The Lamp House, Porthleven. Spectacular Sea Views

Holiday Rental House -
3 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 6
Porthleven, Helston, Cornwall, England
The Lamp House sits at the edge of Porthleven above the water on a quiet coastal road on the route to Loe Bar, the largest fresh water lake in Cornwall. The house has been renovated throughout and is beautifully furnished to the highest standards. Read our fantastic reviews.

The Lamp House has a bright open plan sitting room/dining room/kitchen on the first floor, with glorious views from the four large picture windows. Sitting at the dining table on the comfortable window seats you can spend hours reading and watching the world go by below or enjoying a glass of wine as the sun sets. Ideal for families, friends and couples alike we hope you will love the Lamp House as much as we do.

Porthleven is a fantastic active fishing village with much to attract tourists - great restaurants, a lovely beach, beautiful walks and superb pubs. The v...

The Lamp House is a lovely holiday home. I have stayed there six or seven times and am looking forward to returning in June. A very pleasant homely place to spend a morning or afternoon if the weather is bad, or to come back to...More

About the neighbourhood
The area is a walkers paradise and there is nothing like a morning stroll along the coastal path, across the sand spit at Loe Bar, and on to Gunwalloe where you can have a superb pub lunch before returning home. Porthleven is a fantastic unspoilt traditional and active fishing village. With superb pubs, cafes, shops and award winning restaurants the harbour side is always bustling but rarely overcrowded like the tourist havens on the north coast. In fact Porthleven is often at its busiest on a stormy day when many locals gather around the harbour to watch the dramatic scenes of the enormous Atlantic waves crashing up against the cliffs.

Just five minutes walk from the house you will find steps taking you down to Porthleven's beautiful sandy beach, the east side of which allows pets al...

How to get there
Porthleven lies to the south of Helston, about 5 hours drive from London. It can be easily reached from Newquay airport where you can hire a car. Trains from London stop at Camborne which is a 20 minute taxi ride away. You are best to approach the Lamp House from Helston taking the road to Loe Bar and then down Coopers Lane rather than going through Porthleven where the streets are very narrow.
