Portreath - The Perfect Setting for your Holidays in Cornwall


The area of Portreath offers a perfect setting for your holidays in Cornwall. The farm is ideally situated to take advantage of both the spectacular North Coast and the surrounding countryside, being within easy reach of the great beaches of Portreath and Porthtowan, which like many inlets on this northern coast are very popular with surfers.



We are ideally placed for those wishing to explore on foot, with the recent upgrading of The Mineral Tramways Coast to Coast Path, which retraces the routes used in transporting tin from the mines around Chacewater to the busy port of Portreath. The beach at Portreath is on the popular South West Coastal Path, which boasts a rugged coastline like no other, together with spectacular, breathtaking scenery. Jackdaws, birds of prey and seagulls nest in the rough cliff faces near the beach, and cormorants, grey seals, dolphins and even whales may also be seen.


A few minutes drive away is Tehidy Country Park, a tranquil 250 acre site of woodland, lakes, footpaths and cycle trails as well as the impressive Tehidy Park Golf Course.


Locally, Portreath offers a selection of shops, restaurants and pubs. Local attractions include go-karting, bowling and an indoor swimming pool.
