Quince Cottage enjoys a magical location perched on a hill overlooking Gerrans Bay with stunning views over a field to Portscatho and beyond. Just a short walk from one of the South Coast's best beaches and in the heart of the extremely popular Roseland Peninsula, this is a holiday destination you won't forget!

Property Details

Quince Cottage is only a short walk from Pendower Beach which, at low tide, extends a mile east and includes Carne Beach with the famous Nare Hotel sitting on the cliff top. This great property is easily accessible by road and is on a bank set back from the A3078 Tregony to St Mawes road which gives excellent access to the rest of the Roseland. It is also a 10 minute walk from the beach and is a short drive away from Veryan with its historic roundhouses and the quaint fishing village of Portloe.

To the west is the traditional fishing village of Portscatho although now this caters mainly for the tourist industry and is an artist's retreat with plenty of little galleries. The Roseland peninsula is famous for some of the finest stretches of coastline in the country with sandy beaches, secluded bays and majestic promontories - all of which can be viewed from, or walked to, from Quince Cottage.

This leads through a short corridor with door leading to the downstairs bathroom with shower over, hand basin and WC. Further door into the kitchen with fitted units and all modern conveniences.

Property Location


The Roseland Peninsula is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and forms one of the finest sections of Cornwall's South Coast. From Mevagissey to St Mawes and bordered by the Fal Estuary to the west, the Roseland Peninsula has been drawing visitors for years with its splendid coastline, unique gardens, historic villages and superb sailing waters. A truly magnificent part of Cornwall, the Roseland Peninsula is a wonderful place to spend a memorable holiday. With The Lost Gardens of Heligan and The Eden Project in one direction and Falmouth and the National Maritime Museum in the other the Roseland is brimming with places to visit and things to do.

The delightful and charming village of Veryan on the Roseland Peninsula is most famous for its nineteenth century thatched Round Houses. There are five in all, two pairs of which stand at each end of the village and another in the centre. They were originally built by a missionary named Reverend Jeremiah Trist for his daughters. In a round house there are no corners where the devil can hide. A crucifix on the top of each one adds extra protection! Portloe is considered by many to be the jewel in the crown of the Roseland peninsula and one of the prettiest villages in Cornwall. Its steep sided valleys has meant that it has managed to escape development over the years and many buildings differ little from when they were built. Sir John Betjeman said of Portloe "One of the least spoiled and most impressive of Cornish fishing villages". Nearby is the lovingly restored Melinsey Mill where you can relax in a charming valley with a delicious Cornish cream tea.

St Mawes Castle, built by Henry VIII in the 16th century sits on Castle Point at the mouth of the River Fal. At the top of St Mawes, Lamorran Gardens house a wonderful collection of tropical plants with lovely views down into the Harbour. St Just-in-Roseland has arguably the most photographed church in Cornwall. The 13th century church sits quietly tucked away on the edge of the creek. The Veryan Roundhouses are a must see, on the way to Nare Head, where you will find the most spectacular views of Gerrans Bay. The little village of Portloe nestles in lovely valley and is one of Cornwall's quintessential spots. Portscatho has a number of art galleries and many artists find the light in this harbour village inspires much of their work. The Roseland Inn at Philleigh is a 16th century pub just waiting for you to visit, as is the newly refurbished Smugglers Cottage at Tolverne, perfect for that afternoon Cornish Cream Tea, now run by Tregothnan Estate home to the UK's first tea plantation. The most popular thing to do though on the Roseland is simply to walk and enjoy some of Cornwall's most beautiful coastline.

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.

Portscatho and its neighbouring village of Gerrans are located on the eastern coast of the Roseland Peninsula, 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 past Towan beach and out to 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 place to relax.

There are some stunning beaches around Gerrans Bay from Carne and Pendower in the east stretching round through Porthcurnick (Rosevine) and on to Towan and Porthbeor at the west, they are nearly all very accessible and have plenty of exposed sand at low tide and magical rock pools which can keep children engaged for hours! Most importantly compared to the hustle and bustle of the north coast they are comparatively empty!

A real gem in the beautiful Roseland.

A wonderful week with everything you needed for a really relaxing stay. This was our first visit to the Roseland and we werenA?t disappointed. The cottage was ideally located with loads of places to explore right from the doorstep. Everything you needed was provided to make your stay a home from home. Wonderfully clean and tidy and very cosy. Just the place to relax after a days walking.

