Towan Beach Chalet

Chalet -
2 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 6
Portscatho, Roseland Peninsula, Truro District, Cornwall, England
This secluded, extra-comfortable and carefully maintained self-catering chalet — a perfect refuge in summer and winter alike — is hidden away in a corner of one of Cornwall’s most unspoiled and beautiful areas, the Roseland Peninsula, bordered on one side by the famous sailing waters of the Carrick Roads, on the other by the English Channel.

The chalet offers a spacious, triple-aspect living/dining room with a wood-burner and with French doors giving onto a full-width west-facing verandah (just perfect for that evening drink), a well-equipped kitchen, two bathrooms, including one en suite, and two bedrooms — a double-bedded master bedroom, and a second bedroom with two single bunks (there is also a drop-down double bed in the living/dining room, cunningly disguised as a bookcase!) With state-of-the-art insulation in walls, floors and ce...

We loved this challet. Half the price of others we have stayed in but very comfortable and homely. We stayed for 11 days and were worried we would get bored but we didn't and could have stayed longer. It has a lovely balcony/terrace that looks...More

About the neighbourhood
Rightly designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Roseland offers a magnificent unspoiled landscape of woods, fields and lanes girdled by a shoreline of coves, cliffs and sandy beaches made easily accessible by the famous South West Coastal Path. There are special treasures here like the round houses at Veryan, the uniquely beautiful waterside church of St. Just-in-Roseland with its sub-tropical churchyard, the ancient King Harry Ferry — and a goodly sprinkling of fine country inns offering tasty food. The quaint conjoined villages of Portscatho and Gerrans are an easy walk away along a bridleway or along the SW Coastal Path. A little further afield are the chalk-and-cheese towns of Falmouth and Truro — the bustling Bohemian port and the graceful county capital (bring your own... more

How to get there
Airport: Newquay: 40.0 km
Railway: Truro: 25.0 km
The M5 motorway and then the A30 — near-motorway standard for practically all of the 75 miles that you are on it — take you right down the spine of the southwestern peninsula until you peel off onto traditional Cornish roads and lanes for the final 20 miles to the chalet in its secluded setting within earshot of a splendid sandy beach.

It is also possible to travel by train (to St. Austell or Truro) or by air (to Newquay or Exeter) — but a hire car is then a must: please contact us for advice.
