The property

Sandy Cove is the epitome of British summer vacationing, within an easy stroll of the beach.

Fresh, light and contemporary in style, yet in-keeping with the traditional layout of the quaint Cornish village of Porthtowan, this seaside apartment has been created for families and surfers alike.

Porthtowan is a thriving coastal village with a relaxed vibe and a good range of local facilities.

Within a few moments walk of the apartment are a small supermarket, a delicatessen and an ice cream shop as well as local pub/restaurants including the popular Blue Bar bistro for ocean front, alfresco dining. Large French windows flood the apartment with light and open out to a super deck with views of the sea.

Here you can relax away from the activity of the beach with a good book or cook up some fresh local food on a barbecue.

With views of sand dunes and clear waters rolling onto the blue flag beach, the apartment could hardly be closer to the expansive beach which is life guarded from May to September.

As well as the picturesque beach being great for picnics sunbathing and swimming, novice to experienced surfers will be well catered for with a local surf school offering tuition to all ages plus surfboard and wet suit hire. The spectacular South West Coast Path runs through the village towards the beautiful beaches of Chapel Porth and St Agnes in the East and Portreath in the West so be sure to bring your walking boots.

For a more cosmopolitan day out head to Falmouth, just 30 minutes away by car on the South coast and enjoy getting lost in the captivating lanes for a day of shopping, browsing art galleries, visiting artisan eateries or exploring the National Maritime Museum.

Part of a small development, Sandy Cove is on a no through road that leads to the beach.

Porthtowan is a small village resting on west Cornwall’s beautiful coastline, renowned for its Blue Flag beach, which at low tide exposes almost a mile and a half of fine, golden sands. Fringed by impressive granite cliffs, the beach is a popular surfing venue and is lifeguarded during the summer, making it ideal for families. Porthtowan is part of the St Agnes designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and there are some wonderful walks to be found, offering vivid scenery along the South West Coast Path, whether you choose to head east to St Agnes or west to Portreath. The towns of St Ives and Penzance, with their art galleries, restaurants and quaint harbours, are half an hour’s drive away, whilst Flambards Theme Park, The Cornish Seal Sanctuary in Gweek, and the Goonhilly Satellite Earth Station are just a few of the other diverse attractions scattered around this picturesque region.
