This former fisherman’s cottage in Porthleven is packed with traditional features and home comforts. Located half a mile from the picturesque harbour, you’ll have access to local seafood restaurants to try South Cornwall’s wares. The beach is so close (0.1 miles away), you can see it from your garden.

Get cosy in your home-from-home’s sitting room where the plump armchairs and two-seater sofa sit beside the wood burner effect electric fire. Grab a book or turn on the Smart TV and relax under the classic overhead beams. The open-plan dining room has a pine table and four chairs while the ground-floor, galley-style kitchen boasts Bosch appliances, trendy tiling and sea views. Head upstairs to the two double bedrooms, one of which is a small double - both have window seats where you can sit and take in the sea views. The shower room is also on the first floor.

Across the road from the house, you’ll find your private garden featuring a table, chairs and sun umbrella. Indulge in some al fresco dining any time of day with beautiful panoramic views across to Mounts Bay, The Lizard and Mousehole.

Really lovely cottage with excellent fitments. Stunning views over to the huge sea. Great car parking area opposite and we enjoyed the secluded garden.

Loved watching the sun go down on our own terrace! Had a great week enjoying Porthlevan and the area. Don't miss the cove (check tides) and the walk to the Lizard. The Minak theatre &St Michaels Mount Restaurant.

A beautiful cottage in a perfect location. We loved the constancy of the sea, sparkling blue sunshine sea and churning green grey storm sea, its sound was both soothing and enlivening.

Cottage wonderful (again as always). Weather mainly soggy but amazing seas can we try again next year?

Enchanting cottage, spotlessly clean, cosy, comfortable with everything one could possibly want...gins and tonics on the terrace were a must every evening.

Kelynack has been a wonderful find - couldn't have asked for anything else. Wonderful sunny weather all week, we spent many hours on the patio just relaxing and enjoying the view.

The cottage was very comfortable, situated on a quiet road very close to the sea. It was conveniently situated, being only about a 10 minute walk from the harbour with it's shops, restaurants and pubs.

Lampshade in bedroom needs to be raised - dangerous to tall people, I took it off. Sea thrift between flagstones on terrace needs removing - easy to trip over. Sunshade on terrace too small - won't cover 2 people in the shade at once - a second shade? kitchen/bathroom chemicals not out of reach of small kids - basic health and safety. All these facRead moretors stopped perfect 5's. Hide
