Find the ideal Porthleven holiday cottages and discover one of Cornwall's most appealing coastal towns. Located in south-west Cornwall, Porthleven is an old fishing village which has retained its period charm. Clustered around the harbour and its distinctive clock tower, the town is close to dune-backed beaches where the surf is always reliable. Head to Land's End to see the vast Atlantic stretch away, or spend days at family-friendly theme parks. With cottage accommodation, you can enjoy Porthleven at its best.
The town of Porthleven is small and walkable, with a clutch of outstanding seafood restaurants which make the most of the fishing fleet's freshly landed catch. The dramatic coastal scenery has helped to make it a centre for artists as well as chefs, and there are plenty of small galleries to browse while you explore the town. Nearby, you can descend into restored tin mines, wander idyllic manor gardens, or ride coasters and pet wild animals at fun parks like Flambards. And the coast is always appealing, combining wide sandy expanses, easy access, and some of the best waves in Europe. So if you love to board, Porthleven holiday cottages will be a great option.
Local accommodation can be the springboard for endless activities in the Porthleven area. For instance, you can hire wetsuits, boards, and even windsurfing rigs at surf shops and ride the demanding swells that hit Porthleven Beach. You can swim sedately at Loe Bar beach, head out sea kayaking with expert guides, or stay on dry land and tee it up at excellent golf courses like Mullion. Whether you surf, swim, hike, or swing a club, having your own cottage lets you store kit, crash out in the evening, and enjoy privacy when cleaning off mud and sand.
There's no better way to visit Porthleven than self-catering accommodation. Find cottages in town for easy restaurant and pub visits, or choose beach-side properties for convenient surfing and swimming. Mix privacy, comfort and convenience with a place of your own in one of Cornwall's finest destinations.
