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.


Excellent property right in the heart of the harbour. Lovely place to stay.Mr Richard Hornbrook - 22nd October 2018
This is the best property we have ever stayed in, it was such a lovely property in an amazing location. Unbeatable, and exceptionally clean too.Ms K Baker - 16th September 2018
Excellent place to stay in every way. Mr ANDREW MELLOR - 2nd July 2018
5 Star property in 5 Star location. Could not have wished for any more. Second time we have stayed here and it was just as we remembered, beautifully furnished and could not wish for a better location. Rather than staying in a holiday let it feels as if we are borrowing a friends property for a week. It feels so comfortable and homely that it really is sad to have to leave. We could not have wished for anywhere better so many thanks.Mr Mark English - 19th March 2018
What fantastic accommodation…Porthleven is a beautiful place with lovely, friendly people.Janet, Karl, Emily and David
Third time here, just as good, lovely place to stay with everything just right. Thanks for the wine and sharing this lovely apartment again.Gill and Chris, Portishead
