We had a wonderful stay at Tamerisk it is in a great location, fully equipped for a great stay. The rooms are light, spacious and have a good amount of storage.

The morning view out of the front of the house over the sea is stunning!

The owners have stocked the house with everything we needed an iron, hair dryer etc, the garden has furniture and is private and safe perfect for a young family.

An easy walk into Portscatho for a trip to the beach or the boathouse. The on site parking was a godsend with the village being so busy.

A few tweaks and it would be perfect.

We are thrilled to hear you had a wonderful stay at Tamarisk. It is situated in such a perfect location of Portscatho and the views really are delightful! We wish to welcome you back again in the future. Meg, Customer Support

Tamarisk is our go to choice for staying in Portscatho , it’s conveniently situated between the village and Porthcurnick beach.

Our second stay at Tamarisk which we can't fault. Have been coming to Roseland for over 20 years and Portscatho has become a favourite destination. On the edge of the village but very close to the coast path for access this accommodation works really well for just the two of us but given 3 bedrooms would equally suit a small family.

Very clean and well presented with a pleasant garden and seating area to the rear.

Would not hesitate to stay again.

House is in a lovely, quiet spot with views of the sea. 10 minute walk (if that!) into Portscatho. Kitchen had everything you could possibly need for a self-catering stay. Tastefully furnished house, gardens well-kept with areas to eat outside, weather permitting.

We very much enjoyed our week in Tamarisk and found the home to be clean & tidy throughout with lovely views and nice gardens to both front and back, the driveway for car parking was also very good. The location of the property allowed just a 5 minute walk to the village and harbour area and we found the Plume of Feathers, village shop and Boat House restaurant to be very good. We also enjoyed nice coast path walks towards St. Anthony Head to the South and Pendower Beach and beyond in the other direction and made use of the Hidden Hut cafe at Porthcurnick Beach on several occasions. We also made visits too to other local pubs in the surrounding villages for evening meals, all of which were very good for both quality and value. The nearby Curgurrell Farm shop was also very good, we used it at the beginning of our week to purchase the breakfast ingredients for our stay and once more the range and quality of the food available was excellent.

Always a pleasure to stay at Tamarisk .

Great location, very good layout and a well equipped kitchen

Lovely quiet property in good location, well appointed with everything you need for an enjoyable self catering holiday. Parking on site is very handy in Portscatho which gets very busy. Light and airy with wonderful views. No hesitation in recommending.

Always a joy to stay at Tamarisk . We know and love the area which has a special place in our hearts .

Our third visit to Tamarisk, lovely house and great location.

Wonderful holiday accommodation, excellent views and very comfortable. Very quiet, easy access to the village and local beaches. Will book again next year.

Finding fault with anything about this property would be nit picking for the sake of it. It is located in a beautiful coastal/harbour village and enjoys wonderful views over Gerrans Bay. It is very nicely decorated and furnished to a high standard with a warm and welcoming feel.

Having had a less than satisfactory experience lately, it was wonderfully reassuring to find this cottage is very clean indeed and is equipped with quality utensils etc., that are properly maintained and in full working order. Our faith has been restored completely.

We had a fabulous holiday again this year, lovely home, wonderful views and garden space for the kids. Well equipped and clean, you had thought of everything. Thank you again.

Great location. Good sized garden. Cottage was let down by the level of cleanliness especially in the kitchen which was disappointing.

Perfect position to reach all amenities in Porthscatho. Quiet & private garden which is very well cared for.

The nicest cottage we have every stayed in. Very well equipped with everything you could possibly need. Lovely sea views and great local facilities. We have a wonderful time, thank you!

A beautifully located and really excellent property - equipped to a high standard. A real sense of caring offered here - both for the property and for its occupants.

Wonderful place to stay to explore a beautiful part of the country.
