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

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.

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

Beautiful location, fantastic accommodation and the jacuzzi was a real bonus! Our 2 dogs were in their element going for beach walks and exercise in the big field behind the cottages. Highly recommended, we would definitely go again.

The cottage was very clean on arrival and is very well maintained and has all modern appliances throughout. All towels and linens were of a very good quality and the main bed was one of the most comfortable I've slept in. Portreath is well positioned and in easy reach of Redruth, Truro, Lands End and Pads town (45 minutes). We will definitely try and stay at Camellia Cottage again when we are in Cornwall.
