  • “The location is very good next to the beach but be aware that it is a very busy beach, even in the last week in september there are people walking by the whole time even really early on a morning there were 2 people talking outside the window which set the dog off barking.”

    I would imagine in the summer months it wouldn't be a great place if you wanted peace and quiet or if you have a particulary protective dog. ...

    I would imagine in the summer months it wouldn't be a great place if you wanted peace and quiet or if you have a particulary protective dog. The cottage ittself is fine but could do with some TLC feels a bit tired but well equipped. Faye the owner is really nice and friendly. Portreath is very small there is only one supermarket a couple of pubs and couple of cafes. I should have perhaps done more homework as I was expecting something larger. Saying that the food at all these places is good.We had a good week in spite of a couple of days of rain and wind but perhaps not a place to revisit as we like a bit more variety.

The property

You can't be nearer the sea than this!

Literally on the beach on the wild west coast of Cornwall, mid-way between St Ives and Newquay, Surf Cottage holds a stunning position.

Commanding full vantage across the picturesque cove, the location is idyllic for beach lovers, surfers and families with young children, and the sight of Atlantic rollers breaking onto the foreshore will hold you spellbound even on a winter's day.

Breathtaking walks along the coastal footpath over windswept headlands provide an opportunity to experience the majestic beauty of the Cornish coastline.

Single storey, inside Surf Cottage's granite stone walls lies a spacious open design living room where squashy sofas rest on a natural slate floor; the kitchen boasts a generous range of oak cabinets with glossy black granite worktops, and washing up is never a chore when standing at the Belfast sink looking out to sea!

A beautifully fitted bathroom and two tasteful bedrooms add to the comfort.

Bounded by a low wall with picket gates at each end there is security for very young children to play on the patio, whilst the cove with its breaking surf and intriguing rock pools to be explored at low tide, is an ample playground for all.

An outside shower is useful for sluicing down children and wetsuits after a day on the beach.

Restaurants, small shops and three pubs are within walking distance.

There is private off road parking for three cars.

About the location


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.
