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.

Beautiful, peaceful, modern, rustic & cosy!!

5 of 5
Fabulously renovated old farm building, very comfortable and cosy, but also plenty of light and space, it’s ideally situated in a lovely tiny hamlet far from the madding crowd!! fantastic location for visiting all the local secret little coves and beaches or for hiking the stunning coastal paths in the area. The owners are very friendly and helpful and pretty much leave you to it. Get the little wood burner lit after a day of beach trekking and all is good with the world!! I’d highly recommend a stay!!

Lovely self-contained apartment, great views of Mounts Bay (saw dolphins following the fishing boats one morning) Great local fish shops in Newlyn down the road and a really good location for walking the Coastal path. Plus welcoming and friendly hosts.
