The property

*NEW MASTER BEDROOM EN-SUITE FOR 2021* Cartaway Cove is set in a divine clifftop position surrounded by its own gardens. Outstanding panoramic sea views, over the valley, Port Gaverne and Port Isaac can be enjoyed from this idyllic self-catering holiday cottage. With its southerly aspect soaking up all available sunshine and located just a step off the glorious South West coastal path, it is ideal for holidaying all year round. Cartway Cove is only a few minutes walk to the seashore and 17th century Port Gaverne Inn and is a perfect seaside retreat for a large family sleeping 6 in 3 bedrooms with 2 bathrooms & Master bedroom en-suite A large west-facing window takes advantage of spectacular sunsets over the sea. Make use of the garden furniture on the slate paved terrace for family meals on warm days whilst soaking up the sun and sea air. Children will love the pretty little summerhouse where young homemakers can play imaginary games. A wooden decked balcony joins the colourful kitchen/dining /living room and there are squidgy sofas to relax on, if the weather draws you inside. There's a King size bed on the first floor, with zip and link twin beds on the ground floor which can be converted to form a very sizeable Super King bed and a third bedroom with a double and single bed.Port Gaverne is now a tranquil and unspoilt cove, but evidence of an industrious past is evident in the building and structures all round; from loading lime-rich sea sand and pilchards, then transportation of slate and finally simply a peaceful spot for locals and visitors to enjoy. The coastal path from the beach uses the road briefly at Cartway Cove then follows the the dramatic cliffs drop down onto Trebarwith Strand which is a serious and arduous walk, not for the faint hearted but a fantastic challenge for seasoned walkers. Trebarwith Strand, less than a 20-minute drive away, is a popular surfing spot at any time of the year. In the other direction Polzeath is another boogie-boarding and surfing destination and only a 15-minute drive away.Ground Floor Open Plan Living/Dining Room/Kitchen, Bed 2: 3ft zip & link twins or Super King size (6' x 6'6), Bed 3: Double bed and single bed, Bath/W.C., Shower/W.C., Utility room The bed configuration will be made up as per the description. If you require the beds to be made up differently, please inform us at least 7 days prior to your arrival date. First Floor: Bed 1: King Size bed (5ft) en-suite bathroom Sorry No Pets. See Instagram @cartwaycoveandcabin for more photos.

About the location


Polzeath 6.5 miles; Padstow 16 miles

Port Isaac; one of the true Cornish treasures. A beautiful fishing village nestling in a steep sided valley, the old village in the valley remains unchanged from its days of fishing, slate export and smuggling in the previous century. An abundance of small character properties complemented by larger cliff-top retreats, can be found with easy access to the numerous restaurants and shops of the village. The sandy harbour provides an abundance of rock pools as the tide retreats. There is ample parking at the top of the village and the village is a popular tourist destination with plenty of attractions including the dramatic Doyden Castle, the beautiful Lundy Bay and the famous Doc Martin's clinic. There are also plenty of pubs, restaurants, and shops in the village. Just a short drive from the beaches of Polzeath, Daymer and Rock, it is perfect for romantic and family holidays alike.
