The Retreat is a pet friendly stone cottage right in front of the beach in Porthleven, discreetly tucked away in a courtyard behind Mott House.
Outside you can sit and eat in the sheltered courtyard or climb the steps up the cliff to the garden with picnic table and fabulous sea views. Or grab a picnic basket and step right onto the beach, a great place for the kids and pets.
Porthleven is a great holiday destination for families, with restaurants, shops, pubs and cafes all in walking distance.

Lovely break, weather pretty good. Our first visit to Porthleven and loved it. Great cottage. For young children would recommend a trip to 'Flambards.' Also enjoyed the Seal Sanctuary. It is a very picturesque setting. Lovely sandy beach at Gwithian or Hayle with good restaurant. Also at Harbour Inn and Atlantic. Both good for kids!Mitch and Judith
We thought the Retreat was perfect, tucked away out of sight, far more spacious than it looks (it's a bit of a tardis!) and everything that we could possibly want. It really was the best way to start a new year, and I have absolutely no doubt that we'll be back next year. We've staying in Porthleven many times over the years, but now we've found you, will always stay in one of your cottagesThe Wells Family
We would like to thank you for a lovely Retreat. The welcome was very nice (and much needed) after our journey here. Amazing view from the garden. Will definitely come back again. You provided everything. Thank you very much!Paul, Donna and Ted
Just a quick email to let you know how much we enjoyed The Retreat! The children loved roaming around the property discovering its quirky characteristics and were really wowed by the rooftop views from the elevated garden. It is such a delightful place to stay - we adored it and would love to come back again some day.The Lane Family
Had a lovely long weekend. Weather was perfect. Minnack Theatre is well worth a visit and St Ives is beautiful. Enjoyed the cottage and Porthleven itself. Would happily come back!Mark Pendry, Steph, Jake and Matthew
Beautiful cottage! Our stay was fantastic. In Porthleven we especially enjoyed the bumpy road and the lights around the village at night. Thank you for our stay it will be a place to return to.Andy, Angela, and Emily, Morcombe
Cottage very comfortable thanks. Visited Penlee gallery and museum in Penzance - very interesting. Good facilities, cafe, play area and nice gardens. Beautiful journey along the coast, could have been the med, but much better!Borran family, Preston
Had a great week, weather good. Recommend a trip to the Lizard, the Cyder Barn Shop, and Coverack beach. Also, get some fish from The Quayside Fish Shop!Jack, Mitch and Boo
