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.


WHERE IS IT?

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 and Jamie Oliver's Fifteen Cornwall Restaurant are 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

  • Fantastic place! Very well appointed accommodation in a great location for access to beaches and coastal walks. Would happily book again and recommend to others.
    PAQ, June 2018

  • Best place we have stayed in. We had a fantastic time and Porthcothan Bay was our favourite. Sitting outside in the morning was lovely, some days we found it hard to leave as it was so tranquil. We will be back.
    AD, July 2018

  • The property was fantastic - well designed and thought out. Not many places make you feel at home the moment you step inside but this did immediately. Couldn't fault it.
    DR, August 2018

  • The property was absolutely beautiful with everything that you need and want for a relaxing holiday. The location was perfect for beautiful beaches and restaurants. Thank you we will definitely visit again
    BH, August 2018

  • Wonderful owners, great property and lots of privacy enabled me to have the most relaxing and fulfilling stay. Thank you.
    SP, August 2018

  • 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

  • Best place we've stayed in Cornwall. Can't wait to return.
    ETM, September 2018

  • 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
