Description

If the stunning sea views from the first floor living room weren’t exceptional enough, the secret garden perched on the cliff in front of the property provides a little oasis that will make you fall in love with this property. Located on Mount Pleasant Road in Porthleven, the property looks out over the iconic clock tower on the harbours edge. Storm chasers from all over the county flock to this location during bad weather to witness the waves crashing over the clock tower and into the harbour; it really is worth enduring the bad weather to see! On the ground floor there is a fully equipped kitchen and dining room, as well as a twin bedroom and shower room. On the first floor is the spacious living area with open fire and stunning sea views, along with the master bedroom and family bathroom. Unfortunately this property is unable to accommodate pets or children under 10 years.

Porthleven is a bustling fishing harbour in West Cornwall and offers a great selection of restaurants, shops and pubs that are open all year round. From Easter to October there is a local craft market during the weekends, with the famous food and music festival in the spring time that sees thousands of visitors flock to the harbour for a weekend full of food, drink and great entertainment. There are plenty of sandy beaches dotted along this stretch of coastline, with Praa Sands and Perranuthnoe popular for surfers. The historic site of St Michael’s Mount is just a 15 minute drive away; a great place to spend the afternoon with the whole family.

Map

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.
