Providing coastal views and located high above Portreath beach, The Sand House is perfect for those wanting to explore North Cornwall.

Sat high above Portreath Beach, The Sand House is a surfer’s paradise. Wake up in the morning, grab your surfboard and wetsuit stored in the quirky storage shack, and take a short stroll down to the beach to catch some waves. When the sea calms, come back to The Sand House and hose down in the outdoor shower. What more could you ask for?
When you’re not immersed in the ocean, this delightful detached home, ranked number 2 for the ‘top coastal properties to stay in’ by the Saturday Times in 2015, offers a whole host of amenities for you and all the family to enjoy. Thoughtfully furnished with contemporary-style décor, this unique upside-down house boasts an open-plan living space where you can relax in comfort, and be warmed by the underfloor heating found on the first floor while you watch your choice of entertainment on the TV. The spacious living area also holds large windows allowing for light to pour through, leaving for a bright and airy feel.
Rustle up something tasty in the well-equipped kitchen, and dine al fresco on one of the many raised terraces, which can be found on different levels of the property. If you’re not dining on the terraces, then you can sit back and relax on one of the comfy sun loungers and take in the stunning sea views away from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the world. Or you can make the most of the lawned area, complete with play equipment, sure to keep the children entertained.
Beautiful Portreath is the perfect holiday destination, offering glorious sea views and impressive cliffs. With many cycle tracks and coastal paths within easy reach, including an array of cycling trails at the nearby Tehiddy Country Park, the cycle store will certainly come in handy. If you prefer to spend the day bird watching, why not explore the Hayle Estuary?

    We had an amazing stay it truly was a family holiday we won’t forget. The cottage has so much to offer we felt so at home. One thing was the tv didn’t work. But with a view like that who needs sky. I would recommend to any one who gets a chance to book up. I sure know I’d go back. Thankyou for sharing your beautiful cottage with us.
