We had a fantastic stay at Porthminster Mews. The living space allowed plenty of room for four adults, was clean, well stocked and had a lovely calm feel. The view was stunning and location perfect being 10 minutes walk to a beautiful beach or the town and harbour where everything was within easy reach.
