About Mark

We are a family with Cornish roots who love Porthtowan. We bought the Beach Cottage for the stunning views over the beach and coastline beyond. We furnished the house to a high standard with 1 to 2 families in mind, so you can have a relaxing holiday in Cornwall.

A special time in Porthtowan

  • 5 of 5

Our family party of 9 had a wonderful time in Beach Cottage. The property was spotlessly clean and well-maintained with easy access to the beach and the coastal walk..

It has a kitchen you can cook in and an expansive deck for outside meals and a internal dining room if it gets cooler.

I heartily recommend the property.

Superb location and very well equipped ,fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic family break celebrating my 50th, the views are simply stunning, what a delight opening the bedroom curtains to a wonderful view of the beach and eating breakfast in the kitchen watching the waves crash in, the premises are very well equipped with all needs catered for, we highly recommend the Blue bar on the beach, again stunning views, excellent coffee and a fun curry and quiz night on the Sunday evening, the other local pub the Unicorn is also worth a visit just doesn't have the setting directly on the beach, I must mention the amazing Sunday roast at the Victory Inn which is within walking distance of the cottage, it really is a must !! I can say with certainty that we will be visiting again soon.

Wonderful Place to Stay - Inside and Out

  • 5 of 5

Beach Cottage was exactly as detailed in the listing, except that the house, the views, and the surrounding countryside were even more beautiful than described. The owner was extremely helpful. The house was well-equipped, very spacious, and very comfortable. Eight of us, together with 2 dogs, stayed for Christmas week, and there was ample room for all of us. We had a wonderful time, and all of us felt truly relaxed, and not wanting to leave at all, by the end of our stay. We thoroughly recommend Beach Cottage, and we would love to come back to stay another time.

Amazing house and brilliant views

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay at this property and the whole process was very easy, Mark was really helpful and gave us some information beforehand for the local area. The house is in an amazing location and is beautifully presented, we stayed with another couple and the house is just huge! Highlights are the beautiful baths, double showers and main bedroom views of the sea. The kitchen has everything you could need as well. The beach is great for bodyboarding and surfing and we had a lovely walk to Chapel Porth this area was so beautiful with a local shop, a coupe of pubs nearby and beautiful walks that we didn't use the car once during our week away. We can't wait to go back - thank you for having us!

We booked beach cottage as we were getting married in Porthtowan on May 31st. All my family stayed at the house so it was very busy but with the lovely bedrooms, all the bathrooms and the huge sun deck we felt like we were in a mansion!!!

From the very outset Mark has been so helpful answering all our questions and helping us in so many ways!

The house was very well equipped and we had everything we needed for a lovely stay.

We made some wonderful memories in Porthtowan this week but nothing will beat sitting on the sun deck, drinking some bubbles, watching the sun go down with my new husband!

Thank you Mark and Rowena for making our wedding week just that bit better by staying at Beach Cottage. We will be back for many years to come!!!

Simply amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

We booked the Beach Cottage for a weekend in February 2016 to celebrate our Grans 80th birthday. Our stay was simply amazing, it was the perfect property, the perfect location and had the perfect view.

Even before we arrived the owner was very helpful answering all questions and had good local knowledge that was extremely helpful.

Our party consisted of 9 adults and 2 dogs who more than comfortably fitted in a spacious and relaxing cottage, made even more cosy by the log burner roaring away whilst Storm Imogen raged outside giving the most dramatic seas and views. The cottage was well equipped, warm, clean, well maintained and there were instructions for everything including the Sky tv with all channels which entertained our sport/movie mad family.

It was the ideal location for the Eden Project, Flambards and Porthtowan Beach.

The Beach Cottage made our Grans 80th birthday truly unforgettable and the memories made will last a lifetime, in fact we are already making plans to return next year.
