Nice 3-bedroom house within 3 minutes walking distance from Portreath beach. Front windows overlooks the harbour and the stairs landing window overlooks Portreath bay and the sea.
Was easy to park along the same road as the house and there was more parking out on the main road.
Fully equipped kitchen with electric hob and oven and an 800-watt microwave. Blender and toaster, salt and pepper, tea bags, coffee and sugar are provided. There was also a pint of milk in the fridge for a much need cup of tea upon arrival. Cups/cutlery and glasses are plentiful. A Washer Machine with Drier was also a welcome addition. A dishwasher is also available but we never used it.
Broadband is provided via a BT hub fibre connection. Speed at time of stay is 50 down and 9 up which should suffice most usage. O2 mobile signal is almost non-existent inside the house but we used the TuGo app from o2 which was brilliant, if your network provides it Wi-Fi calling, Whatsapp or iMessage should also work.
Flat panel tv with HDMI blue ray in the living room was most welcome when it was raining outside.
3 bedrooms, with a very comfortable double bed in the main bedroom.
Local Food & Takeaway
Local area has corner shop, bakery and a couple of restaurants. Justeat.co.uk gives you more options that delivery, very nice curry from Manha Spice House in Redruth.
Local shopping can be had from Aldi which is about a 10 minute drive back towards the A30 or there is a Tesco in Redruth which is about 15 minute drive.
Bath with very powerful shower which was nice.
Contact with Owner
Communication with Gail the owner, was excellent, via email, HomeAway messaging and text message. Information regarding the cottage was provided in advance, with more information at the cottage along with brochures for local attractions and events.
Would highly recommend this cottage, it is in a fabulous location and is very clean and tidy.
We had a fabulous time. We would love to stay there again. A well appointed cottage in a great location. Gail was very welcoming and could not have been more helpful
Lovely harbourside cottage, nicely decorated, v clean with all the equipment/appliances etc we needed for our weeks stay. The owners of the cottage were v helpful throughout the booking process and during our stay. Portreath is ideally located for exploring Cornwall and Portreath has a great beach and harbour and there are enough eateries/pubs/takeaways/shop to meet your needs and the local people were very friendly and welcoming to us. For anyone thinking of staying/holidaying in Portreath we would definitely recommend Camellia cottage.
