Tye Rock Hotel
See our spectacular Clifftop House in Porthleven
Once a favourite holiday location for regular guests, artists and writers Tye Rock Porthleven was originally commission by John Peverel Rodgers in 1883 before being requisitioned by the American Army and the 29th Infantry Division 1st Platoon during the 2nd world war.
Due to its southerly view of only the Atlantic, Tye Rock Manor often appears on the front pages of National Newspapers and on Television to illustrate the enormous breakers and spray in extreme weather conditions. However on sunny days the turquoise water and empty white sandy beach below is comparable to anywhere in the world with Loe Bar, the mysterious sand barrier, separating Cornwall’s largest freshwater lake, Loe Pool, from the sea. King Arthur’s sword Excalibur was reputedly thrown into Loe Pool.
