The outstretched arms of the Cornish seaside town Porth are waiting to welcome you for a good holiday with its many farmhouses, self-catering barns, boats and beaches. Here, you can roam freely and explore this exquisite haven of peace and tranquillity. Attached to the northern corner of surf-friendly Newquay is Porth and its cove of golden sands backed by cliffs where wild flowers flourish and canes intrigue visitors. The South West coastal path skirts around Porth Cove and verges at the point with Padlock Bridge. Lots of holidaymakers walk further along the cliff tops for the magnificent sea views.

Cornwall is special
There is a certain sacredness here in Cornwall, a strong connection with the universe… worries, anxieties, stress, chaos and dark thoughts are absorbed into the timelessness of the oceans, mountains and trees, lifting them away for a while so as you can stop to feel the breath of Mother Nature, the breath of life…all that is beautiful, loving, warm and safe…. It is little wonder that so many Cornish villages are named after saints.
Breath in that fuel for the soul and feel your love of life re-ignite in a way that can only be explained once you have stayed here… once you have climbed the Bedruthan Steps and viewed the rugged Cornish coastline or watched the ocean waves crashing against the cliffs or until you have seen a halo of mountains colouring the edge of the beach or awoke to see a quintessential Cornish row boat bobbing on the speckles of sun-drenched water, its ageing wood revealing its age, it’s paint flaking and curling like a newly peeled apple…watch as it sits waiting, dreaming of sailing out into the blue yonder. Walk to the edge of the shore and listen to the soft rippling waves which trundle in…their feather-like tips spreading out far and wide like a fine lace blanket beneath your feet…so quiet, yet they have their own distinct little whisper. Perhaps they are carrying the voices of people you have loved and lost…close your eyes and remember the sweet excited bark of your old dog, the voice of your mother calling you for lunch, your father rustling his newspaper...such happy memories which make you feel content and loved. Yes, frowns turn into smiles here and flesh starts to tingle with excitement, inspiration and contentment. Rent a holiday cottage in Porth and you will understand what people mean when they say “there is no place quite like it”. Come feel the cold, salty kiss of the ocean…you cannot say you know Porth unless you have stayed here for a short while…
