Rose Cottage Portloe Portloe

£546 - £1604

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, so all can enjoy this special part of Cornwall. 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 the 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.

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!

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.

November 2018

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

October 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!

October 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.

September 2018

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

Thank you

September 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.
