Stunning cottage with great views out to sea and amazing sunrise! It is well equipped and very cosy - the heating worked well for those winter/early spring evening and mornings. The proximity to the village with its excellent pub - The Plume of Feathers, the well stocked shop and the coffee bar Tatums were all much appreciated. The local beach is also very close and tide permitting is a great place for ball throwing time for the dog - out of season. (Poo bags are well catered for in the village so there’s no excuse for not clearing up) There are some amazing walks from the door step - with the Hidden Hut not far away on Porthcurnick beach. I am sure we shall be back soon!

We have stayed at Antigua many times over the years and it always feels like a home away from home. The house is always spotless, comfortable and warm and recent renovations carried out by the owners have made it even more special. We have spent many happy hours sitting in the living room with the log fire blazing watching the amazing sea views from the window. The location is fantastic - Portscatho is a gorgeous, quaint Cornish village with everything you need within walking distance including some fabulous beaches, a well stocked village shop and delicious places to eat. In the surrounding area, we love to visit the picture perfect St Mawes, take a ferry ride to Falmouth or wander round the Lost Gardens of Heligan. Once we arrive at Antigua, we always find it very difficult to leave!

An excellent stay in a beautiful location accommodation can't be faulted.

We love Antiqua more and more each time. We have visited three times and it’s definitely the best property we have stayed in on the Roseland. Booked again already. Thank you to the owners for kindly sharing their very special family holiday home.

We had the most wonderful stay at Antigua. The cottage was beautiful and very well-equipped. The views are absolutely spectacular, and such a great location for walks across to Porthcurnock beach. Wonderful that the cottage is dog and baby friendly - we all enjoyed our stay very much and we will certainly be back! Thank you!

We had an amazing week at Antigua and can’t wait to go again!

So stylish and perfectly comfortable. Felt very at home and relaxed. Small touches like baskets for shoes in the porch were handy. Huge utility room. Didn’t need to use the dining room at all. Lounge perfect for watching tv and so many channels to choose from. Thank you. Nice phone call from the owner on the first night to see if we needed anything.

Another lovely week at Antigua. Kitchen incredibly cosy with the Rayburn going. Wonderful views of raging sea and stormy skies. Marshmallows toasted on the open fire too. A real home from home.

Superb house. Very warm and comfortable. Lots of lovely original art. A real home from home.

Antigua is a wonderfully located and brilliantly equipped family holiday house. Beautiful comfortable and with absolutely everything you need.

Very cosy cottage in a lovely village - amazing to wake up to those views every morning!

Please use me as a reference. I would have no hesitation in recommending this property for its delightful position and facilities. Anyone wanting to leave the hurly burly of modern life behind them for a while and enjoy a traditional, quintessential English seaside holiday, need look no further than Portscatho.

We had a wonderful week staying at Antigua. It is the best equipped holiday cottage we have ever stayed in, has a fabulous location and is a beautiful home. Thank you.

A fabulous family home right in the heart of the village. Amazing views from the front of the house and terrace. Two parking spaces are gold dust. Very strongly recommend, our third or fourth visit to this property.

This Cottage is 5 Star. Beautifully furnished and in a super position. It is very reasonably priced for its high standard and location. We will definitely be booking again..

This holiday home was outstanding. We were so pleased with it and we all had a wonderful family holiday. Gorgeous views. Immediate feeling of homely comfort. Clean and exceptionally comfortable beds throughout.

Beautiful cottage it is like being at home with everything needed. Superb views from three of the bedrooms and relaxing garden at the rear. Would recommend this cottage to anyone wanting a very special retreat in Cornwall.

A real home away from home in a fabulous location. We couldn’t have asked from more from a holiday cottage.

An excellent central village location which in the summer would be a boost with two parking spaces. Secluded attractive garden with sun throughout the day and fabulous panoramic views from the sun terrace at the front of the house.

It would be very useful to have the use of another bed at the property. As my family will be increased by next year we are unable to use this property, which we all loved this year.

We're delighted that you loved the house so much and hope you enjoyed the surrounding area too. The property can accommodate 7 guests in the four bedrooms, and a baby up to 24 months old in the cot. Unfortunately this is the maximum number of guests allowed at this particular property, but we do have several others in the area should your expanding party outgrow the house! Just give our Booking Office team a call and they can help. Tanya, Customer Support

Excellent property - who really know you are in a home and not rented accommodation. Everything you need provided - clean, well decorated, beautiful enclosed garden at rear with front patio overlooking the sea. The 3 bedrooms with sea view were wonderful. Will definitely return.

Perfect place to relax and unwind in a quiet location with stunning views! Location is ideal for walkers and also for those lazy days, stones throw from a beautiful dog friendly beach & dog friendly pub. Don't think we've ever stayed in such a homely, well-stocked & very roomy house on our holidays & hope to be back soon. Loved it!!

Fabulous views, well equipped comfortable house.
