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.

Inside, the house is very well furnished, comfortable and clean ... a very comfortable stay indeed. And the owners were always exceedingly helpful.

                                                                                                      4 of 5

It is an easy walk into the village but a bit steep on the way back. If the weather is bad there is no need to go out, you can sit in the lounge/dinner and watch the view through the large corner windows. There is parking in the road outside the house, which is the last property in the road at the top of the hill. There are several good cafes and restaurants in the village. An excellent property.
