The property

Dreaming of lazy days by the sea and the freedom of the great outdoors? Then where else would you want to be than on a breathtaking stretch of coastline with a golden sandy cove literally on your doorstep. Lying two miles from Newquay's famous beaches and before the coast road climbs steeply heading two miles north to the magnificent surfing waves of Watergate Bay, home to the Extreme Water Sports Academy and Jamie Oliver's Fifteen restaurant, the quieter resort of Porth is well placed for a world of sun, sea and surf. Set in a small terrace of modern houses at the head of the award winning cove and beside a beachside Inn that caters well for visitors, with crazy golf and a pitch and putt nearby, the convenience of the location is unrivalled.

Entry at the rear of the property is straight into the galley style kitchen and on into a living room with floor to ceiling windows, beech flooring and contemporary furnishings. A door leads out onto a railed deck balcony where you can sit and enjoy the fresh sea air and the activity on the beach. Open tread stairs lead up and in keeping with the ocean side setting, the double bedroom captures a spectacular view across the cove and down to the sea, encapsulating a headland topped with a sparkling white Huer's hut where in times past a lone Huer would scan the sea for the silver pilchard harvest. Both bedrooms and the newly fitted bathroom are fresh and uncluttered.

Just around the low headland is Whipsiderry beach with caves and rock pools to explore at low tide and the coast path offers miles of scenic rambles. There is allocated parking for one car and extra parking nearby.

About the location

NEWQUAY

Holywell 6 miles; Perranporth 8.5 miles; Truro 14 miles; Padstow 14 miles.

Newquay is the home of the UK’s surf scene, boasting three major beaches, the National Surf Centre and an endless supply of rolling surf, making it a watersports paradise. The town, with its zoo, sea life centre and varied selection of restaurants and pubs, also promises a holiday to remember. For avid walkers, the South West Coast Path passes in both directions along a stunning coastline of high cliffs, hidden coves and yet more beaches. The quaint harbour and fishing village of Padstow is just 14 miles away, while Truro, with its museums, cathedral, restaurants and cobbled streets, as well as the Eden Project, can be reached within 45 minutes. Picturesque St Ives and the Tate St Ives gallery is around an hour's drive or a train ride away. In fact, because nothing in Cornwall is far from Newquay, it’s the perfect touring base.
