Lovely stay at Trelawn
We had a great week and would recommend this property.
Lovely clean property.
Beautiful property, lovely and clean. Everything needed was provided. garden. We didn't park/ reverse into the space by the garage but mainly across the road because we thought it would be extremely dangerous as it was on a bend with fast moving traffic coming round who would not have seen us going in & out. Otherwise we had a lovely week in the house.
Everything was perfect for us at Trelawn, when we arrived the small touches impressed us greatly. The location to Porthleven harbour shops and restaurants is brilliant we will definitely be coming back.
Your time taken to review Trelawn is appreciated and we look forward to welcoming you back!
Excellent, well equipped, good location, lovely garden
Good communications with host. High standard resources throughout. Very comfortable.
Could have done with a night light to aid nocturnal trips to the bathroom, also more info on recycling. Wifi was weak downstairs, possibly reposition hub? Generally excellent though!
Beautiful property in an ideal location.
The property is comfortably furnished & spotlessly clean. The lovely decking area in the garden is perfect for catching the sun; we went in October & still managed to have breakfast outside on the sunnier days.
It's a short walk to the harbour, all the various eating places & amenities Porthleven has to offer.
A nice touch was the cream tea & wine which had been left as a welcome - perfect!
Would definitely recommend a visit.
Great to read you enjoyed your stay at Trelawn and yes, the decking is a fantastic spot to enjoy the garden taking in the sunshine
lovely cottage property
Lovely clean cottage which has been recently refurbished. Very comfortable with everything you would need for a week away with the kids. Lots of great places to eat + drink with some fantastic beaches nearby. Would certainly recommend
Thankyou for taking the time to review your stay at Trelawn. Glad you enjoyed it here in Porthleven and we hope to welcome you back again soon
Porthleven lies within the Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and exudes Cornish charm and tradition. Set in the middle of a huge sweeping bay, the beach at Porthleven is ideal for a relaxing family holiday.
The temperate climate in Porthleven and this area of Cornwall is partly due to warm waters of the Gulf Stream. There are consequently numerous palm trees in Porthleven. The relaxing atmosphere is enhanced by the white painted buildings, the light reflected from the sea, and the fresh air.
Porthleven has arguably the most impressive harbour in Cornwall, being constructed during Napoleonic times. Small fishing boats land their daily catch in Porthleven, much of which is sold in Porthleven cafes and restaurants and the award winning Quayside fishmongers.
With the increasingly popular Porthleven Food & Music Festival, this pretty fishing village has earned a place on Cornwall’s ever-growing foodie circuit. With big names such as Antony Worrall Thompson as patron of the festival and venues such as Rick Stein, Kota and its sister Kota Kai, recent TV star Amélie's and in addition to renowned pubs; The Atlantic, Harbour and Ship Inn, this seaside town is well worth investing some foodie time.
Around Porthleven harbour there are historic buildings, many constructed at the same time as the harbour around 200 years ago. Many fishermen's cottages and net lofts are located around the harbour area.
Porthleven beach is separated from the harbour by the granite pier which lies in front of the Porthleven Institute and famous clock tower often featured in TV weather reports during the winter storms.
Due to the strict conservation measures Porthleven in Cornwall remains an unspoilt, working harbour. Porthleven attracts visitors who want to get away from it all and be inspired by the surroundings and the way of life. Activities include local boat trips, fishing trips and kayaking, all from Porthleven harbour.
Porthleven has a good range of interesting shops and galleries. You will find friendly personal service in shops that are independently owned and run by local people. There is also a very well stocked supermarket with delicatessen and off licence, and chemist shop with pharmacy in Porthleven. Also, the historic market town of Helston is only 3 miles from Porthleven. In Helston there are many shops, supermarkets, banks and building societies and other services that you may require during your visit.
There is a regular bus service linking Porthleven, Helston, Penzance and Falmouth.
Walking the coast path from Porthleven harbour will quickly reveal spectacular views. Walking the coast path to the east takes you above the sandy beaches and onto Gunwalloe Church Cove Beach that provided the setting for the shipwreck scene on BBC's Poldark.
Walking the coast path out of Porthleven in a westerly direction takes you above rock coves and beside farmland. Disused mine workings and other memorials to past times in Cornwall can be found along the way.
There are many things to do all within easy reach of Porthleven including;
Loe Bar, Near Porthleven. A sandbank created by storms which cut off the Cober Valley from the sea. The bar was formed in the 12th century and until then merchant ships could sail up the estuary as far as Helston. Beside Loe Bar is Loe Pool, the largest freshwater lake in Cornwall. Here the distance between Loe Pool and the sea is about 200 yards. Loe Bar is two miles gentle walking from Porthleven, or no more than a mile if you drive to the car park.
