Sleep with the soothing sound of waves lapping on the shore and potter barefoot through the garden to the beach. With uninterrupted views over the sheltered south coast of Cornwall, Porthpean House is the ultimate retreat for large house parties, romantic weddings and family anniversaries.

In the Petherick family for five generations, it has a relaxed old fashioned charm and a laid back atmosphere. Set amidst acres of tranquil gardens, just above the beach, it was the perfect location for the Richard Curtis Film 'About Time'. Porthpean House sleeps up to 21 people with glorious bedrooms, many overlooking the sea, blissful for relaxed holidays as well as formal occasions.
