Did you know? A local’s guide to Portreath…

Portreath lies within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Favoured for its warm village atmosphere and beautiful beach, it’s a holidaymaker’s dream destination. Sunny days are spent swimming, sunbathing or surfing while the National Trust coastal footpath with its incredible scenery, wooded parkland and abundant flora and fauna is good for an outing in just about any weather.

Local Attractions

Tehidy Country Park and Woods
Approximately 3.5 miles (or 10 minutes drive)from Portreath lies Tehidy Country Park, a beautiful woodland with around 9 miles of nature trails, spanning 250 acres. Previously the estate of the wealthy tin mining Bassett family it is now owned by Cornwall County Council and is open to the public all year round. An enchanting place for both young and old, the park welcomes dogs so if you’re looking for a pet-friendly attraction in Portreath, this is one of the best.

Within the park are also bridleways for horse riding and tracks for mountain bikes as well as several ponds and a lovely lake with swans and ducks. The park has a Visitors Centre and café serving light snacks and refreshments with free car parking which is located at North Cliffs, East Drive and South Drive.

Cornwall Gold
A fascinating all weather family attraction, Cornwall Gold and Tolgus Mill is situated within 18 acres of beautiful grounds, just 2.5 miles from Portreath. Showcasing the UK’s biggest jewellery showroom along with a fabulous restaurant The Cornish Pantry, the experience is one of marvellous exhibits, family-friendly attractions and various hands-on activities for all age groups. Visitors can pan for gold, dig for hidden pirate treasure, witness the Delorean time machine and an Aston Martin DB5.

Gwelan Mor
This five star resort and spa is just the place if you’re in need of an indulgent treatment or an alternative to your beachy days out. Adding to the site’s repertoire of fresh air entertainment, the Famous Nine Golf is just the place to brush up on your skills and with its uniquely designed course being modelled on some of the world’s most famous holes (we love the 8th which is inspired by St Andrew’s 18th hole), you’ll feel like a bit of a pro returning from a whirlwind worldwide circuit.

There’s also two-acre course Clover fishing lake which has 12 swims including one that’s wheelchair accessible so you’ll get to enjoy a wild swim overlooking beautiful scenery. Ideal for the avid angler, the lake is stocked with a mixture of tench and carp of varying sizes to cater to visitors of all abilities and experience. Fishing gear hire is available on site.

Portreath Beach

One of the best beaches in Cornwall, Portreath has a large, sandy stretch with shingle below the shoreline and is perfect for families with children of all ages. Relax in the sunshine or try your hand at a new watersport, Portreath Surfing School and Hire Centre has experienced instructors and sessions tailored to suit everyone from complete beginners to advanced riders.

All that exercise is probably going to leave you feeling quite peckish after, so for a truly local experience you won’t want to miss the vibe (or food) at The Hub, Portreath’s best beachside restaurant. Whether it’s a fish finger butty or a Hub hot bowl, you’ll be heartily fed, and you’ll get to hang out like a local with some great beach views to enjoy!

Portreath welcomes dogs for most of the year however the council does impose a seasonal dog ban from 1st July to 31st August between 10am and 6pm.

 

  • Does Portreath have a harbour?
    Yes, and it’s quite extraordinary! A legacy of Cornwall’s copper mining era, Portreath was one of Cornwall’s earliest industrial ports and well used by the “Welsh Fleet” which was predominantly Cornish owned and manned. Today, the harbour is a fascinating reminder of a bygone era and quite spectacular on a stormy day when its narrow entrance, pier and wall are battered by the sea.
  • Are there any other good beaches in the area?
    The beauty of holidays in Portreath is that no two days need be the same. With beaches like Gwithian and Porthtowan being under 15 minutes drive away and Hayle being only slightly further, you'll be able to make the most of all of the beautiful landscape in the area.
  • Are there any good places to eat?
    The family run restaurant and bar at Portreath Arms is a little piece of magic and we simply love, among other things, the stunning understated styling of the place. Of course there’s also the food, which might we add is superb. An all-rounder with dishes like tacos, empanadas with aji verde, pork ramen and chicken ballontine – you really can’t go wrong. And they also have a kids menu which we think is the icing on the cake.
