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.


The apartment was beautiful, it was very clean, first impressions were 'wow', so much so, I booked next year's holiday at the same apartment within half an hour of arriving. Thank you to all the staff at Above Beach Cottages, it was a wonderful stay.Ms R Coleman - 5th November 2018

We have enjoyed every minute of our stay at 'Seahorse'. This is our 4th holiday in Porthleven and probably not our last! 'Seahorse' is immaculate, has lovely, spacious rooms and good parking.

We have been visiting Porthleven for many years and it was nice to find such a convenient apartment, so nicely decorated and easy to make ourselves at home in. We have had a wonderful time as usual and will be sad to leave although I have no doubt we will be back soon.Sarah, Nick, Alex, William, Jane and Andrew - 31st May 2018
A wonderful time in beautiful Cornwall. The apartment is fabulous, a little haven at the end of a busy days walking and sight seeing.
