Property code: OC-PC718A

Close to the coast path and with breathtaking ocean views, this contemporary four-bedroomed property offers a superior setting for a Cornish escape with family or friends. Two lounge areas mean there’s room for everyone to spend time exactly as they want, and there’s a garden plus private parking too.

A reverse-level layout makes the most of the position of this stylish property, while high-end features include oak flooring, underfloor heating, skilfully-positioned skylights and fully glazed doors for splendid views all day long. Step inside and on the ground floor there’s a lovely lounge with two sofas, a stone fireplace with a wood burner, and dual-aspect bi-fold doors onto the patio. For ultra-convenience, there’s a handy cloakroom, plus a splendid family bathroom with a free-standing roll-top bath as well as a separate shower. Choose from three ground-floor bedrooms: one has a king-size bed and en-suite shower room, and the other two have twin beds. A striking wooden staircase leads to the first floor, where an open-plan kitchen/dining/living room has all the home-from-home essentials and then some… stretch out on the sofa with a fresh cup of Nespresso coffee, share chef duties in the vast kitchen area and gather for good food and conversation at the dining table – however you spend your time here, you’ll have great views of the surrounding countryside. There’s also a stunning super-king-size bedroom on this level – enjoy a before-bed soak in the roll-top bath in your en-suite, and open the curtains for far-reaching ocean views the next morning. Patios accessed from each floor give you a choice of outdoor seating areas, while a lawn wraps around the property for additional play space. Fire up the BBQ for dinner; the outdoor shower is handy for washing the sand off toes.

Porthtowan has a golden sandy beach backed by large dunes and dramatic cliffs; the South West Coast Path skirts over the cliffs to St Agnes and Portreath (both 4 miles), delivering spectacular views for walkers. The village is at the heart of Cornwall’s Heritage Mining Area and mid-way between St Ives (19 miles) and Newquay(16 miles), making it a convenient base for further adventures.

The property was excellent in a truly stunning location. Like all popular rental properties - they eventually need a bit of a refurb / maintenance and arguably some better quality outdoor furniture - which is the only reason we did not score the property as 5s all round. We would definitely book this property again and if a bit of maintenance coulRead mored be achieved this property will remain a real gem. The accuracy of the description was fine and we were able to have an excellent holiday at Tonga Our views have been made to simply help inform you to ensure this property stays in tip top condition.
