Bakehouse Cottage is a compact, cosy and homely cottage with everything that you need and would suit a couple or a family with young children. The cottage is nicely decorated and furnished and is in a good location for Porthmeor and Portgwidden beaches and is very close to the harbour.

Bakehouse Cottage has a lovely happy and relaxed feeling. We loved all of the personal touches likes the unique art work, lovely snuggle blankets and beautiful furniture. The kitchen was fully equipped and we were able to cook a delicious duck for our Christmas dinner. Thank you so much for decorating the property in Christmas decorations- what a lovely surprise and made it feel like a home from home. Overall an amazing little cottage for a lovely relaxing stay...simply open the door and roll on down to the sea and The Sloop!
