Overview

About the property

Our 2 double bedroomed cottage is a few hundred yards from the beautiful fishing Port of Porthleven. It has a fully fitted kitchen, separate dining room and lounge. The property has the added bonus of a conservatory (will sleep an additional 2 people, on a sofa bed, but does not completely black out) as well as an enclosed garden. It has free Wi Fi, sky TV. The patio area leading from the conservatory has a luxury Gas BBQ, fire pit and seating for 8. Idea for those al fresco meals or chilling with a glass of wine! Bookings are for a minimum of 7days sat-sat

Very conveniently located property for the charming Porthleven.

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable and equipped property located at the top end of the town.

Parking at property sometimes difficult as no designated parking spot ( although we always managed to find a spot).

We Would recommend property to others and would not hesitate to use it again as a base to explore this beautiful area.

Excellent property and location

  • 5 of 5

Lovely house all modern 4 Tv's, wifi, great kitchen, big oven, American fridge freezer, tassimo coffee machine, nutri bullet, microwave, washing machine, dryer. Outside toilet and storage. Parking available at front of property and opposite house. Does get busy with cars as harbour short walk down the hill. Few steps down to get to front door. Garden sloped with lovely decking area. We took our dog and he loved it. Upstairs bathroom and 2 double bedrooms. Loads of books, dvds, games to play, lots to keep children busy. sky Tv in lounge and bedroom. Great facilities in house, we really enjoyed staying here. Stairs are a bit steep in middle of the night put the light on! Beautiful staircase and wood is a work of art. Bin day on Tuesday night, full recycling also. BBQ in garden and firepit although we didn't use. Great for a family. Porthleven is a lovely harbour town with great restaurants, need to book for evening meals if in a party as they get busy, the harbour pub serves good food all day, restaurants finish for lunch at 2.30 start again at 6.30. My family stayed in 3 different houses but this one was far superior, would love to go again. Owner very approachable and helpful. Keypad in place to collect key from. Offered to change beds and clean halfway through our 2 week stay. Could do with a parking cone to put outside gate as my disabled dad struggled at times when neighbours parked over driveway. Apart from that would recommend to everyone. Had a fabulous 2 weeks here.

Fantastic accommodation everything you could want and more

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleasantly surprise by just how big this property was. Loads of room for our family of 4.

The kids were happily occupied playing with the selection of toys and in the garden in between trips to the harbour and beach.

A lovely modern house with everything you could want and more.

5mins walk from the harbour and shops.

Porthleven is beautiful and has some wonderful restaurants.

The beaches at Porthcurno and The Lizard are close by and we'll worth a visit.
