About this property

New for 2022. Wonderfully positioned between Newquay and Watergate Bay, the seaside village of Porth with its beautiful beach and safe swimming, is the perfect holiday destination on Cornwall’s north coast. Nestled in the village and just a couple of minutes’ walk from the beach, The Glasshouse is a luxury holiday home that is exactly the kind of place where families and friends will want to unwind after laid-back days spent down at the water or exploring the coastline.

Set within an exclusive development called ‘The Strand’, The Glasshouse is one of a small collection of town houses beautifully designed and laid out over four floors, with two fabulous balconies offering views over the village and out to sea. To the rear there is a landscaped tiered garden that is perfect for alfresco dining and outdoor entertaining. This house also benefits from a communal garden to the front, as well as parking on a driveway and in a private garage.

Cool and contemporary, the living area and kitchen occupy the second floor, featuring an open plan layout with access to a furnished balcony to the front. The living area’s Scandi-coastal inspired furnishings include a large L-shaped sofa, arm- and rocking-chairs, as well as the dining table where breakfasts, lunches and suppers can be shared. The kitchen is spacious and very well-equipped, with access to the back garden.

On the top floor there are two lovely bedrooms, including the large master with access to its own balcony; both featuring ensuite bathrooms with walk-in showers, as well as superior beds and high-quality crisp linen meaning long, comfortable nights of sleep and lazy morning lie-ins. On the ground floor there are two more bedrooms, the double room to the rear has access to a patio area, while the front bedroom features a chalet bunk with a small double bed on the bottom. On the lower ground floor you will find the utility room and garage.

The Glasshouse is perfectly positioned for exploring all the best parts of North Cornwall. Porth features a lovely wide sandy beach that is situated in a pretty sheltered bay, making it perfect for young families, swimming and stand-up paddleboarding. It’s also a perfect spot for an evening BBQ. Down by the beach, Roo’s Beach store offers barista coffee and there is also a beach-side pub. If you want to grab a surfboard and venture forth into the waves, the renowned surfing beach at Watergate Bay is a 5-minute drive (or a 30-minute clifftop walk) to the north, and the famous surfing spot at Fistral a 10-minute drive to the south. Newquay’s three lovely surf beaches (Lusty Glaze, Tolcarne and Great Western) are also within walking distance and definitely worth a visit. These nearby beaches are well served by a range of cafes and restaurants from relaxed beach food to high-end gastronomic experiences.

A stunning modern town house over four floors, with floor to ceiling windows, and two balconies with village and sea views. Please note that the property does not have level access from the road. Access is either via a flight of external stairs to the front of the house from the drive, or through the garage where there is an internal flight of stairs from here up to the ground floor.
