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

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

Great little bungalow

4 of 5
The bungalow was clean and tidy. There are a lots of steps up to the property, but not a problem for us. It was perfect for us, we were visiting family who lived locally and convenient for our stay. WiFi was quick and free. The beach is 2 minute walk away and you can see the sea from the bungalow. The reason I did not give it a five star where just little things, the knives in the kitchen were blunt so chopping food was a real task and time consuming and the mattress on one of the bunk beds was very uncomfortable. Otherwise I would recommend as a place to anyone. Four people I would say is the max as it is small. We were two adults and a 3 year old so perfect.

Great views, nice place to stay!

5 of 5
The views from every room except the bathroom are amazing. Comfortable and spacious place to stay. Good location to explore other parts of Cornwall. The beach is lovely, and only a short walk away. The only slightly negative point I'd make about the beach would only affect people who don't like dogs: Despite the signs saying dogs are not allowed, we saw lots of dogs every day, especially in the evening.
