Property Location


Portscatho and its neighbouring village of Gerrans are located on the eastern coast of the Roseland Peninsula, Cornwall, overlooking the dramatic Gerrans Bay. A truly peaceful waterside village, Portscatho is a lovely place for a holiday. There are miles of coastal and countryside footpaths to explore, particularly along St Anthony's Head. Portscatho was once a busy fishing harbour, but now it has become a haven for artists due to the striking light which is particularly good in the morning sun. More than anything, Portscatho is a relaxing place. The beaches such as Porthcurnick, Towan and Porthbeor are simply idyllic and these are only minutes from the village. With a superb local butchers shop, 2 great little pubs and a well stocked local store, Portscatho and Gerrans are a lovely place to spend a holiday.

Just to the west of Portscatho is St Mawes which is one of the finest waterside villages in Cornwall. Situated overlooking an idyllic bay on the eastern side of the famous Falmouth Estuary, St Mawes has one of the mildest climates in Britain due to its proximity to the Gulf Stream. The sea is at the heart of the village and has helped to shape St Mawes from the little fishing village to the fashionable holiday destination that is so popular with visitors. A mecca for boating enthusiasts, St Mawes is a particularly popular sailing centre. Weekly club racing, village regattas and larger events are commonplace on the superb waters of the bay all through the summer. St Mawes has so much to offer the visitor. St Mawes Castle was built by Henry VIII and is a splendid place to take in the views of the Carrick Roads.

There are miles of coastal and countryside walks to take in and some idyllic beaches on which to relax and watch the world go by. The little Place ferry takes visitors to explore St Anthony's Head or there are regular ferries to Falmouth. Being situated on the seafront, the village is also known for the restaurants and pubs that serve superb fish and shellfish dishes all year round. There is a selection of pubs & hotels with restaurants (including the renowned Tresanton Hotel) all within easy walking distance. There is a range of shops all within a few minutes’ walk including a Cooperative store, Post Office, chemist, butcher, baker and art & clothes shops. The village also has a doctor’s surgery and a dentist’s surgery.

There are some stunning locations to eat on the Roseland including the Michelin starred Driftwood restaurant on the way down to Rosevine beach where the chef, Chris Eden, and his team deliver a truly special experience, you will obviously need to book this one early. There is also the Hidden Hut located above the field at Rosevine with its eclectic menus, convivial atmosphere, bring your own booze and social media driven events list! (Best find them on Facebook to see what is on!) The Hidden Hut has received rave reviews from the local and national press. Slightly further afield are the Nare Hotel and Quarterdeck with fine dining and dramatic views across Gerrans Bay, the world renowned Tresanton Hotel in St Mawes or the newly refurbished Idle Rocks Hotel. On top of this list there are some excellent country pubs in all of the local villages supporting Cornish produce and local beers.

Family stay at Chywartha

We really enjoyed our stay at Chywartha, the location was great with a lovely sea view, and only a short walk to the beach, shop and the local pub. We had plenty of room and the and were very comfortable. We would certainly stay at Chywartha and the only slight issue we had was the dog didn't like the wooden stairs between the kitchen area and living roo.

Fantastic holiday. Fantastic views. The best holiday we've had.

This was perfect. It is close enough to beach to carry your kayak. We had a magical time definitely coming back. We love visiting Cornwall and do so every year. But I think we found some where which suits are family perfect. Went to beach every day for swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, rock pooling and just chilling. Lovely sheltered bay. The cottage is fabulous. It has every thing you need and more. The views are amazing.

Lovely family holiday

Gorgeous sea views from the house. Walking distance to the harbour and the near beach, Porthcurnick. Lovely peaceful cottage, well equipped kitchen with plenty of crockery for the 7 of us that stayed. Lovely and clean too. Would definitely go again.

Lovely area to visit, property needs some attention, value for money reflects that

We were delighted with the overall location of the property and the partial sea views however the rear mature trees could do with cutting back to enhance the view and the fence at the bottom of the garden could do with filling in to block the view of the car park from the garden. Also on arrival we noticed a great deal of rubbish had piled up, we arrived Friday, bin day is Monday, I would say more than two weeks worth. As a result we had a visit from a rather large rat, this could have been avoided if the housekeepers had helped dispose of the rubbish build up. On arrival the property smelt damp, there was a large damp patch in the kitchen, we lost the smell by burning candles and airing the kitchen but it needs sorting.

