A very comfortable, well equipped cottage in a beautiful Roseland village. Lorick Cottage has everything you need for your stay - very comfy beds, lovely powerful shower, pretty fully enclosed patio garden and stuff for the beach. Even visiting dogs are catered for, with dog towels, bowls, throws for the sofas, toys, even a bed for them! The cottage is spotlessly clean, with antibacterial spray and hand gels left for you to use during your stay. My only suggestion, and it's a really minor one, would be the need for some bigger mugs for tea drinkers! Those provided, whilst really beautif...more
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 had a wonderful stay in this excellent House, great location and everything you could want. So comfortable, highly recommended.
We really enjoyed our stay at Foretop. The property was exactly as advertised and provided excellent amenities . We really loved the outside space , the secure garden for our dog , and the accessibility of lots of lovely walks in the area . Easy access to St Mawes and Portscatho was a real bonus where there are plenty options for drinking and eating out . We have visited the Roseland Peninsula many times and next time we return Foretop will be a property we would certainly look to rent again if available .
We love Chymor... it is in the perfect location for a family holiday. It is very well laid out, lots of space, everything you could need. It also has a lovely sun-trap front garden ( in addition to the back garden area ) which is great for watching the world go by, and of course, the sea. The only negative is the somewhat dismissive service we received from Portscatho Holidays - a pity as we haven’t had this problem before.
A recently refurbished 4 bedroom rental property. Everything a family could want in terms of a comfortable stay. Fabulous views over St Mawes and the sea/estuary. Great location near all the facilities, walks and the castle. Loved it!
We can’t recommend this house highly enough- the location was just right for us, quietly situated over looking the Fal yet a short walk into the centre of St Mawes. The house is very comfortable with a good size kitchen and sitting room. We loved that the kitchen is very well equipped and the house feels like a family home. The pool was clean and well cared for so it was a perfect week for us.
Harbour View provided spacious and comfortable living for our family of 5 - and could easily have taken 3 more. The main living quarters were very pleasant, and made all the more so by having a beautiful veranda overlooking the harbour. Unfortunately the thermostat on the shower in the master en suite had been left in a broken condition. However, this did not spoil our stay. Similarly, the view from the downstairs apartment could have been improved if some of the bushes growing nearby, had been trimmed. The wardrobe in that flat had a damp odour to it. We wondered what Harbour View would...more
We loved staying in Sloop, the view was fantastic with lovely walks nearby. Friendly owners and very comfortable property.
Great house in a great location. Loved the views from the dining room and balcony. Everyone loved the pool table. Really comfortable beds and well equipped kitchen. A fantastic stay - we've booked again for next year!
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!
Well placed in the centre of the village, only yards from the shops and pub. It has only recently been modernised so was in very good order. We would only suggest some opaque film on the bathroom window and the sun trap back yard needs to be made more attractive. We would return.
Had a very enjoyable stay . Fab property , very comfortable and spacious and well equipped with everything one might need to have a great holiday. We know this area of Cornwall really well and it was the perfect location to visit all our favourite haunts . Felt really relaxed at the end of our week and would definitely visit again .
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 and spacious property. Well decorated and maintained. Lovely view in a peaceful location a short drive to Portscatho and the beach. Would happily go back.
This is a fabulous house in a stunning location. Whatever the weather, there is always something fantastic to see from the huge lounge windows and it’s true to say there’s a holiday feel to this house come rain or shine. There’s great walks on the doorstep and St Mawes is a short walk up and down the hill. We’ve been back several times and will be rebooking next year!
Great cottage, perfectly located, not over cluttered, quiet and peaceful. Easy access to countryside
A beautifully furnished and well-equipped property which worked well for our family, including a 3 year-old and a baby. The location is excellent and the views amazing. It is always a bonus to have off-street parking in St Mawes!
We had a great holiday in this apartment. It's so central, close to restaurants, cafes and lovely seafood stall and is a great base for walking in the Roseland Peninsula.
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.
We stayed for a week, 5 of us, and it was like home from home. The property ticked every box for us and had the added bonus of an AGA, which was used a few times. The Covid situation meant that most restaurants were fully booked by locals and those in the know. This led us to cooking quite a few meals which we enjoyed in this lovely property.
