As The Cove is not just a holiday let to us but very much a home-from-home where we enjoy spending significant family time, we are restricting group bookings to a maximum of 4 adults and 2 children per booking. The property remains at a capacity of 6 so please enquire about alternative configurations but we would prefer not to book 6 adults at any one time. Thank you for your understanding.More

We had a suberb week here. It was the ideal spot for surfing at Porthotowan beach and for getting to other nearby places like St Agnes and Newquay. The apartment was really homely and had everything we needed. We will be back!

About the neighborhood
Porthtowan is set amidst some of the finest beaches and coastal walks in the south west. It has an interesting past and is not the 'polished' environment experienced in other more commercialised parts of Cornwall. This is a 'gritty', down to earth part of the county with many features reminiscent of its rich mining history. It is also home to many local Cornish families so it has an integrity which many areas have now sadly lost. You will find it the perfect place to unwind as well as a great base for exploring everything that Cornwall has to offer. Take your choice from its unique and dramatic scenery, broad sandy beaches, country pubs, grand houses and gardens, art galleries, quirky shops, entertainment and good food. The position of The Cove provides the perfect opportunity to simply ...
