  • “We had a great time at sandy cove, despite the beach being red flagged for half the week due to the storms!”


    The front door key is very sticky and we struggled to get it in and out of the lock every time - might just need oiling? We were a bit disappointed that we had to wait until 6pm to check in due to a deep clean, yet when we did there was a dog bowl with mouldy green water in it outside and kitchen items with food on them as they hadn't been cleaned properly. The rest of the apartment was very comfortable and the furnishings nice and modern. Could have done with a hairdryer, it's the first place I've ever stayed that didn't have one! A lovely place though shame about the derelict flat next door. The proximity to the unicorn and play area were brilliant, we enjoyed lots of cocktails and playtime at the park.

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..
