Loved Porthleven, great walk, great food. The owner is lovely.
From the moment we arrived it was top notch! From the welcome basket which was extraordinary and the toiletries, to the cleanliness of the cottage and the very tasteful way it was furnished, it was very homely and the wood stove made it very cosy, perfect for 2 people but also large enough for a family of 4! Everything you needed was there for a home from home! The cottage is a perfect distance from the town, we would highly recommend to anyone and hope it wont be too long before we return!
Merrilee is a beautiful cottage finished to a very high standard. The wood burner was a must on our rainy, windy week and made it all the more cosy. Amazing restaurants right on the doorstep in Porthleven, so did not get to try them all (think we will have to do 2 weeks next time). Fab burgers at Boo Koos in Helston if you fancy a drive, which was a new find for us on our 4th visit and The Mussel Shoal on the harbour of Porthleven was Superb. Went back twice. Will definately return.
Lovely cottage, very well presented, very clean and has everything you need for a holiday. We loved it. Very pleased with the booking, the cottage was lovely and we had a great time.
Beautiful cottage, very helpful owners. Lovely village - could move in!
An exceptionally charming property in a lovely location.
Porthleven is an unspoilt gem...easy access on good roads to all the places on your tick list. Shops, pubs and restaurants all soooooo friendly..and dog friendly too...we spent three of our days just mooching around the village and coastline...unheard of for us. Such a relaxing place. The property we rented..Merrilee..was lovely..well thought out and very comfortable...bed was amazing... and the owner left added touches which made such a difference after a long drive....fresh flowers, wine, milk , eggs and a cream tea all laid out. FAB. To have enjoyed our holiday this much with " not so good" weather, it must be a great place!
By far the best cottage we have stayed in in the last twenty years.
Will be booking to stay there again next year.
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.
