“A Fantastic Holiday House”

Cliff Garden is a lovely house which is cosy, but spacious and extremely well equipped. The kitchen has absolutely everything one could need. The bathrooms, en suite and main, are large and were spotless.The shower in the main bathroom is huge! Bedding, towels etc were very high quality. Separate sitting room and dining room, lovely woodburners. 3 bedrooms have loads of hanging space. Large entrance hall and snug which gave amazing space to dry off dogs and people! A garden which towers over the village to give views to die for. All this and a lovely home made cake as a welcome. First class-and helpful, friendly owner to liaise with whilst booking.

“Fabulous House in Portloe”

We frequently stay in self catering accommodation. This house is one of the best- cosy and homely but clean and well presented. The beds, beddings, towels are of excellent quality. The kitchen is so well equipped, I could find nothing wanting! The hall space is great for wellies, wet dogs etc. It is sufficiently spacious for 2 couples to spread out for privacy and would be equally sufficient for an extra 2! The bathroom is huge with fantastic, deluge shower- hot water available constantly. The en suite and downstairs loo very convenient.The garden is AMAZING- highest viewpoint in the village!! Home made cake on arrival was “the icing”! Thank you, Fiona, for a wonderful holiday. Excellent location for beach combing, cliff top walks and pub lunches- love, love it !!

“Great Stay”

We found this a very interesting property which was really clean and comfortable. Part of the property has been converted from a lime kiln and there are sea views from all rooms .The garden is exciting to explore and has it’s own canon (not tested!). There was a superb quality cake when we arrived.

“Peaceful Break”

Really enjoyed staying in this beautiful cottage in a picturesque and quiet village. Lasting memory will be sitting on the bench outside the front door watching the waves. So peaceful.


Comfortable, well equipped and well positioned. Best things: Location and 2 bathrooms (3 loos). Overall a lovely place, accurately described and very comfy.

“Secret Garden”

Wonderful property in a lovely location! The description for Cliff Garden did not do it justice – the house is lovely, very spacious, yet cosy and very nice d├ęcor. Kitchen had everything you could possibly need and the wood burning stove was lovely to snuggle up in front of. The views from the house are magical. The garden was a delight – a new view round every twist and turn of the path, and just carried on up the hill. It felt like discovery your own secret garden! A real gem. Portloe itself is a lovely village – wonderfully remote. Would recommend both the Ship Inn – very friendly landlord and also The Lugger. The New Inn at Veryan was also good for food and very cosy with a lovely fire! Would recommend for families and also couples wanting a romantic getaway. We shall be back!


I had the most wonderful time whilst staying at Cliff Garden. It’s a very relaxing place where one can really enjoy the peace and quite of the countryside, long coastal walks and nearby beaches all on it’s door step. The house itself is very spacious with two large rooms and a smaller room great for kids. I especially liked the garden at the top of the house which has the greatest views. I would really recommend this place for a family get away or even for a romantic time away for two. I have been there with my boyfriend as well as on a family holiday. The locals are also very friendly and welcomed us with happy smiles. Thanks for an amazing time! Can’t wait to come back.

“Fab Family Holiday”

We thoroughly recommend this beautiful cottage. There were handy extras for our 6 month old baby and had all that we needed for cooking using the delicious local foods we bought. Excellent walks literally on our doorstep and stunning beaches minutes down the road. Fab family fun!
