The Alley Cottage- Portreath - Cornwall Part Of North Coast Holiday Cottages, Equal Distance From The North Coast Beache
About Natalie Martin
We are a family run business which thrives on ensuring all our guests who stay with us have a memorable holiday. If possible (in season) we will endeavour to try and have some sort of activity on for the children (and adults) to enjoy. We have small children ourselves and know how important it is to gain ever lasting memories. Even without children we are able to provide and organise a holiday for you to relax or enjoy an adrenalin rush. With local businesses offering their support and services we are able to recommend places and activities to try to explore more of the cornish coast.
Why Natalie Martin chose Portreath
My family and I live on the complex itself. We love the area in which we live in. The area is surrounded by countryside and beautiful views of Carn Brea castle and monument and the iconic Cornish Engine Houses. The complex is within easy reach of the main A30, taking approximately 5 minutes by car. We are also situated between 2 of Cornwalls finest Blue Flag beaches of Portreath and Porthtowan.
What makes this Cottage unique
View of the country close proximity to mineral tram way (for walkers and cyclists) which leads to Portreath Beach. This property has a jacuzzi and we can offer if required for events the exclusive use of all the cottages which we can cater up to 60 people. We can organise adrenalin rushes, relaxation/pampering sessions, days out for families, couples and groups of friends. The main benefits about us is we are a family run business and have a passion about families, memories and enjoying what you want out of a holiday, so anything we can do to help we would be happy to assist and sort if we can.

Good private location with fab panoramic views, especially when sat in the hot tub. Felt a little cramped in dining area due to a fridge being stuck next to the breakfast bar...surely could have put this in v.large cupboard where boiler was? Disappointed with size of freezer, tiny one in fridge, may be a good idea to get rid of extra fridge & put a freezer in where boiler is? Expected a hand towel with each bath towel. Hedges around seating area could do with cutting right back as taking over. Although not obligatory, a welcome pack would have been a nice touch. Not meaning to sound negative, but have stayed at loads of places like this, overall lovely place, but for the price we paid, we expected a little more,
