Room 2 has a view from not only the room but the bathroom! I slept with the windows open and could hear the sea all night. It was exactly what I was looking for. Samantha was so nice and cooked wonderful breakfast. Most beautiful place I've ever seen

This is just our kind of place. As other reviews have said, the location is superb and the views are stunning. We stayed for 3 nights ... wish it could have been longer. Ok so, the building looks a little worn in places ... but it is very remote and get's the full blast of Atlantic South-Westerlies. We found out... More

I stayed here for one night whilst walking the south west coast path. The location is unbeatable, the view stunning and it is lovely to fall asleep with the sound of the sea and the walk into Porthleven in the evening is easy. However I must agree with other contributors that a bit of tlc is needed. I know the... More

We found this beautiful house by accident and spent a great night in this lovely B&B. We fell in love with the scenery. But it is not just the surroundings. The house and room are very clean, quiet and luxurious.

Fabulous place, lovely views. Room we stayed in was nicely decorated and comfortable. Bit of a walk into town but nice to be in such a peaceful secluded place. Found the owners friendly and helpful. Had a lovely walk along the cliff path. Will visit again next year.

Incredible spot. Very friendly host. Our room was large and the bed very comfortable. The bathroom was great and lovely powerful shower. The breakfast was delicious and there was plenty of choice. The location is amazing and I can't wait to revisit!

The House is well placed, grand unhindered view over the sea. But the house is in need of some refurbishment (e.g. windows wedged, paint, door lock distorted or even inoperative). Would have been nice, if the room would be cleaned once in a while. Duvet an pillows are cloggy.

Booked last minute for one night as we were having dinner in Porthleven. Called up the week before and luckily they had one room left. And what a room it was! Room 1 at the front with an amazing view over the sea. We were really lucky with the weather - blue sky and sun - but it would still... More

Came here as guests of Origin Coffee who have a wonderful little coffee shop in the village and a Roastery just out of town (amazing coffee by the way). Stayed with 3 colleagues and we were all blown away by the incredible location. Having driven down from Bath we immediately just wanted to explore and take in the view. It's... More

Fabulous location with wonderful views. Few frills but typically Cornish - if the sun's out, relax and enjoy - if the sun's not out, just relax. Frayed around the edges - yes, the property needs a little TLC - only to be expected in such an exposed location. Finger-lickin' good breakfasts - perfectly poached eggs - worth dying for! Family...