We visit St Mawes every year but was our first visit to Spindrift. This is such a comfortable house and really made us feel at home and the views are spectacular as we spent many hours just watching the boats. Everything was catered for, so nice to find a holiday home where they have thought of everything and John the caretaker was so friendly and always on hand if we had any problems. One small point is the shrubs to the right just need cutting down a few feet as obscure the beautiful view towards Falmouth. We love this house so perfect for entertaining and the owners have thought of everythi...more
We're experienced self-caterers and Trevu is a real find. Extremely comfortable, well-equipped and very spacious. Above all, its position, close to the sea and with gardens stretching down to the water, is total magic. There are many rented properties in St Mawes, most of them with sea views but they are either higher up the hill or behind the coast road which means the frequent passers by can peer into the garden or even into the house. However, Trevu's gardens are totally private and one can spend the whole day on the terraces enjoying the view and the boating activity across the water t...more
Cottage was lovely and clean on arrival, had a problem with toilet and was fixed the next day as was a broken door lock. Lovely to wake up hearing seagulls (and an Owl!) We both had a great week de-stressing and relaxing - Just what we needed.
We had a wonderful week at The Hermitage. It is in a fantastic location and is a beautifully cozy (but not at all small) home away from home. The property was well equipped with everything you could possibly need apart from a tumble dryer which would have been handy.
A light, bright and well equipped house in a lovely quiet location. Fantastic gardens to visit too! A spectacular walk down to the main part of the town with amazing views across the bay. There are some great walks and activities in St Mawes which meant very little car use for the week. A super holiday location and house.
Our go to property in St Mawes it is just perfect. Property was spotless on arrival, everything we needed on hand. Already booked for next year .
great flat - lovely views and plenty of space. loved the mod cons - sonos speakers etc and was a great location. would definitely go again!
We really enjoyed our stay in Buckingham Cottage. You can see the beautiful harbour from the windows at the back. It's just a few seconds to the quayside; five minutes to two beaches for swimming. The street is quiet, though I wouldn't recommend stopping the car outside the cottage to unload if you've got more than a couple of cases. We tried and had to give up as we were causing an obstruction. The car park is just 5 minutes' walk away. The cottage might be a bit crowded with five or six people (just one bathroom, and you'd have to pull out the dining table), but for the two of us it was perf...more
Maitlands is a lovely apartment with great views over the countryside. It is a ten minute walk to Portscatho (bear in mind down a very steep hill) and a 15-20 minute bus ride from St Mawes. Property could do with a few changes in the kitchen - a splashback behind the cooker, an extractor fan and a draining board. My family found the two single beds a bit narrow, but the double bed was very comfortable. Having Netflix was a definite bonus. A great value holiday.
We stay regularly in St Mawes and this property provided us with absolutely everything we needed out of season for me and my mother. It was immaculately presented and in a terrific location that meant we could watch the world go by whilst feeling safe and it meant that my mum could have access to everything easily. It is also so close to the beach meaning it was a short jaunt back from my swim every day. I would have preferred an earlier check in and later check out but understand that this is COVID related. WiFi was excellent although it would have been great to be able to watch Netflix o...more
Its main redeeming feature was a great location. However it was let down by aged and uncomfortable furnishings, which were bad for posture. We found the double bed to be too soft and sunken (we tried other beds with the same result!). It would have been nice to have chairs and a table in the back garden (there was none) so we were not able to use the back garden, despite the good weather. A microwave is required, the Aga was nice but a bit inflexible - the kitchen was the best room in the house. It would have been useful to have been advised that the door key fitted the back door ...more
Great location, lovely cottage oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
Not our usual type of property, kitchen could have done with a microwave, and oven although had a grill had no grill pan and property not equipped with any metal oven trays so only had one shelf, and a couple of China cooking dishes. Improve on this and would have found life easier there. It does have a bread maker if you are so inclined. General layout of property not easy as over three floors upper main bedroom had extension In roof that had v shaped bars directly over the bed, very dangerous getting in and out of the bed. Also shower cubicle very small by comparison to the one in the basem...more
We had a wonderful time - we know Portscatho well and usually camp at Treloan in the summer, but thought it would be fun to come over New Year (but not camp!). The cottage was perfect. The only thing we couldn't find was a vacuum cleaner and as it was over New Year and the office was closed we weren't able to ring to find out where it was. Beaches + dogs = vacuum cleaners... But that's the only minus - a teeny tiny one. And maybe it was hidden in plain sight and we totally missed it. We really did love our time at Apsley and would love to come again. Thank you.
