Beautifully interior designed, the accommodation at Rockville is arranged over the upper three floors with seaward facing balconies on each. The fabulous living space spans the whole of the first floor with an ultra-modern kitchen and dining space and stylish sitting area with bi-fold doors to the terrace. A warming wood-burner sits between the two.The second and third floors play host to four bedrooms and four bath and shower rooms. With two seaward facing master rooms, each with balcony and en-suite shower room, there will be no arguing over the best room! The remaining two bedrooms can be presented as twins or doubles depending on party make up. With a secure gated entrance and parking for two cars in an integral garage on the ground floor, unloading couldn’t be easier.
Take it slowly and enjoy the view with morning coffee on one of the two balconies off the bedrooms. After a day at the beach, head back for drinks on the wide balcony terrace off the living space or fire up the barbecue on the small patio at the back of the house.
Not surprisingly it is all about the beach here. A wide stretch of white sand, Portreath is a popular spot with swimmers, sunbathers and surfers. This is also a great spot for body boarders who turn up in force at high tide to surf the harbour wall, or Vortex as it is known. The beach is lifeguarded in the summer months and there is a surf school based in Portreath but it’s probably a good idea to book ahead if you are looking for lessons. Surfboards, wetsuits, body boards and kayaks can also be hired or bring your own and keep them safe in the garage.Portreath is home to a few shops including a convenience store, bakery and café but St Agnes, Truro and St Ives offer more in terms of restaurants and shops. One of our favourite days out is the tramway cycle which runs from Portreath to Devoran. Largely off road and level, this is one that the whole family can join in plus there is a great pub at the halfway point in Devoran. We can point you in the direction of bike hire too. Tehidy Woods and Country Park are also very close by where walkers will enjoy the nature trails around the 250 acres of woodland plus there is a café and picnic area.
