We loved our stay in Sloop. The property was clean and comfortable. Light and spacious. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed. The beds were comfortable. The view was stunning and just a short walk to the beach. It was perfect!! We will definitely book it again.
Bungalow was lovely everything you need in kitchen very clean and cosy couldn't fault anything enclosed garden for dogs The garden was lovely with its palms and trees. Lamorran Gardens were beautiful. The weather was perfect for two weeks. Perfect holiday
We have stayed in many properties in the village over the 27 years that we have been holidaying in Portscatho and this was by far the best accommodation. It has been tastefully modernised and decorated with an extremely well equipped Neptune kitchen, comfortable beds and has stunning views over Gerrans bay. Plus, the property has a parking space; a rare luxury in Portscatho! We would love to stay in McKenzie again.
Harbour View is situated right in the centre of St Mawes but well away from the hustle and bustle. The views from the property are utterly stunning and I doubt you could find better of the harbour. We spent many any evening eating on the balcony watching the world go by. The property is beautifully decorated: we cooked most evenings and found the kitchen to be extremely well equipped. We had a fabulous stay and will definitely be back!
I have been visiting St Mawes for the last 50 years, as a child and now with my own family, my wife and three children. The first steps into Pennygillam were a sheer joy, expectations superceded and charm personified. We have previously stayed at other places which were all enjoyed but nothing truly had given us the wonderful feel that we all felt with this property. It has charm and great ambience combined with all the amenities and space to ensure a family could only be thoroughly content. The kitchen and sitting room were beautifully laid out and furnished with great attention to detail....more
This is an excellent property in a great location close to the beach and local pub and shop. The house was very clean and decorated to a high standard. It was a lovely place to spend 2 weeks. The area is beautiful and extremely relaxing, I will definitely be back Thanks to all
Everything was very clean and well laid out. Everything was catered for and loved the welcome gift of milk, tea, biscuits and coffee. A lovely surprise. All places we visited were easily accessible and well placed for the beaches, despite not being right on the coast.
Superb views, comfortable and well-equipped house, excellent shops and eateries close at hand, plus walking and swimming. A prompt and effective response to the collapsing bed problem couldn’t have been quicker. Couldn’t have suited our needs as painters and writers more. Two points - windows in double bedroom difficult to open and close, and is there a means of raising the blind downstairs except by hand rolling? If so we missed it!
A lovely cottage, nicely presented and well equipped - and what a view! A great location in beautiful St Mawes; we will definitely return to The Hermitage.
Great place and lovely location. Only one gripe, the WIFI is awful and should be mentioned on the details, were in part on holiday and also on business so WIFI was essential, to have the signal extended from across the road seems strange and given the cost of the property to rent we were not happy with the signal. A caretaker came out but in fairness there was nothing they could do but grateful for the quick response. I feel that WIFI is a basic requirement and should be addressed or just stated on the details. Other than that we had a lovely stay. Many thanks Mark
We have had a great holiday at Treveasey. The weather was perfect and the location dreamy...haven't been to Cornwall for a long time and never to this area so it turned out to be a wonderful surprise. The apartment is well equipped, well looked after and comfortable. The garden has views out to the sea on one side and a wooded area on the other with strategically place seating. Lots of local walking possibilities, the coastal footpath is on the doorstep, great beaches to visit, and good food ...The Hidden Hut and new pizza place at Portscatho [Courgette, lemon and Feta!!!]
Chymor continues to delight us each year with it's splendid location on the sea front and wonderful views across the bay. The house is hard to fault and provides everything needed for a comfortable and stylish stay. We would have preferred the rear garden grass to have been cut before our arrival but the rental team were quick to response to our request. The only elements which we would improve are: to have a larger mirror in the main bedroom; to find a way if having a larger hand basin in the shower room.
The Studio is brilliantly located near the quay with easy access to St Mawes. Very well equipped and great view. Would definitely come back.
We were placed in this property because of problems with Pencuil but were pleasantly surprised. We found the property itself first class but the garden needs attention. It would also benefit by having some loungers for outside. Some sort of drying facility would also have been useful. We thoroughly enjoyed this property and would have liked to book it for September but on enquiring found the price to be extortionate and would not pay that price for the property. The staff who dealt with us were excellent. Thank you for turning a disaster into a two centre holiday.
We have stayed at Scath for 4 years, and have enjoyed every minute. The sea views are fantastic, the apartment is situated right on the coastal path, and is just a short walk from the quiet port of Portscatho. There are basic facilities in Portscatho, shops, pubs, cafes, beaches, art galleries, etc, but everything is on a small, unobtrusive scale. The apartment has basic, clean, facilities, and a conservatory overlooking the sea, which is useful on wet or windy days. There is also a front garden overlooking the sea, and parking at the rear. In our opinion, The Roseland is the best part of Co...more
A very nicely decorated and apportioned apartment, ideally situated in St Mawes, particularly if you do not like the hills! The only negative is that the entrance to the en-suite shower is very snug.