Having stayed for one week in Pencreek in August 2019 we booked for three weeks this year (The last 9 days of August and the first 12 days of September) and enjoyed three weeks of absolute bliss. Family came down to stay over the first three weekends and everyone enjoyed their time at Pencreek immensely. We hope to return again and again. Richard Butler
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
Well located. Parking space a plus. Quiet during our stay. Bright, modern, comfortable & stylishly furnished. Well equipped kitchen. Two nice bathrooms. Great upstairs but slightly damp downstairs. Garden + patio furniture need attention. Some beach equipment available - nice touch.
What a fantastic cottage. Amazing views and right in the heart of St MAWES. The cottage is spacious,light and airy. Very tastefully decorated and lovely comfy beds. You can never tire of the view. Had a wonderful week and can’t wait to return, thank you
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.
We have visited this property twice. Good layout especially for grandparents with downstairs shower and bedroom. A very sociable house with open plan kitchen, dining area and lounge.The steps down to the property are quite steep especially for the elderly with suitcases. Think there really should be a dishwasher especially with Coronavirus. We loved our holiday and the whole area.
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.
We have been staying at Seascape about the same time for a number of years and have al lways enjoyed ourselves
The house is the perfect location, with direct access to the coast path and a short walk to the village shop and pub. The views from the house are delightful and we were very comfortable and had a very enjoyable stay.
Another glorious and enjoyable week at comfortable South Cottage. We love the position and views across the bay. The facilities in St Mawes locality; cafes, butcher, baker, fish stall, veg stall all Covid safe and welcoming. Regretfully after 20 or more years this will be our last stay at South Cottage as we now find the bath/ shower arrangement too much of a challenge now to negotiate safely.
The house is in an excellent location and is walking distance from everywhere in St Mawes. It is comfortable, very stylish and well appointed. We had a great week there, highly recommended.
A lovely location but very tricky ( for the single over sixty-fives) A long way from the car park to carry all luggage, - particularly when you have to leave on the final day by 9am ( stripping bed and putting rubbish out) Also very noisy from people in flat above
Very comfortable house with lovely garden in a great location. Well equipped throughout and very spacious. Only 10 minutes walk to the harbour and centre of town with shops and restaurants. Lovely to sit on the deck enjoying the view over the bay. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday thank you and hope to return.
Been a vurnable person to covid 19 I found the property was spotless clean and i felt safe staying there Portscatho Holidays were also very helpful and surpportive this was my 5th visit to Rosemary Cottage i enjoyed my stay with lovely sunny warm weather and looking forward to my next visit next year I hope my brothers will be able to come next year
We had a lovely stay in early September sunshine. Sun in terrace at the front in the morning and on the beautiful terrace (up many steps) at the back, with stupendous views, in the evening. House is furnished and equipped to a good standard. Would also be cosy and warm in the winter. Everything a couple plus visiting friends would need.
Great cottage in a wonderful location but there are a number of small issues that need to be addressed. Firstly, some of the windows would not shut properly this rendering the property insecure. Secondly, I would have thought to make a better impression, that the garden could have been mown and the hedges maintained better. Small issues, I know, but the main question is.....would we stay there again???.. . Definitely!! Thank you for a wonderful cottage for a relaxing week. Ruan Pappin.
As always Tavern house is in such a beautiful and perfect location. we always love staying here is a family and love coming back. However we found this year the door handles on the downs stairs bathroom and some of bedrooms were loose causing some problems with closing doors etc. We also felt that asking customers to do an extensive inventory of everything in the property on arrival a bit excessive. It’s an exhaustive list and would take a prolonged period of time to go through all the cupboards looking for every single item on the list which is not something you would expect on arrival for ...more
Medlar is bright, clean, comfortable and spacious enough for a large active family come sun or rain, and it is Cornwall so they do come. The kitchen, dining, relaxing areas are open and big enough to provide space for all. Being on top of the hill means there are views across the harbour. The location is easily accessible and has a super garden for running around in if you're not tired out from swimming, sailing, tombstoning, walking and kayaking.
