Cottage | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 7

The Old Pilchard Press is a unique property which due to its location and internal appointment evokes a strong feeling of beach house freedom and barefoot carefree holidays. Built over 150 years ago to process and barrel the locally caught Pilchards landed directly in front of the cottage, this charming and quirky conversion has wonderful views of Mounts Bay, St. Michaels Mount and the Lizard Peninsula in the distance. To the front of the property is a large decked area which is perfect for that early morning pot of coffee in the sunshine as you watch the bustling commercial fishing port of Newlyn wake up and go about its daily business. Currently supporting the second largest fishing fleet in the UK, there is a constant and interesting flow of traffic in and out of the port and Harvey's, one of the largest suppliers of local fresh shellfish are located to the left of the property and you can wander down to the cleaning and holding tanks and even negotiate your own fresh Lobster or Crab for supper!

Decorated in white with wood floors throughout, the owners have ensured that the Old Pilchard Press is very much 'beach house' in its appointment rather than beach hut and therefore whilst it exudes informal and laid back living, it has every creature comfort that you would expect in a modern holiday home. The cottage has granite steps leading down from the garden to the parking area providing access to the rocky beach which is only 100 yards across common ground, a favourite spot for local bass fishermen particularly in the early evening, so bring your rod and have a go!

THIS PROPERTY CAN BE BOOKED FOR SMALLER PARTIES AT REDUCED RATES, WITH THE EXCEPTION OF PEAK WEEKS. PLEASE TELEPHONE 0843 104 0823 FOR FURTHER DETAILS.
