“Perfect centre for teenage grandchildren and 90 year old father.”

We stayed a week with our two teenaged grandchildren (a boy and girl) and a further week with my father who is 90. The owner was most thoughtful in providing information about the house and its location in advance, and Porthtowan is a great place from which to explore Cornwall by bus or car or on foot across the cliffs.

The property is fantastically well equipped with plenty of crockery and cutlery and the table expands to seat 10 comfortably. More books and DVDs than you could ever want if the weather is bad and toys for younger children. So nice too to have a full freezer and some bottles of wine on arrival - you replace what you have used during the stay.

The garden is perfect for breakfasting outside and the balcony wonderful fora glass of wine in the evening sun with a view of the sea.

Level access from the road for my father via a very narrow gate was ideal.

“Excellent cottage and a pleasure to stay there”
Reviewed 26 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

There were 7 family members who stayed at Mortreth Cottage to attend a family wedding at the Blue Bar. The Cottage was excellent and was equipped with everything anyone could possibly need. A very nice touch with some starting essentials ready for us in the fridge, including many bottles of wine available to 'use and replace'. The front of the Cottage is a lovely sun trap and we spent a couple of afternoons soaking up the glorious sun (with cream teas of course!). The addition of free Wi-Fi and a smart TV was brilliant because Porthtowan itself does not have a good mobile signal so this proved to be a godsend for my sons and their partners. The owner was communicative throughout and very relaxed and our deposit was returned immediately. Lovely beach just a few minutes stroll away, along with the Blue Bar, coffee shops and a convenience store and post office. I would recommend the Victory Inn pub just a few minutes away for lovely food. We all had a great time and we would definitely recommend staying at Mortreth Cottage.
