At the cusp of the ocean, listen to the waves lapping the shore and the splash of Cornwall’s surf on the harbour wall. Let the waves be your lullaby.
Rarely can you be this close to the seashore without intending to paddling in it. Yet The Fish Sheds put you right on the shore in a light, bright, whitewashed cottage. Superbly positioned on West Portholland beach, this spacious and airy cottage is bigger than its beach frontage suggests too. From the outside, nods to its working past and remnants of its history as a functional building remain. The shutter-like doors that surround the fully glazed doors are just a hint at the characterful interiors that await your entry.
The sitting room is spacious with ample, comfy sofas and armchairs centering on a huge wood burner that roars with heat in the chilly winter months. It sits beneath one of those unwieldy original beams, left exposed as a hint to the origins of this beautiful building. Past the stairwell to the kitchen-diner, with its cottage feel and plentiful provision.
The Fish Sheds are situated on the historical Caerhays Estate with gothic style Caerhays Castle perched on the granite rock above on this glorious part of the Roseland Peninsula, also referred to as part of the Cornish Riviera. At low tide West Portholland Beach and East Portholland Beach change from being two separate Cornish coves to become one wide stretch of sand for you to explore.
Bedrooms and bathrooms
The first of three bedrooms at The Fish Sheds is on the ground floor and enjoys floor to ceiling glazed doors that open on to the private gravel area for your use immediately to the front of the property. From there the beach is, literally, on your doorstep. The room benefits from a double bed and dual aspect views of the beach and sea. The bathroom with shower over bath is located near the first bedroom on the ground floor. The central stairwell leads up first to a mezzanine bedroom with twin beds that is screened for added privacy and noise reduction. The second bedroom has a super king size bed that can also be separated into twin beds upon request.

This property was very nice, great setting with fantastic views.Mr Jon Clay - 29th August 2019
We have visited The Fishsheds many times. All enquiries with your team have been dealt with in a professional, competent and efficient manner. We have used this company on several occasions due to the excellent service received.Mr Anthony Bleakley - 24th September 2018
This is our 5th visit to the Fish Sheds and it is still very welcoming, like a second home. The location is second to none and it is always a little sad on the last day. But there is always next year. We are always on the lookout for nice properties in great locations but so far in Cornwall we haven’t found anything to beat the Fish Sheds for its unique location, quality of accommodation.Mr Stephen Sims - 22nd April 2018
I would recommend the company to anyone wishing to holiday in one of their locations/cottages. They are a very professional agency and booking is very easyMr Anthony Bleakley - 2nd April 2018
Beautiful property in a fantastic location. The Fish Sheds has been converted to a high standard and is looked after well - extremely clean and tidy and welcoming extras on arrival. Had a fab weeks stay at the Fish Sheds - booking was easy and straightforward and the property was better than we could have hoped for locationwise. Holiday was a birthday present which gave us the space to relax and unwind in peace and tranquility. Would love to live there but will have to settle for a return some time in the future.Miss Kerrie Houghting - 19th March 2018
