Porthtowan - Set in narrow winding valley flanked by impressive granite cliffs is the seaside village of Porthtowan which has a great beach and a wealth of heritage. Its name comes from the Cornish words "porth" and "tewynn" to mean landing place at the sand dunes. Porthtowan is a relatively un-commercialized village renowned for its superb surfing and beautiful Blue Flag beach. Designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), along the coast are Gullyn Rock, Diamond Rock and sandstone and slate cliffs. Porthtowan itself has a small selection of shops for day to day needs and there is also a well regarded restaurant/pub called the Blue Bar on the edge of the beach with stunning views over it.

History - A little over a century ago the scene was very different. Mining flourished with the most notable mine, the Wheal Towan copper mine, generating incredible wealth and owned by Ralph Allen Daniell of Trelissick. Located just to the north of Porthtowan at Chapel Porth is the Towan Roath engine house, the archetypal Cornish mine dramatically positioned on the cliffs overlooking the beach.

Truro - Truro is renowned for its excellent shopping centre, fine selection of restaurants, bars, private and state schools and main line railway link to London (Paddington). The Hall for Cornwall is also a popular venue providing all year round entertainment and other cultural facilities include the Royal Cornwall Museum and the historic Cathedral. Newquay Airport is on the North Coast with its daily links to London Gatwick Airport.
