Above Beach Cottages in Porthleven

Hi,

I am looking to book a cottage from Above Beach Cottages - Anson Cottage looks lovely. Has anyone stayed here or know of it? There will be 6 adults, a dog and 2 cars.

Having never stayed in this part of Cornwall before, we don't really know what it will be like, but are looking forward to going!

Any feedback appreciated!

We had problems at Christmas in our cottage due to the appalling weather. The cottage we had booked was on the seafront and the high winds and rain caused damage to the balcony and roof. The Above Beach Cottages management team responded to our call straight away and moved us to another lovely cottage up the road. They really could not have been more helpful. Their team were very friendly and professional and did everything they could to make sure our relocation went smoothly. We have used this company for around 6 or 7 holidays and this is the first time we have had a problem. Highly recommended.

We are currently staying in Porthleven in a cottage booked through Above Beach Cottages. We are really pleased with the cottage and it is exactly as described. We would use this company again.

You do well to seek impartial reviews for your cottage. The thing about Above Beach Cottages, along with Porthleven Holidays with whom they seem to have amalgamated, is that unlike other agencies, they have no self-grading system, and sometimes the descriptions lack detail. They also have no access statements or good photos, or 360 degree views. This means you can’t be sure of what you are getting. We have stayed in three of their properties, plus one let by Porthleven Holidays. You are very dependent on the individual owners of the properties, who are sometimes so generous it can hardly be believed, whereas others don’t even provide toilet paper! All four properties we stayed in have been extremely clean, and I think that may be down to the cleaning agency they employ. The same agency appear to deal with out-of-hours emergencies, and they are superb: courteous, intelligent and absolutely on the ball. The Porthleven Holidays property (Mariners) and the Above Beach property called Quayside (St Elvins Court) are both properties we return to, but the other two properties were less pleasing.

We are regular visitors to Porthleven and always use Above Beach Cottages, staying in a cross section of the properties available. Without fail from start to finish, our experiences have been exemplary. Our recent stay at 6 St Elvans Courtyard was again outstanding. Great location for the village the apartment itself was spotless. We always find it a great a pleasure to deal with the staff at Above Beach and would recommend very highly any visitors to this wonderful part of the UK, to do likewise.

Welcome to the forum. I know some of these threads tend to ramble on but this one started nearly 5 years ago. Never mind we have all been caught like this! I look forward to reading your posts in future.

The information is still useful and relevant. Not sure why you felt that you had to "correct" the new poster. There was also a previous post in September.

I think Senior it's because these types of threads with the company name as a header seem to be regularly bumped by people who post one time only to sing the praises of them (or occasionally condem them).

It seems largely motivated to keep the name in the public eye.

We have a few like this that seem to be eternal. They may start with a genuie question.
