This jaw-dropping property in Porthleven promises a truly unique getaway. If it’s a family coastal self-catering escape you crave then you can’t get much closer to the elements than Ocean View. With panoramic sea views, this is the perfect sand-between-toes retreat. The aptly named cottage really does have breathtaking views that have to be seen to be believed and you can 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 coastal cottage.
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. Enjoy day trips to Lands End, Flambards and the Cornish Seal Sanctuary and return home to your very own slice of Cornish heaven.

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.
I'm loathed to tell people how beautiful the view from Ocean View is at all times of year, in case we can't book it when we want to. I love December when the waves are crashing and we're safe and warm in a cosy house. And the sunsets are spectacular.Mrs Amanda Holloway - 5th January 2019
