The property

Porthcurno and its spectacular cove of soft white sands and clear azure seas framed by jagged headlands was the site of Britain's first major empire communications link in 1870 where a chain of telegraph cables connecting Britain with India was completed.

This beautiful peaceful valley creates the perfect environment for quietly lazing by the sea, walking the rugged cliff paths and enjoying stunning views, or watching a performance at the unforgettable Minack Theatre carved out of the natural rock on the cliff edge, with the sea as a magnificent backdrop.

Ideally located just a short stroll from the beach, coastal footpath, tennis courts, and museum, we feature individually owned apartments sensitively converted from a former hotel. Well appointed and featuring a light modern decor and attractive furnishings they provide all the comforts of home and all have access to the terraced gardens (please supervise young children) and communal parking. A very attractive and supremely spacious ground floor apartment, strictly for discerning couples who put great emphasis on space and comfort.

Positioned at the front of the building entry is straight into a kitchen/diner fitted in cream Shaker style cabinets, then to the left is a richly carpeted lounge and to the right a bedroom with a super king bed (which can be arranged as a twin) a newly refurbished ensuite bathroom and French doors lead out onto a a small enclosed outdoor sitting space with access to a lockable store cupboard, suitable to store surfing and beach equipment. There is a parking space directly opposite the apartment.
