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

It was tricky to find it first time especially if you are on the SatNav. Where the Satnav says " you'll arrive on your destination on the left " go further until you find a small, discreet road on your right. Make a right on to that road up hill and you see a signage that says " North Coast Holiday Cottages ". Don't make a right on the signage. Its the next right actually. Our cottage was lovely with the best of views. Nice open plan arrangement provided lots of space for us to work around what suits us best. Amenities and appliances are all excellent. Staff were very friendly too. Wifi is available but not the best so i would not expect it to be super considering the location of the site. Although, 3G and 4G coverage is very good for your mobile network ( we're with 3 ). The area is conveniently located. 5mins to the lovely Portreath Beach, 15-17mins to Porthawan Beach. Truro, Falmouth, Redruth and sorrounding areas are all within 5-20mins away. The closest supermarket is tesco which just about 5mins away which should cater for all food and drinks need. The Fal River Cruise is a must. It was a nice experience for us. Just hope the weather is great when you go. Our cottage has a jacuzzi which was great to have for relaxation after all the driving around ( not to mention the almost 6 hour drive from London ) The site is quiet and far from the noises of the road. This is definitely a good base for your stay in Cornwall. I would easily recommend it to anyone who is looking for a great place to stay for a holiday in cornwall. And a piece of advice for husbands and boyfriends holidaying with their missus, turn a blind eye when driving past TR16 4HN, although its a challenge if you are staying for a week. I eventually gave in. Lol. Have a lovely stay as we did.

The quality of the fixtures and fittings are excellent. It is a fine location for surf and sand at the close by beaches of Porteath and Porthtowan and several others within 10 miles. If you prefer to relax at home the 3 acres of ground provide areas to play or just chill by yourself. There were up to eight of us staying ages from teens to seventies and everyone would move there tomorrow given a chance. Well done DALGOVER but p!ease get the council to do something about the lane. Kind regards Ken and family.

Everything was just fine and clean- just as we expected it. Paul and Angela were also very kind and helpful. We would recommend Lavender cottage without exception.
