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 harbour view is nice, the cottage is very warm and comfortable and the pub nearby is a real bonus. It serves great food and the staff are warm and welcoming. The local Chinese is great and my nephews love the beach. It's great for rock pooling, has soft sand and decent surf. Portreath is at one end of the Cornish coast to coast cycle path which we have enjoyed using. It's on an old tramway so not as challenging as it sounds!

Lovely beach suitable for dog lovers out of summer season. The property certainly had everything you could want for a break away. I particularly loved the limited phone signal! Immediate local walks breathtaking as had some awesome autumnal weather.

They seem to have thought of everything, including a 'proper' downstairs shower room for rinsing off when back from the beach, wet suits, a washer and dryer, so you will want for nothing. All the fittings are of a very good quality, with good wifi, a smart tv (to keep the kids quiet!!) and a lovely little bathroom. The accommodation is a little bijou but it was easily big enough for a young family of four and really, what more would you need? The view is unbelievable...we fell asleep listening to the waves, and woke up to them too. We enjoyed going on the beach everyday; and what a beach it is! Only a few hundred yards walk down the hill from the house and you're on the beach with its golden sands and fantastic surf....absolutely perfect! I cannot stress enough how much we enjoyed our stay here and we were all very sorry to leave.... We are already looking to go again next year!
