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 and the management team have just opened Tatams wood fired Taverna in the village. 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.

Great place to stay

We were a family of 4 adults on holiday in a part of Cornwall we know and love very much. It was our first and hopefully not our last stay at Clipper View. The accommodation is spotlessly clean and equipped with just about everything you could need, all high spec and everything looks brand-new. The view is spectacular and it is a fantastic location for the village, beach and coastal path. We can't recommend this place highly enough.

Perfect family holiday

We had a fantastic stay at Clipper View. Everything we could have ever needed was provided and the house was in fantastic condition, not a speck of dust in sight. Quite a few steep steps from the parking space to the door but as the location was so fantastic we didnA?t need to use the car at all. 5 minutes walk to the beach and pretty village with pubs, restaurant, cafe, convenience store and butchers. Our 2 year olds had the time of their lives and canA?t wait to return!

Delightful stay in stunning area.

Our family have been spending holidays in this area since 1989. We really really like it! We were already aware of this property as we have walked past it on many occasions along the coast path, so were aware that it had terraced front and back gardens with associated steps and slopes. This was also made clear on the descriptive literature prior to booking. This did not prove to be any problem for our two grandsons (ages 1 and 3 years) or any of the adults; but we wisely left our 99 year old mother in law back in Sussex! This property was the best equipped and cleanest property in which we have ever stayed. The owners should be congratulated for choosing top quality equipment and furnishings. The management company were meticulous in communicating with us and should we have had any queries or problems, we were quietly confident that a satisfactory conclusion would have been found. As a result we could concentrate in relaxing and enjoying the lovely village of Portscatho and locality. We were blessed with sunshine for the entire week - absolute bliss. Booked up for the same week next year already!

Views we have been dreaming of...

Clipper View is the best holiday home myself and my wife have stayed in so far, and we have stayed in around 15 in the last 2 years. It has been renovated to the highest standards and feels like a luxury and extremely comfortable home, rather than just a holiday home. Highlights in the property include under floor heating, which is extremely effective, the granite worktop in the kitchen feels solid and special, and the sash windows give real character. The kitchen is fully equipped to stay for an extended period. Then we have the terrace, which sits on an elevated position, looking down to the sea and the selling point of this place. The greatest feature of all is the location. We have been searching for a cliff top view and this one is the best so far. It can not be over estimated how good this view is. The sound of the sea running into the shore is magical, it goes on all day and night, and we loved experiencing it. The view is still there while sitting in bed, having a shower and sitting in the living room. It is the dominating feature and we feel lucky to have experienced it for our 10 day stay. We would highly recommend Clipper View to anyone wanting a quiet, quaint, Cornwall, seaside, sea view location.

Fabulous week in a beautiful location :-)

We had a fantastic time at Portscatho, the beach is beautiful, unspoilt and a wonderful place for childern and adults to enjoy. We loved the short walk down to the beach from the house,,enjoyed the hospitality of the Hidden Hut, the Rosevine and the local pub the Plume .Fantasic food at all 3! The house itself is exceptional. A lot of thought and attention has gone into the design, superb quality - everything you could wish for to make your stay truly comfortable! We can see its a well loved home and we felt priviledged to be able to enjoy it. You can never tire of that view - absolutely stunning. Thank you and we've already booked for next year! :-)

Perfect Portscatho

I reluctantly write this review, as selfishly didn't want to encourage people to our new found gem! Clipper View was exactly what we were looking for. Beautiful house with an even more beautiful view. Easy stroll to the beach and pub. Perfect. We hope to return soon.

Perfect house in a perfect location

Clipper View was exceptionally comfortable, spotlessly clean and in a stunningly perfect location. We all loved the house and its surroundings and spent a very happy week there, sorry we couldn't stay longer. We loved sitting out on the terraced porch overlooking the sea and the south coastal path. Plenty to see and do, too: the nearby beach with delicious food from the Hidden Hut cafe; Portscatho with its harbour and pub and the coffee/hot chocolate bar overlooking the sea; nearby NT gardens, St. Anthony's Head path and beaches, Falmouth and the Maritime Museum and much more.
