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 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. 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.

Very comfortable cottage in Gerrans

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Turnpike Cottage. We were greeted by complimentary wine and biscuits and further inspection showed milk,tea, coffee and lots of condiments had also been provided in the very well equipped kitchen. We also enjoyed the benefits of luxurious bedding and towels and hand wash on every basin.The cottage had been cleaned to a very high standard and we found the Welcome manual very informative. This is a large cottage and every age group has been catered for with maps, books, dvds and games.Gerrans and Portscatho are well provided with amenities and seem to be a thriving village community. The cottage is well placed for touring the Roseland and further afield but it is also great for staying in and relaxing. The parking space was amply big enough for our 4x4, a bit of a luxury in Cornwall. Our dog enjoyed his races around Porthcurnick beach and we were pleased to find lots of dog friendly eating places nearby. We hope to return to this lovely cottage very soon

A fabulous Cornish holiday

My family had a wonderful week in Turnpike Cottage, the cottage has a great selection of books and games for rainy days and the games room was stocked perfectly for days at the beach. The beds are lovely and comfy and the large kitchen was great for enjoying a meal and a bottle of wine with the family. The cottage is ideally situated for the local beaches and an evening stroll around St Mawes harbour is only a 10 minute drive away.

June in Turnpike Cottage

Loved this place. It was well laid out and fully equipped with loads of extras which you might need at some point in your stay. It caters for us oldies as it is a nice quiet location and kids as its full of stuff for them to play with on rainy days. Really loved the décor and great facilities for the six of us who stayed. The kitchen was large and well arranged and the two living rooms added an extra space so you had room to breathe as well as think. Absolutely loved it.
