Porthpean Beach, which lies adjacent to Porthpean Golf Club, is well suited for families thanks to its calm waves and broad strip of sand. Holidaymakers with dogs will want to visit Par Sands Beach, which welcomes dogs year-round.

Amazing house, very well equipped. Hospitable and helpful owner. Perfect!

5 of 5
We shared the house with 2 families of 4 and it was perfect. It was a great location for exploring southern Cornwall. The house is amazing, very well equipped, lovely and warm, with every convenience. We walked to Par beach, which was beautiful, the Par Inn, at the bottom of the road, is great for a quick refreshment and the local shops and take-aways very handy! Paul the owner was helpful and almost instantly answered any questions, but left us to enjoy holiday and was very hospitable. We would definitely recommend to others and will likely return!

Beautiful property with beautiful view!

5 of 5
A wonderful spacious, comfortable and warm apartment with a glorious view and walks literally on your doorstep. The hosts were very helpful and at the end of the phone should we need them. The apartment was very well equipped and the only thing i missed was a teapot! Had Sunday lunch at the Lewinnick Lodge, which was excellent. Sadly no surf on the doorstep for my husband but he managed to find a spot that was working! Highly recommended and we hope to be back. Thank you.
