    “Great booking experience with a helpful operator and good information provided ahead of time.”


    Nice enough apartment internally and as described. Shame there isn't a dishwasher and it felt like one could easily have been accommodated in the kitchen with all the storage space, but maybe that's a conscious decision? The building the apartment is in is dated and I'm guessing this is why there are no external images showing the front or rear of the property. You can't fault the location though, right next to the beach and a park, both of which our 4-year-old loved. Great entertainment options with the Google speaker and smart TV (with Netflix/Amazon already setup), which were ideal for some downtime. The apartment did feel clean with the possible exception of the kitchen. There was a dirty grill pan in the oven and the cupboards could have done with a wipe over. Small details but they make a difference. In the second bedroom, only the bottom bunk was made up and our daughter wanted to sleep on the top. It was difficult to swap them over and we felt both should have been prepared ahead of time. All of the cushions for the outdoor furniture were soaking wet when we arrived and despite bringing them inside straightaway, most of them didn't dry out until we were about to leave. The welcome scones in the fridge a definite plus :D Overall, I'd say it was 7.5/10 stay but could have been a 10 save for some of the above gripes.

    Thank you for taking the time to respond to our feedback request about your recent stay at Sandy Cove. We are sorry to hear that you were disappointed about the property not having a dishwasher. We have spoken with the house cleaners and in future all of the beds will be made up not matter how many guests are staying. We are pleased to hear that despite the points raised you enjoyed your stay at Sandy Cove. Owner relations

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.
