The property

The Loft is a former fisherman’s net loft, now offering a romantic and well-positioned bolthole in the coastal town of Porthleven, Cornwall.

Enjoying sea glimpses between the neighbouring properties, The Loft offers stylish, pet-friendly, and conveniently placed accommodation for two guests, looking to explore the stunning coastline and beyond.

Park up to the roadside and step indoors, reaching your seaward facing retreat.

Be welcomed into the open-plan living space, complete with a sleek kitchen, a handy breakfast bar, and plush seating, perfectly placed for enjoying the breath-taking vistas.

Prepare meals and set the breakfast bar, or on warm days, descend to the enclosed decked area for an alfresco affair, with the fresh sea air in the backdrop.

After a day of exploring, catch some rest from the contemporary king-size bedroom, before completing your morning routine in the en-suite shower room; be sure to make use of the complimentary bath robes and slippers on offer.

On your doorstep you will be spoilt for choice when dining out and shopping, with a wide variety of convenience stores, pubs, bars, cafes, and restaurants to select between, before heading down to the beach or climbing up to the clifftop vantage point.

Travel to the west coast of Cornwall, to the historic market town of Helston with its beautiful, cobbled streets, Georgian architecture, and The Blue Anchor Inn, the oldest pub in Cornwall, or visit the picturesque fishing town of Penzance and its bustling harbour, charming independent shops, galleries, and promenade.

If you’re looking to explore further afield, take a trip to nearby Hayle with its three miles of golden sand, attractive harbour, and RSPB Hayle Estuary for the chance to birdwatch, before grabbing a bag of fish and chips from Sanders Fish and Chips.

Spend an unforgettable holiday down in the seaside resort at The Loft.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

About the location


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 it's 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 it's 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.
