What a beautiful place to see in the new year! Another lovely stay at Castaway. As always, immaculately clean and everything thought of for your comfort, with the addition of some festive touches – great Christmas tree!

We have stayed in many properties in Cornwall over the years, but Castaway may be the best yet – so cosy and comfortable!

We spent a lovely week at Castaway over Christmas. Our kids are 5 & 8, so the games room was amazing for them. Lots of space and everything we needed plus more – finally a house with sharp knives so we could actually cut and cook! We have already booked for next year. Thank you for sharing your property – can we buy it??!

Mrs Hannah Waterhouse


04 Oct 2019

Castaway has been a delight, even with a few wet days. There is plenty here for us all to enjoy, with ages ranging from 6 to 76! We appreciate the thought that has gone into making this house a home. Like many previous guests, we all want to own it!

We have recently returned from a weeks stay at Castaway in Porthleven from 20/9/19 to 27/9/19 I would like to say what a wonderful property which by far exceeded our expectations. It was very clean and well stocked with everything we were likely to need and more. It was exactly as described in the Information about it on line. I would not hesitate to return or recommend it to family and friends. We really enjoyed our stay there. Many thanks

Great house in a great location.

Mr Stuart Anderson


29 Nov 2018

This is the 3rd time we’ve stayed at Castaway - found property spotlessly clean, everything you could need to make your stay as comfortable as possible, and as other guests have mentioned, a real home away from home. And with a fantastic view of the harbour - just perfect :-)

Mrs Louise Keen

Mrs Louise Keen

Castaway is wonderful, super views, enjoyed looking out from the living areas and bedrooms across the panoramic vista and enjoyed the sunsets in the evenings. Porthleven is very enjoyable to wander around and relax! We have thoroughly enjoyed your beautiful property and Porthleven and hope to return again soon.

Hancock Family, Devon


02 Nov 2014

Porthleven is a great place to stay - central to many areas, a charming yet relatively un-commercialised and unspoilt harbour and a much under-rated beach. The owners have provided a fantastic house to stay in. The views are amazing. Everything in the house is top quality - the fixtures, the fittings, the accessories, absolutely everything. Everything is where it should be, everything works. Loads of extras. Perfect place for us (3 generations) to stay in.

Bunn Family, Worcs


22 Aug 2014

Really good games room, had lots of fun with the table football and Wii. WiFi works well! Excellent shower and underfloor heating (very cosy). I have been coming to Porthleven ever since I was a baby and have stayed in loads of houses but this has been the best by miles!!! (Matthew, age 10) What a superb job you’ve done with this house – every room is a delight.

Haller Family, Gloucs. (Aug 2014, Returned 2015, 2016, 2017)

Been coming to Porthleven for fifty years and hope to be coming for many more - Castaway would always be our first choice.

Watt Family, Hants


01 Sep 2017

Castaway is a great house and we have loved it here. With sun loungers out on the decking, full sunshine and a cheeky drink – we could have been abroad! Porthleven is great, everything you need so close to the house.

Gillham and Warland Family, Oxford


30 Jun 2017

A really great holiday home – well equipped with comfy beds. Sometimes we didn’t even bother going out – just sat on the balcony watching the birds and village life unfolding below us; that’s what holidays are all about! What a lovely holiday home!

Wiseman, Perthshire, Scotland


04 Aug 2017

What a wonderful house. We have stayed at many cottages in Cornwall and this is the best yet. The children really appreciated the games room and it kept them happy on a couple of rainy days.

Maturi and Patrick Families, Worcester


11 Aug 2017

Fantastic accommodation, well equipped, clean and beds very comfy. The Wii was brilliant for the kids and we all enjoyed the board games. Coastal walks are amazing and Porthleven restaurants are all so good.

Redman Family, Manchester


15 Sep 2017

Castaway is absolutely fabulous, up to our usual high standard and more. We have stayed in other properties down here but this has blown us away!

Jenkins Family, Gwent


15 Aug 2014

What a wonderful place to call home for a week! Fantastic house, so comfortable and beautifully decorated - we felt right at home straight away! The games room was a big hit with our daughter, an avid gamer, who enjoyed having her own space away from us boring adults. Castaway's location is ideal, both for the lovely bustling harbour and also for days out. Also eating in Porthleven has been very enjoyable. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! We will definitely return!!
