The property

Porthcurno and its spectacular cove of soft white sands and clear azure seas framed by jagged headlands was the site of Britains 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 an easy stroll from the beach, coastal footpath, tennis courts, and museum, we feature individually owned apartments sensitively converted from a former hotel, along with three that are detached from the main building.
Well appointed and featuring a light modern decor and attractively furnished it provides all the comforts of home and has access to the terraced gardens (please supervise young children) and communal parking. The newly extended and refurbished
ground floor has transformed Longships into a delightfully bright and cheerful holiday home. This holiday home has a well equipped kitchen/diner. Upstairs the master bedroom enjoys a lovely double aspect with French doors opening out on to a decked area with access to the gardens. There is allocated parking.
