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.

The location of the house on the cliff edge did not prepare us for it's amazing views and sense of peace and tranquility. The secret garden trail was a wonderment in itself with so much to explore. The vantage points along the way did not fail to please and were often our 'morning cuppa' rendezvous'. Wildlife and spring flowers were in abundance here, in particular the bluebells, gorse, nesting ravens and gulls on the cliff edge, linnets, stonechats and buzzards on show daily whilst we relaxed in the garden or hot tub ( so pleased that i remembered to bring my binoculars!!). Everything that we could have needed was provided in this stunning home, from kitchen utensils and appliances (which were uncannily like my own) to an abundance of books and dvds (again, very similar in taste to ours). We felt at home from the moment that we stepped inside Battery house. So tastefully decorated, warm and welcoming. Spotlessly clean, comfortable and an exquisite home. Only wished that we could have stayed longer. For those of us that were lucky enough to find Battery House during the short time that it is available we feel blessed. Many thanks for opening up your home and trusting 'us' to look after it whilst you are away.

Touches such as the picnic basket, BBQ facilities and Sonos sound system were all enjoyed. We enjoyed many moments on the beach and beautiful sunsets. We hope to return again soon
