Slipway Cottage

Only a couple of minutes level walk from the sandy beach of Portreath is this charming terraced house right next to the harbour with main rooms looking onto the bobbing fishing boats.

The 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 5' bed in the main bedroom and double in the second bedroom and a third small bedroom, large enough to also place a cot for baby.

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 at high tide is exilerating and 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. Hells Mouth and the seals, Gwithian and fun bars and surfing, plus the National Trust's café and lighthouse at Godrevy are only 10 minutes by car.

The house 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.

Guests will never be bored!!
