The utility/boot room has heating, a belfast sink, washing machine, tumble dryer, freezer and ample coat hooks & boot/shoe racks, ideal for drying beach or walking gear when the weather is less than kind. For dog owners this space is brilliant for cleaning up muddy paws before entry into the house!

The Old Butchers is a lovely cosy property with good amenities and a lovely feel to it. The boot room is perfect following a muddy walk!!
J McCraith
The accommodation is just perfect and so is the town of Porthleven. We would love to come back to the Old Butcher's but I think we will need to book early to avoid disappointment.

What a fantastic holiday we've just had staying at The Old Butchers. The cottage is lovely and is extremely well kitted out. Everything we needed was provided! The weather was chilly but we found The Old Butchers warm and cosy. The Old Butchers is well situated 5 mins walk from all that Porthleven has to offer. Our dog also had a lovely week too with even dog bowls and a treat provided! I would highly recommend The Old Butchers, we are planning our next trip!
