  • Mr Myatt

    “The owner has taken every step to make the cottage dog friendly.”

    Great cottage in town walking distance to beach and countryside beyond. Cottage was extremely well equipped and made dog proof for visitors.

The property

Pilchard Cottage is a bright and modern terrace cottage, positioned in the fishing village of Porthleven on Cornwall's beautiful south west coast.

With a beautiful outlook over rolling countryside and glimpses over the colourful harbor, this super smart holiday home is ideal for couples, families and friends looking for coastal escapades.

Return from days out exploring the South West Coast Path to unwind on plump sofas in the sitting room.

You can tune into the Smart TV and on cool evenings sit beside the warm glow of the wood burning stove.

Prepare a delicious meal in the kitchen and get together around the dining table with your loved ones or there are several foodie restaurants in Porthleven to choose from including Rick Stein and Kota (which is recognised by the Michelin and Good Food Guides).

Head upstairs to a sleek shower room and two bedrooms including a master king-size double bedroom and twin bedroom, each boasting super comfy mattresses for a restful stay.

Relax on the small and private patio at the rear and soak up the coastal atmosphere - the perfect spot for a sundowner.

Porthleven offers a selection of amenities, as well as opportunities for walking, cycling, swimming, fishing and surfing.

You can catch glimpses of the boating activity at the harbour and entertain the kids with crabbing days spent on the sandy beach.

Also worth a visit when in the area are the iconic landmark attractions at St Michael’s Mount, Minack Theatre, Land’s End as well as the holiday hot spots at St Ives, Marazion and the Lizard Peninsula.

With plenty to see and do in this beautiful region of Cornwall, Pilchard Cottage is the ideal getaway for you and the family.

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 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.
