Porthleven – Our Cornish Harbourside Village

A visit to the bustling harbourside village of Porthleven should be a date on everyone’s calender, whether it be a day out or an extended stay. Still a working harbour, it’s wonderful to see fishing boats landing their daily catch, much of which is sold locally. With an eclectic mix of bars, shops, galleries and businesses we recommend you take a trip to Porthleven to appreciate all it has to offer.
