Grandad's Net Loft has become one of our most sought after properties, undoubtedly due to it's stunning cliff top location overlooking the whole of Mount's Bay. Originally a fisherman's cottage, it has in recent years been lovingly converted into a cosy retreat for two, the stunning sea views making it perfect for a romantic getaway. With plenty of outside space, this property boasts a large decked area - perfect for relaxing or alfresco dining in the warmer months - and a brightly painted summerhouse for you to use. A private off-road parking space is included with this property, and access to the beach is just a few short minutes walk away.
On entering the property, you will find the open plan kitchen area/sitting room complete with flat screen TV. Although compact, the kitchen area is well-equipped with an electric hob, a combination microwave with oven and grill, and fridge with ice box compartment. There is also a shower room with shower cubicle, basin and WC on this floor.
Stairs lead down to the lovely master bedroom with double bed, TV, DVD player and French doors opening out onto the patio - just the spot to enjoy a long breakfast overlooking the sea on a summer's morning.

Set on the west coast of the spectacular Lizard Peninsula, the little harbour town of Porthleven is the quintessential Cornish fishing port. Centred around the harbour, it boasts an array of cafés, restaurants and galleries and exudes a chilled, relaxed atmosphere. Porthleven is the most southerly working port in the UK, with fishing boats operating out of the harbour. This makes the town a great spot to enjoy some delicious seafood, straight from the fishing boats to the restaurants, it couldn’t be fresher!
Porthleven beach can be accessed from the town itself and provides a long expanse of sand which is separated into segments by several rocky outcrops. While away the glorious summer days relaxing on the beach with a locally made ice cream in hand!
Situated part way along a huge sweeping bay, it faces the Atlantic Ocean and is often on the receiving end of some mighty winter storms! A fabulous destination for a winter break; marvel at the awe-inspiring waves pounding the harbour walls from the cosy safety of the local pub!
The surrounding area doesn’t disappoint either; located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the views from every cove or clifftop are picture-perfect. Travel north-west and you’ll reach Marazion, home of St Michael’s Mount – an absolute ‘must’. South takes you to the tip of the Lizard Peninsula, Lizard Point, one of Cornwall’s most iconic spots.
You won’t tire of the walks and stunning scenery, but if you fancy a day out, try the Seal Sanctuary, Flambards or Trebah Gardens. Or, go a little further afield and you can explore Penzance, Land’s End and St Ives.
It was fabulous for 2 people in good weather, which we had. Everyday we were able to have a long extended brunch on the little patio by the sea. It was stunning. The little house was very warm.Mrs Heather Haskins - 31st October 2019
Grandad's net loft is compact , snug and well designed. The downstairs bedroom, with a very comfortable bed, leads out to a small hidden patio garden with 3 seating areas so there is always somewhere to catch the sun .The elevated uninterrupted view of the sea and beach is stunning. The 5 minute walk into Porthleven with all its great facilities and friendly atmosphere makes this cottage an ideal place to stay.Mr Rodney Eales - 3rd September 2019
