Portreath is a traditional Cornish fishing town that has retained much of its original charm. The once-busy trading port now shelters local fishing boats, and with secluded beaches, coastal walks and spectacular cliff views, Portreath offers all the appeal of a Cornish seaside resort without the crowds. Located on the rugged north Cornwall coast, Portreath is famous for its large family-friendly sandy beach. The beach is also great for surfing and body boarding, and at low tide, there are rock pools to explore and a large natural swimming pool set amongst the rocks. Cornwall is renowned for its fresh seafood and Portreath will not disappoint with its selection of cafes and restaurants. Try the beachside Atlantic cafe bar for fish and chips or the Basset Arms, a traditional stone inn famous for its home-cooked seafood stew. The ominous-sounding Hell's Mouth Cafe offers homemade cakes in a stunning cliff-top location not far from the village. However you wish to discover this area do it from the comfort of one of our Portreath cottages.
