Another relaxing week in st mawes. We curled up in front of the fire, went for walks to the beaches and enjoyed a wonderful stay. The house was incredibly comfortable and luxurious - we will be back....
We have just spent a week in a most comfortable setting, over looking beautiful river views. Wonderful for a large family gathering in lovely St Mawes. Thank you to the owners for letting us stay in their amazing home!
We enjoyed our first visit here so much that we returned less than 4 weeks later. The cottage is lovely. The beach is glorious. The owners and the agency kind and helpful, as are all the people we encountered in the local shops and restaurants. What more could we wish for, other than sunshine of course.
We chose this property in Portscatho because we were doing some walking on the Cornish coast path and Sloop seemed an ideal place to stay - it was wonderful! It was extremely comfortable and well equipped. The coast path was below the property and the bus stop just across the road. The view was spectacular! Perfect accommodation!
Enjoyed such a lovely break at Summers View - 3 families combined for this holiday including a toddler, a ten yr old and a teenager, and thanks to this beautiful space - the luxury of an enormous kitchen, a huge living room with log fire, a warm bright conservatory AND a snooker room there were NO arguments! We all had space to skittle off to when necessary and to come back to to enjoy time together. The situation is perfect, 5 minutes (going down) or 10 minutes (coming back up) from the harbour. Would thoroughly recommend (the beds are wonderfully comfortable too)
What a wonderful house. The perfect location and wonderfully maintained and so stylish. We all enjoyed the house very much. It was Perfect. St Mawes was as always wonderful, whatever the weather. It’s so good for the soul.
Many thanks to all who made our stay so enjoyable. The Villa is wonderful and so It’s a view to die for. Karen & David
Stayed here for a long weekend to celebrate my friend's birthday and I can honestly say it is the best self catering property I have stayed in - and I've stayed in a lot! Percuil View is a bright, clean, warm, modern barn conversion which has been tastefully decorated and is generously well equipped. Furniture and beds are comfortable. Bedrooms are large and the bathroom has a huge deep bath with a separate walk in shower. The view is wonderful although the weather was dreadful and we only had one day of being able to appreciate it. Parking is right by the house so unloading is no problem. ...more
This is was our third visit to Ruan Lanihorne staying in local cottages. All have been good but we found Pedlars the most relaxing and welcoming and the level pretty garden with the tidal stream at the end was a bonus. The house seems to have been lovingly maintained with a homely interior finished to a high standard.We,and the dog,would be happy to return.
Just what we needed ... a home from home in a peaceful setting with walks from the doorstep. Great house!
This is the fourth year we have stayed at Boswedden and we wouldn’t choose anywhere else for our family break. There are six adults and two children in our family and everyone is content and happy with the arrangements. The house is comfortable, warm and well-proportioned. There are lots of games to keep the children entertained and the location is peaceful and yet within walking distance of the village. Portscatho Holidays look after us very well. Thank you!
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.
Extremely comfortable house, beds, duvets and linen all lovely. Plenty of space and bathrooms. Loved the television room on top level with full Sky package. As well as TV in lounge, so we could all watch what we wanted too. We were lucky enough to have a small TV in our bedroom too. Three different terraces to spread ourselves out on. Kitchen very well equipped. Stunning views, saw seals and Dolphins from sitting on the terrace. Boats/ships coming and going out of Falmouth. An ever moving picture!! We loved it!!!
Lovely place to stay well equipped ( apart from no microwave) .very comfortable apartment with great views
A wonderfully comfortable and clean house with every amenity needed, for our family of 5. The view from the sitting room was beautiful and it was a short walk to the quay, shops etc. Can’t wait to come back to St Mawes!
Brilliant cottage in the idyllic St Mawes for a family break away from all the chaos life throws at you. Great value for money and looks exactly as the pictures state. A stones throw from the shops and beach making it the perfect spot to grab a snack from the shop or walk along the beach. Great service and all round fabulous family holiday cottage- we will definitely book again.
