Porthcothan Bay, Sleeps 4 (+2)
Situated in a quiet secluded location with superb uninterrupted views over the North Coast of Cornwall from Trevose Head in the north to Park Head in the south. Golden Burn Cottage Caravan is less than 5oom’s walk from Porthcothan Bay which is one of Cornwall’s finest unspoilt beaches. Both spacious and comfortable, this accommodation is ideal for both families and couples looking to get away from it all and relax in a stunning coastal location.
Nestled between Newquay and Padstow, Porthcothan Beach is a beautiful North West facing cove backed by grassy dunes. Featured in the Marine Conservation Society Good Beach Guide for 2014 you may also recognise it from BBC’s Poldark as it features as Nampara cove. Like many in Cornwall, this peaceful cove oozes atmosphere and history, even now it is easy to imagine smugglers from those Poldark days coming ashore with their ill gotten goods.
At low tide the beach opens out to connect with smaller coves leaving plenty of wide open spaces for families to take full advantage of. At high tide, it is sheltered by the surrounding cliffs giving it a much more private, secluded feel.
With the South West Coast Path running through Porthcothan Bay, the surrounding area is easily accessible, where you can enjoy the spectacular panoramic views. The beach has its own small shop with a reasonable sized council carpark right opposite the beach. However if you fancied stretching your legs a bit further, National Trust’s Bedruthan Steps offering stunning clifftop views, is approx 45min walk (2.1 miles).
Padstow is just a 16min drive away offering a plethora of restaurants, cafe’s, pubs and many wonderful boutique shops. Rick Stein has his infamous restaurant, cafe and cookery school whilst also available during the summer months are boat trips, sea life tours and guided walks.
In the opposite direction is Newquay (8.7 miles away). Larger than Padstow, Newquay is the surfer’s mecca during the summer. Even if you’re not into catching the waves, you can always chill out on the beach or paddle in the shallows. With plenty of shops and eateries it’s the perfect place to while away a day taking in the sea air.
