Lovely cottage - ideally located a couple of minutes walk from Porthleven harbour. Thoughtfully refurbished with coastal details. Well equipped and cosy. We had a wonderful short break and would definitely recommend.

Wendy E,

This was a wonderful little Cottage in an excellent location. We have enjoyed many visits to Porthleven but this actually was our favourite! If at all possible we will book this lovely little cottage again in the not too distant future. Very impressed by all aspects of the property and your service! Thank you very much

Ms Larryl B,

Porthleven exceeded our expectations, a really pretty town, with several good places to eat out and a lovely beach all within 5 mins of our cottage. The locals were very friendly to us too.

Mrs Sarah P,

First time in Porthleven and it certainly won't be the last. Pilchard Cottage was lovely, excellent location, clean and comfortable. The lovely harbour has something for everybody and is a two minute walk away.

Mrs Carole L,

We enjoyed our stay in Porthleven very much, thank you! We want to come back!

Mrs Francesca G,

Perfect location for the many things to do in Porthleven and South Cornwall.

The Langleys, S

We had a really great time at Pilchard Cottage which was a really nice cosy place to stay. Thanks also for the great weather you had ordered for us as well!

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.
