WELCOME TO THE Old Lifeboat House

Situated on Cornwall’s South West coast the harbour village of Porthleven is one of the prettiest in the area. Just a short distance from Helston and the Lizard Peninsular, Porthleven has a wealth of restaurants, traditional pubs and cosy cafes alongside a good variety of shops.

The Old Lifeboat House is a unique historic building perched on the rocks on the outer edge of the harbour. Inside the original granite walls are whitewashed to reflect the light and electric heaters keep out winter chills. It is available for hire throughout the year and provides a perfect setting for exhibitions; workshops; events; parties or simply as a studio space. In addition to the 45 sq.m. open plan space, there is a mezzanine level with a small kitchen and toilet.
