Right on the edge of the harbour, only a couple of minutes level walk from the sandy beach of Portreath is this charming terraced house with all main rooms looking onto the bobbing fishing boats.

Quayside cottage has been recently updated and fitted with all modern facilities. Three bedrooms (two with direct water views) offer very comfortable accommodation currently laid out with...

Bedroom One - 5' bed in the main bedroom

Bedroom Two - twin beds or a supe rking size bed in the second bedroom with space for cot. (photo to be updated shortly)

Bedroom Three - a third small bedroom, large enough to also place a cot for baby.

Sun Room - Also serves for teenagers not wanting to share or those who prefer ground floor sleeping. A good quality daybed is available on request.

There is a shower room on the ground floor and a bath and shower room on the first floor - all with unlimited hot water!

The multi fuel burner in the living room is great for chilly evenings. Welcome goodies include a basket of wood and coal and wine!

Approaching easily from the main route through Cornwall towards St Ives, the entrance into Portreath is stunning as you look down onto the view across Gull Rock. Exploring the coves by kayak or coasteering is exhilarating and all ages love tombstoning off the harbour steps at high tide. The beach is guarded well by one of the largest Surf Living Saving Clubs in Cornwall, providing safe bathing for children with rock pools for studying, jumping and paddling.

Mountain biking the mining tracks to the southern side of Cornwall and stopping for a pub lunch in Devoran is a must. Walks through the valley to Tehidy Woods provides a superb adventure taking you to a circular walk to return by the South West Coastal Path.

For the more sporty golf is available at Tehidy Golf and Country Club and Gwel an Mor provides (for a small fee) an indoor pool, gym, steam room and sauna. Spot the raindeer on the walk through the woods!

Only 10 minutes by car or a good long walk or bike will take you to Hells Mouth and the possibility to see the seals in their secret cove; Gwithian with its famous Sandsifter fun pub and surfing, plus the National Trust's café and lighthouse at Godrevy.

Quayside Cottage has both a front terrace overlooking the harbour with sunshine for breakfast until lunch and a private courtyard and sunroom at the rear with sheltered sunshine from lunchtime late into the evening. A fire pit for BBQ's and chimenea available.

Local services include Costcutter, Portreath Bakery, two surf shops, three pubs and a restaurant. Buses run regularly to Redruth and Camborne where there are main supermarkets and other shops. Easily visit any attraction in Cornwall inlcuding Cornish Treasure Park, St Agnes, Truro Cathedral, St Ives, The Lizard, Lands End and much more...

"Very comfy, everything we needed"

We stayed for four nights at Slipway Cottage, Portreath. The cottage was very comfortable, had great views, and contained everything we needed to manage with a baby. The welcome goodies in the fridge and the bath toys were a nice surprise! Only a short walk to the beach, the cottage is also a good base for explorations further afield, and a nice place to hole-up in if the weather is not so good. The local pubs were fantastic, and the small supermarket and bakery in town were also handy. It was a shame we couldn't stay longer!
