It's enviable position in a quaint fishing village, with private parking 150 metres from the beach
Step out of your door and wander 150 metres down the path past pretty fishermen houses and gardens
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.

The Old Store was the perfect retreat for a week away. It is impeccably presented and full of all the things you could ever need for spending time away from home. The layout of the house is just fantastic. It's very clean and modern, with all the facilities you could ever need. We will definitely be staying here again in the future!

Being a matter of 150m from the sea, the local working Harbour really is on your doorstep, with fantastic coastal walks in either direction.

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 but the 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.