From the Owner:
We are delighted that you so enjoyed your first visit to the Roseland - it is such a beautiful area of Cornwall. Quince Cottage is very much 'our home' and we always hope that our guests view it as theirs during their stay.

Cottage with a view

We had a great stay at Quince Cottage. Spotlessly clean and had everything you could possibly need. We didn't tire of the views over the field to the sea and found ourselves sitting in the conservatory in the evenings watching the sheep and changing sky instead of watching TV. The cottage is a great base for exploring nearby (tricky walk down to the beach though) and for visiting places like St Mawes, Truro and villages like Portloe and Portscatho. The cottage is on the main road to St Mawes so care needed driving out of the gate. Thoroughly recommend this cosy cottage and hope to return in the future.

An excellent stay in an extremely comfortable cottage

We had a fabulous week staying in Quince Cottage. The cottage is in a perfect position for exploring the Roseland Peninsula with great local walks and easy access to the beach. The cottage was spotlessly clean and everything we needed was readily available. The bed was very comfortable and there were excellent views across the bay from the bedroom. The cottage was lovely and warm with the open fire being an added bonus. Thank you Caroline and Cornwall Cottages for your prompt and helpful responses to our questions. We will not hesitate to recommend Quince Cottage to friends and family in the future.

From the Owner:
We are so pleased when we have guests staying at Quince who appreciate the delights of staying there in the winter. It is a time of year in Cornwall that we love - particularly when we see the daffodils in flower at Ruan High Lanes over Christmas. It makes Spring seem not too far away!

Lovely homely Cottage.

Lovely cottage in an excellent location. Very well equipped, we couldn't have asked for better. The view from the main bedroom (Blue room) was a delight! To wake seeing the sun come up, exposing the sea view was a lovely way to start the day. We had many lovely, but strenuous coastal walks directly from the cottage. I would highly recommend Quince Cottage, very homely, cosy and warm, a pleasure to return to after a long days walk.

From the Owner:
I find that one of the joys of staying at Quince Cottage in the winter months is to wake up and watch the sun rise over Nare Head. I'm glad that you enjoyed it too. Plus sitting in front of the log fire in the evenings.....

Short break on the Roseland penisular

Lovely cottage with amazing views from conservatory and bedroom within close proximity to excellent beach. Good secure garden for the dog. Close to St Mawes, Truro, Eden project etc. Good walks from cottage along coastal path and nice walk to nearby tearoom at the mill (well worth a visit). Would certainly stay again.

From the Owner:
Well behaved dogs are always welcome at Quince Cottage - they have been enjoying the cottage, the garden and all the lovely walks in The Roseland since my mother bought Quince Cottage 65 years ago - she was a great dog lover. Although I think that the owners appreciate the view more than the dogs!

Our stay at Quince Cottage

Our stay at the cottage was lovely. Private, peaceful, magnificent views, cosy and old world but with modern conveniences. Prior to this visit we have stayed at Quince Cottage for over 35 years. First taking our young family, later the grandchildren and now enjoying it once more as 'oldies'! The Roseland cannot be beaten; for its beauty and so many places of interest to visit one is never bored even on rainy days!

Gorgeous cottage in ideal location.

We stayed here for a week with our 14 year old daughter. Great location with lots or beaches and places nearby to visit. The cottage is lovely and clean and well equipped with anything you would need...we've never played so many board games! The views from the conservatory are stunning and this is where we spent most of our time. The garden is huge and was great for our 2 dogs. There was even cows in the field next door! The only negatives was the road outside is busy, make sure to keep the gate closed. The downstairs bathroom was a pain but you soon got used to it! It would be nice to have a picnic bench and BBQ outside and a hose to wash the dogs and wetsuits. But overall I would recommend this property and its fab location.

What can I say? A lovely little cottage furnished beautifully with amazing views! Comfortable beds and absolutely everything you need for your holiday, very well equipped but do remember to take a hair dryer! Great bakery/cafe just down the road and good pub food locally too. Thoroughly enjoyed our week and really hope to return next year. Thank you for sharing your lovely property!

