Sea's the Day is a perfectly located cottage, all on one level which has been recently refurbished to a high standard and offers guests private parking as well as close proximity to Porthleven harbour.   For all those who love to take on the outdoor cooking challenge, enjoy dining outside on your patio, which comes complete with your own BBQ, but you are also just a short walk away from the array of restaurants and cafes that Porthleven has to offer.  This cottage sleep 3 people in 2 bedrooms, but does have the capacity to sleep one more on a pull out trundle bed.

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.

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.


Fabulous property, very clean and in a great location. Very narrow roads in and out but I drive a big car and managed it ok. Porthleven and Helston have nice restaurants and pubs and the Christmas light switch on and fireworks were excellent. Good company to book through and very easy to book online. No issues and had a great holiday. Mr Robbie Nixon - 10th December 2018
Excellent location, dog friendly property, secure patio area and an added luxury of your own parking space, much needed in Porthleven. Few minutes walk to the beautiful harbour where you have a choice of lovely restaurants/ cafes/pubs/ gift shops and entertainment. Lovely walking area and great location to visit other resorts. Reservation staff friendly and helpful.Mrs Samantha Smith - 19th June 2018
