A Stones throw from the Sea

If you dream of being thirty seconds from the sea, this is the place for you.
Can you imagine a more perfect property for a beachside holiday?

Exceedingly private, you access the beach via a private slipway exclusively for residents of Smuggler’s Cove.  With private parking directly outside, this is a uniquely premium property, in a glorious beach side location. Sleeping four, the cottage has two bedrooms.

As you would expect, one bedroom has an ensuite and a balcony overlooking the beach/sea, with a luxurious picture-postcard view for wave watching.  You are close enough to the ocean here to be lulled to sleep by the sound of the waves.  The other bedroom, ideal for children, has two single beds which can be joined to make a king-sized sleeping space.

Oceans Edge, Portreath
The lounge, kitchen and dining room all enjoy spectacular sea views along with the garden/games room downstairs which has an adjoining utility room with W.C. and laundry facilities. Just off the kitchen is a study area with sleeping arrangements for two dogs. Downstairs is a garden/games room with utility room, plus a kitchen with adjacent storage area for pet sleeping or seaside equipment. Outside is decking and a seating area overlooking the beach, so it is easy to choose which time is best to go for that romantic seaside walk.  Recliners, shielded from the sea breeze by a glass balustrade which still allows for fabulous views, makes it easy to relax away from any crowds, choosing the best beach times for yourself. Then there’s the sunsets …

Sorry, this calendar requires javascript in order to work.

We’d love to share with you some of our favourite things to do locally, in the village and beyond… Some things that you won’t find in any tourist brochures!! 

 
A stroll up the Coast Path from Smugglers Cove in Portreath is a must, and is well worth the initial steep climb. You will discover the most mesmerising spots to watch the sunset; take a bottle of wine and a picnic if you can; you’ll be overwhelmed! 
 
The coastal heathland blazes with gorse and heather and the grass fringing the path is sprinkled with wildflowers. If you’re lucky you’ll pass the wild ponies along the way too!
 
If you’re feeling energetic enough, follow the breathtaking coastline of high cliffs and secret coves, and you will come across Tehidy Woods, which you can also access from Cot Road, which leads directly into Portreath from Illogan. Tehidy has 9 miles of meandering paths, and 250 acres of peaceful lakes and woods to explore
The woods are an enchanting place to visit all year round, particularly in April and May when the Cornish bluebells appear, making an even more stunning woodland walk, topped off with a traditional Cream Tea at their Country Park Cafe to rest those achey legs.
 
On the opposite side of Portreath, by the harbour you’ll find an equally beautiful coast path (Slightly easier on the legs!) which leads to Porthtowan, a small village famous for it’s surfing, fishing, and most importantly, its sunsets!
 
The walk is around 2 miles, and full of surprises. You’ll come across old mines, miles of ancient Cornish stone walls, historical landmarks and acres of Coastal flora. The Blue Bar on the beach is very relaxed, and we feel the best place to sit outside with a pint of Tribute Ale, soaking up the views and inhaling the refreshing sea air. Treat yourself to a delicious roast dinner at The Unicorn Pub, where all produce is fresh and local, and you can bring the dog too!
 
Just outside of Portreath, you will find a Bike Hire place called Elm Farm. The main Coast to Coast cycle trail runs for 11 miles from Portreath to Devoran, through Scorrier Woods, the Poldice Valley and alongside the stunning Restronguet Creek, and is almost entirely on purpose built cycle paths or quiet country lanes. At a leisurely pace it takes most people less than 2 hours, each way, to cycle the Coast to Coast Trail. If you are like us and fitness isn’t your forte, pop into The Fox and Hounds Pub mid route for a break and a well deserved drink! 
 
Kayaking from Portreath beach is a must, if the seas are calm enough of course. You’ll find the most beautiful secluded sandy beach to the left which is almost always empty as it not accessible by foot. You are more than likely going to see seals along the way, and they often pop up next to the kayak to see what’s going on! Dolphins are often spotted in the bay, and if you take your snorkel, you could find spider crabs, lobsters, and even jelly fish!
 
Stretch your legs with a walk up to Gwel An Mor to visit their Feadon Wildlife Centre. Here you will see, and can meet the animals; Reindeer, Ostriches, Birds of Prey, Goats, Foxes and more. If you have children (big or small!) make the most of their Falconry Sessions and Wildlife Experiences.

 

The 9 hole golf course here is Award Winning, and makes for an adventure packed day, followed up by a round of archery, and a fishing session for Carp and Tench in Clover Lake. 
 
If after all this you still have some energy (or time!), book the little ones into a session at Penny Red’s for pony rides they will never forget… All washed down by Fish and Chips and a glass of Camel Valley, at The Atlantic Cafe on the seafront. Enjoy!
