Learn something new in a Portreath cottage!
Take the plunge and try an exciting water-based activity such as surfing, windsailing, bodyboarding, sea kayaking or coasteering. You can hire all the equipment locally and make fast progress.
Back on land, enjoy walking, cycling, riding and more. There's a lovely circular walk in Illogan Woods just next to Portreath. Also Tehidy Country Park offering bridleways, mountain bike trails, lakes filled with wildlife, nature trails and an adjoining golf course.
Or stride out from your Portreath cottage along the South West Coastal Path, winding its way along the flower-clad cliff-tops and affording mindboggling vistas at every step. North Cliffs are a prime example, with views of Godrevy Lighthouse and St. Ives in the distance. Expect to see a wide variety of wildlife like buzzards, kittiwakes and sometimes seals.
Otherwise opt for relaxing days on the gorgeous sandy beach, cleaned daily to keep everything shipshape. A small stream runs down to the sea at the side and it's very popular with families - think flip-flops, sandcastles, bat and ball. At low tide, rock pools emerge as does a natural tidal pool - great for children to splash about and swim.
For a magical mix of coast and countryside, our Portreath cottages are amongst the best!
