Set on the west coast of the spectacular Lizard Peninsula, the little harbour town of Porthleven is the quintessential Cornish fishing port. Centred around the harbour, it boasts an array of cafés, restaurants and galleries and exudes a chilled, relaxed atmosphere. Porthleven is the most southerly working port in the UK, with fishing boats operating out of the harbour. This makes the town a great spot to enjoy some delicious seafood, straight from the fishing boats to the restaurants, it couldn’t be fresher!
Porthleven beach can be accessed from the town itself and provides a long expanse of sand which is separated into segments by several rocky outcrops. While away the glorious summer days relaxing on the beach with a locally made ice cream in hand!
Situated part way along a huge sweeping bay, it faces the Atlantic Ocean and is often on the receiving end of some mighty winter storms! A fabulous destination for a winter break; marvel at the awe-inspiring waves pounding the harbour walls from the cosy safety of the local pub!
The surrounding area doesn’t disappoint either; located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the views from every cove or clifftop are picture-perfect. Travel north-west and you’ll reach Marazion, home of St Michael’s Mount – an absolute ‘must’. South takes you to the tip of the Lizard Peninsula, Lizard Point, one of Cornwall’s most iconic spots.
You won’t tire of the walks and stunning scenery, but if you fancy a day out, try the Seal Sanctuary, Flambards or Trebah Gardens. Or, go a little further afield and you can explore Penzance, Land’s End and St Ives.
Very homely with everything provided even hot water bottles. A beautiful family home would definitely returnMiss Elizabeth Tipper - 8th March 2020

This is our 4th stay (I think!) in this property and we love it. Warm, cosy and homely. Excellent location and we are very grateful they take our dogs. Porthleven is our go to place for UK holidays now and we very much hope to come back next year . We recommend it to everyone! Porthleven has become our favourite UK holiday destination. With the dogs it can be hard to find suitable holidays, but Porthleven has it all, dog friendly beaches, pubs, restaurants and fantastic walking . No need to get in your car again all week! Above Beach Cottages have always been extremely helpful when we have tried to find accommodation and we cannot fault them . Just saving up to book next year now! Mrs M Booth - 18th September 2018
