Beacon Crag is a ten minute walk down the Cliff Path to Porthleven which we used, we were told that a Taxi back would cost £5 but we never tried the service? Samanthia the Landlady is friendly and welcoming and responsible for the excellent breakfast that is served between 9 and 10am. We had Room 4 which was more than... More

This is worth every penny just for the spectacular location. The views are magnificent, the walk to the town and pubs and restaurants is convenenient and eliminates drinking and driving and Portleven parking problems. As we were staying in June, the need for a torch was not required but I agree with previous review, one would be needed when it... More

Sam is a great hostess and runs the Beacon Crag with great care and consideration. The location is great. The rooms are well appointed and the bed was very comfortable. Well pressed linen and great big towels were much appreciated. We had lots of hot water for showers at all times of day. Breakfast options are generous. The house sits... More

Room exactly as promised. Large double-bed, and splendid view from window. Brilliant cooked breakfasts. Everything very clean. As long as you are reasonably mobile, and do the walks in daylight, the 10 min stroll into the village pubs is a great way to end each day.

This has to be one of the best sea view locations on the Cornish Coast. The house is perched high on cliff with glorious views up and down the coast. It has a slightly isolated position away from the town, but it is an easy walk via the footpath to find an array of pubs and restaurants. Our room was... More

Magnificent views from every aspect, and friendly, helpful owners. Samantha's husband was a godsend when we found something amiss with our laptop, which we thought would require seeing to by a computer techie, but the two men nutted it out together - many thanks! :)

Lovely room, perfect location and a swift and easy walk into Porthleven. Brilliant coastal and inland walks (NT Penrose estate) on the doorstep. Really good breakfast and very friendly owner. Will definitely be back.

We discovered this little piece of Heaven a few years ago, and have stayed several times now. Beacon Crag is a splendidly restored and updated 19th century artist's house, built high on the cliffs above Porthleven, near Helston. There are only 4 (maybe 5?) rooms, the three I have experienced all have spectacular views of the coastline. I believe there... More

If I were to review this B&B solely on the premises and service it would be a three star review but still a B&B I would recommend. However, the beautiful setting and truly wonderful view we had from the rooms make this a four. The B&B itself is relatively modest, the rooms are smart and tidy but in no way... More

Location was stunning!!!! What a view!!! We stayed here for two nights and loved every minute of it. The room was great,very clean and comfortable with great sea view. Breakfast was great. It's only few minutes walk to city centre by costal path(would recommend a fleshlight when returning back to your room if it's night time). We would highly recommend!
