    “The really only comment was lack of privacy although we realise this is difficult as you share the owners property otherwise there were no issues!”

The property

Portreath 1.3 miles.

Byghan Thornton is a lovely annexe property located in a quiet area of Cornwall's countryside, just a short distance from the golden sandy beaches of West Cornwall.

The property is ideal for couples looking to escape to this popular location with a well-equipped base to return to each evening.

A bright and airy open-plan living space with a kitchen, dining and sitting area, make this property the perfect setting to unwind with your loved one.

Rustle up a delicious dinner in the kitchen to be enjoyed at the dining table as you plan the next day's adventures.

From here, relax and unwind with a good book or in front of the TV on the reclining chairs before heading to bed for some well-earned rest.

In the mornings, take a refreshing shower in the separate shower room, also home to a basin and WC, where you can prepare for your day.

After a happy day spent visiting one of the many nearby attractions, why not prepare a delicious meal before relaxing and watch all your favourite programs.

Glazed doors lead outside to a very pretty garden; a super spot to enjoy breakfast before exploring the surrounding area.

The centre of Illogan is a short walk away and offers a couple of restaurants and a pub serving food, as well as a mountain bike hire shop, so you can explore this beautiful area along the coast on two wheels.

Walkers will be delighted to discover Tehidy Woods close by, home to 250 acres of woodland and nine miles of routes to follow.

For evenings out, the vibrant town of Camborne has plenty to offer from big chain eateries to independent cafes, perfect for stopping for a spot of al fresco dining in the summer months.

At Godrevy Heritage you can find stunning beaches, even more walking routes, and the chance to spot nature both from shore and in the waters.

The coast and picturesque sandy beach at Portreath is just two miles away and from here you can join the South West Coast Path to enjoy a hike at Carvannel Downs.

The towns of St Ives and Penzance, with their idyllic harbours and vibrant arts scene, are also within easy reach.

Both towns are renowned for their glorious sandy beaches, while Penzance offers attractions such as the Jubilee Pool, the jewel in the seafront, and St Ives is often seen as a culture hub of Cornwall for its role as home to the Tate Museum.

Byghan Thornton is a fantastic base for exploring Cornwall's magnificent coastlines and attractions.
