Cove View, one of three tastefully converted barns, is nestled in the hillside, overlooking Porthallow on the Lizard Peninsula. All on one level, the cottage features a classic slate floor, exposed timbers and stonework, plus a wood burning stove for romantic evenings inside. It's decorated throughout in bright white, which gives the cottage a traditional feel and showcases all the original features.
Step into the property and you'll find a spacious lounge. There's a large yellow sofa with a colourful throw and plenty of scatter cushions, plus a vibrant red matching arm chair. That's where I'd head, in the evening, with a large glass of Prosecco and a book from the overflowing bookcase. If you'd rather settle down with some television, then turn on the flat-screen TV and catch up on your favourite show, or pop a film into the DVD player.
Most of the furniture is natural wood and this really adds warmth and personality to the room. You'll find a small table and chairs under the window, just big enough for supper, with stunning views across the garden.There's one double bedroom with a king-size bed and built-in wardrobes for a streamlined, uncluttered feel. You'll find a light, airy shower room, and a fully functional kitchen with a traditional Belfast sink and a breakfast bar, ideal for early morning coffee and croissants.
Outside, there's a barbecue on the terrace, with views of the sea and countryside, and a sheltered area of lawn, perfect for lazing and recharging in the late-afternoon sun.
One under-cover parking space is allocated to the property, and dogs are welcome at an additional fee of £50 per week. There are laundry facilities available. We also require a refundable £100 deposit against damages on the property.
Cove View can be rented in conjunction with Rainbow Cottage and Rainbow End for larger groups – if you're thinking of booking more than one of our Porthallow properties, please ask about a discount.
