2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 6
Porthtowan, Cornwall, England
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 very popular ground floor apartment, which is ideally situated in the heart of Porthtowan, less than a minute's walk from the beach. It is a front row property 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...

Apartment was well positioned, and had everything needed for your stay. There was a lot of noise (as walls to neighbouring apartments are not very soundproofed) which disturbed sleep and relaxation, but if you wanted to be up, out and about it wasn't a problem. Also found things not as clean as I would have hoped for, but once sorted...

Management response:

Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a review. I'm very sorry to hear it wasn't quite as clean as you'd have hoped - I spoke to you two or three times and asked if all was well and I really wish you had mentioned this to me, as cleanliness is something I am very strict on and...

Sea Echoes is a wonderful apartment to stay in. Fully equipped with everything you need. We arrived to a delicous cream tea :) The view from the garden is amazing especially at sunset. We stayed with our 3 young children and they were comfortable and entertained. Only a 2min walk to the beach and local shop, various and restaurants. The...

About the neighborhood
Porthtowan is a very popular seaside resort, more 'chilled' and less busy than some of the more famous Cornish coastal resorts. Porthtowan is very proud to be a Blue Flag beach and has also been awarded a "Seaside Award Category A - Resort Bathing Beach". This is the highest UK based award scheme recognising Porthtowan as a great beach with clean water coupled with facilities such as public toilets and car parking. Porthtowan village is suited to everyone – families, couples and singles - and it is extremely popular with surfers and body-boarders. A lovely beach anyway, but especially when the tide is out, exposing a large expanse of lovely sand and interesting rock pools for children to explore - not forgetting the sea water swimming pool hidden behind the rocks on one... more
