Beachcomber: 2-Bedroom Holiday Apartment

Porthcurno, Land's End, West Cornwall

Self catering apartment, Porthcurno, dogs welcome

"Beachcomber" is a 2-bedroomed apartment in an attractive building, once part of the Cable & Wireless training school. It's situated in the picturesque valley of Porthcurno within a short, level walk of one of the most spectacular beaches in the country as shown here. It's just ¼ mile from the famous Minack Theatre. Land's End and the sandy, surfing beach at Sennen Cove are just 3 miles away. Porthcurno beach cafe and the Cable Station Inn are within walking distance.  Beachcomber is underneath Top Deck so if you wanted to be close to other family or friends they would be ideal to book together.

Directions

When you reach Penzance stay on the A30 and follow the signs for Land's End. Approximately 3 miles outside Penzance take the left turn signposted to the Minack. Drive through St. Buryan and continue (watching out for the hairpin bend!) until you see a left turn signposted to Porthcurno. Drive down into the valley - Zodiac House is the white building on the righthandside opposite the tennis courts. There is a gate across the entrance - for loading and unloading purposes only it is possible to drive through this gate. To find Beachcomber go through the side gate and the entrance is just inside on the left. The car park is opposite the apartments and the allocated parking space is to the left of the post marked "1".

Dogs Welcome

To try and prevent any owners from changing their minds about accepting dogs, it would be helpful if you could have a look at the following suggestions:

  • Don’t allow your dogs to damage furniture and fittings – bring a throw if you know they will go on furniture or beds
  • Clean up any dog hair
  • Don’t leave dogs in the property alone if you know they are likely to scratch the paintwork or bark incessantly
  • Pick up after your pets in the garden
  • Bring a towel to wipe your pet if they get wet or muddy
  • Ensure that dogs arrive free of fleas and freshly groomed to ensure there are no lingering smells

Beachcomber has its own patio and its just minutes from Porthcurno beach and the coastal path.  Suitable for a maximum of two dogs unless they are very small.  There are beaches within walking distance which are not subject to the dog ban. Tide tables are available

Dog friendly information for the area

All the properties on this site are situated either adjacent or just minutes away from a network of paths including the main coastal path.

Some beaches ban dogs from Easter to the end of September but allow dogs on the beach in the early morning and evening. The rules in St. Ives are being changed to ban dogs all year round on most of their beaches. Beaches nearby which do accept dogs all year round are Nanjizel, Pedn Vounder, Gwenver, Priests Cove, Boat Cove, Portheras Cove, Long Rock, and Porthkidney Sands . See map for current arrangements.
