A sandy cove strewn with mussel shells and calm estuary waters form your backdrop at this beach side hideaway perched above Porthilly Beach.

Occupying one of the rare positions above Porthilly Cove, Trethwaite boasts beautiful views across the Camel Estuary and is within easy reach of everything Rock has to offer.

Trethwaite is one of just a handful of properties nestled above the hidden gem of Porthilly. Nestled just around the corner from Rock, this is one of the area's best kept secrets. Look out for baskets filled with seafood on the beach: this is where the famous Porthilly mussels and oysters are farmed. A tiny stream bubbles its way along the footpath, down a tiny waterfall and along the beach to the sea; perfect for children to splash in. The idyllic church of St Michael's is set just above the beach, with benches outside for enjoying a relaxing moment with the view.

From the doorstep, all forms of water sports can be enjoyed. The Rock Sailing and Water Ski Club and Camel Ski School are close-by and you can take a sea safari with Wavehunters from the pontoon. If you'd like to stay on land, the esteemed St Enodoc Golf Club is just a couple of minutes on foot.

A number of highly acclaimed restaurants are within walking distance, including Paul Ainsworth's pub The Mariners, The Dining Room, The Upper Deck and Four Boys Café. You can also catch the ferry or water taxi across to Padstow from Rock Beach. Here you can enjoy fine dining at Rick Stein's famous Seafood Restaurant or Paul Ainsworth's No. 6.
