“Lovely apartment with a fantastic view”

This is a beautifully furnished apartment with an amazing view of the beach and surrounding cliffs. All three bedrooms are spacious with comfortable beds and everything needed is provided. It's only a short walk to the lovely beach. We spent a very enjoyable week here and never felt the need to take the car out to go anywhere else.

“Great location!”
Reviewed 26 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Great apartment, beautifully decorated and bright and spacious. 3 good size bedrooms and damn comfy beds. Slept better here than I have in a long time, although I think the sea air helped! Very much home from home as everything covered in welcome pack. Would definitely come back. Porthtowan is great for teenage kids to wonder freely and enough choices to pick from when they get hungry. Highly recommend the ice creams from the hut mext to the surf cafe particularly the salted caramel ice cream in honeycomb cone - divine!

“Sublime - much better than home from home!”
Reviewed 7 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We needed a place to stay to attend our daughter's wedding on the beach. Our party was made up of mixed ages(the eldest being 80) and varying fitness levels, so it was important that the accommodation suited all our needs - though we are all fit enough to cope with a flight of stairs and the slight climb from the beach up to the apartment. I had nothing to worry about! The facilities offered by The Cove were superb and we were able to relax beforehand in calm well appointed surroundings, get ready with ease on the day, and recuperate afterwards thanks to a great night's sleep and the opportunity to soak in the superb views. We even made use of the local hairdresser - a definite bonus.

Everything about the accommodation and the area ensured that we experienced an unforgettable wedding and the parking spaces with the flat made life so much easier. The weather even played its part and refused to rain heavily until well into the evening.

So, if you want a beautifully well-equipped peaceful space with stunning views, all the fresh air and walking you can eat and easy access by car to local towns then The Cove is a must.

Thanks for a memorable stay.

“Simply stunning!”
Reviewed 21 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

I booked the apartment at fairly short notice as our party needed a base for an ultra marathon running event that my husband was participating in.

The online booking process was straightforward and the direct communication between the owners and myself prior to our arrival was excellent. The apartment can only be described as stunning. Very well equipped and beautifully decorated, furnished and presented. It suited our needs perfectly.

As we were only there for a short stay and specific purpose, sadly we didn't have much time to explore Porthtowan itself but the beach is within easy walking distance and we enjoyed a fabulous breakfast at the cafe on the beach front. We also noticed a pub and a convenience store, both a short walk from the apartment.

Unfortunately for us, the weather was terrible all weekend and we decided to cut short our stay by one night due to the impending arrival of storm Imogen, which gave Cornwall such a battering. Watching the storm roll in from the warmth, comfort and safety of the apartment was pretty spectacular though!

My husband and I plan to return another time for a longer stay and, fingers crossed, good weather so that we can make the most of the beautiful sandy beach, surrounding coastal path walks and other local attractions.

I would definitely recommend this apartment to friends and family and look forward to a return visit.
