Great house and wonderful views
Amazing to walk on the cliffs each day.

Cliff top cottage is a stunning building
It is an extremely well fitted out with top of the range fittings and furnishing. The views are outstanding and the location idyllic. The design and layout is very flexible for parties up to eight people. We loved it!

A wonderful week was had by all
Even the weather couldn’t spoil it as the property was comfortable and well equipped to keep us content even on the wettest of days. A return visit is already being mentioned

An outstanding cottage in the most beautiful of locations
Smuggler’s Cove cottage must hold one of the most beautiful locations of any self-catering accommodation in the world. It is nestled into the cliffs on one side of Portreath Beach, and whether in the property or on the spacious veranda, it feels as if you are floating above waves, as they roll in and out beneath you.

Rating: 5

In the words of Mary Poppins; practically perfect in every way!
Thank you very much for your wonderful holiday home, we very much hope to return.

We had the most amazing time at Beachside
The location is stunning and the house itself perfect. Has everything you need and ‘the’ most comfortable beds. We never got tired of the view and sat outside on the terrace each morning and evening just watching the world go by. Mesmerising. David and colleagues were super informative and helpful and nothing was to much trouble. Easy from start to finish. We’d happily stay again.

Beautiful house with everything we could possibly need!
Amazing location, the kids have loved the easy access to the beach. A perfect holiday – we don’t want to leave!

We enjoyed a fantastic week in the Clifftop Cottage
The interior of the cottage is very clean, modern and well equipped. The kitchen includes everything you need and all sleeping rooms have really good beds and each a modern and not small bathroom. The terrace is a fantastic place to enjoy the sea and the perfect view. It offers a huge space and several seated areas. When walking on the beach of Portreath you will very soon recognise that the Clifftop Cottage is really the unique one in this area! We have been staying with 5 persons and are very much thankful for the wonderful time. Thank you !

This is our third holiday in either one of the houses…

Where to start! The most perfect house in every way
We were very Warmly greated by David who showed us round the most idyllic holiday home we’ve ever stayed in.


Just WoW!! I wanted somewhere with a sea views to celebrate my 60th birthday with my family
and boy this place exceeded our expectations! This house gave us everything we wanted and needed! The welcome pack of Fresh flowers, cream teas, beers&cider and cookies was such a lovely touch. Everything is thought about to make your stay home from home! The views, incredible! The house, impeccable! We didn’t want to leave, and will be coming back!! Thank you to David & Team, you really did give my family and i amazing memories x

Heaven on earth
We loved our stay and it was the highlight of our tour of Cornwall. The house is lovely, well appointed and well stocked. Very comfortable with all our needs anticipated.

This was our fourth visit to Clifftop, fabulous house & location
We park the car & just chill out. The team are always very welcoming & helpful, all you need for a brilliant beach stay, moments to the sea & warm outdoor shower to rinse the sand away before a drink on the extensive terrace which overlooks the bay. We have freshly caught lobster & crab delivered to the door, it’s a hard life. Already booked for next year!

Truly magical
You could be nothing but overwhelmed by this wonderful property from the minute of arrival.


Great house and wonderful views!
Amazing to walk on the cliffs each day.

Our second time and still an amazing place to visit
The views of the beach will keep you entertained for days, and the very well appointed and equipped property is a pleasure to stay in. Completely wheelchair friendly to boot. Thank you!

A beautiful holidayhome with all you need. Spacious rooms with incredible views.


Luxury cottage directly on the beach, with extensive private patio. Parking
I reviewed this property before I’d even visited – in early 2020 Covid meant that we had to postpone our booking, but I was so impressed with the owner David’s cooperative and helpful attitude that I felt compelled to leave a strongly positive review. Now I have actually visited the house the review is even better. We stayed in Cliff Top for a week just before Easter. The house is wonderful, comfortable, very well equipped, all mod cons. But the position is to die for – I could (and for the most part did) spend all my time just sitting on the (huge) terrace looking at the waves and beach just below. I’m not sure I have ever stayed anywhere that feels so close to the elements while being able to stay warm at the same time. Better still, Portreath is pretty quiet, or at least was when we were there, certainly compared to larger towns like St Ives just down the road. David the owner and housekeeper Sharon were incredibly helpful in dealing with the booking and throughout our stay, including when I left my wetsuit behind. I can’t recommend highly enough
