Property Location


Portscatho lies on the eastern edge of Cornwall’s Roseland Peninsula, from where it boasts wide sweeping views of Gerrans Bay and excellent coastal paths to St Anthony’s Head. Porthcurnick, Towan and Porthbeor beaches are mere minutes away and the village of St Mawes is also only a short 10 minute drive.

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 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 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 lovely places to spend a holiday.

Ten minutes away you have the Round Houses at Veryan, or St Mawes Castle built by Henry the VIII. You can walk to St Anthony and take in the views from the Headland, right across the bay to the Manacle Rocks, back past the entrance to the Helford River, Maenporth, Falmouth and round to St Mawes. Gerrans Bay is a relatively sheltered bay and is often filled with ships sheltering from the Atlantic, or waiting to go into Falmouth Docks. You never know what you will see moored up. In 2009 a car transporter famously sat just off Pencabe Point for the summer.

Great location

The cottage is in a fabulous location, itA?s an absolute joy to stroll down to the sea 30 seconds after leaving the door. Being opposite the pub isnA?t bad either! The cottage is really pretty and cosy, with a well appointed kitchen and nice bedrooms. Unfortunately the heavy rain had caused the conservatory to leak badly and we couldnA?t use it. My only criticisms would be that the settee in the lounge is dreadfully uncomfortable and that the front door is a real pain to lock from the outside - we eventually gave up and just used the back door.

Dirty carpets and upholstery

Great location to stay, The Plume of Feathers is a great pub with good food and service. Upholstery dirty on armchairs and sofa also dirty carpets. Could do with a clean! Otherwise comfortable with a well equipped kitchen. Not quite Cornish Boutique standard. The Hidden Hut is fabulous with amazing food well worth a visit.

Not entirely happy

I have never written a review before but I do feel that you probably need the feedback.I was kept awake as it was very noisy outside on the Friday and Saturday nights until after 1.00 am due to the proximity to the Harbour Club. The windows are single glazed and the main bedroom window doesn't close properly. The cottage was clean enough but felt uncared for in that the blinds were broken in the sitting room and bathroom, the shower screen needs replacing, the sofa and chairs were distinctly grubby and one of the lamps in the twin bedded room was broken. I did feel that it was overpriced considering it was only a two bedroomed cottage, in September, and needs some attention. We love Portscatho and have been several times before but will not be staying at Shorelines again.

Great location

It was in a good location and had all we needed. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom satisfactory. We didnt find the lounge area that comfortable, the sofa is not easy for 2 people and other chairs not that soft. Odd thing in kitchen that the microwave was nowhere near a plug and had to be placed on the floor to use. Upstairs there was no plug near a mirror to dry hair. I got the impression the owner had not 'lived' in the house, so that items were not well placed. It would have been nice if the outside area was better cared for. However location made up for it and we like the village and pub, the coffee shop and proximity to the sea and coast path. very good village shop and butchers just next door.

Lovely week with family

We found the cottage to be perfectly located for our needs. WeA?d definitely return! Our highlight was being able to just wander down to the beach, across the lane to the pub or just a few doors down from the local shop. The cottage itself was spacious and spotlessly clean. Perfect for our needs. The parking space was tricky to get into owing to a resident parking awkwardly off the lane however. WeA?d definitely recommend The Plume for food and drinks but book to avoid disappointment. The kids loved pool and table tennis at The Harbour Club of an evening. Porthcurnick beach is a 5 minute walk away and allows dogs. The hidden hut is a must. The only downsides to the cottage were a lack of glassware, no shaving point and the bed was rather uncomfortable really. Perhaps a new mattress would be a good investment.

The bed in the master bedroom has now been replaced by a new 5' double bed.

So nearly brilliant!

The location of the property was perfect! So close to the sea and all the village has to offer. Lovely kitchen really well equipped with everything you may need. Good bathroom and great to have a parking space. Such a shame that the bed in the double bedroom is so uncomfortable that you donA?t look forward to a good night sleep after a great day out. The outside could be a lovely place to eat or have an evening drink but it is really dated and is in need of a good tidy and a bit of work. There was also no guest book or contact details if we needed anything.

