From your Holiday Door

Lead from the living space and step out onto a balcony high above the beach. To the side of the apartment a generous gravel courtyard offers a wonderful place to sit and watch the world go by from early morning surfers to evening beach walkers. The outside dining table welcomes al fresco dining with relaxed sofas just perfect for a lazy afternoon with a good book. Private beach access leads directly down to the shores of Porthtowan Beach for ‘sandy toes’ in just a minute. Porthtowan is a characterful North Cornwall village with welcoming local ambiance. Enjoy a delicious supper or sunset sundowner at the Blue Bar or wander along the beach with ice cream in hand. A children’s playground has been recently updated. The nearby town of St Agnes has plenty of places to eat out including local pub grub, fine Cornish bistro fare to wonderful seafood. The cosmopolitan harbour town of St Ives is well worth a day trip, boat trips around the bay and a tempting collection of galleries and shops will keep the holiday party entertained. From this central base you are well placed to explore West Cornwall and contrast of scenery from coast to coast.

Ella Foster-Stiles

I have rated just about everything excellent. Minor point-no pen in property to fill out guest book and tell others and owners how wonderful it is! I usually have one in my bag but didn't on this occasion so left no comments. On this note, I would be grateful if you would let the owners know what a beautiful, tasteful, comfortable property they have which we enjoyed to the max and took great care of. Thanks again for the great service. We had a memorable week.
