About the neighborhood
The area is a walkers paradise and there is nothing like a morning stroll along the coastal path, across the sand spit at Loe Bar, and on to Gunwalloe where you can have a superb pub lunch before returning home. Porthleven is a fantastic unspoilt traditional and active fishing village. With superb pubs, cafes, shops and award winning restaurants the harbour side is always bustling but rarely overcrowded like the tourist havens on the north coast. In fact Porthleven is often at its busiest on a stormy day when many locals gather around the harbour to watch the dramatic scenes of the enormous Atlantic waves crashing up against the cliffs. Just five minutes walk from the house you will find steps taking you down to Porthleven's beautiful sandy beach, the east side of which allows pets all ye...
How to get there
Porthleven lies to the south of Helston, about 5 hours drive from London. It can be easily reached from Newquay airport where you can hire a car. Trains from London stop at Camborne which is a 20 minute taxi ride away. You are best to approach the Lamp House from Helston taking the road to Loe Bar and then down Coopers Lane rather than going through Porthleven where the streets are very narrow.
