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.

Beautiful property in a great location.Mrs Karen West - 25th August 2018
This is a lovely holiday accommodation spotlessly clean and very well-equipped. The sun room and veranda are a real bonus and we witnessed a couple of lovely sunsets. Thankyou for the lovely scones, cream and jam. Also the elderflower wine.Ann and Neil - 8th June 2018
We have had a lovely stay in Porthleven, as always. The cottage was lovely - we especially enjoyed The Net Loft when the weather was nicer. We've enjoyed fabulous meals at Kota Kai, The Harbor Inn, Pizza, The Square and The Harbour Cafe. Quiz night at The Ship Inn was excellent - The pub has a unique atmosphere and we would highly recommend. Thanks for ensuring we had a brilliant weeks holiday.Lynne, Rob and Ella - 1st June 2018
