Porthtowan, Cornwall, England
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.

Lovely guests, left the cottage in good order and were even honest about inadvertently packing a towel and a bottle opener! Nice people to deal with too.
