From the owner

Mortreth is a modern, spacious 3-bedroom end row cottage in the seaside village of Porthtowan, just 5 minutes off the A30. It is a short walk from the beach and the village's many amenities.

Most importantly for the last 5 years our housekeeper is the lovely Wendy, whose day job is Duty Manager at a local Care Home. Consequently cleanliness is exceptional and even more so in these days of COVID-19.

With a balcony overlooking the bay Mortreth is a modern open plan property with a fully fitted kitchen; separate dining area, and a bright, airy living area. The open plan lounge and dining areas lead through patio doors to the private balcony with views of the bay and beach and it's a great place to watch the sun go down. Alternatively relax in the cottage garden and catch the last of the evening sun. With two doubles, one twin bedroom and a sofa bed in the lounge this an ideal family holiday home.

The cottage comes equipped with a stairgate, high chair, travel cot, bathroom step, childs loo seat, electrical socket covers and the garden is gated making it toddler friendly.

Porthtowan is a small village nestling into the cliffs of the north coast of Cornwall. It is set in an attractive cove with a large, sandy, blue flag beach bordered by rock pools. It lies on the National Trust Coast Path and the main attractions of Cornwall are all within easy reach.
