Our guide to Porthtowan holiday cottages

Slap bang in the heart of Poldark country, Porthtowan is all about wide sandy beaches, windswept clifftop walks and a true experience of Cornwall. Set on the unspoilt west coast of the county, Porthtowan sits in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and its sandy Blue Flag beach has made it a firm favourite with families as well as with the surfing community.
