Scallop Cottage is just a short walk from the harbour and beaches, and even closer to restaurants and shops, making it a cottage that will be the perfect base from which to enjoy your next holiday in Cornwall. The property sits in the heart of the historic harbour town of Porthleven which boasts many excellent independent restaurants, pubs and boutiques and a well-stocked supermarket.
You enter into a wonderfully homely living room, with a feature fireplace boasting an electric wood burner-effect fire. It comes with the technology to provide an authentic log burner experience but without any of the hard work. With chic styling and generous sofas to sink into, this is an ideal space to unwind in an evening after a long day of exploring the coast. The kitchen is a traditional, Shaker-style, in fitting with the cottage aesthetics, whilst there are all the amenities needed; ideal for socialising with family at the table as you prepare your favourite holiday breakfast. The dining area offers a rustic wood table and benches.
Upstairs, there are two double bedrooms, both with hanging and storage space, and tastefully decorated, and a third bedroom with single bed, also offering sophisticated décor. The stairs are a charming period feature, and being original to the house; care should be taken as they are steep and have reduced headroom; the family bathroom is also located on the first floor. To the rear, there is some private outdoor space which is perfect for storing beach equipment or surfboards, until you are ready to hit sea and sand again the next day.
Locally, you are spoilt for choice in this excellent location; there is the National Trust estate of Penrose to visit, Praa Sands, Marazion and St Michaels Mount to the west, and Helford Passage to the East. The north coast is also within easy reach by car, offering more stunning beaches and coastline such as St Ives, Zennor, and Carbis Bay. The Lizard and Kynance Cove are also well worth a visit meaning you’ll be spoilt for choice with your days out. Flambards theme park - an ideal kids’ day out - is also only a few minutes’ drive away.
