Set in a cliff top location with a bird’s eye view of Porthleven Bay and the surrounding coast, Karrek Beach House (formally Haughton Beach House) is the perfect luxury self-catering property for families with a difference. A modern take on a traditional Cornish beach house, there’s a fresh flavour to the luxury interiors of this stunning coastal creation.

If you’re looking for a wow factor location, This beach house delivers on every level. The uninterrupted panoramic sea views provide a dramatic backdrop whatever the season. With unrivalled al fresco dining views from sunrise to sunset all you need is the best of Cornish seafood to accompany. The setting is a real wildlife haven, look out for cormorants, kestrels, peregrine falcons and dolphins whilst you take your morning coffee on the balcony.

With three en suite bedrooms as well as stunning sea views, a modern log burner and a well equipped contemporary kitchen, you really will struggle to tear yourself away from this small slice of Cornish heaven.

Porthleven exudes Cornish charm and tradition.  Set in the middle of a huge sweeping bay, the beach at Porthleven is ideal for a relaxing family holiday and has arguably the most impressive harbour in Cornwall.  Construction commenced during Napoleonic times and some sources state that it was built with the aid of French prisoners of war. Small fishing boats land their daily catch in Porthleven, much of which is sold in Porthleven cafes and restaurants and the award winning Quayside fishmongers.

Excellent property just as described on website. Really enjoy Porthleven, delightful village.

Mrs Mary M,

Amazing cottage and location. Would love to return.

Mrs Stephanie B,

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at karrek Beach House. It far exceeded our expectations. It was so relaxing - you felt as though you were on an ocean liner - the sea was so close. What magnificent views! A very spacious house with everything you could want for a memorable stay. The two fridges were very useful and the bed very comfy. Very dog friendly - our dog loved the garden. A short walk into Porthleven brought you to excellent eating places, shops and and that iconic Clock tower. We can and will recommend this house and would return in an instant. Above Beach Cottages were perfect to deal with.

Ms M H,

Fantastic location, a great base for Porthleven and Lizard. Well equipped and we had a great week.

Mr Colin H,


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.
