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

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.

                                                              Very charming cottage, ideal for families

                                                              We spent a wonderful week as family in this beautiful cottage. Everything was as expected from the booking, no surprises, rather exceeding expectations. The house is well renovated, stricking the right balance between modern comfort and legacy atmosphere. We really felt at home. The location is quite and we could explore Cornwall from there within reasonable distances in all directions. The only thing we struggled with was to find a pub in the surrounding communities that we would have liked equally to the cottage. Overall, a very enjoyable stay! Fantastic cottage!

                                                              Great view but you need to be fit!!!

                                                              4 of 5
                                                              The bungalow is accessed via a flight of steep concrete steps and then a very steep path, loading and unloading the car was a better than a gym workout. Description states not suitable for infirm but I would also consider it unsuitable for young children. The bungalow was clean and tidy but quite dated and basic. Heating is by 1 storage heater in the main room and an assortment of electric heaters. Bedroom 2 has a double bed that almost fills the room and can only be accessed from 1 side, there is a very small wardrobe and a bedside chest, it is very compact. Bedroom 2 is a bit larger and the bed can be accessed from either side, small wardrobe and chest. Blankets and pillows are supplied and you can hire sheets if required. There is a folding bed in bedroom 1 but the only place it could be used is in the living room. The living room is four armchairs and a small TV on the wall (limited channels) this room could really benefit from a coffee table and small bookcase or storage unit as there is nowhere to put anything! The kitchen has all you need, dishwasher, microwave, washing machine, small tumble dryer and electric cooker, and a selection of cooking utensils and cutlery. Good size dining table and chairs. Nice shower room with electric shower (not much pressure) but functional. Overall we had a good stay, the views are worth the climb!