From the Owner:
We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay and we are always delighted when guests want to return to Quince Cottage. We always leave a hairdryer in the blue room, in one of the drawers beside the wash hand basin, but it may have been moved. If it is no longer there we will certainly replace it.

The cottage was very nice and friendly inside with good vieuws and plenty of information.

Hello, we had a good holiday in the Quince cottage. A nice cottage with a good view and nice weather (Sunny). Every day we were looking around in Cornwall and liked it a lot. In the evening and morning it was nice staying in the cottage also sleeping was very good. For us as people from the Netherlands is was nice to live in an englisch old cottage, only my length of 2 meters was a bit too high for hitting the ceiling sometimes. Nevertheless we enjoyed it. Also many thanks for all the information about walking, beaches, gardens etc. and all the little ingredients we could use in the kitchen. We had a very nice week here, many thanks and in future perhaps we come back here. Best Regards, Gerrit and Liesbeth and children.

We are so pleased that our Dutch guests enjoyed their stay at Quince Cottage and we hope that they will visit Quince Cottage again.

A quirky cottage in. A fabulous little cTion

The cottage is on the road above Pendower Beach with fantastic views. The cliff path and beach are easily accessed. The beach leads onto Carne beach and walking along the beach at low tide or the cliff path otherwise gives great access to the Nare hotel. The Plume of Feathers in Portscatho and the Roseland Inn at Phileigh are 10 mins away and both excellent pubs. The cottage itself has a sunny conservatory, a tiny kitchen and a cosy lounge. The 2 large bedrooms are up a narrow flight of stairs. The only downside is that the bathroom is alongside the conservatory at the back of the house. The service from Cornwall Cottages was excellent and the instructions very clear. The owner contacted us after booking to answer any questions. She left maps and guide books and excellent information in the cottage. Parking is alongside the cottage and the garden is fenced. Our dog had a fabulous time as did we

4 night stay

A cosy, well equipped cottage with an open fire which adds to the relaxing holiday experience. Well placed to explore the coast & the Roseland area & a lovely large dog friendly beach only around 10 to 15 minutes walk away. However, there is a fast road to the front of the cottage & you do need to take extra care when walking it. You can access the coast path & beach via a footpath across the fields, which is close to the cottage. Great views from the cottage & the conservatory is a lovely place to relax & take in the views & ever changing skies. A very relaxing place to escape to.

From the Owner:
I am so pleased that our guests enjoyed their stay in our cosy cottage. We do advise guests using the footpath to reach the beach, to go down the lane opposite and join the footpath a short way down there, thereby avoiding walking down the road if it is busy. We enjoy relaxing in the conservatory, enjoying the spectacular view of Gerrans Bay from there.

Cosy cottage, beautiful view

We stayed at Quince Cottage for one week in November 2017 and had a very well needed break. It is a cosy little cottage with beautiful sea views and has everything required for a holiday let. The owners clearly love their second home, adding finishing touches to make their guests comfortable e.g. throws for warmth on cooler nights, extra pillows and duvets, modern kitchen well stocked with utensils and crockery etc... The conservatory was lovely and warm during the day when the sun shone and I spent many a happy hour there relaxing with jigsaw puzzles / books. The lounge was cosy and wood was provided for a fire should one be needed. I have one suggestion for the owners and that is to put a rail and curtain over the door into the front porch (foot of stairs) for the windier days, it was quite draughty on a couple of evenings although not cold enough to light the fire. We had a lovely stay and would like to thank the owners for providing all the information required to make Quince Cottage a lovely holiday destination - I enjoyed reading the history of the cottage too, a nice thought to share it with your guests.

Very Comfortable

We recently spent a lovely week at Quince Cottage. Quince Cottage is a comfortable, cozy property that enjoys lovely sea views. The cottage is well equipped, nicely furnished and has WiFi access. It is ideally placed for walking and exploring the Roseland coast and villages and helpfully accepts dogs. The only slight minus point is that you need to be very careful when exiting the drive onto the main road as visibility is somewhat restricted. A mirror placed on the opposite side of the road might assist. As regular visitors to Cornwall Quince Cottage will certainly be on our short list for a return visit.

