Small but beautifully done. Location just seconds from the sea.

This was our third visit to this beautiful and charming cottage. We loved coming back here at the end of a lovely long day. Spotless, comfortable and cosy. Very well equipped. We love Portscathco and the village has a lovely feel about it. Local store, a lovely pub, Tatams coffee hut. A wonderful and relaxing place to be and the sea right on your doorstep. A special and magical place. Thank you.

Lovely cottage - beautifully converted to make the most of the space and very comfortable to be in. Although you can't see the sea it is literally a few paces away. It is cool in summer and probably very cosy in winter. The Roseland Peninsula is beautiful and unspoilt. If you like walking then you can head off straight from Portscatho in various directions. If you like sitting and gazing at the sea then you don't need to go anywhere else. Due to lockdown the Harbour Club, which is directly opposite the cottage, was closed - it may be that it would be noisy in the evening. The club also has a deck looking out over the sea, so if you join in with the social life then the proximity might be a plus. We had a wonderful week. As usual Classic Cottages delivered everything it promised.

Susan and Andrew 28th Dec - 3rd January

A gorgeous little property just a few meters fom the sea. Extremely comfortable, very well equipped and very tastefully furnished and decorated. Wonderful coast and beach walks to be had from Portscatho and the surrounds and the village shop is a gem.

October 2019

The perfect location for our 'get away from it all' holiday. The cottage met all our needs and the location enabled fabulous coastal walks from the doorstep. Portscatho is a lovely place with great amenities. We would definitely stay her again if holidaying in this part of Cornwall.

October 2019

A wonderful property Clean. Comfortable very warm during autumn evenings

September 2019

A cosy, tastefully decorated cottage very close to the sea. The village of Porthscatho has a lovely friendly atmosphere and is well supplied with eating options and a shop. A lovely place to stay out of season.

September 2019

well furnished accommodation a real home from home, very clean and comfy, would recommend a stay at this cottage in a stunning location.

September 2018

Fabulous location a stones throw from the beach and wonderful Tatums for coffee, cakes and 180 degree sea views

August 2018

A lovely cottage in a perfect spot close to all amenities and the sea. A little dark downstairs but the living area bright but it is a cottage and its very quaint so to be expected. Overall a lovely break.

May 2018

Loved it!

June 2017

Second time that we have stayed there. Can't wait to come back to friendly Portscatho and stay in the cottage in 2018.

April 2017

Wonderful picturesque cottage in a great location. Portscathco has a lot to offer everybody.

April 2017

Aptly described 'bolthole' - delightful accommodation for two - very thoughtfully fitted out.

February 2017

Really snug and a delightful getaway place right in the heart of the village. So very well equipped and beautifully decorated.

December 2016

Our stay at 1 North Parade was fantastic. We stayed for New Year and Portscatho was buzzing. Nearby pub is fab as is Tatums - a must try! Would definately come back.

September 2016

Lovely cottage in a great location. Easy walk to Porthcurnick beach & The Hidden Hut. Lovely food at The Plume of Feathers but book first as it gets very busy. Coffee & cakes at Tatams is a perfect start to the day where you can sit and seal watch. The Harbour Club is well worth a few visits for a drink & its views from their lovely new balcony. Local shop has all that you need . We have fallen in love with Portscatho and will be back again.

June 2016

A little gem of a cottage, right on the coast path in a beautiful village on a stunning stretch of Cornish coastline. Well-equipped, cleverly designed & tastefully decorated for those wishing for a home from home. Or...the perfect little bolt hole for lazy comfort-lovers who wish to stroll ( the 10 seconds ) to Tatums coffee hut rather than switch on a kettle, indulge in excellent coffee/homemade pastries/cakes/& the best pizzas outside of Italy.

June 2016

Lovely bolt-hole, cottage is very pretty & right in the heart of the village.

June 2016

We liked the Cottage and Portscatho so much that we have already reserved it for next year.

April 2016
