Discover Porthleven: A Year-Round Destination

Cornwall is a fantastic destination to visit all year round and Porthleven is no exception! Discover the beauty of the county in any season. Whether it’s a winter getaway, storm watching and exploring the county with fewer people around, or an early spring break to enjoy the sunshine while exploring gardens or hiking the South West Coast Path, there is always something to do. Summer is perfect for making family memories. Enjoy warmer seas, long days on the beach, water sports and alfresco dining. And, Autumn stays a little longer in Cornwall bringing with it warm days and tranquil beaches perfect for long dog walks.
