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 owners have really set a high standard in the furnishings and fixtures making for a very comfortable and convenient holiday. The location is very quiet with lots of wild birds and the badgers too. Ann and Graham are very welcoming and immensely helpful. We will be back!

Communication with Mark before hand was great and made sure everything ran smoothly when we were there. The hot tub and pool room are brilliant added extras and provided lots of entertainment. The location of the house is great, we have always loved Portreath! It was also fully equipped with everything we needed. Thank you for a lovely stay.

The view of the full moon over the sea from our bedroom was magical. Pat and Keith have thought of everything and we would not hesitate to recommend this holiday home to anyone. They will even accommodate small children and well behaved pets. A lovely little private garden overlooking fields. Just perfick!
