Great accommodation with everything you need. Lovely position near sea
Mr Wells September 2023
Whilst only a 15-20 min walk from Portscatho with a pavement most of the way, it does mean coming back in the dark at this time of year (September) with no street lighting for some of the way. A good torch was provided. May or June would be a especially good time to go as one could return from eating in daylight. Cottage details could make it clearer that one can access Portscatho on foot via the road not just the cliff path.

Mrs Beale September 2023
We have stayed at Bryher for many years now, and we always enjoy our holiday there. With a large gated deck and a field for our dog to run around, the cottage is perfect for us. The cottage is superbly well equipped with comfortable furniture and bed, and the owners Jean and Doug are very friendly and generous, with all necessities supplied over and above what one would usually expect to find. The location of course is just perfect - ten minutes walk to the beach, the same in the other direction to Portscatho with its shops, galleries and cafés. The SWCP on the doorstep. What could possibly be better?
Mrs Campbell August 2023
Had a wonderful week at Bryher in a comfortable well equiped cottage in a great location. Lovely firm sandy beach close by and only a short walk to nearest town. Would thoroughly recommend.
Mrs Hancock June 2023
Lovely comfortable, well equipped, property. Great location, very quiet and peaceful, yet only a 10 min walk to Portscatho, which was perfect for me. A week wasn't long enough - I didn't want to leave.
Mrs Wilson April 2023
Definitely 5 star accommodation. The cleanest and one of the most comfortable and best equipped cottages that I’ve ever stayed in. Proximity to Porthcurnick Beach, the unique Hidden Hut and Portscatho was closer than expected. Particularly enjoyed daily early morning walks with my dog, Flora, to the beach and surrounding meadows full of wonderful spring flowers, including amazing orchids. Hardly used the car as the coastal path was so accessible. Loved exploring the Roseland Peninsula! The whole holiday was a joy!
Mrs Burns April 2023
Fantastic holiday, weather was great. Great location, Easy access to beach short walk up the road, Beanie dog loved it. Easy to get around Cornwall. Jean & Doug we're very welcoming, Lovely place. Thankyou.
Mrs Hawkins November 2022
We really enjoyed our stay at Bryher and would have liked to have stayed longer but unfortunately had other commitments. We were made to feel very welcome. The cottage was so cosy and comfortable and the field for exercising our dog was an added bonus. She loved it! It is conveniently situated for both the beach and village. We are certainly planning to book again for next year.

Mrs Helfrich October 2022
Our second visit to Bryher, and it didn't disappoint. A great host and a well equipped barn. Comfortable, clean, warm and in a great location on the beautiful Roseland. Long dog walks, fresh air and some great lunches. We can particularly recommend The Standard for a fabulous Sunday lunch.
Mrs Beale October 2022
We have enjoyed holidays at Bryher for many years now. It’s a very comfortable barn conversion for two (and a dog) so suits us perfectly. The owner has thought of everything here. Bryher is in a great location - a short walk to the SWCP, with Porthcurnick beach and the Hidden Hut ten minutes walk in one direction and Portscatho ten minutes walk in the other! Nothing not to love.
Mr Beer October 2022
The location of this holiday home is excellent - we were able to walk the coast path directly from the barn, and also walk to the local pub and shop when needed. It was spotlessly clean and all the furniture and equipment was of good quality. Very comfy bed. Jean is an excellent host.
Mrs Williams August 2022
Fantastic host, beautiful property, great location with an easy walk to the town. We would highly recommend and will definitely be back!
Mrs Butler June 2022

Mr Dodds May 2022
Beautiful setting and relaxing environment. Accommodation excellent with everything we needed. Easy access to beach, coastal walks and village for shops and pub. Our host, Jean, is so friendly and helpful without being intrusive. This is a perfect setting for us.
Mr Scott April 2022

Mrs Burns April 2022
Lovely place, close to sea just a walk up the road. Felt very welcome when arrived by Jean lovely lady . Very dog friendly, Beanie dog loved it. Great holiday, thank you.
Mrs Cooper October 2021
A lovely cottage for two which was exactly as the photos show and described accurately, including the walking times to the beach (& Hidden Hut) and into the centre of Porthscatho. There is no point in taking the car into the village when staying this close. Tatums is the best place for a morning coffee and treat!

