Enjoy your Cornwall stay in a Porthtowan holiday cottage
Located on the northern coast of Cornwall, between Newquay and St Ives, the pretty village of Porthtowan is a great choice for visitors who want to experience unspoilt Cornwall. Choose from spending the day on the beach, or discovering more about the area's fascinating heritage and culture when you stay in Porthtowan accommodation.
For centuries, Cornwall's main industry was the mining of metals. Today, visitors can see artisans creating beautiful items of jewellery before their eyes at Cornwall Gold. Using locally-sourced precious metals and stones in the making of their peculiarly Cornish designs, this is a great place to pick up a unique souvenir of your stay. Head a few miles north to the coastal town of St Agnes, where the local museum is home to fine artworks of local dignitaries as well as other artefacts relating to the fascinating history of this part of the UK.
A day at the beach
Porthtowan's vast beach is the number one attraction for families visiting the area. The shallow bay makes the beach ideal for surfing, though the waves here can be a bit tricky for absolute beginners. Take a day trip to the King Edward Mine Museum in nearby Redruth to discover more about Cornwall's intriguing industrial heritage. See photographs of miners and mining artefacts, and watch a live demonstration of how tin was processed in the early days.
Hikers have lots of routes to choose from, whether along the dramatic coastline or inland, in nature reserves or country parks such as Tehidy. Now the largest woodland in Cornwall, walkers can follow way-marked paths through Tehidy Country Park. Kennall Vale nature reserve is another woodland, though with an interesting industrial past. The area was also home to a gunpowder factory; hikers will find themselves stumbling on the original factory buildings as they explore.
