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.
We found Porthleven Harbour to be a fantastic location. Dog friendly (big plus), and very friendly, helpful people in the shops, galleries and pubs. We spent a lot of time there, and found it offered everything we were looking for. The holiday property was in an excellent location which enabled us to walk to the harbour in a couple of minutes. The website was easy to use, especially for dog friendly properties. Other websites did not work as well. Also your website was recommended to us by a friend who has been holidaying in Cornwall for 20 years.Ms Teresa King - 22nd September 2019
We absolutely loved staying at Forth Scol. The house is probably the most comfortable self - accommodation I've ever spent time in. The owner has thought of everything, from washing liquid to laundry pegs, and even games, books, dvds, jam and many more surprises that made it easy for us to relax on our Cornwall holiday. It was a safe place for our 2.5 year old to run around and we slept soundly (apart from the Seagulls, but that's the seaside for you!). It's a pleasant 5 minute walk from the Porthleven harbour and centre, such a charming little town. I can't recommend it enough. Mrs Elite Avner Torbit - 22nd August 2019
We were very happy with the property it was very comfortable and homely and nice to return to after a day out. Would certainly love to stay there again. Porthleven is a lovely place to stay, it's friendly and has plenty of restaurants and cafes around a beautiful harbour. We have always booked with Above Beach Cottages as our standard of accommodation has always been first class and we feel very confident using them. Ms Catherine Kennedy - 20th June 2019
