The Details

  • Location

    Where is it?

    The Old Store sits right in the heart of the picture-postcard village of Portloe on the Roseland Peninsula in south Cornwall. Described as "one of the least spoiled and most impressive of Cornish villages", The Old Store is less than 100 metres from the small harbour and beach, popular for swimming, stand-up paddleboarding and kayaking. This unspoilt fishing village is a genuine 'escape from it all' destination, away from the crowds.

    Portloe lies within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and was once a thriving fishing village in the 17th century. By the 18th century, due to its remoteness, the village had become a hotspot for smugglers, with the local inn keeper being sent to the gallows for smuggling French Brandy. This inn is now called The Lugger, where guests can dine, sip ales and learn more about Cornwall's smuggling history. Today, fishermen still land crab and lobster, and the harbour has been used for filming in the classics 'The Camomile Lawn' and 'About time'.

    Locally, you can walk the coastal path to the stunning Nare Head and Portholland. Along the Nare Head route, ramble past the restored Cold War Nuclear Bunker and enjoy beautiful views of the entire length of the Roseland coast path and over The Whelps Reef. A short drive takes you to Portscatho, home of the Hidden Hut, Caerhays Castle and beach, St. Mawes, Gorran Haven, Mevagisssey and the Lost Gardens of Heligan.

Guest Reviews

"Location was great - stones throw from the coastal path and right next to the lovely Ship Inn and Lugger Hotel. Not far to drive to nice beaches. Super quiet location which is what we wanted. We had a small baby which was fine as we put her in a sling for walks. We left our dog with family on this occasion but would bring her next time as the property is dog friendly and she would have loved the coastal path."

"The Old Store was lovely. Perfect for winter when there are not a lot of people around. The fire was great, bed comfortable and all the amenities worked perfectly. It's a great area with plenty to explore and good, if muddy walking."
I Poynter, December 2020
"The Old Store is a great place to stay. Portloe is beautiful, the house is so close to the sea and with amazing walks along the coast. There was a lovely hamper of goodies when we arrived, which we much appreciated. When we had a problem with the wood-burning stove, Flint management company were very helpful. The kitchen was very well equipped with everything we needed to cook. We had a great week and would definitely stay here again.
