The Artist Loft

Bed and breakfast in the historic fishing village of Porthleven

The Artist Loft Bed & Breakfast is situated in the heart of the the south west coast of Cornwall offering luxury en-suite accommodation. In an elevated position on the first floor at 10 Fore Street, just steps from the picturesque harbour with its many cafe’s, restaurants, art galleries and shops and a short walk to Porthleven beach.

It makes the perfect base from which to explore this beautiful area of Cornwall which includes the Lizard Peninsula, Penzance, St Ives, Falmouth and Truro. The south west coastal path runs through the village and is easily accessible on both sides of the harbour.

The B&B operates independently giving guests the freedom to come and go as they like with key code access to the premises and the rooms. Instead of having a traditional breakfast room, guests are encouraged to have breakfast at one of the many excellent cafes in the village. The price of the room includes a voucher which can be redeemed for a breakfast at a number of establishments. This allows guests to have breakfast at a time that suits them. The facility is operated by their sister company Porthleven Holiday Cottages who have an office in the village and are always on hand to help.