This is our second visit to this house. The house is beautiful & modern and the location ideal as it has a sea view and is very close to the village pub and shop. However, there are a few problems creeping in. The house at the other end of the block had a fly problem which i fed back on (last year), and they are creeping into this house. Very upsetting if like me you dislike flies. Housekeeping didnt turn the heating on so we arrived to a very very cold house on a bitter November afternoon. The master bedroom didnt have any towels so we used the ones in the spare room, and the bat...more
Absolutely perfect accommodation for two, or parents with small children. Would be a squeeze for 4 adults but doable. Great, quiet location at the edge of the village but right on the coastal footpath with a clear sea view across the whole of Gerrans Bay. It’s an annex attached to the owners’ house, but still completely private with its own courtyard and entrances. Well equipped and maintained throughout. Have stayed in other places at Portscatho and this is definitely the best.
Everything about the cottage welcomed us - tea bags, milk, dog snacks, firewood, harbour views,etc. The low doorways were indicated and the throws over all the chairs and sofas were inviting. Disadvantages: The touch hob was a little difficult and there were no instructions for the oven. The narrow road with no parking was difficult for unloading and the hill up VERY steep.
This is our second time at Little Hill and won't be our last. The house has everything you need and the new lounge is really stylish and well thought out. Everything was clean and in good working order and the complimentary "fizz" and biscuits were a great touch - thanks very much. Perfect location and feedback from the owners really appreciated. The staff at Portscatho Holidays were really helpful and accommodating and easy to speak to. Recommended.
Parc an Bounder was an excellent holiday home .We stayed for 2 weeks in August it is very well equipped with everything you need.The property is very light and spacious.
The house is in a great location and gave us a good base for walks into the village and down to the beach. The seating area in the garden is a lovely sun trap. We loved the interior design too. Portschatho Holidays were quick to respond to problems we encountered during our stay. The only improvements we could suggest would be investing in a decent knife block for families who dine in and there wasn’t a companion set for the fireplace which will be needed in Winter.
Last minute booking which turned out to be an excellent location. Great apartment with ‘surprising’ sea views.
Spacious, clean and very well equipped. Lovely enclosed garden and central position in St Mawes.Could do with a barbecue though?
We all loved the property with is splendid reviews. I have no negative comments and thought the owners had been very thoughtful and considerate with regard to what was provided. My only wish, was that a truly sensible upright vacuum cleaner such as a Shark was provided as they scoop up dog hairs much better than a Henry. I am sure we shall be going back. Thankyou for a wonderful holiday.
Just what we wanted and expected. Everything was there. Looking forward to next visit. Very comfortable all round.
Very comfortable beds, kitchen fine, oven and stove good. Handles off or faulty of at least 2 doors Radiators not running correctly: needed to be set for 28 degrees (when temperature was clearly about 19/20) and then, of course, too hot. Top of TV cabinet dirty on arrival and only one dinner plate in the house.
After an awful journey to St Mawes, we were so pleasantly surprised by such a lovely cottage. It provided us with such space and comfort, yet giving us a homely feel. The layout of the cottage gives you the most beautiful view. On the lower floor both bedrooms open up on to a private garden, providing seating and bbq. The front again has seating and small pretty garden. The cottage was extremely well equipped for our needs . We would definitely use this cottage again on further visits to St Mawes.
great flat - lovely views and plenty of space. loved the mod cons - sonos speakers etc and was a great location. would definitely go again!
This is a lovely property in a very good position in St Mawes. It is very well equipped and the parking space is a real bonus. We would stay here again
The cottage was perfect! It was sparkling like a new pin. The beds were more comfy than at home and the linen was crisp and clean. St Mawes is stunning. We were 10 seconds from the beautiful beach. Had tea at the Idle Rocks, ate lots of crab sandwiches and bought some art to remember it all by. Frankie from Portscatho Holidays was very kind and brought us a heater on the coldest and blowiest day. The cottage was cosy and warm but it was unseasonably cold outside! see you next time Portscatho Holidays!
For a family reunion/holiday it was a very good location - my family used to live nearby. St.Mawes is very convenient - the shops are only 10 minutes away. The weather was fantastic for the week. We had no problems at all. Definitely a "recommendation".
