Condo/Apartment -
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 sea...

We can honestly say this is the best place in the UK we have ever stayed! Fabulous sea view, best we've ever had. Everything we need is in "Sea Echoes", we haven't wanted for anything. Really comfy beds. Such a friendly and relaxed area. Alfie the dog has loved his seaside holiday! We have already recommended to so many people....

If you want to stay right by the beach then this place is perfect. You can see the sea from the garden and dining area and walk to it in a couple of minutes. It's small but perfectly equipped, with plenty of games for the kids, bbq, garden seating, comfy sofa and armchairs. The owner Katrina is friendly and accommodating,...

We have been returning to Sea Echoes for years; that alone should tell you something! However I haven’t written a review since our first stay so thought it was about time I sang it’s praises again... Where to start.. location, perfect, you can see the sea from the garden and the beach is literally a stones throw away as are...

Management response:

Such a fantastically positive review has made me feel quite emotional, Sarah! Thank you! We love welcoming you, your family and pooch every year and I am delighted to hear how much you love the place and that it feels like home - what more could I want to hear?! See you next year :)

About the neighbourhood
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.
