The cottage is set back from a quiet country road down its own private lane. There are beaches at Portreath (2.2 miles) and the surfing village of Porthtowan (3.3 miles) both with cafes, pubs, small local shops and holiday accommodation. A public footpath running down the side of one of the paddocks can be used to walk to Portreath via the nearby Coast to Coast (Portreath to Devoran) cycle trail. Portreath village was once Cornwall’s busiest mining harbour, is part of the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site and within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
