The West Country / Cornwall region
Cornwall has long been one of the most popular UK holiday destinations. The climate is the mildest in the UK along with a fantastic combination of natural attractions and a renaissance in arts and food in Cornwall. The area has something for everyone with breathtaking beaches, magnificent countryside, charming local villages and world class centres of cuisine and art. Cornwall is also home to internationally renowned tourist attractions including the Eden Project.
The Porthtowan / Kingsley Cove area
Porthtowan is one of the UK's top surfing beaches, bordered by soft white sand and rolling dunes while there are a number of quality shops, cafes and bars. One of the most popular with both visitors and locals is the Blue Bar, situated just at the edge of the beach, where in the bar's chilled out surroundings, you can relax with a drink, some good food and watch the sunset over the ocean. A Lifeguard service operates daily from May to September.
The famous Cornwall coastal path runs right through Kingsley Cove, with some breathtaking walks right to the doorstep, and the beach and dunes of Porthtowan are just yards away.
Porthtowan is a perfect balance between activities to keep all entertained, while maintaining a charming 'small village' feel that some coastal village lose due to overcrowding.

Towan Cottage is a surprisingly spacious house, which has everything you need for a short stay & is good value for money. Great location within a short walk to the beach and an easy drive to some of Cornwall's best scenic spots.

Cheerful, clean, friendly house with lots of extras. Stunning beach 3 minutes walk. Pub and shop nearby. Great place for a family holiday. Surfing walking spectacular.

This is a very comfortable 3 story house only 1 minutes walk from the beach. The views from the middle and top floor are great, looking over the beach and to the sea where you can often see the surfers. For those interested in surfing, there are wetsuits and equipment at the house for use.
The house also has a good speed broadband connection, tv, free view via sky box and all necessary kitchen appliances and utensils. The log burner is also very cosy.
Our holiday was for 3 weeks over Christmas and we (family of 5) thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
The owner Andy was extremely helpful and also the housekeeper who dropped a change of bedding/linen when needed.
Will definitely recommend.
