  • "The Chace was a lovely house in a great location, close to the beach and the SW Coastal path."

    Our only issue was that the internet wasn't working when we arrived and Kim, the agent in Portreath wasn't able to help. We managed to figure it out though by plugging the internet into the test socket, which suggests an internal wiring issue in the house.

  • "The Chace is good."

    As a family of 5 we thought we could have used a bigger fridge freezer. Also TV in lounge is small by today’s standards. We were disappointed by the lack of cleaning supplies available to be able to maintain the standard of cleanliness. Hoover bag was full and wet and smelt of dog. Phoned management company but got no response back at all. That was disappointing. For money paid would expect better from them.

  • "I love this property for its convenience and location."

    The kitchen facilities are good and the lounge, bedrooms are fine. I do feel the bathroom needs an update; the toilet is dated and the shower is weak. Just being honest with what I feel can be a lovely place to stay. Thanks

    The house was clean and tidy and lots of games to play which helped as the weather wasn’t great. Lovely big kitchen table was great as we had two teenagers having to revise for mock exams. More than happy.

  • "Hi We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the The Chace."

    I lived in Portreath and was a mining Prospector, home from home but in a different county at present. I will hopefully come back to The Chace as it felt very welcoming, really lovely, clean and more… One note I would like to make is the amount of emails from the agency regarding next holiday etc on a similar note, I hadn’t even arrived yet!! Felt rather stressed by them however cannot fault their efficiency. Less emails please. Thank you Hope to be there again !

  • "This lovely property is in a fantastic position."

    It is walking distance (just a few minutes) of a beach, a couple of cafes, three pubs and a shop. It is also a good position for exploring Cornwall itself with Newquay only 35 or so minutes away and the same for St Ives. Portreath and Cornwall itself is very dog friendly and we are thinking of going back next year we enjoyed it so much.

    As mentioned in previous reviews the property could do with updating. Our stay was in January the electric heating was a little insufficient at times. The owner has put additional heaters in the property but not always practical. Bath sheets would be nice rather than bath towels. Everything else is perfect, as is all the extras. The welcome tray was simply delicious. Thank you so much Great location, literally 2-3 minutes walk to beach. Very welcoming local people. Three pubs in walking distance. The Basset Arms was a favourite for us, food is great and reasonably priced.

    Would have liked a welly boot remover and scraper and the ability to recycle. Also couldn't find a hairdryer and the plug on the Hoover was broken so couldn't clean before leaving. Petty things really as it was such a cosy place.

  • "We were surprised that we were only supplied with one toilet roll for the week."

    There is an aerial cable from the roof into the side wall which goes down the side of the gutter pipe. This was quite loose and in the strong wind kept us awake by flapping noisily against the down pipe. A temporary fix was made with sellotape. Two of the kitchen lights were dead so we replaced these, leaving no spares. We left a note to this effect. We were surprised that no mention was made of recycling, someone had left a lot of plastic bottles etc in the seagull-proof waste bag but the bin men did not take this. We brought all our recycling home! We were very comfortable in this spacious holiday home and very pleased at how many facilities Portreath has and all so close to The Chace. Shame that the beach is only dog-friendly after 7pm until 1 October though.

The property

Positioned just paces from the glorious sandy beach in Portreath, The Chace is a homely and well-presented coastal retreat.

Set in the heart of this buzzing resort, it offers accommodation over two floors, with a pretty front garden and off-road parking.

On the ground floor is an entrance porch for sandy flip-flops and boogie boards, leading into the separate sitting room with mock electric wood burner, comfy sofas and beams.

The contemporary kitchen with dining area is ideal for foody gatherings.

Patio doors lead out to the courtyard at the rear, which is gated and can be enclosed, with a driveway for one car plus additional space directly at the foot of the garden wall and third parking space in front of the garage (garage not available).

The garden table and chairs makes a good spot for sunny nibbles and cream teas.

On the first floor, three comfortable bedrooms greet you; a double with king-size bed and TV for duvet watching, twin bedroom and the bunk bedroom.

The family bathroom with shower over completes this super seaside haven.

Portreath Beach makes a fabulous playground for surfing escapades, swimming and picnics.

Walk the stunning coast path to Porthtowan or Godrevy and Gwithian, through nature reserves and sand dunes, having a pit stop at a beachside café.

Truro, with its majestic cathedral and retail, cinema and theatre, plus restaurants, bars and pubs is a short drive away.

Closer to home, there are beach inns, shops and cafes just paces from The Chace – so you can relax, have fun with that bucket and spade or simply devour a pasty lunch or fish and chip supper aside a picturesque seascape on the north Cornish coast.

Tehidy Park is great for cycle rides and dog rambles or tee off a round of golf at the nearby green.

Portreath has so much to offer and The Chace is the perfect base for family, friends and couples to enjoy new adventures.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

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.
