Perched high above the beautiful sandy beach at Portreath, with spectacular beach and coastal views, sits The Sand House, a modern, reverse-level, detached house. Ranked number 2 for the ’top coastal properties to stay in’ by the Saturday Times newspaper in 2015, it has raised terraces taking advantage of the magnificent views, and provides exceptional outdoor living, sunbathing, lounging and entertaining areas.Portreath sits in a valley with an inviting sheltered sandy beach ideal for bathing, surfing and relaxing, with glorious cliffs and natural beauty providing the perfect holiday destination. There are cafés, pubs, restaurants, a bakery and small shops in the village, all within walking distance. The pretty harbour offers a swimming area for children in the inner harbour beach. The area has numerous cycle tracks, coastal paths for walkers and is just a few minutes from Tehiddy Country Park with woodlands providing over 200 acres of paths, bridle ways, cycle and nature trails to explore together with its prestigious golf course, providing something for all the family.This location is perfect for exploring the North Cornwall Coast, the sand dunes and the Hayle Estuary - a bird watcher’s paradise. The picturesque harbour and glorious beaches of St Ives with its cobbled streets, art galleries including the Tate Modern, shops and restaurants are just a short drive. Take the delightful, scenic train along the coastline from St Erth to St Ives, or cycle a trail running along an old tram line from Portreath to Devoran on the south coast. A short drive will take you to the south coast with its sandy coves and tranquil creeks. Shop and pub ¼ mile.

Great place for adult family groups to holiday. Stunning views, privacy but easy access
Provided a perfect location and house for 3 generations to gather and enjoy time together. Excellent pre holiday information regarding location but I would have been disappointed if children were younger due to the insufficient information given about the outdoor areas. I do not feel the dangers of the open balconies and steep drops were highlighted enough in the pre booking information and would suggest it should not be recommended for children under school age at all. Really well equipped although some furnishings 'weathered' and worn. A great place to just sit and stare.
