The adorable Beach Hill Cottage is located in the heart of the picturesque & unspoilt village of Portloe only yards from the harbour beach and is perfect for a couple or a small family all year round. From just outside your front door you can watch the comings & goings of the local crab & lobster fishermen as they launch their boats and land their catches daily. This is Cornwall as we all imagine, but rarely find these days.
Beach Hill Cottage is a beautifully converted former fisherman's cottage. It is a small cottage, but full of character and wonderfully presented by the Owners. It is an ideal all year round basis as it has a woodburning stove for cosy winter evenings. It is perfectly positioned for exploring the miles of coastal walks and only a short drive to the spectacular Carne beach. The cottage itself has a small but well fitted kitchen with a dining table & slate floor. The lounge is a really cosy room & full of character with a wood burning stove and beamed ceiling. There is a comfortable sofa and window seat. There are steep stairs leading up to the first floor bedrooms & bathroom.
Ground Floor: Open plan kitchen, dining area and lounge.
First Floor: Double bedroom, single room with truckle bed (extending to a double bed) and separate bathroom with shower & WC.

Portloe is considered by many to be the jewel in the crown of the Roseland peninsula and one of the prettiest villages in Cornwall. Its steep sided valleys 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". Portloe is an ideal place to stay on the Roseland Peninsula.
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.
