The place doesn't look like much from the putside, but the inside leaves very little to be desired: decent sized room with well appointed barhroom. Totally quiet even though it's on the main village thouroughfare, with p,enty of earing options within walking distance. The breakfast was scrumptious and the friendly host easy to talk to.

Hired the house out for a week. Very interesting building with great character. Rooms were perfect for our party, and the kitchen facilities were excellent. House was very clean when we arrived. Hot tub was a hit with our party, and the provision of a gas barbecue perfect. The location in the village was ideal with bakery, butcher, veg shop... More

Maybe best B&B around the area with smashing hosts. Excellent location so best also for group rentals. Stayed B&B and earlier weekly rental and thoroughly enjoyed all aspects. Recommended.as ideal for family or friends groups with nearby pubs and restuarants.

I would highly recommend the Porthvean in St Agnes. With comfortable rooms and spacious reception accommodation, this place is full of character and is a great place to relax, unwind and explore the North Cornish coast. Geoff is an excellent and attentive host and prepared a delicious breakfast for us all, fresh fruit salad included.

The location is great but what strikes you the most the the welcome and personal touch you receive. The owners make you feel at home. The size of the bedrooms is pleasantly shocking. I have never seen such a beg bedroom with a double bed and a single bed with a dressing table and an armoire and side tables with... More

We rented the whole place for a family gathering. If anyone is considering a get together with varied ages ( we were 18months to 94) this is great. The teenagers loved the hot tub , sauna and games room which was well away from the lounge area. It was equipped extremely well with enough comfortable seating for everyone, a large... More

We have stayed at the Porthvean many times over the years and regard it as our home from home in St Agnes. Geoff and Ali were terrific hosts on our latest visit and the breakfasts were sublime. The room was large, clean and comfortable, I had some excellent nights sleeps. The en suite was spacious with a good sized shower.... More

Stopped here for 3 nights for a short break and to visit family nearby. On arrival we were greeted by the owner Geoff and the first thing that hit me was the lovely smell of the wood burning open fire in the lounge. This has to be one of the largest bedrooms I have ever stayed in and not only... More

My husbands family hired the whole place as self catering accommodation for our June wedding and it was perfect. The place was exceptionally well equipped, with a very large kitchen with 2 cookers 3 microwaves and enough pots and pans for the 20 + people we entertained. Comfortable lounge with ample room to relax and a large dinning table which... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and were allocated room 4 which had a superking bed and private ensuite. The room was large, full of character but had all the mod cons you'd need too. The breakfasts were amazing, a huge fruit salad with every type of fruit was available and cereals, toast and a full english. What struck us... More
