Very comfortable, well-equipped apartment with excellent views of the wonderful scenery and sea in Portscatho. Very relaxing place and ideal for a quiet holiday & for taking advantage of the local beaches and coastal walks.

November 2019

An extremely comfortable property, ideal for a couple and perfectly situated in Portscatho. It was perfect for a November break to visit family locally. The weather was appalling but we were lovely and warm and cosy. The kitchen was very well equipped, the bed very comfortable and an excellent shower. We would be very happy to return and have already recommended it to friends.

September 2019

We loved Cowries, so light, bright, airy and spacious. Very clean and roomy, amazing shower and comfy bed. The location was perfect as we are walking the SW coast path and the views were incredible. Portscatho had everything we needed, brilliant pub, the shop and butchers sold high quality and delicious produce. Loved it all and didn’t want to come home!!

August 2019

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Cowries. Great location and everything in the apartment was first class. Absolutel joy to be able to walk everywhere, once there really didnt need the car. Bus service good to venture further out but really was happy to stay in Portscatho, everything catered for.
