  • "We had a lovely holiday."

    The property was spacious and very clean. Was an added bonus having the hot tub and 2 allocated parking spaces. Wi-fi signal was excellent so ideal for streaming etc. Also nice being a 10-15 minute walk away from the beach. Local fish and chip shop is worth a try, need to pre order online though. There are a few things to feedback though. Two king rooms are not zip and link, they are 2 single beds pushed together which needs correcting on the listing, this did impact my sleep a bit. Downstairs shower door was very stiff, so not easy to open and close. We couldn't get the hob to work and there were no instructions. Pans were rusty and need replacing.

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.
