Nare’s Yard | Luxury Self-Catering Hideaway | Portloe, Roseland

Nare´s Yard

Portloe, The Roseland Peninsula, Cornwall, UK

Tucked away on the Roseland Peninsula, where rolling fields lead to tranquil coastal vistas, nestles a unique self-catering hideaway where beautiful simplicity and natural materials echo the outside world. With a hot tub and al fresco roll top bath, this indulgent couple's retreat just a stone's throw from Portloe is designed with relaxation - spa escape style - in mind.  


Built with the finest craftsmanship, fusing a pared-back simplicity with a rustic edge, Nare’s Yard is a modern luxury hideaway perfect for those seeking a back-to-nature self-catering escape. Affording an opportunity to reconnect and re-energise, lazy mornings can be spent luxuriating with a garden view, before heading out on foot to explore the beautiful coastline of the Roseland Peninsula. Open-plan light-filled living, where interiors combine a mid-century influence with a modern aesthetic, Nare's Yard is as idyllic a summer retreat as a snug winter abode. 


Light the woodburner and cosy up fireside after windswept winter walks. With a cool, understated style-led edge, Nare’s Yard is a tranquil, retreat-led home. Open-plan light-filled living spaces combine with rolling hill views, pottery collections and one-off finds in this modern rustic abode, where a luxe edge reigns. With in-house well-being treatments and massages available, you’re assured of a de-stress escape where you have the time to reconnect. If it’s less romantic retreat and more family adventures you crave, there's a bunk room available in addition to the master suite for group gatherings. 


With glowing festoon lights, ancient olive, cherry and plum trees frame the architecturally-designed outside space at Nare’s Yard. From the outdoor barbecue fire, to bathing under the stars or sharing a sun-downer in the hot tub. If the call of the Cornish coast summons you, Portloe flaunts a Mediterranean-esque sandy beach at low tide, while the South West Coast Path offers unrivalled views across this little-travelled area of The Roseland Peninsula in Cornwall.

From the owner

“Nare’s Yard has been lovingly converted to create a real escape-from-it-all escape.As idyllic for couples seeking sanctuary as family-led self-catering breaks, indulgent hot tub soaks frame end of day fresh-air forays.”

From the owner

As a hard-working dairy farming family with two boys, we need to relax well when we're on down-time, and we built Nare’s Yard just to create an escape from our busy everyday lives. With this in mind, the house was designed to provide immediate relaxation on arrival with natural finishes of high-end quality.

We like to think that here is a place where our grown-up guests can switch off from the everyday, whether as a couple or with little ones in tow, our aim was to create a haven where guests can reconnect with nature and each other. 

Nare’s Yard is the perfect base from which to explore the Roseland Peninsula; whether you head out on foot along the coast path, boat watch at St Mawes or head further afield to enjoy all that Cornwall has to offer.

We encourage all visitors to have a restorative break, and we are on hand should you need anything!

We´ve thoroughly enjoyed our week away in Cornwall. Nare’s Yard is beautiful and restful and the Roseland Peninsula is spectacular. The highlights of our stay were cooking fresh lobster, scallops and mussels all of which are so good from the farm shop, coffee and cake to kick start the day, and daily outdoor showers - even in the rain! We would love to return one day.

Our family enjoyed staying at Nare’s Yard for our vacation. The service from both Unique Homestays and the property owner were perfect and responsive. The property is perfectly located combining a private setting and close to nature experience. The cows saying good morning to you from the adjacent field is lovely! Centrally located within Cornwall, we explored areas from Truro to St Ives, while the path across the field brings you to Portloe and joins the coastal path, so great to explore on foot too!
