Cornish Harbour Village home - Porthleven

Our home is a sunny, light filled bungalow with great views of the surrounding countryside and also sea glimpses too! We are only 15 mins walk from the harbour. We have three bedrooms, one with a double bed, one with a bunkbed and one with a single bed. We have a large, sunny lounge too complete with a wood-burning stove. We have a large sunny garden, with a big tree swing and a pond. There are lots of different seating areas in the garden and it`s definitely a sun trap as well as a great spot for watching the sunset too!
We have a cat too, Percy, who is pretty chilled and doesn`t require much looking after, just feeding.

About the location

We are 20 minutes walk from the beach and 15 mins walk to the harbour. We are close to all amenities in the popular harbour village of Porthleven, in the South West of Cornwall. Porthleven village has become well known recently as a foodie hub, with the 3 day Porthleven Food and Music festival running every April, attracting thousands of people. The likes of Rick Stein, Kota and The Square restaurants, with many others, means there`s always somewhere to go for excellent food, as well as a couple of pasty shops and of course fish and chip shops too!
We are 30mins drive from Falmouth, Penzance and St Ives and are on the edge of the Lizard area, a beautiful remote peninsula with great beaches and idyllic villages. We are also 20mins drive from the world renowned St Michaels Mount, an amazing place to visit.
Walking distance from Porthleven is the Penrose National Trust area, free to visit. Its a great place for cycling and walking, alongside the Loe Bar pool, with much wildlife and woodland. There`s a great cafe there too and also easy walking to Helston (40MINS) where you arrive at the boating lake, with various floating vessels to hire, also a cafe, park and a skate park.
Of course there are many other beautiful places to visit in Cornwall, but these are just the ones within a 30 minute drive.
