  • Mr Standing

    “Having stayed at this property a couple of times in previous years and given that it has not been occupied for a number of months we were surprised to find cob webs on the light fittings and on the walls.”

    We also had to open the bathroom window when having a shower as the extractor was ineffective.

The property

A light, bright and modern bungalow, Penrose is situated on the outskirts of Porthleven, just a short walk from the harbour and beach.

With a neutral look throughout, Penrose has a restful ambience, a lovely place to relax after a day of exploring.

The sliding doors in the kitchen and lounge lead out on to a private patio, flooding the property with sunshine and sea breeze on a fine day, and the patio itself offers a lovely spot for sunny breakfasts.

There are two calming double bedrooms, one with an immaculate en-suite.

The enclosed terraced garden has a patio on the lower level, and steps leading up to a bench where you can catch the last of the sun’s rays each evening.

Porthleven harbour is just a five minute walk from Penrose, a much-loved holiday destination which is popular throughout the year.

Holidays here are spent mooching around the town’s eclectic mix of shops and galleries, stopping by quirky little cafés for lunch, relaxing on the beach and crabbing from the quay.

Catch a fishing boat trip out of the harbour, hire a kayak or stand-up paddle board, cycle the paths at the nearby Penrose Estate, or simply grab a bag of piping hot chips and watch the world go by.

Perfectly located for those wishing to explore the Lizard Peninsula and west Cornwall, Penrose is a great choice for walkers, cyclists, families and couples alike.

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.
