Positioned on the Lizard Peninsular, on the south Cornish coast , Porthleven is a cracking location. Good restaurants and traditional pubs blend with craft shops and cafes. The internationally recognised surfing reef attracts year round interest. On our doorstep is the stunning Penrose estate managed by the National Trust. Wooded trails provide excellent walking & cycling and link with the nearby market town of Helston.

Along the beach from the village is Loe Bar and Pool, an impressive freshwater lake separated from the sea by a wide sand bar. A little further afield is the sandy beach at Praa Sands, the rocky inlet of Prussia Cove and dramatic Rinsey Head, with old tin mine stacks, towering precariously above the cliffs. There is an excellent 18 hole golf links at Mullion and beyond, the rest of Cornwall waits to be discovered; from fun-filled family attractions to art galleries and of course the spectacular coastal footpaths.
