Sea Cottage is a cosy, recently refurbished, semi-detached cottage, situated just above the beach and has super views of The Bay from every window. It is only a few minutes' walk to the centre of Porthleven village in one direction, and to the National Trust's Penrose Estate, with its woodland walks, in the other. Ideal for up to three people and comfortably furnished, Sea Cottage is a great base to explore Porthleven and the local area from, or you may want to go further afield, as some of Cornwall's most iconic landmarks, such as St Michaels Mount, are only 20 minutes away by car. Wake up to the most glorious sea views and take your morning coffee marvelling at the ever changing scene, then after a day exploring, pour a glass of your favourite tipple to sit and watch the sunset before cosying up on the sofas to plan your next days adventure.

Sea Cottage benefits from access to the beach which is just a few yards down the road.

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!

Lovely location to stay have visited many times. Cottage in ideal location which was lovely and clean and warm. Had a great time.

We had a fabulous stay at Sea Cottage in March this year! We found the cottage very clean, cosy and comfortable and the perfect base for exploring Porthleven and further afield! We loved waking up to uninterrupted direct views over the sea and towards the harbour! A big thank you for an excellent welcome pack, best scones we have had in a long time and wine was a lovely touch too! Only a small cottage but perfect for the two of us and overall, we couldn’t fault the place and will be back again!

To stay here was so beautiful. It was so nice decorated and very clean. The view from the house was so amazing. Very near to all important points. We wish, we come back in the future.

Super holiday in a special place.

The cottage was beautifully clean and very well-equipped. It was in an excellent location and suited us perfectly.

Lovely and clean... Great welcome pack including milk and tea.... I would definitely recommend staying here.... If you go in the colder months there's a lovely fire... ..Town centre just around corner... Beach, right in front of you.... South West coast path for great walks

Lovely cottage next to the sea. Only drawback is parking

Reply from Aspects Holidays

It's great to hear you enjoyed your stay at Sea Cottage. Although there is no allocated parking for the cottage advertised, there is on-road parking about 100yards away from the property, availability depending. You can also briefly stop outside the cottage to unload and load your vehicle, which could be helpful on arrival and departure days! Katy, Customer Services
