Porthtowan in winter...

 The nights are drawing in and we are looking forward to the delights of Halloween, bonfire night and (dare I say it) Christmas.  Porthtowan has a totally different feel in the colder months - it is much quieter with a wild beauty and an almost bleak, deserted feel. The village is a fantastic place for a cheeky winter break - rental fees are at their lowest and The Unicorn, Blue Bar and beach café remain open for a warming drink or meal after an exhilarating beach or clifftop walk. Or if you prefer, don't venture out at all but enjoy the luxury of snuggling up at home and doing absolutely nothing except watching the wild seas from the comfort of the sofa...
