About Garden Spring at Bassets Acre

Garden Spring at Bassets Acre, Portreath is a historic villa immersed in history, and one of six coastal holiday apartments nestling amongst private gardens extending to an acre.

The accommodation is on the ground floor, making it a comfortable choice for anyone with mobility issues.

Equally as popular for families and couples, the apartment is a home away from home with all the comforts expected for a relaxing time away.The owners fully appreciate that when choosing holiday accommodation, guests want something that suits their lifestyle so have made sure the kitchen is well-equipped to take the stress out of cooking and there is ample hanging space so you are not living out of a suitcase. Having owned Garden Spring for many years (nearly 40!), the owners know just what their guests need to make the holiday fantastic and memorable.

Affording a superb coastal position, the apartment sits in a quiet little complex in Portreath and is less than a 5-minute stroll from Portreath beach and harbour and a good choice of the town's pubs including the Bassets Arms, The Waterfront Inn and the Portreath Arms Hotel.

Accommodation Comprises:

Garden Spring is a spacious three bedroom holiday apartment.

  • Welcoming living room with big corner sofa and armchair. Nicely presented in cool light blues and whites, a decorative fireplace makes a nice focal feature, as do views over the garden. Guests can also relax and sit in the conservatory.
  • Well-equipped for self-catering, the kitchen is flooded in light from the wall of windows and provides everything needed to cater with ease for 7 guests.
  • The elegant dining room is as perfect for special meals, as it is for an informal brunch and has a big table and seven chairs. A matching dressers is stocked full of crockery and glasses.

Location (Cornwall)

Information about the area:

There is a good variety of shops, cafes and amenities close by. The beach is popular with families for its soft sand (perfect for sandcastles!) and clean water. It has a relaxed, friendly atmosphere and does not attract the summer crowds of some Cornish beaches.

Portreath is an historic village with World Heritage Status on the west coast of Cornwall. The coast to coast cycle path start here (Portreath to Devoran) and Garden Springs is between the St Agnes Hertigate Coast and St Ives. The South West Coast Path links stunning views and beautiful areas, with the stretch from Portreath to Gordreavy being especially lovely as it passes through the Godreavy Heritage Coast and rewards the effort with views of seals, basking sharks, the Godreavy Lighthouse and over St Ives Bay. Head inland, and Redruth is just a few miles away. The historic mining town has always had close links to Portreath, as the tin from the former was shipped from the harbour of the latter. You can see the legacy of the successful industry in the Victorian beauty of the town’s architecture.

In addition to the world-famous beaches of Cornwall, nearby attractions include Heartlands (a free, fun family day out), the Tate Modern and other galleries in St Ives, the Tehidy Country Park (almost on the doorstep), Wheal Peevor and East Pool Mines, the Paradise Park Wildlife Sanctuary, and a range of charming towns and villages. Penzance, Truro and Falmouth are only around half an hour by car and the Eden Project and Lost Gardens of Heligan are just forty minutes, so you can see that Garden Spring at Basset Acre is in a fantastic location for enjoying everything Cornwall has to offer.
