Overlooking Portreath’s narrow working harbour, where boats bob up and down with the tide, Kittiwake is ideally located for waterside strolls, days on the beach, or just sitting at the balcony window watching the passing boats.
The apartment is located on the first floor of a terrace of harbour-side apartments, with views, from the Juliet balcony, over the harbour and out to sea. There is seating for four around a Mediterranean style table, plus a well-equipped kitchen, comfy sofa, tv and board games. The apartment sleeps three, with a double bed in the master bedroom and a single in the smaller room, all with lovely cotton sheets. The master bedroom has views over the harbour. The bathroom has a bath with shower. Bath towels and hand towels are provided, but we do ask guests to bring their own towels for use on the beach.
There is private parking for one car.
Nestled between the dramatic cliffs of the North Cornwall coast, just where the Cornish peninsula is at its narrowest, Portreath is a relatively undiscovered little town, with a select but loyal following of families, surfers and bodyboarders who return year after year. It has a long, clean beach, summer lifeguard service, plenty of pubs, cafes and bakeries -- and great fish and chips. There are also spectacular cliff walks for hikers, while many old tram roads, once used to transport ore from the local mines, have been converted into car-free cycle trails. What is more, its location is perfect for those who want to explore Cornwall – St Ives, Penzance, Mousehole, Lands’ End, the Minack theatre in the cliffs above Porthcurno, and the famous Eden Project and Lost Gardens of Heligan, can all be visited in easy day trips.
