Description from owner

Description

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 - breathtaking.

There are two parking spaces allocated to this property - a rare luxury for a seaside resort!

Bed linen, a hand towel and a tea

Further details

Check-in time is not before 2:30 pm, check-out is by 10:00 am.

Bed linen, a hand towel and a tea towel are provided (guests must provide their own bath towels and beach towels).

A clean, well behaved pet is welcome at a nominal additional charge (please enquire). Please note there is a dog ban on most Cornish beaches from Easter Day to 1st October, but the green/dunes and coastal walks are right next to the property and we have many repeat guests who re-book with their dogs year upon year.

Further details indoors

The accommodation comprises:
- Small entrance hall leading to two bedrooms: there is one double bedded room with superior mattress, two double wardrobes (suggested this clothes storage is shared with the other occupants), a chest of drawers and bedside cabinet. There is one compact box-room with adult size bunk-beds (with super-comfy thick memory foam mattress toppers) and a tall bedside drawer unit. There is extra sleeping for two in the lounge where the sofa is a metal-action double bed.
- Modern fitted kitchen with newly-fitted worktops, microwave, full-size cooker, electric hob, separate fridge and freezer, washing machine, etc. All cooking equipment and crockery, cutlery, glasses etc are provided for 6 people.

- Updated bathroom that has bath with electric shower over, washbasin and WC.
- Wooden conservatory containing modern glass dining table and 6 chairs.
- Free unlimited Wi-Fi is available for your use.
- A payphone is provided in the lounge for guests to use, as there is limited mobile signal (often none) at the property and it is limited in the village. However, you may want to check with your mobile provider, as some have an app you can download to enable you to use your mobile via a Wi-Fi signal, for example Three has ‘Three in Touch’. Guests are welcome to give the landline number of the payphone to friends/relatives so they can be contacted during their time in the property (although some guests choose to remain uncontactable!!). You can normally get a mobile signal from the Blue Bar (some networks) just across the car park, or from the beach/coastal path.
- A highchair is provided free of charge.
- A travel cot is provided free of charge, should guests prefer not to bring their own (please note: no cot bedding is provided).

Further details outdoors

* Lovely sea views.
* 2 parking spaces.

Outside to the rear there is a wooden conservatory leading out to a south facing, partly paved and partly lawned garden (for your use only) with wooden table and benches. A barbecue is provided for guests to enjoy.
Outside to the front there is a shared (with the upstairs flat) paved area which leads out to a small car park, private to the residents, where you will have use of 2 parking spaces - a rare luxury for a seaside resort!

The England region

Cornwall is such a beautiful place and a variety of holiday styles can be thoroughly enjoyed here. Whether you prefer an active holiday where you can go surfing and enjoy other watersports, or you like to go walking and take in the beautiful sights on the County's many coastal paths, or you just prefer to take things easy and relax on a beach holiday – Porthtowan on the north coast of Cornwall is the ideal resort for you! Porthtowan is ideally centrally located to visit so many Cornish attractions. Visit St Ives and the Tate Gallery, the world famous Eden Project, Lanhydrock House and Gardens, the Cornish Seal Sanctuary, the wonderful Minack Theatre, the Lost Gardens of Heligan and even the Cornish Gold Centre which is just up the road - the options are absolutely endless and a holiday pack will be provided at "Sea Echoes" for you to peruse and decide which of the many attractions you would like to visit.

Porthtowan

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 side! Safe for the family, the beach is patrolled by RNLI lifeguards during busy periods.The village offers three bars - the Unicorn immediately across the green from the property is a family friendly pub which serves very good, simple 'pub grub' and the Victory at the top of the hill also offers a friendly atmosphere. For those who may prefer something a bit livelier, the infamous Blue Bar is located right on the edge of the beach and regularly hosts local bands and acts, which you can enjoy whilst watching the sun set over the sea.The nearest club can be found in Redruth, just a 10 minute drive away, but the much larger cathedral city of Truro is only about 25 minutes away and boasts many lively bars and some great clubs; for an even wilder night-life Newquay is about 30 mins drive away! There is a bus-stop just across the road from the property and Redruth train station is only about 10 minutes away.For dining out, as well as the pubs, the Boardroom is a very nice restaurant adjoining the Blue Bar, so again boasts a great location by the beach. The Boardroom can be exclusively hired for special occasions and we have accommodated many guests who have been attending small weddings there. The wedding photo opportunities by the sea are spectacular! The next village along, Mount Hawke, is a only a 5 minute drive away and here you will find the recently opened gastro-pub, the Old School Bar & Kitchen. The village of St Agnes, only a 10 minute drive away, has various pubs as well as a traditional Meadery (well worth a visit but, be warned, the Cornish Mead is very drinkable but very strong!).The nearby village of Portreath is well known for its Mineral Tramroad, which now provides an excellent bicycle trail from the north coast at Portreath along to the south coast at Devoran and this can be joined not too far from the property, just off the Porthtowan-Portreath road (if you need to hire bikes, visit The Bike Barn at Elm Farm on the road to Portreath).The nearest golf course is at Radnor Golf & Ski Centre, a 5 minute drive away. Radnor has a fun indoor ski machine where instructors will teach you to ski from scratch or you can have lessons to brush up on your technique before your Winter holiday! There is also a golf course in the other direction at Tehidy, which is about 3 or 4 miles away. Tehidy Country Park is certainly worth a visit - it is the largest single area of woodland in West Cornwall - some 250 acres! It offers over 9 miles of footpaths and trails and also bridle tracks. Children will love the walks around the lakes, feeding the swans, ducks and friendly squirrels!

“Very nice accommodation in great location”

Reviewed 28 Jun 2013

We have always enjoyed visiting Porthtowan when in Cornwall but never actually stayed in the village, and this was perfect for us. Very comfortable, well equiped and spacious accommodation. Great location so close to the beach and shops and pub, but it was quiet - no problems with noise at all. It was lovely sitting in the garden or the conservatory and watching the sea. The parking space was a real bonus

Thank you for your great review! We appreciate your comments on how it was quieter than you were expecting, despite being central, and also the added bonus of having parking provided - two parking spaces is indeed an unusual luxury for a seaside holiday property! We hope to welcome you back to "Sea Echoes" one day :)

“Perfect holiday getaway, great location, great price”

Reviewed 12 Sep 2012

The apartment was exactly as described. It had a fantastic sea view especially from the garden. It was the comfiest and best equipped place we have stayed in (of 3 in Porthtowan and 5 in St Agnes). Katrina gave us a warm welcome personally and with the lovely cream tea, she was also on hand should we have had any problems - we didn't. Didn't want to leave! Would definitely recommend and will visit again, hopefully in the near future.

What a fantastic review! Thank you so much for your kind comments. We would love to welcome you back to "Sea Echoes" one day and still offer a Repeat Guest Discount :)

“Lovely apartment”

Reviewed 27 May 2011

The property was immaculately kept. Great to have a conservatory and garden which opened onto the dunes (perfect for our dog). Beautifully clean with all the extras you need. Very handy having a telephone as we needed it due to an emergency. Porthtowan is really beautiful and very friendly. Cream tea on arrival was a lovely touch. Jill and Allan

Thanks so much for such a lovely review. We always love welcoming back guests and still offer a Repeat Guest Discount. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay.
