The Details

Guest Reviews

The property was immaculate inside with all the facilities we needed for a comfortable week away from home. It was a long journey down but the view from the balcony alone made it worth the drive. It also proved a fantastic option for our 15 month old who is not yet walking as she could get around without the worry of stairs. We absolutely loved being able to hear the ocean all the time and see it from every room. Porthtowan was a stunning Cornish village, with all essential amenities and amazing shellfish at The Unicorn On The Beach as well as good kids choices. There is a lovely ice cream place and a playground as well for the kids which our 6 year old loved. Didn't get a chance to check out the other eateries as we were very close to other places for day trips too. We were very sad to leave!
This was our second time here, and as previously we were not disappointed, beautiful apartment with stunning views. A bit cold inside on arrival this time (due to being empty during lockdown) but the following morning very warm. Having the surf room to rinse and dry my paddle board is another great touch. Will definitely stay again.
We stayed at 1 The Beach Porthtowan and it exceeded all our expectations - incredible views, location and so modern and clean. Really was a home from home with all the facilities you could dream of ! We can't wait to go back
We loved our stay in Porthtowan and thought that the accommodation was brilliantly positioned. The views from the windows truly fantastic. The 360 degree video we felt didn't do justice to this property as it was much bigger than expected. The kitchen facilities were first class, there was everything we needed and more. It is a property that we would definitely consider returning to.