Great location, lovely cottage oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
Lovely relaxing stay for family Xmas, fab views over the bay, nice and warm and right by the Coast path. If you forget any shopping teh village stores is amazingly well stocked as well.
This is our fourth time of staying at Seascapes. The accommodation has some negative features like not enough storage space in the kitchen and ensuite. Need hooks on the back of the bathroom and bedroom doors. Towel drying a problem. Also heavy use of fabric conditioner on the towels and bedding not good. We do love the views and always have a good holiday but feel that nothing has been improved or changed since it was built. (garlic crusher still broken)!!!!! We also had to do some cleaning in the bedrooms... dirty tops of units, drawers unclean and dusty skirting boards. We appreciate ...more
Another lovely stay in Puffin. Brilliant location. Central to village with amazing views. Comfortable accommodation and a good size as a base for a family of four.
A very challenging access to the property, especially on foot, but also by car. Parking near the property for unloading was extremely difficult and could be almost impossible during the high season. No hot water in the sink in bathroom and windows could not be opened in either the bathroom or the en-suite making it difficult for steam to escape.
Last minute booking at the end of August. There were only two of us but so glad we treated ourselves to this place that sleeps 6! Right on Tavern Beach so you can pop down on the beach with a cuppa or a bottle of wine when the tide is out or literally step out of the door and take a dip at high tide. Easy to park the car whilst you unload and only a short walk to the car park once you have parked up for the week. Master bedroom was delightful, comfortable bed and the view whilst sitting up with a cup of tea was pure bliss. Leave the windows and blinds open and you can hear the sea & see the s...more
Clearly modernised and recently updated, this is an excellent place for a pair of couples with two kids in the bunk beds. Very clean. Perhaps more Gerrans than Portscatho as it's a good downhill walk to the waterfront. A 75 yard walk from car parking to accommodation and it's a 14 step walk down to the door. A helpful porch for shoes etc... You can see the sea from the back with a 90 degree angle. We loved it here with no passing traffic and very quiet location. Warm and everything we needed. Sadly, no "kerbside" recycling so you have to cart all cardboard, cans, glass etc to the recyc...more
An excellent place for a short (1 week) winter break. A stunning location just a short walk down a footpath to a beach, within walking distance of a small village with excellent pub and easy access to fantastic clifftop walks and beaches. The Stables has all you want for a winter break.
You'll rent this property for the location: smack in the centre of St Mawe's, with a direct view onto the harbour. With the windows open there's plenty of hubbub - or noise - depending on your point of view. And the fundamentals are great, too: it's warm, with decent sized rooms including spacious kitchen/diner, modern fitted kitchen and appliances (except ancient, tiny tumble dryer). But… it feels like a property that's resting on its laurels. No problem with the kitsch touches, mirrors aplenty and that bling kitchen. Less acceptable are the broken vacuum cleaner and toilet roll holder; ver...more
Quiet and peaceful location in well equipped accommodation to explore the area. Local pub and lots of local walks also close to the coast and estuary. Loads of wildlife to see all around. Enjoyed our stay very much.
Lovely cottage with high standard of cleanliness and condition. Very well equipped. Perfect location.
Our stay at Lamorran Lodge worked out really well with our two black labradors - the driveway and garden are totally secure so there were no worries about them getting out onto the road. The accommodation was good - the only downside being that there is no view - but you can't have everything!
Excellent location looking out over St Mawes harbour very comfortable inside everything we needed lovely
We have stayed at the Moorings a number of times and have always found it very comfortable. We usually stay at Easter and New Year and love the under floor heating and real fire. The house is big enough that we don’t all get under each other’s feet if the weather is terrible. The house is in a great position and we love having the garden in the warmer weather. Highly recommend
Excellent location, near shop,butcher, post office, club, pub, taverna, cafeteria and beach. No parking though.
See above - really not into writing this stuff but if this is the only way to switch off the pestering emails so be it!
