The best thing about:

The coastal interiors that are fused with a rustic and contemporary twist.

The walk to the beach

A mile down the road to Porthcothan beach, driving is advised.


Porthcothan is one of Cornwall's secret bays, a deep inlet surrounded by rocky headlands with a big expanse of sand at low tide. This tiny coastal village has a lovely hidden quality; it has remained largely undeveloped and provides an 'away from it all' feel perfect for couples.

As seen in Coast Mag, Lobster Pot is just one mile inland with at least 10 beaches all within a 5-20 minute drive from the cabin. You'll find nearby Porthcothan beach is quieter than many of the better-known beaches with a focus on playing on the sand and in the sea. Around the corner is the more popular Treyarnon Bay, with its beautiful golden sand and short scenic walk along the coastal path to the equally stunning Constantine Bay. Other nearby beaches include Mawgan Porth, Harlyn Bay and Mother Ivey's Bay.

St Merryn village is just 1.5 miles down the road, here you'll find Rick Stein's The Cornish Arms pub, The Olive tree restaurant, village shop, bakery,Waves surf school and a further small selection of shops. Padstow is also just a short drive from Lobster Pot, with its picturesque harbour and Rick Stein's famous Seafood Restaurant. In the other direction Watergate Bay is just 15 minutes away by car, with Newquay a little further on offering great shopping, beach activities and all kinds of cafes, pubs and restaurants to choose from.

Read an interview with Coast Magazine and owner/artist Susie Ray on how she used washed up beach items to inspire her unique interior design.

Guest comments

  • The Lobster Pot at Porthcothan Bay was the perfect setting for our minimoon. It was beautifully decorated, felt cosy, relaxed and we couldn't have wished for more. Walks around the nearby bays were also spectacular. We were so happy with our stay.
    JC, September 2019

  • Elegant and simple in design, the Lobster Pot is one of those special places where you can plan your adventure for the day and return to unwind in beautiful surroundings.
    JA, July 2021

  • Lobster Pot was a fantastic property, uniquely designed and furnished in a way which we loved. It was immaculately maintained and presented and was spotlessly clean. Plenty of space inside and out. Ideally located to many popular resorts, beaches and hidden coves. We will definitely be returning sometime soon.

  • We stayed at the Lobster Pot for a few days in May (13th - 16th ). Our first reaction on entering the property was 'Gobsmacked'. It was so quirky and original, but had all the modern comforts of home. The garden was fabulous and instead of eating out in the evenings, we couldn't wait to get back to enjoy a few glasses of fizz in the sun and a simple cooked meal outside on the decking with the lights Making it perfect. The surrounding area has the most beautiful coves and beach walks, and Padstow and Port Isaac are both worth a visit. We will be back to explore more of beautiful Cornwall.

  • Cleverly designed and superbly executed, this property is an ideal escape from everyday life, a true 'holiday' in every sense.

  • What an amazing holiday. Lobster Pot is simply magical. We absolutely loved it, from the beautiful decor and secluded, sunny and tranquil garden. You have thought of everything, loved the plancha. It's great to cook alfresco on a warm evenin. The wood burner was also a wonderful touch, but it wasn't cold enough to light it (next time!) The lobster Pot really is truly a little gem.
    MS, September 2018

  • Beautiful dog friendly cabin. Lovely decor and artwork. One of the best accommodations we have had the pleasure to stop in. Gorgeous secure garden for our Yorkies to have some freedom. Outdoor kitchen area perfect for sunny days and the veranda to sit under regardless of the weather. We would definitely recommend

  • Our stay at the Lobster Pot was fantastic! Amazing decor & beautiful garden, a lovely wood burner for cosy evenings in and a plancha grill for alfresco dining on warm evenings. It's certainly is a little gem!
    MY, September 2018

  • A superb little cabin with everything you need and more supplied. Cosy log burner for those cold evenings and lovely touches of wine and biscuits on arrival.
    LG, December 2018
