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 had a wonderful time, the cottage is in a perfect location for walking and sightseeing in the wider area. The sound of the lapping waves is so relaxing. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, thank you.Will, Lindsey and Josh - 30th August 2019
Had a lovely week in Porthleven. Our 5th visit to this beautiful place. Lovely weather and food once again. Rick Stein's for our 27th wedding anniversary, well worth a visit! We will miss the sea and the crashing waves.Galligans - 16th August 2019
We have had a fantastic week here in Porthleven. Highlights were swimming in the sea, the sound of the waves, eating lots of fresh fish from local fishmongers and Trelawney in Newlyn. Looking forward to a revisit.Pinnocks - 9th August 2019
We are new to Porthleven, what a Cornish gem! Mariners has been a superb location and very comfortable. We will miss the sound of the sea!Fisher family - 2nd August 2019

Location, location, location, perfect. Sea views marvellous. The little touches in the cottage are superb, Most relaxing holiday.Gerald and Eleanor, Kent
Mariners has provided us with a wonderful comfortable home with amazing views for our first trip to Porthleven (hopefully not the last). All of the fixtures and fittings are of a high standard with everything we could need – the beds are particularly comfortable! We have had wonderful views of calm, crystal clear seas, pods of dolphins/porpoises, sunsets, storm clouds and slashing rain- but all have been memorable.Sarahm, Rob, Joe and Matt, Northants
