Only 150 yards from the sea with elevated sea views from the sunny south facing garden, this pretty semi-detached cottage of great character is situated in the unspoilt Cornish fishing village of Portloe, tucked far down on the delightful Roseland Peninsula.

Here, stoutly built cottages with slated grey roofs cluster along the lower slopes of the well sheltered and secluded valley and around the shores of a small Cornish cove where a few boats still unload their catch of lobster, crab and other fish.

Proncha is within 60 yards of the coastal path and easy walking distance of the picturesque cove, slipway and pub. There is a shop and sub post office at Veryan 1.5 miles away and Melinsey Mill offering cream teas and lunch is close by. Several sandy beaches are a short drive away.

Approached through a small walled and gated front garden, the front door set beneath an open porch leads directly into a comfortable sitting room with a slate hearth. Linked by three steps is a maple fitted kitchen / dining room. Both rooms have low beam ceilings and terracotta tile floors with rugs. The windows, set into thick stone walls, look out over the garden.

Upstairs are two bedrooms with a double bed and twin beds respectively and a bathroom W.C. with hand basin, shower over the bath and an access door to the garden. Tucked into the hillside the main part of the garden has a grassed sun bathing area behind the Fuchsia hedge, flower beds and shrubs on three levels with a Gazebo providing shelter and a commanding view over the bay in the direction of Dodman Point. Toddlers will require supervision.

It is possible to unload the car outside the cottage; parking is available 50 yards away in the village car park (honesty box).

The harbourside village of St Mawesis about a 20 minute drive where a passenger ferry operates to the maritime town of Falmouth. The main shopping centres of Truroand St Austell are within easy reach as are many of the finest Cornish Gardens. including Caerhays Castle, the Lost Gardens of Heligan and The Eden Project.

Sleeps
Close
When a property shows 'sleeps' in the format X-Y, X equals the maximum number of adults that can comfortably be accommodated and Y indicates the maximum number of adults + children that can be comfortably accommodated in the property.
Customer Rating
Close
Our rating method, the popular "smiles" system is generated entirely by the feedback we receive from our visitors. The number of smiles is arrived at by taking the average grading given to the question:

How would you rate the cottage's fittings, furnishings and equipment?’

A property will achieve a rating of 5 Smiles down to 1 Smile, although it is our policy not to carry any properties with ratings lower than 3 Smiles. The customer chooses from the following ratings:
  1. Excellent
  2. Good
  3. Satisfactory
  4. Below standard
  5. Poor
There are a number of properties that have been recently added to our portfolio and these are graded "New".
Pets
Close
There is an extra charge for pets, most commonly at £24 pppw (per pet per week).

Assistance dogs are of course welcome in all our cottages free of charge, however owners of them should be aware that a considerable number of people are allergic to dogs and in some cases can have a severe reaction. Owners are therefore encouraged, where at all possible, to choose a property which normally allows pets.

Some properties accept pets other than dogs, but in all cases we are required to confirm consent from the cottage owner. Please contact the office on 01208 895 354 if you would like to take a pet other than a dog with you to one of our cottages.

Pricing information

All prices are per week per property. Many properties promote an all inclusive price although some charge for extras such as bed linen, towels, heating and/or electricity. The Property description will detail any extra charges.

Definitions

Booked: A customer has committed to a holiday period by paying a deposit or the full amount for a rental period.

Reserved: When a property is not yet available to be booked, a customer can 'Reserve' the property in their name on a first come first served basis. When Cornish Traditional Cottages and the owner have agreed availability and pricing for your selected period we will contact you to let you know if you can then book the property in your name. A Reservation does not guarantee a booking because the owner has first right of refusal on all availability.
Short breaks
Close
There are few better places to take a short break than in Cornwall. They can frequently be arranged, mainly out of season though, for periods to suit guest's particular requirements, but there is always a minimum rental, for practical reasons.

Cornwall in the early Spring is usually blessed with fine warm weather. It is this climate which brings out the wild flowers and spectacular gardens which make this time of year such an ideal one for a holiday. During July and August and other busy times of the year short break holidays are normally only available at short notice, but please enquire and we will do our best to accommodate you.

If short breaks are available, the cost of a short break is calculated as follows:
3 nights: 70% of weekly rental price
4 nights: 80% of weekly rental price
5 nights: 90% of weekly rental price
6 nights: 100% of weekly rental price

Reservations
Close
Weeks marked as 'Reserve' (highlighted in blue) can only be 'Reserved' (ie they cannot be booked) at this point in time because availability and prices have not yet been agreed with the owner. You can reserve these weeks in your name on a first come first served basis until availability and pricing has been agreed.

It is important to note that a 'Reserved' period can only be booked if the owner wishes to make the 'Reserved' period available for booking. Upon completion of your reservation you will receive confirmation by email or post containing details of the reservation.
