This stunning, three double-bedroom Finnish Lodge, nestles into the side of Carn Marth Hill, a World Heritage Site. From the huge triple glazed Cathedral windows there are far reaching views across the rural landscape of mid-Cornwall. Enjoy relaxing by the pool during the day and soaking in the hot tub by night!
The living room is flooded with light from the double height windows as is the mezzanine double bedroom. The wood burning stove creates a cosy atmosphere in the evenings or for winter visits. You will enjoy the hot tub looking out over the rural landscape. The property is well equipped for 6 people to enjoy a very comfortable stay.
We live on the side of Carn Marth Hill and you can walk directly from the house to the top of the hill where you will find a lovely little quarry lake where locals fish and occasionally swim. From here you can see both North and South coasts the walk on to explore more of the many footpaths and bridleways.
  • The Lodge is beaufitul, clean and has great views. The huge window fills the space with natural light and keeps it surprisingly warm! Caroline is very welcoming, we'd have felt very comfortable asking for help at any point if we'd needed it.

  • Lovely place to get away for a while. Caroline was lovely in assisting us from booking to checking out. I would certainly recommend this place and hopefully one day return for another stay.

  • Caroline’s place felt really special, we arrived a little early due to the rain and Caroline accommodated this with no notice. The alpacas made the place really unique, lovely that they are in the field next door to the property. And the hot tub was a big hit with everyone. And let’s not forget scones fresh from the oven with jam and lashings of clotted cream. Really convenient to get to lots of places as well. We stayed with our friends who have two little girls and an infant and there was plenty of room, two bathrooms definitely helps! I should also mention the property was cosier than I thought it would be even without the fire on. Great for a wet February half term!

    Gillian2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Caroline’s house was lovely and we felt very welcome. From the cream tea with homemade scones on arrival to the luxurious hot tub to the cute and funny alpacas in the back garden, we had a wonderful time. Thank you!

    Elspeth2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely lodge. Super hot tub. Lovely cream tea and the most comfy beds. A super place to stay.

    Deborah2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful lodge set in a picturesque location. Caroline is a wonderful host, answering questions extremely promptly pre-arrival , then offering her assistance on arrival with her knowledge of the local area. The lodge is extremely well appointed & the hot tub is toasty toasty! Highly recommended!

    Emma2019-11-02T00:00:00Z
  • Nicely located, tucked out of the way about so nice and peaceful but close enough to East South and West coasts. Didn't explore too much as weather was being very British but what we did see were some nice walks and welcoming pubs. Cosy to stay in thanks to the log burner too. A really nice way to escape for a days.

    Alex2019-10-31T00:00:00Z
  • From arrival to departure a very comfortable and enjoyable stay. Amazing cream tea supplied by the host enjoyed by the log burner whilst watching the llamas!

  • Michelle's cottage provided the perfect bolt hole for myself and my wife with everything considered, characterful and of the best quality. The bed and be linen were second to none and the quality of the kitchen equipment simply made me jealous. Michelle obviously cares about her guests as much as she obviously adores the cottage, with thoughtful touches and splashes of luxury and oodles of style. The stairs to the bedroom are very steep and you do need to use the rope hand rail but we soon got used to it and the extra care needed. The bathroom agin is uber stylish and the highest quality and the outdoor area, even though the weather didn't really lend itself to making full use of it, was charming. Mithian itself is lovely small hamlet with a decent country pub less than a minutes walk and St Agnes, just 2 miles away, is full of Cornish charm with easy access to the South West Coastal Path - just exceptional walking. Overall? And exceptional place to stay and well worthy of the accolades its reviews bestow.

    Paul2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful few days in Cornwall staying in this beautiful cottage. I couldn't recommend it more - wonderful relaxing break!

    Daniel2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • We had such a lovely time in a beautiful home and every detail was just so thought out. Really nice touches in terms of decorations and also a great use of such a small space too made our stay really comfortable. We had an awful weekend in terms of weather but the cottage was very cosy and we managed to spark up the fire and chilled out with Netflix on the smart tv which was a nice touch! Bed was super comfy and the robe and slippers again another nice touch! The host made us feel at home and was on hand at all times, making sure we had everything we needed. Garden was so pretty and quaint, would love to go back in summer when we could enjoy it! Will certainly be taking some of the ideas for design features back into my own home, and may even buy some knitting needles after being inspired by the ones in the cottage! Thank you, we had a lovely stay!

    Louise2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • We loved the Cottage. Warm and cosy and so easy to spend time in. Michelle goes the extra mile with the little details. Special section for our pooch with treats and welcome furry toy was a special touch. This is one Airbnb host who goes the extra mile. The village is very picturesque and the local (Miners arms) is what you would imagine a pub should be.

