  • “Nice cottage located next door to the Feadon wildlife park and adjacent Landal Gwel an Mor holiday cottages (large holiday resort, but based on log cabins so quite nice to be next to).”

    Cottage located in a cul de sac, parking on loose gravel outside and space enough for two cars, but you have to avoid the entrance to the adjacent private property. After the initial contact with the owners asking if we wanted them to do the laundry at the end of the first week, we were left to our own devices. Facilities in the cottage are fine, including a small BBQ. Description needs updating to state the removal of the games and books etc re Covid and we were told that we could'nt use the ...

    Cottage located in a cul de sac, parking on loose gravel outside and space enough for two cars, but you have to avoid the entrance to the adjacent private property. After the initial contact with the owners asking if we wanted them to do the laundry at the end of the first week, we were left to our own devices. Facilities in the cottage are fine, including a small BBQ. Description needs updating to state the removal of the games and books etc re Covid and we were told that we could'nt use the facilities in the holiday park next door when we went there and asked, also due to Covid. Rubbish wasnt collected for some reason on the first week - we did put out as instructed - so we were left juggling quite a few rubbish bags defending them from the local wildlife. The cottage could do with a maintenance update, as the kickboards underneath a few cabinets in the kitchen kept falling down making up jump, plus the cottage on arrival was a bit cobwebby. The shower seal on the shower panel also needs a look at, as it doesnt meet the bath well enough, plus there was mold on the high ceiling in the bathroom and bottom of the bathroom door. Some out of date food (oil etc) was left on the shelves. Owners kindly left a bottle of wine and a cake on arrival, which was very nice. Cottage is also opposite privately owned, or local council owned property and the guy in there is a bit ignorant, but generally just ignores you. As usual beaches are dog restrictive we took our dog before 10am and after 6pm, but it comes a bit 'dog-land', so if your dog doesnt like other dogs its hard work. Local walks are great, as you can walk down to the sea within 15 minutes. All in all we had a lovely stay.

The property

Incline Cottage lies in a cluster of detached properties high above Portreath's scenic cove, perfectly positioned to explore the many beautiful beaches and villages along north Cornwall's picturesque coastline.

Portreath village centres around its harbour and sandy beach popular among families and surfers.

The village also has friendly shops and cafes to keep hunger and thirst at bay after a fun time in the sunshine.

The coastal footpath south to Bassets Cove is a five mile amble there and back, with exhilarating, cliff top views.

The path to Porthtowan is a four mile trip - a famed surfing beach with golden sands and rolling dunes.

Tehidy Country Park is less than a mile away and offers a change of scenery with woodland nature trails, ponds and lakes where you can pony trek or cycle.

Incline Cottage, approached by a driveway leading down to holiday lodges, dates back to 1870 with a mineral tramway heritage.

It boasts generous accommodation over two floors with contemporary furnishings.

There are two sitting rooms, one with a wood burning stove for all season warmth, and a super kitchen/dining room for social gatherings over a midmorning coffee or afternoon cream tea.

There is a short flight of steep stairs which lead up to the two attractive bedrooms.

At the front is an enclosed garden with a lawn, and to the rear is a private walled patio and decked area with table and chairs; an excellent spot for alfresco dining or barbecue magic.

A 15 minute drive will take you to picturesque St Agnes, a coastal village with a thriving community with good shops, galleries and four fabulous, unique beaches.

Lively Newquay has attractions for all ages, and is within a 40 minute drive.

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.

Note: Stairs is a little steep with shorter than average treads.
Note: Please note there are roadworks taking place on the cul-de-sac for 6 weeks as of 1st November.
