Lovely House and a lovely holiday in Porthleven as always.The Above Beach cottages team where fantastic as usual. We will be booking our next trip with you very soon.

Miss Carol S,

Myself, my partner & our 15 year old son, thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cottage was like home from home. Couldn’t have asked for anything nicer. The gifts of scones, jam, cream, milk etc, were much appreciated. The binder with the history of the house was a great read and so interesting. The 2 double beds were amazingly comfortable. I would have no hesitation in recommending Ealing House to family & friends.

Ms M J,

We had a difficult journey down and were delighted with the property and it’s presentation on arrival, such a relief! And we loved Porthleven, we are planning to return. Thank you.

Mrs Karen L,

This is our 2nd visit to Ealing House and everything is still looking good, well equipped, warm & comfy. Had a selection of weather but it was wonderful to be back in Porthleven. Well done EALING.

Previous Customer,


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.
