Porthleven is a vibrant harbour town with a working fishing port on the south coast, between the Lizard peninsula and Mounts Bay, surrounded by stunning coastline and countryside in an area of outstanding natural beauty on the south west coast path. Just outside the mouth of the harbour is the Porthleven surf reef break, renowned for being one of the finest in the UK and Europe on the right swell. Porthleven has retained much of its historical original charm and offers a diverse range of cafes, restaurants, pubs, shops and galleries along with a local supermarket, primary school, post office, doctor’s surgery, fishmongers, and delicatessen. The more extensive amenities that the nearby market town of Helston provides include primary schools and secondary schools, banking and sporting facilities, cinema and larger supermarkets.
Communications to and from Cornwall have greatly improved in recent times. Daily flights operate from Newquay Airport to London Heathrow, as well as regular flights to other main cities of the British Isles and Europe. A mainline rail link to London Paddington operates from Truro, and the A30 trunk road, running down the spine of Cornwall, has been expanded in recent times and now provides excellent links to M5 motorway at Exeter.Description
