We all had a great time at The Cove even though the weather was not that great. Beach was lovely and so close! Our 4 year old great granddaughter loved the pool left behind by the tide. Would definitely love to go back again.

Holidays in Porth

With a beautiful, sandy and sheltered beach on the doorstep, and only a 15-minute walk from everything Newquay has to offer, the area of Porth is ideal for a relaxing holiday by the sea. 

Porth has an interesting history, dating back centuries. Porth Island, also known as Trevelgue Head was the site of an Iron age fort, with remains still evident today, dating back to the Bronze age. The beach also played a vital role when Newquay became a china clay port; importing coal from south Wales. 

Top tip

Pack a picnic and enjoy a day at the beach!



The sandy, sheltered Porth beach is one of Newquay's finest, and with a vast expanse of sand and plenty of rock pools at low tide, it's perfect for a family day at the beach. It's also lifeguarded between 10am and 6pm during the summer months. To the east of the beach you'll find Porth Island, featuring evidence of an iron age settement, and accessible only via a narrow foot bridge!


Whipsiderry is great for exploring, with plenty of rock pools to keep you busy. Although the steps down to the beach are a little tricky to negotiate, it's well worth the journey. Plus - this beach is dog friendly all year!

Things to do


One of the best walks is the coastal path, you can follow this to Watergate Bay, and if you're up to it, all the way to Mawgan Porth. You'll experience breathtaking views, and if you're lucky, you may even see some sea life!


Roo's Beach in Porth, is a high-end fashion and lifestyle shop where you'll find stylish clothes, shoes, make-up, stationary, candles, crockery, blankets and more. 

Further afield, Newquay high street has a range of shops where you'll find everything you need from food, to toiletries, to gifts. 

Other activities

If you're looking for something more active to do, you can try out zorbing at Cornwall Zorbing Park

Alternatively, if relaxation is what you're looking for, the spa at Sands resort is open to the public.

Lovely weekend at the cove. Excellent seaview. Perfect. Lovely Sunday lunch in the pub. Swift response from aspects regarding a plumbing issue.

We all had a great time at The Cove even though the weather was not that great. Beach was lovely and so close! Our 4 year old great granddaughter loved the pool left behind by the tide. Would definitely love to go back again.

We had the best time staying at the cove. It has everything we needed and more. We have rebooked next year and this will be our third visit. Great place to stay with little ones as the beach is so close and the property provided us with: stair gates, cor bed, high chair, baby monitors. We had a wonderful time.

Our stay at The Cove was wonderful, it was a real home from home for all the family. We had everything we needed. The Cove was in such a convenient spot for the beach, pub and buses into town.

We had a lovely stay here for February half term. The house is well equipped for larger groups with ample parking (we had 3 cars between us and it was very easy to get in and out). Just a minute to a lovely beach and walks along the coast path. Ideally located for trips out - we went to St Michael's Mount, St Ives, tintagel and the Eden project - as well as for exploring the beaches of Newquay.

Lovely house. Well equipped for more than 10 people. Was a nice surprise when we went into the property. Milk and a welcome pack left for us was a nice gesture and appreciated after a long journey. Looked out onto the beach and was nice to sit on the decked area to watch the waves etc. Will be booking again .

Amazing house in a perfect location. If cleaning of property improves this is definitely worth a visit. We will hopefully be returning again next year!

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are sorry to hear that you had been disappointed with the standard of cleaning on this occasion. This is certainly not the norm; not what we would expect for guests to arrive to, and we would not expect you to have a similar issue if you were to return to this property in the future. Had we been aware at the time of your stay, we would have immediately sent the owners housekeeper back to address any concerns. We have passed on your feedback and have booked in a spot check for the following changeover, just to make sure that everything is as it should be. We hope to see you back soon and sorry again.

The Cove at Porth has delivered exactly what we wanted! a family friendly break with simply the best beach for children in all of Cornwall. we were a party of 6 adults 3 toddlers and 3 babies, the Cove was more than big enough for us all and equipped perfectly (the house has everything) for our week long stay.

