Mounts Bay Cottage – Porthleven, Niche Retreats
Just around the corner from the Cornwall Living offices sits this charming period cottage just above the beach in our picturesque fishing village of Porthleven, which offers you panoramic views towards Mounts Bay and beyond.
The Lounge is a huge room that extends the whole depth of the building with a beamed and a gas effect wood burner for those chilly evenings with a glass of port. We recommend you fall into the deep, comfortable sofas and chairs while relaxing in front of the comprehensive entertainment suite, which includes internet access and Sky DVD to make this room the centre of activity in the evenings.
The Kitchen and dining room combine to match the lounge in extending the whole depth of the building, with an enormous table complimented by furnishings that help to create a perfect place to wine and dine.
The large kitchen is very spacious and fitted with lovely quality branded appliances for whisking up those evening meals for the family, and is also linked to a utility room which contains the washing machine, spin dryer etc. In days gone by this room would have been called the “Scullery”.
The main bedroom is an extremely large room where you can enjoy stunning sea views finished in restful fabrics to create a calm pleasant place to sleep. The en-suite facility, again spacious for purpose, features a deluge shower, which leaves one feeling so invigorated.
The guest bedroom offers the same stunning sea views as the main bedroom, and is furnished with twin beds and soft fabrics to match.
For the children (or perhaps the child in you), there are two full size adult bunks, while the additional single room
has a day bed, with masses of cushions, ideal for sleeping 1 or for use as a day when “I just want to be on my own”.
What can one say about a family bathroom..? Well, we would say that it offers a bath with a shower over and all fittings are of the highest standard.
Obviously, it’s not just about the inside, and with a large patio
to the front of the retreat, which overlooks the beach, this provides an ideal place for a barbeque or just lazing and letting the world go by while taking in the breathtaking views over the bay.
