The Details

  • Location

    Where is it?

    Sandy Toes is part of The Beach, a contemporary development perched high on the cliffs overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and Porthtowan beach. Guests can enjoy the private footpath that leads directly onto the golden sand below.

    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 tipple on the beach.

Guest Reviews

"Great location and fantastic views. The property is well furnished and the kitchen is well equipped. All in all we enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning."
J Jeavons, October 2023
"We've stayed there before - it's a beautiful apartment in a perfect location."
K Downing, July 2023
"The apartment at Porthtowan is stunning, beautifully appointed, and very comfortable. The location is perfect, overlooking a stunning beach that's brilliant for surfing and bodyboarding."
S O'Connell, July 2023
"Amazing view, so lovely to wake up to watching the waves every day."
L Bertram, April 2023
"We loved our week at Sandy Toes! Walking in, we got a huge wow! We have stayed in Porthtowan a few times and had always admired these apartments from the beach but didn't know how to book- Now we do! The view is so lovely, the living area and both bedrooms look out onto the beach so you can hear the waves. It's on one level, and has a stylish/beachy decor, comfy beds and an open plan living/well equipped kitchen area. Our children went bodyboarding every day and they would have happily stayed in Porthtowan all week. The private path to the beach is great and you're down in a minute."
A Brown, October 2022
"Fabulous location, the apartment is lovely and comfortable."
K Kelly, October 2022
"This was our second visit to Sandy Toes - special views and a quiet peaceful village. The apartment has everything you need for a holiday, better equipped than my home."
S Wilkinson, August 2022
"We had a lovely holiday, Sandy Toes was in a perfect location, quiet with a great beach and access to walks and great waves for surfing. The property was clean, fresh and relaxing and a good base for exploring Cornwall. The access road to the property was quite tricky to begin with but we got used to it. The information about Kitchen Angels and food4yourholiday proved to be really good and I would use them both again. Beach Retreats provided excellent service and even arranged for a left jacket to be posted to me. We look forward to a return visit."
L Service, July 2021
"Gorgeous apartment with superb views of the beach and sea. The apartment had everything you could possibly need and it was of a very high quality. Lovely lying and listening to the waves at night."
S Wilkinson, June 2021
"Our second visit to Sandy Toes and perfect for us and the dog. We particularly like the outside space of the terrace to relax on and the beach views are spectacular. The property is, without doubt, the best we have ever stayed in terms of facilities and kitchen equipment, all of which are of excellent quality."
J Glenister, April 2021