We have stayed at this property almost every year for the past 10 years. So we know both it and Porthscatho Holidays very well. The property is very good value for money (say compared to National Trust Holiday Cottages) and is in a handy location for a lovely beach and excellent shop and pub. The decor and fittings of the cottage are attractive and we have found Porthscatho Holidays to be excellent and very efficient. At the moment we hope to book this cottage again next year. However last year we reported to Porthscatho Holidays, a faulty lock on a patio door in the cottage which did not ...more
All good & the house suited our needs, was warm & comfortable. I know that we are warned tehre are no blinds in some bedrooms, nt a problem at this time of year but would put us off later in the year. I also think that 4:3 ratio TV is rather an antique. Regards, Will
Powder cottage is a lovely cosy warm cottage. It is so peaceful with great walks for our puppy.. there was tea coffee and biscuits for our arrival. The kitchen is so well equipped you don’t need to take Much with you. We had a Tesco delivery for when we arrived and we found an excellent curry house on Just Eat that delivers to the cottage. The only issue was the outside light wasn’t working so it was very dark coming down the steps
Fantastic location. I always stay right on the front and just love being able to walk straight out of the front door and over to the beach. Having kids means they are able to go straight out to the beach so superb location. I've been coming to St Mawes for years so conscious that Tavern Hse may recently have been let. All I would say is that the size is great but it is rather dated in part. The kitchen and dining room particularly. Not much work space in the kitchen. The upstairs bathroom is huge but again very dated. That's our only grumble really. Plenty of space for all 7 of us. It wouldn't...more
The property is in an ideal location overlooking the bay and out to the Carrick Roads. The decoration was rather "eclectic", but interesting and well executed. The only downside for us was it's being spread over three floors; it was a very long walk from the kitchen to the lounge! Not good for arthritic knees! A lovely cottage for a family or couple wanting to be close to the village and all it has to offer.
Just had a week in St Mawes and found this cottage perfect for our needs. We loved the upside down layout with a great view out to sea, you can watch all the boats coming and going. It was very comfortable too and in particular the king sized bed.
This is our 3rd visit to Rosemary Cottage enjoying lovely weather. We found it all very clean and tidy, and comfortable re equipment could do with another 2 medium saucepans when cooking a meal, and some glasses for water as their are not enough for 6 along with long handled brush,aa rotary line for drying any washing would be useful otherwise,we enjoyed our stay and will be back next year
Our 12th stay in Portscatho and 1st at Lan-Y-Mor. Location is hard to beat being just behiind the houses fronting the main square, so all the village facilities are within a 3 minute walk. Parking in Portscatho is always hard to find and some rental properties have a "reserved space on the street which usualy gets ignored, so having its own off street parking is a definite bonus. Property is generally in good order; some fittings are starting to show their age, but nothing that detracts from your holiday and everything works. The property is nicely set out on 3 levels with a good size hall t...more
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.
Couple of points of feedback Dishwasher was full of dirty plates from previous stay. Kitchen bins had not been emptied and didn't smell great The lady who works in the shop in st mawes was excellent and very helpful Thank you
A well equipped home , especially the kitchen, that was let down by standard of cleanliness. Unable to use dining room as very dusty floors and furniture. Mop provided but no bucket. Amazing views which we enjoyed from the comfort of the sitting room.
Positives: Impeccably clean Well provisioned Beautifully decorated and accessorised home from home Excellent customer service from both the cleaner and Portscatho holidays Negatives: Broken sink in the upstairs bathroom that wasn’t fixed despite being told it would be by the cleaner Fridge stopped working but a replacement was ordered and delivered within 48 hours of notifying of the problem Tricky to unload belongings from car with nearest access a few metres away Overall, an enjoyable stay in a lovely house with friendly service and support.
Penrosa is a lovely split level place to stay, having 2 different outside areas was great. The indoor sofa seating and dinning area was very comfortable and had plenty of space for our group of 6 plus a toddler. Having a laundry was great. This place needs a lick of paint to tidy it up, but I would not let this put you off, it’s a holiday home. It’s location is fantastic for watching life on the water and for people wanting to be near tavern beach. Our only grizzle was that there was voiles in one of the bedrooms, hard to sleep if you like it dark but this could be easier fixed by the owner...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
