Make a self catering cottage or holiday rental in Portreath, Cornwall your home away from home

The charming village of Portreath lies on the north coast of Cornwall between Redruth and Camborne. Once a small fishing village, it became a bustling port in the heyday of tin and copper mining in the area. The first harbour dates back to 1713, although it has since been replaced. Boats are guided into the harbour through the notoriously difficult entrance from the building known as the Pepper Pot.

Portreath has a small sandy beach and a tidal swimming pool beneath the harbour wall. Battery Hill looks down on the beach and was once where cannons where placed in the 18th century.

Things to Do in Portreath, Cornwall Explore National Trust Gardens

Cornwall has some exceptional gardens full of colour in the spring with primroses, camellias, azaleas and exotic flowering trees. In the summer the herbaceous beds are a delightful sight. Glendurgan Garden and Trelissick Garden are two of the most lovely, both just a short drive from your Portreath holiday rental.

Golf

One of the best ways to enjoy the rolling countryside and sea views is from one of the local golf clubs. Play a round at Radnor Golf Centre, 3 miles from Porthreath or at Tehidy Park Golf Club, just down the road from your vacation home in Portreath.

Beaches

Some of the best surfing in Britain can be found along this Atlantic coast. Porthtowan, 3 miles away, hosts the annual SAS Rip Curl Cornish and Open Longboard Championship. There is a local surf club and a hire shop for equipment, boards and wet suits right on the beach.

Places to Visit Near Portreath, Cornwall

St Ives

Sprawling up the hillside above its two main beaches, St Ives is a quaint Cornish village with tiny fishermen’s cottages lining the narrow streets. The town has been attracting artists for decades and the Tate Gallery opened here in 1993. Its purpose-built building is as interesting as the artworks themselves with spectacular sea views from the café terrace.

Holywell Bay Fun Park

This family fun park advertises itself as the place to ride, slide, splash and have fun. With go-karts, battle boats and Merlin’s Maze it is the perfect place for family fun whatever the weather.

Eden Project

This unique project is located in a former clay pit. Giant biomes create different climates and grow Tropical and Mediterranean plants in a re-created setting, complete with a waterfall and full-size trees. A café and outdoor gardens make this a fabulous day out.

Weather in Portreath, Cornwall

Located in the far southwest of England and influenced by the Gulf Stream, Cornwall generally has mild winters along the coast and reasonably warm summers. Average temperatures throughout the year range from 8-19°C (46-66°F) with the heaviest rain falling between October and February.

The area is also accessible by rail to Redruth and Camborne stations, both just 4 miles from your holiday home rental at Portreath.

It was perfect, couldn't ask for anything more!

Anthea, the owner, met us on arrival and showed us around the property. She left us a welcome hamper with essentials and extras in which I felt was very thoughtful. The apartment itself was ideal, we had everything we needed and more. The views from the property are stunning whether it's sunny or not. We loved it and would definitely go back again! Thank you Anthea and Ryan for everything 😀
