The Cottage

Indoors, high ceilings, light airy rooms and exposed beams convey the property’s spaciousness. Four bedrooms provide ample room for larger groups or multi-generational families.

The real showstopper is the sun room and the epic views it takes in - the sweep of beach across to Blockhouse Castle will take your breath away.

The Location

You’ll likely spend many holiday moments enjoying the white sands of Green Porth, from idyllic high tide swims to sunny afternoon naps on your beach towel.

For dinner, head to the Ruin Beach Cafe just along the coast and embrace warm evenings with a table on the terrace.
