    Everything we needed & spotless clean, we would have liked small coffee table in lounge for drinks & footstools for comfort as nice to have feet up after walks, spectacular views of sunset over the sea would be better if bush cut down in garden ,small points which would have enhanced a lovely stay, bungalow is a bit dated but spotlessly clean & comfy, its quite a steep walk to beach & back so not for anyone with mobility problems however its a short drive & we always got a parking place ...

The property

Hillcrest is a sunny, south-west facing bungalow, set on the cliff top above the village of Porthtowan.

Perfect for a family of six, the property provides access to National Trust land in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with a spectacular outlook along the coast towards St Ives.

Upon arriving at the property, you will discover two sought-after off-road parking spaces along with an on-street parking space, and an enclosed front lawn where you can enjoy a quiet moment and take in the sea breeze.

Enter Hillcrest to find a spacious sitting room with blanketed seating to take advantage of as you put on a family-favourite DVD.

Make your way into the country-style kitchen where several appliances await, rustle up some delicious meals with the help of a large fridge/freezer and handy electric oven!

When dinner is served, gather your group and enjoy a meal in the conservatory; from here you can watch the sun setting over the sea and Godrevy Lighthouse flashing its warning to sailors.

There are well-presented three bedrooms: a double with beautiful sea views, a twin with equally beautiful sea views and another twin, along with family bathroom and an additional walk-in shower room.

Outside, the gently sloping enclosed lawned garden is an ideal spot for children to play in safety while you enjoy a refreshing beverage and savour the sun's rays.

The Victory Inn, half a mile up the lane, offers an excellent welcome to all visitors (including dogs), well-kept beer and good pub food.

With its sandy Blue Flag award winning beach on the north coast of Cornwall, Porthtowan is renowned for its surf, sunbathing, rock pools and caves to explore, and is ideal for families with children; Porthtowan village, next to the beach, has an excellent village shop/post office, a popular bistro bar and a range of seasonal shops (including local ice cream).

Make your way to St Agnes, a large village, and bask in the sun on Trevaunance Cove, venture across Blue Hills tin and explore the quaint Little Orchard Village.

The South-West Coast Path, only a couple of minutes from the front door, skirts over the cliffs heading north past Chapel Porth cove, set against an iconic backdrop of historic mine workings and buildings, towards Newquay and south to Portreath, with its lovely harbour and beach, then onwards to St Ives.

Hillcrest provides an excellent base to explore many of Cornwall's attractions including: The Eden Project, The Lost Gardens of Heligan, St Michael's Mount, St Ives's Tate Gallery and many more.

There is so much fun to be had at Hillcrest.

About the location

PORTHTOWAN

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.
