The Details

  • Location

    Where is it?

    Iona is a newly converted contemporary home, down a quiet country road, with the golden sands of Porthcothan reachable in just over a 5 minute walk. On route you will pass fields of wildflowers which line the coastal path down towards the cove. 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.

    There are eleven beaches all within a 5-20 minute drive of Porthcothan. You'll find Porthcothan beach is quieter than many of the better-known beaches with a focus on playing on the sand and in the sea. Around the corner is the more popular Treyarnon Bay, a beautiful golden sanded beach with a coast path leading to panoramic views over Constantine Bay.

    Just a short drive from Porthcothan is Padstow with its picturesque harbour and Rick Steins Seafood Restaurant. Watergate Bay and its array of restaurants are just 15 minutes away by car and Newquay a little further, with great shopping, beach activities and all kinds of cafes, pubs and restaurants.

Guest Reviews

"Fantastic property, very comfortable and beautifully decorated and furnished. Fantastic location."
S Vout, October 2023
"A superb house with excellent facilities, a fantastic position and lovely views. Perfect for a family gathering."
S Feaver, September 2023
"The house is beautiful and was perfect. Clean and really well kitted out. The spaces are ideal for a family - with open plan living but also the ability to separate. The bedrooms and bathroom configuration allowed everyone to have their own area."
J.Von Klonowski, August 2023
"Beautiful house, it had everything we needed and more. Fantastic location, close to Beach and the costal path. Highly recommend."
Kirk, September 2022
"The house was excellent for us as a family and the location was perfect. We can't wait to come back for a future stay."
Robertson, June 2022
"Iona is a fantastic house to stay in and is exactly as the photos and description. It had everything we needed and is a beautiful house. Was wonderful to be able to walk from the back gate down to the beach and the coastal walks, which were just stunning ! Well located to travel around Cornwall, including Padstow and St Ives. We had 6 adults and 2 dogs in our party and we all absolutely loved our stay at Iona and didn't want to leave."
L Fairclough, September 2021
"We had an amazing week staying at Iona. A beautifully renovated property. So well laid out and the design and furnishings of the interior made it such a relaxed and beautiful space to spend time in. The location on the coastal path and the incredible views literally just outside the front door made it all just perfect. "
A Parkin, May 2021
"We had such a lovely time at Iona. The home is absolutely beautiful and the location is amazing. It was the perfect place for our family to get away and enjoy the sea and scenery. We will definitely be back. Iona is perfection! "
S Sparks, April 2021
"Fantastic property with great layout, in fabulous location. Elevated position with picturesque countryside views, along with fleeting views of the ocean from sun room and one upstairs bedroom. Beach is sub 10 minute walk along a pretty footpath, and the SW Coast path runs literally 50m from the back of the house. We had a great week in Iona - will be back next year."
