Simply wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for the wonderful week I spent in your apartment. Nothing could have been better: the nice reception, even with a bottle of wine in the fridge! The equipment of the apartment, the view! The noise of the waves while falling asleep...

Simply wonderful.

I hope to come back next year!

Phil was very helpful. Weather better than expected. Flat has all that we needed and the Blue Bar was a nice end for each day. We will likely return next March.

Really good short break.

Porthtowan is Cornwall’s best kept secret

Porthtowan derives its Cornish name from its most obvious feature - its sandy beaches and dunes (towans). Porthtowan is located on Cornwall's picturesque North coast centrally located to larger town amenities. Porthtowan is situated midway between St Agnes and Portreath with views of St Ives Bay together with its lighthouse and harbour to the south, St Agnes Head, Trevaunance Cove and Chapel Porth to the north.

Porthtowan is also a popular spot with surfers. The village has a number of pubs including the trendy Blue Bar where you can enjoy a drink or meal while looking over the beach and ocean.

Life guards ensure your safety and the shallow areas and pools are a magnet of seaside wildlife. Surfing lessons and equipment are always on hire and there is plenty to see and do. For walkers, the South West Coastal Path provides a memorable experience with its many breathtaking views. Porthtowan’s coastal footpath passes through some of the most beautiful area of cliffs and adjoining land some of which is owned by The National Trust.
