The patio of Ocean View stretches the whole width of the property and enjoys panoramic sea views. With plenty of space for sun loungers, a table, chairs and parasol, it really is hard to tear yourself away and go inside!
Once inside, this superb holiday home has two bedrooms on the ground floor, one king and one double, with en-suite shower rooms. On the lower ground floor there is a well-equipped kitchen, a spacious lounge/diner and a single bedroom with an en-suite shower room which doubles up as a cloakroom. From the patio, there are steps which go down to a small, fenced grassy area and here is off-road parking for one car.
Ocean View is a short walk to the centre of the village, its harbour and beach. Said to be one of the most impressive harbours in the Duchy, Porthleven is a hive of activity throughout the day. Nearby attractions include Flambards theme park, Land’s End and the Cornish Seal Sanctuary.

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.

Lovely week in Porthleven again. This is our third stay in Ocean View and we liked the decor updates and open kitchen. Get up early if you want the best of the fresh fish at the fishmongers!

Fantastic location and accommodation. Porthleven is a perfect place for a relaxing week away and to tour the South West area. We don't want to leave! The views from Ocean View have been a highlight and we will miss our morning and evening listening to abd watching the breaking waves. (P.S. loved The Ship Inn!)Richard + Christine - 15th June 2019
I would also like to say we will definitely use Above Beach Cottages again and will recommend to family and friends. This is our third visit to Porthleven within the last two years, we love the village and the fantastic walks on the doorstep. Oceanview is a lovely property with outstanding views and I’m sure we will be back. The bedroom with the balcony is stunning. Mrs James - 17th May 2019

The property has a wonderful location and we really enjoyed our week it is very comfortable and relaxing. Mrs Graham - 16th March 2019
We have had a fantastic week in this lovely cottage. Pounding waves to wake up to everyday - just to sit and watch the sea is so relaxing! The cottage is very comfortable and we will be very sorry to leave. We will happily return. Thank you.Mrs Graham - 23rd February 2019
I'm loathed to tell people how beautiful the view from Ocean View is at all times of year, in case we can't book it when we want to. I love December when the waves are crashing and we're safe and warm in a cosy house. And the sunsets are spectacular.Mrs Holloway - 5th January 2019
