Pen Nare is a commanding double-fronted period house on two levels, just two minutes stroll from Portscatho village centre and beach.

A brilliant house for family get-togethers.

Outhouses provide storage for surf/beach gear.

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.

    “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.
