Less than 200 yards from the harbourside in Porthleven this delightful, stone-built cottage is hidden away from the crowds but with everything on your doorstep. Furnished in a bright, contemporary style whilst retaining the original character of a fisherman’s cottage, it feels cosy and welcoming. With original wooden flooring, exposed granite stonework, a characterful woodburning stove and soft, velvety sofas, you’ll want to snuggle up here all year round. With striking artwork, coastal colours and features which nod to it’s nautical past, Torleven Cottage is adorable.
You enter into the living/dining room, with its thick whitewashed walls and striking fireplace, which then leads through to a galley kitchen and ground floor shower room with underfloor heating. Upstairs there are two bedrooms – one with zip’n’ link beds offering flexibility for guests and the other with a king size bed and quality mattress. A pretty, little, private garden to the rear with a dining set, barbecue and outdoor sink makes this a pet-friendly space too.
Torleven Cottage is perfect for a romantic retreat for two or a family holiday with lots of great facilities on your doorstep. Couples will enjoy exploring the coastal paths, the fantastic restaurant scene, local pubs with their interesting past and watching the waves pound against the harbour wall. Families will find places to catch crabs off the harbour walls, enjoy rock-pooling on the beach, mess about in the water and make visits to local attractions such as Flambards at Helston, the National Seal Sanctuary at Gweek and you can’t miss Roskilly’s Ice Cream Farm on The Lizard.

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.
What a wonderful week in Torleven! A fantastic first holiday for us and our eleven month old little girl, the cottage has everything we could possible need or want and is in such a beautiful location. Will be sad to leave this stylish and lovely cottage. - 20th September 2019
We really have enjoyed staying in your beautiful cottage. It was very clean and well-equipped. We loved exploring Porthleven, The Lizard and especially walking the causeway at St. Michael's Mount. We had an absolutely fantastic meal at The Square in Porthleven so would recommend. Thank you for allowing us to bring Izzy! - 14th June 2019
