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 those wanting to get away from it all.

As featured in Coast Magazine and The Times, Strand Line is just one mile inland, a short drive from the village of St Merryn where guests will find a handful of Cornish pubs and restaurants, perfect for an evening tipple and bite to eat with the locals.

There are eleven beaches all within a 5-20 minute drive from the cabin, including your local beach, Porthcothan. You'll find this 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, a beautiful golden sanded beach with a coast path leading to panoramic views over Constantine Bay.

Just a short drive from Strand Line is Padstow, with its picturesque harbour and Rick Steins Seafood Restaurant. Watergate Bay and Jamie Oliver's Fifteen Cornwall Restaurant are just 15 minutes away by car and Newquay a little further, with great shopping, beach activities and all kinds of cafes, pubs and restaurants.

Guest comments

  • Strand line was in every way an absolute delight. A fantastic location for ease of access to many beaches and the delights Cornwall offers. The property itself was a sanctuary, lovingly and creatively designed. Contemporary, up cycled furniture adds wonderfully to this unique, immaculate, well equipped haven. A place that I would be proud to call home. Lovely welcome wine, flowers, Cornish biscuits.

  • Strand line was just a piece of heaven , such a cute place to stay, perfect for two couples with two en suites, large open living space and amazing outside space with the plancha grill which was a huge added bonus. Never have we stayed in such an eclectic, well thought out, well equipped cabin, that the owners have obviously given so much thought to. We will definitely recommend this beautiful amazing place..

  • Strand line was everything we had hoped for. Spotlessly clean, comfy beds and everything you need for a week away. It was also perfectly located to visit great beaches and walk along the beautiful coastline.

  • We knew before we unlocked Strandline the first time we stayed that we would return and it was an absolute joy to be back (a year later than expected). This was a wonderful week (of course the perfect weather helped!) after the confines of lockdown. We'll be back to stay at Strandline again…

  • We loved the house! It's in a perfect location for exploring the north coast beaches and has the comfiest beds we've ever slept in!!

  • What an amazingly tranquil holiday haven Strand Line is - it is exactly as we expected (or even better!) We all loved it. It was a dream and we can't wait to go back.

  • We absolutely loved our holiday at Strandline. We couldn't of wished for a better place to be, Olli and Susie have been the best hosts and have looked after everything.
    EB, June 2019

  • Absolutely loved our stay! What a place to stay on our first visit to Cornwall. Very warm welcome from Ollie and much appreciated the welcome pack and he recommended some trips and restaurants and all were spot on! he cabin was warm, spotless, beautifully decorated, comfy beds, hot water and wow that outdoor plancha grill!! Loved the area too, stunning coastal walks and a different beach each day. Our 8 year old daughter said it was the best holiday ever and she's been lucky enough to travel all over!

  • First impressions: WOW! Attention to detail was second to none. The exterior and interior were of such a high standard and quality, it exceeded all our exceptions - which were high to begin with. Ollie was a delight to chat to and get to know, the perfect host. The whole experience was actually perfect, I can't think of a single improvement.
    NB, September 2019

  • We stayed in Sept/Oct 2019 and loved it so much that we booked again for March 2020, and it still has the same wow factor!! Fantastic location, spotlessly clean, comfortable and well equipped, lovely hosts. What more could you ask for?
