Welcome to our holiday cottage situated on the cliffs to the east side of Porthleven Harbour. The cottage is built to modern standards with electric central heating but in the traditional style and can accommodate 6 holidaymakers in comfort.
Most of its accommodation is on the first floor which gives wonderful views over Mounts Bay from the Lizard Peninsula in the east to Penzance in the West.
Holidaymakers enjoy the short walk along the clifftop (part of the South West Coastal Path) and through the ancient narrow lanes to the village, which is a popular holiday resort and also the most Southerly working fishing port in Britain.
The harbour and surrounding area is alive with restaurants, pubs and cafes alongside gift and craft shops, chandlers, boatbuilders and art galleries and retains much charm and character of bygone years with many buildings remaining from a time when the harbour flourished with the shipping of copper, lead and silver and also had a large trade in pilchards. It is the only west facing port in Cornwall and the present harbour was built in the early 1800's.
There are elegant Victorian and Edwardian villas and fishermen’s cottages nestling into the surrounding hillside and visitors enjoy the lovely views and relax on the beach which is sheltered by the cliffs.
A well-stocked supermarket, off licence and play area for children are all situated in the Village.
