Excellent cottage in fabulous location - great help from housekeeper and owner. Amazing kitchen equipment. Lovely rooms. Pretty garden. Will be rebooking in 2021.
Fantastic views, excellent location, comfortable, clean. Close to beach, well stocked shop, butcher, pub.
Lovely property in a spectacular location and with a stunning view. We shall be returning. Recommended.
Last minute thing, ....service and help by Portscatho Holidays in answering a question was very prompt and helpful.. As a base for Roseland area ....excellent and views far reaching on a sunny day. The cottage / new bungalow first class, a real treat. A great place to stay and explore from.
We had a very enjoyable stay at McKenzie in Portscatho. The property was in a great location, comfortable and had everything we needed.
This is our second year at Harbour View which is a beautiful cottage with outstanding views. Well equipped and generally very comfortable. Well located to all the local amenities. Our only disappointments were the building works next door which meant from 8am we were disturbed by drilling and at some points the noise was so loud the balcony was unusable... watch out because it looks like it will be many many more months before this work is complete and for the price of the property was a real let down.
Beautiful house in a great location, we loved the views from the house and the peace and quiet. Lots for everyone - parents grandparents and our 21 month old. Very well equipped and felt homely not “just” a holiday let. Portscatho holidays were lovely and easy to deal with - absolutely no problems, I will definitely be booking again.
We enjoyed our visit with long walks and watching the seabird variety from the living room. We especially enjoyed the meals at local pubs and talking with local residents. The Seahouse is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy Cornwall.
Lovely place to stay well equipped ( apart from no microwave) .very comfortable apartment with great views
Although providing no real views the property is central and easily accessible. It is very well presented, modern, comfortable and fully equipped. It is a flat and is susceptible to noise from adjoining properties. This is not a major issue assuming other occupants are respectful. The only real improvement I would recommend is in line with previous reviews - please stretch to a bigger TV! The present one is just silly - bearing in mind there is no view or outside space in the evening. Still very good value!
The view from Tregwylan is simply stunning and we greatly enjoyed the open-plan layout and being able to watch the activities on the water from the deck.
A wonderfully comfortable and clean house with every amenity needed, for our family of 5. The view from the sitting room was beautiful and it was a short walk to the quay, shops etc. Can’t wait to come back to St Mawes!
Pengerin had just what we wanted and the village was perfect too. WE had a very relaxing stay and hope to be back soon
Brilliant cottage in the idyllic St Mawes for a family break away from all the chaos life throws at you. Great value for money and looks exactly as the pictures state. A stones throw from the shops and beach making it the perfect spot to grab a snack from the shop or walk along the beach. Great service and all round fabulous family holiday cottage- we will definitely book again.
A bright and very comfortable place to stay, Fantastic views across the bay. Modern, well appointed, stylish, well presented with everything you need. Good layout - we chose Penyarrow mainly because we had grandma staying with us who is 90 and she needed a walk-in shower with easy access.. the downstairs bedroom was ideal for her. We also loved the views. A very relaxing place to stay. Very comfortable beds, and duvets/bedding. Towels lovely and soft.
The house is in a great location and gave us a good base for walks into the village and down to the beach. The seating area in the garden is a lovely sun trap. We loved the interior design too. Portschatho Holidays were quick to respond to problems we encountered during our stay. The only improvements we could suggest would be investing in a decent knife block for families who dine in and there wasn’t a companion set for the fireplace which will be needed in Winter.
Parc an Bounder was an excellent holiday home .We stayed for 2 weeks in August it is very well equipped with everything you need.The property is very light and spacious.
I have been staying at Midships for the last twenty odd years, and it gets better every year. Well equipped, comfortable and a view to die for. My little bit of Heaven. I love it.
We love Seascape but do feel it’s a bit tired. Chipped mugs,stains on chairs, it could do with a freshening up.
