Things To Do.

Here in Porthleven there are a great variety of things to do in the local area whether your are on a family holiday or a quiet get away.

Family Days Out In Porthleven:

If you don't want to leave the village, Porthleven has  plenty to offer you during your stay, with a wide range of cafes, restaurants, fish and chip shops and traditional pubs, all serving beautifully cooked local food.

Our beach is perfect for family days out or romantic evening walks and, depending on the tides, you may see local fishermen landing their catches or mending their nets and making crab-pots in a traditional way on the quayside.

Lifeboat Day and the Porthleven Food Festival are annual events, local angling trips, coastal cruises are widely available if you're feeling adventurous.

And Loe Pool - a freshwater lake separated from the sea by a sand bar - is one of the most remarkable places in Cornwall. A birdwatcher's paradise, the Loe is at the heart of the Penrose Estate, an area of great natural beauty and a wonderful place to walk.

Helston - home to the famous Flora Day each May - can also be reached on foot, through the beautiful Penrose Estate.
