    “The homestay was neat and cozy.”

    The Hall and bedrooms are good and they had given indoor game set to play.

    The Hall and bedrooms are good and they had given indoor game set to play. There was not enough towels kept and the vessels were not cleaned properly. It would be better if the basic kitchen ingredients like Salt, sugar provided. The water from the shower drainage was not proper and the water was stagnant for quite long time. When the accomodation cost is higher, at least these amenties are expected to a standard level.

The property

Situated within a delightful Cornish village, just a short distance away from the glorious coastline is this mid-terrace property, 43 Penhallow Close.

This real home from home offers a superb base for a family of four seeking to explore this corner of North Cornwall with a refreshing home to come back to each evening.

The interior enjoys a bright and airy design, carefully selected furnishings and delightful coastal images to quietly reflect your surroundings.

Kick off your sandy shoes at the foot of the door to be welcomed into a spacious sitting/dining room, where you can look forward to gathering all of the family together to enjoy a relaxing evening in.

Curl up on the sofas and tune into the TV before settling down at the dining table to enjoy a home-cooked meal that was prepared within the kitchen.

The kitchen boasts a sleek and elegant design with the white kitchen units housing everything you could possibly need to cater for yourself during a week-long break.

As the evening draws to a close, retire to one of the bedrooms, each boasting a tranquil atmosphere to wake up to each morning.

Choose between a well-presented double bedroom and a bunk bedroom which is well-equipped for any younger guests and offers access to the conservatory, where you can enjoy your morning coffee during a summer’s day.

Spend a moment or two within the garden area, where your canine companions are welcomed to roam whilst you soak up the sun from the bench seating.

If you can tear yourself away from this base, venture to Mount Hawke where you will be delighted to find a superb gastro pub serving food, as well as a shop for picking up the essentials.

To keep you busy whilst staying here, head to the glorious Porthtowan Beach or walk the coastal football to enjoy the dramatic scenery that this part of Cornwall has to offer.

Alternatively, head to the town of St Agnes where you can enjoy the views of the coastline from a different angle by hiring a kayak from the village centre and explore the caves that were formed years go by the miners of this village.

43 Penhallow Close is a superb base for exploring this picturesque part of Cornwall.

About the location


Porthtowan 2 miles ; St Agnes 2.5 miles ; Truro 7.5 miles

Mount Hawke is a small village just outside St Agnes and Porthtowan on the north Cornish coast. Once heavily involved in the local copper mining industry, today Mount Hawke is quiet and mainly residential. There is a church which is dedicated to St John the Baptist, and a very good gastro pub – The Old School Bar & Kitchen – which is, as the name suggests, in a restored, traditional school building. There is also a Post Office, a couple of shops, a primary school, village park and Cornwall’s largest indoor skate park. Porthtowan beach is a pleasant walk from the village, through woodland and a pretty valley, and St Agnes Beacon and the coastal footpath are also within easy reach. Kayak hire and tours are available at St Agnes, as are surf lessons. There are also riding stables at nearby Goonbell, which offer countryside hacks and treks as well as pub hacks, summer picnic rides and children’s Pony Days.
