The property

Fisherman's Cottage is located in Cornwall, England, a short distance from Porthleven Harbour.

This charming cottage is a stone's throw from the beach and is just the place for a romantic getaway with your four-legged friend.

It has been renovated to a high standard, with white-washed walls, contemporary appliances, a woodburning stove, and exposed stonework.

Enter the bright living room from the street and relax on the leather sofa in front of the woodburning stove after a long day of sightseeing in Cornwall.

The kitchen and dining area are located on the lower-ground-floor, accessible from the living room.

Here, you can pamper your partner with a romantic meal at the dining table. The bedroom is located upstairs and features a king-size bed and an en-suite bathroom with a bath and a separate double-size walk-in shower, perfect for unwinding in the tub or getting a fast rinse before retiring for the night.

There is a covered area in the backyard perfect for stowing body boards or drying wetsuits.

Venture into the heart of Porthleven, a food lover's paradise, it has something to suit all tastes and budgets from a local Costcutter store to Michelin recognised restaurants.

Visit celebrity chef Michael Cain's restaurant on the harbourside and sample some delights.

There are several bakeries and take-aways including a delicatessen where you can order a delicious woodfired pizza.

The village has a vibrant feel year round with many galleries offering handmade jewellery, glassware, basketry and paintings to name but a few.

Alternatively, head west to play a round of golf at the dramatic 9 hole coastal course above Praa Sands followed by lunch on the mile long beach below or travel to Marazion to uncover history at St Michael's Mount which dominates the horizon; Loe Pool, Cornwall's largest freshwater lake is also nearby.

Make unforgettable memories at Fisherman's Cottage.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £50.

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.
