The barn and settings are outstanding and the views are epic! My little boy loved a walk around the lake and woods after spending a day on the beach. It truly is a wonderful part of Cornwall.

Mrs M,

Excellent property if you want a quiet holiday and like to be away from it all. The owners were really nice and helpful.

Mr Denny S,


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.   Hoodny Cove is adjacent to the quay and harbour and is on the western side.  

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.
