Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Welcome to Porth and its golden sands! It is reputed to be the oldest part of Newquay and it is here that the original safe harbour was situated prior to the ‘new quay’ being constructed to the west in the 1400s. In contrast to nearby Newquay, Porth lies quietly at the gateway to a stretch of stunning coastline and provides an excellent location to explore what Cornwall has to offer. It also lies on the Cornwall Coastal Path if you should feel inclined to stretch your legs.
Completed in June 2009 this self catering beach front holiday apartment has an ocean-facing balcony and rear sun terrace, located truly within a stone's throw of Porth beach with stunning uninterrupted views across it to the headland and Atlantic Ocean beyond.
This luxury two bedroom beach-side apartment is designed and furnished to a high specification with open plan living space, oak flooring to the living areas and under floor heating throughout, three and two seater leather settees, Wi-fi available, 32” flat screen television, DVD player, radio and iPod dock. Fully folding doors open onto the ocean facing balcony with table and chairs. The dining area has a table and seating for 4 and there is a fully fitted kitchen with oven/hob, dishwasher, washer/dryer, fridge/freezer, microwave oven and granite worktops. In the master bedroom there is a king size bed, fitted wardrobes, bedside cabinets, wall mounted flat screen TV/DVD and iPod dock, and an en suite shower room with heated towel rail. The second bedroom has twin beds, fitted wardrobes, bedside cabinet and wall mounted flat screen TV/DVD. There is also a separate bathroom with a bath and shower over and heated towel rail.
There is lift access to all floors, a CCTV/telephone entry system and an outdoor courtyard shower together with a convenient store to leave your surf/body boards, wet suits, buckets and spades. There is an allocated parking space
Porth beach itself is a tranquil haven for those discerning visitors seeking a quiet family friendly beach with safe lifeguard supervised bathing (in season between 10am-6pm) and traditional beach-side enjoyment with rock pools to explore and streams to dam. For the more adventurous, only minutes away are the world renowned surfing beaches of Whipsiderry and Watergate Bay, internationally recognised for not only its extreme sports but also Jamie Oliver's Fifteen Restaurant. A short drive up the coast towards Padstow is the area patronised by celebrities who truly appreciate what a traditional Cornish seaside holiday can offer. For those who may choose to sample the Newquay experience, it is an approximate 25 minute stroll across the cliff path to the west.

To the west you have the famous Neolithic sites of Penwith and Lands End, to the east, Bodmin Moor and to the south, the world famous Eden Project. Cornwall is well known for its small coves, sandy beaches and picturesque fishing villages, which together with its traditional way of life make it a truly unique holiday venue.
Porth sits on the Cornwall Coastal Path for those who enjoy a stroll and for the more adventurous, you can select from the numerous activity based attractions locally; Lusty Glaze Adventure Centre is few minutes walk away with the Extreme Sports Academy at Watetgate Bay only a few minutes by car. Newquay Golf Club is nearby with Trevone and St Enodoc Golf Clubs less than a 30 minute drive. Or you can just relax on your private balcony and watch the world go by.
Cornwall has established itself as having some of the finest restaurants to be found anywhere in the world. Jamie Oliver's Fifteen Restaurant is only a few minutes drive away at Watergate Bay, whilst Rick Stein's Seafood Restaurant is only slightly further up the coast at Padstow. If you do not wish to drive, there are plenty of good places to eat within walking distance of the apartment, such as the Mermaid Inn, Estrella Morada Tapas Bar, Beaucliffes Restaurant and Glendorgal Hotel.
