highly enough and will certainly return.

ocean views had the wow factor

wow!!!!! breath taking views the house was amazing, local to all areas we explored as much as time allowed we had a few hiccups with the oven however on calling the caretaker he came out and sorted for us. I was a little disappointed with the cleanliness and having to wash kitchen plates glasses pans etc was not ideal, broken tile in the bathroom which I reported to the caretaker. It would be nice to have the lights left on for arrivals as no outside lighting nor street lights we used our mobile phones. Apart from that our stay was fantastic, open fireplace was cosy in the evenings we where never cold heating was on 24hrs. memories made bringing in the new year in this fantastic house and place all teenagers in my family loved it and would love to come back, a truly amazing place to stay and visit
