Where the road runs out in Bohortha you will find a cluster of cottages and a couple of farms. Mizpah is a charming fisherman’s cottage, at the end of a row of four, double fronted with white rendered front elevations.
There is little to intrude on this unspoilt area with no crowds and very little traffic. Bohortha is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with a spectacular coastline and numerous beaches. From Mizpah you can walk to St Anthony’s Head with its famous lighthouse or down to Porthbeor beach (5 mins). Alternatively follow the footpath to Place Quay (10 mins) where the ferryman will take you across to St Mawes (summer only). Portscatho, 2.5 miles away, is a pretty village with good local shops and two pubs.
Downstairs the cottage has a sitting room with television and open log fire. The dining room has both the original flagstone floor and cast iron and brass range including bread oven (not in use!). There is an oak refectory table with six chairs and a sideboard.
