Situated in a quiet valley in the coastal village of Porthtowan, this eco-style beach house provides the perfect place for a relaxing getaway. Sooth your muscles after a day's hike of the nearby coastal paths, in the luxurious hot tub, listening to the surrounding sea birds. Three bedrooms and spacious living space makes Trelawney perfect for families and couples. The village and beach of Porthtowan are a short ten minute walk away, where you can relax with your toes in the sand or enjoy a sunset drink in the popular Blue Bar, right on the beach front. Pets are welcome at Trelawney so your furry friend can share your memories too.

Externally, the house is designed to blend in with the surrounding landscape, featuring stunning glass, wood, and sedum architecture. Nestled between St Ives and Newquay, the Towan Valley retreat is a popular tourist spot, with its golden sandy beach, cliff walks and vibrant surf scene.

May 2021

I cannot recommend this accommodation highly enough. Everything looked new and stylish and very clean. The furnishings and bedding were great. There was lots of information available both before the holiday and in the house when we arrived. There are lots of walks locally and the surfing looked excellent although we are not surfers. Other good beaches are within 20 minutes drive. I will certainly return to Trelawney.

Holidays in Porthtowan

Situated between St Ives and Newquay, Porthtowan is well located for those looking to visit these popular coastal towns. It’s also secluded enough to escape the crowds and relax in a hidden area of Cornwall. Close to Perranporth and St Agnes, Porthtowan is perfect for exploring the sandy beaches in this area and enjoying the stunning views along the South West Coast Path.

Surfing in Porthtowan

Close to the rugged cliffs and a stunning sandy beach, yet sheltered by adjoining rolling fields; Porthtowan is in the heartland of traditional Cornwall. There is a vibrant surf scene in the village with a nearby surf school, surf hire facilities and lots of opportunity to enjoy outdoor pursuits. Although secluded, you’re also close to Newquay and Portreath which are both renowned surf spots. Read more on our blog about surf spots in Cornwall.

Eating out in Porthtowan

The Blue Bar beachside restaurant sits literally on the beach and serves delicious meals and bar snacks. There is plenty of outdoor seating where you can enjoy watching the waves and is exceptionally beautiful in the evening as the sun sets.

Nearby, you also have two pubs; the 17th century Victory Inn, and the Unicorn, both serving up fresh local food.

Walking

Situated on the South West Coast Path, Porthtowan is ideal for those looking to explore. Coastal walks in this area offer stunning ocean views but venture inland and you’ll find many examples of Cornwall’s mining heritage. Take the circular walk from Porthtowan to Chapel Porth and you’ll find Wheal Coates engine house and the mining remains of Chapel Combe. 

There are seasonal dog restrictions on Porthtowan beach between 15th May and 30th September between the hours of 10am and 6pm. Outside of these hours it is dog friendly as well as being dog friendly between 1st October and 14th May. If you do bring a dog, the nearby beach of Bassett’s Cove is to the west of Porthtowan and allows dogs on the beach all year round.
