Resting just over a mile from the sandy beaches of Portreath is this end-of-terrace granite cottage, Chy Lowen.

This homely abode boasts a traditional interior, providing welcoming accommodation for families and couples to call home for a while.

Step into the sitting room and you’ll immediately sense the character of the cottage through the Clearview wood effect tile floorboards, exposed granite walls and ceiling beams, along with an alluring woodburning stove which is sure to be used during the winter months.

Continue through the country style kitchen/diner, here you can sit at the dining table with a feast to delight in cooked up on the impressive range cooker and hob, toasting to a long-awaited Cornish getaway.

Climb the wooden staircase to reach the bedrooms, offering two double doubles and a single room, finished with stylish touches and harmonious colour palettes, along with traditional sash windows from which the surrounding countryside can be admired.

The quality of this cottage is enhanced further within the bathroom, dominated by the freestanding roll-top bath with a rainfall shower and hand-held attachment, along with a his and hers marble wash basin, it’s a lovely place to prepare yourself for the day.

Take a moment to relax within the enclosed garden; sit at the table and chairs for some alfresco dining in between activities, while your canine companion stretches their legs in the sunshine.

If you can tear yourself away from this charming spot, cross the road to reach The Bridge Inn, a traditional country pub or go along the old tramway lined with trees that runs alongside to the Portreath Arms and is perfect if you fancy a night off from cooking.

The surrounding area offers great cycling opportunities, store your bike up on the bike rack in the utility room, and then take them out along The Mineral Tramway Trail Cycle Path, suitable for those with limited mobility, just a short distance away, trailing to Portreath or up to the Tehidy Country Park.

For a fun day out with the kids visit the Rouge Theatre at Tehidy Woods for enchanting celebrations of the seasons as they come and go.

This peaceful woodland is now managed as a national park and this tranquil area can be explored with its own cafe and picnic area and can be reached 5 different ways so no walk needs to be the same.

Head south along the road the property sits on to Paynters Lane End where the local favourite Robartes Arms sits, perfect for a traditional country meal or to really get involved it offers live music and quiz nights.

Portreath is a small yet vibrant resort with a choice of shops, traditional pubs, cafes and restaurants, as well as a sandy beach which is popular with experienced surfers for its ‘vortex’ surf break.

About the location


Truro 14 miles; St Ives 15 miles.

With its sheltered harbour, beautiful Portreath was, in the 1800s, a hive of activity and industry as a major tin-exporting port. Today, the village attracts visitors from around the world with its wild and rugged coastline. High cliffs, secluded coves and sandy, surf-washed beaches typify the area while all around are reminders of the area's rich industrial heritage. Portreath offers a small fishing harbour, shops, a number of pubs, three cafés and a Chinese restaurant, while its safe, sheltered sandy beach is a popular attraction. For a great day out, visit the cathedral city of Truro with its cobbled streets, shopping centre, theatre, museum and great restaurants, just 14 miles away, or travel a few miles along the coast and follow the vast expanse of sandy beach, which leads down to Hayle and on to St Ives. A delightful holiday location.
