  • “This wonderful apartment was just perfect for our family holiday to Porthtowan.”

    We wanted to be close to a beach but also have amenities around us too. The apartment was beautifully clean and the attention to detail was absolutely amazing. The little extras, like dog blankets, toys for the dogs, scones and clotted cream on arrival, souvenir jam jars to take home. The list goes on! The apartment is very modern and well thought out. The drawers and cupboards were full of everything you will need! It was very comfy and had a home from home feel to it. The main oven didn’t ...

    We wanted to be close to a beach but also have amenities around us too. The apartment was beautifully clean and the attention to detail was absolutely amazing. The little extras, like dog blankets, toys for the dogs, scones and clotted cream on arrival, souvenir jam jars to take home. The list goes on! The apartment is very modern and well thought out. The drawers and cupboards were full of everything you will need! It was very comfy and had a home from home feel to it. The main oven didn’t work which was a shame but we managed with the top oven for the week. We struggled to remove the shower head from the unit which became a bit annoying at times. The water pressure wasn’t great but we knew this before we arrived. The only downside to this apartment is the lack of privacy in the garden. There is a few steps leading from the back garden which gives you quick access to the park opposite or the beach road. Unfortunately, our neighbours were using this constantly which did cause issues as we had no privacy whatsoever as they were in and out climbing over the wall every few minutes. This was the only big problem for us. Our children would be outside playing and then run in as they were embarrassed about having people walking over the wall. If it was a few times then this would’ve been fine, but it was very frequent! However, this wouldn’t stop us going back to Offshore, as we thoroughly enjoyed our stay there, it ticked every box for us. You are literally opposite the pub which is a great location if you like to go out for drinks and cocktails in the evening, but you do get a bit fed up with the smell of garlic and seafood entering the apartment every day. We visited the pub which didn’t really fit our family as the menu is mainly seafood. We asked for haddock and our kids ended up with platefuls of octopus, prawns and squid! Needless to say we left hungry which was a shame, but if you’re a seafood lover then you’ll love it! I have given this apartment 5 stars as we really were so overwhelmed by the amount of thought that’s gone into making this property perfect for your holiday by the sea! The little touches made it for us! Porthtowan is a beautiful place to stay. We will be back Offshore! Thanks for making this a holiday we’ll never forget! ❤️

The property

Looking to escape to a beautiful beachside bolthole with ocean views?

Offshore delivers an exemplary holiday experience of golden sand and surf within paces.

Pack flip flops and boogieboards and get set for seaside adventures at stunning Porthtowan.

This popular coastal village boasts an award winning beach for swimming and sandcastles, backed by dunes and dramatic cliffs.

Join the Surf School (there are seasonal life-guards) or simply relax with a parasol, a good book and a pasty.

This lively community has a deli, a small supermarket and pubs for all your refreshment needs.

The children's playground at the head of the beach will keep the little ones entertained too.

Enjoy lunch in the seaward facing Blue Bar, the much favoured après-surf café.

Spectacular sunset views across the ocean make a rewarding reason to linger with a nibble or tipple.

At low tide, you can walk to the equally superb Chapel Porth Beach or venture along the cliff-top footpath, eastbound to St Agnes or westwards to Portreath.

Further up the north Atlantic coastline are Trevaunance Cove, Newquay and Watergate Bay, with Jamie Oliver's 'Fifteen' restaurant.

Breathtaking Land's End is a worthy destination.

Stop off at picturesque St Ives and browse the quirky boutiques, gift shops and art galleries.

Falmouth is a 30 minute drive away, with Maritime Museum and historic Pendennis Castle ready for exploration.

Offshore forms part of a small development on a no-through road that leads to the beach.

Delightfully presented, this deceptively spacious seaside themed accommodation has whitewashed wood flooring, fresh hues and coastal vibe accessories.

The open-plan living room is very inviting with squashy sofas, a central table for social dining and a smart kitchen.

With a spangly shower room and two perfectly formed bedrooms - one with a double bed and other with flexible double bed/single bunk over (a maximum of 4 guests only) - all the creature comforts are provided.

Open wide the double doors to the decked courtyard overlooking the beach.

This glorious spot is perfect for breakfasts, barbecues and evening drinks, framed against the ocean backdrop.

About the location

PORTHTOWAN

St Agnes 4 miles; Portreath 4 miles; Truro 9 miles.

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. A great base for a varied family break.
