The West Country region

Where is Cornwall?

Located in the far west of Great Britain on a peninsula tumbling into the vast Atlantic ocean, almost completely surrounded by the sea, a magnificent coastline wraps around Cornwall for almost 300 miles. Cornwall is also the location of mainland Great Britain's most southerly promontory, The Lizard, and one of the UK's most westerly points, Land's End, while a few miles off shore and even further west is an archipelago of tiny islands that make up the Isles of Scilly.

What's so special about it?

There are lots of things Cornwall is loved for; the dramatic coastline with its captivating fishing harbours; the spectacular beaches and the pounding surf that provide a natural playground for a variety of water sports; and who can forget famous Cornish pasties and luscious cream teas?

But there are also lots of things about Cornwall that may surprise you. For instance, the wilderness of captivating Bodmin Moor with its panorama of big skies, fascinating prehistoric remains, great walking trails and more than its fair share of local legends.

There's also the dynamic art scene found in mainly in West Cornwall, inspired by the naturally stunning landscape; and more recently a food scene to rival London and beyond; Cornwall now has a multitude of award-winning local food producers and stellar chefs putting the region well and truly on the gourmet map.

Cornwall also has a tremendous history based on its Celtic roots, its Celtic Cornish culture, the warmth and friendliness of the people and the Cornish language that can be seen in the village names.

And that's not all...

Take a trip around Cornwall and you'll discover a hugely diverse landscape. In the far west where the sea turns turquoise in the sun, the sand is white and the natural light is sometimes blindingly bright, the land is adorned with a legacy of Bronze age standing stones, huge granite burial chambers, Celtic crosses and holy wells.

In the old industrial heartland, the landscape, recently awarded World Heritage Site status, is dotted with the fascinating remnants of a triumphant mining past illustrating Cornwall's enormous contribution to the Industrial Revolution with engine houses, museums and miles of recreational trails.

Around the coastline Cornwall's maritime legacy is never far away where local fishermen land their daily catch of fresh seafood and tall ships, luggers and ketches unfurl their sails in the Cornish breeze.

The natural environment, recognised nationally across the twelve sections of the Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is accessed by the spectacular South West Coast Path providing walkers with miles of gentle strolls and challenging hikes.

To the north, a sweep of enormous golden sand bays stretches along the coastline often pummelled by giant Atlantic rollers. Long famed for its perfect surfing conditions, the coastline here is a hub for all kinds of extreme sports from coasteering to zapcat racing and scuba diving to rock climbing.

And in the wonderful south of Cornwall, fed by rivers from the high moorlands, leafy estuaries, fishing villages, beaches, harbours and beautiful gardens that flourish in Cornwall's mild climate


Porthtowan is in an area of outstanding natural beauty in West Cornwall. The beach is west-facing and backed by impressive cliffs. Its wave conditions make it a destination for surfers and families alike, life guarded and clean, it has been a Blue Flag beach since 2005.

Facilities include the popular and locally loved Blue Bar & Kitchen, cafes, beach shops, surf shops, water sports equipment hire, a children's play-park, a large public car park, disabled access, public toilets and doggie bins.

There are fabulous walks along the coastal path to Chapel Porth and St Agnes or Portreath which are open to dogs all year!

"Fabulous holiday cottage and location"

We stayed here with our 12 & 9 year old. A fantastic location - ten minutes to the beach (path stony but manageable in flip flops) with the Blue Bar serving great food. Ten minutes the other direction… More

"Comfortable home, Lovely Views, Beautiful Area"

I had a beautiful stay with my girlfriend, the local beach, restaurants and villages were exactly what we wanted for our romantic weekend getaway. I would definitely go back and I would definitely stay in the same property, all very comfortable, clean and well maintained.

Highly recommend - The Blue Bar just down the road is really nice for a drink and we had a fantastic meal at the Old School Bar and Kitchen nearby!.

"Nice house in a good location near the beach"

Recently refurbished, this house was in good condition with nearly everything a small family could need. Less than 10 minutes walk from Porthtowan beach (down a steep path - which is quite rough in places). Lovely beach with good waves and a few local shops/pubs.

Well located, with places like St Ives, Newquay, Marazion, Padstow, etc, all within 30 minutes drive.

"Wow what a view!"

This house has the best view looking out over the Porthtowan beach. The house is fully equiped and is just like home from home. The kitchen has everything you need and the beds are super comfy! A truely lovely homely house to come back to after a day on the beech or walking. Porthtowan is a lovely setting and the Blue Bar set on the beach is great if you just want a coffee or something a little stronger!!! The food served here is great quality, variety and value. All in all i would say a perfect place for a relaxing break away.
