Location - Set on the magnificent Lizard Peninsula, not far from the tranquil creeks of the Helford River, lies one of Cornwall's most historic coastal villages.
Known locally as 'Pralla', Porthallow was once a thriving fishing community and home to a busy fleet of pilchard luggers, hence the name of its traditional village pub, 'The Five Pilchards'.
Steeped in maritime heritage, this idyllic corner of the south Cornwall coast offers a wonderful local community within easy reach of the region's most beautiful beaches. A good range of day to day facilities are on offer in nearby St Keverne with more comprehensive facilities including a choice of national super markets on offer in Helston.
Porthallow is recognised as the half-way point along the world-famous South West Coast Path as it winds its way from Minehead to Poole. From the doorstep of this beautiful cottage you'll be perfectly placed to access breathtaking coastal walks with far-reaching views across the sparkling waters of Falmouth Bay and St Mawes. The Porthallow valley trail is bathed in bluebells during the spring and the headland is a canvas for wildflowers atop of the serpentine rock formations, resplendent in their red and green hues. The wildlife along this idyllic stretch is both varied and spellbinding, anything from soaring buzzards and diving cormorants to bobbing seals, leaping dolphins, and gentle but giant basking sharks.
Porthallow Beach is sheltered by the surrounding headland, a scenic stretch where the pilchard fisherman used to launch their boats. Porthallow Cove is full of rock pools at low tide and is also a great spot for snorkelling. The beach is now owned by the Porthallow Village Association with residents enjoying the right to moor, store and launch their boats.
