Just yards from the coastal footpath and spectacular clifftop walks above Porthtowan beach on the rugged north Cornish coast, Ocean Retreat is the perfect bolthole for walkers, surfers and anyone who loves salty sea breezes and fabulous sandy beaches. A contemporary open plan property with a fully fitted kitchen, spacious ground floor shower-room and mezzanine bedroom area above (mind the sloping ceiling!) this is the perfect couples' retreat. Whether you want to walk the coastal footpaths, lie on the beach or grab a few waves with the local surfers, Ocean Retreat is the place for you. Just remember your wetsuits, walking boots, buckets and binoculars and you'll have the most wonderful time.
Porthtowan has a renowned surfing beach, ideal for active types and perfect for walkers and beach lovers too, with the beachside Blue Bar providing a great vantage point for those who prefer to observe the waves with a cappuccino or an ice-cold beer! There is also a wonderful beach cafe selling delicious home-cooked food, a great little surf shop that can kit you out with boards, wetsuits and lessons, and miles of sandy beach to walk along at low tide, perfect if you're bringing your canine friend. A footpath leads down the cliff from below Ocean Retreat so access is easy and you can leave your car in the private parking space all week while you walk, surf and swim to your heart's content. Footpaths lead to Portreath in one direction and St Agnes in the other, with superb panoramic views along the way. St Agnes is a bustling coastal village with shops, galleries and lots of eating places. There are plenty more great beaches within seven miles, most patrolled by lifeguards throughout the holiday season and many with cafes and bars right on the beach. The friendly owners are usually on hand to settle you in and answer any questions, then leave you in peace so you can relax and unwind.
