    “It was a real shame that there were two things that partly spoilt the holiday.”

    Firstly even though previous customers had mentioned online the softness of the mattress on the bed, the owners had failed to do anything about it, be warned. To say it was uncomfortable was an understatement and led to seven very uncomfortable nights. Secondly the tv in the bedroom doesn't work as no signal can be achieved, again as previously mentioned online on your website and the one in the lounge you need a degree to configure the set-up.

    Firstly even though previous customers had mentioned online the softness of the mattress on the bed, the owners had failed to do anything about it, be warned. To say it was uncomfortable was an understatement and led to seven very uncomfortable nights. Secondly the tv in the bedroom doesn't work as no signal can be achieved, again as previously mentioned online on your website and the one in the lounge you need a degree to configure the set-up. I know a tv isn't everything on a holiday but when it's advertised it should already be set up and working. The apartment is well equipped although there was a feeling of end of season about the place and a little maintenance wouldn't go astray, given the six hours between the property being vacated and new clients being allowed to gain access. I'm afraid to rate it as a 4 star holiday accommodation is far of the mark, perhaps a two would be better? Apart from that Porthcurno is a lovely place and it's a shame the edge was taken off our holiday. Hopefully these comments will be passed to the owners for some sort of action!

The property

Within a few minutes’ walk of the sandy beach at Porthcurno, this cute ground floor apartment is nestled in a valley setting.

The apartment is within a detached building of three properties with a shared garden which forms part of a former hotel and has all the ingredients to make a superb holiday bolt-hole for couples.

Light and bright with double aspect windows, pale porcelain tiled floor and an all white décor, the contemporary styled accommodation incorporates a living room with a dining area and smart kitchen.

The bedroom has a comfortable, relaxing ambiance with a tastefully appointed en-suite shower room - perfect for washing sandy toes after a sunshine filled day by the sea.

There is pretty garden which is shared with the other apartments.

Potter down to the beach and spend the day lazing by the sea or discover the cliff paths and stunning coastal views in either direction from the cove.

Porthcurno is home to the incredible Minack Theatre, carved from the granite cliff-face with dramatic backdrop of sea and sky - a magical site to visit or watch an evening performance.

Porthcurno also has a little café and ice cream shop but for eating out we recommend heading to Sennen Cove, Mousehole or Newlyn.

Land's End is just over three miles away with its majestic ruggedly natural landscape to be enjoyed in all weathers and cliff paths encompassing the Atlantic Ocean.
