Nestled in the pretty fishing village of Portloe on the South Cornish coast, this darling escape for six is a wonderful seaside getaway overlooking the delightful harbour. Light, bright interiors offer stylish, laid-back charm, whilst you're also just a 100-yard walk to the harbour and great places to eat. Set in the heart of the Roseland peninsula, you're surrounded by some of the most beautiful coastline Cornwall has to offer with plenty of things to see and do, whether it's coastal walks, subtropical gardens, excellent eateries or swimming in crystal clear waters.
Special 'Just for Two' rate

A special 'Just For Two' rate applies if there are only two guests staying and the discount is 20%. This offer is only available outside of school holidays, peak weeks, bank holidays, Christmas and New Year. Please call the office on 01872 553 491 if you have any queries or would like to book.


The open plan living space can be found on the top floor, where vaulted ceilings, masses of windows and gorgeous décor has created a peaceful, serene escape boasting wonderful sea views. Bi-fold windows at the far end of the room can be pulled back on warmer days to let the blissful sea breezes in, whilst the Cocoon bio-fuel burner adds a cosy ambience. We just love the opulent teal velvet sofas, whilst the smooth wooden floor is just a dream to walk on.


Towards the back of the house on the top floor you'll find the kitchen, a sleek, contemporary space in which to prepare epic feasts and on-the-hoof snacks. With quartz worktops, grey cabinets and Smeg appliances, this is just a dream to cook in. With underfloor heating too, things will be fabulously snug and cosy around the large oak dining table for six - the perfect setting for decadent dinner parties.


There are three stunning bedrooms to choose from, two of which can be found on the middle level. The master bedroom is a beautifully bright, light and tranquil room boasting three windows, all with sea views. The king size bed is super-comfy, just made for long lie-ins and breakfast in bed. The second bedroom with double bed is super romantic and has an en suite. The third bedroom can be found on the ground floor and is a delightfully cosy double with gorgeous mustard-colour headboard.


There's a fabulous bathroom with a walk-in rainfall shower. The en suite has a gorgeously deep free-standing tub for two. Both have heated rails to keep towels warm and fluffy and underfloor heating for extra cosiness.


Between the 1st October to the 31st May there is on-street parking on the road Fable is located on. This is subject to spaces on the road being available in the usual way, of course. Between June to September, you'll find parking in the nearby village car park, which is only a very short walk away (3 to 4 minutes), and has an honesty box for any parking donations.

In the Area

Portloe is a gorgeous little village and is one of the prettiest spots on the Roseland Peninsula. The Ship Inn, a 17th century pub, is just a short walk from Fable and ideal for drinks and a spot to eat. The Lugger Hotel is another 17th century inn, also within a short walk, offering excellent local produce and the freshest of fish. With the Roseland on your doorstep there's plenty to see and do - make sure to try the culinary delights of The Hidden Hut at Portcurnick beach, whist if you carry on, you'll find Portscatho, a lovely seaside village, and St Mawes - a great spot for some lunch at either The Idle Rocks or the Tresanton, both of which are excellent with views over the harbour. From here you can catch the ferry across to the bustling seaside town of Falmouth for great shops and the must-visit Maritime Museum. Garden-lovers will enjoy Trelissick Gardens near the King Harry Ferry or The Lost Gardens of Heligan, whilst if you need a spot of city life, head to Truro with its wide selection of independent shops, impressive cathedral and great restaurants.
