About Quin Cottage

A traditional seaside holiday awaits in this former fisherman’s cottage just metres from the beach.

Quin Cottage is one of two former fisherman’s cottages located just moments from the sea. The cottage benefits from a private garden and a tiny fjord reveals a beach at low-tide. Inside, you’ll find bright and airy interiors with cool cream walls, wood flooring and a modern bathroom. 

Swing open the stable door and breathe in a healthy dose of fresh sea air before exploring the beautiful area around Port Quin.

Hop on to the South West Coast Path for hikes to the higgledy-piggledy lanes of Port Issac or west to sandy surfing beach, Polzeath. The more adventurous might want to discover the coast via kayak and explore some of the areas many caves.  We’ll provide secure storage if you’d like to bring your own kayak.

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.
