This was our second visit to The Manse and third booking with Above Beach Cottages. On all occasions, the description of the property was accurate, the properties have always been well equipped and customer service levels have always been very high. I would highly recommend Above Beach Cottages and their properties, based on our experiences with them. Keep up the good work!.Mrs Debra Willey - 5th November 2018
A lovely house. Well equipped. Very comfortable beds.Mrs Ruth Moakes - 3rd September 2018
The Manse was a lovely comfortable house in the wonderful harbour town of Porthleven. Everything was easily accessible by foot. It was great having a dog friendly beach within walking distance. The house was very clean. The fresh scones, jam and clotted cream were very welcome when we arrived. Mrs Jane Gillman - 20th August 2018
Our second stay at this lovely house, very homely and well equipped with stunning views from the upstairs bedrooms and reading room. The owner was exceedingly helpful and the lovely welcome tray of a cream tea and local cider was really appreciated. Can't wait to return again.Mrs Katherine Guy - 18th April 2018
Really comfortable and very well equipped - good setting in Porthleven - lovely to lie in bed and look out at the sea! Feels like a home from home - we all enjoyed our. Break. Mrs Alison Craddock - 9th April 2018
We spent a wonderful week in The Manse in Porthleven. Always sunny weather, great walks on the South West Coast path, excursions to Glendurgan gardens and the Levant mine near St. Just. Great relaxing on the beach.The Sholls, Germany
Enjoyed a wonderful week, and even managed some good weather! All members of the group enjoyed making sandcastles and body boarding on Porthleven and Praa Sands beaches. Can recommend Fish and Chips from Roland's Happy Plaice and the ice cream cream shop Nauti but Ice - next to bike hire shop.The Chaltons and Townsends
Had a good time in The Manse. First time in Porthleven. Lovely cosy cottage. Everything we needed. Sure we will return one day. Harbour and the pubs great - good food.Christine, Mike, Emma, Jake, Nathan, Georgia and Pepper
It was great - loved the Seal Sanctuary. Almost forgot the pizzas (from The Deli) - great, but order them in advance 'cos they take a long time.The Parrs
We have spent a very enjoyable, peaceful, relaxed and unhurried week here. The Manse was just the ticket again. Thanks very much.Mike and June from Warford
Another restful stay in The Manse and calm atmosphere of Porthleven. A good mixture of weather, mainly fine I am pleased to say! Atlantic Inn visited most, but Amelie's and The Square well worth a visit. Sorry to leave, but hope to be back next May.Bill, St. Albans
