    “There was a pot of clotted cream ...”

    There was a pot of clotted cream and margarine in the fridge and a jar of jam and four scones in the kitchen waiting for us which was a lovely start to our holiday. The cottage was very tidy and spacious. The only negative thing I can say is that the washing machine didn't spin, drain or wash our clothes thoroughly and needs to be looked at. Also the washing line in the garden needs to be replaced as the current one is unusable. Luckily there was a dryer. There also needs to be locks on the ...

    There was a pot of clotted cream and margarine in the fridge and a jar of jam and four scones in the kitchen waiting for us which was a lovely start to our holiday. The cottage was very tidy and spacious. The only negative thing I can say is that the washing machine didn't spin, drain or wash our clothes thoroughly and needs to be looked at. Also the washing line in the garden needs to be replaced as the current one is unusable. Luckily there was a dryer. There also needs to be locks on the en-suite doors and the window to the main bathroom didn't open. There was off road parking for one car which was fab. and there was a small beach within a two minute walk and a general shop also within a minute's walk. All in all it was a pleasant week although we won't be staying here again as we like to try different areas to stay in each year.

About the location

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.
