The property

Trotters sits two miles from the Atlantic coastline's superb coves and beaches. Cocooned by lush landscape views and with the choice of beach and countryside for entertainment, families and friends will enjoy this very spacious and homely barn conversion bolt-hole.


The beach and narrow harbour at Portreath is reached within minutes by car. The mile long stretch of sand make this a favoured swimming and surfing destination, with seasonal lifeguards on patrol. Seek refreshment at the town's café, pub or restaurant or ramble the South West Coast Path - with excellent views of cliff faces, rock formations and sea. Adjacent to Portreath is Illogan Woods, ideal for a gentle circular stroll to the 14th Century church tower. Follow the nature trails on cycle or foot around the ponds and lake amidst Tehidy Country Park's 250 acres of woodlands, or tee off at the nearby golf club. There is an array of beaches and coves to discover as you head eastwards; Porthtowan, Trevaunance Cove at St Agnes, Perranporth and Newquay are all a short drive away with beach bars, cafes and inns for pit-stop pasties, traditional ales and seaside feasts. Hire surf gear and take lessons with one of the surf schools. Heading west from Portreath are the postcard perfect destinations of St Ives and Land's End. Window-shop the galleries and gift shops along St Ives cobbled lanes, with four gorgeous beaches and pretty harbour. Striking Land's End delivers amazing seascapes across the rugged cliff tops, with attractions for all ages.
