The West Country region

Cornwall is well known for its warmer climate, beautiful scenery and beaches. There are plenty of options from surfing, walking, family attractions or just relaxing on the beach. Cornwall also has plenty of National Trust Sites to visit.

St Ives

Situated opposite St Ives Bay, Hayle is famed for its three miles of golden sands. The beach starts at the mouth of the estuary, follow the beach round and you come to Hayle Towans, this is sheltered and at nearly 2 miles long has plenty of space for all the family. Next is Gwithian, a popular surfing beach. Hayle sands ends at Godrevy Point where the lighthouse stands proud on an island out to sea. The point and car park are owned by the National Trust. This is the ideal base to see more of Cornwall or just to relax on the beach.

There are far too many attractions to mention but here are a few - The Flambards Experience, The Eden Project, Newquay Zoo, The National Seal Sanctuary, Land's End, Paradise park, The Cornish Cyder farm, Minack Theatre, Blue Reef Aquarium, Dairyland Farm World, The Tate St Ives, Tehidy Park, lots of National Trust sites including St Micheals Mount.

"WOW what a nice place"

What a nice place to stay , very well equipped a home away from home.We found it very clean and quiet which was nice. Dont buy the wifi as the signal is very weak and it's just not worth the money.Loved waking up in the morning to the bunnies running round outside.
Would stay again such a beautiful place.

"Stunning chalet in a stunning location"

We looked at many chalets at Rivier Towans and kept coming back to Porthia becuase of the fantastic decor. The furniture is top quality and bathrooms and kitchen are finished to a high standard. The showers were fantastic which was a treat after a cold surf! The weather was cold but the chalet was very warm and cosy.
Some may prefer a more traditional chalet but with children, modern comforts are a essential and this made the holiday very pleasant
Porthia is set back from the beach, situated near the entrance and we would have prefered to have been closer to the beach but it's literally a 5 minute walk and I'm sure the price would be alot more if it was closer and had a sea view. There is a childresn play area 2 minutes away.
You will not go wrong with this chalet, it has to be one of the best on the site and I would highly recommend it.
We'll be back next year!

"Book now - superb holiday home in stunningly beautiful location!"

We have rented this gorgeous chalet on several occasions over the last couple of years and cannot recommend it highly enough! It is immaculate and beautifully done out throughout. A very posh home from home, where everything you would want or need on a family holiday has been carefully considered.
Porthia is tucked away in a beautiful little spot 5 mins walk from the stunning St. Ives Bay where miles of sandy white beaches awaits. There are so many brilliant places to visit in the surrounding area including St. Ives, Newquay, St. Micheal's Mount and Land's End.
We are already booked up for next year and can't wait to go back!
