Located in the pretty village of Porthgwarra, this charming three bedroom coastguard cottage is an idyllic Cornish retreat for those looking to get away from it all. Located in far West Cornwall but within walking distance to Land’s End and the popular Minack theatre, the cottage offers you a secluded retreat with far reaching views over the dramatic coastline. Offering three bedrooms on the first floor, the property can accommodate up to five guests and would suit a family or small group of friends looking to explore this secret gem of Cornwall.
Head out on to the Coastal path and discover some of our favourite places in Cornwall. Lesser known but equally as beautiful, many of these coves and beaches have been filming locations for the TV series Poldark. Take the path south and you’ll soon come across the Minack Theatre; a uniquely famous open aired theatre located on the cliffs above the Atlantic Ocean. If you’re feeling adventurous, take the rocky cliff path down to the tropical oasis of Porthcurno, a sheltered cove with sandy beaches and crystal clear waters.

Great to find 3 bedroomed house with decent size beds for tall teenagers, often 3rd bedroom has bunk beds. Loved welcome pack with scones.Mrs Caroline Wallace - 17th August 2019
We loved our stay at the coast guard cottage. On arrival we were left a huge plate of fresh scones as well as jam, clotted cream, milk, tea, coffee and fruit juice. Every little detail was thought of, even poo bags for the dog! The house was immaculately clean. We found a couple of lovely dog-friendly beaches not too far away as there are restrictions for dogs between 8am and 7pm on most beaches. A fab holiday if you are after peace and quiet, stunning coastal walks and a cosy cottage to come back to.Mrs Sarah Maguire - 8th August 2019
Super clean, comfy and cosy cottage in a stunning location and excellent value for money - what more could you ask!Mrs Jackie Budd - 30th May 2019
Immaculate cottage with all mod cons, yet very comfortable and homely. And in the most astonishing position with views to the Scillies, the finest scenery on the country literally outside the door and one of Cornwall's prettiest coves (with a sandy beach) two minutes walk down the lane. Lovely. Cornish Horizons have such friendly, helpful people. I have rented many properties in West Cornwall for visiting friends and family over the years (probably 4-6 weeks a year on average) and Cornish Horizons has been by far the best agency I've rented through. Mr Colin Rogers - 10th January 2019
The extras such as dishwasher tablets, dog bags etc. that were left for us at the start of our holiday were very useful and much appreciated.Mr Andrew Bailey - 5th September 2018
Great location, love the coast line, Porthgwarra beach, watching seals in the bay.Mr Richard North - 26th August 2018
Perfect location, cottage was very well equipped and clean. This made our stay most enjoyable. Thank you Mrs Jayne Ellis - 13th August 2018
very very clean, cozy, home to home, in the kitchen everything you need. Amazing remote location! The best secret beaches of Cornwall with pure white sand at walking distance! This is the real Land's End.Mrs Natalia L Romanova - 27th February 2018
Stunning location with great bird watching, walking and opportunities to watch the Poldark crew film and the Royal Marines practice cliff rescue. This cottage is cosy and well fitted out. Lovely bathroom with bath and walk in shower and super wood burning stove in the comfortable sitting room. We would return.Mrs Karin Cannons - 20th September 2017
Perfect quiet location, away from all the noise, ideal for a real getaway! Beautiful long and short walking routes, the Café is literally walking distance and the beaches are stunning!Miss Krishan Dhariwal - 10th September 2017
