Local Area

Porthcothan Bay is another of those locations which is just waiting to be discovered and explored. Within easy reach of Padstow and St Merryn, and a short drive up the coast road from Newquay and Mawgan Porth, the sheltered, sandy bay at Porthcothan is another of the many family-friendly beaches that can be enjoyed along this part of the coastline. It is also dog-friendly all year round, and boasts picturesque cliff walks and outstanding scenery. The area around Porthcothan is also home to a wide variety of sea birds, and the cliffs are often grazed by ponies and sheep, which helps with conservation of local plant life. The nearby village of St Merryn and the town of Padstow offer an excellent choice of pubs and restaurants, in addition to the local pub, the Tredrea Inn, which hosts live bands and also has a beer garden where you can sip your drink while admiring the superb views over the bay. Porthcothan Bay is also close to the village of St Eval, where anyone, whatever your age, can have loads of fun on the Karting Circuit, and when you're done, you can visit nearby Kernow Chocolate where you will find a wide range of yummy chocolate treats!


Very good property!Mr Christopher Swarbrick - 17th September 2018
Great house, layout and location. Balcony at the rear is a great feature. Our second holiday with Cornish Horizons. Both properties have been excellent and the process seamless.Mr John Whitehouse - 28th August 2018
We had a very enjoyable stay and would recommend Jane Hatch - 7th August 2017
A lovely property with plenty of room for eight guestsMs S Double - 31st July 2017
We loved the house.. it was lovely to come back to everyday. Mrs Ellen Cryer - 24th July 2017
The property was a real winner with everyone. The personal touch we received from the local office could not of been better. The only issue we had was not being able to get a stair gate from the suggested hire companies however Argos came up with the goods so not really a bug issue. Top notch holiday property supplied by a first class company .. cheers Mr Paul Cornwell-Vernon - 21st June 2017