Enjoyable stay

Shorelines is a very well organised property with dishwasher and separate laundry/freezer area. It has a good shower and well equipped kitchen (with the surprising omission of a microwave). The property is roomy although more could be made of the conservatory area where a desk and low table took up too much space. The double bed, though furnished with delightful bedding was rather uncomfortable. Late night revellers from the Harbour Club and the pub opposite weA?re very noisy on a couple of nights. On the other hand the location is perfect for children to run down to the town beach, extremely close to the very well stocked shops, and Tatums coffee bar and the Taverna for pizzas. There is also car parking - very difficult in Portscatho during the season. WeA?d definitely stay there again.

A nice place to stay a really nice little cottage with every thing you need plus a few extras A bit of a job to park a car due to the very tight entrance could be a problem for a large car i parked in the street most of the time An interesting area to discover especially for walkers The only draw back that i feel might need to be improved is that it was not possible to speak to anybodyy unless you had an emergancy had a problem with the micro wave but could not contact anybody on the phone Over all a very good place to to stay at

another lovely stay at shorelines

It's a wonderful cottage in a great location. There's just a bit of tattiness that could do with sorting out - particularly windows and blinds, and the backyard could do with a spruce. But it's really a great cottage, a lot more spacious than you would expect. There were 2 evenings with slightly noisy late night revellers at the pub opposite - if the windows/glazing were sorted at the cottage, then the noise disturbance would have been less (especially the twin bedroom where the window actually has a gap at the top).

Perfect holiday cottage!

Had a fantastic 4 nights at this cottage. The location is absolutely perfect. Beach, coffee place, pub, cafe and local stores all within 15 seconds walk!! The cottage was exceptionally clean when we arrived and had everything you'd need, daughters were especially impressed with the fast broadband! Portscatho is the perfect base for exploring the Roseland so if you're a family of four stay in Shorelines. I know previous reviews mentioned the parking space. Yes it is tight, but wasn't a problem for our Astra. Look in the shed/ store in the courtyard- there's a larger fridge/ freezer in there and a washing machine and tumble dryer. We didn't realise they were there until 5 minutes before we left!

Lovely family holiday in portscatho

We've just returned from a fabulous holiday in portscatho staying at shorelines. When we arrived at the cottage everything was clean and the decor was nice with a big modern kitchen, clean appliances, plenty of crockery, cook wear, cutlery, etc. Cornwall cottages had left us some milk, biscuits and toilet rolls which was nice. Bathroom and bedrooms were very clean, with crisp white bed linen. The negative however which has been mentioned in previous reviews, was the bed, we felt we were sleeping on the side of a hill and the first few nights were spent trying not to roll out the bed! The village is small and peaceful with a couple of shops. We did have a tesco shop delivered but also made use of the local shop which sold everything! A few art galleries and a gift shop. Had a few pints in the plume of feathers, a bustling busy type of pub which was very nice and friendly and also the harbour club which was quiet, staff very friendly, with comfy chairs and a lovely terrace looking out to sea, both dog friendly. We also visited the beach, a short walk along the coast (dog friendly) and ate at the hidden hut which was scrumptious. Also visited with our dogs, the gardens of heligan (fantastic), st mawes (ate in the st mawes) hotel, st Anthony lighthouse and coastal walks, the church at st just on the rose land with sub-tropical gardens, Truro shops via the King Harry ferry. Overall we had a fab holiday visiting a part of Cornwall we had never been to before and shorelines was a lovely cottage in an excellent position to base ourselves. A memorable holiday! Thank you Shorelines.

Lovely and spacious in great location

We had a lovely stay in portscatho. Wonderful cottage, well equipped and fantastic location. Much more spacious than we imagined and decorated/furnished to a high standard. Just 2 minor issues that prevented an excellent review across the board: sofa is small, very low and quite uncomfortable. Double bed needs new mattress (or a new king size bed would be better!). Neither of these things spoiled the holiday, but cottage was 9/10 for us instead of 10/10 because of these 2 things. All that said, we're planning to return next year :)

lovely cottage

great place to stay, local cafe and shops excellent and nearby beaches great for our dog. Cottage is excellent, the allocated parking space is tight as mentioned on other reviews but my Nissan Qashqai fitted in fine. Only minor complaints were the lack of any logs to use in the log burner when we arrived. We got there quite late and the shops locallly were shut so were unable to buy any and could not use it on the first night. Also we were there at Xmas so would have been nice for the house to have been decorated with a tree etc...it does not need to resemble Oxford Street lights but just a little tree with a simple row of lights would have been nice.

