The 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 walk to the beach

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

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 comments

  • 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, please ensure that you pick up after your pets, as this place is great for them, and wouldn't want that to change, thanks.

  • Lovely holiday home, great location and area. Well equipped. Perfect for a family 90th birthday celebration with 10 year old and a teenager. Loved the fire pit to roast marshmallows. Highly recommend.

  • So many positives about this property and location. Perfect for our large family of adults and little children. Had the best holiday ever and the weather was fantastic.
    AC, August 2019

  • We all had a wonderful stay with the property providing comfortable family accommodation and beautiful views. The expanse of the living areas provided the children with ample space for the children. We all really appreciated the sky TV and WI FI (especially the men). Thank you for a wonderful Christmas holiday.
