The village of Bridge is a short drive from the sandy beaches of Portreath on the north Cornwall coast, and located on the outskirts of this little hamlet is Orchard Leigh Cottage. With coastal walks galore and a friendly local pub within walking distance, this compact little cottage, which is dog-friendly too, is a super destination whatever the season. Walk through the front door into the main hub of the cottage – the fabulous open plan kitchen/diner – complete with a range cooker, will bring the whole family together and is the perfect place for catching up with one another. Take a step up into the small hallway, where you'll find a very useful ground floor shower-room, a must for washing away those sandy toes, and the bijoux little sitting-room. A small steep staircase leads up to the first floor with an additional shower-room and your two cute and comfy bedrooms. This little cottage is full of character, with little stippy steps on both floors.
The enclosed courtyard is a sun-trap in the summer and the perfect spot for enjoying an aperitif after a day walking those local coast paths.
Orchard Leigh Cottage is ideal for cyclists. Not only can you store your bikes in the courtyard, you also have The Mineral Tramway Trail cycle path literally on your doorstep. Many of the old tramways have been converted into cycle paths and the one opposite Orchard Leigh Cottage takes you into Portreath or further along to Devoran.
Portreath is an excellent choice for the whole family. Why not grab a pasty or two from the local Portreath Bakery and take them along to the beach, or up to the cliffs and have a picnic. The views from the coastal path along the cliffs are spectacular and seals can often be spotted playing together in the coves. Sit back and enjoy the show and make special memories to take back from Cornwall.
