  • Location

    The hotel located in the centre of the village just a short walk away from Portreath’s harbour and beach. Situated on Cornwall’s North Coast, Portreath lies at the eastern edge of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and within the UNESCO Cornish Mining World Heritage Site. Portreath meaning ‘sandy cove’ has a gently sloping sandy beach which has a full life guard service during the summer months.

    The village is popular both with tourists and walkers on a journey along South West Coastal Path. There is also a popular cycle route from Portreath to Devoran on the south coast.

    Portreath & Cornish Mining

    In its heyday, Portreath was perhaps the busiest and most important mining port in Cornwall. It served the copper mines of Redruth & Camborne, exporting ore to South Wales and importing Coal and Timber for the mines. For this reason, Portreath sits within the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site.

    When the export of copper ore died down, coal imports remained the life blood of Portreath and the harbour operated until around 1960. Today Portreath is regionally known for its walking & cycling routes along the old mineral tramroads and the South West Coast path. It’s also a popular spot for swimming, surfing and body boarding.

    Totally superb!

    Wow! What a fabulous place! Stayed for one night whilst walking the coastal path. Given a lovely welcome on arrival, and shown to our beautiful room with bath and Bluetooth mirror – perfect after walking the hills! Covid wise they’ve got it cracked – we felt safe and cared for. Our evening meal and breakfast was delicious with friendly service. We will be looking to return. Thank you team :)

    Fantastic

    This is the second time that my partner and I have stayed at the Portreath Arms, and yet again they did not disappoint. We stayed for two nights and had booked the King En suite room with was decorated to a high standard, with all the little things you would expect from a quality guest accommodation. Breakfast time was held in the dining room with a good selection of quality breakfast’s. As there are very few restaurants within Portreath we opted to Try the evening menu (ADVANCED BOOKING ADVISED).
    Yet again the food was cooked to perfection.We found all of the staff Very helpful and friendly and nothing seemed to much trouble.. Would we go back again? Most definitely.
