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.

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.

Clean, tidy perfect for families.

5 of 5
The apartment was absolutely brilliant for what we needed. Clean, tidy and plenty of space. Sarah was so helpful in organising our stay and answering any questions we had.

Beautiful cottage and great location.

5 of 5
The cottage was ideal for the two of us and our Labrador. Well furnished and equipped with everything we needed. Jo dealt with the booking quickly and efficiently and all was ready for us including a few essentials like milk, tea and coffee and the wood burner ready to light with a starter supply of logs and kindling. The location is ideal for trips to all areas of S and SW Cornwall with Porthleven just a short trip away. We were lucky to have great weather in October but the cottage would be very comfortable winter or summer. Would recommend it as a great cosy hideaway for a young or old couple and very dog friendly (including the local pub at Breage!).
