    It was very cosy, warm & in an ideal location. Everything had been thought of to make it comfortable including scones for a cream tea - tea, coffee , sugar & milk also provided. Such a lovely touch -Thank You. The cottage was Perfect for our dogs too. There is only one tiny issue (and its not a big enough issue to let it ruin a holiday) is parking. We have quite a long saloon car & had an adventure parking. After the first day we worked out it was easier to reverse all the way down the lane. I can imagine if you drove anything bigger like a 4x4 it may be quite difficult to park (& not overlap neighbouring parking spaces..) Our suggestion to resolve the parking issue would be:. Seing as the Summer House does not appear to be used- take that out & move the fence /gate back just a few meters to make more parking space. But other than that everything was great.

    There wasn't enough water pressure for the shower so had to use the downstairs bathroom. Unfortunatley by the end of the fortnight the water was backing up from the drain in the shower & we had to mop the floor. We didn't get a change of bedding or towels but we used the towels in the second bedroom as there are only the two of us. The mattress was uncomfortable too. Apart from this the cottage is very nice & in an ideal location for the beach, shops & pubs. We recommend the Bassett Arms for food especially Sunday lunch. Also recommend the Atlantic fish bar. We enjoyed our holiday & love Portreath.

The level of hygiene around the freezer was very very poor 3 The carpet are filthy. 4 When we pulled the beds out to make sure that we had not left anything behind we found toenail clippings and a false nail which we left there because the room was not cleaned properly. 5 When we arrived the dustbin had not been emptied so we had to keep our rubbish in the summerhouse. When we vacated the property we had to put our rubbish at the front outside. No recycling bags are provided to sought are rubbish out. 6 The all the windows were filthy. On the kitchen window there is a vent which was had not been cleaned. Because of the extra hours that we lost due for the need to clean for the COVID situation I feel we have been short changed.

    The ensuite shower does not work. Water pressure is so slow it was nothing but a trickle or nothing at all!!. Secondly it should be mentioned that during the summer months, dogs are not allowed on Portreath beach. We booked the cottage thinking we could enjoy days on the beach, when in reality we had to drive to a beach each day.

    Thank you for completing your feedback. The issue with the water pressure at Pebble Cottage has now been resolved. We would advise checking with the Tourist Information Board regarding dog friendly beaches especially during the summer months, when a lot of beaches do have restrictions in place. Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely stay, and the cottage was cosy and had what we needed."

    The only thing I would say, is that the gate needs fixing, ( which I think the owners do know about from previous comments) as we had to block the hole/gap with something, because we had dogs. Also it says there is a DVD player, and there wasn't one, but this wasn't an issue for us. Other than that, all was well :)

    Very small cottage so it was very hard to get in shower (there was some reference to this in the listing but it is very awkward), storage heaters weren’t giving out enough heat so it felt chilly, mattress on double bed very soft and gave us both back ache. Some small things missing from kitchen like salt and pepper, tin foil, hand soap. Double bedroom very dated. We had a nice holiday in Portreath though and I think the owners could easily rectify things. Thanks

The property

This divine and cosy Cornish cottage is located within minutes of golden Portreath Beach and the north Atlantic coastline.

Nuzzled amongst an attractive terrace of homestays at the foot of the cliff, this cheery and welcoming retreat ticks all the boxes for a coastal escape for family, friends and couples seeking both recreation and relaxation.

Pebble Cottage boasts a fusion of contemporary and character accommodation with two attractive bedrooms and two shower rooms, the double has an en-suite.

Both bedrooms are comfortable and have ample storage, whilst the cosy sitting room with beamed ceiling houses a delightful wood burner, making it a restful spot, leading into the modern kitchen.

The ground-floor shower room is perfectly placed after a day of sun, sea and sand, while the spacious sun room doubles as the dining room, overlooking the pretty garden of patio and pebbles, with summerhouse for secure storage of surf gear and cycles.

A safe space for children and pets to play, it's also an ideal spot for blue sky feasts, coffees and an evening glass of wine.

Popular Portreath has shops for provisions, cafés, a deli, coffee hideouts and inns - this little resort has a chirpy vibe and the sandy beach with dinky harbour is well-loved, with a stream running across the sands and excellent surf for body boarders.

Scenic rambles are guaranteed from atop the South West Coast Path which showcases magical seascapes.

Walk to Bassets Cove (five miles there and back) or head northbound to lively Porthtowan, a four-mile stroll through beautiful scenery.

Once there, reward yourself with refreshment in the Blue Bar café and restaurant, tucked aside the dunes with big ocean vista.

The stunning country park at Tehidy boasts miles of cycle/bridle path nature trails for exploration.

Discover St Agnes and Trevaunance Cove, Perranporth, Newquay and Watergate Bay, all reached within a short car journey.

The north Atlantic coastline is a hot spot destination, making for a wonderful holiday all-year-round.

About the location

PORTREATH

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.
