    “Beautiful cottage, perfect location.”

    There was absolutely everything we needed there, beautifully decorated, I would love to live there! So close to the shops, pubs etc and so many beautiful places close by to visit. We had the perfect holiday, one I will treasure.

The property

Positioned alongside the harbour at picturesque Porthleven, Sea Star sits within seconds of the sea and has a prime position in the coastal village.

This beautiful contemporary house benefits from spectacular sea views and enjoys the sunshine and sunsets.

With a bustling atmosphere all year round, this charming almost timeless hot-spot destination, renowned for its food festival, offers several fabulous restaurants including Michelin Star's, a good choice of pubs, several local bakeries, cafes and a delicatessen, all as you step out of the front door. The village retains much of its traditional charm and character with its impressive granite pier and clock tower.

Explore the National Trust coastline along the footpaths - a walker's paradise!

Guests will enjoy exploring the coast in both directions, rich in birdlife.

Ramble past the fresh water lake of Loe Bar or the shingle beach from Porthleven Sands to Gunwalloe Beach and Church Cove.

The market town of Helston is a five minute drive away and ten minutes will take you to beautiful Praa Sands, a popular beach spot for families and surfers.

A little further around Mounts Bay is Marazion, with arc of sand looking over the mystic splendour of St Michael's Mount.

This part time isle has a tiny harbour and wonderful gardens to discover with the castle perched at the top.

A hop on the ferry at high water or a gentle stroll across the knobbly causeway will make for a fun excursion.

Sea Star offers attractive accommodation on three levels in a perfect location on the waterfront, with an open-plan contemporary interior with three bedrooms.

The views of the harbour and out to sea are wonderful, and can be enjoyed from the living room and two of the bedrooms, with accommodation for up to 6 guests.

There is a small terrace for alfresco dining.

A private parking space is 200 yards away, or parking can normally be found directly outside the house.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.

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.
