Property code: OC-MERRIL

Traditional features are complemented by a contemporary touch within the thick granite walls of this pretty coastal cottage. Pet-friendly and with a gorgeous courtyard garden, it’s ideal for friends or a family of four who’d enjoy exploring the harbour town of Porthleven.

Located on a quiet residential road, less than 0.5 miles from the harbour, this beautiful holiday bolthole is full of original features yet completely updated to include all the must-haves for a fuss-free stay. Step inside and you’ll find a spacious living room complete with a Smart TV, Blu-ray DVD and wood burner; there’s underfloor heating throughout for all-year comfort. The striking slate flooring and exposed structural beams feature in the kitchen too, where a sleek wood-and-white theme complements; there’s a central dining suite where everyone can gather during meal prep as well as over dinner. Upstairs, find a stylish first-floor bathroom, and two calming bedrooms – one with a king-size bed, the other with twins, and each with its own TV. A pretty cottage garden sets the property away from the road to the front, while at the rear there’s an enclosed courtyard-style garden with outdoor furniture, a mix of paved and gravelled areas and a BBQ.

At the edge of the Lizard Peninsula, Porthleven is a quintessential Cornish fishing port, with welcoming shops, pubs, restaurants and galleries gathered close to its ancient harbour. Food-lovers can enjoy a great choice of freshly caught fish and seafood here, while the beach has several rock pools to explore at low tide. Porthleven is on the vast Mount’s Bay, with the mesmerising St Michael’s Mount just off the shoreline of Marazion, 9 miles away. In the other direction, one of Cornwall’s most iconic landmarks – Lizard Point – is 14 miles away.
