This is our second autumn break here in two years adn we love it. Lovely comfortable accommodation and watching that view of the ocean, we could never get tired of that! Beautiful walks along the coast. We will return again for sure.

Andrea and David, 

Our first time in Porthtowan and what an amazing find! Seashells is just perfect a lovely home from home. We have had the most fabulous week, my highlight was Chapel Porth to see Wheal Coates although next year the coastal path up to it is my goal. My heart is not ready to take walking our 4 year old up there! So pleased we have already booked into Seashells for next summer and cannot wait to come back. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful apartment and the amazing ocean view. This is my happy place!

Jo, Simon and Taran, 

A fabulous place. Fantastic views. Apartment is warm and cosy and has everything you need. Hope we have the opportunity to come back next year. Great location for exploring Cornwall. Miners Arms was fantastic. Coastal path amazing and Victory Inn was very welcoming. Walk to Chapel Porth was stunning. All round great place.

John and Mary, 

Had a great week at Seashells. The views are amazing and the flat is so well equipped with all that you need. Was lovely to come back at night and sit watching the sunset from the sofa. We visited many places but the Schooners at Trevaunance Cove was an absolute delight with amazing views and lovely food. The Victory Inn was really welcoming with lovely food too. So many places still left to find so we will be back! Many thanks.

Carole and Ken, 

Seashells is a home from home. fantastic views of the ocean. We had a lovely stay. Weather was cooler which was wonderful and a nice break from the hot temp in Essex!

Miners Arms is a treat. Lovely food and atmosphere. If you have kids Holywell bay is a must. Truro was a great visit too. Thank you for our scones and jam. what a lovely welcome. Many thanks for a lovely stay.

Wendy, Matt, Connor and Kai, 

We have enjoyed our stay here at Seashells. The apartment is superb, the best feature of course , is the view! It was a scramble to get postition A on the sofa!

We had lots of trips out around Cornwall but coming back to Porthtowan is always a joy. We would recommend visits to St Ives and Mousehole, not to forget St Agnes! Thanks for the wine!

Michelle, Liverpool, 

Great place to stay with perfect view of the sea and the surf. Fine weather and lots of walks along the coast, including St Agnes, Portreath, Chapel Porth. Very relaxing and lovely accommodation - have really enjoyed the break. Many thanks.

Berni and family, 

Wow! The view of the beach and cliffs are stunning! We have just had a wonderful week at Seashells. Thank you Jenny and Ashley for sharing your ' home from home' with us. Everything we needed was waiting for us and quickly became 'our home from home' ! A great position for exploring Cornwall, with the A30 within easy reach but great for a lazy day at Porthtowan and all it has to offer. Highly recommend Seashell.

George & Sue Sims, 

This is our second visit to Seashells in Porthtowan, after staying here last September and the apartment being so home from home with it's cleanliness and welcoming feeling we knew we would be back.So here we were again from 31st March to 7th April and yet again felt very comfortable at Seashells. Arriving to a cream tea and milk in the fridge just what's needed after a long drive!!! I would highly recommend Seashells and I'm sure we will be back again soon. Thank you to Jenny for providing such a home from home welcoming stay

Sarah , 

We had a lovely stay at Seashells, the apartment has everything we needed and felt like home from home. Beautiful sea views , we enjoyed lots of days out. We've been to Cornwall many times but never to Porthtowan and will definitely be back next year. Would highly recommend Seashells.
Thanks Jenny.

Sarah , 

The perfect base for a great holiday!
We have 2 young children (2 & 4) and this apartment was just right for our time in Cornwall. It has a clean & modern feel to it and it was lovely to find milk, tea, coffee, sugar & wine waiting for us on our arrival.
It's very close to the beach and we enjoyed several evenings watching the sunset from the living room window.
It has a well equipped kitchen including a washing machine & tumble dryer and is a comfortable place in every respect.
We can see ourselves returning here for several years ahead and have already booked for next year.


Thank you. What a gorgeous location. Apartment beautiful and clean it had everything we needed and an added bonus of a fantastic view out to the cove.


Beautiful views, great location, good base to go exploring. Thank you for the lovely cream tea after a long journey. All the essentials to get us going, spotlessly clean. Look forward to our next visit.

Matt and Michelle, 

Had a most enjoyable week here at Seashells. Personal touches make all the difference, tea, coffee, milk and all you need to get you started. Lots to explore in the area walks along the coast with wonderful views. Look forward to staying with you again.

