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.

Jeff, the owner, could not do enough for us and wanted to ensure we had everything we needed. I would highly recommend choosing this accommodation as it ticks every box and we certainly couldn't fault it. Perfectly situated backing on to woods and the most loveliest pub, Logan Rock Inn, approximately a 3 minute walk away (tip: take a torch with you). Delightful place and fully equipped even down to washing up liquid and milk on arrival. 5 stars well deserved! Thank you for everything Jeff x

It's just so tempting to stay indoors, tucked up beside the woodburner, surrounded by beautiful things instead of going for healthy walks on the glorious coast. There's a huge and eclectic selection of novels, books on art and biographies of people who are actually interesting, mini works of art and intriguing objects, and a proper kitchen. It's charming and unique and only lacks a spatula. Owners are very friendly and helpful. Definitely worth getting out walking as there are few places more beautiful.
