Great view, clean and comfortable. Short walk to beach, shop and pub, plus en route to Porthcurnick beach too. A really great place to stay.
A secluded property set in pretty gardens, surrounded by fields, often filled with lambs and with sea views from all the upstair rooms. An ideal boot room with toilet and shower room to house all your walking gear and coats, leaving you to live in in uncluttered cosy cottage complete with AGA in the Kitchen. It always feels like home to us and the best place for us to unwind completely and enjoy some wonderful coastal walks straight from the Cottage!
Another perfect stay at Chy Mor . This beautiful cottage right next to beach has amazing views across the bay ,the property is stunning , beautifully decorated and with very recent improvements 2 more shower rooms everything is quality.its location in pretty st mawes makes it the perfect holiday cottage .
A cosy place to stay, at the centre of the village with views across the rooftops to the harbour. We shall return.
Last minute thing, ....service and help by Portscatho Holidays in answering a question was very prompt and helpful.. As a base for Roseland area ....excellent and views far reaching on a sunny day. The cottage / new bungalow first class, a real treat. A great place to stay and explore from.
This is a wonderful location with spectacular views over St Mawes harbour. Gorgeous property with plenty of space. Highly recommended.
We had a very enjoyable stay at McKenzie in Portscatho. The property was in a great location, comfortable and had everything we needed.
We stayed there four years ago but the new owners have made a better job of everything. We were bewildered by the tv. It was blurred sometimes even on HD. The sound was not good either.
We love St Mawes and have stayed with our son, daughter-in-law and five year old grand daughter in Boswedden for the last three years. The house is in a.very quiet position overlooking the water. Walking into the village is easy. The house is spacious, great for mixed ages and has a very pretty garden. I felt this year that the rooms and balcony would benefit from a deep clean, for example to remove cobwebs and crumbs from under the rug. There is a good selection of games and jigsaws but several were incomplete or broken. However these are only minor niggles and I would definitely reco...more
After ordering online Waitrose groceries for the holiday week, and just checking the travel route the evening before departure realised that Porthcatho holidays had supplied the wrong postcode(entirely wrong) ..we would have arrived in veryan instead of st mawes ..alot of hassle getting shopping redirected and the poor delivery man actually went to veryan despite having let Truro Waitrose know in reasonable time the mistake ....all of that aside lamorran lodge is a very pleasant bungalow ..bit of a hike into st mawes centre,but that has it's pluses too..next to the beautiful lamorran gardens...more
We enjoyed our visit with long walks and watching the seabird variety from the living room. We especially enjoyed the meals at local pubs and talking with local residents. The Seahouse is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy Cornwall.
Beautiful property. Very well equipped. There are a lot of steps going up to the property so not ideal for those with mobility issues. Spectacular views. A lovely house to visit.
Although providing no real views the property is central and easily accessible. It is very well presented, modern, comfortable and fully equipped. It is a flat and is susceptible to noise from adjoining properties. This is not a major issue assuming other occupants are respectful. The only real improvement I would recommend is in line with previous reviews - please stretch to a bigger TV! The present one is just silly - bearing in mind there is no view or outside space in the evening. Still very good value!
This is a house that we have stayed in a number of times before, albeit the last time was about 5 years ago. We were very pleased to see it has been kept in excellent condition. It is in a good location with excellent sea views and is well equipped and only lacked a whisk for our needs. My only slightly negative comment was that the ensuite shower did not look like it had been properly cleaned for quite some time, ie months if not years and the towels smelt like they had not been washed between lettings. Otherwise everything was excellent and we would certainly stay again if we wanted a ba...more
Just back from a fabulous week at Pengerein, the property is well equipped with a lovely sitting room which had a very calm feel to it and amazing sea views. It is only a ten minute walk to the wonderful Porthcurnick beach with it's beautiful clear water and safe bathing. It is one of the few occasions on holiday that we have not felt it necessary to drive off to other places as Portscatho has a lot to offer as far as eating places and the position of Pengerein could not be better. We hope to return to the same cottage soon
Pennygillam is spacious, really well furnished, despite being slightly dated, well equipped and very comfortable. Aga takes a bit of getting used to for cooking but meant the house was always warm and welcoming on our return despite some unseasonably poor weather. Some might miss the lack of a microwave though. St Mawes is a delight as is the rest of the Roseland. The house is a steep but short climb up from the waterfront, shops, pubs etc but not a problem so far as we were concerned. That’s just the price you pay for such a wonderful location and the accompanying views.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was very spacious, comfortable and spotlessly clean. The house was very well equipped in the kitchen, and it provided a full utility room. We would definitely stay again.
