About the Owner

We are sisters who bought and named our beach house, 'Valentyne', in memory of our much loved Father. We live in Berkshire and Somerset respectively with our families and wanted to have somewhere to spend family holidays close to the beach.

Fantastic beach house in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

This is our second visit to Valentyne as we so love the house and Porthtowan, a much undiscovered corner of Cornwall. The house is beautiful, so comfortable and well equipped with lovely nautical touches. It was also very cosy even at the end of October, we only needed to put on the heating twice in the evening.

I had forgotten there is a welcome pack of milk, butter, eggs, bacon, bread and oj on arrival which is great.

We had a super week, kids and hubby even went body boarding at the end of Oct! Sea temp 15 oC! Full wet suits of course. The surf shop shuts at the end of the Oct half term and this is the end of the lifeguard beach watch season so only for hardened surfers after this I presume!. A huge bonus is being able to walk from the house to the beach (about a 10 min walk) in your wetsuit if necessary, and there are outdoor showers in the car park next to house to rinse off on return. We have had some lovely coastal walks from the house and a bit further north from Constance bay around the very scenic Trevose Head. If you are still feeling energetic the coast to coast bike ride is great and you can hire bikes from the bike barn on the road between Porthtowan and Portreath, it is 16miles return along a disused railway line (16 miles from the bike barn, 22 miles from the start in Portreath).

The weather was beautiful too, warm sunny and dry, perfect walking weather.

There are some decent local eateries, not forgetting the famous 'Blue Bar' overlooking the beach. There is also a great range of restaurants in neighbouring St. Agnes.

Very comfortable and everything you might need

  • 5 of 5

We found the house to be clean, well equipped and easy to heat. Beds comfortable, linens crisp and great shower. Well maintained. Lovely location with a nice walk back from the village after dinner. We had flashlight/torch to get back in the dark as there are (thankfully) no street lights on the lane. Eggs, bacon, juice and milk in the 'fridge and a fresh loaf of bread were much appreciated.

We enjoyed a relaxing, peaceful week a some good Cornish walks! Enjoyed the Blue Bar and the local ice cream, beach walks and watching the surfers.

Listing description accurate and the owners a pleasure to rent from. I would definitely recommend to others and hope to have an opportunity to return. Thank you Ailsa and Andrea.

Fantastic house within with all you need

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week here. The house has everything that you need, a real home from home. There were so many things in the cupboards and drawers we kept being surprised. The beach is a gem and our daughter spent most days in the surf and loved it. Both the unicorn pub and the blue bar have lovely food and the hot chocolate from the cafe is amazing. Thank you for a lovely week.

Great location, beautifully presented

  • 5 of 5

This is a great holiday house. Close to the beach and stunning cliff top walks. Our boys loved playng on the green immediately to the front of the house, which was safe and secure, and they made lots of friends during their stay.

The house is tremendously well-equipped, spacious and immaculate while retaining a comfortable, homely feel.

Ailsa and Andrea are great hosts. Arranagements were simple and well organised.

We couldn't have asked for anything better!

Beautifully warm and cosy

  • 5 of 5

We stayed over the Christmas period with our two older children. The property is beautifully appointed, and provided everything we needed for a "get away from it all" family break. Very warm and cosy, very comfortable furnishings and fittings and plenty of space for all of us. We would definitely recommend this property.

Absolutely perfect.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely clean and tidy house with everything we needed and in a great position. 6 of us stayed at 'Valentyne' for our daughters wedding at the nearby Eco park, and 3 other groups of the wedding party stayed in properties on the same development so it couldn't have been more convenient.

Very well run property with great feedback from helpful and pleasant owners.

From the Owner

The fact that you are able to park your car and not use it for a few days really appealed to us as Porthtowan beach is literally a 5 minute walk from the beach house. Local amenities are also all within a 5-7 minute walk. Porthtowan is a lovely small surfing village situated on the North Coast which provides some of the best surfing conditions in the country. Our beach house has a contemporary feel with extensive use of wood and glass in the design. The sloping Sedum roof gives it a unique appearance and you will find it is fully equipped with all modern appliances ensuring all your needs are catered for, for a fun, relaxing and memorable holiday.
