Located just above the beach and within easy walking distance of the many restaurants, cafe's and art galleries that Porthleven has to offer, Stormgazer is a tastefully furnished three bedroom cottage perfect for a family holiday.
On entering the property you will find two double bedrooms downstairs both with traditional beamed ceilings, calm neutral decor and sumptuous soft furnishings. There is also a WC on this level.
Upstairs you will find the master bedroom with King Sized bed, family bathroom with shower over bath and a very comfortable living room where you can sit & relax whilst enjoying the stunning sea views. To the rear of the first floor you will find the spacious & airy well equipped kitchen/diner which leads out to the garden space behind where patio furniture and built in BBQ are at your disposal.
Perhaps the most appealing feature of this charming cottage is the completely separate and private sun room perched right above the beach. Decorated in a fun seaside style with comfortable inside & out seating this is the ultimate space to relax and watch the sun set from the spacious balcony or close the French doors and be as close as you could possibly get to the sometimes stormy sea.
Stormgazer also benefits from having it's own private parking space just opposite, a rare find in this older part of the village.

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.
Amazing area, whether rain or sunshine. Helpful staff and great accommodation.Mrs Rhian Brant - 15th November 2018
Perfect cottage, loved it. Warm, cost and comfortable. When travelling with the dog our options are restricted with regards to rentals that allow pets. Nice to see a quality cottage open to us, they even left a dog bed. The sun room over the road was a big bonus and the location was excellent. Parking was also a plus point. The Cottage was exactly as per website description, booking process was simple and we were sent timely and appropriate information from Above Beach Cottages up to the date of our stay. Additionally lots of information and contact numbers were provided in the cottage in case of any issues whilst we were there.Mrs Jill Withey - 18th October 2018
Stormgazer is an excellent base for discovering Cornwall. The location has great variety: views, immediacy of the beach and coastal path, quiet location and just a short stroll into Porthleven village where there is plenty of cuisines should you choose not to venture any further - there’s no need. Stormagazer was very comfortable, light and airy. The net room (over the seafront) and garden were fabulous places to sit and let time pass by. Great holiday cottage.Mr Michael Carter - 10th September 2018
The sun room is fantastic, a very good property for a dog.Mr Martin Walker - 31st July 2018

Quirky, some people had to remember to duck their heads!!! Beds very comfortable, liked the room across the road. Well equipped property, well presented with excellent sea views from the beach room. Heather Tripp - 9th April 2018