We loved the house. It was delightful with lots of character. We thought the photos in the brochure hardly did it justice.The position and the views were superb. The house looked well looked after and was very well equipped with lots of thoughtful touches. The agency were extremely efficient and made everything very easy for us. Everyone was very friendly. Down sides? None really, although I can see if you came with a car parking might be tricky. We came on public transport which worked out fine. Shops, eating places, ferries, bus all very handy. The hot water system is a bit noisy in th...more
We absolutely love staying at The Hermitage in St Mawes it’s a beautiful cottage located right by the sea in an enviable position towards the top of the village. The cottage has a gorgeous little front garden where you can sit out overlooking gorgeous St Mawes bay and the sailing boats bobbing along , it is totally relaxing and is really quirky equipped with everything you need to make your stay as comfortable as possible
Great location, spacious property with stunning views across to St Anthony and Falmouth. Great service from Portscatho Holidays
The tv was not good.Too small and no sub titles .Most houses we have used fail in this matter.People are used to big screens nowadays days.Sub titles are relevant for the hard of hearing,a large number over 55. One of our party could not use the upper terrace,no hand rail.
Alovely property, fully provided. The office staff readily available and very helpful.The village has all necessary facilitiess
Perfect for exploring the Roseland. Admittedly no views but ideal for hoping on the foot ferry to Falmouth, the Place ferry, mooching around the village, or exploring further. 2 bedrooms, well equipped kitchen and cosy sitting room. Outside area could do with a bit of a refresh but inside is everything you need for a bit of R&R in the Roseland! Comfortable, clean, wifi, washing machine and dryer. You can drop off your stuff and park in the village car park which is literally two mins away.
We have been coming to St.Mawes for many years and still like as much as ever.It helps that your team on the key are so helpful and full of local knowledge. Many thanks,
Good accomadation, excellent position for getting around this part of Cornwall. Lots to do in this area. Would recommend
We have stayed here many times and hopefully will continue to do so in the future. It’s a very special place.
Portscatho Holidays were as ever very efficient in processing our booking, and providing access details prior to arrival. The cottage was lovely, with a fabulous view from the balcony, and it was possible to walk down easily to the sea for a swim. Accommodation was comfortable, facilities good, and it is a lovely quiet village. The cafe and toilets were adjacent. A wonderful Ho,I day, thank you.
We stayed for one week in late September 2018. The property was well maintained and the kitchen was well stocked with cooking utensils, everything you would need. Instructions booklets very helpful. Only one improvement suggested would be for the use of canvas bags for recycling, as the recycling facilities in St Mawes car park are limited in what you can recycle, when we know through Cornwall council you can recycle more. This is having stayed in St Mawes before and we recycled a lot more.
Had a lovely time and would definitely recommend and stay there again. A beautiful house.. in beautiful St. Mawes.
We had a wonderful week staying at Castle cottage in St Mawes. As soon as we got inside the cottage we felt relaxed and chilled and very happy to be back in our favourite place! The cottage is always clean and tidy and the beds are very comfortable. Everything is close by, the local supermarket, the post office, the pubs and restaurants. The views of the harbour from Castle Cottage cannot be beaten. We could happily sit all day looking out of the window watching the world go by - no two days are ever the same in St Mawes!
This is a beautiful cottage with amazing views in the heart of the village. We were very comfortable there - the cottage is beautifully furnished. Although the terrace above was stunning, the steps up to the terrace need fixing - one step was loose and one was broken, which made them a bit treacherous. Other than that it was great and definitely to be recommended.
The apartment was very well presented. It had all the essentials to make our stay very enjoyable, especially when we decided to eat in.
A thoroughly enjoyable stay. Clean, comfortable and very well equipped. Portscatho Holidays were very helpful and quick in responding to our questions.
Charlies is great for a stay in St Mawes. It is spacious with good outdoor areas and 2 parking places. It also has fantastic views down across the harbour. The biggest let down could be easily sorted - curtains! The two twin bedrooms have roof skylights with no covering at all. The back twin bedroom also has a row of windows with no curtains, and the middle twin room has a "shade" that is practically see through. (The same with the bathroom - can the neighbours see in when the lights are on?) The website says there are no "blackout blinds" but it would be more accurate to say that t...more
We had a lovely stay and the location is wonderful right opposite Tavern beach. The house is very comfortable albeit a bit dated now.
Excellent location and views. A little tired in some areas but this didn’t stop us enjoying our stay.
Well equipped and comfortable cottage on the square in the lovely village of Portscatho. The cottage has everything you could wish for and whilst it may not be the ultra-modern finish that some expect, it is very welcoming and spotlessly clean. The parking space provided was very handy as it can get quite busy in the square. As the cottage is dog friendly, worth noting that dogs are banned from the beaches in the village itself but the beautiful dog-friendly Porthcurnick beach is only a 10 min walk on the coast path. We loved our stay here and would definitely recommend the cottage.
