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.


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!Steve, Jackie and George - 8th September 2018
Fantastic week, spent in a beautiful home, in a stunning location! Enjoyed drinking Sloe Gin on the patio, watched the sun set! (So many stars!).

A fabulous holiday in a beautiful part of the world. Great property in a superb location. Loved every minute!Miss Susan Townend - 6th August 2018
This is a fantastic property in a beautiful location - we liked the fact that this has been a family home, so comfortable with spectacular sea views. Above Beach Cottages certainly know their stuff & have a good portfolio of properties in lovely locations.Mrs J Fountain - 4th June 2018
We had a wonderful week in this delightful property. It overlooked the Cornish coast and was within walking distance of coastal paths of outstanding beauty and also the picturesque harbour town of Porthleven. We visited many fantastic places including Penrose Hill, Sennen Cove and the surrounding Penzance area, the Isles of Scilly, Helston, Poldu Cove, Gunwalloe Cove, Loe Bar, Mullion Cove and the Lizard Light house. Locally there were a wide variety of places to eat out for any occasion. A very friendly and welcoming house and location. A lot of thought has gone into providing outstanding accommodation of a very high standard for '1 Highburrow'. Thank you!Mrs M Ryan - 30th May 2018
Wonderfully well equipped house. Very much appreciated waiting cream tea, bottle of cider and flowers - also very generous provision of bath and shower potions. Mrs Ruth Foulds - 8th May 2018
Had a good week. First time in the cottage. Children loved the conservatory. Loved staying here - very well equipped.The Mills family, Coventry - 28th October 2017
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely peaceful location. The welcome pack and the well equipped property were ideal. Coming in October the property was lovely and warm - plenty of hot water - rough seas to enhance the views - what more can I say.Trevor & Diana, Cheltenham - 18th October 2017
