  • “Beautiful cottage and very close to the beach, however the steps up and down from the cottage could cause problems for people with limited mobility.”

    - Mr Hyde, September 2020

The kitchen is fully equipped with all the appliances you could possibly need to cook up something hearty and filling.

Choose whether to serve up your meal at the dining table within the kitchen, or venture to the picnic table and soak take watch the sunset.

As the night draws in, find your sleeping arrangements, choosing from a well-presented double room which comes complete with an en-suite shower room, a bright and airy twin room with two windows letting the Cornish sunshine in, or a bunk room perfect for the little ones.

Alongside this is a family bathroom containing a bath with a shower over, and a basin and WC.

Step out of the cottage with a bag packed for the beach and head down to the sands to get a good spot, but don't worry if you've forgotten anything because it's only a few steps away!

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.
