Located at the top of a curving row of 140 year-old three-storey fishermen’s dwellings, Tops’ Cottage has been named after one of its previous residents, a village fisherman nicknamed Tops.
The present owner has lovingly restored the cottage, including building in two flights of modern stairs and two new floors, while retaining the original character. Tops’ Cottage now provides all the modern amenities you would expect including electric heating throughout and fibre-optic broadband.
Step inside from street level and you will find a cosy sitting room enhanced by a wood burner look-alike electric stove set in the old granite beamed fireplace. Snuggle down on the cosy sofa or head upstairs to the beautifully designed, romantic bedroom with its stylish en-suite wash-room with its large walk-in shower.
Downstairs, the well equipped kitchen provides everything needed for home cooking and dining. The kitchen opens onto a small sunny patio providing an outdoor space for relaxing or alfresco meals. A small cloakroom is attached to the kitchen.
Based at Tops’ Cottage, there are ample opportunities for an active holiday or one in which you can relax, soak up the refreshing local atmosphere and watch the world go by. A short stroll will bring you down to the village centre and the harbour where you will find restaurants, cafes, pubs, gift shops and the Shipyard Market. The South West Coast Path runs all around the harbour and provides easy access to local beaches and the nearby National Trust Penrose Estate.
Beautifully renovated cottage with everything we needed for a home away from home. The welcome gifts were a lovely touch. Thank you Roger!
Loved the warm welcome - thank you for the goodies. Beautiful decor and homely feel. Everything we needed. WE've had a wonderful week and look forward to a return visit.
5 star stay – everything thought of – hope to be back in sunnier climes !!
A lovely cottage. Beautifully designed and renovated. Would love to come back.
Tops Cottage was a really nice place to stay, the work to the internal updating was first class and the furnishings good and comfortable.
We've stayed in lots of cottages in Porthleven, mainly on sea-front. This is out first time in the 'village' and we loved it! Beautiful cottage, you can just see the sea from the bedroom window. Thank you for the chocolate, wine, milk etc
We've both had a lovely stay here. You have obviously put such care and attention into this place and it makes for a wonderful holiday base. Thanks!
Lovely cottages, well kitted out. We thoroughly enjoyed out week here. It is a great base for touring the area.
We had a very good stay in Top's Cottage, which has been beautifully converted, equipped and furnished.
Another great holiday in Porthleven and our second stay in Tops’ Cottage! The cottage has all the amenities you would need and is only a stone’s throw away from the harbour. The owner is really helpful and accommodating - we would definitely return again.
Had a great time - Tops' is an ideal base and is so comfortable and well equipped. We loved it!!
Our third stay at Tops' Cottage and as always loved our time here. Thank you for being such a great host. We enjoyed Loe Bar, Perranunthnoe, Helford and Porthallow.
We love Porthleven and are glad to have found Tops' Cottage. It has been a wonderful stay and we will definitely book again.
