Porthleven in West Cornwall exudes Cornish charm and tradition. Set in the middle of a huge sweeping bay, with a harbour, a family friendly beach and a growing food scene. 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 Quayside fishmongers.

At the next set of traffic lights turn right, which will bring you into Truro City. Keep on this road and follow the signs for Falmouth. You will go through Playing Place, Carnon Downs and then Perranworthal (the river flows alongside the road here). At the top of the next hill is a mini roundabout (signposted left to Falmouth) go straight across. At the next double roundabout turn right, towards Helston (A394). Follow the A394 through Helston (10 miles), pass Tesco on your left and staying on the A394 you will reach a mini roundabout. Continue on this road (although it does say Porthleven, this road has some sharp bends). You will pass Wards Vauxhall garage (not petrol) at the top of the hill on your right-hand side. Take the next left (you will see the brown tourist "Historic Harbour" sign just before the turning), follow this road and you will pass the Cricket pitch and the amenity area on you right. About 300 yards past Hosking Building Supplies the road has a 45o turn to the left, at this junction you will see two roads. You can now follow the map to your cottage.
