This is our third trip to Porthleven, having stayed previously in cottages this has been our favourite. The perfect family home. We really enjoyed all the little details and think you have made our stay fantastic. We were provided with every item you could need for a week away and would definitely visit again.The Minshalls
We had a wonderful time at Merrilee, thank you for the loan of such a beautiful cottage over the Christmas and New Year break! You really have thought of everything and we have enjoyed our time here immensely.Justine and Barrie Draper
I stayed in Merrilee for a fortnight in February. The cottage was warm and comfortable, and an easy walk down to the town where a surprising number of shops and restaurants were open for business. The cottage has been renovated to a very high standard, and the owner adds many personal touches to make your arrival and your holiday a really happy experience. I shall be going back!Caroline Mills
Merrilee is a fabulous cottage, everything we could wish for, spotless and perfect. Made use of the lovely garden & BBQ. Sun, sea and a lovely harbour, thanks for a very warm welcome and generous supplies! We will miss being here, thank youAndy, Sue, Luke & Toby, Norfolk
This is our second visit to Cornwall and our first time in Porthleven and we have to say this is the best cottage we've ever stayed in and we were so pleased with it when we arrived. You have thought of absolutely everything. We were very lucky with the weather and were so comfortable staying here we didn't want to leave! Thank you for a fabulous holiday.Claire, Paul, Sasha and Tilly the dog, North Wales
This has been the most fabulous week. The cottage exceeded expectations, not just because it has been beautifully refurbed, but the extra touches that Sue goes to, to make you feel welcome and at home. Porthleven is such a beautiful place and central to all the trips we took. The people are so friendly. Definitely coming again, hope you all enjoy it as much as we did.Becs, Gil, Mary and Sacci (London)
Had a great week - the weather couldn't have been better. A lovely place to stay and didn't want to go home. Great food (and nice beer!) in the Ship Inn. Visited Geevor tin mine - fascinating and not the usual tourist attraction. Beaches lovely! Thanks for a brill holiday:)Malcolm
Thanks Sue, we have really enjoyed our stay at Merrilee. It's a beautiful cottage and we felt at home straight away. This was our first stay in Porthleven and we will definitely be returning.Phil, Julia and Millie the boxer (West Midlands)
The cottage is great. We love Porthleven, 3rd visit. Good location for walks to harbour. Had a lovely stay, will return.Rob, Emma, Jack and Fudge (S Wales)
Absolutely lovely cottage, the best we have stayed in. Porthleven is a little gem, we have been amazed. We will surely return, thank you Sue for allowing us to discover this part of Cornwall with such comfortable surroundings.Sandie, Robert and Charlie the Lab (Wiltshire)
