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!

Trelawn is in a great location, only a couple of minutes walk from the harbour. The house is wonderful and had everything we needed. We especially appreciated the enclosed garden for our six month old puppy

Fantastic location within easy walking distance of everything lovely Porthleven has to offer. Welcome goodies were a lovely thought & very much appreciated. Thank you

Lovely property in a perfect location only a short walk to the harbour and beach both of which were lovely. We had our 10 month old with us who absolutely loved the garden with plenty of space to kick a ball around!

Lovely property, garden well laid out and dog-secure. Short walk down to the harbour/pubs/shops - a nice stroll.

Lovely accommodation, as always with Aspect Holidays.

The house was comfortable( and eventually warm).Depending on your size of car,exiting the parking space is not advisable Without help from another person on the other side of the road.

Trelawn is brilliantly located a short work from the beautiful Porthleven harbour and all the wonderful food and shops. Large enough for a family of 5, with comfortable furnishings and a good sized garden. Had an absolutely lovely time and found the cost to be competitive. Would recommend.

We had a lovely week at Trelawn. It's a great property, nicely furnished and handily positioned for the harbour. It's well equipped and has a nice garden which has an outside tap, useful for rinsing out wet suits. It's always great to have a parking space just by the house, makes all the beach trips easier.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Trelawn. It was clean and nicely presented. The location was great and you could walk within 5 minutes to Porthleven. Great arrival package of Prosecco, scones, jam and cream at Trelawn. A really thoughtful touch. Porthleven is in an ideal spot to explore surrounding areas such as The Lizard, Lands End, St Michael's Mount and The Cornish Seal Sanctuary. We used the bus service to explore for two days which only cost £10 per day for a family of four to hop on and off buses. Drove out other days or stayed in Porthleven. Good eateries near by. We used the local Chinese restaurant twice. Excellent pizza from local pizza restaurant overlooking the harbour Thanks for a really special week.

Trelawn is a lovely large property with a secure garden in a supberb location.

Great place to stay, close to Porthleven harbour and beach. Brilliant for families with well equipped house, pleasant garden and off road parking,

Lovely spacious house! In a perfect location near Porthleven Harbour. Enclosed garden which is perfect for children to play outside safely. The beds at the property weren't very comfortable which was a shame but overall the house is very nice.

We had a lovely holiday at Trelawn. House was excellent. Garden was great for the dog safe and enclosed. Bathroom was nicely finished and clean. Kitchen was well stocked and the knives were wonderfully sharp! All beds were comfortable and clean crisp sheets. Highly recommend.

Thank you for a lovely stay at Trelawn. A really great house which was well equipped, with a lovely garden and plenty of space for our family of 4.
