This delightful property in Porthcothan, a hidden gem on Cornwall's stunning coastline, is ideal for couples seeking a tranquil seaside retreat. This charming village boasts pristine beaches, like Porthcothan Bay (0.5 miles), providing the perfect backdrop for lazy days sunbathing, swimming and beachcombing. But the Cornish charm doesn't stop there. A short drive to Padstow, just 5 miles away, offers a picturesque, bustling harbour, restaurants renowned for their seafood menus and the opportunity to take a leisurely cycle ride on the Camel Trail.

Step into this attractive open-plan living space, perfect for socialising or relaxing together. There is a cosy sofa and armchair in the living area where you can unwind and enjoy the views through the glass doors or watch a favourite film on the Smart TV. The kitchen has everything you need to whip up a romantic dinner or lazy brunch. The underfloor heating ensures you stay snug and warm, whatever the weather, making this a great space all year. Walk through the living space to find a double bedroom with a coastal theme and a bathroom with a rain shower over the bath and a WC. Outside, you can enjoy a stunning, spacious area to sip on your morning coffee, relax or dine alfresco while watching the sunset over the nearby cliffs.

There are a variety of local attractions to suit all tastes. Trevone Bay and the breathtaking viewpoint at Gunver Head are less than 5 miles away. The National Trust property Carnewas at Bedruthan (3 miles) is well worth a visit to explore the beach and trails.
