The seaside house from About Time is now available on Airbnb

One of our favourite movie houses ever.

Fancy getting away from it all at an idyllic seaside hideaway fit for a movie-style romance? We know just the spot.

The gorgeous house from Richard Curtis’s About Time is now available to rent on Airbnb.

In case your memory needs refreshing, the 2013 flick centres around Tim (Domhnall Gleeson) who, upon turning 21, finds out that all of the men in his family have the ability to travel through time. Tim decides to use his gift to help him in his love life, with varying degrees of success.

The movie is sweet and funny and sad and lovely – and much of it takes place in Tim’s family home, a beautiful  house with stunning views of the sea in Cornwall.

The real property, Porthpean House in the town of St Austell, has been owned by the same family for five generations. They’re now opening it up to guests who want to immerse themselves in the world of About Time‘s Tim, Mary and co.

“Ideal for family beach holidays, sailing, kayaking, rock-pooling/foraging, coastal walks,” the Airbnb page states.

“Set in beautiful mature camellia gardens, Porthpean House is the ultimate retreat for large house parties, romantic weddings and family anniversaries.”

The house sleeps up to 21 people and can cost up to £9,450 per week, depending on the time of year. Despite the price, it’s clearly very popular – except for a few days in November the house is booked on Airbnb right up until the end of June 2020.
