After working in bakeries from the age of 14 and then studying bakery and confectionery at the Plymouth College of further and higher education at the age of 23 it was time to put my talents to the test. In 1988, I decided to buy a bakery outlet in the small Cornish coastal village of Portreath. I employed only a handful of bakers, crimpers and shop assistants.
As the business became more renowned, the staff team grew. Portreath Bakery was finally on the map. People travelled far and wide for a freshly baked pasty, hand crimped before their very eyes. As time progressed we started to produce much more Cornish fare and continue to do so today. We bake a selection of breads, cakes and savouries such as our famous Cornish pasties, heavy cake, scones and delicious saffron cakes to name but a few, all on the premises. We are also specialists in celebration cakes and wedding cakes of distinction.
Over the years we have catered for Sir Harold Wilson, Tony Blair, Anne Beckwith-Smith and more famously HM the Queen and HRH The Princess Royal.

HIDDEN GEM - LANNER TRAIL 1
Half way up Carn Marth on the right hand side of the trail, a little before you reach the amphitheatre, are some stone steps (uneven and often slippery) which lead down to an old well beneath the trail surface. This is Figgy Dowdy’s Well – also known as St Margery Daws Well – which was once the main source of water for the area and where 19th century children used to bring their dolls for baptism at Easter time.
