Contemporary Beach House With Sea Views

Overview

Property

Updated: 11-Nov-2016
Beach House in Porthtowan, Truro, Cornwall, England - 100m from Blue Flag National Trust Porthtowan surfing beach on World Heritage North Cornwall Coast

Beach House sits 100m from the Blue Flag beach in Porthtowan, a small seaside village with a stunning 1 mile sandy beach, framed by National Trust protected coastline and served by RNLI Lifeguards. Learn to surf at the legendary Tris Surf or enjoy the thrill of nature lying down on a foam body board. On the beach is the 'Blue Bar', a Good Pub Guide pub with great food, and Chapel Porth National Trust cafe, home of the world famous HedgeHog ice cream. Walkers take the South West coastal path from the gate through the UNESCO World Heritage North Cornwall coastline. For cyclists: take an 11 mile coast-to-coast cycle route along old railway lines and one of the best BMX facilities in the UK is nearby. Great location for all of Cornwall, only 5 minutes from the A30. 20 minutes to Truro, 30 minutes to Newquay, Falmouth and St Ives. St Michaels Mount, Padstow, Lands End and The Eden Project are within in a 45 minute radius.

About the Owner

We are a family with Cornish roots who love Porthtowan. We bought the Beach Cottage for the stunning views over the beach and coastline beyond. We furnished the house to a high standard with 1 to 2 families in mind, so you can have a relaxing holiday in Cornwall.

great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic well equipped house ,with fantastic views. Never felt on top of one another. Top Garden has a great seating area with a fantastic fire pit.

The only negative is there are 73 steps up to the property and as we were a bunch of oldies, some found this a bit of a problem.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We have just had a wonderful week staying at this beautiful beach house. It really does feel like a home from home accommodation.

We went to celebrate my husbands birthday with our three daughters and their partners my granddaughter and the dogs.

The location is superb so close to so many beautiful beaches, sitting on the terrace looking on to Porthtowan beach watching the surfers is great, and we have seen some of the most amazing sunsets, the unicorn pub and the blue bar are so close and very friendly.

There are a lot of steps up to the house which at first we thought might be a problem but you soon get used to them and worth every step for the wonderful views.

The only down side is we only went for one week could of stayed much longer

The perfect family getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was a fantastic choice of property for our annual weekend break with my parents, my wife, children and my brother and his family. With 5 children and a baby the house is an important choice and this was ideal - with amazing sea views from the balcony (or large windows when the weather wasn't so kind), nicely decorated rooms, a generous kitchen, and a TV that the children thought was amazing!

People should note that there are 70 steps up from the car parking spaces to the house - but this was not a problem for our party and they are not steep steps.

All in all, we all agree that a weekend was not long enough - definitely one to earmark for a longer return visit.

Cornish Christmas!

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful, spacious, very thoughtfully furnished cottage complete with Christmas tree and lights. It was very comfortable for the large family party of ten that we were and Christmas lunch went without a hitch due to the amazing kitchen. Carols at Truro Cathedral and the fabulous Christmas light show at Mousehole are a must as are fabulous walks along the coastal path that runs right past the door. The beach was a short, easy walk away and within 5 minutes from the house you have the stunning Blue beach bar and restaurant and a very friendly village shop for groceries, toiletries etc. I loved dealing with the owners who answered all my questions straight away and were very helpful. Would we go back? Yes, please.

Where do I start! This place is a real gem, a perfect retreat for families & large groups...it has absolutely everything you need. Comfortable and clean with a fab view. You won't be disappointed....we had great weather so didn't need wood burner...but the kids loved snuggling in on the sofa after a day on the beach,watching the huge screen. We can't wait to return. Thank you :)

Location

From the Owner

The North Cornwall Coast is simply stunning, crossing the River Tamar from England lifts the spirit and you know you are in a special place. Porthtowan is a hidden gem of a beach, though its place in the development of surfing in the UK has increased its popularity. With over a mile of sand you will always have plenty of space even in highest summer. We dreamed of a home with a sea view and Beach House has just that. No driving to the car park, just walk down and back at your leisure. Of course Cornwall has many other attractions and Porthtowan is centrally located for most of them.