This beautiful house is Complete luxury , the beds as extremely comfortable and all rooms provide a peaceful atmosphere . My family loved its big open rooms for enetertaining and it had an amazing range to cook on. The terrace is divine to sit out in the sun and enjoy a long lazy lunch . The views are stunning and it only take fives mins to walk down to the beach, It’s a magical find !
It is 22 years since we had our honey moon in Portloe. Since our 3 children have never had a holiday in Cornwall we wanted to introduce them to the beautiful Roseland Peninsula. The house is lovely with great views out on to the estuary and surrounding coast, fantastic for boat watching, whilst the downstairs master bedroom is very spacious. The upstairs living area is great for a family of 5, we enjoyed playing games on the dinning table. The Kitchen is very well equipped. St Mawes is a beautiful place, a genteel busyness in the day and very quite at night. The only trips out were either on f...more
Moorings is a beautifully located elegant house. It is extremely well equipped, very comfortable and has a gorgeous garden. The views from the house and garden are breathtaking. A wonderful place for a relaxing, peaceful holiday. St Mawes village and harbour are a short, scenic walk away.
WE HAVE STAYED AT THIS PROPERTY SEVERAL TIMES IN THE PAST AND ALWAYS APPRECIATE ITS COMFORT AND LOCATION.
A fantastic cosy stay in a great location. We loved St Mawes and the surrounding areas. Plenty to do. Would love to come back
A really wonderful property with excellent views. We really enjoyed our week at Tregwylan and cannot fault the property.
Pencreek is comfortable, well appointed, spacious and with an excellent view of St Mawes harbour and bay. All local facilities are close, with a good choice of eating places, and the Coop crams a lot of essential food and grocery items in a small space. It would be a good place to stay in poor weather but it's even better when the sun shines, or the full moon rises across the water.
The view and location were amazing and the house had everything we needed. Property could probably have done with a more thorough clean (edges and corners, plus cupboards etc) but on the whole was clean and tidy. We loved it!!
We have been to Puffin four times now, and we always have a wonderful time. Its situation could hardly be better, with a balcony looking out over the beach and providing ample opportunity to watch the waves and tide. It's also only a few seconds' walk to get to the village shop, pub etc in the middle of the village. The flat's kitchen, dining and living area is bright and airy; the bedrooms are set back and a bit darker and damper but this is inevitable in this kind of property. Overall it's a wonderful place to spend time, simply but comfortably outfitted, and we look forward to returning aga...more
Cannot recommend this house enough following our stay. If it’s location and views aren’t enough then the extent of its facilities has to be. A great house for a large family or group of friends. Big sitting, dining kitchen and lounge area to either spread out or come together. The view from the lounge is amazing and changes throughout the day as the light moves around St Mawes we never got bored of sitting and watching everything going on. St Mawes is one of the most scenic places in Cornwall and the house plus the large window in the lounge gives you the best view of this spot. Near to centre...more
The Aloft was a very comfortable place to stay , views out to sea from all the rooms . great place to unwind .
Really enjoyed our week’s stay at Little House. Property was really comfortable, enabled the three of us to spread ourselves out. A porch for all the swimming. Choice of tables or eating at - outside, in the conservatory and in the living room. Kitchen extremely well equipped, including good sharp knives. Location in the village was perfect - lovely views, close to the store to get milk and Cornish pastries and close to the beach. Although surrounded by other properties, the location is quiet and peaceful.
We have stayed at Pengerein several times and it has always been really enjoyable. We like walking so its location is ideal for the cost path and St Anthonys Head. You can walk to Place ferry for St Mawes and then on to Falmouth. Usually a fish and chip van on one day just up the road (not this year} and there is also a pizza van on Wednesday which is excellent. Will be booking again.
We had a wonderful week at Trevellas; weather fabulous, views spectacular, accommodation comfortable but some things need upgrading eg curtains very high spec. but several need re-hanging, bathroom needs attention ( tiles, bath panel, wall cabinet show damage/ wear), sofas in sitting room past their best, general repaint needed inside, outside furniture had a lot of lichen growth compared to adjacent properties which didn't put me off ( as a botanist) but could deter others. Good collection of books, games etc. and common interest in literature, sailing, maps, photography, made me feel very ...more
Information on house bit misleading, Short flight of step! Yes from back main rd but from parking space and rs to beaches it's 50 steps. Advertising a tumble dryer/washer dryer but there isn't one. Few other problems which I'll email about.
