It will soon be Christmas and after that, it will be time to start thinking about your 2016 holiday, so how about coming to stay at our #self-catering apartment at The Gables, #Porthleven, Cornwall. The Gables is centrally located and close the harbour, shops, restaurants and other local amenities. We have private, off-road parking and the long stretch of #beach is only a ten minute walk. You are also welcome to bring your dog as The Gables welcomes well-behaved dogs.
Surfing and Paddle-Boarding
If you take a walk along the cliffs to the west, you will probably see our hardy, local surfers who surf off the reef throughout the year. You could even book a session at stand-up paddle boarding with our local instructor who is based on the harbourside.
Loe Bar and Penrose Estate
The scenery in and around Porthleven is stunning, so come and see for yourself. You could take a walk to the beautiful Loe Bar, where the sea is separated from Loe Pool, a large lake, by a wide sandbar. From there you can either continue up the coast or take the inland route through the wooded Penrose Estate, owned by the National Trust.
