Nestled on the outskirts of the pretty Cornish seaside village of Porthtowan, up a windy track, this very special barn is the ideal 'get away from it all' destination. The Old Piggery is a picture-perfect semi-detached property and will delight either a small family or couple simply wanting that extra bit of space, and there's room for your loyal pup too. If you need to do some work whilst away, there is also Superfast Broadband available so you can have a quick catch up if you need to.
Tucked into a little sheltered private setting, this well presented home-from-home has oodles of parking right outside. Leading up from the parking-area step into the open plan living-room and take a 'pew' for a moment or two, and you will instantly feel at home. Comfy sofas can be found creating a wonderful ambience. Step up into the galley kitchen/diner, the foodies will love the modern kitchen where seafood feasts and hearty breakfasts can be prepared. Leading off from the sitting-room you'll find your two very comfortable bedrooms and family shower-room. Outside, there is a useful cold shower, ideal for washing wetsuits, surfboards and muddy paws. The sunny sheltered garden, reached via a little pathway to the side of the barn, is perfect for a morning coffee listening to the birdsong.
The golden sandy beach and blue surfing seas of Porthtowan are a 20 minute walk away. After a busy day on this gorgeous beach, why not head to the beachside Blue Bar, a great spot to enjoy an indulgent hot chocolate or chilled glass of wine. 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 four-legged friend. After a fun filled day soaking up the Cornish sun and building sandcastles on the beach there is nothing nicer than enjoying locally-caught fish and chips on the beach wall whilst watching the sun set.
A short drive away, along the coastal road, is St Agnes; a vibrant and very colourful coastal village with a fantastic butcher, local craft shops brimming with temptation and lots of yummy 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.
For those wishing to explore further afield, the Eden Project, the popular seaside resort of St Ives, the shopping city of Truro and the maritime town of Falmouth all make an easy day excursion and are just a short drive away.
The Old Piggery really is a super retreat and is ideal for families or couples wanting a seaside break where beaches and surf are only a short distance away.
