Luxury Cornish Beach House. This utterly fabulous new house has it all – sensational, panoramic sea views, private access to the virtually deserted beach below and an imaginatively designed, contemporary and stylish interior, full of height, space and light.
Holidaymakers will love south-facing Beckerleg Beach House, completed October 2012, designed by the owners and architect to capitalise on the cliff top location with sweeping views across Mounts Bay from all three floors of the house.
Step out of the sitting room onto the full length balcony, or walk out from the kitchen/dining room or adjacent bedroom onto an enormous decked patio, perfect for al fresco dining and soaking up the sun. Listen to the waves gently lapping at the sea shore, or take a bottle of wine down to the beach and relax as you watch the sun slowly sinking over the sea. In the winter there is a log burner in the sitting room to keep you feeling extra warm and cosy, as the spectacular winter waves come rolling in.

If you are visiting West Cornwall for the first time then Porthleven is the perfect location - between Land's End and the Lizard - to explore with its glorious beaches, rugged coast lines and coastal paths. Traditional pubs, award winning restaurants, lively cafes, great value crab shack and a trendy deli all make Porthleven a gastronomic and social delight.
From Porthleven you can visit some of Cornwall's best towns and attractions including St Ives, Land's End, St Michael's Mount, Falmouth and the Eden Project.
Porthleven in Cornwall exudes Cornish charm and tradition. Set in the middle of a huge sweeping bay, the beach at Porthleven is ideal for a relaxing family holiday. Porthleven has arguably the most impressive harbour in Cornwall, being constructed during Napoleonic times and with the aid of French prisoners of war. Small fishing boats land their daily catch in Porthleven, much of which is sold in Porthleven cafes and restaurants and the award winning fishmongers. In recent years Porthleven has developed as one of the region's foodie hot-spots with numerous acclaimed restaurants and cafes and an annual food festival in April.
Around Porthleven harbour there are historic buildings, many constructed at the same time as the harbour around 200 years ago. Many fishermen's cottages and net lofts are located around the harbour area and the beach. The temperate climate in Porthleven and this area of Cornwall is partly due to warm waters of the Gulf Stream. The relaxing atmosphere is enhanced by the white painted buildings, the light reflected from the sea, and the fresh air.
Due to the strict conservation measures Porthleven in Cornwall remains an unspoit, working harbour. Porthleven attracts visitors who want to get away from it all and be inspired by the surroundings and the way of life.
