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.

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 the dog friendly 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.

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. The dogs really enjoyed exploring the beach at Porthcurnick as they are not allowed on Portscathno beach.

June 2016

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

April 2016

Little gem of a cottage pretty and comfortable so well equipped and in a perfect location we had a wonderful short break and loved every minute we cannot wait to return
