This is a dog friendly property and there are few places with such good access to some of the most stunning coastal walks in the county.

Property Location


Portscatho and the neighbouring village of Gerrans are located on the southern 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 and Towan are simply idyllic and 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.

Crotchet Cottage is about 8 minutes drive along the St Anthony Headland from Portscatho, in the little hamlet of Bohortha. The beaches at Towan and St Anthony are only a short drive away (about 1 mile). Please do have a look at the location map for a more detailed idea of the position. The St Anthony Headland walks can be taken straight from the cottage. You can also walk to the Place Ferry landing stage where during the day you can catch the boat to St Mawes. There is a regular ferry between St Mawes and Falmouth. In the evenings, there is a water taxi available (booking essential).

St Mawes has so much to offer the visitor and can be accessed via the little ferry at Place Manor. 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. 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 Hotel Tresanton) 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 both a doctor’s and a dentist’s surgery. St Mawes 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.

Events on the Roseland reach fever point in August when sailing regattas, carnivals, fayres and fun days take place all over the Roseland and the waters of the Carrick Roads. It is a memorable place for many people who return year after year to enjoy the magic of this beautiful place.

A wonderful cottage - cant wait to return!

A great cottage for a holiday exploring the south Cornwall coast. The cottage is really well equipped, the kitchen is lovely to sit in and the bedrooms feel cosy. The bed is very comfortable, even with a young baby we felt very rested. The location is beautiful - being so close to the coast path is great for walking and getting to the beaches quickly. It was nice not to use the car! The garden with the cottage was a treat and provided us with apples for our whole holiday. Crotchet Cottage is peaceful and cosy - a real find in the beautiful Roseland.

Ideal Holiday in a Perfect Cottage in a Perfect Location

We loved staying in Crochet Cottage. The cottage itself was well equipped with comfortable bedrooms and a wonderful kitchen. We appreciated the change of linen at the end of the first week. The location is fantastic with footpaths to Place and to the best beaches in England! We walked into Portscatho and canoed over to St Mawes. We enjoyed great fish and chips from Portscatho and St Mawes. We will definitely be back to stay again.

An excellent location, well furnished and very comfortable cottage providing a relaxing break

The cottage afforded all the facilities we were expecting, whilst the car parking facilities aren't ideal we didn't experience any issues.

Comfortable cottage in a really good location

We had a really good holiday. The cottage exceeded our expectations. We loved being able to walk to the coastal path in just a couple of minutes from the door. The boats in the Fal estuary provided on-going interest each day. We enjoyed the nearby towns of St Mawes and Portscatho, with the added bonus of being able to walk or travel by ferry to reach them, meaning you were not reliant on a car.

October at Crochet Cottage

We had a great time, the cottage is lovely and the location was great, perfectly placed for lots of lovely walks, exploring the area and just relaxing. We had everything we needed and were very comfortable. Two weeks just sped by. The only problems we had were with the very low beams in the sitting room (all the others were find) which my tall husband kept banging his head on - and he never normally does this! Could have done with a lighter weight quilt on the double bed, it was very heavy. The shower is very slow - but appreciate the cottage is very old and this may be hard to change.

A lovely stay

A great place to stay for walkers but rather remote with narrow roads to get in and out. We had a wonderful time as we did lots of walking in the area and did not need to use the car.

From the Owner:
Thank you for your review, and we are pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Crotchet Cottage. It’s one of the advantages of the location, that you can enjoy the surrounding countryside without using the car.

Quiet location away from the crowd

Lovely cottage, well kept, kitchen was great and overall we felt at home. The master bed was very comfy & we were impressed with the standard of the bedding. Only two niggles, the living room furniture needs a re-jig. It was awkward to watch tv for one guest. Secondly, parking can be an issue as there is a working farm next door & we got the feeling this was a contentious issue. However we had a peaceful holiday in a lovely location & we would return again.

From the Owner:
We are delighted you loved the cottage and area. Thank you for the comment about the living room furniture, it's next on our list! Sorry to hear about the parking, i wasn't aware it was a contentious issue and will speak to the farmer when we are next down.

Nicely located for walks

Pleasant property but found it difficult for parking as non visual disabled.Shower not good.Gd beds.

From the Owner:
Thank you for choosing to stay in Crotchet Cottage. We hope you enjoyed the area and the cottage. We are sorry if you had difficulties in the immediate area. It is only a small village, and the cottage is next to a working farm, which many guests like. Through the description and photographs we do try to offer an accurate picture of the area. Thank you for your comment on the shower, which we will consider at the next opportunity. Best regards, John
