Kitto's Place

£530 - £1065 per week

This lovely family bungalow is located in a quiet area of Porthleven, just a few minutes' walk from the harbour. Kitto's Place sleeps five in three bedrooms and has plenty of space for a family to enjoy some quality time together. The well-equipped kitchen with a walk-in larder is perfect for preparing hearty breakfasts to set you up for a day of exploring the village, or maybe venture further afield, as the property also benefits from having off road parking so you can come and go with ease. The enclosed rear garden is ideal to enjoy warmer, summer evenings, with its countryside views, and the BBQ means you can grill some fabulous local seafood for dinner, while the children run off any last remnants of energy before bed. Being pet friendly, even your four-legged family member can join you too.

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!
