How do you fancy staying in a house which has masses of history? Ealing House in the centre of Porthleven has been a general store, sweet shop and tobacconist, before becoming home to the poet and translator Percy Edward Pinkerton in the early 20th century. It now provides comfortable holiday accommodation for five people and two dogs. A useful porch/conservatory leads into the open-plan lounge/diner which has a lovely exposed stone wall. The kitchen is at the back of the house and along with the utility room, provides everything you’ll need to rustle up a delicious holiday meal. There is a hand shower room on the ground floor, whilst upstairs there is a family bathroom and three bedrooms – one of which has doors opening out onto a balcony with outside furniture. Just a minutes’ walk will take you to the harbour front and the many shops, galleries, pubs and restaurants. The historic site of St Michael’s Mount is only 15 minutes away in the car, with the golden sandy beaches of Praa Sands and Perranuthnoe only five miles from the harbour.

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.
