Portloe

(90 reviews from 1 attraction)
Historic Sites
Portloe is a small village in Cornwall, England, UK, situated on the Roseland Peninsula, within the civil parish of Veryan, 1.5mi east of the village of the same name. Portloe currently harbours two full-time working fishing vessels, the Jasmine and Katy Lil, both of which fish for crab and lobster in Veryan and Gerrans Bay, along with a fleet of smaller leisure boats in summer. The harbour is run by a committee, the chair of which is Charles Williams. Portloe is also well known for its fantastic fishing, scenery, walks, and local history. It has easy access to St Mawes and other coastal towns.Portloe lies within the Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). Almost a third of Cornwall has AONB designation, with the same status and protection as a National Park. The South West Coast Path passes through the village.HistoryThe Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) stationed a lifeboat at Portloe in 1870 but it was withdrawn in 1887 without ever having performed a rescue. It was kept at first in a boat house built at the end of the road above the beach. It proved difficult to move the boat across the beach so a new house was built in 1877 nearer the water. The first house was converted into a church; the second was a school for a while but has since become a private dwelling house.