    Tim2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely stay in this little cottage :) the stairs are very steep just as a warning. Loved all the thoughtful touches!

    Sarah2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • We had the best time in this fantastic thatched cottage. The location is great, the property is beautiful and Michelle was all that we could have asked for as a host. If we get the chance, we will definitely be coming back!

    Jacob2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect little cottage jam packed with great modern amenities you don’t usually find in holiday rentals that make all the difference.

    Sarah2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • We had an amazing week over New Years in Michelle’s cottage. It had everything we needed and was perfectly situated to explore Cornwall. Would highly recommend staying

    Spend a relaxing break in this comfortable studio retreat on the north coast of Cornwall. High ceilings and sky lights make the cosy space feel bright and cheerful, with lots of natural light pouring in. Enjoy tea on the charming picnic table out front and enjoy the quiet location with only the sound of ducks and wildlife to disturb you!
    This newly renovated building was previously used as a design studio by the owners and provides light and airy self contained accommodation with separate kitchen/dining area, a double bedroom and a bathroom with shower. The studio is situated in the grounds of the owners property and offers an extremely quiet location with only the sound of ducks and wildlife to disturb you!

The traditional 17th century Bolingey Inn, is only a 3 minute walk away and serves wonderful food, drink and local ales. The vibrant Cathedral City of Truro with its many bars and restaurants, cinema, theatre and rail station is only 9 miles away and the airport at Newquay is also close by.
  • So peaceful and quiet. Just what I needed! Charming place that had everything I hoped for. Will not hesitate to book again.

  • Immaculate and stylish property, in a great location, ideal for exploring Cornwall.

    Kelly2019-09-19T00:00:00Z
  • We had a fantastic stay at this lovely studio, great location (walking distance to Perranporth beach) and a wonderful host! Definitely recommend!

    Brendan2019-09-14T00:00:00Z
  • What a wonderful find! A fabulous, bright, clean, comfy and cosy studio in a great location for exploring Cornwall. Lovely hosts and lots of thoughtful touches. I’d love to come back. Highly recommended.

    Maria2019-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • I think this may well be the best example of Air B&B we’ve experienced. We loved the studio from the moment we arrived. It may be small but it’s perfectly formed, the space is used very cleverly and it felt perfectly spacious for us - a couple and our baby. It was spotlessly clean and Melinda had clearly put lots of thought into making sure the space is well appointed with everything you might need, with quality furniture and fittings and some lovely extra touches too. The location is beautiful, quiet and within easy reach of many of Cornwall’s beautiful towns and beaches, it’s an ideal spot to explore from. Melinda was very welcoming from the first time we talked and she and her husband were very friendly in person. I hope we are able to return one day and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.

    Clare2019-09-05T00:00:00Z
  • The studio is beautifully presented, spotlessly clean , bright and fittings are all to a high standard. We were delighted to have found it. Thank you Melinda!

    Linda2019-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • What a fantastic and beautiful place to say. The studio was beautiful and the hosts were amazing. The studio is so nicely laid out, full of light, and clean. It also had just about anything you could ever want of need while staying somewhere other than your own home. The location is perfect as well and wonderfully quiet, with a lovely pub just a short walk away. Our hosts went above and beyond for our little one, and made sure his stay (as well as ours) was comfortable and fun.

    Shea2019-08-29T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage is a very stylish, homey place to stay. The host was great and made sure we had everything we needed. Loved the attention to details (beers in the fridge, heated mattress pad, etc.). The kitchen is great, but we had problems with warming up a pizza as the smoke detector is right above and it started beeping every time we'd open the oven. Give my boyfriend quite a scare. So maybe eat out instead, there are some restaurants nearby! Highly recommend the place!

