Compact but lovely cottage in an excellent location in the heart of the village. An ideal base for exploring the beautiful surrounding coastline.

This cottage, in this location suited us perfectly as we love to explore areas by walking. We were lucky with the fantastic weather too!

I absolutely loved my stay at 1 North Parade. The cottage is beautifully furnished and super comfortable. I spent most evenings in front of the wood burner in the arm chair. The location is very convenient-close to the beach, shop and pub, as long as you don't rely on your car being parked outside. I will definitely be back.

Lovely property, we will book again

Fantastic property ideal for a couple, close to all local amenities. Spotless, well equipped and furnished with some tasteful, quirky little touches. The log burner was a massive plus and added to the ambience of this really lovely little property. I would thoroughly recommend it.

We are so glad that the property worked so well for you and it is in a great spot. It must have been lovely to have the log burner to cosy up to after a days exploring. We are so glad that you would recommend and hope to welcome you back again. Sarah, Customer Support

The minute we walked through the front door, we felt right at home in this lovely, quirky cottage. Excellent location for stunning walks along SW coast path and handily placed for Portscatho’s great pub, restaurant, shop and butchers. Also not forgetting the amazing coffee at Tatums!

A very nice comfortable cottage for two people. Right in the centre of the village very close to well stocked shop and local pub. We had slight concern about being opposite the Harbour Club entrance but it was quieter that we expected. Local walks from the front door and plenty to see and visit in the immediate area. Parking is available about 200mts away up a steep hill and not a problem. Overall the village is not too busy unlike other local places like St Mawes or Mevagissey which has lots of visitors.

Lovely cottage for 2, amazing location and was a very comfortable place to stay for 2 weeks.

A gorgeous little cottage. We love the location in lovely Portscatho. The village has an excellent pub, a lovely little restaurant and a very well equipped shop. There is delicious pastries and coffee served every morning at Tatum's which is two minutes walk away. Lots of fantastic coastal walks on your doorstep. North Parade was a wonderful, restful place to return to at the end of a long day. We will be back.

A lovely few days respite at this great cottage. Very clean and comfortable with all you want at hand.

Fantastic location (shame that the Harbour Club prevents the view of the sea). Step out of the door and turn right and you have a shop/post office, butcher, pub, and cafe/restaurant. Plus galleries. Turn left and you have a takeaway coffee shop selling coffee and pastries right next to the beach.

A few minutes drive and you have excellent restaurants. What more would you want?

What a brilliantly designed bolthole for 2 - light, airy and in premium location for an early and excellent coffee on sea wall. Everything you want and more, and a fab shower too.

Lovely bijou cottage. Beautifully thought through

What a wonderful little find! Immaculate in every way! Thank you Classic Cottages!

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.

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.

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.

A wonderful property Clean. Comfortable very warm during autumn evenings

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.

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

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

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!

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

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

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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

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

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
