Lovely large self catering holiday accommodation in Cornwall for up to 17 people.

Situated in Churchtown, the centre of St. Agnes village, the Porthvean provides all you would expect for a comfortable and relaxing stay by the sea.
The building itself is old - it was the White Hart over 200 years ago, with parts of the property about twice that age. Behind our small private car park (space for 4 or 5 cars) are buildings which are owned by the National Trust. Also at the rear is a decked barbecue area.

At the front is a small terrace, sunny and sheltered, an ideal vantage point for local events such as the Carnival, Flora Dances and Victorian Street Fayre, or just sit with a drink and watch the world go by. (There are a further 2 private parking spaces here, between the terrace and the street.)

Our 7 bedrooms are nicely appointed, warm, comfortable and arranged thus:
Front: top floor - kingsize double with two single beds, kingsize double
first floor - superking double with a single bed, kingsize double

Back: first floor - superking double, superking double, twin

Some are quite versatile in the bed arrangements with the use of ziplink superking doubles which offer the opportunity to split to two singles. You should specify which arrangement will suit your party. Six rooms have their own en suite shower, washbasin and WC and a couple of them will take a cot without being too cramped. The seventh bedroom (twin bedded) has its own wash basin and is next to the bathroom. They all have flat screen TV's with Freeview, hair dryers and heaters that you control. Off the main landing is the bathroom with a bath for those who prefer it, shower, washbasin and WC.

Should the weather be unkind, the lounge bar has a real log fire to cheer you. With its TV, satellite, DVD and music system, this makes a very comfortable centre of the house. Here, the bar counter lets you play host with its useful servery for liquid refreshment! Chiller and icemaker compliment this area. Adjoining the lounge is another room with a piano and some card tables - ideal for those games of chess, cards, jigsaw puzzles etc. a sing song, or just a quiet sit with a good book. At the other end of the house is a small games room and then relax in the hot tub and sauna.

The dining room provides a large table to seat you all (complete with baby seats if needed), and in the kitchen you will find most of the modern appliances you might need - dishwasher, gas hob, double electric ovens, food processor, freezer, microwaves, fridges, toasters etc. We are told that the kitchen is particularly well-equipped for the needs of a large party. By the downstairs back door are a washing machine, tumble dryer, trouser press, small drying area and another loo.

There is free WiFi internet access throughout the Porthvean.

The Porthvean is our home and we hope that you, too, will feel at home.

Fab place to stay

By Nicola P on 08-Oct-2018

We stayed here for a week as a large family of 16 (9 adults and 7 kids). It was fab. St Agnes is lovely with lots of pub and great beaches there and nearby. The house is really spacious. We could all get round the dining table and the kitchen is set up for mass catering! 3 microwaves and 2 large ovens and two large toasters so you can toast 8 slices of bread at once. There's s playroom with pool table and darts and best of all...a sauna and spa...perfect after the beach or a day walking. There's a bar and big lounge too. Cannot recommend enough

Wonderful location for a family getaway or friend reunion

By Leo on 13-Aug-2018

Very family/group friendly and LARGE home set in the centre of a quintessentially Cornish village, with 14th century church opposite (we saw two weddings), bakery to the left, traditional butcher opposite and fruit and vegetable store and grocers to the right. Also, next door, an awesome and very accommodating pub. And a fantastic, beautiful, and uncrowded beach 10 minutes down the hill and amazing cliff walks which we did almost daily. Geoff was a very friendly and extremely helpful but unobtrusive host. Absolutely no complaints and highly recommended, we'll be back!

Fabulous family house

By Mazza on 04-Jun-2017

I would really recommend Porthvean having recently spent a week with all my family (8 adults and 6 children). The house has everything you need for a family holiday, huge well equipped kitchen, big lounge and dining table big enough for everyone. Bedrooms all ensuite bar one which had a bathroom next door. The family loved the hot tub and games room. St Agnes is a lovely village with a pub next door, proper village shops and places to eat. We were lucky enough to be there on bank holiday Monday where a Victorian Fayre took place right outside our house! It was great fun to sit on our own terrace and watch, especially the band and an auction of pasties raising an amazing amount of money for charity. If you are sensitive to noise, maybe choose a rear bedroom as Cornish delivery men seem to arrive extremely early in the morning! All in all a fab week.