    Sloe Barn is a 200 year old rustic, open plan, top floor only, basic barn conversion in the heart of the wild and stunning North Cornish coast. 1.5 miles from Porthtowan beach, it's set within a working family home and smallholding with log burner, sofas and king size bed.
    Sloe Barn is an ancient and rustic barn, the top half of which is partially converted into a basic, large, open plan room with log burner and slate hearth in one corner surrounded by 2 snuggly sofas. You will find a fridge, kettle and toaster (no kitchen/cooking facilities) and large pine farmhouse table, a comfy king size bed with feather and down duvet/pillows and a basic en-suite shower room with electric shower, loo and hand basin. The basin currently has only cold water but there is hot water from the electric shower permanently. (plans to put in a hot water tap soon!) The walls are traditional bare Cornish granite. The barns is double glazed and its sole heating is with the 9kw log burner but there is an oil fired radiator should you get chilly. Towels, breakfast of granola/fruit/bread for toasting, tea/coffee making facilities and log burner starter kit all provided along with access to wifi. You are more than welcome to have a glass of wine in the garden/field of an evening if you so choose but we prefer it to be mainly a place for you to spend the night as this part of Cornwall has so much to offer during the day, but all within reason of course - you are more than welcome to eat breakfast in one of the many nooks and crannies of the various gardens! The views from the top of the barn steps over the valley and fields with grazing animals are truly open and fabulous, as is the sunset. The space downstairs is simply storage for the clutter of home life and not accessible to guests. Upstairs in the barn is normally used as hubby's office space/a bit of storage when not being stayed in - rustic and basic it may be, but a lovely space it certainly is - we hope you'll agree!
    We are in the middle of nowhere - peaceful, secluded but utterly accessible to most of what Cornwall has to offer. 3 mins drive from Porthtowan beach, 10 mins from St Agnes (if that), close enough to get to the A30 fast but without the drone. Skinners Bottom is a hamlet in the middle of a small triangle of three villages - all with shops, pubs and post office facilities! An amazing farm shop/bakers/butchery school is just a 2 mins drive away with some say the best Cornish pasties and selection of local produce this part of Cornwall has to offer! The wild north Cornish coast awaits your hiking shoes/surfboards/bikes for adventures a'plenty!
  • Lovely location, close to the coast and very much in the country.

    Kristin2020-03-14T00:00:00Z

  • We had the most relaxing time at Bee’s barn. Just what we needed. The barn was amazing, with a bed you could just sleep all day and night in 😍, with the log fire going in the corner of the room . There was freshly home made bread, what was amazing. We will be back for our 3rd time soon . 😁😉

    Christopher2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing space and host. Quick to reply to messages and felt like I could contact freely with any questions. Beautiful space with great-character and loads of homely charm and touches. Spotlessly clean and would happily return!

    Alice2019-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • A great place to get away from it all, and just chill.

    Craig2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • The space is the perfect mix of rustic and modern; its open plan meets cosy. The fire is so relaxing to unwind by, the bed is wonderful, and the views are spectacular of the surrounding countryside. A five minute drive from St Agnes was great for getting a coastal walk or maybe getting into the water too! The hosts were lovely. We felt catered for, yet without intrusion. I truly reccommend Sloe Barn and Bee and Tom as hosts

If you want to go a little bit off grid and want something a bit quirky then this is a great choice. Porthtowan also offers a great beach and good food and drinking options. The locals are all lovely.

    Stuart2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • A cosy , Cornish cabin ,quirky with amazing view of the sea

    Natalie2020-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • Had a wonderful time in Porthtowan. Anna was a very supportive host, easy to communicate with and very responsive. The Chalet was perfect for a quiet weekend away; homely comforts and stunning views of the bay. Local facilities are within a very short walking distance. A really enjoyable weekend was had.

    Sharon2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • An absolutely spectacular property in a fantastic location. Anna was a great host, responsive and welcoming. We could not have asked for anymore.

    Joseph2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • A total gem. a fantastic view and great hosts! Excellent decking area, I envy their amazing garden clinging to the hill. Bring a torch if you get there after dark, and be aware of some very slippery areas on the steps leading up, especially in wet weather. Might be difficult for some, but we found it exciting! Facilities spot on. We found it cozy on a stormy October night, the heater fully adequate. There was fresh milk in the fridge. A great stopover before using Newquay airport the next day. Much more fun than a Premier Inn!!

    Emma2019-10-12T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic chalet set in the porthtowan hillside, with spectacular views for breakfast or sunset. The property is every bit as good as it looks on air bnb, if not better, very clean, very well kept and more than you could want for a weekend away. Area is great fun aswell with easy access to shops, surf hire within a few minutes walk, and a lovely meal is to be had at the Unicorn gastro pub. This area and indeed this chalet is a must visit!

    Ben2019-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • I had a lovely stay here, everything was just as I expected it to be. Lovely recommendations for things to do around Porthtowan for those not familiar with the surroundings. Anna was very friendly on the few occasions I bumped into her. Would stay again if was back in the area (however I'd need to work on my fitness for all the steps a second time around haha )

    Caroline2019-09-16T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely stay at Anna's place. The location and accomodation where perfect. Had dinner at the blue bar and breakfast at the beach cafe, both where great.

  • Such a cute little chalet, with modern interior. We spent Christmas in the chalet and it was a perfect getaway destination. We loved having the log burner - it made the place even more cosy and warm. We had everything we needed to make Christmas dinner, enough pots and pans etc. They mince pies were a lovely touch, although admittedly, neither of us like them - really appreciated though. The Christmas tree was also a lovely touch and completely unexpected! Fantastic quiet area, amazing beach and a short drive to most places. Would definitely like to visit again sometime in the future :)

    Melissa2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful few nights at ‘Shilly Shally’. The house was exactly the cozy retreat we needed from some blustery November weather and was the perfect base for a few days exploring the beautiful coastline. The house is small but perfectly formed with everything you could need and sparklingly clean. The cream tea was a lovely touch and much appreciated.

