Located in a prominent position overlooking Porthleven harbour and the iconic clock tower, Chapel Downs is the ideal property for a large family or small group of friends. Within walking distance to the harbour front, you’ll be spoilt for choice on places to eat and drink both during the day and in the evening. With reverse level accommodation, the first floor living room is a fantastic entertaining space. Extending the full width of the property, this room makes the most of the fantastic sea views, and has a cosy gas stove for those chilly winter nights.

Porthleven is a bustling fishing harbour in West Cornwall and offers a fantastic selection of top rated restaurants, including the famous Rick Stein’s and award winning Kota. The three mile stretch of sandy beach is popular with families and surfers. From here you can hop on the coastal path and take a walk around the scenic Loe Bar; a pretty woodland setting that is home to National Trust Penrose Estate.

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.
