    “You approach on a narrow road with no passing places, I imaging in summer this would be pot luck to whether you'd meet another car and have a 500m reverse or not!”

    One parking space on an incline, which was often parked in by others. Outdoor decking is dirty, covered in debris which has not been cleaned since autumn. The banister on the desking is rotten and would probably snap if you were to lean on it. The chairs and table outside (on both decks) are dirty and rusty. Windows are filthy, both internal (covered in previous dogs slaver) and externally. Moving into the property, sofas are damaged and worn, general cleanliness is shocking - large clumps of ...

    One parking space on an incline, which was often parked in by others. Outdoor decking is dirty, covered in debris which has not been cleaned since autumn. The banister on the desking is rotten and would probably snap if you were to lean on it. The chairs and table outside (on both decks) are dirty and rusty. Windows are filthy, both internal (covered in previous dogs slaver) and externally. Moving into the property, sofas are damaged and worn, general cleanliness is shocking - large clumps of previous dog hair, dirty/dusty skirtings, marks on walls and furniture, sand on floors, stairs carpet dirty and stained. TV in main lounge does not pick up most channels - had to change remote batteries. In kitchen ceiling spot lights not working, fridge has a damaged seal so struggles to cool, oven has had all symbols rubbed away so difficult to use. Kitchen window and blind are filthy, kitchen door handle broken. Outdoor area to rear was covered in leaves, twigs and general mess. Door leading to this area had a broken handle. Hot tub cover was covered in bird mess... luxury this area was not! Upstairs, again floors, windows and furniture dirty. Bed was 'okay' I'm not sure its a kingsize though like advertised - two singles pushed together. Main bedroom door handle broken so couldn't close door - balcony out of bedroom glass railing was filthy and seats were rusty. The house in general could do with a good clean and refresh. Overall disappointing!

The property

Tehidy sits on the Towan Valley Resort, on the outskirts of Porthtowan, Cornwall.

This contemporary abode enjoys a private garden with hot tub and is situated just half a mile from the beach, ideal for a family getaway in any season.

After parking up in the off-road parking space, head through the front door into the lounge, where you can take a seat on the sofa and kick back in front of the Smart TV.

Move through into the kitchen, where you’ll find a range of appliances, including an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and even a washing machine, so there’s no need to bring your whole wardrobe!

Round off the evening with a dip in the hot tub before freshening up in the bathroom and whisking off to bed.

The master provides a super-king-size with zip/link beds, whilst there is also a king-size with zip/link beds, plus a double, each wonderfully presented.

Head into the centre of Porthtowan, a delightful village offering a choice of pubs and shops, and of course, a stunning sandy beach backed by imposing cliffs.

Lace up your walking boots and take the pooch out for a wander along the South West Coast Path, spanning further along the St Agnes Heritage Coast, stopping to capture photos of historical sites, including Trevaunance Cove, and appreciating glorious coastal vistas.

Make a stop off in the village of St Agnes with its many shops and cafés, or head to nearby Perranporth for its golden sands and excellent surfing conditions.

Further afield, visit Cornwall’s only city, Truro, or head to the sub-tropical domes of the Eden Project, a must for garden lovers.

Choose Tehidy for a wonderful break to Cornwall.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

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.
