Situated on the South Coast, just outside St Austell, Porthpean Golf Cottages are perfect for sampling the many delights of the Cornish Riviera, you’re sure to find something to suit all ages and interests.
Cornwall boasts some of the UK’s finest beaches. Porthpean beach is within walking distance of the cottages. The beautiful St. Austell Bay is also on the door step.
The spectacular North coast provides an exhilarating backdrop of dramatic rugged coastline and sandy beaches. The South coast on the other hand offers a quainter, more laid back atmosphere.
Explore traditional fishing villages such as Fowey with its maze of narrow streets that climb from the harbour up through the village or wander into Mevagissey, the largest working fishing port in St. Austell Bay, where cob cottages spill down the steep valley into to the harbour walls.
The more energetic among you can take advantage of Porthpean Golf Course, cycling, horse riding, fishing, watersports and Porthpean Sailing Club all within walking distance. Walkers are in for a real treat with the famous Cornish Coastal footpath, one of the most beautiful in England passing within 250 yds of the cottages you can enjoy miles of marvellous walks, beautiful coves and breathtaking panoramic views. We recommend visiting the beautiful headlands of Gribbin Head and Black Head.
If it’s an account of Cornish seafaring you’re after then Charlestown Shipweck and Heritage Centre tells the history of diving, salvage and shipwrecks. The world famous and multi award winning Eden Project is only a short drive away. You could complete your botanical experience with a visit to the Lost Gardens of Heligan or gardens of Trewithen, Boconnoc, Caerhays and Lanhydroch.
