Located in the pretty village of Porthgwarra, this charming three bedroom coastguard cottage is an idyllic Cornish retreat for those looking to get away from it all. Located in far West Cornwall but within walking distance to Land’s End and the popular Minack theatre, the cottage offers you a secluded retreat with far reaching views over the dramatic coastline. Offering three bedrooms on the first floor, the property can accommodate up to five guests and would suit a family or small group of friends looking to explore this secret gem of Cornwall.

Head out on to the Coastal path and discover some of our favourite places in Cornwall. Lesser known but equally as beautiful, many of these coves and beaches have been filming locations for the TV series Poldark. Take the path south and you’ll soon come across the Minack Theatre; a uniquely famous open aired theatre located on the cliffs above the Atlantic Ocean. If you’re feeling adventurous, take the rocky cliff path down to the tropical oasis of Porthcurno, a sheltered cove with sandy beaches and crystal clear waters.

Local Area

The spectacular coastline spanning the southern edge of West Cornwall is home to some truly idyllic, picturesque villages and hamlets. From Mousehole in the east (where one of the county’s most impressive Christmas lights display can be found), along the coast to Porthcurno, where the unique Minack Theatre is located, right round to Lands End; the county and country’s most south-westerly point. The striking cliffs and mighty ocean are contrasted by the peaceful countryside; enjoy both extremes or, for a totally different experience, take the short drive to Penzance and sample the shops, pubs and restaurants of the town. St Ives, with its art galleries, beaches and foodie culture, is just over half an hour’s drive.


Stunning location with great bird watching, walking and opportunities to watch the Poldark crew film and the Royal Marines practice cliff rescue. This cottage is cosy and well fitted out. Lovely bathroom with bath and walk in shower and super wood burning stove in the comfortable sitting room. We would return.Mrs Karin Cannons - 20th September 2017
Perfect quiet location, away from all the noise, ideal for a real getaway! Beautiful long and short walking routes, the Café is literally walking distance and the beaches are stunning!Miss Krishan Dhariwal - 10th September 2017
