Description

Stormgazer is a brilliantly modern cottage, that exudes cool, coastal style and boasts stunning sea views for all to enjoy. Located within easy walking distance of the varied restaurants, galleries and pubs that Porthleven offers, it is the perfect base to explore Cornwall. You will be excited to return to your own little piece of paradise after a long day to enjoy the cosy amenities in the cottage, such as underfloor heating throughout whilst watching the sea rage outside your window from the warmth of your living room or the sun room. The cottage benefits from its own parking space which is rare in this part of the harbour.

Porthleven is steeped in Cornish charm and tradition. Set in the middle of a huge sweeping bay, the beach at Porthleven is ideal for a relaxing family holiday. Porthleven has arguably the most impressive harbour in Cornwall, construction commenced during Napoleonic times and some sources state that it was built with the aid of French prisoners of war. Small fishing boats land their daily catch in Porthleven, much of which is sold in Porthleven cafes and restaurants and the award winning Quayside fishmongers. Don't forget to visit the Minack Theatre for a truly unique experience.

Reviews

Amazing area, whether rain or sunshine. Helpful staff and great accommodation.

Mrs Rhian B,

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 W,

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 C,

The sun room is fantastic, a very good property for a dog.

Mr Martin W,

We enjoyed our stay, and would use the accomadation again.

Mr R B,

Map

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.
