This delightful first-floor property is just a stone’s throw from a beautiful sandy beach and is ideal for Newquay fans.

If it’s some of the country’s finest surf that you’re after, then this bright apartment makes the perfect base for three guests and a hound looking for a North Cornwall retreat. Ideally situated in the popular area of Porth, you are within easy reach of golden sands, with the South West Coast Path providing you with a short walk to Watergate Bay, or on towards Padstow.

This stylish first-floor property has a cosy and bright open-plan lounge/kitchen/dining area, which ensures that no one is left out, whether you’re cooking a meal, planning an adventure at the dining table or simply relaxing on the sofa. From the lounge, patio doors leading out onto a balcony where you will discover lovely views, or you can head downstairs and relax on the shared patio area. With allocated parking there is no endless hunting for a space, regardless of the time of year, and you also have access to a secure garage to store your surfboards, wetsuits or bikes.

Located to the east of Newquay, Porth has numerous eateries and watering holes for you to enjoy, with a small supermarket in neighbouring Columb Minor (1 mile away) if you would prefer to eat in. More restaurants, bars and cafes – and entertainment for all ages – can be found in the heart of Newquay, 2 miles west, and the town is also home to numerous sandy surf beaches to satisfy salty sea dogs (useful, as Porth beach is a dog-free zone from 9am–7pm). Further afield, the pretty harbour of Padstow lies 14 miles north-east, where you can watch the local fishing fleet land its catch before enjoying the day’s haul at one of the local seafood restaurants.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

I know Porth very well having come here since being a child at least once a year and usually stay in the Porth Veor Manor apartments but since getting a dog we've stayed in the Beach House nearby. This apartment is in the right location but the bed is uncomfortable, cooker slow and the place needs a general upgrade. The holiday was great - the accoRead moremmodation below par. Hide

This is a nice little flat which was clean and tidy and pretty well equipped. It is very handy for Porth Beach. The nearby road is very busy in the summer, even through the night. Would probably stay here again if recommended improvements were made.

The location to the beach is fantastic, the property was very clean and a good level of equipment. Unfortunately the building next door is off putting hence no photos of the outside, but the people living there are very friendly.

The apartment is ideally situated within less than a 1-minute walk to Porth Beach. The apartment is comfortable and clean, well equipped and has Wi-Fi which was certainly a benefit. We stayed there with our 6-year old daughter and it worked well for the three of us. It's an ideal apartment for exploring the local area (Newquay is a 20-30 minute walRead morek via the coastal path). Padstow is 20 minutes down the road by car. We would recommend this apartment and would return if visiting again. Hide

We were very comfortable in the cottage and appreciated the cleanliness. One of the light-bulbs in the sitting room was fused and we had no hot water at first. We needed to ask a permanent resident in the complex to rectify that for us, and he did so very well.

This property is great. The location is amazing. Very close to the beach. Nice and cosy. Great tea house just next door. Good view from the balcony too. Would definitely revisit this property in the future.

Apartment was in a great position for beach and also situated well for touring the area. Road running past apartment quite busy and a little noisy at times but didnt affect holiday.

We had a great holiday the apartment was small and cosy for 3 of us but was clean tidy and well equipped. It was really close to porth beach and a lovely tearoom called Gweenas. My only criticism is there is a busy road outside but would not put us off from returning again.

Reviewed by Andrea 4th August 2018

Really good holiday and location is great apart from the road noise. Apartment perfect for 3 but has just changed hands and needs some TLC. Parking space was a godsend as we stayed in school holidays so very busy. 2 minute walk downhill to beach and 10 minutes to the pub. Would return
