A holiday rental home or a holiday cottage in Porthcurno gives you freedom to explore Cornwall

Porthcurno is a small village and beach in the parish of St Leven. The lovely beach faces southwest in the west corner of Porthcurno Bay and is bordered by Green Bay, the Minack Theatre, Logan Rock and Pednvounder Beach. It is close to Penzance, Land's End and the villages and hamlets of Paul, Sheffield, Newlyn, Treen, Trethewey, Treen, St Buryan and Lamorna.

Places to stay in Porthcurno

The face of holiday accommodation in Cornwall is changing and many bed and breakfast hotels are being rebuilt with self catering holidays in mind. Property is in high demand in this area as people choose to let out a house or cottage as a means to a second income.

The coastline and cliffs around Porthcurno are areas of outstanding beauty and a holiday cottages give you much more freedom to explore Cornwall than a hotel. Self catering also means you can play, rest and eat when it suits you. Porthcurno has no commercial fishing boats, but they can be seen at the nearby coves of Penberth and Porthgwarra.

The extensive coastal path maintained by the National Trust attracts walkers, cyclists, birdwatchers, photographers and nature lovers. There is an ancient bridleway close to Trendrennen Farm that is popular with the Ramblers Association. Visitors often miss the Porthgwarra Valley and the perfectly secluded suntrap of Porthchapel beach, which is just a mile away from the holiday cottages in Porthcurno.

A lovely cottage in a lovely location, with everything needed for a comfortable and memorable stay

5 of 5
A lovely place to stay, in a quiet, peaceful location, high up above the village and with views out over the sea. The cottage - a separate wing of the farmhouse - was very well equipped with everything we needed, with some lovely extras: a delicious Cornish cream tea on arrival and a supply of fuel for the wood-burner: especially welcome on the couple of days when we had traditional Cornish weather. A lot of thought and care has gone into making this a comfortable and special place to stay.
