Kestral House has all you need for a very comfortable stay, including the bonus of a garage. Porthleven is beautiful, good choice of places to eat, coastal walks on the door step and bus services to Helston and Penzance within minutes of the property. We will book again in the future.

Elizabeth W,

We love the property and this was our 3rd visit. The location and the luxury of having a garage cannot be beaten. It has been decorated and some furnishings updated since our last visit and it's obvious the owners take a pride in their property.

Mrs Helen H,

Always a very comfortable and homely stay

Mrs J F,

Kestrel House is an extremely well placed property in the beautiful harbour town of Porthleven. The garage is very convenient and the facilities within the property of an excellent standard. The bedrooms as all large and airy. We will definitely wish to stay in Kestrel again.

Mr Daniel O,

Excellent location within easy reach of everything. Garage gave extra space and brilliant for storing beach stuff, wet suits etc. Added bonus of having parking. A lovely property, light and airy.

Mrs Natasha B,

We have had a brilliant couple of weeks staying at Kestrel House. It is a perfectly located property with everything on your doorstep. Very well-equipped and very comfortable. Thank you for the welcome wine and biscuits, a lovely touch! We look forward to returning to Kestrel House again in the future.

Previous Customer,

Kestral House was perfect home from home. Good location near to the harbour and all the amenities. Lovely walks on the doorstep and easy access to visit South Cornwall. Booking was easy and the Team were really helpful and quick to respond to emails.

Elizabeth W,

It felt like home from home.

Miss Nicol S,

Kestral House is in a great location , very spacious and comfortable. Porthleven is unique and has amazing restaurants cafes delis - spoilt for choice. Above Beach Cottages staff were very helpful, friendly and super efficient. Great beaches and walks and the locals are very friendly.

Mrs J F,


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.