Had a great family stay at Chywartha.

We had everything we needed for a family get together, there was plenty of accommodation for 6 adults and a child without feeling crowded. The view of the sunrise at the horizon was fantastic.The town was only a short walk away with a well equipped local store and butchers. Had some great walks along the coast in the evenings without needing a car. It was our first trip to this part of Cornwall and I'm sure it won't be our last. The excellent views from the garden would be improved by cutting the shrubs back - when sitting in the garden only one chair had a view.,

Weeks holiday in Portscatho

A lovely house close to all the lovely beaches and walks of Roseland, a great base that was spacious for us as we were only two plus two dogs. Think it would benefit from a double bed upstairs but that is just a preference. Very comfortable would definitely go again.

A very pleasant stay in a quiet village location.

Very good welcome instructions. We had a very pleasant stay in the house which is in a quiet village location. The accommodation provided plenty of space, very comfortable seating and beds, and all the necessary equipment to make for a very relaxing stay. Very nice and reasonable pubs nearby to eat out as well. Ideal for exploring the south coast we also made extensive use of the King Harry ferry. This helped bypass the busy roads around Truro. One small comment, a shower in family bathroom would be welcome.

Enjoyable brief stay at Portscatho

This was our first stay in Portscatho, and we were very pleasantly surprised. We booked late to go just after Christmas, and had a great break in this very pretty Cornish town. The house was in good condition and very comfortable. It was just what we were looking for being just a few minutes walk from the town and the beach. We were able to take the dog and walk her on the beach out of season. There was a shop in the town which sold everything we needed, and there we good options to eat out. Shame we didn't make the Hidden Hut which has great reviews, but did find the Coffee shack on the beach which is a must. We were only there for 3 night but had a really good break.

Ok-ish stay but not entirely small dog friendly

Somewhat disappointed that after checking that the garden was enclosed, our small inquisitive dog almost got out of the garden on the first day and we spent the week having to put him on the lead every time he went out into the garden - the fencing (wide square mesh) and gate with gap beneath are OK for a larger dog but not a small one. The double bedroom mattress is definitely in need of replacing - a very uncomfortable bed. There was also a damp smell in this room. Overall cleanliness was ok, but a dirty moldy yoghurt put was behind the kitchen radiator and I don't think behind any of the radiators have been cleaned in a long while. A well equipped kitchen with all you need for a self catering holiday.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this comfortable family house in a superb location. The house has lovely sea views and is within easy walking distance of the coastal footpath, beaches and creeks. We highly recommend this house and would love to return.

Lovely family holiday home

Chywartha is a lovely family holiday home in the beautiful village of Portscatho. Local shops include A R Day Butchers, Ralph's Store and two good pubs Royal Standard and Plume of Feathers (both do food). Lots of places to visit from Portscatho - Lost Gardens of Heligan near Mevagissey is well worth a visit (you will need a whole day so much to see), Falmouth and Truro.

Great Sea Views

Chywartha is a pleasant house with great views of the sea from the back windows and garden. The kitchen is well equipped with the welcome inclusion of scales and a sharp knife although it was a disappointment that the majority of the crockery was chipped and there was a poor selection of mugs. Both bathrooms are large although the upstairs one would definitely benefit from the addition of a shower either over the bath or in a separate cubicle. The wifi worked extremely well. Overall it provided a good base for our three generations of family for a short break and the provision of outdoor furniture gave superb views over the sea.

Birthday celebration at Chywartha

Our stay at Chywartha as a family (6 of us plus dog) to celebrate a special birthday was very successful due in no small part to the house itself which was very comfortable, spacious and well equipped with wonderful sea views. Portscatho is delightful and breakfast at Tatam's overlooking the sea and visits to the Hidden Hut at Porthcurnick Beach were truly enjoyable.