Great location, spacious property with stunning views across to St Anthony and Falmouth. Great service from Portscatho Holidays
Spacious, clean and very well equipped. Lovely enclosed garden and central position in St Mawes.Could do with a barbecue though?
Our second visit to The Hermitage, a perfect location with a beautiful sea view and handy parking. An ideal size cottage for a small family.
All good but perhaps should mention shared and crowded courtyard and proximity to Harbour Club so need to keep windows closed at night
We love the views from this cottage. The cottage is dry and comfortable. A lovely place to stay. Our only reservation is the bathroom next to the master bedroom needs updating. It is not up to the standard of the rest of the cottage.
Had a wonderful stay in Upper Warren which is in the most fantastic location in St Mawes and the house is stunning!!
For a family reunion/holiday it was a very good location - my family used to live nearby. St.Mawes is very convenient - the shops are only 10 minutes away. The weather was fantastic for the week. We had no problems at all. Definitely a "recommendation".
Our stay in The Old Forge was very pleasant. This traditional Cornish cottage is well-equipped and the perfect base to explore the beautiful countryside of the Roseland Peninsula, but is still near to great beaches and seaside villages. Walking along the estuary from the cottage in the evening to spot bats and owls is a particular treat!
Another lovely stay in Puffin. Brilliant location. Central to village with amazing views. Comfortable accommodation and a good size as a base for a family of four.
Best ever property we've rented with you. Best ever property we've rented with you Best ever property we've rented with you
We stayed for one week in late September 2018. The property was well maintained and the kitchen was well stocked with cooking utensils, everything you would need. Instructions booklets very helpful. Only one improvement suggested would be for the use of canvas bags for recycling, as the recycling facilities in St Mawes car park are limited in what you can recycle, when we know through Cornwall council you can recycle more. This is having stayed in St Mawes before and we recycled a lot more.
Brooks Cottage is a wonderfully located, spacious and comfortable place to holiday. It has beautiful views from the front windows and is within a short walking distance from shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants. The Aga provides a comforting background warmth and the cottage is very well equipped. I have no hesitation in recommending Brooks as an ideal holiday cottage.
Again a lovely stay at castle cottage. Some touching up has been done since our last visit but it is looking tired in places. The bathroom for example, could do with a deep clean. Also good if there were some new saucepans. However, we love this place
Had a lovely stay plenty walks beach not to far away nice mill coffee tea room close by as for the stables good set up well pleased on the down side may need better seating maybe a Sofas
We were a family of 6 and fitted well into Buckingham Cottage. The facilities were very good and the position ideal for the seafront. The only reason I might think again about rebooking was the single toilet which did cause some issues with 6 people! However this was as advertised - so I guess I was forewarned!!
Our stay at Lamorran Lodge worked out really well with our two black labradors - the driveway and garden are totally secure so there were no worries about them getting out onto the road. The accommodation was good - the only downside being that there is no view - but you can't have everything!
This was our second stay at Charlie's, and it remains a really comfortable, well equipped, spacious holiday cottage, in a fabulous position up above St Mawes harbour. Stunning sea views from the front windows, and a pretty patio and garden at the back.
Well equipped and comfortable cottage on the square in the lovely village of Portscatho. The cottage has everything you could wish for and whilst it may not be the ultra-modern finish that some expect, it is very welcoming and spotlessly clean. The parking space provided was very handy as it can get quite busy in the square. As the cottage is dog friendly, worth noting that dogs are banned from the beaches in the village itself but the beautiful dog-friendly Porthcurnick beach is only a 10 min walk on the coast path. We loved our stay here and would definitely recommend the cottage.
The 2019 refurbishment has made a big improvement to South Cottage and we found it very comfortable. We love the position and the glorious views. A most enjoyable stay again.
