Highlights

Walk to the beach

Simply stroll 600 metres (approx. 10 minutes) along a traffic-free footpath and cross the road.

Best thing about

So much space, inside and out, combined with the idyllic rural location just a few minutes walk from the beach make The Roundhouse blissfully relaxing.

The Details

Location

Where is it?

Porthcothan is one of Cornwall's secret bays, a deep inlet surrounded by rocky headlands with a big expanse of sand at low tide. This tiny coastal village has a lovely hidden quality; it has remained largely undeveloped and provides an 'away from it all' feel.

With just one pub and a small local shop, you'll find Porthcothan is quieter than many of the better-known beaches with a focus on playing on the sand and in the sea. This is the Cornish coast for purists, it's all about the gorgeous natural environment.

A short drive from Porthcothan takes you to Padstow, Watergate Bay or Newquay for shopping, family activities and all kinds of cafes, restaurants and pubs.

Guest Reviews

The Roundhouse is in a good location, close to the beach and a short drive from the main towns like Newquay and Padstow. The property is great for a family with pets as well.
Fabulous, private, family house with a lovely walk to the beach.
We had a wonderful stay, the house is furnished to a great standard with amazing views and features such as the firepit. The walk to the beach was safe and enjoyable. A great place to stay.
We have been staying at the Roundhouse since 2001 and we have all had a great holiday. The property is excellent. We have no complaints and there have been many improvements in recent years.
