Cliff Top Cottage is a New England styled cottage located on the popular Loe Bar road, just moments from Porthleven beach. This reverse-level luxury property has been designed to make the most of the stunning sea views, with an open plan kitchen and living area that leads on to a private balcony overlooking the sea. For alfresco dining with a view there is the outside patio area with dining table and chairs; perfect for having a barbecue during the summer. Parking is a luxury in this harbour town, but Cliff Top Cottage has the advantage of a double garage, which can also be used to store outdoor equipment such as wetsuits, surf boards and bicycles.

Porthleven is a popular fishing harbour located in West Cornwall, near to the town of Helston and Marazion. The harbour front is dotted with a superb selection of shops, restaurants and pubs, which means you’ll never be out of options for somewhere to eat and drink. The small beach directly opposite the cottage is accessible during low tide, but for those looking to make a whole day out of it the family friendly beaches of Praa Sands and Perranuthnoe are just ten minutes by car.

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.
