A wonderful family holiday setting directly on the harbourside and within a short walk to the beach, the beautiful woods or the spectacular cliffs. You can bike along the tramway, hire a kayak to explore the hidden coves, take a fishing net to the rockpools, have a surf lesson or simply relax on the beach. With direct views of the water, even a stormy day can be mesmerising! There are many places to visit nearby; St.Ives, The Lost Gardens of Heligan, Falmouth, The Eden Project, Minack Theatre.
A wonderful family holiday setting directly facing onto Portreath Harbour and within a short walk to the beach, the beautiful woods and the spectacular cliffs. The house has 3 bedrooms and is a light, bright and airy property with an open and friendly feel.
We find it is more convienient to enter the property by the back gate as this is adjacent to the car parking space and faces in the direction of the beach. Here you will find a sheltered courtyard garden, with a picnic table and a lovely two storey Wendy House with a bunk bed for the children to play in. My daughter has even fallen asleep in here after a long day at the beach!
From here you can enter the house through the conservatory. This is a great space for removing sandy or muddy shoes and drying yourself off after a day in the sea. It has a comfortable seating area perfect for lazing with a book or to simply doze in.
The conservatory leads into the light and bright Kitchen/Diner which comfortably seats 5 people. It is fully equipped including a washing machine, dishwasher, fridge/freezer and microwave. It also has a desk/seating area and a play kitchen for the children to use.
Next door to the kitchen is the living room which looks out directly onto the harbour where you can watch the fishing boats, kayaks and the lapping tide. You may even be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the friendly seal who likes to make an appearance every now and then!
It is furnished with a 4 seater corner sofa, 2 armchairs, a beanbag and 2 wicker chairs for children. There is a TV, DVD player, Stereo with ipod dock, a selection of DVDs, books, board games, a dolls house and childrens puzzles.
There is a porch off the living room where you will find coat hooks, storage chest, storage cupboard (where the iron/ironing board is stored) and a desk. The front door opens onto a patio with a table and chairs, overlooking the harbour, ideal for catching the morning sun with your first cuppa of the day.
Upstairs is the family bathroom with a bath and shower nozzle attached to the taps for rinsing with. The toilet is separated adjacent to the bathroom.
The main bedroom has a comfortable double bed, built in wardrobe and drawers. As it is at the front of the house it has a spectacular view of the harbour and off to the sea in the distance.
The twin bedroom is furnished with two single beds, a built in wardrobe and drawers. It has a pretty view of the hillside at the back and if you look out to the right you can catch a glimpse of the sea and Gull Rock.
