    “We had a great week at Fishermans Cottage and would stay there again and highly recommend this cottage it as everything you could wish for.”

    .....our only problem with it was the steep stairs although the owners do make you aware of this so it is your choice and not put us off in any future visit....

The cottage

Within just moments walk of Porthleven harbour, sits this traditional stone built cottage.

Refurbished to a good standard, Fisherman's Cottage will suit style savvy visitors with its whitewashed walls coupled with contemporary finishes.

Enter from street level into the light living room with its stripped floorboards and stylish leather sofa complete with wood-burning stove.

Stairs lead up into the bedroom, which has a king size bed and modern en-suite bathroom with bath and separate double size walk-in shower.

From the living room, descend to the kitchen/breakfast room on the lower ground floor which has shaker style units and sleek appliances.

To the rear of the property is a covered storage space suitable for body boards or hanging wetsuits to dry.

Stroll in to Porthleven and you will find a good selection of cafes, shops, galleries and pubs including a small supermarket for your daily needs.

Porthleven is a fantastic base for holidays, opening up days on the Lizard Peninsula as a possibility or venture West to Marazion and Mounts Bay.

Fisherman's Cottage is ideal for a romantic break with sandy beaches, coastal footpaths and cosy inns right on your doorstep.

About the location


Helston 3 miles; Penzance 10 miles; Hayle 11 miles; St. Ives 17 miles; Falmouth 17.5 miles.

Porthleven is one of south west Cornwall’s hidden, coastal gems, located near Helston, famous for its annual Flora Dance Festival. Situated between Lizard Point and Land’s End, Porthleven retains the feel of a traditional Cornish fishing village, enjoying uninterrupted views of the Atlantic Ocean and the beautiful Cornish coastline. The iconic clock tower sits on the harbour entrance and the pubs, shops, cafés and restaurants cluster around the historic picturesque inner harbour, where there is plenty of boating and marine activity. With a warren of streets lined with classic Cornish, granite cottages, an extensive beach manned with lifeguards, the chance for alfresco dining in one of a number of well reviewed restaurants, and crabbing off the harbour, there are plenty of activities for the whole family to enjoy, all year round. Porthleven is building a reputation for eating out with a popular food festival established in the spring. Out of season, Porthleven has one of the best surf breaks in the country where you can sit down and get lost for hours watching the energetic surfers riding the waves. There are some fabulous hidden coves along this stretch of coastline, including Praa Sands, Poldhu Cove, and Rinsey, a magical setting for the more energetic. You may have even seen pictures of Porthleven on television, being one of the best spots in the UK for storm watching, with the crashing winter waves often being used as the backdrop to weather forecasts. Walkers will enjoy the South West Coast Path, adventuring west past Rinsey Head with spectacular views, or south across Loe Bar to Penrose Estate with its National Trust cafe, and on to Gunwalloe Church Cove. Take a trip to the Isles of Scilly by boat or plane and marvel at the display of sub-tropical gardens at the stunning Tresco Abbey. The Eden Project near St. Austell offers an interesting day out. Porthleven is the ideal base for discovering the delights of west Cornwall and the Lizard Peninsula.
