We often stay in Porthleven but this was the first time we had stayed at this property and it a truly amazing house in a fantastic position with the best views over the harbour and out to sea. The house has everything you could ever need and was spotlessly clean. Amazing views from the front windows and garden. I would definitely recommend number 12 Bayview.

Mrs Suzanne N,

A lovely house. Would happily stay again.

Mr Gary D,

All in all a lovely holiday home.

Mr Terry J,

This is a lovely property in a fabulous location. Porthleven is a beautiful little town with a great variety of places to eat out and many attractions close by. We would thoroughly recommend Above Beach Cottages to help you find your little piece of Cornish paradise.

Madeleine M,

The house was absolutely lovely. Just like to say that I love Porthleven and the area. Booking with your agency is always very professional and everybody is always very helpful. We had a lovely holiday.

The house exceeded our expectations. We have done lots of walking. I would particularly recommend that any visitor does a walk from Praa Sands back to Porthleven.

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.
