The space
Please read FULLY before booking :)

The cabin is totally secluded and set in a lovely private garden over looking the stunning bay of Portholland.


The cabin is the perfect cosy place for a retreat/ meditation break/ or romantic get away. Drift off to sleep to the sound of the waves below.

It offers the perfect blend of getting away from it all & life’s hectic schedule yet still being able to reach the outside world if you wish.

The decking area is perfect for some al fresco dining whilst enjoying the spectacular views of the sea and village. It's also a fabulous platform for star gazing. Take out your hot chocolate and be amazed at the shooting stars on a clear night!

Portholland also has a lovely tidal beach which is
safe for swimming and canoeing. If you're feeling adventurous there is a 1 man canoe available on request which you can use to explore the secret hidden coves which can be found on either side of Portholland.


Spacious double bed. Linen and bath towels included. Hot shower and flush toilet. Unfortunately our toilet system can’t handle toilet paper/ sanitary products - a bin is provided for these.

If you want to hole up for a few days, make sure you bring enough provisions etc as the nearest shop/s are a 15 min drive away in Tregony and Veryan.


WIFI. Signal is very good, possible to stream Netflix etc with no problems.

Only 1 double bed, but space for a travel cot for young child or blow up mattress ( for a child)

During Autumn the footpaths get very muddy so I recommend boots.

Please note there is no oven, just a small gas stove (2) microwave, slow cooker, toaster, sandwich toaster.

Not suitable for dogs

Sea kayaks available to use on request during the summer months, May - September


Please note -
Think European when it comes to our toilet! Toilet paper & sanitary products must go in the bin provided. We have a very basic toilet system which blocks easily. A bin with special bags are supplied.

The television is for the DVD player, no satellite dish. But WiFi works well for streaming on your devices. :)

Cold water only from the kitchen tap

Hot shower :)

Please .... please don’t message me asking if you can bring your dog!

For a small fee I can supply your favourite bottle of wine / flowers / chocolates on special occasions. Ask for more info after booking. :)

After a guests unfortunate accident involving candles, I respectfully ask that you do not bring / use candles in the cabin.

Guest access
microwave, mini fridge, mini gas stove, toaster, slow cooker for hot pots, sandwich toaster. WiFi, DVD player. Kettle , pots n pans

Other things to note
Please read BEFORE booking ;)

I supply linen & towels. But not beach towels. I also supply tea, coffee, milk, cereal.

I advise guests to bring food supplies and to bring a back pack for ease when walking up to the cabin. Also a torch in case you go out after dark.!

The nearest pub is in Portloe, 10 mins drive from the village. The nearest supermarkets are Tesco in Truro or Asda in St Austell

During Autumn I recommend wellies or good walking shoes for coastal path walking as it can get a bit muddy.


Please note that our flushing toilet can't handle sanitary products or toilet paper. A bin is provided for these things next to the toilet.

Before booking, please understand that the cabin isn't 5 star holiday accommodation- it's a warm, cosy, comfortable, basic cabin in an outstanding location. If rustic isn't for you, please don't book :)

We don’t accept bookings for under 21

NO DOGS

If I’m out at work when you arrive I’ll send you the directions to the cabin, please read these thoroughly so you don’t end up in my neighbours garden. :)

Of course to get such a lovely view, you need to walk up a hill.... it’s not far & only takes a few mins from the car parking area.
If you struggle with hills then this isn’t the place for you. :)



I realise that I will need to do a clean when you check out, but please may I ask you to leave the space as you found it. Many thanks. :)


After a guests unfortunate accident involving candles, I respectfully ask that you do not bring / use candles in the cabin.

For Christmas & New Year bookings, there’s a minimum booking of 3 nights.
