View Room Information
Dating back to the 1890’s this traditional fisherman’s cottage with its whitewashed stone exterior and newly refurbished interior, creates an utterly charming family retreat within the coastal town of Porthleven in West Cornwall. Set just a few minutes’ walk from the town’s iconic harbour and seafront, The Hideaway is perfectly positioned for storm-watching in the colder months and sun-filled coastal excursions in the warmer. Offering a lovely ground floor living space as well as two delightful upper floor bedrooms, the cottage, thanks to its original features; feels spacious and airy while at the same time quaint and cosy.

There's also a surprise up its sleeve…a fantastic garden to the back which has been cleverly landscaped to create a large, contemporary outdoor space that's ideal for fresh air dining and for spending time in the sunshine. Cooking is a joy in the home’s modern Shaker-style kitchen where ample worktop space and a range of appliances provide all that guests would need to rustle up a few home-style classics, while the breakfast bar invites morning gatherings where chats about the day’s plans can be shared over a coffee.

Set within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and with sweeping views towards Mount’s Bay, Porthleven is wonderfully positioned and offers visitors an unspoiled taste of West Cornwall’s beaches and coastline. Town life centres around its historic harbour and quay which bustles with the activity of fishing boats offloading their daily catches, and there’s an authentic atmosphere of the 'real Cornwall' here, where its historic fishing roots have carried through to modern times. A wealth of award-winning restaurants serve up delicious offerings using the freshest of fish and seafood caught in its very own waters, and for those wishing to curate a home-cooked feast of their own, the famous Quayside Fishmongers is where you'll find some of the best scallops, lobster, Rock Salmon and Wild Bass (to name just a few).

Ideal for families, Porthleven’s three-mile beach is sandy and golden and when the tide is out, the neighbouring beach of Loe Bar is a 2 mile walk away. Nearby the Penrose Estate’s rich farm and woodland make for a lovely day out, while the Lizard Peninsula and Land's End are within easy reach by car.
