Holiday Cottages in Porthleven

A little slice of foodie heaven cut into the wild west of Cornwall’s Lizard Peninsula, the former fishing port of Porthleven boasts a raw natural beauty, historic charm, and restaurants, cafes and traditional pubs galore.

A holiday in Porthleven offers a wonderful escape from the stresses of everyday life. On a calm summer day, the scene around the harbour is one of calm blue seas and bobbing boats. Gulls call overhead and people meander along the water’s edge enjoying ice creams. In winter, when the wind blows, you can watch the waves and storms crash dramatically into the bay.

The curve of the harbour wall is lined with whitewashed houses and traditional silhouettes – the famous clock tower standing proud. Independent shops and galleries vie with its many eateries for your attention. On the far side of its granite pier lies a lovely golden beach – the perfect spot for surfers and families at low tide.

Nearby you will find plenty of places to visit such as the picturesque village of Praa Sands with its beautiful beach, Marazion with the fantastic St Michael’s Mount, as well as Penzance and Newlyn.

From enjoying the stunning views along the South West Coast path, to visiting its nearby family attractions or heading to the lively town of Helston, one of our holiday cottages in Porthleven is the ideal spot to stay and explore.
