  • “Appledore is a comfortable and characterful place to base yourself.”

    Beaches, cycling routes, tin mines, local food, quad biking! We loved the local farm shop and the accessibility of two amazing surf and family beaches. Wonderful little garden and wood burning stove to enjoy an evening whatever the conditions.

The property

Blackwater 1 mile.

Just two miles from Porthtowan and fabulous beaches along North Cornwall's dramatic coast, Appledore Cottage is ideal for a family looking to enjoy the surrounding coastal scenery and quiet rural delights.

At the end of a small terrace of Cornish cottages, Appledore is set in a peaceful hamlet, boasting charming countryside views, with horses and rabbits grazing in the adjacent field.

This delightful, characterful cottage offers a large kitchen/diner, two sitting rooms (one with a woodburner), as well as three comfy bedrooms.

There is plenty of outdoor space, with an enclosed front and rear garden, where children and pets can play safely, while adults can relax with a drink and enjoy a BBQ on a sunny afternoon.

Park your car on the driveway and head through a gate and into the patio door at the side of the property, which welcomes you into the kitchen/diner.

This bright space provides all of the appliances you could need to cook delicious home-cooked meals for the whole family, which can be enjoyed together around the dining table as you make plans for the remainder of your stay.

After dinner, let the children get comfy in the snug, with a film on the Smart TV, as you relax in the main sitting room beside the comforting wood burning stove with a soothing glass of wine.

On the first floor a double master bedroom boasts stunning countryside views, plus a convenient en-suite shower room.

Two further bedrooms consist of a second double and large twin.

A main family bathroom offers the choice of a bath or shower.

Nearby Porthtowan has a wonderful Blue Flag beach offering immaculate pale sands; loved by surfers, it is also lifeguarded during the summer season making it safe for family fun.

A small selection of bars and cafes make it a great place to stop for a drink or bite to eat - Enjoy the sea views over a meal at the Blue Bar, or some award winning fish and chips from Seasmiths.

Set amongst dramatic cliffs, the length of coastline around Porthtowan provides breathtaking walks along the north coastal path towards St Agnes or Portreath, with much of the land well-kept by the National Trust.

The iconic former tin mines are a reminder of the areas rich mining heritage.

Appledore's location also makes it an ideal base for exploring further afield.

It's as easy to go west to St Ives, St Michael's Mount, or even Land's End, as it is to head east via the surfing beaches of the North Coast towards Padstow.

The beautiful South Coast is also within easy reach.

Why not visit Trelissick Gardens (20 minutes drive) and then board the King Harry Ferry, as your gateway to the Roseland Peninsula?

The city of Truro is only 8 miles away and has a lot to offer all members of the family, including the Hall for Cornwall and the Royal Cornwall Museum, along with plenty of retail therapy opportunities, bars, restaurants and cafes.

Truro is also the starting point for boat cruises to Falmouth via the stunning Fal Estuary.

A fabulous, well-presented cottage near the sea, perfect for families and lovers of Cornwall's beach life.

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.
