Lovely quirky and charming bed and breakfast. Loved the old world charm of a small fisherman's cottage close to the beach. Comfortable, impeccably clean bed. Lovely breakfast but you might need a new saltcellar x

Stop your search - this is the place to stay! Completely charming cottage and lovely cosy room - the bed was amazing and after a very long walk along the coast I slept like a log. Chrissy is just fantastic - I wish I had more time to hang out with her. The perfect host and she cooked the best...

A warm and welcoming, cosy, cool cot in top location. Beautiful walks, breathing in the ozone, are on the doorstep and a breathtaking view of the sea, is on the top room. Everything has been thought of in this sweet cottage, from an amazingly comfortable bed where the sound of the waves lulls you to sleep, to the quality and...

We visited in early May with our dog, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The cottage is small and quirky, but has considerable charm. Our room was clean, pleasantly decorated, the bed very comfortable, and our hostess had clearly given a great deal of thought to every detail of what was on offer. Breakfasts were very good. The sea and pebble...

We stayed at the Mariners' Cottage while walking a stretch of the South West Coast Path. It was very accessible, right on the beach just a stone's throw away from the path. The cottage itself stands out when you're walking along the road with its bright murals. It's a tiny matchbox house built in 1640, according to Christina. It's full...

And what a treat it was. The Mariners Cottage is a cosy, welcoming retreat which is like a home from home. Chrissy, the owner, could not be more warm, friendly and accommodating. We were supposed to stay for just 2 nights, but extended our stay by 1 more day because we didn't want to leave. The rooms themselves are clean,...

Mariners' Cottage is the perfect B&B spot. Clean and comfy; friendly and welcoming. Christina treats you as one of the family; and serves up a delicious, fulfilling breakfast. The perfect location for seeing the Isle ~ leave the car at the door and walk. So much to enjoy; Portland is a gem! Alex & Elizabeth, Victoria, BC, Canada.

This b&b was recommended to us by the owner of another b&b that we had stayed in before but was fully booked. We had a warm welcome from Christina and her dog and offered a choice of room (there are only 2). Top room slightly smaller but you have a sea view over the sea wall (although Im 5ft so...