    Emily2019-11-07T00:00:00Z
  • This place is full of character! A great location right by the beach. I loved being able to wake up and go for a long walk along the beach the curl up in front of the fire to warm up, would love to return we had a great couple of days!

    Georgia2019-10-31T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our few days staying at Annie’s ! Fab location near the beach and coastal paths. In a horseshoe shaped cul de sac with small dwellings, I really liked that... to see the comings and goings of the friendly neighbours. Slept so well, perfect for two plus our dog. Thank you, hope to be back before long.

    Maria2019-10-16T00:00:00Z

    Ocean Breeze is a lovely apartment overlooking the beach at Porthtowan on the north coast of Cornwall, deep in the heart of Poldark country! 2 bedrooms , sleeps 5 ( 2 doubles with a single bunk bed above the double in the second bedroom)
    This is our holiday apartment which is fully furnished with everything you'd need for a perfect stay by the sea. We love staying there and so do our family and friends and when we are not staying there we'd love to make it available to the Airbnb community. Wake up in the mezzanine bedroom ( accessed via a spiral staircase) to the sound of the sea. The apartment is in a row of 20 , built behind but above several businesses such as a café and beach bar (Blue Bar) . Ocean Breeze is immediately behind/above the Blue Bar. With this in mind, when using the balcony, you may overhear the staff of the Blue Bar going about their daily duties with associated ' banter'! Also , the delicious aromas that waft up from the Blue Bar's kitchen will be apparent..
    Porthtowan is a sea side village on the North Cornish coast. Amazing beach, great surf, stunning walks and breathtaking sunsets. The apartment is close to the famous Blue Bar where you can eat delicious food and enjoy a drink .

  • We had a great time staying at Mike's place! Even better than expected. We felt like we were in a cute little cabin, all warm inside whilst it was stormy and cold outside. The apartment is such a great use of space, there were 5 of us and a dog and we had plenty of room due to the way it's laid out. The view is outstanding from the balcony -location is amazing!! Mike was very good at communicating with us via the Airbnb app too. Would definitely recommend! And would love to stay again. Laura

  • Great apartment in an ideal spot not 2 minutes walk from the beach. Apartment is perfect for family, 2 adults, 14 yr old and 11 yr old had plenty of room. Parking is fine, outdoor area great for bbq/drying wetsuits/chilling in the evening. Porthtowan is lovely. Try the Blue Bar, food and beer was excellent. Family friendly too. Moo maid of Zennor ice creams very nice and a nice little beach shop for nick nacks. Local shop was pretty good. Will is a great host with excellent communications throughout.

    Tony2019-04-22T00:00:00Z
  • This is a bright clean apartment that is a stones throw from the beach and has lovely sea views. It has decent WiFi and the TV has Netflix and Amazon Prime which was great to occupy the kids during downtime. Will has thought of everything regarding facilities you may need from an iron, clothes horse and stocked teabags, milk and coffee on arrival. There are even some outdoor games provided though unfortunately no board games so next time will bring some to play with the children however this is a small negative that would have been a nice addition and did not impact on my positive experience at Just Beachy. Will book again soon.

  • Their place is so nice! Great location, and incredibly helpful hosts. When we visited without a car, they gave us great information about local buses and walks nearby, and even gave us a lift to the bus stop on a Sunday. I would recommend their place to anyone wanting to stay in Cornwall. Thank you!

    Evan2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • Really nice place, perfect for a weekend away. Decent kitchen facilities, and very clean throughout. Short ten minute walk into the centre of Porthtowan. Bed was comfortable. Bus stop from Truro is right next to the property too (but note that buses do not run on a Sunday). Would recommend to other guests.

We know you can give only 5 stars but the breakfast will earn 10 stars homemade jam and joghurt wonderful fruits. Really great our belly was happy

  • Our stay at Tertias was fantastic. When we arrived we were greeted with chocolates, Prosecco and a personal note on our pillows wishing us a great stay. The property is perfectly situated a close 5min walk to the beach and local restaurants/pubs. The house itself was decorated beautifully in beach theme which suited the location to a tee. Finally, the breakfast was a great way to kick start our day of exploring, absolutely delish. Thank you so much Tertia.

