Bank Cottage (Porthallow, Helford)
Beachside Cottage in a Small Fishing Village near Helford River
Cottage | Sleeps 5 + Cot | Pet Welcome | Friday Changeover

Julia Tambinich
This pretty, well-equipped cottage is in a lovely location, overlooking the beach.  We enjoyed sitting in the window seat watching the fishing boats.  The house itself is very cosy, rooms are tastefully decorated, beds are very comfortable and there is plenty of storage space.  The roof terrace provides splendid views over the bay, a great spot for a long lunch. It was great to be able to bring our dog, there are splendid walks along the coastal path just outside the front door.  Porthallow is quiet and unspoilt.  At least one visit to The Five Pilchards is essential, with very good food and friendly staff. We will definitely be coming back.

"Great little cottage, really enjoyed the roof terrace. Found some great little routes along the footpaths, the route to St. Keverne is particularly nice.  Would recommend it to other dog owners! Will miss the view and the weather."

"What better place to spend your  65th birthday.  Glorious few days, exceptionally hot for September and the sea lovely and warm.  The roof terrace is a fantastic addition.   Great good value lunch at the Ferry Boat, then followed by yummy ice cream at Roskilly's on the way back."

"We had a great time here and love the cottage, the beach, the village etc.  We really liked The Shipwright's Arms at Helford, and Coverack was excellent for swimming and water sports.  We parked within 20m of Lizard Point, how is that possible?  Thanks."
Charlotte Graham and family
"We had such a lovely week at Bank Cottage! You have created such a beautiful place to stay!  We loved looking at the beach from the bay window and sitting up on the roof terrace!  We loved it so much we have booked to return next August for 2 weeks!"