Ms Crew September 2021
Stylish barn in a great position near to the coast. We’ll equipped and comfortable. Will definitely return.
Miss Fletcher August 2021
Delightful property with accommodations owners. The location is perfect if you don’t want to use your car much - with the beach, Portscatho and walks on your doorstep. But also located for car journeys to surrounding villages and towns if you want to explore further afield.
Mrs Helfrich July 2021
We had a really relaxing week at Bryer. Loved the style and comfort of the cottage -just the right size for two and a dog. It was great to have the convenience of the enclosed orchard garden to let the dog exercise in the early morning and late at night. It's location couldn't be better with only a five minute walk to Porthcurnick Beach and slightly longer in the opposite direction to Porthscatho. The Roseland is THE most beautiful part of Cornwall and we have been coming back to this area for 16 years now. It always feels like coming home!
Miss Malpass July 2021
Lovely cottage, lovely hosts, lovely area, lovely weather.....couldn't ask for anything more
Mrs Beale June 2021
Bryher is a very comfortable cottage for two, with a large outside decked area. There’s also an orchard with picnic tables. It’s in a convenient spot ten minutes walk away from Portscatho and ten minutes walk from Porthcurnick beach and the Hidden Hut. We’ve stayed there for many years now and just keep on coming back. The entire area is prime walking country. We love it.
Ms Bye June 2021
Excellent property. Ideally situated for beach and village. Owners very friendly and helpful.
Mrs Nicholls June 2021
Superb property to stay in, a five star property! In a quiet beautiful setting, highly recommended.
Mr Dodds May 2021
Superb setting with everything we needed to make it a great stay. Property was spotlessly clean and comfortable. 5 minutes walk from the beach and village centre with pubs and shop so hardly needed to use the car. Stunning walks along coastal path. Owner, Jean, was very helpful and made us feel very welcome.
Mr Hitchings May 2021
We loved Bryher and will definitely be returning. It was spotlessly clean, and well equipped the owners have thought of everything. Location was fantastic for beach, village and pub and some stunning runs. The owners are welcoming, friendly and super helpful they even gave us salad freshly picked from their garden!
Mrs Shepherd April 2021
A beautifully maintained property - we thought it was all brand new but apparently not! We could not fault the cleanliness, space and comfort of this lovely barn/cottage. Location perfect for the coast path and exploring the Roseland Peninsula generally. We will return!
Mrs Stanbury October 2020
We have recently returned from a week in this lovely cottage. It was spotlessly clean and comfortable, with everything we could possibly need. There is a meadow close by and a large field from which there is a view of the sea and beach and beyond to Nare Head and which was ideal for dog exercising etc. The voucher we received as a welcome gift was spent at the Portscatho Stores which is only a short (maybe 10 mins?) walking distance away and has a good range of provisions. The coastal path runs just below the property, easy walking one way...a bit more taxing the other! We would thoroughly recommend this little cottage to anyone wanting a relaxing getaway in beautiful surroundings. We have been coming to this area for many years and love it!

Mrs Harrington July 2019
Lovely cottage, very comfortable and a good size for 2. The location is perfect - 10 minutes to a wonderful beach (and the Hidden Hut) and 15 minutes to the village. A really relaxing holiday.
Mrs Shepherd June 2019
Bryher is the perfect cottage for two with everything we need for a comfortable stay, and we keep going back because it’s dog friendly and a short walk from Portscatho and Porthcurnick beach, both places that we love.
Mrs Mottershead June 2019
Home from home perfect location and stunning property can’t wait to return
Mrs Nicholls June 2019
This was our third visit to Bryher. It has been completly refurbished to a very high standard. It is extremely comfortable and all the fixtures and fittings are superb. The position of Bryher is ideal as it is an easy stroll to Portscatho where there are several good places to eat. The coastal path is minutes away with glorious views along the coast. We will certainly be returning to this lovely property.
Mr Rawle June 2019
Exceptionally well appointed accommodation in a quiet position above Portscatho with easy access to the coast path and village.
Miss Lavender May 2019
The property exceeded our expectations. The 'home-from-home' feeling of the property and the care that had gone into it, not to mention the lovely owners, ensured our first visit to Portscatho was perfect. Thank you!
Mrs Meadows August 2018
Wonderful stay at this beautiful little cottage. Totally refuelled batteries. Immaculately clean, well equipped and the welcome biscuits were delicious. We will definitely return the paddock and orchard to exercise our dog were a super bonus and the glimpse of the sea stunning. Wonderfully friendly local people had a fabulous time .
Mr Sarsfield-Hall June 2018
This is a lovely property in a great location with nice touches e.g. quality of the kitchen utensils and crockery. Location near to beach and the onsite paddock make it an ideal holiday for the dog.
Mrs Nicholls June 2018
Lovely place for two, excellent location and very high standard.
Mr Farmer June 2018
The cottage is cosy, well equipped & very close to the beach. (372yds). It is in a lovely part of Cornwall with so much to see & do.
Mrs Hedges May 2018
Great for dog owners with lovely dog-friendly Porthcurnick Beach just a few minutes away & easy access to the coast path. All round very comfortable stay & will be looking to return.
Mrs Macdonald May 2018
The cottage is in a good location but we had no phone signal and the wifi was down. Our rating would have been 5 star if did not have the communication issues.
Reply from Classic Cottages
We're so sorry that there was a problem with the WiFi, and that regrettably the new router didn't sort the problem. As you know, the owner and housekeeping team are dealing directly with Plusnet to ensure this WiFi connection is back up and running, and we're pleased that we were able to agree on a suitable recompense. We look forward to welcoming you back again. Tanya, Customer Support
Mrs Collis Hunter April 2018
This cottage is perfection, clean, cozy, wonderful location, there is really nothing more we could have wanted.
Mrs Britten December 2017
A well kept, spotlessly clean holiday cottage in a great location. Our arrival at Christmas was greeted with a very warm barn, flowers, bubbly and chocolates - a great start!
Mrs Shepherd July 2017
Bryher is a comfortable cottage in a wonderful location close to Portscatho and within a few minutes walk of Porthcurnick beach. There's a field adjacent to the property to walk the dog. The owners are very friendly and helpful. One of the best self catering places we've stayed in.
Miss Burgess June 2017
Fantastic location, very peaceful and just a short walk to beach and local village
Ms Coventry May 2017

Mr Sarsfield-Hall July 2016
Lovely place with excellent interior and very dog friendly with lovely orchard and paddock plus fantastic beach just down the hill.
Mrs Shepherd June 2016
Bryher is a lovely comfortable cottage in a beautiful location with spectacular views of Gerrans Bay from the grounds. The coast path and Porthcurnick beach are a few minutes' walk away, with the village of Portscatho about a ten minute walk away. Everything you need for a restful holiday, and the paddock is great for the dog to run about. We love it and so does our border collie!
