A mile inland from Porthtowan beach and coastal footpath, a semi-detached cottage with origins in the 17th cent., with neat garden (picnic table) and patio at the back. Keeping it company are a cluster of ancient cottages, a few modern houses, and a good food pub (250 yards). There are a number of footpaths fanning out from the immediate area connecting with the coastal path offering stunning walks to St Agnes in one direction and Porthtowan village in the other.

Door to sunroom through to back lobby (washing machine); kitchen (fridge-freezer, microwave) fitted with hand-crafted Victorian pine cabinets, slate worktop and butler sink; 2 steps down to living room with open fire, TV/DVD, laminate flooring (rugs). Ground-floor bathroom (suite plus bath-shower). Wooden stairs from the kitchen (mind head) make a sharp turn and become steep up to three bedrooms – a double and a single (limited clothes-hanging space) with lovely old floorboards (rugs), both with doors leading immediately from the top step (care needed); also a twin room accessed via a dressing-room-cum-play den with toy basket. Friendly owner lives 50 yards away. A quirky, homely cottage (not suitable for anyone with mobility problems).

The Cornwall region

The Newquay coast: from the Hayle estuary near St Ives and Gwithian Towans to the Trevose peninsula stretch, almost continuously, superb sand/surf beaches. Newquay – on the railway and with airport (flights from London and a number of regional airports and flights to the Scilly Isles) – is the surfing capital, full of amusements, arcades, young people, pubs and 'life', short on some other things, but pretty harbour and what beaches (Fistral, Tolcarne)! Watergate Bay (just up the coast road from Newquay), home to the Extreme Academy, is the place to go if you're feeling adventurous - try surfing, kitesurfing, waveskiing or stand-up paddleboarding. If you're not an adrenaline junkie, it's also a good spot for the gourmet; Jamie Oliver has opened a restaurant, 'Fifteen', there. St Agnes, a little ex-tin-mining town, has preserved itself remarkably (small proper shops) and attractively. Bedruthan Steps (cliff-high rocks tower out of the beach) is one of the great coast sights (and low-tide walks). Easy drive to The Eden Project (see South Cornwall).


Porthtowan: fine big sand/surf beach between high cliffs in front of mainly modern village (pub, friendly tearoom, two beach bars) at the end of a valley. St Agnes, about 3 miles. Truro (cathedral city), about 10 miles. St Ives, about 15 miles.
