You’ll be looking out for most of your stay. It’s hard to draw your eyes away from the fascinating sea views which this house has been designed around. Pour a glass and daydream. Indulge in nature’s glory.
The oh-so-comfy sitting room is inviting, warmed by the stove when you need it and with sink-into sofas that just welcome you to relax. Upstairs you’ll find an enormous open plan living, kitchen and dining area. A huge panel of glass pulls you to gaze at the sea. Settle in with a glass of something chilled in hand. You can’t fail to relax here. ‘Mindfulness’ cannot be avoided as you let the gentle pace of life wash over you.
There’s a choice of doors to lead you out to the upper terrace with its swish glass panels, and steps down to the equally fabulous lower terrace, just above Porthleven’s famous beach. Sit out and listen to the ‘song of the sea’, inhale the freshest sea air, watch the activity in the harbour below and simply be. Perhaps you’ll spot a pod of whales. Take advantage of the telescope before someone else does.
A state-of-the-art kitchen is to be expected in this high tech house and it certainly delivers. Very smart fittings are complemented by excellent appliances. A dream kitchen to make self-catering truly enjoyable.
While you’re admiring nature, it’s good to know that this house is working to preserve it. A ground source heat pump powers the cosy underfloor heating. Hot water is reliably provided with the help of solar panels. Inside the air is filtered, clean and freshly provided through a heat recovery ventilation system. All grey water is recycled rain water. It’s modern eco living at its most luxurious.
Porthleven is a jewel in West Cornwall’s stunning coastline. Fishermen land their catches daily at the busy harbour. Source the freshest fish you can buy from the Quayside fishmongers. This is the perfect spot to explore the wonders of the Lizard Peninsula and Land’s End. Next landfall out to the West is Boston!
Bedrooms and bathrooms
King size beds in every room, beautiful linens and space to spread out give every room that luxury edge. Two bedrooms have their own en suite. Sink into the bath after a day on the beach.

Beautiful property. Felt like a real treat. We definitely want to return at some point.Sara Brooke - 7th August 2019
Superb property for it's stunning location right over the beautiful Porthleven beach and so close to all the restaurants and cafes around the pretty harbour. Very modern and high quality well designed and excellently furnished property, one of the best we have stayed in (and we've stayed in loads all over Cornwall). Service from Above the Beach staff was responsive and excellent.Ms Carol Watkiss - 27th June 2019
We booked Song of the Sea as a special treat to celebrate our daughter's 21st and our 25th wedding anniversary. We literally couldn't have asked for a more memorable stay. The property, its location, and of course 6 days of wall to wall sunshine and in March, was what dreams are made of! A stunning property, in a place we love, with our nearest and dearest..... what more could you ask for? Want to book to come back already.Mrs Louise Keen - 4th April 2019
It was absolutely fantastic. We loved it. Thank youMr Charles Ciumei - 8th September 2018
Song of The Sea is such a spectacular property that it really does take your breath away! We felt like the 'real world' was a million miles away and we could easily have spent every day doing nothing other than sitting taking in the views, watching the activity in and out of the harbour and letting the sound of the waves soothe us. The attention to detail by Above Beach Cottages was excellent and ensured we could enjoy the holiday to the full. Thank yo so much!Mrs Jill Vavasour - 2nd September 2018
The best holiday house we have ever stayed in. Brilliant in every aspect.Mr Steve Hudson - 18th June 2018

Cornwall has many hidden gems but Song of the Sea is one of it's brightest, ultimate luxury accommodation and a view that really does take your breath away.Aaron Hargreaves
OMG we had the best time ever. What a truly fantastic house. Views to die for, great facilities (loved the telescope) and so close to such a beautiful town. Even saw a pod of whales one morning- amazing. We visit Cornwall every year and think we have found the ultimate house- see you next year!The Kelleys, Royleigh
A-M-A-Z-I-N-G We are so glad that we have had the opportunity to stay at this beautiful house. Superbly designed and a view that is breathtaking. We stayed during the July heatwave and sitting on the terrace with a glass of wine we really could have been anywhere in the world.The Davies, Worksop
