Located right above the beach and just around the corner from Porthleven's iconic clock tower, this superbly positioned cottage is perfectly placed to make the most of those stunning sea views over Mount's Bay. Samphire Cottage has the rare claim that it has been owned by the same family for seven generations, and this can be felt when you walk into this loved family home.
A sun room leads into an open plan living/dining room from which those glorious sea views can be enjoyed. The living room is at one end with comfy sofas, large inglenook and wood-burning stove. At the other end is the dining area with dining table.
This room opens up into a well equipped kitchen breakfast room with five-burner induction hob, larder and belfast sink. There is a large breakfast bar and cosy seating area with more comfy sofas, and due to the open plan nature of the whole of the downstairs sea views can also be enjoyed from here. To the back of the house is a porch which leads out to the rear entrance.
Upstairs there are three bedrooms; a king and double to the front of the cottage which both have sea views, and two single rooms to the rear of the cottage. There is a family bathroom with bath and separate shower.
Outside to the front of the cottage is a patio terrace with table and chairs, where you have uninterrupted views out to sea overlooking Mount's Bay.
Porthleven is a vibrant fishing village with a fantastic community and boasts an array of superb restaurants and galleries, as well as a choice of good pubs and supermarket. Just 2 miles from the town of Helston and 12 miles from Penzance.

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.
Holiday property was excellent and in a wonderful position for watching the waves.Mr Gerhard Morgan - 28th December 2019
Stunning house, gorgeous view. Everything you needed was provided. We didn't want to leave. Fell in love with Porthleven when we visited a few years ago. Try to visit at least once a year.
