The Cornwall region
Cornwall is a beautiful place and a variety of holiday styles can be thoroughly enjoyed here. Whether you prefer an active holiday where you can go surfing and enjoy other watersports, or you like to go walking and take in the beautiful sights on the County's many coastal paths, or you just prefer to take things easy and relax on a beach holiday – Porthtowan on the north coast of Cornwall is the ideal resort.
Porthtowan is ideally centrally located to visit so many Cornish attractions. Visit St Ives and the Tate Gallery, the world famous Eden Project, the Cornish Seal Sanctuary, the wonderful Minack Theatre, the Lost Gardens of Heligan and even the Cornish Gold Centre which is just up the road - the options are absolutely endless and you will find a detailed holiday pack provided at "The Palms" to help you to decide which of the many attractions you would like to visit.
Porthtowan is a very popular seaside resort, which has been awarded ‘Blue Flag’ status for its wonderful beach and is one of the reasons Porthtowan is known as one of the most popular holiday destinations in Cornwall. The latest list of Blue Flag beaches across the UK has just been issued and Porthtown is one of just 6 blue flag beaches in Cornwall. Porthtowan is rich in heritage and flanked by astonishing granite cliffs amidst a narrow winding valley. The Towan Roath engine house, an archetypal Cornish mine is located on top of the cliffs overlooking Porthtowan Beach.
The village itself has a full range of amenities - grocery shop, post office, surf hire shops, pub, cafe and of course the famous Blue Bar which is situated directly overlooking the beach and regularly hosts live acts (see the website for full details : www.blubar.co.uk). With the range of facilities on offer Porthtowan provides an attractive location for everyone.
The nearest clubs can be found in Redruth and Camborne, just a 10 minute drive away. The cathedral city of Truro is about 25 minutes away and boasts many lively bars and some great clubs, and Newquay is about 30 mins drive away. There is a bus-stop just across the road from the property and Redruth train station is only about 10 minutes away.
For dining out, as well as the pubs, the Boardroom is a very nice restaurant adjoining the Blue Bar, so again boasts a great location by the beach. A short ½ mile drive out of the village will take you to the Flaming Wok, a very good Chinese restaurant that regularly offers ‘all you can eat’ buffets!
The nearby village of Portreath is well known for its Mineral Tramroad, which now provides an excellent bicycle trail from the north coast at Portreath along to the south coast at Devoran and this can be joined not too far from the property, just off the Porthtowan-Portreath road, on the junction down from the Flaming Wok (if you need to hire bikes, visit The Bike Barn at Elm Farm on the road to Portreath).
The nearest golf course is at Radnor Golf & Ski Centre, a 5 minute drive away. Radnor has a fun indoor ski machine where instructors will teach you to ski from scratch or you can have lessons to brush up on your technique before your Winter holiday! There is also a golf course in the other direction at Tehidy, which is about 3 or 4 miles away. Tehidy Country Park is certainly worth a visit - it is the largest single area of woodland in West Cornwall - some 250 acres! It offers over 9 miles of footpaths and trails and also bridle tracks.

"Excellent place to stay. Could not fault it !"
Would definitely recommend the Palms. It is in an ideal position within a few minutes from the lovely Porthtowan beach. The property I found to be immaculate and nicely furnished. We had very good weather so it was nice to sit outside in the garden area and have a BBQ. There are different board games to play in the property if the weather is bad. The blue bar is just by the beach. Nice big bar with some evening entertainment. Meals served here are quite good though drinks are very pricey
