Rose Cottage, Portloe Portloe

£546 - £1604 per week

Immerse yourself in the luxury, tranquillity and seclusion of Rose Cottage, nestled in the quiet village of Portloe. Looking out to the harbour and beyond, Rose Cottage can accommodate large families, multiple generation groups or couples sharing, thanks to the large living space and 3 bathrooms.

The kitchen and living area is designed to present that stunning sea view at its very best, with light pouring into the large space thanks to the patio doors and windows - you can step straight out onto the terrace to soak up the sun and lounge around on the rattan furniture. The room is complemented with a contemporary woodburner for those cooler evenings. Downstairs you will find sumptuously designed bedrooms that are beautifully decorated, complete with a cosy snug for those times you want to escape. Whether you are heading to Cornwall for the culture, cuisine or simply stunning surroundings, Rose Cottage offers you an unforgettable break. Follow the coastal paths to the neighbouring villages, or relax on one of Cornwall's top beaches. Or drive a little further on past Portloe and experience the sailing life of St Mawes, hopping onto a ferry across to Falmouth, or get active and hire a kayak.

A fantastic house in a lovely location. The views from the living rooms on the upper floors and the outside space are splendid and the weather was kind enough for us to be able to eat on the outside table on a number of occasions. All the bedrooms were great and the beds were comfortable and the rooms quiet and dark at night. Generally the house was fantastically stocked and the fact that the owners use it regularly and enjoy it themselves shone through. We also very much appreciated the excellent information and guide to local services, businesses and places provided by the owners. We very much hope to return again soon.

We have just returned from a fantastic week at Rose Cottage. Our family consisted of six adults and a baby. The space within the cottage lends itself to togetherness but also space for privacy and downtime with a good book if needed. Hey, we all loved the UNO game as a family...............! All the furnishings,kitchen equipment and bedrooms (all very tastefully done) within the cottage has been well thought out by the owners, giving a very relaxed but functional feeling. We all slept well and deeply every night. The info book is a must read as it contains great info on the surrounding area. Our party of girls enjoyed a massage, facial and lunch at The Nare Hotel one day and a family lunch at the Hidden Hut another (food and views amazing). Plenty of coastal walks in between. The split level garden with it’s dining table and chairs, sun loungers and relaxing chairs is very private and such a sun trap. What fabulous views of the sea (also from the lounge window). To the right, as you look towards the sea, there is a hill above a wooded area where we watched deer feed and mingle every evening. The parking space for one car within a garage is a real bonus. Would we come back bet we much more to see and do.

A wonderful cottage with bags of character, in a beautiful location. The extras provided by the owner were the best I have seen at a holiday cottage. There are staircases between the levels and a few steps, but the clever layout makes the most of the space and provides amazing views. The pub a few doors up from the cottage is really nice and great place to stop off after exploring the area.

Apr 2019

Rose cottage is a loved and wonderful place to stay in a great location. We would highly recommended it to our friends and family’s.

Feb 2019

We had a lovely stay at Rose cottage, stunning view from the living room. We stayed in December and the fire was really cosy in the evenings. It would be lovely to eat outside in the summer with a view of the harbour. Nice little pub only a couple of doors up the road and a fine dining hotel restaurant by the harbour, small shop around a 5 min drive away. Would love to stay here again, a bit out of the way but we personally like staying out of the way! Thank you for a great stay!

Dec 2018

A really great comfortable, cosy cottage with fabulous views. It was so spacious and well appointed, we had a wonderful stay.

Oct 2018

This was a delightful house and location for autumn week to 'chill out' regardless of weather. We felt that the owners had paid attention to details and written house notes in such a way to make us feel welcome as guests and relaxed.

Very handy to have such a friendly pub next door so we didn't have to cook each night. Simple menu but good food.

We loved being able to walk from the front door along the coastal path.

Will definitely come again.

It's a house most suited to couples and friends who want a very quiet, stress-free kind of break. I wouldn't bring small children or elderly folks due to the stairs and outside deck but it was lovely to just enjoy the views in comfort and peace. Thank you for making it available!

Oct 2018

Amazing cottage well thought out by owners. Every home comforts imaginable

Thank you

Oct 2018

This was a fabulous property that exceeded our expectations. We had a wonderful time enjoying the luxurious comfort, the garden terrace in the sunshine and of course that fabulous view of the sea. Walking around the cliff tops was brilliant as was listening to the lapping sounds of the ocean. The owners offer the cottage as a ‘home away from home’ and we really felt like welcome guests. Their choice of artwork and decor is beautiful and very relaxing. Their helpfulness with local information is great. Having a car park is pretty special in Portloe where space is a premium. We would highly recommend this property. NB there are two sets of steep stairs inside but we found we could do most of our living on the top level and access the property down some less steep stairs from the garage.

Oct 2018

We loved our stay at Rose cottage! It is a charming property, a traditional Cornish cottage with all the modern comforts and very stylishly refurbished and decorated. It boasts spectacular views, and the open plan living space opening out onto a tiered garden area which looks out over the sea, really creates that holiday atmosphere and is a real pleasure to spend your evenings in.

The hosts had thought of everything. It was fantastically equipped and we had a lovely little welcome package. The aspects company were also extremely helpful and receptive with their service.

All in all, a truly fantastic stay.

Note to parents with toddlers... you will have to watch them as there are quite a lot of different levels in the property.
