The Details

  • Location

    Where is it?

    2 The Beach is an apartment in a contemporary development perched high on the cliffs overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and Porthtowan beach. A private footpath leads directly onto the golden sand below- it is as though the beach is your own front garden.

    Porthtowan sits at the foot of high cliffs on north Cornwall's rugged coast. The village has a lovely relaxed, off-the-beaten-path feel, with a very pretty sandy beach backed by cliffs. There's a handful of cafes, pubs and restaurants, plus surf hire and lessons and great walks to neighbouring beaches along the coast path to keep you busy.

    The beautiful St Agnes is accessible by foot on the South West Coast Path or a short drive away. Here you will also find plenty of places to eat out and enjoy an evening cocktail on the beach.

Guest Reviews

"One of the best locations we have stayed for a close view of the sea, so enjoyable watching the surf even in bad weather."
M Soames, April 2024
"Wow what a fantastic view from the apartment we loved every minute of our holiday at No 2 The Beach, we have booked for next year. The apartment was very comfortable and well equipped, great place to stay. The best thing about No 2 The Beach was sat on the sofa looking out to sea, the views are stunning from the apartment. Beach Retreats gave us fantastic service with regular updates for our holiday which was much appreciated.

G Squire, August 2023
"Wonderful views over the beach, great apartment with everything you could need. Watching Surfers sat on the balcony was so relaxing. Great holiday."
K Cannon, June 2023
"The apartment was beautiful, it was spotlessly clean and had everything you needed. It had fantastic views overlooking the beach / sea with its own private path which was perfect for heading down into the village (and of course the beach). Whilst the steps were not an issue for us, they could be steep in places so not ideal for the less mobile. That aside, definitely recommend this apartment."
L Tustin, April 2023
"Fantastic property in a idyllic location. All needs catered for even down to the dog bowls."
