  • "Pen Chy is a great property with lovely views of the countryside and towards the sea."

    It had everything we needed and the welcome pack for our dog was a nice touch! There was parking for one car on site and the owners directed us to other nearby parking places. It took us around 20 minutes to walk to the centre of Porthleven. One friend found it difficult to walk back up to the property but it was always easy to organise a taxi. The Atlantic Inn was nearby and offered a good range of food and drink. We had a relaxing week and would recommend the property.

  • "There was not enough advertising only room for one car."

    The yard you have to park your car in let's the property down alot. The owner was very flippant when asked about parking our other car to the point of rudeness.

    We appreciate your comments but It is a shame that these guests did not read the listing properly before booking. It states parking for one car. There are two alternative parking spots, nearby, which they were directed to. Everyone else leaves glorious reviews in our guestbook and the whole experience of sharing Pen Chy has been a pleasure .

  • "The property was modern, clean and tidy and in a good location and the owners very friendly and helpful."

    The only problems we had were with 2 elderly dogs that found it difficult to manage the wooden staircase to the upper living area. If they were a year or 2 younger it wouldn't have been a problem for them. As a sea angler myself, I would have found it useful to know at the time of booking that Austen is a charter fishing skipper, but still we very much appreciated he brought us back some fresh fish!

  • "Pen-chy is one of if not the best holiday house we have ever stopped in."

    Everything you need and the living space is amazing so much light and views. Close enough to Porthleven to walk in too and enjoy everything it has to offer. Would highly recommend PenChy.

  • "Well equipped and clean holiday homes."

    Hosts made us really welcome and helpful with local knowledge. Long walk to the harbour so you may need to drive into the village. Easy access and well located for the south coast of Cornwall. Heston only a stones throw away and Penzance and the peninsula really close by. Would be happy to recommend.

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.

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.
