  • “The house inside was great, it had everything that we needed for a comfortable holiday.”

    We felt the outside area was let down. The back yard had a table and chairs but was surrounded on 3 sides with high grey walls, there was no plants or anything to brighten it up at all and it just felt very unloved and had zero wow factor

    We were glad that the visitors thought the house inside was great and enjoyed a comfortable holiday. As the picture of the patio on the Sykes website shows, the rear high wall running the length of the house, offers privacy and is painted white. There are shrubs, bulbs and a flowering bush, planted in the raised bed at one end of the patio, which is further enclosed by the rear wall of the house and a small side wall. The patio is swept and cleaned weekly and the patio furniture is new for the season. - Sykes owner relations

The property

This newly updated detached modern cottage is perfectly located in the heart of Porthleven, a small, picturesque harbour town and fishing port in south west Cornwall.

Situated between Land’s End and Lizard Point, this lovely cottage exudes Cornish charm and comfort and is the perfect base for an ideal family holiday.

Tucked away behind the main street, this delightful cottage, with off road parking for two cars and an enclosed garden, is an upside down house with both bedrooms being on the ground floor, and the comfortable, well-designed, living area on the first floor.

This consists of a kitchen with dining area, (divided from the sitting area) where you can relax with a refreshing drink whilst planning the day ahead.

Outside, the patio is the ideal place to relax after a day spent touring or on the beach.

It is worth getting up early one morning to see the small fishing boats land their daily catch on the harbour, much of which is sold in the local cafés and restaurants, as well as the award-winning fishmongers.

Porthleven has for many years attracted visitors who want to get away from it all and be inspired by the beautiful natural surroundings and the way of life.

Local boat trips, fishing trips and kayaking are all available from the harbour.

With a choice of superb restaurants, cafes and pubs all within a couple of minutes' walk from the cottage, as well as art and craft galleries and individual shops to peruse, Porthleven really is the perfect holiday town.

Add to this the unspoilt beach and a location that easily allows you to explore the magnificent Lizard Peninsula and all its coves and pretty villages, and you will see why this cottage offers you a holiday that you will always remember.

Any one looking to book a break from the 19th of April 2019, please contact the office to negotiate a price.

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.
