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.
