  • Mr Stevens

    “Excellent modern accomodation with everything you need.”

    Very comfortable and only a short walk down the hill to the harbour. Most comfortable bed ever in a holiday rental. Will definately look to book again for 2021.

The property

A stylish and contemporary cottage, Pen Chy, newly built in 2020, is a reverse-level property enjoying a fantastic position on the Cornish coast in the village of Porthleven.

Sleeping up to four guests, Pen Chy has a spacious and light interior, and is within easy reach of many popular Cornish towns, villages and attractions.

On the first floor, discover an amazing living space, receiving an abundance of natural light from the many windows, and using a mix of neutral colours and rich wood furnishings to create a natural yet contemporary style.

The kitchen is fully fitted with integrated appliances so you can cook up your family favourites on the induction hob, while the dining area presents a great space to gather together at the end of the day, in the winter months being warmed by the woodburning stove.

Choose to spend the evening winding down with a film playing on the wall-mounted Smart TV, or make use of the superb slate balcony accessed from French doors from the sitting area, you can enjoy a Cornish sunset while sipping a glass of wine.

Retire to your bedroom on the ground-floor, choosing from either the king-size bedroom, with an oak bed frame and furniture and an en-suite shower room, or the twin bedroom with shared bathroom, home to a beautifully fitted bath and walk-in shower.

Porthleven Beach has three miles of golden sands, with waters offering experienced surfers some strong undercurrents and surf to play with, and when the tide is out you can stroll along the beach all the way to Loe Bar.

A walkers heaven, the Penrose Estate can be joined from Loe Bar and offers a variety of walking routes through to Helston and along the coast.

Explore the coastal footpaths towards the Lizard Point, England's most southerly point with spectacular coastal views of the scenic cliffs, and while in the area see the Bolenoew Animal Sanctuary where you can befriend the resident horses, donkeys and other farm animals.

Embark on a kayaking or paddleboarding tour with Vertical Blue Adventures, based in Porthleven, you can receive expert tuition before heading onto the water to see the spectacular coastline up close.

Other attractions within reach include St Michael's Mount in Marazion, The Minack Theatre in Porthcurno, and the pretty harbour town of Penzance.

Enjoy a fabulous stay at Pen Chy while you enjoy the delights of Cornwall.

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.
