    “The toilet door needs attention, we didn’t shut it with the fear of not being able to open it.”

    The sofa is very old and very uncomfortable. We got a screw in our tyre that we picked up from the fence above which cost us over £140 to have fixed. The kitchen lacks quite a lot of things compared to other cottages that we have stayed in and the bed linen is really old. But on saying that the location of the cottage is fantastic and I think your paying for the view.

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

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.
