A patio table and 4 chairs are provided on each patio during the summer months that enable guests to enjoy any meal from breakfast to supper, or simply to enjoy a few drinks and nibbles while reflecting on the day’s adventures.

The West Country region
Said to be one of the UK's most beautiful counties, Cornwall boasts long stunning beaches as well as sheltered and secluded coves, moors, woods, rivers, streams and a strong mining heritage.
It is also the home of the world renowned Eden Project, the Tate Modern at St Ives and the Lost Gardens of Heligan.
Portreath is a small resort of historical interest with an easily accessible beach and a narrow harbour, located about 5 miles north of the old mining centre of Redruth. It was once a busy port, importing coal and exporting copper but now only sheltering the occasional fishing boat.
Set within a picturesque valley of woods, streams and rural meadow-land, the pretty, sandy beach is a popular family beach with lifeguards on duty throughout the summer months. Like many beaches on the north Cornish coast, it is popular with surfers and in particular body-boarders. Wetsuits and boards can be hired locally within the village.
There are several shops (including One-Stop, Post Office, Newsagents and Bakery), cafés and three public houses in Portreath, as well as a very fine Cantonese take-away restaurant. The village has a very friendly atmosphere and caters for most needs of tourists, whilst not being over-commercialised.
This is good walking country, with the South West Coastal Path passing through the village. Enjoy beautiful views from the spectacular cliffs, or meander along the leafy paths of Tehidy Country Park about 1 mile away, one of the many woodland walks that extend inland.
For cyclists, the mineral tramway, which transported copper and tin from the inland mines to Portreath's tiny harbour, is now a footpath and cycleway connecting Portreath to Devoran near the south coast.
There are various sports and leisure facilities within a short drive of the village. These include indoor swimming pools, squash, badminton and outdoor bowls. There are six local golf courses, one within a mile, and several centres for horse riding, two with indoor facilities.
