Located right above Porthleven beach, Blue Horizon is a charming reverse level cottage with fabulous uninterrupted views across Mount's Bay stretching from The Lizard Peninsula to Land's End. As you enter this tastefully decorated cottage you will find the dual aspect master bedroom with superking bed. There is a second bedroom on this ground floor with a single bed and both bedrooms have sea views. A luxurious bathroom is also on this floor with a bath with shower over.
Stairs lead up from the hallway into a light and bright open plan living area. Here there is comfy seating, a Smart TV and dual aspect windows overlooking the sea and beach below. The dining area benefits from a large dining table next to a picture window, again overlooking the sea, enabling you to dine with those breathtaking sea views. This newly fitted kitchen boasts white high gloss units with granite worktops and built in appliances. Features such as travertine flooring and the latest high tech infrared heating are also beautiful new additions to this fabulous holiday home.
Blue Horizon is located within walking distance of the traditional yet vibrant fishing village of Porthleven which offers an array of shops, galleries, pubs and top class restaurants. The Beach is literally a stone's throw from the cottage and it is right on the Southwest Coastal Path, less than a mile walk from Loe Bar.

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.