    Brandon2019-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • Porthtowan is a lovely little seaside place with good waves, great walks and scenery, and a laid-back atmosphere. Tertia's house is not far from the sea, maybe 200 metres from the beach. Everything is 5*: the room, the breakfast, the house, the hospitality. On top of this, Tertia, Rowland, Buddy (the old and super-calm dog) and the kitchen budgie exude so much ease with themselves and each other and you as guests that we really felt at home there. Hoping to be back next year! Frank & Michelle

She has everything there you could need and those beds are literal heaven!

Today it's a beautiful retreat with a narrow harbour, secluded sandy beaches and a stream running to the sea on one side. It is ideal for swimming, surfing and windsailing in watched by the local Surf and Life Saving Club. Portreath offers the pleasures of sea and countryside with beautiful views, spectacular cliffs and walking trails. Illogan Woods is adjacent to Portreath with lovely streams and a circular walk leading to the 14th century church tower of Illogan. There is also Tehidy Country Park just outside of Portreath with its adjoining golf-course. It is a beautiful country park comprised of 250 acres of woodland, lakes, bridleways, cycling and nature trails. There are several ponds and a lake with swans and various kinds of waterfowl.Occupying a dramatic valley location with one of the most spectacular and beautiful beaches of the Atlantic Coast, Porthtowan has been drawing visitors for years to take advantage of its natural sun trap. A superb location for a holiday to Cornwall with a fine beach and close to good main roads means that you can easily explore the surrounding area on days that are not conducive to sitting on the beach.Porthtowan has one of Cornwall's finest surfing waves. Producing good waves at all states of the tide, the wave is particularly good in an easterly or south easterly when it really pumps with some lovely hollow barrels. It is not for the faint hearted and beginners should be careful. An excellent surf school operates from the beach. At low tide the beach stretches down to St Agnes Head and Chapel Porth Beach where you will find a lovely National Trust Cafe full of warming hot chocolate and fabulous views. From Porthtowan you are ideally located to reach the many beaches on the North Coast famous for attracting keen surfers and beginners alike.
  • What a beautiful place, the guys had obviously thought long and hard as we had everything we needed for a fun packed 4 days, the hot tub was the icing on the cake (cleanest one we have had use of).

    Louis2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time at ‘Snapper’ and it exceeded our expectations in every way. When we arrived the directions to the lodge were easy to follow and we were in the hot tub within a few minutes (great after the long drive). Accommodation was great. Spacious living / dining area and clean, well decorated bedrooms. Never been to Cornwall before and we all loved it. Lots to see and do, with the lodge a great base to return to each night for a glass of wine and to enjoy the fantastic view (sometimes from the hot tub). Would recommend highly and likely that we will return again next year. We loved it!

    Mike2019-07-14T00:00:00Z
  • Bungalow was spacious and well equipped. Location ideal - peaceful, safe for toddlers and only a 5 minute drive to Portreath with other popular destinations within easy reach. Jacuzzi was loved by all – especially the children. Easy check-in/out and good communications with host. Recommended and would happily stay here again if returning to the area.

    David2019-05-02T00:00:00Z

    Jonny2019-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • Book this place! We have just got back from our 6 person stay friends get away and I feel revived. Very relaxing with the use of the hot tub day or night (even in january) and rolling hill views. Beautiful and convenient location with a big tesco just up the road for shopping and a gorgeous woodland walk to the beach. The cottageitself is modern and stylish and had 6 of us living comfotably. Very pleased to have had such a wonderful time.

    Natasha2019-01-13T00:00:00Z

  • A great place with plenty of space and many cozy details. The house is equipped with literally everything you could think about. We are surfers, and we especially appreciated we could hang wetsuits outside, and then to dry them out inside in a special room with dehumidifier. We had a very comfortable and enjoyable stay.

    Alexandra2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely location, the home is even nicer in person! With everything you could possibly need for your stay. Really loved the folder of leaflets with places to explore/visit.

    Eric2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • Lana’s place is well located for being really close to the beach, shops and bars. It is spotlessly clean! We felt really well looked after. Check-in was easy with the key lockbox. The beds are really comfortable and the bed linen is good. The kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans, plates etc and easy to use. The house seems bigger than the photos and as four adults and a baby we had plenty of room! Lana provided a baby bath and high chair and she offered to provide a cot too but we brought our own. The internet is good and constant which is a plus - particularly as it’s in an area that has little phone reception (although phone reception seemed good on the beach if needed!). The blue bar and the unicorn were really close by and we had excellent meals in both. We highly recommend this place! Thank you Lana for a really great stay. For all you others: Stop looking and just book it!!!

