Excellent house in a stunning little location. Well equipped and very close to local amenities. It’s a quiet location, perfect for trips out.

Beautiful house with plenty of room for large families. Separate lounges so that you can relax on occasions. I was worried about the stairs having mobility problems but was relived to find that the stairs where not straight up but had landing areas. The beach was near and the children really enjoyed being able to just walk down the road. A very handy grocery store, well stocked and fantastic butcher and delicious pasty. The family enjoyed a boat trip from St Mawes to Falmouth in all a wonderful holiday had by the whole family.

Our family group from 4-72 thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in Hillside House. The general relaxed layout of the house and many bathrooms were much appreciated. It was cosy inside when raining with plenty of space for us, and grandchildren enjoyed trying out stack of games! Thank you.

This is an excellent house for large groups in a fantastic location. The convenience store two doors away sells everything that you could need and we enjoyed a very good meal in the pub opposite. Having booked four excellent large houses through Classic Cottages, Hillside House exceeded our expectations and we would love to return.

December 2017

Absolutely loved the house and Portscatho. House was perfect for family gathering , had everything you need and furnished beautifully. Was warm and comfortable . Location was perfect. Centre of village across the road from pub which was lovely, one minute from the beaches, footpaths. The village is extremely friendly and very pretty especially at night with Xmas decorations. The housekeeper was excellent. Got back to me promptly and dealt with everything really quickly. We would love to book this place again.

September 2017

Great location, good size. Really nice to have your own private bathrooms. Close to a pub that serves very good food and the local shop selling everything. Very friendly village.

August 2017

We absolutely love the house, the position, and the whole set up and will be booking again for 2018. The proximity to the village, the town and Porthcurnick beaches is ideal for children. The butcher is brilliant. Super pasties and his sausages and hogs pudding are very special. The balcony at the Club has added another element to an excellent watering hole and the management at the Plume of Feathers have restored the pub to what one remembers from 50 years ago! Excellent food and beer. Portscatho is a lovely place for a holiday for people of all ages.

July 2017

Excellently located in a picturesque village close to 2 magnificent beaches & a very good local pub with great food

May 2017

Fantastic spacious house with the luxury of all rooms being en suite. Perfect location as able to walk onto beach and next to a great butcher and store that stocks most things you need. Highly recommended for large groups of friends/families sharing.

April 2017

Great accommodation and located in the centre of the village close to all amenities and not far from the 'sea views' (best view we found was on the rear terrace of the Harbour Club which is only c75m from the property) .... sadly, much maintenance work was required in the rear courtyard !

It's great to hear that you liked the house and its location in the village. Thanks for your feedback about the courtyard - woodwork can take a battering over winter in seaside spots such as this, but now the weather's better we'll have a chat with the Owner about some painting and weeding.

This house was perfectly located in such a charming village, very close to stunning beaches and the coast path. Our party ranged from 72 to 6 years of age and we all loved every minute. The house offers comfort and modern comforts, with loads of character. We will be booking it again!

September 2016

Great Location.

September 2016

This was our second visit to Hillside House and it did not disappoint. Well equipped and with plenty of space for us, sons & wives and grandchildren. Lovely to have children's toys, books & videos available. Superb location with parking spaces a real bonus. Butcher next door, pub opposite, shop just above and Tatums coffee shop just a few paces downhill. Just add cornish sunshine and enjoy!

July 2016

Perfect place to stay in a perfect location

March 2016

Great house and location

February 2016

Perfect holiday house for our family group and suited all ages. Lots of space to all be together or apart. The garden was a sun trap even in February. The parking is a real bonus in Portscatho and the central location meant we had everything we needed close by. We would definitely go back. Loved it.