Sitting on the Deck with a cold Rattler whilst the sun goes down is just bliss!

we would not hesitate to book the Cove again for future family holidays.

The cove is a beautiful house. Really nice furnishings, and has everything you need to accommodate you. 10 of us stayed, the house is very tastefully decorated. The bedrooms are spacious, and the bed linen is beautiful. We are looking to book for next year already.

We have just returned from a most successful three-generation family holiday at The Cove. The property afforded beautiful views over the bay, and the beach was within easy access. It was well equipped with all that would be needed for a self-catering holiday and the en-suite bedrooms were comfortable and spacious. Porth is an excellent centre, much quieter than neighbouring Newquay, with opportunites for walking and body boarding locally, but also within a short drive from many of Cornwall's wonderful attractions.

A lovely stay in a perfect beach location. Aspects offer a great level of service and sorted issues when they arose. We stayed in Porth and with young children it is the perfect beach. It is also a lot quieter than Newquay so you feel removed from the hustle and bustle.

Great house with everything you’d need, kitchen with high spec appliances and all rooms en-suite bar one. Bedrooms are spacious and beautifully decorated. We had a lovely week with family spanning 3 generations. Porth beach is great for swimming/ body boarding with a life guard on duty. Nice headland walk a few minutes away. Not much else in immediate area but a short drive away and you have the Cornish coastline and towns/villages. Aspect were very good to deal with, easy and efficient. We had a small issue with them smoke alarm and after putting a call in to their office, we had an electrician with us within the hour, brilliant service. You won’t regret booking The Cove.

Excellent location with plenty of space and excellent decor throughout. Perfect for anyone wanting a relaxing coastal break.

The Cove is a beautiful home, and the owners have been incredibly kind too. The house is located in a prime position to enjoy the views and soak up the sun during the day, and to be a cozy haven at night. Sheer perfection!

Great location

All ten of us (three generations ) had a wonderful time at the Cove and would have booked again for next year had it not already been full - perhaps 2022!

The Cove is a great house for a holiday in Cornwall. Plenty of room (and bathrooms!), well equipped and spotlessly clean. Lovely to find tea, coffee and homemade cake on arrival after a long journey. Great sea views and wonderfully close to the beach. Would definitely recommend.

Well done Aspect we will be back

We had a wonderful holiday at The Cove. The property was spotlessly clean and very well equipped. There were even freshly baked flapjacks to welcome us! Delicious! Great location as beach just across the road. It was great to relax on the front patio and admire the amazing views. Only wish we could have stayed longer!

Perfect large house. Well equipped, good quality beds with cotton linens, tasteful furnishings, noise between rooms was minimal, fantastic location, great to have so many ensuite bathrooms. I miss the sea view!

We really enjoyed staying in this property for a family holiday, it’s been beautifully and thoughtfully furnished throughout and is in a great location right next to Porth beach.

We absolutely LOVED The Cove! Every need was catered for! From the kids games, beach toys, amazing pressed coffee and the outside seating, I cannot fault anything because it was a perfect stay! Absolutely loved the homemade lemon cake on arrival, that was a lovely welcome! We had a mixture of children and adults from 5 years to 80 years, and everyone was well taken care of in terms of facilities provided. The location was excellent for the beach and the morning walks, and the fresh pizza from the opposite Mermaid Inn was delicious. A perfect family house in a superb location with sea views!

The property was exceptional and of a very high standard. The whole family ranging from age 71 to 16 months really enjoyed our time there. The beach was only about 100 yards away, great for the children. The decking at the front of the property was just perfect, and we spent many a night there watching the sunset.

Beautiful house, fabulous location. Spotlessly clean and everything thought of for your stay 5*.

Very good. The house was wonderful. Perfect.Plenty of equipment.Veiws rwere amazing The house was spotless. What can I say we all had a great weekend.Will be back next year. Would recommend The Cove 10 out of 10.
