About Newhaven

Newhaven sleeps six (plus two) guests and is a large holiday retreat ideally placed in the pretty Cornish fishing village of Porthleven which dates back to the 18th Century. Located near to Helston on the Lizard Peninsula, Porthleven is a popular coastal destination with its bustling harbour, excellent restaurants, lovely beach and pretty white cottages against a picturesque seascape.

Offering three bedrooms, including the master room which affords fantastic views over the harbour, Newhaven is a family friendly holiday home at any time of the year. During the summer months relax in the secluded garden at the front of the property and enjoy alfresco dining on the patio or a seafood BBQ (fresh from the harbour which is just a two minute stroll away!). During the winter months, relax in front of an open fire after an embracing walk along the beautiful sandy beach which stretches for some miles to Loe Bar, the largest natural lake in Cornwall.

Porthleven is an idyllic Cornish village which still today holds on to its unspoilt charm. It has all the right ingredients for an enjoyable seaside holiday with restaurants where you can sample the freshest of fish, traditional pubs for a local pint, gift and craft shops to browse and a supermarket for stocking up on provisions, along with an annual food and music festival in April. Spend your days sitting by the harbour watching the fishing boats come and go where you will see them off-loading the catch of the day. Take a picnic to the beach and relax on the sands or simply sit and admire the stunning sea views over Mounts Bay.

For those who like to keep active, even when on holiday, there are miles of coastal path to explore, spanning all the way from the Lizard to Lands End with so much to see along the way. Walk in the summer when the paths are alive with wild flowers or during the winter when your heart will be stirred by the dramatic coastal views.

With something to offer all ages, the attractive market town of Helston is just two miles and has a great selection of pubs, eating establishments, children's play areas, Folk Museum (free!) and the famous annual Flora Day with its carnival vibe, held at the beginning of May. Acting as the 'gateway to the Lizard Peninsula, Helford is a great starting point for exploring the beautiful countryside and pretty villages dotted throughout the Helford Valley.
