The Details

  • Location

    Where is it?

    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.

Guest Reviews

"Sea Wall cottage didn't disappoint. We know the area and had seen it previously. It's quirky which we like and was perfect for the two of us to enjoy an early in the year or even a later stay. Brilliant if the weather is good but so cosy to still make the most of the beach location when it takes a turn for the worse and you just want to be warm and watch it all going on. "
E Cunningham, May 2024
"Our 5th visit to this property, we love the views and proximity to the beach we can't wait to stay again. The best thing about Sea Wall Cottage are the views from every room. "

"We love the cottage and the location. The cottage has had a freshen up with new windows and the door in the little room, off the lounge, that gives you a panoramic view of Porth beach. Great for the dog and a excellent base to visit all our favourite places in Cornwall. Would highly recommend!"

L Watson, January 2024
"We had a lovely time at Sea Wall Cottage, Porth. The uninterrupted beach views from every room are amazing, the authentic furnishings and decor, warm and welcoming. We had some lovely clear days and loved watching the wild swimmers, walkers and dogs on the beach. We walked on Porth Island and the paths to nearby St Columb Minor and into Newquay. Porth is such a magic place for us as we spent so many happy childhood days here."

"Sea Wall Cottage in Porth is a location that I have aspired to stay in for many years. It is right on a beautiful beach with views of an ancient port and cliff castle. The accommodation has everything you could need to a high standard of comfort and the property manager provides anything that might be missing."
M Frost, December 2023
"What an absolute gem! A stunning location right on the beach - perfect for long walks on sunny days and weather watching from the conservatory on rainy days. Easy reach of Padstow and Newquay and lots of walking on the South Coastal paths. Fantastic Beach Hut Cafe at Watergate Bay for brunch or lunch. Thoroughly recommend this cottage it had everything we needed!"

"We know the property very well, it really is our home from home. We explore the beaches, caves and magical rock pools, chat with fellow dog owners and pick mussels for a fresh meal at least once a week. The panoramic views are amazing. It makes you feel like you are sitting in a beautiful painting!"

"Our favourite holiday home with amazing views. Will be back in 2023 when dates are available. "
J Cook, September 2021
"We absolutely loved this property. The views are superb and it was very cosy in December. The bed was very comfy, all the white bed linen and towels very clean. The kitchen is very well equipped. Being able to go walking on a beach outside your window was so great and we loved the walks up over the cove cliffs. This is a great quiet base for exploring Cornwall. We would definitely book this property again. "
P Andrews, December 2020
"We felt very lucky to be staying at Sea Wall Cottage - built into the sea wall you could not be any closer to the beach, and the property was so clean and well presented. We loved both Porth beach and Whipsiderry next door. Stunning sunsets too! Thank you Beach Retreats."
A Gulliver, August 2020
"Seawall cottage is a real home from home to us,with the added bonus of the beach as our garden. The property is warm and cosy and very clean. Ideal for families with young kids or couples. We actually take along our seventy nine year old mum who just loves to watch the people passing the time on the beach from the sun porch,which gives you a great panoramic view, while we can go off and take a cliff walk or explore the coast on foot without feeling guilty about leaving her. Last but not least it's great to take the dog, who can sniff around the secure courtyard, allowing you to relax and have a drink watching the sunset,or take long walks with you on the beach and meet other fury friends to play with. It's a ten out of ten for us. "
P Goodge, February 2020
