Sleeps 2
No dogs
1 bedroom
1 bathroom
Chy An Mor has an idyllic location, situated above the beach in Porthleven with incredible views from the Lizard across Mounts Bay. This is a perfect destination for honeymooners or couples seeking a romantic holiday, soaking up the sea air while gazing out over the azure seas and golden sands, with ships passing on the horizon and yachts and fishing boats pottering closer to the shore. Originally a net loft and built in 1887, Chy An Mor is reverse level and has fabulous views from both the bedroom and also from the living area on the first floor with sliding patio doors, a glass fronted balcony and a private terrace. You can often see dolphins in the bay, along with surfers riding waves next to the harbour entrance. An episode of Wycliffe, "The Four Jacks," was filmed in Chy An Mor in 1994, starring Bill Nighy.

Porthleven is in one of the most popular areas of Cornwall, quaint fishing villages, beautiful beaches, magnificent headlands and secluded coves. There are a variety of pubs, restaurants cafes and shops. The beach extends at low tide for 3 miles towards Loe Bar and the Penrose Estate. From Porthleven it is a short drive to Helston and on, to savour the delights of Kynance Cove, the Helford River and the Lizard itself. Travelling west takes you into Mounts Bay where Marazion, St Michael's Mount, Penzance and Mousehole are all well worth the trip.
