This charming two-bedroom cottage is a short stroll from both the beach and the harbour side and has been beautifully renovated whilst retaining many original features. Exposed stone walls, original flooring and an multi-fuel stove blend in nicely with a modern kitchen and newly installed bathroom. The master bedroom has two large windows providing masses of light and amazing sea views. The cottage also benefits from a separate cloakroom on the first floor.
For the 2020 season Suffolk Cottage will also have a gorgeous new loft room with dormer and velux windows to relax in, while taking in the sweeping views of the bay.
Suffolk Cottage welcomes two dogs and the outside enclosed courtyard is a great space for your four-legged friend with plenty of room for alfresco dining. The property has a good-sized private parking space for one car.

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.
Mrs Fryer - 20th April 2021
Very well equipped and comfortable. Mrs Carol Edwards - 30th October 2019
We enjoyed our first trip to Porthleven and the walks, perhaps a little less in the way of shops. We normally go to Fowey which has been a favourite for many years.Mr Andy Davies - 18th October 2019
An easy to book holiday - no hassles! Clear instructions for the property sent upon completion of payment. Arrival at the property was incredible welcoming and it was an amazing week in Porthleven. The house was clean, comfortable and had all the amenities required. Despite allowing pets (we took a dog), it was refreshing that the property was incredibly clean and spotless. The enclosed courtyard allowed a safe exit from the property with the dog and children and it was handy to have somewhere to put wet clothes after the beach. All essentials were catered for from the gorgeous welcome pack to the soaps, toilet paper and milk etc. that make your first day/evening easier if arriving late. A wonderful week - we really didn't want to come home. Thank you for a memorable summer holiday.Mrs Joanne Barlow - 30th August 2019
An excellent, clean well provided cottage. Excellent location yards from beach. Off road parking was a bonus as was the enclosed courtyard for dogs. Cottage provided everything you could think of plus more, shower was brilliant. We enjoyed walks straight from cottage onto coast path and onto beach in minutes. had an excellent well catered for holiday and will definitely return. thanks to owners and Above Beach team.Mr David Ellis - 7th June 2019
Very well appointed and furnished cottage in a great location.Mr Andy Ferris - 30th March 2019
Thank you, we had a fab week and will be booking again.Mrs Lucy Russell - 6th March 2019
Suffolk Cottage is more like a home from home than a holiday cottage. Overall, it is probably better equipped than our home.Mr Terence Carlane - 7th December 2018
Suffolk Cottage is ideally located with lovely views from master bedroom but far enough back from the sea to avoid the storms! Porthleven really is a year round holiday location with good restaurants and friendly pubs. Dogs are made welcome almost everywhere and the cliff walk to Loe Bar then Helston through Penrose is a must. The cottage is comfortable and well equipped making it a perfect bolthole at any time of the year.Mrs Sandy Jones - 24th September 2018
Well equipped cottage with tasteful decor, excellent location. Porthleven is a beautiful place for relaxing or walking and home to fantastic restaurants, everywhere is dog friendly Mrs M Robinson - 18th September 2018
Immaculately presented with every appliance/ tool needed for a relaxing holiday.Mr Karl Booth - 16th July 2018
Suffolk Cottage is a lovely well equipped cottage and we would definitely book there again. We have spent the last few years holidaying in Porthleven as it is a beautiful location with so much to offer with it’s various restaurant’s, pubs, shops and galleries. Very dog friendly too! The last two cottages were booked through Above Beach Cottages, both properties were of an excellent standard. We will be back!Miss Rebecca Lazenby - 21st June 2018
Excellent location, lovely cottage. Extremely well equipped with absolutely everything you could possibly want or need.Mr Michael Holohan - 13th June 2018
Above Beach Cottages are easy to book with and we enjoyed our holiday at Suffolk Cottage. The cottage is in a good position, nicely furnished and clean. Porthleven is lovely and peaceful we really enjoy the village. Mrs Theresa Ford - 28th May 2018
Beautifully presented property with everything you could need for a family holiday. The cottage is in a great location for the beach and harbour at Porthleven and exploring the local area. It was amazing being able to hear the waves from the bedroom and look out over the sea.Miss Liz Ryan - 1st May 2018
