Spend a Sunday in Porthleven

7th Oct 2016

If you haven’t visited Porthleven yet, you are seriously missing out. There’s lots going on in this charming Cornish town, including a fishing port, beaches, shops, cafes and lots of foodie destinations. If you’re looking for something to do on an autumnal Sunday afternoon, you’ll have plenty to do here.

11am: There are lots of boutique shops in Porthleven, selling everything from beautiful jewellery to homeware pieces and small gifts. Peruse the shops and the array of galleries before picking up a bite to eat for late breakfast from one of the cafés or delicatessens. Make sure you grab a flat white or filter coffee from Origin as well, who are situated on the harbour head.

1pm: No Sunday is complete without a traditional roast. Pop into Rick Stein, Porthleven for topside of beef with seasonal vegetables, roast potatoes, beef gravy and a Yorkshire pudding. Or if you fancy a change, try one of our favourite fish dishes. You can warm up with a blanket and a  glass of wine whilst admiring the views across the harbour.

3pm: Walk off your lunch on Porthleven beach. It’s a 3 mile sandy beach and at low tide you can walk along it towards Loe Bar. With views towards Lizard Point to the south and Penzance and St Michael’s Mount to the west, this beach is a true gem.

4pm: Having blown out the cobwebs, reside in Twisted Currant for an afternoon cup of tea or a hot chocolate.  It’s a traditional tea room with a quirky, chic feel and has plenty of homemade cakes if you’re still feeling peckish.
