Chy an Mor

£593 - £1098 per week

Perched on the mighty cliffs of Porthleven Beach, Chy an Mor is undoubtedly one of the best places to sit and watch the ocean waves roll in. With more sea than sky on view, this sleeps two, reverse level, property has uninterrupted vistas of the glorious Cornish coastline as far as Mullion and Mousehole, across Mounts Bay. Relax and admire the seas' kaleidoscope of colours from the stylish sitting room. Or if you would prefer, soak up the sunshine from the balcony, or outside terrace, with a glass of something cool and crisp, whilst you watch the surfers ride the waves and the ships pass by.

Take a short stroll in to the village and enjoy a long leisurely lunch or delicious dinner in one of the countless restaurants and cafes Porthleven has to offer. However, if a quiet night in with a good book is more your thing, you can snuggle up on the sofa after a long day exploring all that Cornwall has to offer. Listen to the waves crashing just metres away from you whilst you drift off to sleep, this idyllic property the perfect romantic getaway for couples looking to escape the hustle and bustle.

Holidays in Porthleven

Whatever you love about Cornwall, we’re sure you'll find it while enjoying a holiday in Porthleven. Relax and enjoy the boats bobbing in the harbour, pull on the walking boots and join the coastal path to Rinsey and Praa Sands, take a short drive to nearby Marazion and the iconic St Michael's Mount, or hit the waves and surf until sunset.

This charming fishing town has a relaxing atmosphere; it's gorgeous in the Summer and dramatic during the Winter. The granite harbour and pier with its famous clock tower has become an iconic storm-watching spot during wild wintry weather and offers a tranquil setting on calmer days.

Take a short break out of season in Porthleven and avoid the hubbub on the roads and beaches. Soak up the sun on the harbour front and watch the fishing boats pass by. Catch the first glimpses of colour from the acres of Cornish daffodils in early spring with the sea as a back drop as you drive from coast to coast. With easy access to the coastal footpath, head east to discover Gunwalloe Fishing Cove, Polurnan Cliffs and Mullion Cove or head west and marvel at Praa Sands, Perranuthnoe and Marazion. 

Take a short walk from Porthleven and reach the coarse sand of Porthleven beach, reaching two miles south as far as Loe Bar, a sand spit separating the sea and forming Loe Pool, the largest freshwater lake in Cornwall.

Porthleven harbour is an enjoyable place to relax, with its cafés, pubs and restaurants providing the perfect place for you to sit outside and watch the world float by!

Top tip

Like storm watching? Visit in winter and you may be lucky enough to experience huge waves crashing over the clock tower!
