The cottage is cosy and has everything you need for your perfect holiday. Great location just a short stroll from the harbour. A very Cornish welcome with scones clotted cream and jam ( and a bottle of wine !) a perfect start to the perfect holiday. Lots of lovely places to eat, Rick steins definitely worth a visit and also the harbour inn does a proper burger! There Are lots of other restaurants too. A great vibe in Porthleven and a great place to base yourselves for some amazing coastal walks and hidden coves along the lizard peninsula. Thanks Phil, we had a lovely stay at the blue door.

The cottage was perfect for us. 2 minutes to town 5 minutes from the surfing beach. Games at the property to play in the evening with the family. Absolutely loved st Ives and 4 st eia st and can not wait to return
