Portloe Roseland peninsula
Portloe lies on the Roseland Peninsula on the south coast of Cornwall.
The steep valley that runs down to the sea in which Portloe sits has ensured a lack of development and many buildings are as thy were built.
Portloe’s naturally sheltered position saw village grow in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries as a busy pilchard fishing port.
At one time there were there were more than fifty boats fishing here – now only a few boats work from the cove mainly for crab and lobster.
