Condo/Apartment /
2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 6
We are pleased to offer this lovely, well-equipped and homely self-catering accommodation in the popular little seaside resort of Porthtowan in Cornwall.

The apartment sleeps 4-6 (4 in bedrooms, 2 on an occasional-use metal-action sofa bed in lounge).

Awarded a 3* English Tourist Board rating, “Sea Echoes' is a compact ground floor apartment, which is ideally situated in the heart of Porthtowan, less than a minute's walk from the beach, but set back slightly so as not to be too near the main bustle of the village.

You will thoroughly enjoy the sea and beach views, across the car park, which can especially be enjoyed from the garden (solely used by 'Sea Echoes') – at the right time of year you will hopefully be lucky enough to see the spectacular sight of the sun setting into the sea - breathtaking.

Have stayed here twice. Cannot be beaten for value and location. Katrina immensly helpful and accommodating and two charming children as well. Little brahmas! Apartment well equipped and feels large due to substantial conservatory. Garden an absolute boon and feels very private. My parents are not very mobile and wanted seaside feel without the trawl up and down to the... more

We booked this cottage for 3 nights over a weekend for a wedding in Porthtowan. The cottage was absolutely perfect for our needs. The location is incredible, with stunning views and the beach pretty much on your door step! The owner was extremely friendly and allowed us to stay an extra night last minute. I would highly recommend this cottage... more

Management response:

Thanks so much for your great review. We do accommodate many guests who are visiting the village for weddings, as we are such a short walk to the beachside venues. We appreciate you taking the time to leave these great comments, thank you! more

Hi Jessica, thanks so much for your lovely review. We chatted about this after, and I know you put "Miss" in the review title box instead of the box where you had to enter your name, so don't worry haha! The fact you have given us a top score of 5 is the important part! We really look forward to... more
