Property Location

Gerrans and its neighbouring village of Portscatho are located on the eastern coast of the Roseland Peninsula, Cornwall, overlooking the dramatic Gerrans Bay. A truly peaceful waterside village, Gerrans is a lovely place for a holiday. Portscatho was once a busy fishing harbour, but now it has become a haven for artists due to the striking light, 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 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.

To the west of Portscatho is St Mawes, 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 Britain's mildest climates due to its proximity to the Gulf Stream. The sea is at the heart of the village and has helped 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 top-rated sailing centre. Weekly club racing, village regattas, and larger events are commonplace on the bay's superb waters 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 Carrick Roads' views.

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 an exceptional experience, you will obviously need to book this one early. The Hidden Hut is 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, some excellent country pubs in all of the local villages support Cornish produce and local beers.

Tremorva - Amazing Stay
Reviewed on 20/07/2022

We have just returned from an amazing week in Portscatho staying at Tremorva. The house is extremely comfortable with all the facilities and equipment you need. Plenty of kitchen utensils, serving dishes and glasses. Having a separate utility was very useful with lots of access doors for the dogs. The garden is beautiful with a lovely sunny slabbed eating area which caught the sun in the morning and evening. It was great having a sea view whilst we sipped our evening G&T. Having 2 bathrooms and 3 toilets is very useful and also the porch was great for storing beach stuff and walking boots. Also having space for 1 car on-drive parking was great. The position is ideal, being able to walk to 2 beaches, the pub and restaurant, local store and coastal path. We sampled the fish and chips from the van that comes on Fridays and they were great. All in all, we had a lovely stay and will be booking up for next year.

Lovely stay in pretty cottage in great location
Reviewed on 10/10/2021

Had a lovely break in Gerrans/Portscatho. Cottage was well placed, comfy with good facilities. Great to have en-suite in addition to downstairs bathroom. Pleasant garden with sunny patio, great for alfresco dining. Off road parking, close proximity to footpaths and just a short stroll to Portscatho village centre. Roseland Peninsula pretty and no too busy.

Honestly we felt we fell on our feet when we found this at the last minute. It is honestly a great cottage, very well equipped and thought out. Great garden, comfy bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. It was easy to find, easy to gain entry and the off street parking was very useful. I would thoroughly recommend it!

good straightforward house
Reviewed on 21/07/2021

the house was good and location pretty good, but the quality of the interior (especially carpet in sitting room + duvets in main bedroom) was poor. No door on ensuite bathroom in main bedroom either . and for AGBP1500/week - this was expensive, although perhaps Covid had pushed the price up. Still

Woudl be happy to stay here again.
Reviewed on 14/07/2021

Comfortable, and generally clean (carpet was a bit marked but that did not matter to us as long as we didn't get the blame!). Just what we were looking for, though prices seem to have gone up generally this year. Location great for us as we needed to be in this specific area for sailing on the Percuil river. Short walk to pubs, waterside at Portscatho and coastal path. Can do a lot of local exploring without having to use the car. Good garden furniture. A dryer would be helpful for anybody staying more than a week or doing a lot of washing or watersports. Would be very happy to stay here again. Very straightforward arrangements, and we had no problem with anything during the stay.
