IMPORTANT INFORMATION: There are building works going on to the neighbouring property of Gull Cottage from April 2022 for approximately 18 months.

Rise and shine to panoramic views. Saunter down to the beach. Relax. Head back home, drop your beach gear in the wet room and barefoot across cool slate floors. Gull Cottage is waiting for you to make it yours.

Twist and turn down Cornish lanes and wind your way along the coast. Here, perched high above Porthcothan Bay, you’ll find Gull Cottage– modern, spacious and moments from the beach.

If you fancy a day at home, watch the kids hit the surf from your armchair in the conservatory or cosy up with a book in the study. However, if the Cornish air is calling cut along your private pathway across cliffs to the coastpath, or hop in the car and head out – without moments you’re in the wilds of North Cornwall. Unbeatable.
