Property code: OC-T27649

A charming and quirky mid-terrace cottage in a prestigious hillside position less than 350 metres from Porthleven’s scenic harbour is perfect for a couple looking for a restful seaside holiday. The cottage enjoys far-reaching sea and coastal views stretching from the harbourside clock tower and pier over the golden sandy beach towards the rugged cliffs of Lizard Point. This lovely fishing village is home to many eateries and boutique shops huddled around the picturesque harbour.

This unique cottage is aptly named and is renowned for its compact size, making it one of the smallest homes in Cornwall, built in the gap between the surrounding houses. With great use of space and careful design, a lot has been packed into this little gem. Thick-painted stone walls and unusually shaped rooms add to the delightful characterful feel. Enter through the hallway and then into the narrowest point, into the kitchen and dining room, which includes everything you need for home-cooked meals. A compact shower room is to the rear and up some steps. A wooden, open-tread staircase leads to the cosy living room at the front, providing two comfortable armchairs, a Smart TV and views across rooftops towards the distant sea. To the rear is a double bedroom. Although this cottage lacks a garden, it compensates with a thoughtfully placed bench at the front providing a delightful spot for a morning coffee.

A little further afield is the maritime town of Falmouth (15.5 miles), home of the National Maritime Museum. A trip to St Michael’s Mount and the stunning beach at Marazion (8 miles) makes for a special day out. Nature lovers should head to the Cornish Seal Sanctuary at Gweek (9 miles) to learn more about the seals, otters, and penguins.
