Acreditation Porthcothan House

Luxury self-catering holiday home near Padstow in North Cornwall

Welcome to Porthcothan House, a lovely Georgian farmhouse on the North Coast, mid-way between Watergate Bay and Padstow, 600 yards from Porthcothan beach, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a few minutes from the Coast Path, Trevose and some of Cornwall’s finest beaches, gardens and restaurants.

Constantly refurbished, spacious, light, full of character and with a lovely atmosphere, it has everything for a really special holiday – at any time of year.

Relax in a blissful Savoir No2 Bed, the original 'Savoy Bed', absorbing the view of the valley and coast as you ponder the day's big decisions: do you surf at Constantine, walk some spectacular coastline, play golf or tennis at Trevose, have cream tea at Bedruthan Steps or treat yourself at Rick Stein’s, Jamie Oliver’s or Nathan Outlaw's. Or do you stroll down for a peaceful day on Porthcothan beach ... paddling in the sea ... and wiggling your toes in warm sand.

For a wonderful holiday, celebration or relaxing short break – with all your family ... and friends ... or just for two.

"We came here yesterday and we love it .. a fine house with space and a sort of immemorial peace. We can see the sea and hear the sound of it .. all at last is well."

(DH Lawrence who rented the house in 1915-16)
