Porthleven in General ... It is the most southerly port on the island of Great Britain and was originally developed as a harbour of refuge, when this part of the Cornish coastline was recognised as a black spot for wrecks in days of sail. Nearby Loe Bar was particularly infamous.
Newest Review: ... and a grassy hill. We then walked down through the village to the beach. The village itself has a wonderful feel to it and is very picturesque and quaint. There's lots of lovely little stone washed cottages around and much of it felt like something out of a film. Whilst walking through the town we saw somebody had left a bowl of water out for dogs with a watering can next to it and a sign ... more

We hadn't planned on visiting Porthleven on our Cornwall holiday last year but we were driving around looking for a dog friendly beach and happned to stumble across it. And I'm so glad we did. Porthleven is situated in South West Cornwall on the coast between the Lizard and Lands End. When we arrived in the town we drove around for a bit to see if doggies were allowed on the beach and, on finding out they were, went to find somewhere to park. Many of the streets are quite narrow so go fairly slowly and be careful. We eventually found a car park and it was free so that's definately a good deal! I can't remember exactly where this car park was but was next to ... Read the complete review

Porthleven is a beautiful little village close to Helston which happened to be one of the places where I spent my Honeymoon many years ago. We stayed at the Tye Rock Hotel, an imposing building on the outskirts of the town on the cliff tops. Because of its position the town gets battered by the winter storms that hit this part of Cornwall. I always remember some of the photo's the owner of the Hotel had of waves literally crashing into the Hotel despite the fact it was as I say sat on the cliff tops. The village itself is picturesque with 2 pubs and a couple of restaurants. There is also a lovely little tea room that has the most amazing ... Read the complete review

Porthleven is a small cornish town with a great harbour situated on the coast near Helston on the south coast of cornwall, quite often this lovely town gets battered by the harsh seas in winter and in some of the shops you can see pictures showing the damage the ferce sea has done in past times. There isn't a lot here, the harbour is nice, a few nice pubs and if you go round the town you can get to a beach past the church which is nice in good weather. A bit further up the beach you will see loe pool which the beash acts as a sandback between the sea and this huge lake, you can walk around this lake and its lovely. The huge house on the ...

Continuing my desire to become a Cornish resident, whilst staying on the Lizard peninsula I decided to visit the seaside harbour town of Porthleven to seek a job as a boatbuilder. In this I was again unsuccessful, and the reason for this you will shortly find out, but the town was indeed very nice so I'll tell you of it. Could the fact be that it has two pubs ?? If one heads towards Lands End from Helston on the A394, a left turn after about a mile will bring you to Porthleven. Now always one to feed you Very Useful information, this is the most southerly port in Britain and both a working village and a holiday centre. To also continue with my education of ...

Well it was two years ago that my mum had decided since she started her new business, she needed a holiday, and much to my disappointment (at first may i add), she annouced that we were going to Cornwall. Her fiance was brought up round this area, and had not been back there for some years as this was quite a traumatic era of his life as his mother 'disowned' him (long story) and was brought up in a children's home. As soon as we arrived, i was firstly simply just impressed with this beautiful harbour, which our rented house was overviewing. The house was perfect, with a gorgeous marble fireplace, all Art deco. I was amazed, and knew now ... Read the complete review
