  • “We think we should have been advised in advance that the owners were having major works done to their property and that this would cause restrictions on the access to the cottage.”

    Parking was a problem at times, with scaffolding, builders vehicles and debris on the footpath where we could exercise our dogs also causing problems. ...

    Parking was a problem at times, with scaffolding, builders vehicles and debris on the footpath where we could exercise our dogs also causing problems. The sitting out area was tiny, with a picnic table that really should be replaced and the smell of oil when you were in that area too much for comfort. There was also no dvd player, hairdryer or bath mat to stand on when you stepped out. Sarah did say to ask if we needed anything, but these items should be there anyway. The access to Pelyn Creek necessitated negotiating a rough track with an electric fence on one side, not ideal for anyone. The driveway should also have been highlighted in the description as this would not be accessible for anyone driving a sports car, for instance. To tell visitors when they make a final payment is too late, it isn't an easy drive down to the cottage. We have visited many cottages over the years, but this does not rate amongst the best when you take the cost into account. Very disappointing.

The property

A mile from Portscatho and a mile from Gerrans (pub), in a lovely location surrounded by wooded hills, a cottage attached to the residence of the friendly owners, their three children and small holding.

Pelyn Creek and a secluded tidal beach is a short walk away; (kayaking, sailing, windsurfing hire/tuition) on the Percuil River with views across to St Mawes; boat trailer parking space at Pelyn Creek, by arrangement.

Own outdoor seating area (picnic table, barbecue).The living area is on the first floor with elevated views across the garden and woodland and a feeling of being up in the treetops.

Front door into open-plan living/dining/kitchen (slimline dishwasher, washer-drier, microwave, fridge-freezer, electric oven) with beams, woodburner, sofa bed, TV/DVD, iPod dock and French windows from the dining area to balustrade.

Stairs down to two bedrooms (limited clothes-hanging space) - a double (5' sleigh bed) with door to seating area, and a twin; bathroom (suite, shower over bath).

A welcoming cottage in an idyllic, relaxed setting, lovely for watersports and walking countryside and riverbanks (footpath from the door). Portscatho: small former fishing village (good pubs, shops, galleries) on the shoreline of Gerrans Bay (beach with rock pools) on the beautiful Roseland Peninsula.

Porthcurnick Beach (Nat.

About the location


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.
