  • “A soul warming - home away from home!”

    We first visited this home a couple of summers ago and we loved it so much we returned again, this time for a winter break. Although it was a totally different vibe, it was equally as relaxing and the coastline was possibly even more beautiful! We thoroughly enjoyed the cream teas the owners lovingly provided for us, as we sat on the cosy deck at sunset (even with the light winter winds blowing onshore). I can’t fully explain what this place means to my partner and I in words, but it truly warms our souls every time we visit. We spend a lot of our time travelling to beautiful places around the world but Sandy Cove is fast becoming a favourite home away from home. Although some of the beach house owners in this development have allowed their apartments to become a little weathered, Sandy Cove is extremely well maintained and you can tell a lot of love and energy has gone into creating just the right space to welcome guests. We have already decided to revisit this summer and it cannot arrive too soon!

The property

Be it summer getaways or cosy winter staycations, Sandy Cove represents the epitome of British vacationing.

With fresh, light, contemporary styling, the luxury apartment is created for families, couples and surfers alike.

Sandy Cove rests in the quaint Cornish village of Porthtowan, a thriving, mythical and scenic bay, which inspired the likes of Rosamunde Pilcher and J.R.R.


Within a few moments walk of the apartment lay a small supermarket, delicatessen, ice cream shop, children’s play area and three pub/restaurants including the Blue Bar bistro for ocean front, alfresco dining.

Large French windows flood the apartment with light and open out to a super deck with sea views.

Relax here, with a good book or cook up fresh local food on the barbecue.

The apartment could hardly be closer to the Blue Flag Beach which is lifeguarded from May to September, and features a local surf school with surfboard and wetsuit hire for all ages. The South West Coast Path runs through the village, joining Chapel Porth, St Agnes and Portreath so bring your walking boots.

For a more cosmopolitan day, head to Falmouth - just 30 minutes away - and enjoy getting lost in the captivating lanes for a day of shopping, art galleries, artisan eateries and museums.

Part of a small development, Sandy Cove backs onto a no-through road.

The master bedroom features a double bed and the guest room offers a double bed with single upper bunk, suitable for couples or children.

For a sunny summer holiday or cosy winter break when the long nights roll in, stay snug under cosy blankets, while listening to the waves crash onto the white sand beach.

From luxury outdoor seating, watch the sunset from the deck, stargaze and enjoy the Cornish coast.

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.
