Luxury self-catering accommodation in Porthtowan

A charming village and beach in North Cornwall, speckled with surfers and flurries of wildflowers, Porthtowan is a former copper mining settlement that became something of an under-the-radar coastal hub.

In the village, thereís all the hallmarks of a quaint beach community: a village store, an ice-cream parlour, and a craft shop selling chandeliers and armchairs made from driftwood. Sleepy though it seems, a grassroots surfing movement and the presence of beach bars and pizzerias turn this genteel North Cornwall destination into the place to be for a quieter slice of the coast. There's majestic cliffs, caves that appear at low tide, and sand dunes where curious species beckon young marine explorers.

Sandwiched between artsy St Ives and the sprightly hub that is Perranporth, Porthtowan brings a sweet-natured tempo to the North Cornwall coast. Here, tranquility is the order of the beach day. With tidal reef breaks glinting on the horizon, a sandy-bottom landing spot for beginner wave-riders, and opportunities to kayak, paddle-board, and snorkel, this is a relatively little-known beach that packs a big punch. Plus, not too far away, thereís big hitters like The Eden Project and Landís End.
