    “We’ve been staying at this cottage every summer for nearly 20 years and after several improvements over many years, the standard isn’t as good now : no change of sheets or linen even though we stayed two weeks; garden furniture not as comfortable as the previous seats (one even broke), lack of comfort of mattresses in single beds room, lack of outside space because of huge garden « box » with about a dozen cacti plants, no bath carpet, just a few hangers for 4 guests (we left those for children’s clothes after buying some items for family).”


    In the kitchen, basic equipment not renewed : one oven dish (when there used to be several), no more cups (only mugs), ONLY TWO TEA SPOONS (we bought some, but took them with us). After last year’s stay, we mentioned that the fridge needed checking regularly (too much ice which prevented door from closing properly). This wasn’t done. When arriving at the cottage, over the years, we used to have a bottle of wine, flowers, scones, clotted cream (even tea sometimes): this year, only a bottle of wine. The price was increased and the alibi of Covid meant we had to arrive later, which meant a small part of the first day. I’m sorry to have to tell you this, but we were slightly disappointed this year. Best regards. Patrick CURTAUD

The property

Pegs is a traditional fishermans cottage in the heart of Porthleven with sea views.

With bags of character and style, it is a firm favourite with family, friends and couples.

The sunroom provides a warm spot and entrance to the generously proportioned living area.

With wood floors, white panelled walls, an exposed stone end-wall and ceiling beams, the open plan ground floor provides a light and welcoming sitting room with extremely comfortable sofas and chairs, attractive dining area and well equipped farmhouse-style kitchen.

The deep silled cushioned window seats offer cosy nooks for reading and weather-watching across the sea.

Upstairs are two bright and stylishly dressed bedrooms with enticing double and twin beds, all with crisp white linen and quirky jewel coloured throws.

The bathroom has a three-quarter bath and a powerful shower-head above.

In front is a slate paved planted patio providing a sheltered haven with room for table and chairs for lazy breakfasts, al fresco dining and sunbathing.

The cottage lies a few metres from the three mile stretch of sandy beach and is a gentle amble from the bustling village harbour with its shops, art and craft galleries, outstanding restaurants and pubs.

Porthleven, near the ancient market town of Helston, is a fusion of working village and holiday resort.

For those that enjoy an inspirational coastal walk, the south-west coastal footpath is on the doorstep, en-route to Lands End in the west and The Lizard in the south.

Within easy driving distance, the historic port of Penzance and the sublime beaches at Porthcurno, Praa Sands and Marazion, all nestling in Mounts Bay, are easy must-do day-trips.

Peg's makes the perfect bolt-hole for an all season break, a snug winter hide-away or romantic, relaxing escape.

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.