We had a lovey holiday at Tyg Wyn and there are some fantastic aspects to the house including the beautiful bathrooms, comfortable bedrooms and big kitchen. However, we struggled to find enough sensible sized glasses, plates that weren't chipped or plastic, and decent mugs. This is so easy to get right with a trip to Ikea and some fresh glasses etc but felt that the collection of garage sherry glasses, some disposable plastic ones and a couple of pint glasses from the local pub let the place down a bit. We loved the homely feel to the place with nice furniture, paintings on the walls, jigsaws...more
A very relaxing week in a great location. The cottage is well equipped with a good layout for a family. The only problem is going up and down the stairs, we all knocked our heads on several occasions. Would strongly suggest you put a big warning to duck when going up and down the stairs to avoid serious injury.
Our third visit to this lovely location. The flat is ideally placed for the amenities of Portscatho and cliff/beach walks. Wonderful sea view from the living room. Very dog friendly. We shall be back hopefully. Such a relaxing and peaceful place to be.
We loved our stay, the house was clean and functional. If I had to pick holes the kitchen was not fully equipped to cater for the size of house, small cooker and cutlery and crockery storage all in the dining room was a pain. There were no complematry condiments. Ie not salt and pepper etc. If you wanted to do any sort of cooking you had to start from scratch.. Wet room downstairs functional but no power to the shower, you were hardly wet.. Overall a great stay, great location, clean tidy and functional.
Lovely well loved house. Spotlessly clean. Lots of space. Nicely furnished. Great views. Showers take a bit of working out and garden not wholly suitable for an escape artist dog but nothing that can't be worked around.
This is the third time we have stayed here with our dogs. View is magnificent and everything you need is in the flat. Enjoyed our stay yet again and had marvellous weather.
We had a lovely week staying in Buckingham cottage and it provided an excellent base for our week in Cornwall. Unfortunately the week started off stormy and freezing temperatures and the house's heating system couldn't cope. The house has many drafts and we had to request extra heating. Portscatho holidays were very helpful and attentive. The upstairs bedrooms are lovely with fantastic views. The bathroom is very spacious and clean. The downstairs open plan room is smaller than the pictures portray and a little cluttered for four people.
We all really enjoyed our stay at Medlar Cottage. Great location, clean and had everything we needed for our stay. Property needed a bit of TLC.
Hi my friends and I really enjoyed our time at Powder Cottage, it is set in a beautiful village in wonderful countryside. The cottage is a typical and very beautiful Cornish cottage, it was very well appointed, but the only issues had were: A loose step in the garden, but I believe this has now been rectified. Garden chairs were dirty apart from 2 of the chairs with bird faeces and were green where they had presumably been left outside over winter. I would have expected they would have been scrubbed before the summer season. There is a flight of decking steps down to the property, I noticed...more
The barbecue was so discusting we had to buy our own at he cost of £15.00 the grill was full of fat looked like it had never been cleaned no one would eat food cooked on it, so we looked at how clean plates, cups , cutlery, knife,saucepans, frying pans and everyday use one egg cup had dried in egg yolk. We had to wash everything before using and keep separate. The wardrobe in the bedrooms had photos of the owner, old tins of food and tins of paint (would you like to hang your clothes there) the bathroom was old and tiered and felt unclean . Overall would never stay there again
The property was ideal for us being close to shops, pubs etc and with a readily accessible parking space. Views from the house were better than expected. Photo of the terrace area doesn't do it justice. Minor quibbles were the lack of additional rubbish bags, kitchen and toilet rolls. The main bedroom feels slightly cramped with an unnecessary wash basin and chair. Minor points though as we had a lovely time and were very pleased overall and we have already recommended the house.
We had a great week in Spry's cottage. The cottage is centrally located, ideal for beach, shops etc. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything one could need during a week in St Mawes. The three bedrooms were all a good size, with sufficient storage. We were fortunate to have lovely weather, and the garden was great for sitting out in, to catch the evening sun. I wouldn't describe the cottage as smart, but it was perfect for a family and dog!
We enjoyed our stay at Lan-y-mor, & felt comfortable there. Bathroom,Ensuite,Kitchen was v.good. although the Bathroom needs re-decorating, particularly the paint work. It seems this part of the house has been updated recently, and the owner may be doing it in stages. The sea views are excellent. There was no cleaners left at all, i.e. toilet or hob cleaner. The hob was desperate for a clean. The oven was dirty where people had not wiped it out. The pictures need re-newing. It would be handy if the owner had an outside contractor to clean the oven every so often, even if the price we...more
