    “Absolutley Fabulous.”


    I stay in many Sykes properties during the year and they are all fabulous. I have to say that The Watch @ Porthcurno is now my all time favourite. Such a beautiful apartment with a wonderful setting for Sea watching and Wildlife. Far bigger than it appears in the photographs....with everything you need for day to day requirements. Owners are friendly & helpful but non intrusive and are only a short distance away if needed. I went to sleep listening to the waves across the rocks and was woken by birdsong, in my opinion 100% iddylic.

This property is part of the Cornish & Devonshire Cottage Holidays collection.
Over 500 carefully selected and perfectly located Cornwall and Devon properties, helping you create your perfect holiday.

The property

This two bedroom apartment is located in The Old Hotel in The Valley at Porthcurno, only a five minute stroll from the beach, coastal path and Minack.

Equally perfect for couples or a small family, The Watch is a beautiful place to stay, refreshing and inviting, with quirky features to compliment your holiday experience.

Enter into the hallway where you will discover an open-plan sitting room graced with sea views, and a small balcony, which brings you closer to the enticing surroundings.

Inside, neutral colours create a soothing place to unwind, with slanted ceilings above, and an electric fire to bring warmth on those cooler evenings.

The cream sofas offer the perfect chance to relax, with a table for six situated by the kitchen, ideal for breakfast time or meals after the sun goes down.

The bedrooms match the light and neutral theme of the cottage wholeheartedly, each laced in whites and blues for an almost ocean feel, elevated by natural light from the window which welcomes the inspiring outside in.

Ample storage is available, and the bathroom benefits from both a bath and a shower for a quality finish.

Penzance, 9 miles, with its winding streets, shops, clubs, restaurants and harbour is a must, as it is the jumping-off point for day trips to the Scilly Isles.

The South West Coast Path passing through Penzance winds its way along the clifftops towards Land’s End.

On the way, stop off for a coffee and a rest at beautiful Lamorna Cove, explore the open air Minack Theatre and marvel at the cliffs.

A special retreat in a magnificent part of Cornwall.

Land’s End 4 miles; St. Just 9 miles; Penzance 9 miles; St Ives 17 miles.

The small village of Porthcurno is situated four miles from Land’s End on the south coast of West Cornwall. The village has a sandy beach, a café, a restaurant that’s open during the summer season and cliff-top and coastal walks. Porthcurno is also home to the Museum of Global Communications, where you can learn about the underwater cables that connected the village to various places around the world. To the west of Porthcurno is the famous Minack Theatre, which is a superb open air venue with 750 seats and boasts views across Porthcurno Bay to The Lizard. Close by is Land’s End, the most westerly point of mainland England offering something for all the family, and also within reach are lovely Cornish towns and villages, including the popular resorts of Penzance and St Ives. A delightful base for exploring this part of Cornwall.
