Part of the original farmhouse, the kind of beautifully proportioned, traditional Cornish farmhouse that you might find in the pages of a book, this comfortable cottage is full of character, with its ivy-covered walls and walled front garden. It has a private garden at the rear of the cottage perfect for games and lounging alike. Porth Farm House sleeps up to five, but can be combined with the adjoining Towan Cottage to accommodate a larger party of up to eight adults. The cottage Nearby is the slightly larger property Porth Barn and a little further down a narrow track Penhaligon's provides a cosy retreat for two.
The delights of Towan Beach are just five minutes walk from the cottage and a perfect place to relax. Children will love exploring the rock pools at nearby Porthcurnick beach at low tide. If it’s an old fashioned beach holiday that you are after then Porth is the spot.
The combination of cliffs, creeks, estuaries, headlands, woods and beaches linked by many miles of footpath, gives a fantastic variety of walking routes. Pick your route to suit your mood, as well as the weather! For a slower pace sit back and enjoy the spectacular views from nearby St Anthony Head and everything the Roseland peninsula has to offer.
Close by is the village of Portscatho; during the 18th and 19th Centuries it was an ideal base for the pilchard fleets, it’s still a fishing port today but on a much smaller scale. Here you will find several shops, restaurants and pubs along with art galleries.
