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!

Had a lovely holiday at Ocean’s Edge - great location, clean, tidy & close to everything that Porthleven has to offer- fantastic

Lovely cottage with great location, can park on the street outside out of summer months. Little conservatory porch ideal for evening drink watching sunset. Comfortable bed, large well equipped kitchen, stairs a little narrow and fiddly, but overall one of the best cottages you could ask for. Porthleven is our favourite.

Absolutely love the views from this cozy cottage, and very convenient for all the amenities. Cream tea was a lovely treat.. The TV broke, but was replaced very quickly, outstanding service.

This property is highly recommended for anyone who loves the sea and appreciates lovely objet d’art connected with this beautiful coast.
