This pretty bijou cottage in the heart of the delightful harbour village of Portscatho, just off the village square, sits opposite the Plume of Feathers pub and about a minute's walk from Tatums Beach. The coastal path passes just a few yards from your door, enticing you to wander along the enchanting coastline and enjoy the dramatic seascape of Gerrans Bay that has inspired generations of artists. Rise early, sneak down to the harbour and experience one of Cornwall's beautiful sunrises or take a gentle lunchtime stroll along to enjoy a delicious alfresco meal overlooking Porthcurnick Beach at the famous Hidden Hut. Hire a kayak and explore the serenity of the upper reaches of the Percuil River on a rising tide. How about finishing the day with a Michelin star meal at nearby Driftwood Hotel? Once you stay in this tiny piece of paradise on the Roseland Peninsula, you will never want to leave!

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.
