The property

Manege Cottage sits in a tranquil country setting close to beautiful beaches, coves and resorts on the north Cornish coastline.

Spoilt for a choice of coastal delights for swimming, surfing, rock-pooling and boating, there are many sandy beaches to discover.

Porthtowan, Perranporth, Porth Chapel and Trevaunance Cove at St Agnes are all reached within five miles.

Hire surf gear and take lessons to ride the waves or simply relax in one of the beach cafes and inns with good food, Cornish ale and an ocean backdrop.

Ramble and explore the cliff top paths that guarantee panoramic seascapes, amazing sunsets and glorious countryside.

Inland, take a trip to Truro, the cobbled city with magnificent Cathedral, cinema and theatre, plus shops, boutiques and galleries.

There are restaurants offering varied cuisine for all tastes, coffee houses and pasty emporiums! Manege Cottage makes a superb bolthole for couples seeking a rural retreat within easy reach of coastal and inland attractions.

The accommodation, part of the owners’ home with separate private entrance, is all on the ground floor with an open plan living room with well equipped kitchen and dining area.

From the living room, doors open out onto the paved patio – a sunshine spot with garden table and chairs for lazy breakfasts, nibbles and sundowner tipples.

The mature garden is pretty and guests are welcome to enjoy this space too, shared with the owners.

The bedroom oozes comfort for good sleeps and the wet-room is great for those sandy toes.

After a day in the Cornish air, Silverwell Forge Annex makes a delightful homely retreat for couples seeking recreation and relaxation.

Babes in arms welcome.

About the location


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.