    Porthtowan is a small seaside village on the north coast of Cornwall about ten miles from the county town of Truro. It has a large Atlantic facing beach which is very popular for surfing. Porthtowan is able to handle some of the largest swells on this stretch of the north coast and is mid-way between the two popular villages of St Agnes and Portreath which also have an established surfing community. Porthtowan has a number of pubs and bars catering to all requirements from the quiet country pub feel of the Victory Inn, to the surfer’s hang out Blue Bar via the family oriented Unicorn Inn. Each of the pubs serves food and the menus generally reflect the clientele. Slightly further afield you will find the village of St Agnes with its picturesque streets and stunning views of St Agnes (website hidden) Agnes has a pretty little beach called Trevaunance Cove which is sheltered and secure with lifeguards, beach shop and Schooner’s Bistro. Moving up from the beach you arrive at Peterville which is the location of both the WINE BAR and the excellent (and always booked so please book in advance of your arrival in Cornwall) “No.4 Peterville” (which is our favourite restaurant). Even further afield Cornwall has a magnificent selection of restaurants from Jamie Oliver’s “15″ at Watergate Bay to Rick Stein’s numerous establishments in Padstow.
  • Very comfortable, clean and well equipped house , perfect location for anyone thinking of The Arc of Attrition race and rambling in the area .

  • Amazing spacious place. Clean and full of light with a lovely garden. Less than 5min away from a beach. The house has everything you would need, even shower gel. We were extremely pleased with the way the house looked.

    Alex2019-08-02T00:00:00Z
  • This is a lovely 4 bedroom holiday home with 1 bathroom. It’s on the outskirts of the village Porthtowan which has a lovely beach with pay and display parking. It’s not possible to walk to the beach with kids as there is no pavement and it’s a busy, fast road. The home is shared with a tenant who stays in the annex, he keeps to himself although his windows overlook the back garden. The back garden is lovely and huge with a bbq and seating. The neighbours greet you and give you the key and a tour of the home. This was a lovely home which gave us a good base to stay in to explore Cornwall for 5 nights.

    Lesley2019-07-21T00:00:00Z

The name Porthtowan ‘means cove of sand dunes'. Popular with surfers and beach lovers alike, Porthtowan is a swell magnet and fun waves can be had throughout the year. With RNLI lifeguard cover from April – October and a surf school, Porthtowan is a perfect spot to catch an ocean roller or two. A quirky, secluded tidal pool can be found buried between the caves and gullies beneath the cliffs at the northern end of Porthtowan's beach.

Coast by Kayak Koru Kayaking operate out of Trevaunance Cove (St Agnes). When the conditions permit, they offer fully guided tours that explore secret beaches, along this dramatic, stretch of coast.
  • The Chalet was perfect for our autumn getaway despite the crazy weather! The place itself is lovely and clean with plenty of room for the two of us and would comfortably sleep at least another two in the upstairs room. The facilities were great, with everything we needed in the kitchen and overall. The location is also perfect for trips to the rest of Cornwall with St Ives and Perranporth nearby. Porthtowan itself was lovely with the little beach and a great cliffside walk though perhaps go on a calmer day than we did to avoid being blown everywhere! Special mention to the Unicorn pub/restaurant too where all the staff were great! Would definitely look at booking again on a future trip to Cornwall

    Luke2019-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • Great value, just minutes walk from fab bit of coast. Super clean!

  • My family and I had an amazing holiday at the chalet. The chalet is lovely, clean, stylish and has everything you need for a great stay. Sasha is a great host, provides excellent info and quick responses. Sasha was always available if needed. Porthtowan is a lovely town with a nice beach and amenities like shop, cafe, bar, playground. We would recommend Sasha and the chalet and would definitely go again.

    Jennifer2019-12-24T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay at Dominique's house. It was a very good size for three couples, with a cozy fireplace and a sunroom for enjoying the view. It's close to the footpath down to Porthtowan or to the coastal trail along the cliffs. The kitchen was large and very well appointed, with local Cornwall tea, jam, and biscuits provided by our host. Dominique was very communicative and helpful every step of the way. Highly recommended!

    Kelsey2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay at Dominique's. We were a group of 8, including a 3 month old, and it was perfect for what we were after. Spacious with a great conservatory area and large garden for a bbq whilst watching the sunset. A short walking distance to the beach where we booked in for a surf lesson with Dominique herself - would highly recommend doing this! All the bedrooms in the house were lovely with very comfy beds, and the kitchen was really well equipped which was great! Overall a wonderful few days!

    Kate2019-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • This is our second time at this house, so we knew what we were walking into. Dominique is really helpful and quick to respond to any questions. The house is in a great location, with everything needed to accommodate the 6 of us (2 adults, 4 children), offering a lovely conservatory, too, for escaping to read ones book, and enjoy the sound of the sea. Just a minutes (or so) walk to the coastal path, offering amazing views over the sea and sunsets. The beach is also in walking distance (though a bit of an up hill stroll back), offering great surfing and body boarding (you can also drive down and park). And lastly, the house is in walking distance to great pubs/cafes for lunch/dinner too. We're already looking at planning our return visit once more.

