A tastefully appointed cottage. I’ve stayed in many cottages in Cornwall and this beats them all. This is the second time I’ve stayed at No 9 and loved every minute. Thankyou.

We very much enjoyed our stay in Coastguard Terrace, lovely cottage and outside space. Good to have the woodburner. There is a garden area at top of steps too... but not used I don't think. The village is lovely with a small fishing harbour and a pub, the other is a hotel which we couldn't sample as only open to residents. There is no local shop. Some lovely walking to be enjoyed..and good beaches ..our favourite Porthcurnick near Portscatho. All in all ticked all the boxes.

The cottage is situated in a beautiful and unspoilt part of Cornwall and is in superb condition.

Wonderful cottage in wonderful location. One of the best places we've ever stayed. Will definitely be back.

Excellent location to explore Cornwall.

Beautiful village, very peaceful, and ideally located to enjoy the Roseland Peninsular and its lovely villages and coastal paths. Nearby donation parking very useful, and local pub good for drinks and dinner.

The cottage has everything you need for a wonderful holiday.

Very comfortable and well presented property thank you.

A lovely cottage in a great location to access the South West Coastal Path with some magnificent, but strenuous, walking. Very comfortable to come home to!

Perfect Cottage, perfect location

We were thrilled with everything at Coastguard Cottage! This was our second stay and during both visits the weather was so kind to us and the view from the cottage was beautiful. We visited Carne beach each day and played golf on the nearby Porthpean course which was in excellent condition. The surrounding walks are spectacular and we decided to walk from St Anthony Head and were thrilled to spot seals on the beach. An amazing time. Thank you! Wendy Welsh

Small but very well equipped cottage in a great location - perfect for a family of four. Plenty to do within a short drive including two lovely beaches (the local one isn’t really good for swimming and no beach to sit on). Would definitely recommend.

An excellent property in a fabulous location

This cottage really exceeded our expectations, with the attractive decor, fabulous views and close proximity to the coast and some excellent coastal walks. The outside space was great for relaxing after some strenuous days out. Portloe is an unspoilt village and so well maintained making it a joy to stay in, together with its stunning location.

A lovely cottage in a delightful part of Cornwall. Well equipped, warm and comfortable and well restored . Well run and reasonably priced.

Well equipped in a quiet & peaceful location, good value for money

We had a wonderful week in 9 Coastguard Cottage. The weather was glorious and the cottage was a very peaceful place to be. The surrounding scenery is spectacular and Portloe is a very special haven. The cottage is painted in calm colours and decor is lovely. It is very well equipped and we could imagine it could also be cosy in the cooler months. Thank you for this little escape from a world that is rather topsy turvy at the moment.

Lovely little cottage in a tiny village with easy access to the coastal path. Its a long drive from any shops so important to shop carefully before arrival (including tea, coffee, salt and pepper as these are inadequate/not provided).

Beds are comfortable and the living room is beautiful. Direct access to a little terrace.

Thanks so much for reviewing 9 Coastguard Terrace and we hope you enjoyed many a summer stroll along the nearby coast path during your stay. There's a very well stocked shop 'Roseland Local' a 5 minute drive from the cottage, it's tucked in the corner of the local petrol station so you might not have spotted it. We do request that a welcome tea tray with the basics of milk, tea and coffee are provided for that well deserved first cuppa after a long journey so we're really sorry if this was missing. We'll certainly follow up with the housekeeping team to ensure that these are restocked. Bryony, Customer Support

Perfect location, utterly charming village in beautiful and peaceful area. The cottage generally however, needs a good clean and refurbishment.

A stunning and quiet location with wonderful walks on the doorstep and a good pint the village!

Lovely cottage with good parking and fantastic views. Barbecue made our holiday memorable.

We very much enjoyed our stay at coastguard Terrace, even in the midst of winter. The cottage is nicely decorated and we liked the sea view, sitting on the sofa beside the fireplace. Portloe is a beautiful village with beautiful gardens around, the lost garden of Heligan being our favorite. We had nice walks on the coastpath in both directions and would like to recommend the Nare Hotel for a great afternoon tea. The Eden Project is also worth a visit. We will certainly come again.

Fantastic cottage , very comfortable and cosy . Decor and furnishings were excellent. Would love to stay again .

Lovely cosy cottage, Portloe is a lovely quiet cornish village and the nearby cliff walk views are beautiful. The cottage is tastefull, comfy and clean - beds were very comfy.

A delightful cottage, light, airy and very friendly feeling. A lovely relaxing base to leave and come back to after days out, though you could just stay sunning yourself on the terrace.
