  • “Attractive location for surfers”
    Sandy Cove was a bit of a disappointment on arrival. From the photo's we were expecting a detached cottage. Even though it was called an apartment, no other houses were to be seen on the photo's on the site, so we did not expect it to be in a block of apartments. The front of the building was not really inviting. However, the inside was just like the photo's, very well cleaned, with fresh white sheets and towels and everything you could wish for was in the apartment. The interior is prettily ...
    Sandy Cove was a bit of a disappointment on arrival. From the photo's we were expecting a detached cottage. Even though it was called an apartment, no other houses were to be seen on the photo's on the site, so we did not expect it to be in a block of apartments. The front of the building was not really inviting. However, the inside was just like the photo's, very well cleaned, with fresh white sheets and towels and everything you could wish for was in the apartment. The interior is prettily furnished and looks really nice. One disadvantage was the strong "cleaning" smell, which we found slightly offputting, but this gradually disappeared. Other disadvantages were the fact that there was no mobile signal whatsoever in the building and also the WiFi did not work well. Luckily we found out how to reset it, as this was necessary a few times a day. We did have a lovely week and enjoyed the apartment. Also on arrival there were freshly baked scones with jam and clotted cream waiting for us, which was a very nice surprise. The location on the edge of the Porthtowan beach will make it an attractive location for surfers, who will also feel at home at the Blue beach bar and restaurant on the other side of the beach

About the location

PORTHTOWAN

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.
