This former fisherman's cottage in Porthleven promises a truly memorable getaway.  With panoramic sea views to Mounts Bay and across to the Lizard, this is the perfect sand-between-toes family getaway that boasts quaint cottage features and a perfect location.  Listen to the gulls overhead and boats lazily sailing past in summer months and in winter you can enjoy the dramatic waves crashing from the warmth of this cosy cottage.  It really is the perfect place in for all seasons.

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.  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.  When you are ready for an adventure, enjoy day trips to Lands End, Flambards and the Cornish Seal Sanctuary and return home to your very own traditional fisherman's cottage.

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.

Kelynack has been a wonderful find - couldn't have asked for anything else. Wonderful sunny weather all week, we spent many hours on the patio just relaxing and enjoying the view.Jamiesons, Lichfield
Cottage wonderful (again as always). Weather mainly soggy but amazing seas – can we try again next year?The Smith family, Bedfordshire
Enchanting cottage, spotlessly clean, cosy, comfortable with everything one could possibly want...gins and tonics on the terrace were a must every evening.Mr and Mrs Sherwood, Berkshire
It's such a lovely neat little house and so well equipped....thanks also to the very friendly ladies from Porthleven Holidays.Koeppings, Germany
A beautiful cottage in a perfect location. We loved the constancy of the sea, sparkling blue sunshine sea and churning green grey storm sea, its sound was both soothing and enlivening.Jo and Dave, Bath
