Bay View Porthallow Nr The Lizard Cornwall England
Cornwall, West Country, England
Additional Location Information
Bay View, is our holiday home located in the coastal village of Porthallow, Cornwall. Nestled in a wooded valley overlooking the village with stunning views of Falmouth Bay and the Roseland peninsular beyond, Bay View is a 2 bedroomed holiday apartment ideally situated for exploring the less crowded areas of Cornwall and particularly the Lizard.
Porthallow, or 'Pralla' as it's known locally, was once a thriving fishing village situated south of the Helford River, particularly renowned for it's abundance of pilchards. Although there remains no visual evidence today, it retains that character and echoes a bygone age, with an uncanny air of days long gone.
It is also quite appropriately the half way point on the south west coastal path, as there are many local walks with truly spectacular views across Falmouth Bay toward St. Anthony's lighthouse, Gull Rock and Dodman Point in the distance... on a clear day you can see miles of the beautiful south Cornish coast!
The beach and the 'local', The Five Pilchards pub is less than a 5 minute walk. Village store, post office, Three Tuns and White Hart pubs in St. Keverne a 5 minute drive. Sainsbury's and Tesco hypermarkets in Helston, along with most high street banks, 20 minute drive.
For golfing enthusiasts: Mullion Golf Club: the most southerly in England, 18 hole links course, 6022 yards (par 69) sea views across Mounts Bay - approximately 20 minute drive. Budock Vean: 9 hole course set in parkland on the banks of the tranquil Helford River - approximately 30 minute drive. Falmouth: 18 hole course, 5860 yards (par 70), half downland, half woodland with views across Falmouth Bay - approximately 40 minute drive.
St. Keverne is 2 miles, The Lizard 10, Helston 12 miles, Falmouth 20 miles, Lands End 35 miles, Truro 30 miles, Eden Project 40 miles.
For fishing, rambling, diving, boating or just plain beaching, you're spoilt for choice!
