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 have stayed at Mott House on several occasions and love the place and Porthleven itself. The recent refurbishments are outstanding. In particular, the new glass balcony has transformed the property and it is a delight to sit out over the sea drinking a few lemonades at sunset (or sunrise for that matter)!

A beautifully refurbished property with an exceptional view!Karen Holmes - 19th September 2019

1st stay at Mott House, excellent with fabulous views. Weather good - want to stay!Donna and Andy Wheeler, Lincoln - 4th November 2011
We've had a fantastic week. It's taking me ages to write this as I keep getting distracted by the view. Mia (age 4) and Ellie (18 months) have loved being so close to the beach and have really appreciated the toys in the house too. Would recommend a trip to Church Cove and Trevarno is a great place to visit as an alternative to sand and sea.Matt, Rachel, Mia
Great house, amazing weather - see you soon!Laura and Simon, Weymouth and Derry
Fantastic week, spectacular views from the terrace. Great house with everything supplied. We all loved Porthleven and look forward to our return. We all went home tanned!Dave
House made the holiday - thanks!Matt and Layla, Oxford
I thought it was lovely and it was very handy with the beach so close. It was also very cosy and peaceful and a good selection of movies for all the family. Sky is also very good because I don't have that at home. Its really nice at night when you sit on the upstairs balcony and watch the clouds and the sunset go by. It was also sunny the whole time - hooray!Rosie aged 10
Lovely Sea View. Sky Sports was awesome. Our beds were very comfortable...the house was absolutely fantastic. The bathroom facilities wowed us all!McLaren Family
Lovely week. Weather excellent after poor start. Cottage very good, one of the best I have ever stayed in - if not the best. Had good meals at Kota Margaret
