A holiday rental home or a holiday cottage in Porthcurno gives you freedom to explore Cornwall

The lovely beach faces southwest in the west corner of Porthcurno Bay and is bordered by Green Bay, the Minack Theatre, Logan Rock and Pednvounder Beach. It is close to Penzance, Land's End and the villages and hamlets of Paul, Sheffield, Newlyn, Treen, Trethewey, Treen, St Buryan and Lamorna.

Places to stay in Porthcurno

The coastline and cliffs around Porthcurno are areas of outstanding beauty and a holiday cottages give you much more freedom to explore Cornwall than a hotel. Self catering also means you can play, rest and eat when it suits you. Porthcurno has no commercial fishing boats, but they can be seen at the nearby coves of Penberth and Porthgwarra.

The extensive coastal path maintained by the National Trust attracts walkers, cyclists, birdwatchers, photographers and nature lovers. There is an ancient bridleway close to Trendrennen Farm that is popular with the Ramblers Association. Visitors often miss the Porthgwarra Valley and the perfectly secluded suntrap of Porthchapel beach, which is just a mile away from the holiday cottages in Porthcurno.

The cottage itself had everything we needed especially the very comfy bed.it was a 4 minute walk to 4 of st Ives 5 beaches with 5th portMinster being a twenty minute walk were you can catch the train on a short trip to Penzance. St Ives has everything you need without having to venture far from lively bars restaurants to winding streets full of quaint shops and bakeries selling the most delicious cakes and pasties. The views around st Ives are breathtaking especially the beaches and the surfing is must even for beginners. It was our 1st time to st Ives and we are already planning our return. Thank-you sarah
