  • "This is such a lovely house and we had a great holiday."

    It had everything we needed. Very dog and child friendly, wonderful view of the beech. Really felt like we were in a family home. We would book again.

  • "This is an amazing place."

    Breath-taking views, lots of walking, watching the tide coming in and out was spectacular. Our dog loved the views. The place was very clean, bedrooms and bathrooms well kept. Property had washing machine and dryer, which made life a lot easier. Also get to see bunny rabbits in the garden. Honestly i would come back again, because of the location and the standard of the property. wonderful memories, and really truly relaxed. As a family of 4 we spent real quality time. Thank to the owner, for organising the key arrangements. it went very smoothly.

  • "Advert said both bedrooms had a TV, but only the master bedroom did!"

    Curtains in bedrooms too long so got quite grubby. Bathrooms could do with an update. Otherwise, beautiful position with stunning views of Porth beach! House very clean and tidy, had everything we needed and more! Really lovely holiday enjoyed by all!

    The cottage is in a beautiful location, absolutely perfect right on the sea, big garden, not secure for dogs we had to tie ours up on lines when they went out, would be great to make it bit more secure but it’s down to dog owners to protect their dogs, it was a lovely property… bad points to be corrected are: curtains in rooms too long and were a bit dirty, beds need updating, mattresses were protected but not comfortable new beds would be perfect, we didn’t get a great deal of sleep due to this, bathrooms spotless but one in double room could be updated, chairs at dining room table were grubby on the seats, reupholstered and covered in plastic would be perfect, blinds upstairs don’t work, other than these things it was just perfect for us, if these things were updated we would come back time and time again as location is amazing, would appreciate knowing if things get upgraded so we can rebook in future

  • "The cottage was in the grounds of the hotel only to find the hotel was closed."

    Eventually found the property. The cottage was beautiful overlooking the beach. However with the hotel being shut the surrounds looked very tired and some things were-in need of repair. But this didn’t spoil our holiday.

  • "The adjacent hotel had closed down."

    Disappointing as we’d hoped to visit for drinks & restaurant. And while the main bedroom showed a double bed it seemed v small and not very comfortable

  • "There is usually a folder provided with information about the property."

    This was not located which meant for example I had to work out how to switch the heating on at the boiler. Apart from this the property met our expectations and was in a lovely location with beautiful views of the beach and coastline.

  • "Excellent location, very quiet and great for star gazing as no lights, easy to just sit and look at the waves."

    Easy 10 minute walk to the pub and beach when tide is in although quick walk down the path and cliff steps when tide out.The hall and stairs needed a bit of decorating but probably due to being late in the year and heavy usage. Balcony very slippy when wet as decking boards. Would definitely stay there again and would recommend if you can manage without wifi

  • "Wonderful view from this house."

    The only thing that would stop me booking again would be the lack of wifi.

  • "We have been staying in Porth for many years and this has been our best stay yet."

    Central base, with easy access for exploring Cornwall. Gorgeous walks to beautiful nearby beaches, topped by awe inspiring views of Porth beach from the windows of the house. Our family (and our collie dog) felt very fortunate to have the chance of spending our holiday in this delightful and charming property.

  • "In general everything was very good."

    The location, views, the setting out of the cottage, facilities etc. met expectations and ordinarily I would have returned to the property in the future. However, there was a lot of dog hair on the settee and on the floor of the double bedroom. A pillow accidentally fell onto the floor in the said bedroom and it was literally covered with black dog hair. I did not like this at all. Should anyone else be considering staying at the property, they must understand that the people who stayed prior to them may well have had a dog/s with them and to expect hair. People must take notice of adverts showing 'dog friendly' or 'no pets' allowed.

The property

This delightful semi-detached cottage is situated in the grounds of the Glendorgal Hotel, in the seaside village of Porth in Cornwall.

There is no finer cottage nearby that will offer such luxurious accommodation in such a stunning location and is perfect for families and friends wishing to get away from it all.

As you enter, go up a few steps and it will lead you to the stunning, spacious living room with amazing uninterrupted views over the beach and directly across to Porth Island.

The balcony here will offer a chance, at any time of day, to relax and simply watch the tide ebb and flow.

Go down two small sets of stairs and this will lead you to the two en-suite bedrooms, both with a bath and shower, and both with French doors leading out onto the patio and garden, a lovely spot for breakfast.

The garden is also accessed from the middle floor, and is ideal for both children and dogs to run around, but care must be taken not to attempt to climb over the dense hedge at the bottom.

A short walk takes you down the steps that lead you directly onto one of Cornwall's finest beaches which is sheltered and protected by headlands on both sides, and access to the coastal path is even easier making a walk into Newquay most inviting.

However, for keen walkers, a walk in the other direction at low tide from Porth to Watergate Bay along the beach is a must.

After well-earned refreshments in an award-winning beach café, a beautiful walk back along the cliff path with fantastic views will make the day one you will never forget.

For a shorter family walk, the walk across the bay to Porth Island is also a must.

Accessed by a narrow footbridge, the island has impressive prehistoric earthworks and the remains of a Bronze Age settlement.

Newquay is well-known for a host of pubs, cafes, restaurants and clubs but Porth itself has much to offer with a pub on the beach, an excellent restaurant at Porth Veor Manor, a tapas bar and cafes.

Please note that the beach has a dog ban between Easter and September, making it more attractive for dog owners outside this period.

Whatever the time of year, this wonderful holiday home really is hard to beat for a great beach holiday in a stunning location with accommodation to match.
