  • "A really stylish and comfortable property."

    It's in the garden of the owners but surrounded by delightful gardens and safe for dogs. A quiet location but just a few minutes drive from cliff path and the many independent shops cafes and restaurants in Porth Leven.

    Lovely little touches on arrival from owners! Short walk into town where there are some lovely places to enjoy a drink and something to eat! Highly recommend

  • "A beautifully presented cottage in a quiet rural setting."

    Welcomed with a delicious cream tea, flowers and cold drinks in the fridge. Jake a very friendly and helpful host. The garden is slightly smaller than the pictures show, the outside shower was very useful for hosing down feet and sandy dogs. We spent a lot of time out exploring, the cottage was warm and cosy to come back to of an evening. Overall a good time in this well thought out cottage.

  • "Lovely accommodation had a nice fresh and airy feel to it."

    The information pack was excellent it had all the information we needed including some very helpful walk information and I loved the personal touch of seeing the before and after pictures. A lot of thought and care has gone into this property and I would highly recommend it.

  • "Excellent accommodation, we loved everything about it."

    The quality of the fittings and white goods, and the keen eye for design that has gone into presenting the ‘cottage’. We also loved the garden, so Cornish with tropical looking plants. The owners have gone above and beyond. Thank you.

    Greeted by cream tea including homemade scones and jam. Owners very friendly and accommodating as I unfortunately was on crutches with quite a large step into property so a lower step was made! Brilliant. Would definitely recommend

  • "If you are looking for a haven of peace and tranquility to get away from it all Chi Lowarth is the perfect place to rest and unwind."

    Depending on how fast you walk, Porthleven is 20-30 minutes away or 5 mins in the car. There are several walks close by which the owners have put in the welcome literature if you have a dog with you or just fancy a walk. You can also order fresh eggs which are lovely from their rescue hens. The lodge is well equipped and tastefully decorated, very comfortable and has everything you need. Attention to detail is perfect. Chi Lowarth is a hidden gem that is well worth a visit.

    The property has been very thoughtfully equipped and decorated Our small dog enjoyed walking around the daffodil fields. Very minor points: Add that a hairdryer is provided in the description. Full TV reception would have been good but we did not miss it.

    What is special is that it is a purpose built holiday home and not a home that could have been let long term to a local family. Devon and Cornwall need more places like this

  • "We had a fantastic stay!"

    The property was lovely and homely and ideal to come back to after exploring all of the beautiful places nearby. On arrival the check in was easy, everything was spotless and there were so many lovely finishing touches. We had plenty of afternoons sitting in the sunshine overlooking the beautiful garden which was very peaceful. The location was great for dog walks and a short drive from various parts of the coast. We would love to return!

  • "We had a fantastic week, the weather was absolutely glorious but regardless of that the property is ideal and extremely comfortable with plenty of room."

    It is tastefully decorated and it's obvious the owners care. The garden around the property is small but adequate for us, plus we have two dogs and it worked well, fields easily accessible directly from the property. It is quiet and you are not overlooked in any way. I'm sure there is more positives to add but can't think immediately of all the things I loved about it. It was one of the best places we have stayed. The location whether driving or walking is ideal, its a 20-30 min walk into Porthleven, 15-20 min walk to Penrose estate (beautiful National Trust with great dog walks and access to Loe Pool and Loe Bar), 5 min drive into Porthleven (don't be surprised if you can't park in the town) but be prepared to park on the outskirts and walk in. Coastal paths accessible from there also. The town has everything you need and restaurants (good idea to book, they are excellent and popular) and shops allow dogs, which is a big deal, trust me. This is not criticism (because believe me we will visit again, fingers crossed they let us

This pet-friendly abode has a contemporary finish and is ideal for a romantic retreat, complete with an enclosed garden, off-road parking, ground-floor living, and secure storage for bikes and surfboards.

Inside, the bright and airy open-plan living space welcomes you to rustle up home-cooked meals in the well-equipped kitchen area, dine at the table for two, and relax in the sitting room; why not start the woodburning stove and choose a film on the Smart TV?

Local attractions include the National Trust's Penrose, Helston Railway to ride vintage locomotives, and historic mine ruins along the coast, such as Trewavas Mine.

Be sure to explore further afield with a walk along the scenic coastal path, whilst Marazion and the medieval St Michael's Mount, Penzance where you can sail to the Isles of Scilly, and the Bohemian St Ives are all within reach.

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.
