This lovely former fisherman’s cottage in Porthleven is ideal for couples or families looking for a peaceful coastal getaway. With panoramic sea views to Mounts Bay and across to the Lizard, this is the perfect sand-between-toes family getaway or walker’s paradise with access to the South West Coast Path in Porthleven. The sandy beach and sweeping bay are less than 100 metres away, and this fishing village with a working harbour is full of delightful eateries to try the day’s local catch.

A quaint and spacious two-storey property with light hues and elegant, contemporary furnishings that create a relaxing ambience. On the ground floor is a kitchen with everything you need to create your favourite dishes while enjoying the sea views. A lounge/dining area has lovely sofas and armchairs to rest up after a day and enjoy watching the Smart TV. A log burner effect electric fire keeps the room cosy while you take in the coastal view. Upstairs both bedrooms have a window seat to enjoy the views. One bedroom has a double bed and the other a large single bed. You will also find a bathroom with a shower. The garden is located across the road and has seating from which you can admire the panoramic views.

The surrounding area is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and the views from every cove or clifftop are picture-perfect. Nine miles away is the stunning Marazion Beach, where you can take your bucket and spades, enjoy water sports, eat ice cream and look over to the iconic St Michael’s Mount. You can also reach the tip of the Lizard Peninsula, Lizard Point (14 miles) and enjoy walking along the rugged coastal path. If you tire of the beach, head to Trebah Gardens (14 miles) and soak up the beauty of the subtropical plants that grow in this part of Cornwall.

Really lovely cottage with excellent fitments. Stunning views over to the huge sea. Great car parking area opposite and we enjoyed the secluded garden.

Loved watching the sun go down on our own terrace! Had a great week enjoying Porthlevan and the area. Don't miss the cove (check tides) and the walk to the Lizard. The Minak theatre &St Michaels Mount Restaurant.

A beautiful cottage in a perfect location. We loved the constancy of the sea, sparkling blue sunshine sea and churning green grey storm sea, its sound was both soothing and enlivening.

Cottage wonderful (again as always). Weather mainly soggy but amazing seas can we try again next year?

Enchanting cottage, spotlessly clean, cosy, comfortable with everything one could possibly want...gins and tonics on the terrace were a must every evening.

The cottage was very comfortable, situated on a quiet road very close to the sea. It was conveniently situated, being only about a 10 minute walk from the harbour with it's shops, restaurants and pubs.

Lampshade in bedroom needs to be raised - dangerous to tall people, I took it off. Sea thrift between flagstones on terrace needs removing - easy to trip over. Sunshade on terrace too small - won't cover 2 people in the shade at once - a second shade? kitchen/bathroom chemicals not out of reach of small kids - basic health and safety.
