  • "A lovely cottage in a great location close to Portreath."

    Garden was great for the dog, with the added bonus of a hot tub for the humans. Welcome shortbread, prosecco and ice cream very much appreciated. Can't think if any negatives and would hope to visit again.

  • "A lovely quiet area with stunning coastal walks on your doorstep."

    Clean and comfortable. Kids (and adults) loved the hot tub. I would recommend the property but we had big problems with Sykes. We had to miss the first day of our stay since Sykes did not get back to us about how to enter the property. This was despite calls, live chat and emails. They are not easy to get hold of. I am still awaiting a reply from their email customer service once we finally found it.

    We have had such a lovely time at the cottage it was so warm and welcoming the little extra touches made all the difference thanks to the hosts for the flowers biscuits and bottle of prosecco, also it was lovely to get there and have tea coffee and milk there to have a brew after such a long journey , the hot tub was also amazing, Jack was lovely and gave us details of beaches to visit and told us we could use the lane at the back of the farm to walk to the cliffs which was lovely with the dogs, the garden was very secure which made us feel relaxed that we could let the dogs out and the extra treat of their own gelato ice cream from the farm shop was delicious I have already recommended it to my friends and family thanks for a great holiday

  • "This is an absolutely fantastic property which we really enjoyed staying at."

    The owners are so welcoming and friendly and the farm the property is situated on is stunning. The house was comfortable and clean, the decor superb and had everything we needed for a fantastic holiday in Cornwall. It’s also so close to Portreath beach which really made it so much easier with small children and our dog. The garden, BBQ and Hot tub are also amazing and we were really impressed with the standard of maintenance of the hot tub. Thank you for paying such attention to detail to all of the small things too which make a massive difference such as plenty of towels, a washing machine, cleaning products etc. We will definitely be back to stay!

The property

Portreath 1.1 miles.

This semi-detached property sits in North Cliff, close to the village of Portreath, Cornwall.

Benefitting from off-road parking and an enclosed garden with private hot tub, along with easy access to the beach, Carvannel Cottages is a delightful escape for families and friends looking to spend some time along the north coast of Cornwall.

After a day on the beach, look forward to kicking back in the lounge, keeping warm beside the woodburning stove and enjoying a film from the Smart TV.

Dust off those cooking books in the kitchen, equipped with a host of appliances to assist with your culinary requirements, whilst the dining room is perfect for mealtimes.

Retreat upstairs and find comfort in the bedrooms, offering a double, bunk and single, each neutrally presented in light tones.

Start the day with a rinse in the bathroom, choosing between a bath or shower over, before heading to the garden for a coffee in idyllic surroundings.

Why not return here in the evening for a barbecue followed by a dip in the hot tub?

Kick off your holiday itinerary with a visit to Portreath Beach and Basset’s Cove, two beautiful stretches of sand, before whiling away the hours in a beachside café or choose a local restaurant for a meal out.

Family days out can be enjoyed at 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 vantage point of St Agnes Head, before continuing towards Newquay.

If adventure takes you further afield, the fishing town of St Ives can’t be missed, whilst Cornwall’s only city, Truro, offers beautiful architecture and a host of amenities.

Choose Carvannel Cottages for a wonderful retreat to Cornwall, whatever time of year.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.

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.
