Cottage
Cliff cottage is an original fisherman's cottage built at the same time as the lime kilns on the beach. Recently modernised, it remains full of character with beamed ceilings, ingle-nook fireplace and a woodburning stove. It's position on the coast road between East and West Portholland ensures spectacular sea views from every room and a gem of a garden perched on the headland looks out over the beaches and Veryan Bay. The garden is also an ideal spot for watching gannets diving in the bay, fulmars nesting in the cliff and for stargazing after dark. It is a lovely hideaway, which sleeps 4 and is ideal for a relaxed family beach holiday, bird watching or walking. The South West Coast path passes outside the property.

West Portholland beach is literally a stone's throw away and East Porthollad beach a 2 minute walk. At low tide the 2 sandy beaches become one and it is possible to walk between them over the sand. This cosy property is in an area of outstanding natural beauty. The peaceful area ensures a restful holiday although many activities and places to visit are within easy reach. The Eden Project and The lost Gardens of Heligan are less than 10 miles away and there are many National Trust gardens within an easy drive.More

Excellent cottage in superb coastal and rural location.
Beautiful cottage that has been lovingly and tastefully modernised with everything you could need to make a comfortable and cozy stay. The bed and linen are of good quality as are all the furnishings and equipment. The utility area just inside the second entrance is a bonus if you are coming in with a wet dog or wet weather hiking gear or summer beach kit. The cottage has two tiny gardens, both elevated on the cliff providing views across the beach or Gerrans Bay. The cottage is literally a stones throw to the beach and the south west coast path which passes the door whilst just a there are plenty of countryside walks from the cottage. No need to get the car out!! We will be back again many times! Thank you to Danny and Jo.

Perfect retreat
Perfect! This cottage at Portholland never fails to deliver. The ideal place for peace, relaxation and ‘off-loading’. Very well equipped with everything required for self catering. Stunning coastline with fabulous walks, then back to sit in front of the huge log burner and watch through the window as the waves crash on the rocks. Portholland played a very big part in my growing up and brings back many happy memories. 1 Cliff Cottage is the perfect place for recharging. Can’t wait for the next time! Thank you

Lovely cottage in beautiful location
We love this cottage and its quiet and peaceful and unspoilt location minutes from the beach. There are plenty of places to visit in the area not too far away like Caerhayes, the Eden project, or Trellisick (National Trust ) . The cottage itself has fabulous views of the sea from the bedroom windows, is always spotlessly clean and has all you need for your stay, There are also a couple of little garden areas belonging to the cottage with seats which we also enjoyed, We have returned quite a few times now over the years in the off-season months, and it’s become special to us.

A charming little cottage in a wonderful, peaceful location.
The cottage sits overlooking the sea in West Portholland, a quiet place away from the hustle and bustle of life. At low tide you can walk along the beach to East Portholland, with it’s clean sandy beach and friendly cafe. You can easily walk along the road to this location too. The cottage a itself is clean, cosy and well equipped. I loved being able to lie in bed and hear the sea. The cottage has a small garden with a table and benches, perfect for eating overlooking the sea, or just relaxing. I was wowed by the beautiful clear skies at night and enjoyed picking out constellations. During our week’s stay we enjoyed some lovely walks and a delicious lunch at the cafe at Towan beach. Mostly we enjoyed the peace, quiet and I have to say the perfect weather. I would definitely recommend this cottage and hope to be able to stay there again myself.

A fabulous week in Cornwall
We spent a wonderful week in the middle of July at this beautiful cottage on the Cornish coast. What a hidden gem it is ! The cove is just below Cliff Cottage and we laid in bed listening to the waves tumbling onto the beach. There are lovely walks and amenities are not too far away. The cottage itself has been very tastefully renovated to a high standard whilst retaining its original features. Everything you will need is there. Outside there is a pretty little garden and a picnic table area which overlooks the cove below. We highly recommend 1, Cliff Cottage and look forward very much to our next opportunity to visit.

Cliff Cottage - the place to return to.
We arrived tired but left rested and refreshed. A very comfortable cottage overlooking a peaceful, picturesque sandy bay. Very well equipped with private garden and easy parking. The lovely cliff walks along the coast led to other nice beaches and the nearby villages. Easy to find but hard to leave - we are looking forward to getting back to Cliff Cottage soon.

Lovely little cottage with sea views and a garden overlooking the beach.
We had a wonderful week at 1 Cliff Cottage visiting the Eden Project, the Lost Gardens of Heligan and several National Trust sites and beaches. There were lots of coffee shops selling good coffee and homemade cakes! The walks were beautiful and varied. We can recommend booking this well equipped and comfortable cottage.

Cosy quiet cottage
We’ve just returned from a week in Cliff cottage. It was very comfortable, had everything we needed (including board games!) and is in a great location. We walked along the coastal path to Portloe, Caerhays and Gorran Haven and spent the mornings / afternoons on the beach - perfect!

If you're looking for a quiet holiday with that get away feel, this is it.
This was my trip down memory lane, as I spent most of my childhood holidays in the next door cottage in the late 50s, early 60s. The Caerhays Estate has been very careful not to commercialise the area. Apart from many properties being holiday lets rather than residents it hasn't changed. It is the ideal place to walk, relax and swim. Beach at low tide is sand when it just about joins across to its sister beach at East Portholland. Mostly fishing people, paddle boarders and dog owners use the beach, so very quiet. We loved it.
