Summary

Porthcothan House is an elegant Georgian farmhouse in a wonderful position overlooking Porthcothan beach. Faithfully restored and let since 2005 it is perfect for a luxury family holiday, special occasion or short break. DH Lawrence described itas "a fine large house with clear rooms and such lovely silence, a faint sound of the sea and such peace I could cry".

Guests describe the house as a magical place with light and airy rooms, a wonderful atmosphere, lovely views and in a perfect location (600m from Porthcothan beach, 3 miles from Watergate Bay and 5 from Padstow). Activities of every kind are nearby - the 7 bays for 7 days, golf & tennis at Trevose, walks along the Coast Path, surfing, sailing, coasteering, cycling along the Camel Trail, fishing and any number of things to do and places to visit.

Waking in a Savoir No2 bed to the sound of a high tide. Watching the sun go down over Porthcothan beach. Watersports of all kinds with Porthcothan and 7+ sandy beaches nearby. Timeless walks along the Coastal Path up to Trevose Head, along to Harlyn and Trevone into Padstow. Mackerel fishing in the estuary. Cycling along the Camel Trail. Visiting the Eden Project, Lost Gardens of Heligan and Lanhydrock, St Michel's Mount, Tintagel and Bodmin Moor. Golf at Trevose. Returning from a thrilling winter walk along the cliffs to a warm house and cream tea in front of the fire.

There is no better place to enjoy the environs of North Cornwall than Porthcothan House. You have a fabulous beach on your doorstep but many others nearby (our favourite is Hawkers' Cove, a real gem). There is Trevose Golf course, Padstow (with the Camel Trail and lots of delicious restaurants), stunning cliff top walks and other attractions for a rainy day. The house itself is superb with excellent facilities and beds. OUR 6TH YEAR. We keep coming back because we love it so much.

The house is fabulous and has lots of space. We had a family holiday for 7 studying/writing adults and it was perfect. The atmosphere is classic Cornish farmhouse. There is everything you could need to cook up a special meal and have a celebration. It was really great to have a food delivery already put away when we arrived. The beds are wonderfully comfy and the views down to the cove enchanting. The walks are fabulous and the area has the best of Cornwall. Wild windy cliffs and some gourmet food in Padstow. The trip was a real tonic and we would all love to visit again - immediately!

We booked a family holiday of 10 to celebrate my 65th birthday and found the Owners most helpful towards everything that was needed, from organizing food to arrive before we did, babysitting for a night we were going out, restaurant recommendations, family places to visit and beaches to explore. Jane recommended a chef to cook on the birthday evening and the food was great. The house was wonderfully spacious and the kitchen a delight to work in. We cannot praise it highly enough!

Impressive accommodation In a beautiful coastal location. This beautifully restored 6 bedroom house is set back from the road behind private gates and only a short walk down to a stunning beach at Porthcothan. The beach comes into its own at low tide when a myriad of caves and coves become accessible and you get the sense of the scale and rugged beauty of the Cornish coastline. The Owner met us on arrival (those who had made it through snow!) to ensure everything was to our satisfaction. The house has a spacious open kitchen, dining room, and conservatory area with an Aga oven, though we ended up mostly using the Aga hobs. The two lounge areas gave us a space to break out into a multimedia room - essential PlayStations for the teenagers plugged into the TV and a drawing room, for piece, quiet and a little guitar strumming. The bedrooms each had amazing bespoke beds as designed for the Savoy which gave us long peaceful nights sleep (perhaps aided a little by the New Year food and drink). All in all an amazing place that exceeded everyone's expectations.
