The Tree House
About the home
A spacious two bedroom bungalow which allows you to wake up and look out of the window to the Harbour and across to Gull Rock. Having eaten breakfast on the sun deck you can then take a short five minute walk down to the beach. In the evening it is back to the house, grab a drink and enjoy an alfresco dinner while watching the sun set over the sea. For those cooler spring, autumn and winter evenings there's a big wood burning stove in the living room for cosy nights in.
The property also benefits from being a 5 minute walk from Gwel an Mor and its' indoor pool and spa facilities which can be used by non residents all year round. Tehidy Golf Club and country park is also just a stones throw away.
The house offers the opportunity for fantastic, safe family holidays. The beach of Portreath is relatively sheltered and offers summer long lifeguard cover. There are also many fantastic walks which can be started in the village or from the house itself either along the famous coastal path, the acres of woodlands surrounding the house or follow the old mining tramway inland. There are many tourist attractions which can all be accessed via a short drive from the house.
There are several local pubs within a short walk that serve good food and have live music. The surrounding area also has a range of cafes, restaurants and take aways serving everything from Chinese to locally caught fish. There's a more upmarket restaurant 'The Terrace' in the 5* Eco resort, Gwel an Mor, a 5 minute walk from the house.

The West Country / Cornwall region
One of the UK's most beautiful places, the county of Cornwall is a must see. With the long, wild stunning beaches of the North Coast and the beautiful timeless coastal villages of the south, the region can offer something for everyone.
As well as the world famous tourist attractions of the Eden project and the Tate St Ives, Cornwall also boasts many other high quality attractions perfect for those days off the beach.
The new section of dual carriageway on the A30 allows even quicker access to the county.
The Portreath area
The village of Portreath is known for its' harbour where all of the ore mined in the surrounding areas left the county on its way to the rest of the world. Being in a central location within Cornwall everywhere is within a short drive.
The village offers a beautiful lifeguarded beach, surrounded by high cliffs and the fantastic coastal path which winds it way around the edge of Cornwall and Devon.
With attractions varying from the Cider Farm and Paradise Park, to the Gold centre and several National Trust properties, there is enough to keep everyone happy on a day away from the beach.
How to get there

From the A30 take the exit for Redruth and Portreath. Follow the signs for Portreath and after about two miles you will enter the village. Take the first left turn after the primary school(on your left), follow this road up the hill and round to the right. Then take the left just before the house which looks like a little castle! Again up the sharp hill and park in the parking bay between the garages.
Our house is up the first set of steps on your left as you walk up the red brick paved track. The steps are worth the view I promise!

The views from this place are just stunning, especially at sunset. We were able to park up and not move the car for the best part of a week given that there are so many good walking trails directly... more

We have just returned from a one week stay at The Tree House holiday home in Portreath Cornwall. We are a family of 4 with two teenagers. We had a really lovely stay and felt like home-from-home.
Upon arrival to the property we welcomed with a beautiful bunch of wild flowers along with a welcome card which was a really lovely touch and made us all smile.
The accommodation is modern, clean and very spacious for a two bedroomed apartment. We found everything we needed from pots and pans to the lovely candles that made it extra special in the evenings. You really do need to just bring your food shopping as this home has it all ready and waiting.
We have stayed in Cornwall many times before and had not been to Portreath. It's a lovely place although we ended up spending most of our time driving out to St Agnes or Perrenporth for the days as there was more to do. We did spend a couple of days on the beach although we were disappointed to discover there was a Life-Guard event which started the day we arrived 25th Aug and was still going on when we left 1st Sept. It wasn't a problem but it meant the beach/water was packed and we couldn't get parking spaces (car was loaded with surf-board) so we ended up travelling further afield. This was nice though as it meant we got to discover other areas.
We found lovely places to eat - the chinese in Portreath was really tasty so we would certainly recommend this. We also found a Fish n Chip Shop called Cousin Jacks which is by far the best we have EVER tasted. Would certainly suggest trying this out!
We enjoyed BBQ's on the decking which was also a lovely way to relax in the evenings. The large Tesco at Red Ruth (5mins drive) meant we had everything we needed.
The only things we would say is that the steps to the property really are high/steep and you need to be fit to get to the properly. I know it's mentioned in the Tree House brief but it's worth remembering when packing your cases as we did struggle getting our weeks worth of clothes up and down the stairs! Although on a positive note - it'll keep you fit! We also found the back door a real struggle to open - i'm sure this can be easily fixed but it meant we tended not to use it as it was a struggle to open and close and needed someone strong. The other thing we had a slight issue with was a parking space. There really isn't much room and on three nights we had to leave our car down in the village and walk which wasn't always ideal with food shopping/surf-boards! The neighbours also came out twice and asked us to move our car which was tough as we'd parked it not blocking any drive-ways. I think if you are coming with a car and it's a busy time of year be prepared that you won't always have a space to park. However you can park in the village and walk up. It's not a major issue but worth noting.
We would most definitely recommend this holiday let to anyone. It really was beautiful and Angela was so helpful with the whole booking process including the return of our deposit. We will be returning!

We have just got back from a week at The Tree house which we found to be quite special. We often stay in holiday cottages when we visit family in Cornwall and this one was beyond our expectations. The living room is just lovely with views over the village and sea and you can watch the sunset from the sofas which my wife really enjoyed with her evening glass of wine. Having just read the previous review, we couldn't disagree more. The welcome pack was useful with some nice ideas for activities for the kids and advice on where to walk and eat. We had some wet weather for a couple of days so we put the fire on which was fun, it wasn't that cold though really so we all sat there roasting. We found the house to be spotlessly clean and very comfortable indeed and have already booked to stay there again next year.
