The Fountain Springs is an ideall guest house situated in Portreath, 3 miles from Redruth on the northern coastline of Cornwall. It has plenty of parking and is within walking distance of the beach, cafes and restaurants. We stayed in Room 3, which has a sea view. The guest house is family run and friendly. We were met by a rather friendly local cat sunning itself on the wall, then went in and were shown the lovely room, which was clean and tidy. We had been given lots of fresh clean towels and were shown everything and told to buzz down if we needed anything. The room was lovely and the bed was clean and comfy. There were plenty of mirrors and spare blankets and hairdryer in the wardrobe. The ensuite was spacious with free toiletries (not really expected ina guest house). There were tea and coffee facilities and a nice tv in the room too. We were given a key to the front door and given advise on where to eat. The guest house was peaceful and no noise travelled, so excellent sleep. Breakfast was lovely and consisted of full english, or continental or anything you wanted really. Owner could see that our group were slightly the worse for a few too many shandys the previous night, and was lovely to us and left us with our hangovers! He was friendly and knowledgable, but not overly so. We knew he was there if we needed him, but he was in the background which is perfect when you are on holiday!
Absolutely would recommend this place to anyone - friends and family. Rooms available on the ground floor, but there are steps upto the front door, so may be some accessibility problems, but call and ask.
