Beach House in Porthtowan, Truro, Cornwall, England - 100m from Blue Flag National Trust Porthtowan surfing beach on World Heritage North Cornwall Coast
We are a family with Cornish roots who love Porthtowan. We bought the Beach Cottage for the stunning views over the beach and coastline beyond. We furnished the house to a high standard with 1 to 2 families in mind, so you can have a relaxing holiday in Cornwall.
Mark purchased this House in 2011
Why Mark chose Porthtowan
The North Cornwall Coast is simply stunning, crossing the River Tamar from England lifts the spirit and you know you are in a special place. Porthtowan is a hidden gem of a beach, though its place in the development of surfing in the UK has increased its popularity. With over a mile of sand you will always have plenty of space even in highest summer. We dreamed of a home with a sea view and Beach House has just that. No driving to the car park, just walk down and back at your leisure. Of course Cornwall has many other attractions and Porthtowan is centrally located for most of them.

Family Christmas gathering
Apart from minor drawbacks of parking and slippery steps and decking it was an excellent property for a family Christmas. We particularly enjoyed the comfortable sitting room with a lovely view of the sea and also the lovely light dining area and decking. Master bedroom especially attractive.
Kitchen well equipped and the house worked well. We had a very enjoyable and memorable family Christmas.
November 2019 Visit to the beach house
The house is ideal for the summer I would think but for the winter not so good.
We didn’t realise there were so many steps up to the property as it wasn’t clear in the description there were 70 steps to the entrance from the road
It would have been helpful to have a pint of milk ok left n the fridge or something welcoming
Great kitchen well equipped with all you need
There was a lot of dust under the bed and cobwebs on the lights... overall it was an ok few days
Lovely beach house
Lovely house in great location near beach. Plenty of room for extended family and very well equipped. Parking was only slight issue but parked in town as quiet.
Beach House, Porthtowan
A beautifully positioned house and very spacious. Would benefit from a bigger cooker as large parties use this rental (we ate in often). You can only really park one car on the driveway safely. I would still return.
Great space for families & amazing view
We loved staying in this property. Well equipped for children, had everything we needed - even an outdoor shower to wash off the sea & sand! The decking is lovely to eat out on & enjoy the fantastic view. Local shops great & had yummy food at both The Unicorn & The Blue. The house was warm & spacious, only downside to it was the noisy stairs & floorboards upstairs (we had babies & toddlers to attend to!), but wouldn’t put us off coming again!
100m to the beach.
