Beautifully situated just above the picturesque harbour in Portscatho, from the garden Cliff Cottage enjoys incredible panoramic sea views of Gerrans Bay including Porthcurnick Beach, Pednvadan Point and over as far as Nare Head and Gull Rock. This original fisherman's semi-detached cottage has been beautifully restored and decorated in calm neutral colours throughout to provide the perfect seaside retreat; with three bedrooms and two bathrooms it offers flexible accommodation for couples and families, and has the added bonus of enclosed parking for two cars with additional space for boats and kayaks.
The property welcomes a dog and you can enjoy a variety of cliff side walks along the stunning coastal footpath that is right on your doorstep. Children will love swimming from Tatams Beach out to the diving platform and there are a great number of rock pools for crabbing at low tide and fishing fun for all from the jetty at high tide.
Portscatho has a great village shop, butcher and friendly pub and taverna all only a short stroll away. The well-known Hidden Hut cafe at Porthcurnick Beach serves delicious outdoor cooked food and has regular ticketed feast nights during the year. Nearby is the Driftwood Hotel with its Michelin star restaurant and the Idle Rocks and Hotel Tresanton in St Mawes both have excellent waterside restaurants.
