A stylish penthouse apartment overlooking Newquay’s Porth Sands

This modern beachside penthouse is a Cornish apartment that’ll make daytrippers to Porth beach jealous. It offers views of the sea and the setting sun from its balcony, is just a few steps off the sands and has downstairs storage for surfboards and buckets and spades. What those daytrippers can’t see, however, is just how lovely the place is inside. This two-bed apartment has been recently refurbished to a high standard to provide accommodation that’s as stylish and comfortable as it is convenient for the beach.

If you’re looking for self-catering accommodation on Cornwall’s surf-tastic north coast, you couldn’t do much better. 6 Porth Sands sits in prime position on the top floor of a small apartment building overlooking Porth Beach, a family-friendly bay at the eastern end of Newquay. It’s midway between the breakers and surf schools of Fistral Beach and Watergate Bay, each under a 10-minute drive away or a stunning walk via the South West Coast Path. What all this means is the apartment suits all sorts of guests; families and couples, surfers and walkers – plus those who just want to relax with an unbeatable view.

To that end, the apartment is flexibly furnished with a second bedroom that can be configured as a twin or a super-king. Along with the two bedrooms, which both have their own TVs, there are two bathrooms, so there’s plenty of space whether you're a family or a group of friends. Or perhaps you’ll come with just one significant other? This place definitely has romantic appeal, with a grown-up colour palette, lighting and textures, as well as those sunset views. They are hard to miss from the open-plan living space which combines a well-equipped kitchen, dining space and living room all opening via bi-folding doors to the balcony.

This is a contemporary apartment with mod cons but, thanks to its position on the coast, it still offers a quintessentially Cornish holiday experience. For more of that, step outside and head to the Gwenna Teahouse for a Cornish cream tea or to the Hole in The Wall for a locally-made ice cream. There are plenty of places for fish and chips, a pub on the sands and buzzy central Newquay is just a 25-minute walk away.



The apartment consists of two bedrooms, two bathrooms, an open plan living area with bifold doors to a balcony with stunning views over the bay. Each bedroom has quality mattresses with luxury linen and a smart Tv. The lounge has comfy seating where you can just sit and watch the sea, a smart Tv, DVD, Wii, books, games and plenty of films. The kitchen has everything you need to cook a roast dinner, plus a dish washer, full size fridge/freezer and a washer/dryer. And have we mentioned there is an outside shower and surf store? There will also be a welcome tray to greet you

The Owner Says

Porth Sands is a very special place for us. We love walking the South West Coast Path and luckily it passes right by the front door! This sandy beach is nestled at the end of Porth and is a place to escape, enjoy the surf, watch the winter storms and breath!

The flat is in a beautiful location, facing the beach and the most glorious sunsets! It is convenient for many of Cornwall’s tourist attractions, and is equipped to the highest standards. I wholeheartedly recommend it.

All we could wish for

All we could wish for on our beach holiday. Beautiful sunsets watched from the balcony. Beach literally steps away. Fab tea rooms opposite where we had a lovely lunch. Coffee shop and ice cream also literally on the beach. Everybody was so friendly and helpful. Hope to return for a second helping at some point.

Wonderful apartment, great location

A wonderful apartment in a great location. Provided a great base for us visiting the beach at Porth and nipping into Newquay itself which was only a short walk up the coastal path. The apartment had all items required for our stay (such as fully stocked kitchen utensils and equipment) and the ground floor surf store was very handy for storing beach items. We'd definitely recommend and hope to stay here again.

Worth waiting for - pure luxury!

Well, where do I start... It was worth waiting for. The apartment was stunning from the decor of the lounge area to all the best a kitchen could offer. Then the cleanliness of the bedrooms and bathrooms was 100%, and the added extras in there were fantastic. Words cannot describe the view from the balcony and the evening sunset, so tranquil and breathtaking. Our stay from beginning to end was pure luxury, hassle-free and every last detail had been taken care of by yourselves. Thank you for making our holiday better than we could have ever imagined.

Spacious and well-equipped

The property was spacious and well-equipped. The balcony and lounge had great views overlooking Porth Beach. The beds were comfy and parking was next to the main entrance. Overall I would recommend it as a base for walkers and those wishing to drive to local attractions.