Great property I would definitely stay here again. Sail Loft is a lovely, spacious and comfortable property with great outdoor space. The living room furnishings are a little tired but very comfy. The view from the deck is spectacular. The location is amazing and we had a wonderful week making the most of all the different ferries and the beautiful countryside. Thanks!
We've rented Midships several times and always enjoy our stay there. It has a wonderful view and because the downstairs is all one big room you can look out at it all the time. The bedrooms are all a reasonable size and the bathroom/shower are very nice. It is particularly helpful having the space out the back for soggy wetsuits etc. We've already booked again for next year!
Stay here you won't be disappointed, pub up the hill, great dog walks. This is a huge property, kitchen has everything you will need. Very quiet, lovey property.
Thank you we had a wonderful week in Tavern house - very spacious and plenty of hot water for us all. Such a beautiful location.
A very nice property but most of the window blinds and carpets needed replacing along with the settee in the lounge. Beautiful location and amply provided with crockery, utensils and everything else. It is spacious and has lots of storage making it a very comfortable property to stay in. Bedding and towels were all good quality and 2 bathrooms and a downstairs toilet is always good.
We really loved staying in Castle Cottage. The beds are very comfy and lovely bathrooms . The living kitchen area has been done really well and a pleasure to sit in over looking the harbour . We would definately stay again. It can be a bit noisy late at night and first thing for deliveries but we do keep windows open so closing them does help. It wouldn’t stop us staying in this lovely well kept home again
We have stayed at Pencuil for many years now and keep coming back as the house is so comfortable and location excellent for getting to the village and other villages around. The view from the lounge and master bedroom is stunning and we have spent many an hour just sitting watching the boats. This is the perfect place if you just want to relax as it caters for all needs.
First impression was OMG it's so small. But once you have unpacked it is a perfect little bolt hole to enjoy the surroundings. But for a weeks holiday it's great. Location is superb so peaceful only birds and the stream can be heard, yet only a few minutes walk to the beach. Perfect. Ideal as a base for walking on the coastal path or touring around Cornwall. We had a lovely week & the weather was kind as well. Will definitely be returning again in the future.
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
Good location and great views from front rooms and sunny decking. Could address a few of the minor issues detailed in the visitor book. Garden needs tidying on a regular basis, last visit it was overgrown but cut back after giving feedback to Porthscatho holidays. Ideal property for dog owners. Porthscatho Cottages are always great to deal with and respond immediately to any issues.
I love coming back to this cosy property, it is like home from home. Being able to wake-up to the sea views day after day is heaven. It is in a good location and provides a peaceful haven if you want to get away from the crowds with just enough amenities close to hand.
We have stayed at this apartment before so this is a return visit. It is a small apartment especially the bedroom although adequate for two people. The tv is small. the bedroom faces on to the road and the footpath runs immediately in front of the bedroom window (and also the bathroom window). The back faces a courtyard which also contains several other apartments. You are on the beach within seconds via either a flight of steps or out of the front door and round by the road. It is situated next to the Social Club and although this is not normally a problem and indeed some would regard it as a...more
Good location the lodge had everything you need for a self catering holiday it was in a great position with great views of the sea plenty of walks in the area with Portscatho with its facilities a 25 minute walk away although there is a pub in Gerrans a 15 min walk that does nice food the pool area at trewince was very nice wouldnt hesitate to recommend
It could be useful to point out the bathroom and loo /ground floor.Potentially inconvenient at night for some residents.Large sunny well-lit dining room ideal for entertaining. Charming sitting room. Bedrooms with wonderful sea views.
Mizzen Top was an excellent choice for my wife and myself. The location was superb (a few steps up the path from the street, Marine Parade, but worth it) we enjoyed having our meals at the small table by the front window with that spectacular view. The living room and kitchen are very spacious and stylish. Upstairs the main bedroom overlooks the bay, the bed is very comfortable and the decor uncluttered and appropriate for the setting. The second bedroom is to the back of the property, with 2 twin beds it would be fine for kids (or adults). The bathroom is fully tiled with a shower over the tu...more
Lovley place to stay - good location, sea view, off road parking and fab facilities. Thoroughly recommend.
We have had another wonderful holiday in Portscatho, 5 Harbour Court has been our base for several years now and the location is perfect for easy access to the beach, shops, pubs and restaurants. It provides simple but comfortable facilities and caters for all our needs with a lovely view across the bay to boot!
