For the Pros…

If you know your aerials from your barrels and your rash guard from your neoprene, you’ll know what you’re doing when it comes to catching a gnarly wave or two. Stay with us and enjoy some serious surfing time at Fistral Beach just a 25-minute drive away. Porthmeor Beach in nearby St Ives is another surfing hot spot and Sennen Beach in Penzance is also popular.

For those of you who are keen to try surfing or who haven’t done it for a while, why not book in a few surf lessons with our local surf school? At Portreath Surf School, they will rent surfboards, as well as wet suits and you can even try a SUP or sea kayak if you want to do more than just surfing in Cornwall.

You don’t have to explore the coast on two feet – why not hop onto a bicycle and cover a lot more distance quickly and easily. There’s lots of flat ground and pathways that are perfect for cycling, with the nearby Tehidy Woods and Portreath offering the perfect cycling scenery on your doorstep.

Scandinavian Lodges

We have lots of dog-friendly versions of these lodges, all of which come with their own parking space. With traditional wooden exteriors and cosy interiors, these lodges are more than large enough to house your own surf boards and store your bikes should you choose to bring them with you. You can hang your wet suits up on the decking to dry in the sun and breeze, plus you can enjoy meals either outside on your sun deck or inside on the family-sized kitchen table.
