Reviews

Very clean and well appointed. An excellent holiday cottage.

Mrs Sheena M,

Porthleven is a wonderful little place to stay & 1 Highburrow is in the perfect location for walks, the beach, the port. Just a lovely place to spend a holiday. We will definitely be back.

Mr Ian M,

A truly charming and beautiful house, in one of the most enviable positions we've witnessed. The house had a welcoming feel from the moment we put the key in the door, a special that we left reluctantly, after making so many special memories as a family. The local area was outstanding and offered all we needed in terms of water sports, boat trips, pubs, restaurants and alike.

Mr Michael C,

The holiday property felt like home from home with all home comforts. Good facilities, plenty of space and equipment, lovely sea views. The house had plenty of parking and it was an easy walk into Porthleven.

Mrs Barbara D,

A very comfortable and extremely well equipped property. Wonderfully well located, with beautiful sea views, right by coastal walk and Loe Bar/The Penrose Estate and just a few minutes walk into the lovely town of Porthleven with all its shops, cafes. restaurants and galleries.

Mrs Ruth F,

Thank you so much for enabling us to stay in your wonderful home! We enjoyed every minute, had lovely weather and a brilliant holiday! We spent all of our time in and around Porthleven it was that good. Pubs, walks, beach, days we will remember always!

Map

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.