It’s a great location and a spacious and light house to stay in. Some improvements would include: Lawn mowed A mirror above sink in master bathroom Door between master bedroom and bathroom Shaving points in the bathrooms More towel rails- pegs weren’t adequate Soap/ toothbrush holders in bathrooms Some spare light bulbs for bedside lights Could only find 3 placemats and yet house sleeps 7
My 17th stay at Trecarol. Over that time I have seen year on year improvements. I am a regular and intend to continue in the future.
A delightful and charming cottage in a quiet location, attractively furnished and comfortable with everything needed for your stay including a large TV should the weather be poor. It is set in a secluded, attractive terraced garden with patio table and chairs but it is worth noting that the steep steps down from the lane might be tricky for the less mobile. Ruan Lanihorne is a very peaceful village at the head of the river and has a lovely church, an excellent pub, lots of good walks and is close to Pendower Beach, Portscatho and St Mawes.
This was our first visit to Sunnybanks. The house was reasonably clean and presentable. The house is walking distance to the centre of St Mawes via a very steep hill. The views from the house are quite nice. Each room had an en-suite which was very convenient but the fourth small single room being the main access point from the living room to the garden, wasn't very convenient. The set up is an upside down house which is nice for the view from the living areas. The main fridge was downstairs, but at least we had plenty of fridge space with the smaller one in the kitchen.The kitchen has a larg...more
We stayed in Poldhu in mid-August. We felt the general standard of the accommodation was OK. It’s a bit tired and could be improved by a lick of paint. The carpets are looking past their best too. Having said that, the accommodation is comfortable and the extra bathroom was a blessing with 3 teenage girls in the house. The kitchen is well-stocked, however some of the equipment is rather old and should be replaced - specifically the baking trays which are all very greasy and not nice to use. The outside space is good and it was lovely to sit on the deck and look out over he bay. The hous...more
Needs outside decking cleaned slippery when wet kitchen needs a makeover more kitchen utensil Found it a bit of a problem to cook sometimes
We really enjoyed our stay at Sea View. Excellent location very close to village centre. Well equipped kitchen & pleasant living room. TV slightly confusing but ok. Our only criticism would be that the bathroom facilities could do with updating.
The Old Diary is charming & oozes character. Having a 90 year old in our party we thought the ground floor bedroom & ensuite would be ideal. However, there are 2 deep steps between the lounge & the corridor leading to the ground floor bedroom. This was not a problem going down, but getting up the steps was more of a problem as there was nothing to hold on to. A rail of some sort would be extremely helpful. Having rented properties with Portscatho Holidays in the past we were slightly disappointed that the property wasn't up to their usual high standard of cleanliness. The kitchen bin was dirty...more
We have been staying at South Cottage for 20 years and find it a delightful choice and In an excellent position, we love staying there. The main bedroom has been tastefully decorated with pretty fabrics. However the sitting room is now due for a makeover. The curtains and carpet are the same from our first visit and the sofa, chairs, and cushions are looking distinctly tired now. We could not get the hob extractor fan to work, possibly not be able to locate the master switch. We also had to change 3 light bulbs so that may be worth checking regularly. We look forward to returning next ...more
The parking is a plus but the access to it is very tight. If you are driving anything but quite a small car I would recommend approaching by Upper Castle Road, then Newton Road , then (as per your directions) Chapel Terrace and Riviera Lane. The house is in a nice situation , close to the front (Lower Castle Road) and so a short walk to everything. Being "upside down" with bedrooms on the ground floor and the living/dining space above you get the benefit of an east west alignment with great light from dawn to dusk. There is a small terrace which also gets the sun and would be pleasant for m...more
Disappointing to say the very least. Cleanliness, basic provisionsand health and safety issues all need attention. Will Not return
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
Sun Rise was described as a family house and it was that .Well used but comfortable .Plenty of board games for all ages . we were 89 down to 5 years. the kitchen had all the basic needs ,it was a shame that we only found extra crockery in the dining room on the last day !. a short safe walk for the children to go to the safe sandy beach . Sea views from the 2 front bedrooms and the lounge down stairs . A safe enclosed back yard for the children to play in ,but that needs some loving care to tidy up the flower pots. even throwing them out would be good ! on the whole a comfortable enjo...more
Lets start with the good bit, the view that was marvellous. The kitchen needed a good clean, bread crumbs by toaster and dishwasher need a clean under the door. Kitchen well equipped. Lounge sitting uncomfortable and television not working( this was sorted out by Porthscatho Holidays). Main bedroom bed very uncomfortable. Tried sleeping in other beds in the house they were also as uncomfortable left a day early as both my husband & I need a good night sleep. Bathroom is dated and the heater in this room was not working, ( did report this) dry towels by a heater in the hall way, and when ha...more
