Christmas & New Year 2015 availability!!
Slipway Cottage is a 3 bedroom terraced property offering a certain amount of quiet charm being far more spacious internally than one would initially expect from a modern terraced property! It has been lovingly & thoughtfully renovated to provide a safe,easily cleaned ,practical & uncluttered 'holiday home away from home'!
Upstairs...the comfortable sleeping accommodation comprises 1 double & 1 single bedroom to the front aspect enjoying harbour/sea views & to the sunny rear a twin single whose 2 beds can be slid together to provide a makeshift super king size double if required.
All rooms are light & airy having ample wardrobe & draw space.
The combined family bathroom has a corner step-in bath with electric shower over,flush toilet & hand basin.
An infant's pine wood cot is available & can be easily assembled & positioned in the double bedroom.
All bed linen & house use only towels are provided.
Downstairs there is a large open lounge with comfortable sofa seating for 5 warmed by a multi-fuel stove for those cosy evenings in when the light evenings shorten & become cooler!
There's a TV & DVD/CD player & selection of DVDs/CDs & books.
There's a nice view to the harbour too!
The kitchen-diner has a range of modern wall/base units & work surfaces with electric oven & hob,microwave, dishwasher, fridge,freezer,toaster & a selection of those helpful electrical items & kitchen utensils with enough crockery & table place settings for 6+ persons.
The front porch can be your temporary peaceful office/work space with a calming view across the harbour when those important business calls whilst away from the office are an unfortunate fact of modern life:(
The small raised patio garden & seating area is a great place to take a leisurely breakfast in the warm morning sunshine watching the comings & goings of the local boatmen & Celtic Ocean tides! If you're fortunate...one can occasionally catch a glimpse of an inquisitive & hungry seal or diving sea bird taking their breakfast as well;)
To the rear of the property is an enclosed & private decking/seating area where you can catch some Cornish sun rays,enjoy a good book with a glass of wine & unwind or quietly snooze away your lazy afternoons!.Makes a perfect spot for the yoga practitioner!
There's a clothes drying area for hanging your freshly laundered items & wetsuits,swim/beach wear which can be washed through in the water tub provided or rinsed under the handy cold water outdoor shower.
BT Broadband internet wi-fi & all power are included along with a reasonable supply of seasoned logs for the wood burning stove during winter lets!
All bed linen & house use only towels are provided so you only need bring your own beach towels!
The rear decking/access & ground floor is designed to be as far as practical wheelchair friendly.The stairs are reasonably easy going with safety handrails to both sides & an infants stair gate is fitted along with emergency/night time lighting/heat/smoke alarms for your groups safety & peace of mind!
For reasons of personal preference,compulsory insurance stipulations & the enjoyment of my guests to follow Slipway Cottage is strictly a no smoking (and recreational drugs ) free zone! Please respect my wishes & be prepared to refrain from these activities!
For dog/pet owners....please note that no pets are normally permitted....again please respect my wishes.
Parking for 1 standard sized car is normally available immediately to the rear of the property.If however this is not the case there has always been enough free space somewhere to be found in the very close proximity of the property in the safe-up-to-now residents/visitors free parking area immediately adjacent or out on the public road parking zone a short 20 seconds walk away until space becomes available!
Portreath has a lovely white sand beach being patrolled by RNLI life guards from May-September(exact dates vary) thus making it an ideal beach based family holiday destination.The South West Coast Path & Mineral Tramway Bike Trail are literally on your doorstep for those wishing to be rather more active & go explore for the day! It's easy to go for a quick early surf or beachcomb the white sands before taking breakfast on the harbourside patio where in summer you can catch the sun rise & with clear evenings a beautiful unobscured sunset:)

Nature is all around as well as a wealth of UNESCO historical Mining Heritage sites.Just a few minutes drive away is the local woodland public recreation area/parkland golf club at Tehidy.
