The house was very pretty and really well equipped. It also had a great location, a couple of minutes from the beach.

Excellent location, excellent property.

Excellent property, everything we needed for family of four, clean with all the required facilities. Very friendly hosts who met us on arrival. Best of all the location, 2 minutes from the beach and Portreath is the perfect family beach village.

Gull Cottage, Portreath

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is everything that we expected and it's location is spot on. The owners, Peter and Katie are approachable, friendly and very helpful. The cottage was spacious enough for us to entertain family and friends and very comfortable. Portreath is a lovely village with a great beach and great surf and we especially liked the Atlantic Cafe. The food at the Bassett Arms which is a minutes walk from the cottage was excellent at an excellent price too.
