A unique property in a fantastic location in the heart of Porthleven.

Ms Carol H,

We all LOVED this property! Spotlessly clean, with a very well equipped kitchen suitable for a large group of people.

Mrs Marion C,

Spotlessly clean on arrival. Porthleven is an amazing place and we cannot wait to return.

Previous Customer,

Cornish Horizons are very professional and the standard of the accommodation is always of a high standard. Staff are helpful and polite. We have enjoyed several holidays with them and would recommend them to others.

Mrs Andrea C,

Had a fabulous week, 8 of us had plenty of space and the open plan living area has been so comfortable! Porthleven is a wonderful place with lots of great eateries, drinking holes and friendly people - we can't wait to come back!!! ***** (5 star). Praa Sands is a wonderful beach for body boarding and the kids had great fun crabbing and jumping in the harbour!

Previous Customer

Had a wonderful week. Weather super. House is just as good as always. Have recommended it to lots of friends who have also enjoyed it. Great family house. Here's to the next time. PS Even the surf was good.

Previous Customer

Lovely spacious venue. The kitchen is superbly equipped with everything a large group with a child could need. Porthleven is a lovely place, good restaurants, friendly people. Lovely holiday!

Previous Customer

Lovely week at The Old Sunday School - gorgeous place with lots of space and the weather has been amazing! Lovely lazy days and so many great places to eat and drink. Thank you! We'll definitely be back.

Previous Customer

We can recommend Kernow Coasteering (if you are fit and able!) for a great day/morning out and we enjoyed surfing with Dan Joel Surf School at Poldhu Cove. Minack Theatre (Tosca) was a highlight (take all weather gear!) and somehow we managed St. Ives (Tate Modern) & Penlee House Art Gallery and Museum, Penzance. We have spent a busy 7 days and go home rested from the humdrum of life! (Also, walked round the Lizard and enjoyed a late swim at Kynance Cove).

Previous Customer

We have stayed in many properties in Porthleven over the years and this is by far the most spacious. We were visiting for Flora Day in Helston and have had a lovely time. We think the property is lovely and well-equipped. Overall, a fantastic place and we would recommend it to others who needed a property of this size.

Previous Customer

A fabulous conversion, definitely with the wow factor! The 6 adults and 2 youngsters loved the character and space, and we enjoyed Porthleven, with its beach, harbour and good restaurants, as well as the surrounding area including Great Expectations at the Minack. We loved it! Thank you!
