  • "We had a wonderful stay but I would highly recommend looking at the doors, front and main bedroom as they were very hard to close and lock, also the kettle needs replacing as it leaked onto the base a lot making it quite dangerous."

    The cleanliness was good but would advise pulling beds away from position as we found dirty tissues & chocolate wrappers down the sides of the twin beds otherwise the house was in a great location for us and we would definitely come again Kind regards Mrs T Hughes

  • "We had our second stay here, for two weeks this time in the lovely setting for Porthtowan."

    Like how this property is kind of tucked away and is a quiet little haven. All essentials are there such as a washer, dishwasher and storage, which is a godsend when you have a child like we do. The balcony and outdoor spaces really help too. The hot tub especially helped us all relax.

  • "Good position walking distance to sea."

    More attention maintenance and cleaning needed. Decking covered in bird poo,and last holiday makers stones and sand on patio tables. Upstairs balcony table very rusty Main bedroom one door to balcony stuck Mattresses, duvet and mattress protector not as clean as I would expect. Main ensuite shower not draining Lots of chipped crockery, and cooking utensils had broken handles. Hot tub was lovely, but would have been nice to have a decent set of plastic glasses ( as glass not allowed in it) Lovely fresh white towels, plenty of hot water. Spacious downstairs living area. Potential to be really nice, just needed a little more attention to detail and TLC. Overall we had a great holiday.

  • "We had lovely time at this property."

    We appreciate how clean and stylish the accommodation is and how conveniently located for village and beach. Abundance of clean bedding and towels was appreciated. The coastal path is directly accessible from Towan Valley. Some suggestions: the front and back doors jam a little. The carpets could do with a revamp. The main bedroom door doesn't close properly. Some of the crockery is cracked or chipped. The dishwasher is temperamental. There are no toilet roll holders in the wcs. Outside the waste bins were overflowing. We brought our own dog gate for the stairs and perhaps to have one on site would be helpful. This property is very dog friendly so we would book again.

    Thank you for your feedback and making us aware of these points, we will look into getting them sorted. We are glad to hear you had a lovely stay and hope to see you back again soon. Property Owner

    .beds where comfy and wifi fast..perfect!!...would have liked a gate (or baby gate ) for outside on the decking ,stop the dogs from wondering but that is just a luxury for us with pooches..would definitely book again (march)?..cant fault it. (only one small fault ,no change of bedding for second week we usually get..but I washed them and dried them quickly so no big deal )

  • "It was mentioned in the listing that there would be a swimming pool on site however that was not the case as when we got there some people said it was a plan about 5years ago and not got pushed any further."

    Also the cleanliness of the house was not great, there was cobwebs everywhere, inches of dust on top of wardrobes and on blinds etc. Hence all the cobwebs there were loads of spiders crawling about which is understandable because of the season changes but for the amount there was it was not nice and comfortable to sleep with. Speaking of comfort, the beds and pillows were ridiculous, I had 4 pillows to myself but felt like I had 1, I’ve got chronic back pain originally and so has my mum who has got a medical condition where her back needs to be risen and we were both in so much discomfort due to the pillows being so flat. The mattress itself was average, no life or bounce to it. We had a maintenance man come out as I went to put the heating on in my room, as soon as I did I could smell gas. My mum said it’s probably just dust I can smell, as she went to check behind the radiator, the whole radiator fell off the wall and was hanging on by tiny temporary screws. Immediately turned the radiator off, took pictures and sent them straight to the people in charge. Few hours later they sent out that maintenance man who fixed it straight away but mentioned the mattresses hadn’t been changed in over 11years, when the site first ever opened?? Besides all that, had a great stay, liked how big and spacious the place was along with the fact that they provided a smart TV where you could watch Netflix, Disney etc.

  • "Great location, weather spot on."

    .. We felt there could have be more kitchenware eg glasses, big pan and utensils.. Plastic under sheets were very uncomfortable in hot weather and the duvet covers were clearly too large for the duvets....

    Hi Kevin. Thanks for your feedback, we welcome your suggestions so we can keep on improving our guests stay. Unfortunately glassware does get broken and on this occasion I wasn’t aware that the glasses had run low. I have noted your comments about the linen and will get this sorted with our housekeeper. Hope you will visit again. Kind regards, Rob. Property Owner

The property

Perched on the coast in the eco-friendly Towan Valley Resort, on the edges of Porthtowan, Cornwall is this contemporary, semi-detached holiday home of 11 Towan Valley.

The property accommodates a family of six who are looking for a getaway with great access to the region's attractions whilst offering tastefully furnished interiors throughout.

After parking in the off-road space to the front of the abode, climb the steps up and into your new home-from-home.

Upon entry, grab a seat on one of the cushioned sofas and kick back in front of the TV, where you can choose your favourite show to watch with your loved ones.

Continue to the kitchen, a space enjoying glossy fittings beholding a selection of appliances, including a convenient washing machine and dishwasher!

The designated chef of the group will have a ball whipping up culinary treats here, to be enjoyed at the dining table, or out on the front decking in the sun.

At the end of the day, spruce yourself up in the cloakroom before climbing the stairs to discover three fabulous bedrooms.

The first of the bedrooms is the master, where a zip/linked king-size bed can be found, enjoying a TV, access to a private, furnished balcony along with a handy en-suite shower room; the latter bedrooms are equally well-furnished, with one offering a double and the other featuring twin beds.

The family bathroom completes the accommodation, where leisurely soaks can be enjoyed in the bath, before wrapping yourself up in a warm towel from the heated rail.

A highlight of the property is its private hot tub, where soothing dips can be relished at the end of busy days.

Walk or drive a short way into the heart of Porthtowan, where a range of amenities await, including a stunning beach that is great for surfing and is also known for hosting the popular Blue Bar and Unicorn on the Beach eateries.

Embark on a hike via the South West Coast Path, further into the St Agnes Heritage Coast, where the fantastic sights of Chapel Porth Beach, St Agnes Beacon and Wheal Cotes are waiting to be discovered.

Visit the large village of St Agnes and tour the Saint Agnes Museum, embark on a tour with SUP in a Bag or sample one of its several eateries, including the St Agnes Fission Chip Shop and the popular St Agnes Bakery.

Why not head to Portreath, where a sandy beach offering surf lessons, the Feadon Wildlife & Education Centre allows you to meet a range of animals, and a path leads to the scenic Carvannel Downs?

Venture further along the coast to find Perranporth and Newquay, fantastic places for beachfront activities; alternatively, why not check out the city of Truro or tour St Austell's Eden Project?

Create everlasting memories during a break at 11 Towan Valley.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

About the location


St Agnes 4 miles; Portreath 4 miles; Truro 9 miles.

Porthtowan is a small village resting on west Cornwall’s beautiful coastline, renowned for its Blue Flag beach, which at low tide exposes almost a mile and a half of fine, golden sands. Fringed by impressive granite cliffs, the beach is a popular surfing venue and is lifeguarded during the summer, making it ideal for families. Porthtowan is part of the St Agnes designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and there are some wonderful walks to be found, offering vivid scenery along the South West Coast Path, whether you choose to head east to St Agnes or west to Portreath. The towns of St Ives and Penzance, with their art galleries, restaurants and quaint harbours, are half an hour’s drive away, whilst Flambards Theme Park, The Cornish Seal Sanctuary in Gweek, and the Goonhilly Satellite Earth Station are just a few of the other diverse attractions scattered around this picturesque region. A great base for a varied family break.
