“Beautiful peaceful clean cottage in Portreath.”

This cottage is a little gem of a find. It's spotlessly clean, peaceful, and has everything you could possibly need from a home away from home. The ladies who own and run it could not be nicer or more helpful. They both genuinely want you to enjoy this beautiful home and have thought of everything to do this. From tea and coffee and fresh milk in the fridge to welcome you to fresh flowers in the lounge and master bedroom. I would highly recommend "Seashells"cottage and cannot fault it. It's located 2 minutes from two beautiful beaches and if you didn't want to drive anywhere has a local convenience store and great local pub/restaurant nearby for the evenings you don't want to cook. Lovely Laura and Jade the owners have even provided a DVD library and book collection to keep you in the holiday mood. And if you have little people with you there's even colouring books and pencils for them to use. We felt so welcome we didn't want to leave. I definitely would recommend this beautiful home to my family and friends and will be booking it again.

Liked best: It's clean and cosy and had everything you need.
Liked least: Parking wasnt always easy as local residents have more than one car each. Having said that the cottage does have a garage you could use if your car is smaller than mine is.

“A beautiful home from home”
Reviewed 14 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Had such a wonderful stay at Seashells. The house is beautifully decorated and is a real home from home. Everything you could possibly need is there which is unusual in holiday homes. There's also a gorgeous little garden to sit in and the bonus of a garage that you can use for a car or storage. The house is right on the harbour and a short walk from the beach and shops. If you prefer the less commercialised Cornish experience then this is the place to stay. But saying that, It's also very centralised and if you don't get great weather like we didn't, it's easy to visit the rest of Cornwall, such as St Ives, Minack Theatre, Lost Gardens of Heligan and Newquay. We would definitely recommend Seashells.

Portreath is a wonderful Cornish village, and 'Seashells' is situated right in the heart of it. The cottage is thoughtfully decorated and has everything one needs for a comfortable stay. The little walled garden at the back is ideal for dining or sitting out, and the array of plants is a credit to Laura; who is obviously 'green-fingered'.
The Bakery, selling amazing pasties, and a Costcutter are in one direction from the cottage, and the beach with the Waterside Inn, serving delicious food, is in the other; both a short walk away.

Liked best: The easy access to the beach and shops. No need to drive anywhere if we didn't want to.
Liked least: Nothing to do with 'Seashells', but the harbour does smell a bit of rotting seaweed when the tide is out.

“A perfect holiday location”
Reviewed 8 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We were met by the owner Laura, who were extremely welcoming and the welcome pack really well received after a long drive.
It is extremely well presented with everything we needed for a family of 4. Right on the harbour, 100 yards from the beach and its glorious waves. The garage proved invaluable for storage and the patio is a sun-trap!
No problem parking, and the local bakery and Costcutter within 100 yards proved useful.
I highly recommend Seashells, there is a saying on the wall inside, saying 'Sandy toes and Salty kisses' which sums up a wonderful 3 week stay. Thank you
