The property

This divine and cosy Cornish cottage sits within minutes of golden Portreath Beach and the north Atlantic coastline. Nuzzled amongst an attractive terrace of homestays at the foot of the cliff, this cheery and welcoming retreat ticks all the boxes for a coastal escape for family, friends and couples seeking both recreation and relaxation. Popular Portreath has shops for provisions, cafes, a deli, coffee hideouts and inns. This little resort has a chirpy vibe and the sandy beach with dinky harbour is well loved, with a stream running across the sands and excellent surf for bodyboarders. Scenic rambles are guaranteed from atop the South West Coastal footpath which showcases magical seascapes. Walk to Bassets Cove (five miles there and back) or head northbound to lively Porthtowan, a four mile stroll through beautiful scenery. Once there, reward yourself with refreshment in the Blue Bar café and restaurant, tucked aside the dunes with big ocean vista. The stunning country park at Tehidy boasts miles of cycle/bridle path nature trails for exploration.


The north Atlantic coastline is a hot spot destination. Discover St Agnes and Travaunance Cove, Perranporth, Newquay and Watergate Bay, all reached within a short car journey. Dramatic landmark attraction Land's End is a must see, with a pit stop first at St Ives for a browse along the lanes, packed with boutiques, galleries, gift shops and eateries: fish and chips, local seafood, pasties and ice-cream, hearty pub grub and restaurants will tickle every tastebud. St Ives also boasts four beautiful beaches and the little harbour.


Pebble Cottage boasts a fusion of contemporary and character accommodation. The sitting room with wood burner and beams is a restful spot, leading into the modern kitchen. The spacious sunroom doubles as the dining room, overlooking the pretty garden of patio and pebbles, with summerhouse for secure storage of surf gear and cycles. A safe space for children and pets to play, it's also an ideal spot for blue sky feasts, coffees and an evening glass of wine. Both bedrooms ooze comfort and ample storage. The ground floor shower room is perfectly placed after a day of sun, sea and sand.

About the location

PORTREATH

Truro 14 miles; St Ives 15 miles.

With its sheltered harbour, beautiful Portreath was, in the 1800s, a hive of activity and industry as a major tin-exporting port. Today, the village attracts visitors from around the world with its wild and rugged coastline. High cliffs, secluded coves and sandy, surf-washed beaches typify the area while all around are reminders of the area's rich industrial heritage. Portreath offers a small fishing harbour, shops, a number of pubs, three cafés and a Chinese restaurant, while its safe, sheltered sandy beach is a popular attraction. For a great day out, visit the cathedral city of Truro with its cobbled streets, shopping centre, theatre, museum and great restaurants, just 14 miles away, or travel a few miles along the coast and follow the vast expanse of sandy beach, which leads down to Hayle and on to St Ives. A delightful holiday location.
