Property code: OC-LAMPHO

Set in a quiet location with incredible panoramic views across Mounts Bay yet close enough to the centre of Porthleven to reach everything on foot, this modern and well-equipped property is the perfect base for a family or group to enjoy a wonderful seaside holiday. Porthleven has a host of shops, restaurants and pubs to choose from, offering freshly caught seafood straight from the harbour. The town also has several art galleries to visit, including the Customs House Gallery and the Old Lifeboat House, both half a mile from the property. For sunbathing, rock pooling and water sports, the long and sandy Porthleven beach is right on your doorstep. Leaving Porthleven, wander to Loe Bar, 1.5 miles along the coast path, and explore the local area with your furry friend. Visit the old tin mine at Levant Mine and Beam Engine near St Just (20 miles away), the must-see castle and tidal island, St Michaels’ Mount, at Marazion (8 miles), or the wonderful Minack Theatre at Porthcurno, 22 miles away. Children will also love Flambards Theme Park, 3.5 miles from the property.

To take advantage of the incredible views, the house is upside down, with both bedrooms on the ground floor. The twin room has an en-suite bathroom and there’s also a shower room on the ground floor. All the living space is upstairs as well as another separate WC. The large, light living/dining area has panoramic views and comfy sofas to relax in at the end of a busy day on the beach. The modern kitchen has further dining space with a breakfast bar and two tall chairs, perfect for chatting to the chef or grabbing a quick bite to eat.

Outside is an enclosed terrace with a dining table and chairs, ideal for relaxing with a drink or dining alfresco.

The Lamp House and Neptune House share an EV charger (7.4kWh charger with a Type 2 connector). Guests will be charged on a 'pay as you go' basis via an App that you will need to download. Please bring your own charge cable as this will not be supplied. Full details will be provided on arrival.

Fantastic property with amazing views. Everything you could possibly need in a property was there. Even enough pots and pans for a Sunday roast! Would happily stay again.

We have just returned from a fabulous fortnight in Porthleven, what a lovely Cornish harbour. The Lamp House is a wonderfully well equipped comfy dog friendly property with the most spectacular sea views. We have already recommended this property to family & hope to return in the not to distant future.

Beautiful house with an absolutely stunning view. Lovely walks straight from the front door. The kitchen was extremely well equipped, the best we have found in holiday accommodation. We would have no hesitation in recommending The Lamp House.

Beautiful views and comfortable cottage. Good weather - unfortunately no garden furniture - this was a shame as it was included on the property information and we werent able to sit outside. Perhaps you could check this for other occupants? Very disappointed we could not sit outside
