About Porth Mear Cottage

This traditional Cornish cottage has views for miles over countryside and out to Trevose Head.

Adjoining Pentire Farm House is Porth Mear Cottage, a traditional Cornish stone building situated just inland from Park Head. The cottage boasts stunning views over the surrounding countryside, all the way to the lighthouse at Trevose Head.

Step out of the French doors to the garden for an alfresco breakfast before joining the coastal path just metres from your door. Follow the path down to Porth Mear Cove, a secluded rocky inlet only accessible on foot.

For the nearest sandy beach head to Porthcothan which is just a mile away from here. Or for a bit of historical culture head to Trerice House and Lanhydrock. With your stay at Porth Mear Cottage we can continue to look after these special places for generations to come.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
