The property

Hillcrest is a detached bungalow set on a hillside overlooking the North Cornish village of Porthtowan and its popular sandy beach.

Keen walkers are just five minutes walk from the Coast Path; head for the old mining town of St Agnes to the north or to Portreath and its tiny harbour to the south.

The views from Hillcrest along the coast to St Ives and Godrevy Lighthouse are exceptional.

Inside, the simple lounge leads to a conservatory which doubles as a dining room; from here you can watch the sun setting over the sea.

Hillcrest has three bedrooms, a double and two bedded twin rooms, all sharing a family bathroom.

Outside, the gently sloping, enclosed lawned garden is an ideal spot for children to play in safety.

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.
