This place is really all about the location and views. Very conveniently situated for Porthleven which is an easy 15 minute walk away along the coastal path. Breakfast is very good and is available at a civilised time (when on holiday) while the service cannot be faulted although we didn't find our host particularly engaging. We stayed in room 2... More

Stayed here while walking the south west coast path. It is actually on the path in the middle of nowhere and yet a short walk into Porthleven. We booked late so did not get the full sea view from our room but the room was spacious. The view from the front of the house is outstanding. Breakfast was excellent. Recommended

We chose one of the biggest rooms (no. 2) which had great seaviews from both the room and bathroom! A perfect stay after a long days walk. You can sit and enjoy the views in comfortable chairs, and enjoy the soothing sound of the sea at night. Clean, big and comfortable bed. Good choices for breakfast; full english, salmon and... More

Beacon Crag is a ten minute walk down the Cliff Path to Porthleven which we used, we were told that a Taxi back would cost £5 but we never tried the service? Samanthia the Landlady is friendly and welcoming and responsible for the excellent breakfast that is served between 9 and 10am. We had Room 4 which was more than... More

This is worth every penny just for the spectacular location. The views are magnificent, the walk to the town and pubs and restaurants is convenenient and eliminates drinking and driving and Portleven parking problems. As we were staying in June, the need for a torch was not required but I agree with previous review, one would be needed when it... More

Sam is a great hostess and runs the Beacon Crag with great care and consideration. The location is great. The rooms are well appointed and the bed was very comfortable. Well pressed linen and great big towels were much appreciated. We had lots of hot water for showers at all times of day. Breakfast options are generous. The house sits... More

Room exactly as promised. Large double-bed, and splendid view from window. Brilliant cooked breakfasts. Everything very clean. As long as you are reasonably mobile, and do the walks in daylight, the 10 min stroll into the village pubs is a great way to end each day.

This has to be one of the best sea view locations on the Cornish Coast. The house is perched high on cliff with glorious views up and down the coast. It has a slightly isolated position away from the town, but it is an easy walk via the footpath to find an array of pubs and restaurants. Our room was... More

Magnificent views from every aspect, and friendly, helpful owners. Samantha's husband was a godsend when we found something amiss with our laptop, which we thought would require seeing to by a computer techie, but the two men nutted it out together - many thanks! :)

Lovely room, perfect location and a swift and easy walk into Porthleven. Brilliant coastal and inland walks (NT Penrose estate) on the doorstep. Really good breakfast and very friendly owner. Will definitely be back.
