“Relaxed beach rental perfect for young family”
Reviewed June 11, 2012 for a stay in May 2012

We had a wonderful week at Mortreth Cottage. The house itself isn't country cottage beautiful and it sits on a fairly modern development but what it lacks in outside glamour it more than makes up for by its location and its interior which is welcoming, well equipped and relaxing. There were hundreds of videos, dvds, toys and games to keep the children occupied if the weather got bad (which it didn't in our case) as well as spades, buckets, nets, boogie boards and other equipment you'd need for the beach. There's also an outdoor hose for the sandy return from the beach and a washer and dryer in the outhouse. Beds were all very comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped. It took us about 5 minutes to walk to the beach - that was with full beach equipment, surf and boogie boards, a four year old and a two year old. Porthtowan has a fantastic beach and is conveniently placed for visits to other beaches and attractions like The Eden Project. I would say forget Newquay, Padstow etc...if you're looking to stay in North Cornwall and head down this way. Nearby St Agnes is a gem of a village with a fantastic fish and chip shop (fission chips) and the walk to Chapel Porth is well worth it - our young children managed the walk over the cliff and absolutely loved the walk back along massive, deserted, clean coves. Great house, great beach with rock pools and caves, great holiday.
