Porthleven Town Trail

I went down to the harbour this afternoon to visit the market just as our Lady Mayor was unveiling the Porthleven Town Trail board on the harbour head. The board shows the shops where they can be located around the harbour.

Porthleven Harbour Market

The Spring Bank Holiday Monday was hot and sunny and I wanted to buy some birthday presents for friends and relatives. I didn’t have to look further than the #Porthleven market, situated on the harbourside. The stalls are varied with jewellery to suit every budget, clothing, souvenirs, turned wooden articles and other gifts. It can be a really good place for something a little bit different that perhaps one wouldn’t find in a shop. I came away with a beautiful hand painted glass necklace with matching earrings and a lacy throw-over top, ideal for keeping the sun off your shoulders.

May and June are great times to visit Cornwall, when the cliffs and woods are carpeted in wild flowers. Come and spend a week with us at The #Gables Self Catering #Holiday apartment. The Gables is #dog-friendly and there are wonderful walks around the area. Visit our Facebook page –
