Porth Enys is full of charm and character with a flowery history set within its 20 acres of land. The sub-tropical climate of South West Cornwall has always bless this area of the UK with the first blooms of spring, with Mousehole one of the largest producers of fresh flowers to London's markets. Fresh flowers were carefully transported by train from Penzance to London each morning in time for the London markets' early starts. Evidence of Porth Enys' floral past can still be see wandering around the beautiful gardens and acres.

Virtually every room provides its occupants with a breathtaking view of the coastline. The interior of the property is incredibly quirky and beautifully finished, boasting a Home Cinema room with an enormous pull-down screen and projector for those ultimate film nights in.

Mousehole, the very popular and beautiful Cornish fishing village is just a walk down the hill where you can walk around the harbour and explore its heritage or dine at some of the great restaurants and pubs. Where ever you go, you can look out to sea and look across to the iconic St Michaels Mount.

There are boundless things to see and do around this fantastic corner of Cornwall.
