  • "A lovely apartment with everything we needed."

    All rooms are a good size and excellently cleaned. Great parking and location for us. The beautiful beach is a 15 min walk down hill and dogs are allowed on the beach before 10 am and after 6 pm in the Summer. The good sized garden is to the front of the property with some traffic passing to the beach, museum and theatre so not entirely private or quiet but this didn’t bother us. There is a lovely large picnic bench with umbrella but more comfortable garden furniture would have been welcome. The garden benefits from the evening sunshine which we enjoyed for some evening meals. Just to note the pub mentioned on the listing is closed. There is a lovely museum 5 minutes walk away which is well worth a visit. Closest shop is 8 miles away so stock up on your travels. Would stay again.

  • "Have no problems with the cottage but people considering booking Porthcurno beware, 10 mins from the beach is accurate is you are Royal Commando trained especially the walk back, the Cafe had strange opening hours and obviously did not want to cook breakfast as it didn’t open until 11am and the real killer described as a 5 min walk to pub was accurate but the Pub has closed down, Sykes remove that listing would not have booked if I was aware."


    Thank you for your feedback. We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay at Garden Apartment. We confirm Porthcurno village is situate alone a hill so going up and down by foot can be quite a workout. The pub is not closed down completely but only operates during the summer season. We hope you will visit Garden Apartment and Cornwall for more lovely holidays. Property Owner

    Perfect setting and lovely outside space. This was our second stay, and it was every bit as good as we remembered it from a few years ago. Thank you very much.

  • "The Garden Apartment is first class holiday accommodation."

    It is extremely well positioned for access to the beach, Minack theatre, and walking the coastal path. Every care is taken by the owners to ensure that holidaymakers have a great stay in the accommodation.

  • "We have been to the flat on 3 occasions which we feel has the following advantages: 1)It is within walking distance of the beach, the Minack Theatre, the Museum, the Logan Inn Pub (via public right of way or 10minutes in the car) 2) Has access to a good sized garden - useful if you have a dog."

    3) Has plenty of parking at the rear. 4)The floor plan is well laid out, with generous room sizes and circulation with few issues for maneuvering a wheelchair. However, the flat does not have an accessible toilet. 5) It is close to local walks. Also, we found the couple who owned the property were friendly and flexible.

  • "Great place to stay, lovely and quiet with fantastic parking."

    Only thing that could be improved is the electric power shower, which ran hot and cold - but plenty of hot water for baths at the end of the day on the coast path! Excellent level of cleanliness and communication on COVID expectations.

  • "Fabulous apartment."

    Clean, everything you could possibly need, (and a bottle of bubbly to welcome you ). What a great place to spend a week, lovely enclosed garden for our 2 labs to enjoy, and all just a few minutes walk from the superb beach! Brilliant!

  • "OMG. The garden apartment is literally amazing, it’s located 2 minutes from the sea, it’s beautifully presented and very well equipped with everything you need for your holiday."

    It even has its own private garden and 2 parking spaces. The owners kept in touch in the run up to the holiday keeping me informed of any changes due to covid, Which was lovely. I can’t recommend this apartment enough, especially if you’re visiting for a walking holiday as it’s very close to the coastal path. If I come and stay this far down again, I wouldn’t hesitate booking here again. You’ll love it. I promise.

  • "The accommodation was as described in a beautiful location and allowed us to bring our two behaved dogs."

    The dogs very much enjoyed spending time in the garden, and we were very surprised to find that the owners had left us a hamper including a bottle of Cava, and some yummy biscuits. We met the owners as we were leaving and they were very friendly and helpful and happy that we had enjoyed our holiday. We very much hope to come back soon. Perfect for people who love walking with dogs and large enough to accommodate a family.

    There was a lovely welcome pack of milk, tea, coffee, biscuits,jam & a bottle of Cava. I was particularly impressed that our dogs hadn't been forgotten to as there was some treats left for them. We had a minor issue as the TV wasn't working but it was dealt with so speedily & efficiently that it wasn't a problem. In fact I've already recommended this particular property to my friend on FB as she has a dog & is looking for somewhere to go! Would definitely go again!

    It is spotlessly clean, fully and appropriately equipped, and extremely comfortable. Its situation - only 10 minutes from the beautiful beach at Porthcurno - is first class. It is also near to some of the most beautiful countryside (and the coastal path) in the UK, plus the famous Minack Theatre.

The property

Located just a few minutes walk from the beach, this welcoming ground floor apartment provides spacious accommodation in the small village of Porthcurno on the West Cornwall coast.

Fabulous coastal walks on your doorstep with outstanding scenery, this apartment is ideal for a gathering of family or friends.

The three crisp and pretty bedrooms will give you a restful night’s sleep where you can wake to views of the garden.

Step into the contemporary and spacious kitchen and you will find all the mod cons ready to rustle up a bit to eat and the sitting area is the perfect place to relax after a hard day at the ocean.

The private, enclosed garden area is ideal for alfresco dining with its raised decking area and separate lawn.

Porthcurno is a small village with the beach having white sands, azure waters and dramatic headlands.

This beautiful cove nestles in a glorious valley setting which is perfect for hazy days beside the sea, swimming, surfside picnics and exploring the cliff paths.

The magical open air Minack Theatre, carved from the cliff face with a backdrop of ocean and sky is definitely worth booking to catch a performance.

Mousehole is within easy driving distance with its quaint harbour dotted with art galleries, eateries and traditional inns, and the colourful resort of Penzance set in Mounts Bay, is home to the bustling port of Newlyn and the picturesque landmark of St Michael’s Mount.

Take your photo at Lands End and continue around the coast to Sennen Cove for some great surfing.

Boasting spacious, super comfy and well presented holiday accommodation this a great retreat from which to explore the north and south Cornish coasts.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.
