Sun View is a large family sized property that offers spectacular sea views across St Ives. Situated in an enviable elevated position on the North Cornwall coast, the property provides bright open plan living, with a sunny conservatory and spacious garden making it ideal for entertaining family and friends. 

If you manage to entice yourself away from the view, head out onto the coastal path where you can walk north towards St Agnes or south towards Portreath. Stop for lunch at the trendy Blue Bar on the beach at Porthtowan, just a short walk from the property. This stretch of coastline is famous for its surfing, long sandy beaches, the coast to coast cycle trail and the mining heritage with former engine houses and mine stacks dotted around the landscape. Trying surfing for the first time? The owner of Sun View runs the surf school in Porthtowan - A great activity for the whole family to enjoy. As a Cornish Horizons guest, you'll receive a special discounted rate, but be sure to book ahead.

Local Area

Located within a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Porthtowan is probably best known for its Blue Flag award winning, golden sandy beach (lifeguarded in summer) backed by large dunes and dramatic cliffs. The coastal footpath skirts over the cliffs to St Agnes and Portreath with spectacular views across the sea. 

This small, seaside village is situated right in the heart of Cornwall's Heritage Mining Area and ideally located mid-way between St Ives and Newquay, making it a convenient base for exploring all which Cornwall has to offer.

The facilities within the village itself include cafes, beach/ surf shops, water sports equipment hire, a children's play park, large public car park and other local amenities. 

Please note a seasonal dog ban applies on Porthtowan beach from Easter to end of September.
