This lovely two bedroom mid-terraced cottage boasts an enviable position overlooking the sea and neighbouring coastline at Portwrinkle. A short stroll will take you down to the beach and the sheltered sandy cove is perfect for sandcastle builders and beach cricketers. At low tide there are excellent rock pools in which children of all ages can fish for crabs and other marine life. For walkers the South Coast Path passes Portwrinkle on its way west to Looe and east to Cremyll from where you can take a ferry to Plymouth for a day out in the city. Whitsand Bay Hotel is a 5 minute walk away and guests may wish to take advantage of the special discounted rates which apply for golf and leisure facilities (including swimming pool and sauna). The main local fishing town of Looe with its many shops, bars, restaurants and cafes is a 20 minute drive away and, from the working harbour, glass bottom boat trips, sea excursions and speed boat rides can all be booked. The picturesque village of Polperro is a further five minutes on from Looe. Hawkins is a lovely house for a family beach holiday. It has a comfortable lounge for relaxing as well as a sun lounge for dining, with panoramic views over the sea. The first floor double bedroom also has magnificent views. Outside there is a private patio and garden furniture as well as large front garden (which is shared with next door) all overlooking the sea.

Portwrinkle, in Cornish Porthwykkel, is located on the southeast coast of Cornwall. This small village has a fine view along Whitsand Bay and a history going as far back as medieval times.
Portwrinkle has two main beaches Finnygook and Hoodny Cove, and smaller beaches nearby, at low tide, there are plenty of rock pools to explore with their variety of sea life. Access to both beaches is by steep paths and limited at high tide. On the cliffs above these two main beaches there are two small car parks (only a few minutes walk away). There are also toilets nearby.
Finnygook is south facing and stands on the eastern side of Portwrinkle. It is sandy, backed by cliffs and is the most popular beach for experienced surfers and families, but please take notice of the on-site warnings regarding swimming and the cliffs. Dogs are banned from the beach from Easter Day to the 1st October but for the rest of the year the beach is dog friendly.
Hoodny Cove is adjacent to the quay and harbour and is on the western side. It is a shingle beach and is quieter than Finnygook. Dogs are allowed on the beach all year round.
Please be aware, there is no lifeguard service at either of Portwrinkle's beaches although rescue equipment is available. Another beach located nearby is Britain Cove. This is a secluded sandy beach which is small at high tide. This is a dog friendly beach - dogs are allowed all year round.
Overall though we enjoyed our stay very much. Thank you!Mrs Debbie Williams - 14th August 2017
