NEW FOR 2023. Escape! As the name suggests, it is a perfect getaway tucked away five minutes from the world famous Porthcurno beach. Relaxed and laid back this stylish Scandi-inspired beach house is dog friendly and offers comfortable accommodation with a lovely enclosed garden and a private parking space.
Set in the sleepy coastal village of Porthcurno you're a short walk from the stunning beach and the iconic Minack Theatre. A little further along the coast path you come to Pedn Vounder, an extraordinary beach voted in the top 50 in the world by the Sunday Times. This comfortable home from home is in an incredibly sought-after location and perfectly positioned to explore the west of Cornwall and beyond or simply a great base to enjoy the coastal walks on the doorstep and leave the car.
There are three comfortable bedrooms and the open living, dining and kitchen area makes a fabulous sociable space for families or friends to cook up a feast or cosy up around the wood burner on an evening. Off the living area there is a conservatory with additional living space leading out to the private garden.
Famously known for the Minack Theatre, Porthcurno is home to the entirely unique open-air theatre that’s perched up on the cliffs. With only the breathtaking and ever-changing view of the Atlantic Ocean as its backdrop, this is a truly special spot. From the beach you can even climb up the steps and rocks built into the cliff side, for an amazing panoramic view of the coastline. The beach café serves fantastic cream teas and crab sandwiches. Porthcurno is also famous for the The Porthcurno Telegraph Museum.
Located away from it all but only a short journey to some of the best the Far West of Cornwall has to offer, you’re only 10 minutes by car to the amazing Sennen and Gwenver beaches or 15 minutes to Newlyn harbour for some of the freshest seafood there is. The Logan Rock Inn at Treen is a five-minute drive, or a twenty-minute cliff walk for the more adventurous!
The open plan living area leads from the kitchen / dining areas through to the conservatory. It’s a fantastic space, perfectly furnished with comfort and relaxation in mind. The living area has the all-important wood burner to take the chill from a cooler evening and make a winter stay a joy. Sink into the comfortable sofa or armchair, stoke the fire and cosy up after a day of exploring the Far West.
The sunny conservatory is great for relaxed afternoons with a corner sofa. Open the door to the garden and let the outside in while enjoying a holiday read in the sunshine.
The mezzanine TV room is the perfect place to watch a movie or for younger ones to chill out and play games with the floor cushions and TV.

“We had a great stay at Escape. It was very comfortable for us as a family of five. It has generous & well-equipped living space and bedrooms. The location is fantastic, in walking distance to Porthcurno beach and the Minack theatre. We stayed in Oct/Nov so we got to take advantage of the wood burner, which made the house very cosy. The heating was also very efficient. I highly recommend this gem.”
