Cottages in Porthtowan, Cornwall your home away from home

Porthtowan is on the north coast of Cornwall between St Agnes and Portreath. It became a seaside resort in Victorian times and is well-known for its beautiful sandy beaches and dunes (towans). The Blue Flag beach is one of the best in the area for surfing.

Above the small town is the Wheal Towan Mine which was one of the most productive copper mines in the 18th century. It was one of the first mines to install a steam engine which made a fortune for the Daneill family who lived at nearby Trelissick. The area is excellent for walking, cycling and horse-riding.

Things to Do in Porthtowan

Walking

The South West coastal path runs through the area with excellent views from the clifftop walks. The path can be steep and hilly at times so wear strong footwear and be prepared for plenty of steps and stiles. Surfing

Some of the best surfing in Britain can be found along this Atlantic coast. Porthtowan hosts the annual SAS Rip Curl Cornish and Open Longboard Championship. There is a local surf club and a hire shop for equipment, boards and wet suits right on the beach.

Explore National Trust Gardens

Cornwall has some exceptional gardens full of colour in the spring with primroses, camellias, azaleas and exotic flowering trees. In the summer the herbaceous beds are a delightful sight. Glendurgan Garden and Trelissick Garden are two of the most lovely, both just a short drive from your Porthtowan holiday rental.

A warm welcome at Annie's and Randell's holiday flat.

5 of 5
Annie and Randell made us feel very much at home. We were offered scones and tea when we arrived. The accommodation was everything we could have wished for and more. The garden and patio were perfect for alfresco dining - a great place to relax and unwind. We highly recommend. A good center to explore the North, West and South coast of Cornwall
