How do you fancy staying in a house which has masses of history? Ealing House in the centre of Porthleven has been a general store, sweet shop and tobacconist, before becoming home to the poet and translator Percy Edward Pinkerton in the early 20th century. It now provides comfortable holiday accommodation for five people and two dogs. A useful porch/conservatory leads into the open-plan lounge/diner which has a lovely exposed stone wall. The kitchen is at the back of the house and along with the utility room, provides everything you’ll need to rustle up a delicious holiday meal. There is a hand shower room on the ground floor, whilst upstairs there is a family bathroom and three bedrooms – one of which has doors opening out onto a balcony with outside furniture. Just a minutes’ walk will take you to the harbour front and the many shops, galleries, pubs and restaurants. The historic site of St Michael’s Mount is only 15 minutes away in the car, with the golden sandy beaches of Praa Sands and Perranuthnoe only five miles from the harbour.

Lovely House and a lovely holiday in Porthleven as always.The Above Beach cottages team where fantastic as usual. We will be booking our next trip with you very soon.Miss Carol Shales-Richards - 17th November 2018
Myself, my partner & our 15 year old son, thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cottage was like home from home. Couldn’t have asked for anything nicer. The gifts of scones, jam, cream, milk etc, were much appreciated. The binder with the history of the house was a great read and so interesting. The 2 double beds were amazingly comfortable. I would have no hesitation in recommending Ealing House to family & friends.Ms M Johnstone - 3rd September 2018
