This Accommodation was a real find! Great location for touring Cornwall and the property well presented and good size rooms for all . A great place for a family holiday and will certainly becoming back

Mr Andrew R,

Easy booking service and I was able to find out more information about the property from the local team easily. The cottage was beautifully clean and the location was great for exploring in all directions. Fabulous scenery and walks from the doorstep on the Great Flat Lode with its mining history. Lovely owners who went the extra mile for our Christmas visit.

Mrs Annabel L,

Fantastic cottage in a beautiful location. Setting has beautiful views of Cornwall and only a few minutes from main route through Cornwall. The owners were very welcoming and had made extra efforts to provide things for our arrival such as scones, bread, jams and juice. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this property. It is spacious, idyllic and clean. We visited many places during our stay, including Not Eden Project, Bedruthan Steps, Padstow, Lands End and St Ives. All within easily drivable distance.

Mr Jonathan C,


Portreath is a small village centred on the harbour and large beach with all the local amenities you could wish for nearby including a local supermarket, surf/beach shops, Post Office, bakery, tearoom and several pubs serving fantastic local cuisine.

The pretty, sandy beach here is popular with families and surfers alike, as like many of the beaches on the west Cornish coast, this beach offers good surfing conditions. Portreath also featured in the Marine Conservation Society Good Beach Guide Recommended 2014 for its excellent water quality. Please note dogs are welcome on this beach expect between Easter- October each year.
