    “It's a Sandy Cove!”

    The location is magical! The beach basically greeted me at the doorstep, or should I say deck step! I worked my way around the local beaches as the tide changes allowed, observing the vast array of Cornish wildlife and local characters. This is a working travellers dream location! Fast wifi, a super quiet, clean and modern space, the apartment provided much needed clarity to write my travel blog.

    The location is magical! The beach basically greeted me at the doorstep, or should I say deck step! I worked my way around the local beaches as the tide changes allowed, observing the vast array of Cornish wildlife and local characters. This is a working travellers dream location! Fast wifi, a super quiet, clean and modern space, the apartment provided much needed clarity to write my travel blog. The first evening I met a load of friendly people at the Blue bar across the dunes and ended up surfing with them the next morning after renting a surfboard and wetsuit on the beach. The surfboard rack in the property came in handy as did the outdoor hose, this beach its seriously sandy! The sea was way warmer than the waves back in Scotland, and I was treated to sunny weather all week (except one day of rain and wind-as is to be expected on the coast). My only gripe was the garden next door, nothing to do with this property but it would be nice if it was decked as nicely as Sandy Cove. Would Recommend!

The property

Be it summer getaways or cosy winter staycations, Sandy Cove is a great choice for both .

With fresh, light, contemporary styling, the seaside ground floor apartment is created for families, couples and surfers alike.

Sandy Cove rests in the quaint Cornish village of Porthtowan, a thriving, mythical and scenic bay, which inspired the likes of Rosamunde Pilcher and J.R.R.

Tolkien.

Within a few moments walk of the apartment lay a small supermarket, delicatessen, ice cream shop, children's play area and local pub/restaurants including the Blue Bar bistro for ocean front, alfresco dining.

Large French windows flood the apartment with light and open out to a deck to the rear with a sea view.

Relax here, with a good book or cook up fresh local food and eat alfresco.

The apartment could hardly be closer to the Blue Flag Beach which is life guarded from May to September, and features a local surf school with surfboard and wet suit hire for all ages. The South West Coast Path runs through the village, joining Chapel Porth, St Agnes and Portreath so bring your walking boots.

For a more cosmopolitan day, head to Falmouth - just 30 minutes away - and enjoy getting lost in the captivating lanes for a day of shopping, art galleries, artisan eateries and museums.

Part of a small development, Sandy Cove backs onto a no-through road.

The master bedroom features a double bed and the guest room offers a double bed with single upper bunk, suitable for couples or children.

For a sunny summer holiday or cosy winter break when the long nights roll in, stay snug under cosy blankets, while listening to the waves crash onto the white sand beach.

From the comfortable outdoor seating, watch the sunset from the deck, stargaze and enjoy the Cornish coast.

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.
