  • "The oil central heating failed to work."

    Phoned the owner who gave us the code to get into the flat 2 above . This was newly refurbished and had very efficient electric radiators. We had a great stay. Very well equipped flat and some nice touches...biscuits and wine waiting for us ,milk in the fridge and a rack of herbs and spices for use in the kitchen. Well placed for all amenities within walking distance. I did leave a note for the owner when we left and workmen had arrived to sort out the heating for Fisherman’s Rest as we were leaving. Only drawback was the steep stairs from the car park to the flats for oldies like us ! But we coped!!!

    We are glad you enjoyed your stay at Fisherman's Retreat and apologies for the oil heating not working in Fisherman's Rest, unfortunately the boiler was low in pressure but luckily easy to fix, however we have now replaced this system with a brand new electric boiler. It would be a pleasure to welcome you back to either of our flats. Property Owner

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.
