Just returned from a fantastic week at Escape. The house is lovely and welcoming and has all that you need. We enjoyed a walk every morning down to the beach and up to the Minack Theatre with our dog Daisy which was a fab way to start the day. Food deliveries are available from the supermarkets which is ideal. Very friendly neighbours who we chatted to quite often. Didn't want to leave!

October 2021

We were so pleased with Escape, the house felt like a home immediately and exceeded our expectations from the photographs. We loved the 'feel' of the house; it felt very 'Dutch' and reminded us of our stays in Jon's sister's apartment in Oude Delft. Everything we could possible need was there, and we also admired the fixtures, fittings and decoration. I loved the roll-out vegetable trolley, the incredibly comfy and luxurious bed; Jon loved the whole house and garden, the grey settee and the guitar. He serenaded me from the mezzanine while I was cooking! Ruby-dog loved the space for her basket, the walk to the sea and the tennis ball she found on her first foray into the garden. We would like to thank the owners for sharing their home with us. And we are sure we will be back to stay again. And, Jon and Ruby October 2021

Things to do near Porthcurno

Minack Theatre
Built in to the cliff face at Porthcurno, the world famous Minack Theatre runs outdoor performances from May to September attracting many who wishing for an ‘al fresco’ theatrical experience with the most beautiful back drop of the sea and sunset. This world-renowned theatre is truly a theatre under the stars. It was built by hand by Rowena Cade and her gardener Billy Rawlings and Tom Angove. The story of how the theatre came about is a tribute to one woman’s vision. Rowena died in 1983. The theatre has undergone technical modifications to cope with the increased audience numbers. However, it is still a truly unique and magical place, with seats carved into the cliffs and a stunning backdrop and sea views. Always take hats and sunscreen for matinees; and warm clothes for the evening. Arriving early with your picnic basket is positively encouraged and The Minack has its own micro-climate and rarely cancels a show. Read more on our blog post: Theatres in Cornwall.

Places to visit near Porthcurno

Treen
Conveniently located for cliff walking and bird watching, Treen is just a short walk away from the secluded sandy beaches of Porthcurno. 

Logan Rock
Logan Rock, meaning 'balanced stone' is also closeby. This granite boulder weighing approximately 80 tonnes, could once be rocked by applying just a little pressure. The story goes that it was once dislodged in 1824 by a group of British seamen wishing to show their skill and courage. Outraged by this, the local residents insisted the rock was replaced, as it had become a local landmark. Ironically this was a much more challenging feat, taking 60 men, 7 months to complete. Logan's Rock still moves today, but with much less ease than it once did.

Dating back over 400 years, the Logan Rock Inn serves good food and beer and offers a friendly, country-pub atmosphere.

Penberth Cove
Home to a small fishing fleet, Penberth Cove is nearby and provides the perfect place to relax in a tranquil setting. Ideal for a spot of birdwatching or simply enjoying the scenery.

Just returned from a fantastic week at Escape. The house is lovely and welcoming and has all that you need. We enjoyed a walk every morning down to the beach and up to the Minack Theatre with our dog Daisy which was a fab way to start the day. Food deliveries are available from the supermarkets which is ideal. Very friendly neighbours who we chatted to quite often. Didn't want to leave!

We had a lovely week at Escape. Everything in the house we needed and very clean. Enclosed garden great as we took our dog with us. Walked to porthcurno beach several times, which is beautiful. Also visited Sennen cove and had delicious fish and chips on the seafront. Definitely recommend a week staying here.

OK for the price!

Escape is a beautifully appointed property; so thoughtfully furnished/designed/curated throughout. Everything is spotless and the flexibility afforded by the bedroom set ups plus the various places to be in the house mean it’s a great family house. The positioning is perfect for a quick get away to Sennen beach in the car ( avoiding traffic jams further down the valley) and just a short walk down to Porthcurno. We had an amazing week and would love to stay here again.

Very clean and well equipped property with safe off-road parking. The location is ideal for visiting areas such as Cape Cornwall, Botallack and Zennor etc, and just minutes away from some of Cornwall's most spectacular coastal walks. Thank you to the owners for providing a wonderful last minute break, and as always, thank you Aspects Holidays.

Just the most perfect beach house. The house was well presented and immaculate with all you need for a relaxing holiday stay. Incredible walking straight from the door, would definitely recommend this property and will be booking with Aspects again in the future.

We had a very pleasant stay at one of the most beautiful parts of the UK. Thank you we will be back again!

We loved our stay here. The bungalow is geared up for holiday living and the location is perfect. A five minute walk to the beach and the coastal path. The area is stunning and we would definitely return.

We had a fantastic 5 day break despite the rain as the cottage was made for cosy days. The roomy and comfortable living space meant that all 4 teenagers had space to relax and we could too. The attic was fantastic for lounging! The dog enjoyed his holiday, ideal as the garden was enclosed and with wooden floors throughout, we didnt need to worry. It was a quick walk to Porthcurno beach which is beautiful especially out of season. The woodburner was amazing!

Aspect holidays have been great to deal with. We got around lots of places in Cornwall whilst on our holidays & all Aspect accommodation we came across looked just as good as ours, very well maintained & modern. We will definitely be using them again. Thank you Aspect Holidays keep up the hard work.

Great quirky property with plenty of space just 10 mins walk from the beautiful porthcurno beach. Our family of four adults stayed there and found it very clean and comfy. Would highly recommend and we would stay there again

This property is a perfect location for Porthcurno beach and The Minack theatre. The area is stunning. You will need a car here as no shops and very rural. Property was a little dusty in certain places and cooker hood needs replacing. The cottage has a lovely seaside feel about it and older children will love the cosy nook.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your comments. We were so sorry to hear that areas of cleaning were not to the high standard that you would expect from properties that we market. Looking further into your comment about replacing the cooker hood, this was also due to the cleanliness of it. The housekeeper for this property was changed a few days after your feedback was received and all areas that you mentioned were addressed. We have since been in touch to apologise personally and thank you for making us aware of this. Tanya, Customer Services

Escape is a lovely house, really well suited to a family break. A beautiful area with great walks from the house and Sennen a short hop in the car. We had a couple of chilly days so the wood burner was put to good use in the evenings! Aspects a pleasure to deal with - many thanks.
