2 Sleeping eight in comfort, Polvenna welcomes you with its relaxed seaside atmosphere. You’ll be able to walk down the coastal path to the wonderful beach at Porthtowan, and enjoy barbecues with the most amazing views towards Godrevy lighthouse in the distance.

Polvenna overlooks Porthtowan beach and has dramatic sea views along the coast. The property is a modern retreat, fully detached and set in its own generously proportioned and very sunny terraced garden. The interior has an open and airy feel, and is laid out over three levels. All of the living areas, as well as the decked terrace and lawn, share the same sweeping view of the coast. A short walk away is Porthtowan’s Blue Flag award winning beach, which is great for families as well as being one of Cornwall’s most popular surfing destinations. Both Polvenna and the beach are set in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).

Inside Polvenna Beach House

Polvenna is decorated in bright white, beachy blues and soft linen greys, with fresh wooden floors throughout and an easygoing coastal style. The open plan living space is ideal for relaxed coastal living — with the kitchen, dining and lounge areas all sharing the same far-reaching views of the sea and Cornwall’s North Coast. An array of sofas will seat up to eight in comfort and a cosy wood-burner will make nights in a delight for out-of-season breaks. The delightful kitchen is newly fitted with integrated worktops and plenty of storage as well as lots of equipment for those who enjoy serious holiday cooking. All bedroom are a good size, with the two double rooms benefiting from sea glimpses from eye-level Velux windows. A family bathroom and one en suite complete the accommodation.

Outside and surrounds

Polvenna is set in the front row of three small avenues of private residences called East Cliff, which looks down over Porthtowan beach. The property is fully detached and set in a lawned and terraced garden. You can step directly from the living area onto wooden decking for lounging, al fresco dining and barbecues. A nearby footpath connects you directly to the beach and village (please note that the path is steep), as well to the The South West Coast Path, which is particularly stunning in this stretch, extending eastward to pretty Chapel Porth and beyond to St Agnes and westward to Portreath, Godrevy and St Ives Bay.

Things we love…

Polvenna makes an ideal beach retreat for a larger family, or, with its two double and two twin bedrooms, for two families to share. There is plenty of space in both the house and the garden, so you can be as sociable or as private as you choose, and the beach is accessible by foot, so party members can come and go as they please without relying on the car unless you want to. There are a couple of great beach bar/cafés, a good pub and a handy shop near the beach, and even a surf school. Of course the setting is spectacular with a beach that feels endless at low tide, and miles of coast path on hand for walkers.

A great house and a great spot
We have had a lovely week here in Polvenna. The views are wonderful and the beach here is great especially at low tide, so much to explore on your doorstep, or a short drive away. We loved Holywell Beach especially. A great house and a great spot.
