In superb locations and beautiful settings. Cottages4you gives you a fantastic range of hand-picked properties with quality you can rely on.


Situated in the award-winning Towan Valley resort, in the seaside village of Porthtowan, this privately owned property is perfect for those who love walking.

Sitting in a sheltered valley just minutes from the golden beach, this contemporary, eco-friendly, semi-detached holiday home has been thoughtfully designed to provide comfortable and green holiday accommodation. It has also been awarded a Visit Britain 4* grading and a gold award. The property has a place to store wetsuits and there are metal loops in the wall to secure bikes. The owner also provides a gift voucher for a local country pub. The coastal village of Porthtowan has a rugged feel with cliff-top walks, a golden dune-backed beach and walks along the coastal path. There is a fantastic bar situated directly on the sand, which has live music and great food. Two surf shops provide water-based entertainment with tuition and hire, a great way to spend a day before the evening sets in for that al fresco dinner on the terrace of Porhellik. Locally, you will find Tehidy Country Park, a large wooded estate perfect for walks and cycling, with bike hire close by. Golf, horse riding, surfing and kayaking are all available nearby. A little further west, a short drive along a beautiful coastal road will bring you to St Ives, home to galleries, beaches, shops and restaurants. Beach ½ mile. Shop and pub serving food ½ mile.

    Our second stay here was just as good as the first. The accommodation is very clean, comfortable and thoughtfully equipped. Porthtowan is a beautiful location. We'll be back next year!

    Could not fault the cottage in any way and the sun faced us all day. The bedrooms were large enough and the kitchen had every facility that was required. The only negative was the walk from the beach back up to the cottage. I would certainly book this property again.

    A delightful holiday home comfortable, well equipped and very clean. A short walk to the beach and a great location for walking the South West Coast path between St. Ives and Newquay.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for taking the time to review Porhellik and for your kind emails. I’m so glad it was suitable for your walking holiday.

    Lovely cottage, very spacious and clean. The only down side was We had to travel out for a pub/restaurant.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; I’m so pleased you liked Porhellik and thank you for taking the time to review the property. Porthtowan is a small village with only three evening eating venues within walking distance, and sadly at the time of your visit one of them was closed although it is about to re-open. I do hope the limited choice didn’t affect your holiday too much.
