Portscatho is a much sought-after charming seaside village on the Roseland peninsula and Nare View is perfectly situated on Gerrans Hill, just moments away from stunning beaches and the vibrant harbourside. With far reaching views to the blue sea beyond, this beautifully presented Portscatho home may become one of your favourite places to stay.
Accommodating up to six guests in three bedrooms and decorated throughout in cool natural colours, Nare View has a warm welcome whichever time of year you choose to stay. When the sun is shining, when not on the beach or out and about exploring this beautiful part of the Cornish coast, you are likely to spend much of your time outside on the terrace. A real sun-trap in warm weather, so don't forget your hat! This is also the perfect spot for a tasty breakfast before you head out for your next adventure or when there is no need to rush, a leisurely lunch with friends or family.
Open up the French doors in the living-room and bring the outside into this relaxing space, snuggle up on the sofa in front of the wood-burner with a good book or take an afternoon nap after spending a lovely day on the beach. When hunger calls head into the stylish kitchen to rustle up a delicious dinner, there's an abundance of quality produce grown locally, just take a trip to the local farm shop and take your pick. If you prefer to let someone else do the cooking, book a table at one of the local eateries, they're all good, within walking distance and offer a friendly welcome.
On the first floor choose from three lovely bedrooms, bedroom one has sea views from the bedroom window and a king-sized bed, The second bedroom, a twin room, is ideal for adults or children with full-size single beds. Bedroom three offers a cosy double bed (4'6"), please note there is limited access down each side, and the bed may be more comfortably accessed from one side only. This bedroom may therefore be better suited to children or one guest.
Portscatho is the gem in the crown of the Roseland peninsula, a pretty village with oodles of charm and character. For your morning coffee and fresh pastries try Tatam's with fabulous sea vistas or The Boathouse where you will find the freshest of home-cooked food for breakfast, lunch and dinner during the summer season. The Plume of Feathers in the centre of the village has an excellent reputation for traditional pub food or head up the hill to The Standard and enjoy food cooked outdoors on the wood-fired grill.
The beaches here are simply perfect for families, with sheltered shallow waters and rockpools to explore. Kayakers and paddle boarders, equipment can be rented locally, will have fun here too with miles of shoreline waiting to be explored. Walkers will be in heaven as the coast path runs through the village with easy access in either direction and your dog will be pretty happy with you too! Don't forget to head for Porthcurnick beach and the Hidden Hut, one of the area's best kept secrets where guests sit side by side on wooden benches dining on the freshest of local produce. You may be lucky and get tickets for one of their famous feast nights on the beach.
A car-free holiday could be on the cards here with so much close by but if you do decide to travel further afield head for the vibrant village of St Mawes, just a short drive away. Here you will find a plethora of eateries, from fine dining to fish and chips eaten from paper on the sea wall and everything in between. Take the passenger ferry from the harbourside to the maritime town of Falmouth where you will find a great selection of eclectic shops, galleries, and a marvellous seafaring museum. Ferries also leave here for lesser-known locations such as the pretty village of Flushing and the very beautiful and tranquil Place.
Further afield the mighty biomes of the Eden Project await, or perhaps head for The Lost Gardens of Heligan, lost in time since WWI, discovered 30 years ago and now restored to their former glory.
Whether you are looking for a family holiday home with the beach close by or a base for discovering the best of Cornwall, Nare View has all you need for a great holiday.
