This is a beautiful little Cornish village, fine parking with views over the bay. Lovely cottages , some excellent walks and cosy tea rooms. The harbour is really pretty. Watch the fishing boats come in and out. So peaceful..

Narrow roads and limited parking. Very pretty. Lovely to see fishing boats pulled out of water and to have the sea crashing on the rocks.

We stumbled across portloe and it is the cutest little cove and mini harbour with access to the coastal path and with a hotel and a pub. Typical of hidden treasures on the Roseland Peninsula

A trip to revisit a childhood holiday many moons ago. Quaint, quiet and lovely. We used it as a base and explored near and far.

Very nice little village. There is not much to do there, but we enjoyed a peaceful walk with our dog before having dinner at the Ship Inn.

Beautiful harbour with a wealth of history. Great views from either side of the coastal path. If I had one suggestion, a quaint little traditional Cornish coffee shop is required so visitors can enjoy their visit for longer.

If you are talking about the Lugger, it has it's own car park. Otherwise if you pass the Lugger on your LH side after approx. 350 yards there is a village car park ( honesty box £2 all day) There is also a pub called The... More

Coastal Sea Path - Penzance or Falmouth? (12 Replies)
I'm planning a 7-10 day hike along the Southwest section of the Coastal Sea Path in September this year. But I'm unable to decide between the following two options; 1) Penzance to Falmouth, which includes stops in Porthleven, Lizard, Coverack and Helford, or 2) Falmouth to Plymouth, which includes stops at Mevagissey, Portloe, Portscatho, Polperro and Fowey. Does anyone have any recommendations? I don't mind the steep climbs and ascents and did hike the path a few years ago near Boscastle and...More

; 1) Penzance to Falmouth, which includes stops in Porthleven, Lizard, Coverack and Helford I have also walked all the Cornish coast on many occasions for many years. Although route 2 would offer nice scenery it in my opinion would not be as interesting and Stunning as route 1. Penzance to Lizard takes in st.Michaels Mount at Marazion (do a Google) then onto the Engine houses on the cliff edges at Rinsey before Porthleven. From here you will walk to Kynance Cove where your bound to see...More

Well, since no one else has answered... I've walked parts of both sections, and I think it is a coin toss. They are both great walking. I'd probably choose the 2nd option, but that's only because the area around Fowey and Polperro was my first introduction to the Cornish coastal walking and I had better weather there. I've been doing walking holidays in the UK since 1995, using a number of different companies. I have collected their brochures but never used Contour, but they have been...More

best way to get to cornwall from london (16 Replies)
This may have been answered in previous posts but I didn't see it upon a quick search. What's the best way to get to Cornwall from London? How long is the journey? I assume seeing Cornwall is best done by rental car? In particular we are interested in Portloe. Thanks so much for any help you can give!

I agree, Cornwall is best seen by car, it makes it easier and quicker to get around. Driving from London would take about 5-6 hours, you can get a route planner from www.multimap.co.uk, you will be able to put in the postcode of where you are travelling from in London, and your destination and it will give you directions. You could also come to Cornwall by train and hire a car here, easiest option would be train from Paddington to Truro, and then pick up a car. The train journey is around...More
