WHITE WASHED COTTAGES AND PICTURE POSTCARD SCENERY WITH LOVELY BEACHES MAKE PORTSCATHO A GREAT PLACE TO ESCAPE TO AT ANY TIME OF YEAR.
Our holiday cottages in Portscatho are set around Portscatho harbour and beach, overlooking Gerrans Bay on the south coast of Cornwall. The pretty villages of Portscatho and Gerrans are in a great location on The Roseland with great acces to the beaches and coastline. Choose from a great selection of Portscatho cottages to make the most of these great villages.
Portscatho is a pretty village set around a traditional harbour. This is a popular holiday destination for visitors to Cornwall because it has retained its true Cornish character and is a great location for holidaymakers with many good facilities. There are numerous Portscatho holiday cottages ranging from quaint fishing cottages to larger houses and apartments, many with sea views. Portscatho is not a particularly large village so wherever you stay you will not be very far from the beaches and other village amenities.
In the square there is a grocery, bakery, a general stores, a butcher, artists gallery, gift shop, post office, The Plume of Feathers Inn (very popular with the locals!), the Harbour Club and The Boathouse restaurant.
Portscatho and Gerrans now merge as one larger village because they are so close together and easily accessible to each other. Gerrans is further from the shoreline on higher ground and hosts ‘The Standard’, a good pub for food and local ales, an estate agents, heritage centre, a fine old church that can be seen for miles, and a petrol station.
In addition to the harbour beach, there are nearby beaches at Pendower, Porthcurnick and Towan together with many coves accessible from the coastal footpath that runs all along the Gerrans Bay foreshore to St Anthony and the lighthouse and to Nare Head. The coast views are simply stunning and in clear weather from the higher ground it is possible to see the Eddystone lighthouse 40 miles up Channel.
