“One of our favourite places to stay”
Reviewed 24 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

We return to this part of Cornwall year on year because of the diversity of attractions, and always find something new to do. Porthtowan is beautifully situated, with a good surfing beach, lovely cliff-top walks, and good eateries.We love staying at Mortreth becuase we know we can rely upon it being its clean, comfortable, well equipped self, with simply everthing we need for a relaxing holiday. Mark, the owner, takes great pride in keeping the property in excellent condition, updateing it regularly, and it is always very welcoming, whether we have been a party of two adults or a family of three generations.

“Great accommodation in a lovely Cornish town”
Reviewed 16 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Had an excellent stay - we were 3 adults and 2 kids and found accommodation very comfortable. Bed was uber comfy! Second visit to Porthtowen and loved fact beach etc are a short walk away. It's been decorated nicely inside and wet room was great for wetsuits etc. Will be back!

“Once again a brilliant place to stay.”
Reviewed 30 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We arrived Friday lunch time so we found a little country pub on the way down and had a good home cooked meal , by 6.00pm the cottage was ready for us . Every where was clean and tidy and ready for us . As usual we had beach towels provided , and everything we needed for the beach , the washing machine and dryer being a bonus. , I can recommend the Unicorn (next to the play area) and the Victory Inn for an excellent meal , not to mention the blue bar for food and entertainment . The service was excellent , thank you Wendy for sorting a small mishap so pleasantly , your a star . Morpeth was again clean tidy and well presented , Our family of eight were well satisfied . Best of all we liked the quiet location and being central for touring . Would definitely return . Jane

“Beautiful place, relaxing house. Surprise, what you like...”
Reviewed 9 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We have spent 5 days in this beautiful house at this beautiful place. Very convenient, in very good and clean condition, very well decorated and equipped. Everyone have enjoyed the whole time from aged 6 to 60. You really get the feeling that the owner has thought of everything. Welcome surprises everywhere. =)
If I would need to write something bad I would need to fabricate one.
It really has exceeded all our expectations.
And the view of the beach is spectacular.

“Perfect!”
Reviewed 4 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Our second stay at Mortreth Cottage! The cottage is 5 minutes from the beach and is very well-equipped, warm, clean & cosy. There are outside sitting areas at the front & back, so you can sit in the sun. Everything you need in the kitchen & loads of books, videos and games. And there's wifi - important for Cornwall! Beautiful walks from the cottage, great surfing beach, two pubs and a village shop. Perfect!

“A Perfect Family Holiday!”
Reviewed 14 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We stayed at Mortreth Cottage over the school half term week. Mark Foster's friendly and efficient way in handling the booking, keeping us posted at all times and sending directions set the scene for a great holiday. We took our Daughter and Grandaughter (aged 15) as well as our Son and his Girlfriend (both in their twenties) and all agreed that it was an excellent week in Cornwall.
The cottage is really well equipped, clean and spacious with excellent bedrooms so that we all felt that we had our own space and great living space for eating, playing the numerous games that were there and watching TV/DVD's from time to time. The view from the balcony over the sea is lovely with the sitting area at the front being great for a sunny morning breakfast.
Porthtowan and the surrounding area is lovely with easy access to the South West Coastal Path for great walks in "Poldark Country". We were very lucky with the weather and enjoyed exploring a little further afield to the Eden Project which is unmissable!
Mortreth is a very short stroll from the beach, the local shop, the Unicorn Inn and the Blue Bar. Supermarkets are a short car ride away.
We found on site parking for out two cars to be very helpful.
Since we have been back, everyone has said how much they enjoyed our stay and are missing being in Cornwall!
I have rated the property as suitable for people with disabilities. The ground floor bedrooms, living room and bathroom would certainly be helful in this respect. My one concern is that there are a few steps down to the cottage from the parking area. However the parking is onsite
