Property Location

Portreath, situated on the North Cornwall coast, about 5 miles north of Redruth, was originally a small fishing village and an important part of the Cornish mining industry. Today it's a beautiful retreat with a narrow harbour, secluded sandy beaches and a stream running to the sea on one side. It is ideal for swimming and surfing, watched by the local Surf and Life Saving Club. Portreath offers the pleasures of sea and countryside with beautiful views, spectacular cliffs and walking trails. Illogan Woods are adjacent to Portreath with lovely streams and a circular walk leading to the 14th century church tower of Illogan. There is also Tehidy Country Park just outside of Portreath with its adjoining golf-course. It is a beautiful country park comprised of 250 acres of woodland, lakes, bridleways, cycling and nature trails. There is a picturesque lake with swans and various kinds of waterfowl. Occupying a dramatic valley location with one of the most spectacular and beautiful beaches of the Atlantic Coast, Portreath has been drawing visitors for years to take advantage of its natural sun trap. A superb location for a holiday to Cornwall with a fine beach and close to good main roads means that you can easily explore the surrounding area on days that are not conducive to sitting on the beach.

Porthtowan has one of Cornwall's finest surfing waves. Producing good waves at all states of the tide. It is not for the faint hearted and beginners should be careful. An excellent surf school operates from the beach. At low tide the beach stretches down to St Agnes Head and Chapel Porth Beach where you will find a lovely National Trust Cafe full of warming hot chocolate and fabulous views.

Gwithian and Hayle, dominated by the spectacular 3 miles of golden sands that stretch south from Gwithian Towans and Godrevy Lighthouse. A quite stunning beach that offers opportunities for sunbathing and surfing. When the wind is blowing, watch out for the windsurfers, particularly in the waves at the northern end of the beach. This is one of the best windsurfing spots in the country. In the town of Hayle, Paradise Park is always popular with both adults and kids with their fantastic collection of rare birds and animals. There is also a good indoor play area for the kids if the weather gets bad!

St Ives, once a busy fishing village, now relies on tourism as its main industry. Turner came and painted a landscape in 1811 and art has played a part in St Ives history ever since. More recently Barbara Hepworth and Bernard Leach. The Penwith Gallery and the Tate St Ives have put St Ives on the modern map. The Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden is an amazing place to visit, and well worth it even if you're not a budding artist. Trewyn Studios where she lived and worked from 1939 until her tragic death in 1975 has been turned into a fantastic museum, depicting many of her favourite sculptures in the sub tropical garden, is now managed by the Tate. The Tate Gallery St Ives was built in 1993 on the former gas works site displaying various paintings, sculptures and ceramics.

From Penzance you can take the Scillonian for a day trip to the picturesque Isles of Scilly, well worth a visit if you have never been. 10 minutes down the road lies Marazion famous for St Michaels Mount, home to a medieval castle and a working local community. St Michaels Mount is accessible by a causeway at low tides, or by boat. The castle is leased from the National Trust by the St Aubyn family who reside at the property maintaining and working the grounds.

Beautiful Cottage in a stunning location
Reviewed on 05/11/2020

Sunray Cottage is gorgeous! We felt right at home as soon as we arrived and loved the welcome gift from the kind and helpful owners, thank you :-) Everything is so well thought out and you have everything you could need (a small thing but having a laundry basket to use made a difference to the feel of the bedroom). The utility area was quite cold and we found the floor was almost always damp but you only really use it on your way in or out so not much of an issue. Portreath is a lovely village and a great base to explore Cornwall. Its a 10 minute walk from the cottage to the beach. Everyone we encountered were really friendly. There are a few places to eat out, although we only went to The Waterfront Inn (food was tasty and it was quiet so we went twice). The cafe by the local shop makes a really nice lunch too. We'd definitely come back to Sunray Cottage and have already recommended it to family.

Sunray Cottage, Portreath
Reviewed on 23/07/2020

Fantastic cosy and very clean Cottage. Lovely welcome pack and excellent facilities. Portreath itself is delightful, large well kept beach and some super little eateries close to the cottage. Well positioned with easy access to main roads that take you to all the main tourist hotspots but tucked away from the hustle and bustle of these. Some excellent walking and cycle trails right from the doorstep. My only feedback to improve would be to include a dishwasher as the cottage is self catering and sleeps 4. Would rather be out enjoying this lovely area of Cornwall than washing up!!
