Set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, a stunning luxury apartment with amazing views overlooking Porthcurno and Ped-n-Vounder beaches which combine to create one of the most photographed views in Cornwall and a location which has been consistently voted by travel journalists as featuring one of the best beaches in the world. Ocean View is a luxurious, two bedroom apartment which is perched on the very top of the cliffs overlooking this iconic vista and available for rent throughout the year. This corner apartment has the benefit of entry via just three steps but the whole apartment is at 1st floor level and every window enjoys spectacular views of the Porthcurno beaches across to the Logan Rock as well as the beautiful unspoilt valley. Indeed the vast 40sq ft living space has a bank of five large picture windows around two of its sides and when you first enter this space the view is truly breathtaking. The elevated position means you can relax in peace and enjoy the views even when having that early morning cup of tea in bed. One of eight newly constructed high spec apartments, Ocean View is one of the larger units occupying a prime position within the block. The interior decoration and furnishing has been designed to a very high standard and is both stylish and extremely comfortable. For thespians, the apartment is literally just round the corner from the world famous Minack Theatre which has been hewn from the granite cliff face and offers a wide range of productions during the summer months – not to mention the stunning sunsets. Ocean View is also just five minutes’ walk from the South West Coastal Path and is the perfect base for exploring the diverse and spectacular coastal scenery with the added thrill of spotting dolphins, basking sharks and other wildlife. This area is a joy for the keen cyclist with endless lanes and tracks lined with hedgerows bursting with wild flowers and birdlife. For experienced and novice surfers alike, Porthcurno provides excellent conditions with the famous surfing beach of Sennen Cove only 3 miles away. There is also a pub (normally closed during the winter months)and local tennis courts for hire together with a small café/beach shop (200 yards from the apartment) which serves lovely cream teas and sublime crab sandwiches.The cafe/shop operates seasonal opening hours normally from easter onwards. There is a Post Office and general stores in the neighbouring village which is a short drive of 5-10 mins. The atmospheric award winning Logan Rock Inn is just a five minute drive or 25 minute walk along the cliffs. On a rainy day, The Telegraph Museum is a “must visit” for boys (and Dads!). Considered to be a critical communications centre during the Second World War, it is a living museum deep underground and consists of a series of tunnels and operation rooms frozen in time.

The world Famous Minack Theatre sits precariously on the very cliff edge and is real testimony to the sheer grit and determination of the founder Rowena Cade who personally and almost single handily, carved this stunning theatre from the granite cliffs over a 30 year period from 1929 until her retirement in 1993. She regularly dug sand from the beach and carried it up the cliffs on her back in a self made rucksack. At one time after a massive storm and wreck, Rowena Cade personally carried twelve 15ft timber beams up from the beach to the site of the theatre. Today the 750 seater open air auditorium with gallery, cafe and museum attracts visitors from all over the world to experience a summer season of plays in this truly unique setting. You can experience live theatre as you never have before when you holiday with us in Porthcurno. Our Cornish cottages are conveniently located near the best attractions in the area; you will love your holiday when you stay in one of our Porthcurno properties .
As a major cable station and with direct links to Churchill's war rooms in London, Porthcurno was an obvious enemy target during the Second World War and so tunnels were cut into the cliffs by local tin miners and the communications operations were moved inside. The underground tunnel took ten months to complete and was fully equipped with a power plant and blast-proof doors. Today the tunnel and the equipment have all been preserved and the museum is a fascinating insight into wartime communications and the major part that Porthcurno played in winning the war.
With so many attractions to see and things to do you may never even make it to the sandy beaches that surround Porthcurno. Of course if you do, youâll be visiting some of the most beautiful beaches Cornwall has to offer.
With great attractions, sandy beaches, and the best Cornish cottages available, when you holiday with us in Porthcurno, youâll have the holiday of a lifetime!
