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.

The house was also well located for us to explore Cornwall and we very much enjoyed our stay. Thank you for making everything so easy and the welcome pack was much appreciated.

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!

It was large enough for the three of us and comfortable. There was a good car parking area, spacious lounge and large kitchen diner. We had easy access to all parts of the south west of Cornwall and could visit all the local sights. The bungalow was clean and warm and the owner was kind enough to leave us some welcome gifts which was appreciated after a long journey. The owner was contactable when we needed to ask for some advice and all in all this bungalow ideally suited our needs. Thank you. From David & Christine
