Property code: OC-FAIRVI

Enjoy a couple’s trip to this decadent property on the Cornish coast. Situated in the charming fishing town of Porthleven, you’ll have access to some truly wonderful places whilst staying in style with your partner, two friends and, if you choose, two canine companions.

This holiday home is set over three levels. On the ground floor you’ll see a well-equipped kitchen, so prepare a delicious drink from the coffee machine and then enjoy it in the lounge/diner. To increase the cosy feeling, light a fire in the wood burner and curl up on the comfortable sofa. Head to the first floor to see the two double bedrooms, each simply decorated and perfectly restful. There’s also a bathroom with a wonderfully deep bath for long, relaxing soaks, or try the walk-in shower. Continue to the loft to find a snug overlooking the bay, complete with two floor-to-ceiling windows, an artificial fire, blankets for cuddling and books to amuse. Head outside for the enclosed courtyard with a BBQ, seating area and table for summer evenings.

Porthleven has retained its traditional fishing trade, so make your way into town (about 0.5 miles) to taste the fresh catch. You can tour with the fishing boats, or try other water sports including kayaking, coasteering and paddleboarding. If you’re a fan of aquatic wildlife, schedule a trip to the Cornish Seal Sanctuary (8 miles) for sea lions, penguins, otters and seals, or spot them roaming in the National Trust Godrevy (14.5 miles). Godrevy is also a prime place for surfing and walking, where you may find remnants of a stone age settlement. End your trip with a day in Penwith Heritage Coast, which has castle ruins, wild ponies and… film crews? This beautiful place was the setting for Poldark!

We had a lovely stay at Fair View in December. Location is great - close to the town but with a lovely sea and beach view from the attic room (our favourite room). You can hear the waves crashing from the bedroom, and a lovely bench out front to sit and people watch. There is no parking but we were able to easily park just behind the house after wRead moree off loaded our luggage. Lovely and cosy on ground floor, bedrooms luxurious and as mentioned - the attic room a perfect place to relax whilst watching the sea, surfers and wildlife in the warm and dry. We will definitely return again. Hide
