The property

Just two miles from Porthtowan and fabulous beaches along North Cornwall’s dramatic coast.

At the end of a small terrace of Cornish cottages is Appledore, set in a quiet hamlet offering spacious and charming holiday accommodation with two sitting rooms, one with a woodburner, as well as three comfy bedrooms, this Porthtowan cottage in Cornwall is ideal for a family holiday.

This Porthtowan cottage also offers a well-designed, fitted kitchen with dining area that opens to an enclosed cottage garden, where children and pets can play safely while the adults relax with a drink on a sunny afternoon and with both a front and rear garden, there is plenty of outdoor space.

On the first floor of this Porthtowan cottage is a double bedroom with an en-suite, along with two further bedrooms, all complete with fine views over the countryside towards St Agnes Beacon.

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

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

The city of Truro has a lot to offer all members of the family including the Hall for Cornwall, the Royal Cornwall Museum, and the starting point for boat cruises to Falmouth via the stunning Fal Estuary, along with plenty of retail therapy opportunities, bars, restaurants and cafes.

Land's End, St Ives and Penzance are other superb coastal destinations within easy reach.

The cottage is situated just half a mile from the Bissoe Trail, a cycle path connecting the north and south coast along a safe and beautifully scenic route; perfect for an active family day out.

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