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.

Super clean, comfy and cosy cottage in a stunning location and excellent value for money - what more could you ask!

Mrs Jackie B,

Immaculate cottage with all mod cons, yet very comfortable and homely. And in the most astonishing position with views to the Scillies, the finest scenery on the country literally outside the door and one of Cornwall's prettiest coves (with a sandy beach) two minutes walk down the lane. Lovely. Cornish Horizons have such friendly, helpful people. I have rented many properties in West Cornwall for visiting friends and family over the years (probably 4-6 weeks a year on average) and Cornish Horizons has been by far the best agency I've rented through.

Mr Colin R,

The extras such as dishwasher tablets, dog bags etc. that were left for us at the start of our holiday were very useful and much appreciated.

Mr Andrew B,

Great location, love the coast line, Porthgwarra beach, watching seals in the bay.

Mr Richard N,

Perfect location, cottage was very well equipped and clean. This made our stay most enjoyable. Thank you

Mrs Jayne E,

very very clean, cozy, home to home, in the kitchen everything you need. Amazing remote location! The best secret beaches of Cornwall with pure white sand at walking distance! This is the real Land's End.

Previous Customer,


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 world-famous Minack Theatre is located, right round to Sennen Cove and Land’s End; the county and country’s most south-westerly point.

The approach to Sennen is along a winding lane through beautiful moorland and as you start the descent into the village you can’t help but spot the white-crested waves heading onto shore making Sennen Cove Cornwall’s popular surf hotspot. With a mile of soft white sand and a picturesque harbour, the village combines a working fishing port with an easy-going surf style.

The area’s beaches are a draw for holidaymakers and locals alike and offer great surfing and safe bathing within flagged areas. A range of local independent shops, galleries, cafés and eateries are all within an easy walk along the seafront.

The striking cliffs and mighty ocean are contrasted by the peaceful countryside; enjoy both extremes or, for a totally different experience, explore the area’s mining heritage or 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.
