Sea Echoes is ideally situated in the village of Porthtowan, Cornwall only a minutes level walk to the beach, perfect for surfers, coastal walkers and beach lovers. It is located in the heart of the village, set back slightly, not too near the main bustle, with lovely sea and beach views, which can be enjoyed from the garden.
Porthtowan is a popular seaside resort, which has been awarded Blue Flag status, extremely popular with surfers. The village is more peaceful and laid back than other Cornish resorts but it still offers three bars all serving good food (including the very popular beachside Blue Bar), a restaurant, café and a chip shop. The lovely cathedral city of Truro is about twenty five minutes away and boasts many amenities. There is a bus-stop just across the road from the property and Redruth train station is only ten minutes away.
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, on the junction down from the Flaming Wok (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 five minute drive away, with an indoor ski machine. There is also a golf course at Tehidy, which is four miles away. Tehidy Country Park is worth a visit, the largest single area of woodland in West Cornwall, some 250 acres, offering over nine miles of footpaths, trails and bridle tracks. A car is recommended for full exploration of the surrounding area but not essential at Sea Echoes.
