With an abundance of windows and prominent cliff side position, Galleon offers dramatic sea views over Portreath beach and the rugged north Cornwall coast beyond. This impressive topsy-turvy beach home is a haven of first class craftsmanship, combining mid-century furnishings with a clean, Scandi style. Let long lazy days drift by to the sound of the lapping waves at this luxury Portreath beach house.
From humble seaside chalet to mesmerising hand-crafted home, Galleon has been lovingly rebuilt by two generations of the same family to offer luxury self-catering accommodation on the north Cornwall coast. This luxury seaside homestay has been carved into the cliffside, maximising the views over Portreath beach. A visual pleasure of modern mid-century style, Galleon blends re-upholstered mid-century furniture with treasured family heirlooms and hand-painted seascapes. The perfect place to gather loved ones for a UK beach break in style.
Bedrooms and Bathrooms
Head down to the light-filled sleeping quarters, where the master bedroom complete with king-size sleigh bed - hand-crafted by the owner's father - allows the gentle sounds of the waves to entice a blissful slumber. The second double with king-size bed and en suite shower (big enough for two!) will be a haven for lovebirds, whilst the twin bedroom with en suite shower room enjoys access onto the balcony.
The open-plan living area stretches out onto the large patio meeting unrivalled sea vistas - the perfect spot for sunshine breakfasts and moonlit suppers. The master, along with the twin bedroom also have access to a small terrace designed for sunny mornings complete with fresh coffee and newspapers. After long days of sand-in-toes fun, families can head down the steps to Galleon's lower deck area where you can enjoy long summer evenings and fish barbeques under a crimson sunset sky.
Galleon offers a composed retreat of calm, and is an idyllic haven whether you've spent your day sandcastle building or taking to the waves. From days filled with exploring the rugged Cornish coastline and discovering quaint harbour villages, to evenings curled up watching movies; there's plenty to keep families and friends entertained at Galleon. There will be nothing more soul satisfying than watching the moonlight dance over the ocean on a stormy evening, children wrapped up in bed and glass of wine in hand.
The single track lane to the property is unmade and unsuitable for low-slung cars. There are two private parking spaces. The kitchen is well-equipped with gas oven and hob, microwave, dishwasher and large fridge/freezer. There is a separate utility room on the ground floor with washing machine and tumble dryer.

AROUND THE PROPERTY
Style: This striking beach house really makes the most of the far-reaching sea views. The large, light-filled living spaces have a seventies twist, with retro furnishings and medallion seagrass rugs.
Property Owner Nikki says
Throughout the property you will see my late fatherŽs love of wood, sea and sailing; most of the wooden items were made by him. The position of the house is perfect for storm watching, safe from the huge waves! Sunset and sunrise are my favourite parts of the day, best enjoyed with a cup of coffee.

FOOD AND DRINK
Chefs in the family will delight in the homely kitchen which provides a great space for serving the favourites. Or, why not test your culinary skills by attempting a local dish such as Stargazey pie? The open-plan living and dining room provides a social space where all the family can gather together. For home-cooked delights in the village, Porthreath bakery is superb for morning pastries and afternoon pasties.
If you'd rather spend your self-catering break indulging in the little luxuries, let an in-house chef prepare a mouth-watering meal for you and your party (on prior request and subject to an additional cost).
There is a great selection of local restaurants to choose from, starting with The Terrace, offering a varied menu of contemporary Cornish food with a Mediterranean twist. Cornwall's north coast is a treasure trove of quirky cafes, traditional pubs and fine dining restaurants - head further afield to Truro which offers a larger selection of eateries including Mannings and The Thomas Daniell.