Over the last 30 years we have stayed in a lot of houses in Portscatho and Lan-Y-Mor was a new one for us. It didn't disappoint, the views from the top floor are fabulous, you can even see when the butchers are open, you can also see Porthcurnick, Pendower and Carne beaches in the same view. The ground floor garage / laundry room is very useful with a large family, kayak, paddle board and all the wetsuits etc. the bedrooms are comfortable even the bunk beds, one of our 6'4" boys slept very happily in the bottom bunk. The only issue we had was the parking, it got very difficult to park when ...more
Second stay at Avalen and it really is just the most comfortable and relaxing cottage imaginable. Location is excellent too!
We had a very pleasant stay we have stayed I. The property before so know it well. It is ideally located for the centre of the village which is handy
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.
The house was very well equipped and the gardens were perfect for a dog - the Aga was comforting and the kitchen was excellent with a lovely patio which was a sun trap . I think the upstairs bathrooms need some renovation in particularly a proper shower should be put in for the master bedroom but the beds were comfy and we had a fantastic stay.
We were told that wifi was available, but it was not - it's nearly 2021! Would recommend if that was resolved. Very poor 4G/3G also. Cooking pans in the oven not clean (very greasy). Outside decking and table had sand everywhere, not been cleaned. Great location, and the lodge was well equipped. We were informed on the write up that due to the virus extra cleaning was required and so we had to be ready to leave by 9am. So we were up extra early to facilitate this and were ready, but nobody turned up at that time, or anywhere near it.
This was my fifth stay in St Mawes so I knew I wanted a sea view and where I wanted to be. Each time I've stayed with Portscatho Holidays and this time was no disappointment. In a strange year we weren't quite sure what to expect and my only criticism would be the 5pm arrival time and a 9am departure time a week later - I didn't really feel we had 7 days there! The house was perfect - comfortable and the location was utterly perfect. The kitchen was nice and had all we needed, bedroom was comfortable with a view to die for. I will never forget it. The en-suite was nice, but the steps were haza...more
A spacious house in a beautiful and central location with stunning sea views both inside and outside. Well equipped and comfortable. Bedrooms, beds and bed linen/towels of high quality. I would have liked cushions for the outside chairs and a parasol for outside table.
Given the scramble for a cottage in St Mawes once the restrictions were lifted, we managed to book Little Venn.and enjoyed a comfortable week with our family. It is located up a very narrow lane which means that access for unloading and loading the car is limited, we found ways around it so it wasn't a big deal. The kitchen area is small but works perfectly well. Living area comfortable, so were the 2 double bedrooms,
We had an excellent week in Portscatho. The house was really attractive and in a great location, 5 minutes walk from the coast. Really great cafe in the village. Didn't have time to try the pub restaurant which has a goood reputation. Less than a mile to the Hidden Hut which is really fashionable. The house is about 100 meters off the road so is quiet and secluded. There was loads of space in the house, with 2 cosy sitting rooms and a large kitchen/dining space. The kitchen was well equipped for 5 adults and 2 little ones. The bathroom water was hot and good pressure, although the flush was...more
Our annual return visit and it didn’t disappoint. Lunch at Hotel Tresanton was lovely and The Hidden Hut was as busy as ever. The Old Dairy is perfect for us, our friends and our two Labradors. Improvements have been made to the property since our last visit (upstairs shower) and the outside patio/decking areas have been smartened up. We have already booked for next year. Can’t wait!
Fantastic location, comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen and a great shower! Although there is no parking we always managed to find a space in the car park which is two minutes away. The decor let’s the cottage down, it could be so pretty but the ugly sofa and chair, curtains and pictures on the wall left us feeling a bit flat. Although generally clean the windows were absolutely filthy and hard to open, lots of cobwebs and spiders. With a bit of TLC Cosy Nook could be a little gem!
A fantastic stay in this wonderful holiday apartment. Comfortable, clean, lovely interior details and in a perfect location. Please can we stay again!
The cottage was very warm and cosy .. with all the comforts of home .. The terrace at the front was a sun trap which at the time Of our stay, was absolutely perfect.. The climb from the harbour was a little taxing but worth it.
It took us ONE AND A HALF DAYS to find the cutlery drawer! We found that we were OVERWHELMED by instructions and booklets and this destroyed the hope we had of a anxious -free holiday after illness, stress and care There was never any information to state that the stairs in the property needed a lot of care by over-70's and in particular during the nighjt when we had to access the toilet ...not very good health and safety. In addition the light switch for the stair light was in a very difficult place and in fact was over the top step ... for older people such as us we found this extremely d...more
