    • “We have stayed at Pen Nare before. The house was exactly as we had expected and met our needs for a 5 bedroom house well. Location is perfect and facilities in the house are good. Clean and comfortable. We would love to rent this house again.”

    Dr Mackin, Dunmow, August 2018

    • “This is a beautiful well-loved family home and its position above the bay is ideal. Children love it for its hide and seek potential and adults for the wonderful reading material therein. Portscatho is an ideal place to start an exploration of the Roseland Peninsula.”

    Mr & Mrs Keen, Bradford-on-Avon, March 2018

Regional Information

PORTSCATHO St Mawes 5 miles ; Truro 15 miles ; Mevagissey 13 miles Once an important pilchard-fishing village, today Portscatho is a popular holiday destination for those seeking a traditional seaside location. Brimming with Cornish charm, there is a sandy beach and a harbour, as well as a pub, a butcher’s, a greengrocer’s and a handful of gift shops and galleries. The coastline here is most scenic, with hidden coves, secret beaches and mile upon mile of undulating coastal footpath. The village of Gerrans is just a short stroll along the shore, and the beautiful Porthcurnick beach is also accessible via the coast path from Porthscatho. Portscatho offers a holiday away from it all, with a welcoming community spirit and several annual events which everyone gets involved with – including the fish festival each August.
