Situated just above the village square in the coastal village of Portscatho this pretty, traditional former fisherman's cottage is a short walk up the hill from the beach and harbour. Retaining lots of its original character including thick cob walls, beams and low ceilings (please take care), Trecarol provides spacious accommodation for four. The semi-detached cottage has an enclosed rear terrace which is a lovely space for relaxing and enjoying al fresco meals, and there is also a small summer-house to retreat to from the sun with a good book.
Portscatho has everything you need with a well-stocked village shop, a butcher and a choice of places to eat with a friendly pub and a local taverna which also does amazing takeaway pizzas. Enjoy a morning coffee and croissant at Tatams, a small artisan coffee hut overlooking the beach, while the children go crabbing in the rockpools below. The well-known Hidden Hut cafe at Porthcurnick Beach serves delicious outdoor cooked food and has regular ticketed feast nights during the year. Nearby at Rosevine is the Driftwood Hotel with its Michelin star restaurant, and the Nare Hotel at Carne and the Hotel Tresanton in St Mawes both have excellent waterside restaurants for those special nights out.
The Roseland peninsula is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with a stunning variety of coastal walks and scenery to enjoy and many sandy beaches and coves to explore.
Trecarol is also well placed for exploring some of the wonderful Cornish gardens, you can take the King Harry Ferry across the River Fal to Trelissick Gardens and The Lost Gardens of Heligan and Caerhays are also easily accessible and well worth a visit.