Nice cottage in a good location close to the sea

This is a very nice cottage set in the middle of the village a few metres from the sea. The cottage is kept in a good condition with all the facilities you would need. However, the parking is very tight at the rear of the property so we parked in a nearby road which was fine in December but probably difficult in summer. There is a shop and butcher a few doors away catering for most needs. We did not use the pub opposite which seemed to be mainly for drinking as the menu was quite limited. Excellent fish and chip van which visits the village on Friday evenings. Overall, a very enjoyable stay in a comfortable cottage.

Shorelines, a lovely modernised comfortable cottage in a beautiful fishing village

We were delighted when we arrived at Shorelines. It was very comfortable,tastefully decorated and spotless. On the worktop was a welcoming postcard with a contact number, There was a packet of shortbread biscuits, teabags and milk in the fridge...all greatfully accepted after our long journey down to cornwall. Parking of the car at the back of the property was very tight, but managed without too much difficulty. To be fair we were expecting this as it was stated in the cottage details that parking was tight. My car is a Vauxhall Meriva. Portscatho is a lovely village, a good base to explore the many picturesque coves and creeks.

Perfect in every way

Stayed at Shorelines in September and couldn't have wished for a better cottage. Location was perfect, right in the heart of the village. The cottage itself was beautiful, immaculate, spacious and charming. Everything we needed had been provided. DA(C)cor and furnishings were first class. Beds very comfortable, sofa a little on the small side, everything you needed and more in the kitchen. Loved the window seats where you could watch the world go by. Surprisingly quiet, little traffic and very well behaved seagulls. Due to weather not being particularly bright didn't get to sit in garden but very quaint and gated so the dog was secured. Close to pub, take away pizza, pastries and coffee shack and local shop. Parking space at back of cottage was challenging, suitable for small or average car. Plenty of parking elsewhere in the village. Locals very friendly. Very relaxing, enjoyable stay, would highly recommend.

Beautiful and spacious cottage in a Perfect location

This is very spacious for a 2 bed holiday property. Tastefully decorated and well equipped and perfectly positioned in the village for the beach. We found the parking to be an excellent addition, we have stayed in a few properties in Portscatho before and liked that we didn't have to worry about our car for the week. We did feel the cottage would benefit from having curtains up at the rear french doors so that the lounge/dining area was completely private at night. The sofa was comfortable but a little on the small side for a couple to spend any length of time watching the TV. Our 2 year old loved the sunroom/conservatory and used it as a playroom/craft area as the table was a perfect height for her. Would definitely stay again and recommend to others.

A fantastic cottage

The cottage had everything you could need for a super holiday. The location is superb, 1 minute from a lovely beach, a great pub across the lane, a shop that stocks EVERYTHING! Coastal walks.

Lovely, clean and equipped cottage in a fantastic location

Family of 4 + dog really enjoyed Shorelines. It was beautifully clean on arrival and contained everything we needed. The location is fabulous - a stones throw fro the harbour beach and the coastal paths. two small gripes: there could have been more crockery and cutlery - 4 of each meant we either had to put the dishwasher on after every meal, or wash up after every meal (which negates the purpose of providing a dishwasher). the lack of crockery/cutlery suprised us because all other kitchen stuff - pans, cooking utensils etc etc were in very rich supply! There was no storage space for dry food in the kitchen - all the available cupboard space was taken up with kitchen equipment. I'm not sure what the solution is here. In a self catering cottage you need somewhere to put your food! That said, neither of these things spoiled our holiday in any way.

Could do with some info sheets in the property.

Yes we liked the property and the location.The settee is too small and the tv is minute.There is no excuse for these faults in 2016. We would come again but the parking space is awful for a big car.We thought the fridge freezer should have been in the kitchen (pantry cupboard) because bending down to use the integrated one is too difficult for "older" people (us).
