Shambrook is a lovely renovated mid terrace cottage family holiday home which enjoys countryside views over the vibrant fishing village of Porthleven. The living room also benefits from a wood burning stove. The family can congregate at the end of the day in the refurbished shaker style kitchen with large dining table. Outside, to the rear of the property there is a small courtyard with seating area.
Shambrook is located just a 5 minute walk from both the village centre and the beach, with the South West Coastal path within easy access. Good restaurants and galleries are in abundance in Porthleven, just two miles from the market town of Helston. Porthleven in Cornwall 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. Porthleven 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. The harbour was completed in 1825.

Loved everything about the cottage, in fact I wish I lived there.
Beautiful views and very close to harbour, beach, shops and restaurants. Very comfortable beds! Well equipped kitchen and cozy living room.
We've visited Porthleven several times, but have never stayed in Shambrook before. The accommodation was spotless, in a great location with views over the countryside, which meant a very relaxed and comfortable break. We loved it.
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.
