The comfortable sofas and armchairs are set under the eaves of the penthouse and offer a quiet corner to sit and unwind. The cool white and coastal blue colour palette evoke the serenity of North Cornwall living whilst considered soft furnishings and finest furniture complete the luxury ambiance.

Leave the car behind and simply wander down the private steps and pathways to the beach below. Porthtowan is one of Cornwall's most scenic beaches with beautiful wide expanse of fine white sand and dramatic high cliffs blooming with wild gorse and sea pinks. The rolling surf makes this beach popular with local surfers, admire their performance from the comfort of the shore or embrace the elements yourself with the local surf school, a well placed outside shower is available for a post surf hose down.
