We have recently returned from a weeks stay at Castaway in Porthleven from 20/9/19 to 27/9/19 I would like to say what a wonderful property which by far exceeded our expectations. It was very clean and well stocked with everything we were likely to need and more. It was exactly as described in the Information about it on line. I would not hesitate to return or recommend it to family and friends. We really enjoyed our stay there. Many thanks

Jacqui A,

House very comfortable and spacious. Felt like home-from-home with added luxuries – the bathrooms especially good! Will miss the views – the night lights around the harbour are lovely!

Bunyan Family,

Lovely house, everything we needed and more! Perfect games room for our 8 year old and plenty of good games for the older ones! We have been to Porthleven many times but the views from here are the best ever.

This is the 3rd time we’ve stayed at Castaway - found property spotlessly clean, everything you could need to make your stay as comfortable as possible, and as other guests have mentioned, a real home away from home. And with a fantastic view of the harbour - just perfect :-)

Mrs Angela S,

Just wanted to say we spent a fantastic week in Cornwall at the Castaway property in Porthleven. The owners have done a great job with the renovation and it felt luxurious as well as light, bright and airy. The views were every changing with spectacular sunsets. A lovely home from home that we would recommend to anyone.

Set on the west coast of the spectacular Lizard Peninsula, the little harbour town of Porthleven is the quintessential Cornish fishing port. Centred around the harbour, it boasts an array of cafés, restaurants and galleries and exudes a chilled, relaxed atmosphere. Porthleven is the most southerly working port in the UK, with fishing boats operating out of the harbour. This makes the town a great spot to enjoy some delicious seafood, straight from the fishing boats to the restaurants, it couldn’t be fresher!

Porthleven beach can be accessed from the town itself and provides a long expanse of sand which is separated into segments by several rocky outcrops. While away the glorious summer days relaxing on the beach with a locally made ice cream in hand!

Situated part way along a huge sweeping bay, it faces the Atlantic Ocean and is often on the receiving end of some mighty winter storms! A fabulous destination for a winter break; marvel at the awe-inspiring waves pounding the harbour walls from the cosy safety of the local pub!

The surrounding area doesn’t disappoint either; located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the views from every cove or clifftop are picture-perfect. Travel north-west and you’ll reach Marazion, home of St Michael’s Mount – an absolute ‘must’. South takes you to the tip of the Lizard Peninsula, Lizard Point, one of Cornwall’s most iconic spots.

You won’t tire of the walks and stunning scenery, but if you fancy a day out, try the Seal Sanctuary, Flambards or Trebah Gardens. Or, go a little further afield and you can explore Penzance, Land’s End and St Ives.
