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 cottage was really clean and very comfortable with stunning views across the harbour and out to sea through the upstairs side window. We were very lucky with the weather too. Although it was very windy, we had a sunny and dry week. The only issue we had was that the towel rail didn't work in the bathroom, so we had to dry the towels over the radiators. We also felt that a full length mirror in one of the rooms would be really beneficial. All in all we had a great week and would certainly recommend the cottage. Lynda & Geoff Gill.

Accommodation adequately equipped, including games room and extra shower, convenient for wetsuits/surfboards etc. Wouldn't hesitate in recommending this accommodation.
