The best thing about:

Character and design in a tucked-away position just 60 metres from Porth Beach

The walk to the beach

60 metres away, around the corner.


Situated between Newquay and Watergate Bay on the rugged North Cornwall coast, Porth is a large, west-facing sandy beach, sheltered by headlands on either side and with a cafe, restaurant and pub right next to the beach.

When children draw a seaside scene, they draw Porth. Streams, rockpools and caves beg to be explored, whilst a sweep of beach provides ample terrain for sandcastle building and sand-fairy making. Families, adventurers and explorers of all ages will lose hour after happy hour here.

A narrow wooden footbridge leads to Porth Island, a headland full of history. Watch in awe at mid tide, particularly on windy days, as the blow hole shoots rainbow sprays of water. Embrace the theatre of Porth Island any time of day or all year round, just wrap up warm and bring a camera to capture dramatic sunrises and storms alike.

Back down on the beach, melted strawberry ice cream drips down sides of candy cones and sizzling tapas is served at Porth's beachside eateries. Once you've soaked up the Porth scene, try heading towards Newquay's bays, up the coast path to Whipsiderry and Watergate, or towards the rolling cliffs of Mawgan Porth and Bedruthan Steps.

  • Lovely property, fantastic location to the beach and within easy walking distance to Newquay.

  • Very very clean, fully working kitchen, outdoor eating area was brilliant for both dining and storage for surf boards etc, ideal location for local beach, coastal paths and allocated parking was a big plus.

  • Dove Cottage was beautiful, exceptionally clean and tidy, loads of space with everything we needed, its location was perfect, literally a 2 minute walk to the beach, great little parking space too which helped loads, will definitely reccomend Beach Retreats to friends and will be booking to come back again with you next year, very happy with the services and the property you provided to make our trip to Porth perfect.

  • We had such a wonderful holiday in Dove Cottage in Porth. We booked this cottage due to the price, availability and location and couldn't have been happier. The property was clean and tidy and decorated to a nice standard. We were a party of four adults, two small children and a small dog and it suited us perfectly.The restrictions meant we could only take our dog on the beach before 9am and after 7pm which actually worked well for us; we had coffee on the beach and while walking the dog in the morning and Prosecco on the beach while walking her in the evening! The cottage is literally less than 100 steps from the beach and is in a lovely small, quiet courtyard. Porth is surrounded by other beaches all of which were dog friendly that make it a great place for exploring; Newquay is 15 minutes away, Watergate Bay is 10 minutes away and our favourite Mawgan Porth is 15 minutes away. We usually like to go somewhere different each year but are seriously considering coming back to the same cottage again next year. We really had such a wonderful holiday

  • We all absolutely loved Dove cottage. Ideal location for the children to have fun on the beach and great for exploring the beautiful coastline.
    SS, August 2018

  • Great website and easy booking procedure. Accommodation exactly as described, right next to Porth beach and with excellent fittings in the cottage. Thoroughly recommended.