    Neil2019-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • A perfect setting and wonderful house! Couldn’t have been better! Lovely owner too, we will be coming back .

    Louise2019-05-20T00:00:00Z

Featured on programmes like "Grand Designs" and "Homes by the Sea" it provides immediate access to the beach for amazing walks and awesome surf. It is comfortable for 6 (can take 8 with a sofa bed), with modern kitchen, central heating, wood-fired stove and outdoor pizza oven. A perfect base for families and groups in the heart of Cornwall. Also on Owners Direct (ref. 8125960) for bookings more than 3 months out.
    The Engine House in Porthtowan is a completely unique part of Cornwall's heritage and lifestyle. Built at the height of the Cornish mining boom, it is a Grade II Listed beachside property with infinite character, comfort and convenience. The reverse level layout gives stunning beach views from the open-plan first and top floor, and the wrap-around first-floor level deck with pizza oven, barbecue and outdoor furniture make for a perfect setting. In the heart of Poldark country, Porthtowan is located between Illogan and St. Agnes (known as St. Annes in the book and TV series) with spectacular countryside walks in both directions along the South West Coastal Path. Featured in Charlie Luxton's C4 Programme "Homes by the Sea" in September 2015 (http://www.channel4.com/programmes/homes-by-the-sea/on-demand), The Engine House is a genuine part of Cornwall's heritage. Charlie says in the show "I could live here - I could definitely live here"!.

Kevin Mcleod briefly featured The Engine House in Grand Designs (Series 7, episode 18 - http://www.channel4.com/programmes/grand-designs/on-demand/46761-018), where he said "The Engine House at Porthtowan is one of the more successful conversions I have seen. It is unconventional."...."It proves that it is possible to make a beautiful home from these industrial dinosaurs".
    Apart from staying in a true part of Cornwall's heritage, Porthtowan is a seaside village with everything you might want from a Cornish holiday - a great Blue-Flag sandy beach, amazing surf with RNLI Lifeguards, long walks along the Coastal Path to the Chapel Porth National Trust Cafe, great food and atmosphere at the renowned Blue Bar (www.blue-bar.co.uk) and other village amenities including a pub, cafe, fish and chips, post office and general store.

  • Wow! What a place. Steeped in history this engine house was a perfect stay right on the beach for some R&R. Split On 3 levels This very spacious conversion offers ample living space and amenities for a wonderful stay. The top floor living room has a hammock with wonderful views out to sea and a lovely lounge area with tv. The middle floor has a lovey log fire place and more huge windows with sea views. The kitchen is fully equipped with every you would need. The lower floor has 3 bedrooms with very comfort beds and a bathroom. There is also a wet room and laundry facilities on the mid level. The surrounding area has some great walks and 2 very good bars. A very enjoyable Break and a lovely home. Thankyou Robert and Sam

    Simon2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • The most fantastic house in an amazing location. The perfect relaxing Winter retreat and ideal for dog owners who want to enjoy a break with their pets. The beach is on your doorstep and open to dogs during the Winter months with miles of headland walks. Cosy, comfortable with a definite laid back vibe. Robert was super quick to respond to our query regarding the landline phone which was missing its handset and ordered a replacement which came the next day.

    Annie2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome location, Rob always responded straight away. This place has s very characteristic.

    James2019-11-18T00:00:00Z
  • Stylish, cosy and charming - lots of clean towels and hot water for post beach chilling. Great walks - would bring a car next time to expand beyond the surfing community. Lovely stay for whole family. Robert very helpful

    Benedick2019-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • Had an amazing stay at the Engine house. It is a beautiful house, right by the beach. We could see the sun setting from the house. We used the wood fire pizza oven to make pizza on our first night, they were best pizzas. Robert gave us lots of tips for our stay, we went to the Beach Cafe for an amazing breakfast. The neighbour's were lovely and also gave us some tips.

    Neena2019-05-13T00:00:00Z
  • Really quirky property in a fantastic location - it couldn't be closer to the beach, great for a family holiday in a wonderful village. Our family of 5 had plenty of room and we made good use of all amenities, inc Netflix, fast wifi, pizza oven, surfing. Robert was super-quick getting back on any questions we had. Altogether a v happy and positive experience!

    Andrew2018-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • We’ve just returned from our lovely family holiday at the Engine House. The location of the house is just fabulous! The house itself is superb. Even with some wet and windy days, we found there was still plenty to explore and enjoy in the local area. As far as hosts go, Robert and his wife Sam were amazing. If we needed to contact them, they were always a phone call away. They made us feel we could use the house as our home. Thank you so much!

