The Cottage

Low ceilings and an exposed granite wall create an unmistakeably homely feel as soon as you enter the property – sink into the enveloping corner sofa and stoke up the fire to ward off rainy days. When the sun’s out, bask in the lawned garden – encircled by hedgerows sprinkled with colourful flowers, this private space begs for barbecues.

With a bunkroom downstairs perfect for younger residents and two bedrooms upstairs, Green is well set up to cater for a young family.

Our Favourite Thing

The leafy walk towards St. Nicholas church – intertwined tree branches enclose the walkway in a peaceful green patchwork.

The Location

Cross the road to the echium-lined path onto Green Porth – its white sand stretches from a cluster of cottages at one end to Blockhouse Castle at the other. Follow the watery channels across wet sands at low tide for a paddle.

The Ruin Beach Café is just minutes away – take a coffee break on its glorious sun terrace or enjoy a wood fired pizza for dinner.
