Porthleven is a thriving seaside Cornish fishing village with its large harbour providing a focal point. Around this cluster many pubs, restaurants and businesses. The village provides amenities to cater for everyday needs as well as a primary school, whilst the more comprehensive amenities of Helston are a few miles distant and these include national stores, cinema and sports centre with indoor swimming pool. Situated between Helston and Porthleven is the beautiful Penrose Estate which is managed by The National Trust and where one may delight in the many walks and trails through the Cornish countryside around Loe Pool which is Cornwall's largest natural fresh water lake. Porthleven has a prize winning Brass Band which, on many a summer’s Sunday evening, can be heard echoing around the village, creating atmosphere and ambience for both residents and visitors.
