About Lucy Dowson

We are a family of five - Lucy, Jim, our daughter Amelie 7, son Sam 5 and Bertie the dog. Both myself and my husband work in travel and have spent many years travelling to far flung places; never visiting the same place twice. However once our children arrived holidaying in the UK and going somewhere familiar has become somewhat more appealing. As as result we decided to buy a holiday home in the UK that we could use for family holidays. With fond memories as children holidaying in Cornwall we stumbled across Towan Valley and were instantly sold on the house, the development, the village of Porthtowan and of course the beach. To this day we have had many enjoyable weeks away with family and friends and I hope you enjoy our 'home away from home'!

Lucy Dowson purchased this house in 2012

Why Lucy Dowson chose Truro & Falmouth area

Come rain or shine, warm or cold, as a family we are on the beach for hours a day, surfing, rock-pooling, sand-castling, dog-walking, scrambling or generally having fun. When it's too wet we watch the waves from The Blue Bar! We eat fresh fish caught locally, and enjoy trying out so many local foodie haunts. We are incredibly lucky to have Mulberry in an up and coming area of Cornwall, a short walk to the beach. On each visit we discover more of the region, sharing our finds in the house folder. There's so much to do and see in such close proximity and we never tire of discovering more.

What makes this house unique

Mulberry is part of the holiday community of Towan Valley with its 28 houses and there are always new people to meet here. Located at the top of the development it is next to the field where cows graze and its paved patio adds a great private area for barbecues or children's play. It's a mere 50 yards from the car-park where there are outdoor showers to wash down the sand after surfing. We have enjoyed adding our own elements to the house from the wooden gig oars hanging on the wall to the Ordnance Survey map in the sitting-room: we hope our guests will enjoy our beautiful house!

We've had a great stay, perfect location for a fun girlie weekend. Lots of fun had, walk over to Trevaunance Cove, followed by lunch at the Drifty well worth it! Thank you so much the house is lovely!

The Marshalls -Aug 13

Had a good week, lots of amazing sights locally, topped off by the beach. We spent a couple of fun filled days enjoying the waves. The house had plenty of space for 6 adults and 1 baby with lovely surroundings to enjoy

Lovely house by the sea

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week with our 19 year old son and his friend and our 14 year daughter and her friend and our dog in August. The house is extremely comfortable with all mod cons and has a really relaxing feel! The coastal walks are stunning along with the beach and views around. We spent a few nights at the blue bar overlooking the beach watching the sunset with a few drinks, we also had dinner there a couple of nights which was very enjoyable. We all loved our week in porthtowan which I would highly recommend and also will hopefully return to again to soon!

Like our second home!

  • 5 of 5

We have been to Towan Valley four times now and of course will be returning to our second home again in the new year. As soon as we walk through the door we feel happy, calm, stress free and ready to start our fab holiday.

There is everything you need in our second home, you will want to come back for more.

The Blue Bar right near the beach is extremely family friendly with really nice food (especially naughty cheesy chips!)

We love Towan Valley 👦🏻👩🏼💁🏻👱🏽🐶🐶

Beautiful location lovely accommodation

  • 5 of 5

Very spacious, clean and well appointed Eco House. Modern and well equipped kitchen with everything you can think of including a very welcome tea/coffee/sugar/milk for when you arrive. Master en-suite bedroom is very spacious and the other two bedrooms are adequate in size. All beds extremely comfortable. Its location in the village is such that no one has to pass your door. Peaceful with the only sound coming from the birds. Great location with easy walk along the cliff tops and down to the village/beach. Hope to return again.

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (2 kids, 2 adults) stayed here for a week in May. The property is on a lovely development just a 10 minute walk from Porthtowan beach and the village shops and pubs. The property is stylishly decorated and has a much more homely feel than places we've stayed in before. The accommodation is to a high standard yet comfortable and welcoming. Great little patio for barbecues and the kids play area/football pitch is right behind the property so great for keeping an eye on the kids whilst you're relaxing. Porthtowan itself is lovely, some great places to eat on the seafront where again you can watch the kids play in the evening whilst you watch the sunset/have a drink/spot seals! The beach is great for playing, body boarding and surfing. Some great walks around the cliff tops with stunning views; we were lucky enough to spot 3 seals lazing in the shallows - one of the highlights. Close to St Ives for great restaurants, the Tate and shopping. We also had a brilliant time with Koru Kayaking (sea kayaking) which the kids (6 and 8) loved. We will definitely visit again, a lovely property and great village in a beautiful area.

A modern well equipped welcoming holiday home, we all really enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to return to Mulberry again.

Many bbq's were enjoyed on the patio and many visits to the blue beach bar for lunch.

Porthtowan is an ideal place for a family holiday and Mulberry the ideal accommodation.
