“Superb Inspirational Location Anytime Of The Year”
Reviewed February 4, 2018 for a stay in January 2018

I love Porthleven and I could not have picked a better location or a better property. A home away from home, The Lamp House is obviously a well-loved second home, superbly equipped from great sheets and beds, to a full range of kitchenware and a super comfy living room with views to die for and a great sound system and Netflix TV for evening entertainment. We all loved, loved being here - the surrounding views of the sea were completely transfixing whatever the Winter weather. The house is very welcoming and it was a pleasure dealing with Andy & Jane. Top of my favourite places to stay in and return to.

“Pleasant house, excellent location”
Reviewed January 26, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

This house, The Lamp House, is ideally located within 10 minutes walking distance from Porthleven village center. In Porthleven, there is a small supermarket and a wet fish store. Sainsbury's at Helson is at 12 minutes drive.
The house features great sea views, lots of space, quiet location.
Also good qualita appliances, power shower and a good window insulation.
Definitely a house to recommend.
While there, it is an absolute must to visit (1) Kynance Cove just north-west of the Lizard and (2) Porthcurno beaches and bays, south of Lands End. Both MUST be seen at LOW TIDE to have a proper and safe access ! Another nice place is Church Cove.

“A super, bright, comfortable holiday home in a great location for exploring local port and wider areas of Cornwall.”
Reviewed April 17, 2013 for a stay in September 2012

The Lamp House is a lovely holiday home. I have stayed there six or seven times and am looking forward to returning in June. A very pleasant homely place to spend a morning or afternoon if the weather is bad, or to come back to if you have had a day out. Always immaculately clean on arrival. It has a large panoramic view looking over the sea from the lounge of the first floor. Walk into the local fishing port where there is a lot going on, places to eat, market stalls, fresh produce to try, interesting boutiques. Or go on local cliff walks, beach walks or venture further afield by car to the north or south coasts. I love it.