Lovely cottage with stunning view

This was our first stay in the Roseland Peninsula and we loved it here. Beautiful countryside, hidden coves and beaches and lovely quaint and pretty villages. The cottage was in a fantastic location just above a beautiful National Trust beach and we made the most of the short trip down to the sea and cafe there. The cottage had a lovely modern kitchen and bathroom, quaint but comfortable living room and pretty bedrooms. We really enjoyed our stay and would love to visit again.

We so enjoyed our week at Quince Cottage in Cornwall! The cottage is in a great location and has a fantastic view. The peaceful setting was just what we needed and we were able to travel all around the Cornwall Peninsula for hiking and sightseeing, with a wonderful home base to return to at the end of the day. The cottage had everything we needed and we definitely recommend it to others!

What a view

Going to this cottage we anticipated a nice view as per website pictures. The photos do the actual view no justice. Both from the conservatory and the master bedroom the view is magnificent. We were there in changing weather conditions and the view changed every minute. Also at night it is great. Ships lying in the bay, the lights of Portscatho in the distanse; a fairlytale landscape. The only down side we could find was the fact that the road next to the house is fairly busy if that is something that concerns you.

The view from Quince is always a treat and the cottage is a comfortable place to relax. Everyone enjoys sitting in the conservatory at any time of year where the view can be enjoyed to the full. We are always so pleased that guests enjoy staying at Quince Cottage.

Quince Cottage Stay

Our stay at Quince Cottage was lovely. My 2 girls especially enjoyed some of the games that were there and they loved their pink bedroom and slept really well as the beds were comfy. The views are beautiful and you can see the sea from nearly every window. We would recommend staying here as long as you do not mind driving everywhere as the road is busy (although the cottage is set back so you do not see any passing traffic) with no pavement so dangerous to walk along especially with children. Saying that the cottage is based in a central place with a lovely beach below the surrounding fields.

excellent value for money a home from home feeling

This is our second stay at Quince Cottage and we love staying there, although not sophisticated it is so comfortable and relaxing and of course the views are to die for. It is obviously a much loved family home, which the owners share in their history of ownership, we shall certainly return although it does seem to be booked for many months ahead.

Cornwall in February

We spent the week in the conservatory! It was just lovely to sit and watch the sea. Sheep were in the field adjoining the cottage and we woke one morning to the sight of a baby lamb. The footpath down to the beach was 'entertaining' with two small dogs to say the least, but we all managed it. The cottage was delightful, comfortable, well equipped and in a quiet location. We would certainly consider another visit.

From the Owner:
Thank you! Ian and I are glad that you enjoyed your time at Quince Cottage. Spring time in Cornwall - particularly when there are lambs in the field - is always a joy.

fabulous week

Quince cottage is in an amazing setting&is very cosy,there is everything there to cater for your needs and we had a lovely weeks holiday. One tip for visitors in October,keep all the windows closed when you go out otherwise you will come back to a horror story,there is a fly problem&you will find them clustered all over the windows....a bit scary if you don't like flies,particularly in the bedroom. Other than that Quince cottage is definitely a hidden gem&clearly a much loved family home.

Fantastic Stay in Pendower

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Quince cottage, so much included in the property we needed for nothing all week. Lovely views from the garden and conservatory with a field of young cows for neighbours which kept our girls entetained for hours. There are some great walks from the cottage, a few minutes down to the quiet beach where you can pick up the coastal path up to Portscatho for lunch, views along the way are stunning. Would definately stay here again

From the Owner:
We are always delighted when our guests enjoy Quince Cottage as much as we do! Quince Cottage is very much home to us, but one that we are pleased to share with others.

Very comfortable cottage, great location, some patio furniture, eg table and chairs would have been welcome as great views from the cottage. Would book again.

Excellent cottage, and a quick response to issues.

An excellent little cottage with a remarkable view of the craggy coastline. A couple of small issues meant a quick email. A confusion in the instructions meant that previous rubbish was still outside the door. And the central heating gave up. But the heating was sorted quickly and I was assured the unfortunate rubbish problem wouldn't happen again. The cottage was warm and comfortable, and everything needed was supplied. Altogether, a wonderful place to stay, within easy reach of some great coastlines.

From the Owner:
We are delighted that our guests enjoyed Quince Cottage. We were pleased that Kai (our excellent plumber) was able to sort out the heating as soon as we contacted him. Extra instructions about the rubbish should ensure that all runs smoothly in future.
