The property

Located in the beautiful Porthcurno valley, with its white sand beach, clear blue seas and spectacular rugged headlands, Godrevy is a well appointed second floor apartment with all the comforts of home; a spacious retreat for all seasons. This beautiful, peaceful valley creates the perfect environment for simply lazing on the beach, walking the rugged cliff paths and enjoying stunning views, or watching a performance at the ever popular Minack Theatre, carved out of the natural rock on the cliff edges, with the sea as a stunning backdrop. Porthcurno itself was the site of Britain's first major communications link to the Empire in 1870, where a chain of telegraph cables connecting Britain with India was completed.

Godrevy is ideally located just a five minute stroll to the beach, coastal footpath, tennis courts (charges apply), The Cable Inn, the famous Telegraph Museum and the world renowned Minack open air theatre. It is one of the individually owned apartments, each with their own private entrance, which have been sensitively converted from the former Porthcurno Hotel. Visit the pretty fishing village of Mousehole, a 20 minute drive away with its quaint and timeless ambiance, with tiny harbour and charming streets of galleries, restaurants and traditional inns all serving fresh local fayre. The bustling port of Newlyn is alive with colourful boats and fishing vessels offering pleasure trips. On its shoulder sits the vibrant town of Penzance, on the south facing shores of Mount's Bay. Travel further around this arc of sand and visit Marazion, with its stretch of sandy beach overlooking the surreal St Michael's Mount.

Tastefully presented with two comfortable en-suite bedrooms guests can relax in the uncluttered comfort of its interior. Large windows add a light and airy aspect to the living room which has lovely views across the valley and down to the sea. The modern kitchen is well equipped and a range cooker is a real bonus for those that like to cook. Outside is a private decking area with a bench seat and guests have access to the peaceful shared terraced gardens (please supervise your children). There are two reserved car parking spaces for Godrevy. We are sure you will enjoy your stay in this magical corner of Cornwall with all this holiday home has to offer.
