Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Porthleven - Blue Door Cottage

2 bedroom, cosy cottage, close to restaurants and amenities

Blue Door Cottage is located in the charming village of Porthleven with its harbour, beach and a selection of good restaurants within just a couple of hundred metres. The cottage has a double and a twin bedroom, comfortably sleeping up to four guests. Outside there is a small seating area next to our palm tree for outside dining.

Heading west on the coastal path you can explore South West Cornwall with its rugged coastline dotted with fine beaches and on to Mounts Bay and St Michael's Mount. Head East and just a short walk to Loe Bar and the National Trust owned Penrose Estate then on to the Lizard Peninsula, the most Southerly Point in Britain, with its stunning views, coves and amazing wildlife - a must for all keen birdwatchers and wildlife enthusiasts.

Within a short drive the historic and popular town of St Ives (20 minutes), Lands End (35 minutes) and the golden sand surfing beaches of Praa Sands (10 minutes), Sennen (35 minutes), Gwithian (20 minutes) with our favourite, the breath taking Kynance Cove (20 minutes).

About Phil & Nikki

My wife Nikki was born in West Cornwall however spent most of her childhood in Sussex. I grew up in Surrey and after meeting Nikki spent regular trips to Cornwall visiting Nikki's family where we married in 2006. Our dream was to set up our home in Cornwall with our two boys and we finally made the jump in 2010 and haven't looked back - it truly is a fantastic place to bring up kids. We live just 4 miles from Porthleven and I have recently set up an office here - travelling back to London from time to time. We love relaxing around the harbour with its numerous restaurants and pubs to meet all tastes - we are sure you'll love it too!

Phil & Nikki purchased this cottage in 2013

Stylish, cosy cottage close to the harbour

  • 5 out of 5
A spotless and well-maintained cottage with lovely, fresh interior decor. In addition, only a couple of minutes walk from several fantastic restaurants and the picturesque harbour. Positive, friendly and attentive service. We highly recommend!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 out of 5
We had a very warm welcome with scones and jam; the cottage is nice, clean and comfortable with an authentic style, and the owners are very nice as well. The beach is just a short walk away, and Porthleven is a very nice place to stay if you like a relaxing atmosphere. We made a trip to St. Ives, and while it is nice as well, we found it too busy in comparison to Porthleven. The Ship's Inn is definitely worth a visit (or more), and many nice restaurants are located around the harbour. Be sure to visit Kynance Cove (close to Lizard Point). We will very likely be back!

Lovely, clean cottage

  • 5 out of 5
A lovely, clean and tidy cottage. Very homely and well equipped. Blue Door is in a great location, quiet and close to the harbour. The scones, milk e.t.c at the cottage were a treat and very welcoming after a long journey. The Ship Inn is a great pub with loads of character and good food, would recommend a visit. Porthleven is a superb holiday destination ( not over busy like St. Ives) the harbour is very quaint with plenty of independent shops and super restaurants.

We will be recommending the cottage to family and friends and hope to return in the future.

A lovely little cottage close the sea.

  • 5 out of 5
The Blue Door is a perfect place for a romantic break and we loved everything about it.

The Welcome Pack of scones and fresh cream with jam - and of course the obligatory bottle of milk was much appreciated. Everything was really clean and the log-burner was really relaxing.

Porthleven is a beautiful village with lots of craft shops and restaurants. In particular we would recommend the Harbour Inn for a Sunday carvery and Rolands Plaice for a chippy, where the cuckoo clocks and sleeping cat are a must-see.

The walk along by the pier can be breath-taking.

Highly recommended!!

Thanks Phil and Nikki.

Delightful cottage

  • 5 out of 5
The Blue Door is a delightful, very clean and well equipped holiday home. We especially enjoyed the log burner. The location is superb for coastal walks and plenty of places to eat out. We had a very relaxing and enjoyable half term break.

Wonderful

  • 5 out of 5
I can only echo the other reviewers: a lovely cottage with everything you need provided. The owners have clearly made every effort to make their guests feel comfortable and welcome and have succeeded brilliantly.
A great base for exploring or walking around the Lizard and west Cornwall.
In short - GO! You won't be disappointed.
