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 if you have had a day out. Always immaculately clean on arrival. It has a...

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.

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.