We had a lovey holiday at Tyg Wyn and there are some fantastic aspects to the house including the beautiful bathrooms, comfortable bedrooms and big kitchen. However, we struggled to find enough sensible sized glasses, plates that weren't chipped or plastic, and decent mugs. This is so easy to get right with a trip to Ikea and some fresh glasses etc but felt that the collection of garage sherry glasses, some disposable plastic ones and a couple of pint glasses from the local pub let the place down a bit. We loved the homely feel to the place with nice furniture, paintings on the walls, jigsaws...more
Perfect location in st mawes just up from the beach. Great front garden space and lovely living space. Ideal for family holidays
Our third visit to this lovely location. The flat is ideally placed for the amenities of Portscatho and cliff/beach walks. Wonderful sea view from the living room. Very dog friendly. We shall be back hopefully. Such a relaxing and peaceful place to be.
One thing we would suggest is that the mattresses need an update as they were very uncomfortable! It let down the stay in the property which is a really lovely location and a very pretty building. We talked about leaving early because of how uncomfortable the beds were.
We had a lovely few days in Powder Cottage. Ruan Lanihorne is a quiet hamlet and a short walk took us to the River Fal where there was an abundance of wildlife. The cottage was very clean and offered everything we needed including a lovely AGA. We didn't light the log burner as it wasn't cold but it looked very inviting. The garden was full of apples and was secure for our dog. We had an excellent meal at the King's Head just a few meters from the cottage. St Mawes is an easy drive away and on the way we thoroughly enjoyed the Da Bara Bakery.
My husband and I, along with our 2 year old had a very relaxing stay at Avalen. Having parking was a massive bonus. The location is perfect to walk to Portscatho, or in the other direction Porthcurnick beach. The bungalow was very comfortable and had everything we needed. It had recently been re-decorated, the paint smell was still a little strong but wasn't too much of a problem. My husband enjoyed running from the bungalow in an evening to St Anthony Head, while I sat in the front conservatory enjoying the view and reading. We visited The Lost Gardens of Heligan, The Eden Project, Da Bara B...more
Amazing location & pretty cottage though tired in places. Acknowledged leak on arrival following a heavy storm, & though it stopped with the rain, it wasn’t fixed during our stay.
We have stayed here over the last few years and always had a good stay. The view from the lounge is beautiful and we have spent many an hour watching the boats which is so relaxing. Well done with the chairs, were pleased to see these! Always a good location for the village and walking up the hill after dinner in the evening was just what we needed to walk off our meal! Lovely house and location.
The property was ideal for us being close to shops, pubs etc and with a readily accessible parking space. Views from the house were better than expected. Photo of the terrace area doesn't do it justice. Minor quibbles were the lack of additional rubbish bags, kitchen and toilet rolls. The main bedroom feels slightly cramped with an unnecessary wash basin and chair. Minor points though as we had a lovely time and were very pleased overall and we have already recommended the house.
Positives: Impeccably clean Well provisioned Beautifully decorated and accessorised home from home Excellent customer service from both the cleaner and Portscatho holidays Negatives: Broken sink in the upstairs bathroom that wasn’t fixed despite being told it would be by the cleaner Fridge stopped working but a replacement was ordered and delivered within 48 hours of notifying of the problem Tricky to unload belongings from car with nearest access a few metres away Overall, an enjoyable stay in a lovely house with friendly service and support.
We had a great holiday in Spry's Cottage. You cant really get a better location, quiet, easy to get to shops and beach, and a sea view. The Cottage is well equipped, and having an aga is an added bonus.
We enjoyed our stay at Lan-y-mor, & felt comfortable there. Bathroom,Ensuite,Kitchen was v.good. although the Bathroom needs re-decorating, particularly the paint work. It seems this part of the house has been updated recently, and the owner may be doing it in stages. The sea views are excellent. There was no cleaners left at all, i.e. toilet or hob cleaner. The hob was desperate for a clean. The oven was dirty where people had not wiped it out. The pictures need re-newing. It would be handy if the owner had an outside contractor to clean the oven every so often, even if the price we...more
