The property

Set just a stone’s throw away from Porthleven Harbour in Cornwall is Fisherman’s Cottage.

This traditional, stone-built cottage has been refurbished to a good standard boasting white-washed walls and contemporary appliances as well as a characterful woodburning stove and exposed stone work; the perfect setting for couples seeking a romantic coastal break with their beloved canine companion.

Enter from street level into the light living room with its stripped floorboards and stylish leather sofa complete with woodburning stove; the perfect place to unwind after a full day of exploration in Cornwall.

From the living room, descend to the lower-ground-floor to find a kitchen/diner where you can have a delicious meal to be enjoyed around the dining table.

When the evening draws to a close, stairs lead up into the bedroom, which has a king- size bed and en-suite bathroom with bath and separate double size walk-in shower offering the choice of a relaxing soak or a quick freshen up.

To the rear of the property is a covered storage space suitable for body boards or hanging wetsuits to dry.

During the day, enjoy a leisurely stroll into the heart of Porthleven where you will find a good selection of cafes, shops, galleries and pubs including a small supermarket for your daily needs.

Porthleven is a fantastic base for holidays, while away sunny days upon the shores of Porthleven Beach, discover the Lizard Heritage Coast and its endless beaches and cliff top walks along the rugged coastline or venture west to find Marazion.

Here you can walk or take a boat (depending on the tide) to the iconic and breath-taking St Michael's Mount where you can tour the medieval castle and the sub-tropical gardens.

Venture to Praa Sands to test your swing at its 9-hole golf course or make your way to Loe Pool, the largest freshwater lake in Cornwall.

Whisk your loved one away for a romantic break at Fisherman’s Cottage.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £50.

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 it's 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 it's 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.
