Mariners II is a firm favourite with those who have either stayed before or for those who have walked past it on their way to Loe Bar and the South West Coastal Path.

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.
I absolutely love this beautiful cottage, it suits me perfectly! So beautifully and tastefully decorated with such gorgeous furnishings, and so well equipped. Obviously the location is perfect, as well. So please thank the owner. It’s my definitive choice now after trying out at least half a dozen cottages on Loe Bar Road, I can’t wait to go back.Ms Judith Massa - 1st December 2019

Mariners II is in the perfect position, could just look at the view all day.Mrs Deborah Higgs - 25th June 2018
We have been coming to Porthleven on and off for the last 30 years and Mariners II was by far the best property we have stayed in.Mr Paul Rissen - 23rd April 2018
We enjoyed our holiday at Mariners II so much so we have booked another one in September. The property was outstanding in every way. We have stayed in Porthleven many times now in Above Beach Cottages properties. We have holidayed in St Ives for at least 30 years and always visited Porthleven but had not stayed there until about 5 years ago. We now stay in Porthleven rather than any where else because the beach, shops and restaurants are more friendly.Mrs S Harding - 7th April 2018
Very welcoming and beautifully clean.Mrs Kate Rule - 30th March 2018
Incredibly beautiful, clean and beautifully decorated cottage with a view to die for. Amazing location! Andrea Heseltine - 1st March 2018
