More about Portreath

Portreath is located between the towns of Redruth and Camborne, and is approximately 5 kilometres north of Redruth and lies within the Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Dolphins often come into the bay, as well as grey seals. You may even be lucky enough to see a peregrine falcon on the cliffs.

The Cornish village of Portreath extends along both sides of a stream valley which centres around Portreath harbour and beach. In the past Portreath prospered from its harbour, exporting cornish tin ore and importing coal for the mining industry. The fishing community was also very active and does continue into the present day by providing shelter for fishing boats. The original loading ramp can still be seen in the village. Some of the old tram-roads, used for transporting ore from the mines, have been made into cycle paths and you can cycle from Portreath on the North coast to Devoran on the South coast of Cornwall.

The holiday industry is now the main income in Portreath as it is a beautiful retreat that retains the narrow harbour. West of the harbour entrance and breakwater are two fine sandy beaches which are popular with surfers and holidaymakers alike, body boarders turn up in force at high tide on big swells to surf the harbour wall, or vortex, as it is known, watched over by the local Surf and Life Saving Club, which is situated right on the beach.
Accommodation with Sea Views in Cornwall is available at either of our properties. The views are truly magnificent - better than watching the telly.
The beach at Portreath is well looked after as is common on most Cornwall beaches, dogs are not permitted on the beach from Easter day to 1st October each year.
