Porthleven Harbour & Portfolio
For 35 years, Trevor Osborne has owned the Porthleven Harbour & Dock Company, a statutory company founded by an Act of Parliament in 1869.
The Harbour & Dock Company owns many of the historic buildings in and around the harbour which are subject to a continuing programme of improvements and conversions.
The village with its annual food and music festival, its RNLI Gala Day, the harbour market which operates through Spring, Summer and Autumn, and a host of other events has full occupancy of all of its many restaurants, historic inns, galleries and shops and is now one of the most attractive holiday locations in Cornwall. We have no vacant premises and many of the properties are available for holiday lettings through the Group’s associated Company Porthleven Holiday Cottages.
In 2014 the village was savaged by unprecedented storms which caused extensive damage to the harbour, the repair of which was largely completed in the same year. The harbour now accommodate both fishing and pleasure boats and moorings are available.
In 2010, the old Lifeboat House was successfully converted into an artist studio and hosts a variety of art courses as well as visiting artists through-out the year.
The conversion of the upper floors of Celtic House on the Harbour Head was completed in 2011 and now trades as a successful restaurant and bar.
The Old China Clay building was converted in 2013 and now operates as a seafood restaurant and bar with a one bedroom holiday apartment on the second floor.
Future projects include new shops and apartments, a 35 bedroom Harbourside Hotel, a contemporary luxury home and the restoration of a number of listed buildings on the harbourside.
