We had a really lovely week at number 6. It was clean, modern and had everything we needed. Really useful to have two fridges. Would definitely recommend it. (Our Citreon C4 grand Picasso could just fit in the garage which was great.)

Holidays in Portreath

A perfect retreat all year round, self catering holidays in Portreath offer beautiful coastal walks along the spectacular cliffs towards St Ives Bay passing Deadman’s Cove, Ralph’s Cupboard and Hell’s Mouth, all bearing testament to tales of shipwrecks and smuggling.

Located just 5 miles North of Redruth, Portreath (meaning sandy cove) is a great place to explore the stunning scenery of the North Cornwall coastline. This part of Cornwall is renowned for its beautiful walks, and Portreath is no different. Walk east to Porthtowan or West to Basset’s Cove; either way you’ll be treated to gorgeous views. 

With excellent road links, you can easily reach Truro, Newquay, St Ives, the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan. Holiday cottages in Portreath make a great base from which to explore all that Cornwall has to offer.

Did you know...

Portreath was one of the busiest and most important mining ports in Cornwall?

Portreath beach

If you fancy staying put, a trip to the beach offers a great family day out. Portreath beach is lifeguarded during the summer and as such is popular with families. It’s also ideal for surfing, and is a popular surf spot with the locals. There are surf shops, beach shops, cafés, a fish and chip shop and toilets on the beachfront with other facilities including 3 pubs, a bakery and a post office/general store in the village itself. Dogs are welcome on the beach in the off-season.

Just off the beach at Portreath is the tiny island of Gull Rock. Home to a variety of bird species this is a good spot for birdwatchers if you can get a close enough view!

Kayakers can venture to the east and west and to offshore islands where you can experience the views of the coastline from a different perspective, visit secluded beaches and explore caves in the cliff face. West Cornwall Adventures are on hand to show you the ropes at kayaking, surfing and coasteering for anyone who fancies a go. The surf shop by the beach hires out wet suits and watersports equipment and also offers surfing and bodyboarding lessons.

With a stream running into the sea, and a distinctive harbour, Portreath is a beautiful place to enjoy a holiday. Portreath’s first harbour was built in 1713 by mining adventurers needing a port for their minerals. The remnants of the second harbour that made Portreath a coastal port in 1760 still exist today. 

Things to do near Portreath

Just outside Portreath, Tehidy Country Park has 250 acres of woodland, lakes, bridleways, cycling and nature trails with several ponds and a lake with an array of waterfowl. Illogan Woods is adjacent to Portreath with picturesque bubbling streams and a circular walk leading to the 14th century church tower of Illogan.

If you haven’t brought your bike with you, cycle hire is available on the road to nearby Porthtowan, which means you’ve got no excuse not to take advantage of the cycling trails in the area. From your holiday cottage in Portreath, you can cycle The Mining Trail path (Bissoe Trail) that follows the old tram lines across the county from coast to coast, finishing up at Devoran resting on Restronguet Creek just a few miles from Truro Cathedral.

We had a really lovely week at number 6. It was clean, modern and had everything we needed. Really useful to have two fridges. Would definitely recommend it. (Our Citreon C4 grand Picasso could just fit in the garage which was great.)

No 6 is a lovely holiday home. Very close to the beach. Furnished to a high standard, with everything you could need. A good kitchen with all appliances working to a high standard. Comfortable seating and beds. Crisp white sheets and lovely white towels. Great shower. Only thing is our estate car didn’t fit into the garage. Great holiday and would stay again. C Morton (family of 4)

We had a fab time here, would return for sure. Excellent location and lovely chippy near by. Great service by Aspects and Becky the house keeper. Loved our holiday and can’t wait to return.

Our party was a family of four (2+2)

A lovely home from home. Location fantastic (a stone's throw from the beach)

Property was spotless on arrival and well stocked (kitchen had utensils galore, two fridges, freezer, washing machine and dishwasher - lounge stocked activities such as books and board games to keep young minds occupied. TV offerings were very generous - host shared Netflix, Amazon prime TV, NOWtv and sports channels galore - ace)

We loved the hosts welcome pack which provided recommended walks and local facilities and amenities.

On street parking is restricted - due to beach location - so make sure to use the garage provided (was a squeeze to fit our SUV but it did fit)

The location is great as a base to explore further afield in Cornwall too. We visited many a beach, rock pool, Flambards theme park and other local attractions.

Only thing we would have preferred would have been a little more sun but we avoided rain!

Advice: check in and check out days are commonly Saturday. Give some thought, when planning your journeys, to set off a little earlier and avoid the traffic. We were very fortunate to avoid traffic jams in general but did see some frustrated looking drivers on the other side of the road at times!

All in all a wonderful holiday and a fantastic place to call 'home' for the week. Thoroughly recommend

No.6 is not chi-chi and doesn’t pretend to be so, it is a lovely down to earth base from which to enjoy everything this part of Cornwall has to offer. Sure you could pay more and be in somewhere far prettier and fancier but why bother when it has everything you could possibly want literally on your doorstep and inside. A great little find.

Really clean, comfortable and well equipped property in a great location. We had a great family holiday and I would highly recommend this cottage.

The holiday booking was straight forward, aspect have a good selection of properties of good standard all in great locations. The service was good throughout from point of booking, during our stay and on departure.

This property is in a brilliant location with a lovely garden. There is a garage for car parking which was ideal for our Fiesta. Overall it was a great holiday home!
