In a quiet lane, just a pebble’s throw from the perfect, sandy beach of Porth, Wren’s Nest is a former sail loft which has been tastefully furnished and decorated and makes a wonderful coastal bolt hole to escape to. Quality hotel- grade bedding provided.
**Please note - the cottage does not come with parking. Free on road parking is available right outside Oct-May or approx 5mins walk away May-Sep.**

The space
Wrens Nest is a perfect example of an 18th century traditional Cornish fisherman's cottage- small but perfectly formed. They would have mended their nets with the boats pulled up outside and slept upstairs. It really is very small- think cabin-style but who cares with miles and miles of sandy beach and Atlantic coast outside. It's set just back from the beach, protected from winter storms in a little mews with 3 other cottages.

There are 1.5 bedrooms upstairs- 1 standard double and 1 cabin style bed not suitable for a large adult (2'6 x 5'9) plus a double sofabed in the lounge. It's not recommended for 3 adults or very large adults.

Important note re bathroom- It's old school. There is currently a small bathtub with enamel jug for rinsing off. No shower. There is a shower attachment but it's not very effective. We have always enjoyed this traditional cottage bathing experience but there have been a few comments from guests missing a shower. We are looking into this for the future.

Guest access
It's all yours, plus a flowerbed around the side of the cottage with herbs growing for your dinner (or cocktail..)

Check in at 4pm, check out 12 noon.

Other things to note
The stairs are steep- lots of friends have done it but we don't recommend it with toddlers. We hire hotel-quality freshly laundered cotton bedlinen each time- to ensure the best night's sleep.

Newquay, United Kingdom

Porth beach is safe and family-friendly, with a small coastal café, an excellent boutique and coffee shop, 2 traditional pubs (within 5 mins walk of the cottage) a deli up the road and world class restaurants nearby.
Porth is perfectly placed on the North Coast between Padstow, Watergate Bay and Newquay. Padstow and Watergate Bay are sports and foodie hotspots. Less well-known- Newquay is undergoing a food renaissance with the arrival of Rick Stein and many new independent cafés and seafood restaurants. Watergate and Newquay's Fistral Beach are some of the best surfing spots in the UK and Watergate is also great for kiteboarding.