    Kate2018-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • The best house on arguably the most beautiful beach in Cornwall. Million dollar views, a great kid’s playground next door, sand between your toes on the doorstep, a wood fired pizza oven... it’s utterly magical. Even the neighbours are great. Robert is a lovely and considerate host, we’ll be staying again and again if he’ll have us.

    Set within the grounds of the original Count House for the Basset mines (as featured on Poldark). Nestled on a world heritage site. North Coast beaches just 5 miles away. Cosy cottage in a tranquil location, overlooking Carn brea and views to the coast. Ideal as a base for exploring the rugged beauty of Cornwall whilst remaining a short drive away from the local town and shops.
    Little Basset is a cosy cottage which has its own fully equipped kitchen, bedroom with its own closet space, and bathroom in which there is a shower.
    Little Basset is located on private grounds on the outskirts of Carnkie. Carnkie is a peaceful, friendly village in the heart of the old mining community. There is a pub a half a mile walk away and taxis are readily available, it is also a walking distance from Carn Brea castle which is a Jordanian restaurant; the castle itself can be traced back to 1379. The main thing Carnkie has to offer is the beautiful scenery and friendly atmosphere!
  • This the second time we have stayed. We live it, very quiet ideal to unwind at Recommend

    Matt And Kate2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely escape in rural Cornwall, warm and cosy and perfect to get away from it all.

    Ceri2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Secluded, bijou, everything one needs. Just don't go there if require WiFi/Internet etc. Just the space to really relax away from it all. Good walks all around & definitely no interference from host unless required. A real place to just unwind..

    Dave2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Definitely recommend Alisa’s place. Very quite and relaxing, very well equipped for its size. Would stay again, we loved it.

    Matt And Kate2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • This is a very cute, simple little cottage in a pretty amazing area. You can walk all the way up Carn Brea from the doorstep :) Not too easy to find (it is not the Carnkie in Helston!) but Alisa was very helpful with directions and quick to respond. Very quiet and solitary - a great little escape!

    Nicola2019-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • This is a very sweet, warm and cosy nest. It provides all that is needed and it is in a charming location among ruins of the mining past of the area. The coast is at about 20-30 minutes driving and it is stunning, also featuring St Ives. We had a great week and also enjoyed the amazing hospitality and kindness of Ailsa always ready to help and support us.

    Massimo2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • Great place, highly recommended.

    Stuart2019-10-31T00:00:00Z

    Located on a private lane with private parking and access through a tiered garden, The Pound is a two bedroom (connected rooms) L-shaped flat. The front door leads into the lounge with bedrooms to the right. From the left a step takes you into the kitchen with the bathroom on the left.
    ‘The Pound’ is a quirky two bedroom (connecting rooms) log cabin flat. It also has a lounge, kitchen and bathroom and is accessed via a zig zag path leading up from a designated parking area. When we bought the house 6 years ago, The Pound was a dog grooming parlour, hence the name, which was in a very bad state. We renovated it for two of our sons to live in and a few years on, and both sons having moved out, it is now surplus to our requirements, so have decided to rent it out for you to stay in to enjoy the Cornish experience. We have tried to think of everything you would need during your stay to make it a home from home holiday. At the front of the property there is a storage box which houses recycling bags and where your bagged rubbish can be stored for collection on a Thursday evening. As we are close to the A30, which can be seen from the front of the property, there is traffic noise outside but not within the accommodation.

The huge hexagonal column was erected in 1836 in memory of Francis Bassett, Lord de Dunstaville.

Now managed as a Country Park, Tehidy has over 9 miles (14.5km) of paths and 250 acres of peaceful woods and lakes to explore, together with a café and a picnic area. Francis Bassett was however the first to be elevated to the nobility due to his efforts to raise an army of miners to defend the port of Plymouth from the combined Spanish and French fleets. Another legacy of the Bassett family is Carn Brea Castle. It is suggested that it started out as an Elizabethan hunting lodge, was a Victorian folly and is now a restaurant. Carn Brea also has associations with the legendary giants of Cornwall.

Lovely comfy beds and great bathrooms with a walk in shower. The deck would be amazing in nice weather with fabulous views. Would love to return.

  • This house is in a great location overlooking the bay, the deck is lovely to sit out on and the glass blocks the wind. Just above the house is a viewpoint where you can catch the sunset. Great views from the bedrooms, very comfy beds. Nice to cook in the kitchen and lots of space to sit and enjoy a meal. Love having a boot room (utility room) at the back. We used this entrance to get coats and boots off before going into the cosy house.
