The property

New Horizons are in sight at this detached modern bungalow situated within a 5 minute walk from the long stretch of sandy beach in the traditional fishing village of Porthleven. Watching over a pleasant vista, the property occupies an elevated position from where it catches glimpses of the horizon, the charismatic harbour and far reaching views over roof tops towards open fields. Set in a quiet area along a no-through road it offers the chance for a relaxing break and at the same time, Porthleven is a wonderful destination for fun and recreation. Within a short stroll is the village centre with its old inns, restaurants, galleries and craft shops arranged around the harbour, from where fishing and pleasure boat trips operate during the summer months. Captivating walkers is a magnificent coastline, stretching in either direction and passing Loe Bar (1 mile east) and Loe Pool, Cornwall's largest fresh water lake. The ancient market town at Helston is 2 miles and The Lizard and Penwith Peninsulas are within a short drive.

New Horizons is a real home-from-home. Part refurbished in 2010, the accommodation is arranged on one level and offers a high degree of comfort for breaks in and out of season with an open fire, electric heating and double glazing.

Appointed throughout with brand new furnishings, the lounge boasts a deep cushioned corner sofa and comfortable pocket sprung mattresses feature in the bedrooms. The master bedroom is equipped with an ultra-chic en-suite shower room whilst guests in the twin and single bedrooms can use the well appointed bathroom.

Porthleven is one of south west Cornwall’s hidden, coastal gems, located near Helston, famous for its annual Flora Dance Festival. Situated between Lizard Point and Land’s End, Porthleven retains the feel of a traditional Cornish fishing village, enjoying uninterrupted views of the Atlantic Ocean and the beautiful Cornish coastline. The iconic clock tower sits on the harbour entrance and the pubs, shops, cafés and restaurants cluster around the historic picturesque inner harbour, where there is plenty of boating and marine activity. With a warren of streets lined with classic Cornish, granite cottages, an extensive beach manned with lifeguards, the chance for alfresco dining in one of a number of well reviewed restaurants, and crabbing off the harbour, there are plenty of activities for the whole family to enjoy, all year round. Porthleven is building a reputation for eating out with a popular food festival established in the spring. Out of season, Porthleven has one of the best surf breaks in the country where you can sit down and get lost for hours watching the energetic surfers riding the waves. There are some fabulous hidden coves along this stretch of coastline, including Praa Sands, Poldhu Cove, and Rinsey, a magical setting for the more energetic. You may have even seen pictures of Porthleven on television, being one of the best spots in the UK for storm watching, with the crashing winter waves often being used as the backdrop to weather forecasts. Walkers will enjoy the South West Coast Path, adventuring west past Rinsey Head with spectacular views, or south across Loe Bar to Penrose Estate with its National Trust cafe, and on to Gunwalloe Church Cove. Take a trip to the Isles of Scilly by boat or plane and marvel at the display of sub-tropical gardens at the stunning Tresco Abbey. The Eden Project near St. Austell offers an interesting day out. Porthleven is the ideal base for discovering the delights of west Cornwall and the Lizard Peninsula.

There are 15 steps to the entrance. Max 5 people including infants.
