Location

Towan Valley is an award-winning site (Hoseasons Diamond Award Winner 2018 and Runner Up in the Cornwall category in 2019) and situated in a secluded and idyllic position on the eastern cliffs of Porthtowan just 8 miles to the north of the Cathedral City of Truro. The Resort is a short walk from the surfing paradise of Porthtowan beach, one of only seven Blue Flag beaches in Cornwall and a Seaside awardwinning beach. The site itself is sheltered in the valley with fields and cliffs providing a classic backdrop.
The coastal hotspots of St Ives, Newquay and Falmouth are easily accessible.

Description

The 12 units available are superbly designed houses sleeping between four and eight people in style and comfort. Each
house has an airy open plan living and dining area with comfortable sofas and contemporary furnishings.
Please refer to the purchasers pack for full information relating to the property including a schedule of photographs
and floor plans. The properties can let for at least 200 days per annum.
Each unit is provided with an excellent Wi-Fi system. The cabling is CAT5 and each unit has its own Internet box, and
via the Management Company, the system control data protection, and anti-virus software.
The houses were built in 2010 to 2013. During the 2019 season, hot tubs from Scarborough Spas (with filtration
systems and auto chemical distribution with Bromine frog system cartridges) have been introduced into the majority of
units which has boosted overall turnover. There is sufficient space on the decking to potentially install a further four hot
tubs to the units currently without sufficient rear space. We are advised that the units have mains water sewage and electric connected. Each unit is provided with an excellent Wi-Fi system.
