The Area

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!

LOCATION OF

The Cowshed

  • We have had the best half term break. The weather was not ideal, but the comfy sitting room, lovely log burner and hot tub more than made this a perfect place to be during a storm! We will definitely be visiting again and would highly recommend. Plenty of space for a family of 4, and some lovely walks and attractions nearby.

  • The Cow Shed has everything you could possibly want for a relaxing holiday. It’s location is ideal for lots of beaches and woodland walks. The property is dog friendly; they even get their own goodie bag! The humans are not left out ether. Thank you for the cream tea and all of the other goodies you left us. We were lucky to have great weather for October, we made full use of the hot tub and the log burner. Nights in were a real treat. We would definitely recommend staying at the Cow Shed.

  • We have just returned from a wonderful week at The Cowshed, the pictures online don’t do it enough justice, the place is stunning, the outlook is onto fields with a couple of very amusing horses. We were sad to leave and can’t wait to return. The owner has thought of every details and couldn’t be more helpful.

    Sarah C

  • Second time staying at one of Charlottes properties. Absolutely amazing and pure luxury. Charlotte, Steve and Lisa are super helpful. Now something we’ll be treating ourselves too each year!

    Becky W

  • We’ve just spent a wonderful week at the Cowshed – house, hot tub, horses and hosts are truly amazing, with beach and waves just a short 5 min drive. Highly recommended and would return

    Dominic N

  • Perfect tranquil location with Portreath beach 5 mins away, with great waves, rock pools, pubs, fish and chips etc. We visited Falmouth, St Ives, Hayle ,St Michaels mount all within 30 min drive. The Cowshed is finished to the highest possible standard,There’s nothing you can think of that isn’t already catered for. This ranks of one the best properties we’ve stayed in and the communication from the management team is excellent. Will definitely return. Thanks
