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.

Spotlessly clean and a great location and very comfortable

Everything with Trevena was of a very high standard. Very well appointed, superbly equipped and very comfortable. One of the finest properties we have stayed at.

For us a superb location as Porthtowan itself only has one village store but a short drive if 20 minutes towards Hayle on the A30 takes you to a large M & S and on the opposite exit to other stores, so easy to stock up with food.

Tips on getting there. Set your Sat Nav to Beach Road, Porthtowan, turn right up Sandy Lane just after premier stores then after only about 200 yards turn left up the single track road.

Immaculate property, in a good location for us to find surf at surrounding beaches. Extremely well equipped and Aspect were brilliant, thank you

Super space, great for surfing, dog friendly and great position house. Super clean and great amenities, and two balconies and seating area around back with parking space for easy unpacking of vehicle. Plenty of space and great sized bedrooms, and en-suite with another bathroom and downstairs Loo. We can’t wait to come back as felt like home. You need to use the Wifi for signal as not get phone signal, but when your trying to get way for a break it was No problem for us.

Trevena was lovely. Very clean and spacious. In a nice quiet location but easy walk to the village, beach and costal walks. Would recommend and happily come back again.

A lovely property in a lovely place! Will definitely revisit.
