This jaw-dropping property in Porthleven promises a truly unique getaway. If it’s a family coastal self-catering escape you crave then you can’t get much closer to the elements than Ocean View. With panoramic sea views, this is the perfect sand-between-toes retreat. The aptly named cottage really does have breathtaking views that have to be seen to be believed and you can listen to the gulls overhead and boats lazily sailing past in summer months and in winter you can enjoy the dramatic waves crashing from the warmth of this cosy coastal cottage.
Porthleven exudes Cornish charm and tradition. Set in the middle of a huge sweeping bay, the beach at Porthleven is ideal for a relaxing family holiday and 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. Enjoy day trips to Lands End, Flambards and the Cornish Seal Sanctuary and return home to your very own slice of Cornish heaven.

Stayed here many times before but love the new decor and kitchen/ lounge layout.Mr J Cox - 26th July 2019
Ocean View is in a great location with panoramic views out to sea. We loved watching the waves. There are good walks straight from the house and a short walk brings you into the pretty harbour of Porthleven.Mrs Ruth Sullivan - 28th June 2019
Best self catering property we have ever stayed in.Mr Richard Watson - 25th June 2019
I would also like to say we will definitely use Above Beach Cottages again and will recommend to family and friends. This is our third visit to Porthleven within the last two years, we love the village and the fantastic walks on the doorstep. Oceanview is a lovely property with outstanding views and I’m sure we will be back. The bedroom with the balcony is stunning. Mrs Linda James - 17th May 2019
A fantastic place that we plan to keep returning to.Mr Ben Woodside - 26th April 2019
The property has a wonderful location and we really enjoyed our week it is very comfortable and relaxing. Mrs Christine Graham - 16th March 2019
I'm loathed to tell people how beautiful the view from Ocean View is at all times of year, in case we can't book it when we want to. I love December when the waves are crashing and we're safe and warm in a cosy house. And the sunsets are spectacular.Mrs Amanda Holloway - 5th January 2019
