We've stayed at this cottage a few times and always have a lovely time. It's within walking distance of all the harbour shops and lovely restaurants, as well as golden beaches. The house is cosy and is well equipped. The area has so many pretty places to explore, such as beautiful walks and gardens to visit!!

About the neighbourhood
Porthleven is the most southerly port in England. It has an historic harbour with shops, restaurants, pubs and cafes to suit all tastes and budgets. There is an historic trail to follow. Beautiful beaches and coastal trails. Should you wish to explore the area, Porthleven is a great base for easy access to the rest of Southern Cornwall, such as St Ives, St Michael's Mount, the Lizard, the Minack Theatre, and Falmouth. There are lots of things to do in the area, such as surfing, body boarding, and paddle boarding, or for the less active how about some crabbing off the harbour wall followed by an ice cream at Nauti but Ice, watching the waves.
Getting around
It is very easy to explore the wider area by car.
There is a regular bus service to many of the areas of interest in Southern Cornwall.
