Local Area

Set on the west coast of the spectacular Lizard Peninsula, the little harbour town of Porthleven is the quintessential Cornish fishing port. Centred around the harbour, it boasts an array of cafés, restaurants and galleries and exudes a chilled, relaxed atmosphere. Porthleven is the most southerly working port in the UK, with fishing boats operating out of the harbour. This makes the town a great spot to enjoy some delicious seafood, straight from the fishing boats to the restaurants, it couldn’t be fresher!

Porthleven beach can be accessed from the town itself and provides a long expanse of sand which is separated into segments by several rocky outcrops. While away the glorious summer days relaxing on the beach with a locally made ice cream in hand!

Situated part way along a huge sweeping bay, it faces the Atlantic Ocean and is often on the receiving end of some mighty winter storms! A fabulous destination for a winter break; marvel at the awe-inspiring waves pounding the harbour walls from the cosy safety of the local pub!

The surrounding area doesn’t disappoint either; located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the views from every cove or clifftop are picture-perfect. Travel north-west and you’ll reach Marazion, home of St Michael’s Mount – an absolute ‘must’. South takes you to the tip of the Lizard Peninsula, Lizard Point, one of Cornwall’s most iconic spots.

You won’t tire of the walks and stunning scenery, but if you fancy a day out, try the Seal Sanctuary, Flambards or Trebah Gardens. Or, go a little further afield and you can explore Penzance, Land’s End and St Ives.


Fantastic house in a fantastic location!! Our 4th stay in Porthleven. This is by far the best house with the best views!Luke, Julie, Dani, Ash, Eddie, Chris & John - 2nd November 2018
Lovely house in an excellent position. This is our fifth stay in Porthleven. We love it. The Loe Bar and walk to it are both beautiful. We tried the kayaking and paddle boarding this year rather than just watching, it was really good fun. Bought a beautiful sea bass from fisherman at the harbour and barbecued it at the house. A great stay.Mrs Jane Evans - 1st August 2018
This was the third time we stayed at this property and we have had a great time on each visit. Porthleven has everything and there really is no need to go anywhere else!Mrs Jayne Jones - 10th July 2018
