The property

Surf Cottage holds a stunning position literally on the sandy beach at the seaside resort of Portreath on Cornwall’s north coast, mid-way between St Ives and Newquay.

You can't be nearer the sea than this!

Commanding full vantage across the picturesque cove, the location is idyllic for beach lovers, surfers and families with young children, and the sight of Atlantic rollers breaking onto the foreshore will hold you spellbound even on a winter's day.

Single storey, inside Surf Cottage's granite stone walls lies a spacious open design living room where squashy sofas rest on a natural slate floor; the kitchen boasts a generous range of oak cabinets with glossy black granite worktops, and washing up is never a chore when standing at the Belfast sink looking out to sea!

A beautifully fitted bathroom and two tasteful bedrooms add to the comfort.

An outside shower is useful for sluicing down children and wetsuits after a day on the beach.

Bounded by a low wall with picket gates at each end there is security for very young children to play on the patio, whilst the cove with its breaking surf and intriguing rock pools to be explored at low tide, is an ample playground for all.

Portreath is a small yet vibrant resort with a choice of shops, traditional pubs, cafes and restaurants.

Breathtaking walks along the coastal footpath over windswept headlands provide an opportunity to experience the majestic beauty of the Cornish coastline.

The 18 hole parkland golf course at Tehidy Park Golf Club is within a ten minute drive and the must-see seaside resorts of Porthtowan, St Ives, St Agnes are all within a 30 minute drive.

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.
