Description

A well-equipped prime waterfront house, adjoining the coastal path on the Loe Bar side of Porthleven. This homely south-westerly facing property enjoys uninterrupted panoramic sea views over Mounts Bay. Behind the house is a large paved, flood lit terrace with brick BBQ, making it ideal for entertaining and secluded sun-bathing. There is an acre of walled garden including a large flat croquet/football lawn and a separate chalet style games room overlooking the sea with pool table, darts and an exterior southerly facing seating area.

The flexible accommodation is arranged over two levels, with an adjoining single storey annex which can be closed off when the house is used for smaller groups. There is a king bedroom with en-suite bathroom with disabled facilities on the ground floor, plus a further bathroom. The first floor has a king bedroom with en-suite bathroom. Both rooms enjoy sea views. On the ground floor there is a spacious front hall, a well-equipped kitchen and large dining area and upstairs is a comfortable family sitting room with an electric woodburner and a Juliet balcony overlooking the coastal path and sea beyond.

Further bedrooms, sleeping up to 8 additional people, are in the downstairs extension, which can be closed off for groups of four or less. Here there are two further twin bedrooms, one with en-suite shower room. There is also a bunk room with two sets of bunk beds which can sleep 4 children or teenagers.

This is a perfect family holiday home for parties of all sizes, which has been fitted out to a very high standard. There are board games, jigsaw puzzles, books and Netflix/Sky TV for wet days and plenty of outside space, beautiful walks and local amenities to enjoy on fine days.

