Cosy cottage

By Hannah on 12-Dec-2023

The cottage was beautiful, very well kept & had very comfortable beds. We loved the eclectic decor. The weather was wild during our stay and the cottage was very cosy. It was a great location for accessing the south west coastal footpath.

Brilliant place for relaxing and switching off

By Zaki on 22-Nov-2023

I had a lovely stay at Porthcothan Mill. The cottage was homely and comfortable, and a great place to return to after long walks in the area, especially on the beach and the clifftops. The garden is also beautiful, with plenty of space. It''s also a very convenient location for seeing the rest of Cornwall - even Penzance and St Ives were an hour''s drive away. A brilliant place for relaxing and switching off!

Dog heaven

By Ann on 15-Nov-2023

We have been coming to Porthcothan every year for decades but this is the first time in the valley. Kate is a great host, allowing us to bring both our Labs, who were in doggy heaven, and answering all my questions patiently. This cottage is just perfect in every way for a relaxing away from it all holiday; we only took the car out once! We arrived with the dire warnings of Storm Barbet but that passed Porthcothan unnoticed while we were on the beach with our dogs in 16c sunshine or cosied down with the log burner and the delicious cream tea left by Kate on our arrival. We can recommend the Merrymoor Inn in Mawgan Porth from this visit, the Beach store for pasties and pastries and the little store opposite the garage in St Merryn for supplies. We think the beach is the best in the area; even a doggy swimming pool at low tide which they search for endlessly at high tide , and then there''s the coast path, as far as you like in either direction with stunning views. Just be sure to bring your wellies. We''ll be back in April.
