About Portloe

ENJOY A VISIT TO THIS PICTURESQUE VILLAGE ON THE SOUTH COAST OF CORNWALL

Portloe is a picturesque Cornish Fishing village, although today it only has a couple of working trawlers left who fish locally for crab and lobster that is best eaten in The Lugger or The Ship Inn in the village.

Portloe is at the top of the Roseland Peninsula and is located on the South West Coast Path.

Portloe has been used in films on several occasions and just south of the village is the National Trust owned Broom Parc, which was used by Channel 4 for The Camomile Lawn serialisation.

Portloe is within the Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) which along with National Parks, are considered to be the most special landscapes in the country and belong to an international family of protected areas. It is a designation aimed at conserving and enhancing the natural beauty of the area.

The biggest local attraction is the Lost Gardens of Heligan but also nearby is the Eden Project and less than a forty minute drive away is Newquay and its surf beaches, the cathedral city of Truro and the maritime harbour town of Falmouth.