Reviews

The house is in a stunning location. Porthleven is charming and we had a really memorable holiday. The house and gardens are really spacious and sunny and the utility room was perfect for the dogs. The welcome pack was lovely too and the cleaner was very friendly and helpful.Jane Fitzherbert - 27th October 2017
We had such a happy time here with all our family members to celebrate New Year. We all loved the house and it was so special to come all together to Porthleven. We used to bring our children here and now they still come back with our grandchildren. This was the second time we have stayed at Tripolitania, which we find very welcoming and comfortable. I love the homely touches and all the information in the house about its history and local places to visit. Had some gorgeous walks along the coastal path to The Halzephron and Penrose Estate. The dogs are exhausted and will miss the exercise. Thank you.Jane and Roger Grace and family - 3rd January 2017
A lovely cottage for a large group, very comfortable and clean. The garden is great. The views are fantastic. The beach is just a 5 minute walk away and there's plenty to visit nearby. The box of beach towels was so very handy. In the end we just wished we'd stayed longer!Geoff Bland and family - 20th August 2016
Boys loved the garden, playing up and down the different levels. We couldn't have asked for a better place to relax and unwind for the week. Lovely and warm house with fantastic views. Really surprised with Praa Sands car park disappearing into the sea! We can not wait to come back again.Rhian and Phil Saunders and boys, Cwmbran, Wales - 21st February 2015
A really spacious, light and warm house, which was perfect for all of us this week. It is ideally situated with wonderful views. Thank you for sharing your lovely house with us.Jill Payne, East Grinstead - 29th March 2014
Although the weather was variable, we enjoyed walking on the beaches with the dogs. Great to come back when wet to a warm house, and the utility room was an ideal please to dry wet hounds.Stephanie and Charles Payne, Romsey, Hants - 29th March 2014
A wonderful week in this lovely house in this beautiful place. So many highlights. Thank you to the owners of Tripolitania for letting us have their lovely house and to our dear friends.The Napier Family - October 2015
We have never been to this area before and it is absolutely spectacular. The walks along the coastal path are breath taking and we were so lucky with the weather. The house is so comfortable and well stocked. The week has been unforgettable, we were celebrating special birthdays with our cosest friends and I can’t imagine a better place to do that. Thank you.Terry & Louise Gregson. October 2015
What a wonderful place, beautiful views, comfy well-equipped house and fantastic weather. A wonderful week spent with our whole family exploring this lesser known part of Cornwall. This has got to be one of the best houses we’ve ever rented.Greenwood Family plus grandchildren and dogs - August 2015
We have had a lovely time… lovely house…. Lovely area. Thank you.Lynda & Frank and Little Roxy the Dog - December 2015
A great place to blow away our cobwebs. We come to Porthleven every year and this is the best cottage we have ever stayed in. We will be back.Alison & Michael Nichols - January 2016
A veritable “clan convention” in a beautiful place. Lovely well equipped house.Lloyd Hilton – July 2015
Autumn is obviously the time for glorious weather in Cornwall! Bracing walks to The Halzephron at Gunwalloe, followed by candle lit dinners at the house with good friends. A perfect week to end the year.Jane Henley - November 2015
This was our first “family” holiday with children and grandchildren and Tripolitania was perfect for all. We had a wonderful (at times noisy with 2 x 1 year old!) week here with lots of outings. Enjoyed the games rom, garden and wonderful views. We appreciated all the thoughtful touches – the Welcome Pack was yummy and the house had all the equipment needed for a beach holiday. We leave with happy memories and are planning a return next year. This is a home full of love and welcome and we were lucky to share a little of it.Ken Cordaroy and Chris Hitchmough and Families - May 2015
Tripolitania far exceeded our expectations. It instantly felt very homely and I will certainly recommend it to friends and family. Hope to come again.Davies Family - September 2014
What a wonderful week we have had, great weather, amusing company, long walks and limitless wine and food – everything a holiday should be. The house was spotless when we arrived with lots of welcome extras! The house, gardens and views were priceless. We will return.Amanda Dickenson and friends - May 2014
Fantastic Location. A perfect happy house for a long overdue family reunion. Everything was perfect, thank-you.Nancy Bartholomew - April 2014
A home from home, even for the dogs. We have had a fantastic family holiday, which will hopefully be the first of many. The house offers so much, space, games, views and is brilliantly located. We have really enjoyed our week in Tripolitania and even had enough sunshine to enjoy the garden. Thank you so much for the opportunity to share this great family home.Sue and Eddie Michel - October 2014
The most fabulous week, celebrating 60th and 80th birthdays - eating, walking, laughing and soaking up the sun! The easy access bathroom made all the difference. Thank you.The Grudgeon Family - May 2015
Great size house, with lots of parking and good sized dog friendly gardens. This is our 4th time to Porthleven and hope to return to Tripolitania again.The Hannan Family - June 2015
The house is close enough to the town to make it an easy walk, but far enough way to feel we were not holidaying on top of others. The huge garden was brilliant for the kids and they loved hanging out in the games room.The Bromley Family - April 2016
Beautiful house and views – thank you for the lovely welcome pack. We found the house spacious and comfortable for our party of 12 and the kitchen was well equipped. Planning on definitely to return for a walking holiday next year when we will be a smaller group!The Morse Family - June 2015
We love Porthleven and have visited many times over the years. This house is the best we’ve had so far.Nancy Faber and Family - August 2016
The welcome pack was a lovely surprise, thank you. The sun came out on our first day and lasted virtually all week. The house is perfect and within easy reach of the popular Cornish holiday destinations. The children have made the most of the Games Room and playing croquet on the lawn. We hope to visit again.The Cotton Family - April 2017
Lovely comfortable holiday house. Good for children and dogs with loads of outside space and great walks around the Penrose Estate.Heaver Family - April 2017
Our first time in Porthleven and we absolutely loved it!! The house was everything we had hoped for, with fantastic views and enough to keep “the little ones” and big ones happy. The welcome pack was a nice gesture and was very much appreciated after a long drive. We will take away many happy memories of Tripolitania and Porthleven.The Clancy and Tanner Families – July 2017
We loved our stay at Tripolitania. The beds are comfortable, it has awesome views of the sea and the games room makes a great hangout for teenagers. We all agree that we’d give the house 10/10.Sarah Pullinger and Family - August 2017
We had a wonderful time – glorious sunny weather and great to return to the house after our first visit last year. All the children enjoyed the croquet, pool room, beaches (especially the crabbing and rock pools!) and glorious surfing. We really love all the local holiday fun here, such as Porthleven Harbour and cafes etc. Excellent coastal walks and friendly locals with 2 beaches (one dog beach and one other) right near the house. Beautiful views and comfortable well equipped family home. Thank you.The Ryan and Murray Families - August 2017
It doesn’t get much better than this… heavenly week in the sunshine… fun, laughter, and friendship. Wonderful memories from Tripolitania.Vicky Fraser and Family - August 2017
Our dogs loved the garden, playing up and down the different levels. We couldn’t have asked for a better place to relax and unwind for the week. Lovely clean and warm house with fantastic views. We can’t wait to come back again. Ros & Paul Sanders and boys (plus 2 dogs) - Feb 2017
Wonderful week despite the mixed weather. Tripolitania never disappoints – this was our third stay and as always, we felt privileged to spend time in this glorious location. A great family house that works just as well for 4 people as it did when we packed it with 12 last summer!Sandra and Mike Bashall - February 2017
A wonderful stay… but it went far too quickly. Caught some tasty mackerel which we cooked on the BBQ and enjoyed reading about the history of Porthleven – so many ship wrecks including the SS Tripolitania!Simon Ringrose - July 2016
We have had a fantastic week returning to Porthleven where we holidayed as children. It’s been 30 years since we were here last and although it is more commercial, the town and harbour are still charming. Staying at Tripolitania has been the icing on the cake. A comfortable home for us all during our stay and the perfect base from which to explore. Thank you for thinking of everything to make our stay so special.Priest and Reeve families and our 3 labs - July 2016
A lovely house with beautiful views – we have had a wonderful week in Cornwall. The welcome pack was a lovely surprise and allowed us our first cream tea (of many!). Thank you.Seth family & friends - August 2016
A lovely cottage for a large group, very comfortable and clean. The garden is great. The views are fantastic. The beach is just a 5 minute walk away and there's plenty to visit nearby.In the end we just wished we'd stayed longer!Geoff Bland and family - August 2016
What a fabulous way to end January. We had such a great time – lots of fresh air, the longest walks ever, great wine and dancing around the kitchen table. Have totally fallen in love with Tripolitania and Porthleven. We will be back.Georgia Rose - January 2017
We had a much needed break and the house was ideal for the four of us! We will miss falling asleep to the sound of the sea but hope to come back soon. Porthleven we love you.Michael and Antonia - October 2016
A very enjoyable stay at Porthleven. The best house we’ve ever rented – by far!Emily Mason – June 2016