Phil and Val, 

We have just got back from a fantastic week in Porthtowan and we already want to go back. Seascape [now Seashells] had everything we needed with the added bonus of beautiful views!! It is also clean and comfortable with a well equipt kitchen for cooking or the bar down the road do a nice pizza and the ice cream place is a must! We have been going to Widemouth and Tintagel for years so it was great to try somewhere different and we will go back for sure. :)


Thank you Jenny!

We had an amazing stay in your apartment with the fantastic view of the beach. Thank you for the milk and cookies...We would definitely recommend this area and your fab apartment to others or maybe even come back and visit again ourselves. Lovely holiday!

Claire, Gordon, Jessica and William, 

Lovely apartment with amazing views!! Beautiful beach and picturesque walks. Thank you Jenny for a really lovely holiday...

Lisa, Darren and Zac, 

Lovely apartment, amazing views and location, very good for visiting lots of lovely places. We have been coming to Cornwall for years but had never been to Porthtowan. Such a pretty spot and great views of the sea and beach from the windows...Thank you Jenny for our stay in your lovely apartment, I would recommend it to anyone and will be doing so when I get home.

Lorraine and Len, 

Lovely apartment, great views and very warm and comfortable, enjoyed our clifftop walks to Chapel Porth, lovely ice-creams, visited most of surrounding area...had nice evening meals in Miners Arms and Victory Inn, would definitely return...

Mike and Sue, 

We had an awesome few days at the Seacape [now Seashells] house. Absolutely perfect to check the waves from the couch and and I've had the best view doing the washing up ever :-). Had a nice surf session in Porthtowan. Even found the sea pool and had a beautiful sunset view from the cliffs. Thanks for the nice stay in the nice and cosy Seacape. We'll for sure keep it in mind for next time! Greetz, Leonie, Bas, Niels and Bea, AKA the Dutch surf crew.


Wow!! What a wonderful time we have had. We have really enjoyed celebrating my son's birthday in Seascape [now Seashells]. The view is to die for - especially during a thunderstorm. We are regular visitors to Cornwall but this is our first time here...we hope to come back again soon.....Thanks for a wonderful stay.


We have just returned from spending a lovely weekend here. The flat felt fresh, clean and nicely decorated. It had everything we needed. There were also DVDs, books and games suitable for all of us (2 adults and 2 children) We were fortunate to have lovely weather, and this flat really did get all the sunshine, as well as the lovely sunsets. The flat had great views towards the sea. We loved the fact we could see the size of the waves and the surfers on them from our window. We also appreciated being able to see our children in the play park from our window.

On one day we did the easy walk on the Coast Path to Chapel Porth Beach. Since it was low tide, we walked back along the spectacular beach (I believe this beach is only visible at certain times of the day due to the tide) where there was lots of sand. We were delighted to see a pod of dolphins playing in the waves when we did this. There were lots of lovely sandy pools around the rocks (these were near the edge of the beach) on the walk back between Chapel Porth Beach and Porthtowan Beach (but beware of the tide). The children loved these pools because in the sunshine they were warmer than the sea to play in. On another day we went to St Agnes and did a 'Treasure Trail' which we purchased via the internet before our stay. The longer we stayed at Seascape [now Seashells] the more we enjoyed our break.

Sue B, 

Our first impressions of the flat was that it was sparkling! The rooms were spotless and the kitchen was full of necessities. We loved the amazing views. We have really enjoyed our stay here and would definitely recommend this to friends and family.

Ade, Jayne and Emily, 

We have had a lovely and relaxing break and everything we wanted is here and the setting suited us perfectly. We would not hesitate to recommend this accomodation.

Brian and Julie, 

We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, the scenery/views from the couch are amazing. Thanking you for the hospitality (ie tea, coffee and milk) provided which made our stay feel 'home from home.

Tony and Rose, 

The weather has been perfect and we have been on the beach every day. The apartment has everything you need but its greatest asset has to be the glorious views of the bay and the stunning sunset every evening. Cliff top walks in both directions highly recommended as are the hedgehog and foxy ice creams at Chapel Porth!

Ian, Michelle and Madeleine, 

Fantastic few days here at Kingsley Cove. Stunning views, lovely locals. Just what my little boy and I needed. Would definitely come back.

Lisa and Arlo,
