Best thing about

The panoramic sea and beach view and the path direct onto the beach.

The Details


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

The property met all our expectations and more. Very high quality accommodation and presented exactly as depicted. A wonderful find.
Amazing stay at No.2 The Beach. Views are incredible! The property had everything you needed.
We had a lovely time, the apartment was perfect and the location fantastic. Our doggo had the time of her life!
Absolutely beautiful, Just could not fault it, the location amazing.
We chose no 2 The Beach in Porthtowan as we wanted somewhere with views and close to the beach. The apartment was clean, had everything you would need and the view over the beach is spectacular. We often left the door open in the bedroom to listen to the waves at night - incredibly soothing...The bar, cafe and pub are within easy reach if you want to eat out, and there is also an adequate village shop. We didn't use the car once after we arrived and spent most of our time on our balcony or on the beach. I think we may have found our perfect place.
The property was a lovely apartment with fantastic sea views which was very well equipped. The decor was modern and attractive the bed comfortably and the welcome hamper a lovely touch. We woke up every morning to have breakfast on the balcony watching the surfers, everyone in the area was extremely friendly and we would definitely go back.
