Located in the small fishing village of Porthallow and just a stone's throw from the sea you will find Bank Cottage. This traditional terraced cottage has glorious sea views and is located right on the South West Coast Path. In fact, your adventure begins as soon as you arrive with a very short walk across the shingle beach from your car to start your holiday.
The open plan living space makes the most of the outlook, the elevated view from the first floor really has the 'wow' factor and many hours can be enjoyed watching the ever-changing scenery. Even the kitchen has a view, which is bound to be a distraction while cooking. The private roof terrace is just a few steps up and enjoys the sunshine most of the day, you can watch sailing boats pass you by and enjoy summer meals in the balmy sunshine.
The bedrooms offer flexible accommodation and privacy from one another, on the ground floor there's a lovely single and double bedroom at the front of the property where you can listen to the gentle sea as it lulls you to sleep. The master bedroom is on the second floor with a king-size bed (which can also be two singles), tucked away from winter storms.
If you enjoy walking this is the perfect place for you with the South West Coast Path right outside your front door, this stunning part of The Lizard has a beautiful coastline with much to discover. The local beach is dog-friendly all year round as are many beaches including Coverack which is a short 15 minute drive away.
Other attractions on the Lizard worth visiting during your stay include the sandy beach at Kennack Sands and the craggy coves of Cadgwith and Kynance Bay and not forgetting a visit to Lizard Point. Closer to home nearby Polkerris has an fantastic diving centre and with many old shipwrecks around you are bound to see fabulous fish and striking seaweeds in the clear waters.
The gentle banks of the Helford River are within easy reach with craggy creeks, traditional pubs and a choice of beautiful gardens for you to explore as you get to know this unspoilt and largely undiscovered part of Cornwall.
