  • "Our family really enjoyed our stay here."

    The bungalow is very specious, enough room for a family of 5 to find their own personal space. It has a very modern clean decor, which makes you feel your at home from the moment you enter. The local beach was probably our favorite, as it clean and was not to busy. We all enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub and the end of the day. It was nice touch. Thankyou Dian, hope to stay in your property again.

    Hi and thanks for taking the time to provide feedback. We are over the moon you enjoyed your stay at Bimbling Cottage and would certainly love the opportunity to host you in the future. Portreath beach is indeed beautiful and somewhere we love to spend time with our family. Thanks Dani & Gary Property Owner

  • "Fantastic property."

    Can’t recommend highly enough. Superb decor. Hot tub is top end quality with stunning views over the valley. Property is within walking distance of Portreath beach. Real gem. Highly recommended.

    It's great to hear you had such a wonderful time at Bimbling Cottage! We fell in love with the view on our first visit and we are glad you did too. Thanks for the kind words and we hope to host you again some time. Many thanks Dani & Gary Property Owner

The property

Illogan 1.4 miles.

Positioned in between the beautiful beaches of Portreath and Porthtowan in Cornwall is Bimbling Cottage, a contemporary bungalow.

Enjoying countryside views and a short distance from a range of amenities and two beaches, Bimbling Cottage offers a stylish base for a group of six guests, featuring a private hot tub, an open-plan living space, and flexible sleeping arrangements; one well-behaved dog is also welcomed.

Benefit from off-road parking before making your way into the property, firstly reaching the living space; boasting views out to the enclosed, front garden with stunning landscape views of the Cornish countryside, use this space as your social hub, whilst preparing meals in the sleek kitchen, gathering around the dining table, or relaxing with the TV on in the backdrop.

Head outdoors if you'd prefer an alfresco affair, before climbing into the hot tub for a well-deserved soak.

Rest your eyes in one of three well-appointed bedrooms, including a king-size with en-suite for convenience, a further king size, and a twin, all serviced by a sleek family bathroom, housing both a bath and separate shower.

Awaken to stunning vistas across the county, before touring the local area, arriving at Portreath Beach and Basset's Cove, ideal for visiting for a day at the beach, Feadon Wildlife & Education Centre, sure to impress guests of all ages, or hike across Sally’s Bottom nature reserve to try your hand at birdwatching.

Travelling north, reach the coast of Saint Agnes, also home to a local museum, and the picturesque vantage point of St Agnes Head, before continuing towards Newquay.

On route, stop off at Healey's Cornish Cyder Farm for a tour and the chance to taste some local produce, Lappa Valley railway, reaching the adventure centre, ahead of discovering the resort and its attractions, including the Blue Reef Aquarium Newquay, Great Western Beach, and Newquay Orchard.

Book your next family break to Bimbling Cottage.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £350.
