The Chace is just a minutes stroll to the sandy beach at Portreath and its little picturesque harbour, which is perfect for a spot of early evening crabbing off the quay.

Portreath is a lovely seaside resort with big sandy beaches and coves, stunning coastline and a few village pubs, restaurants and cafes.

Portreath is popular for surfing and sandcastles in the summer months and is wonderfully located for walking and perhaps even storm watching in the winter months. 

The Chace is spacious and homely and welcomes you in to kick back and relax.

The location was excellent, closer than it seemed on the map! The highlight of our trip was the beach and sea pool in Portreath. We had a lovely time, thank you very much. Harris - April 2017

A fine time was had by all and we will be back. Our hightlight, besides Portreath itself which my grandsons love for the waves and body-boarding we all like Godrevy because it has beach for boys, lovely setting for me(Granny!) to sit and relax & read or enjoy the view and the seals and cliff walks there too. - McCartney, August 2016

Loved the property and Portreath, would definitely return. The 2 children enjoyed a day at DAIRYLAND - Wilson, August 2016



We have enjoyed our stay at The Chace a lot! Bloech Family - October 2015
