First in line of these iconic Victorian terraces, The Anson enjoys fabulous views out to sea and overlooking the picturesque Porthleven harbour.
Finished to a very high standard, on the ground floor there is a beautiful well equipped L shaped kitchen with granite worktops, Smeg fridge freezer, Siemens appliances and solid oak units. This open plan layout leads through to the dining area with table and chairs. The elegant master bedroom boasts a king sized sleigh bed, beautiful soft furnishings and a large bay window looking out onto the harbour. Also on this floor is a lovely bathroom with a luxurious deep roll top bath. French doors lead from the kitchen to the side patio where there is an outside shower; perfect for washing down sandy children and wetsuits!
On the first floor, the living room is to the front of the property with a large bay window where you can make the most of those stunning sea views. Tastefully decorated with lovely soft furnishings and artwork, there are comfy sofas, a window seat, TV, DVD player and a good selection of board games and books. The rest of the sleeping accomodation is also on the first floor, with one twin room and one bunk bed room, and there is a shower room.
To the front of the property is an elevated terrace with table and chairs. On a sunny day you can enjoy this real sun trap for most of the afternoon and evening.... ideal for enjoying a sundowner whilst watching the world go by.

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.
This has been our 5th visit to Porthleven & our second stay at The Anson. I love this house, perfectly located, great views - truly a forst class house with everything you need. We will certainly be back againThe Edgcumbe family - 17th November 2018
Our first time staying in The Anson, we love being able to see the sea from the kitchen & the outside shower is really useful. All the home comforts & a big fridge make the stay all the better. Nothing beats the terrace in the evening.
The Anson is well equipped, clean & comfortable. Looking forward to coming back again next year.The Lake family
We had a lovely time & would come again! The kitchen is a cook's dream! Christie
