The property

Set in an enviable cliff top position in Porthleven, Pendrea possesses immense appeal with panoramic sea views spanning Mount's Bay from as far east as the Lizard peninsula to as far west as Boscawen Point in the Penwith peninsula. Within striking distance, there is direct access from the grounds of the property onto the scenic coastal footpath and steps leading down to the beach are a short stroll away.

The circular walk along the coast and through the Penrose Estate passing Loe Pool (Cornwall's largest fresh water lake) is highly recommended, offering unique contrasts where a dramatic coastline and a woodland water world live side by side.

You might wish to round the trip off with some light refreshment at the Ship Inn or a cream tea at the harbourside cafe. The village centre with its restaurants, pubs, galleries, craft shops, mini-supermarket, delicatessen, fishmongers, bakers, chemist and post office is a convenient 5-10 minute walk.

A ten minute drive along the coast is the premier beachside resort of Praa Sands and its scenic 9-hole coastal golf course and a little further along is Penzance the gateway to the Penwith peninsula and the white sand beaches at Sennen, St Ives and Porthcurno and the landmark attractions at Land's End, The Minack Theatre and St Michael's Mount.

Offering a relaxed homely feel and a constant connection
to the coast, the reversed interior capitalises on stunning sea views and generous proportions. Practical for families and couples, there is space for everyone to relax with a large sitting room with a coal effect fire, games room equipped with table tennis, beach chairs and mats, conservatory with access to an elevated garden (children to be supervised) with vast sea views and the convenience of a family bathroom and en-suite shower room.

About the location

PORTHLEVEN

Helston 3 miles; Penzance 10 miles; Hayle 11 miles; St. Ives 17 miles; Falmouth 17.5 miles.

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.
