Cosy "home from home"
One Old School Cottages is a warm and cosy "home from home" with everything supplied you could possibly need and everything beautifully clean. We were a party of 3 adults and a dog and the accommodation suited our needs perfectly, with plenty of room to spread out.
We walked down the hill into Portscatho every morning and along the coast path to Porthcurnick beach so that our dog could have a swim (at the dog friendly beach all year round) which she thoroughly enjoyed.
Plenty to do and see in the area, we particularly enjoyed Mevagissey and the short trip across the creek on the King Harry Ferry to Trelissick Gardens.
Shop in Portscatho very well stocked and The Boathouse and Tatems provided us with takeaway pizzas and burgers.
FEEDBACK ON HOLIDAY COTTAGE
A VERY CLEAN COMFORTABLE COTTAGE, WELL EQUIPPED WITH EVERYTHING NEEDED. BEDS COMFORTBLE AND VERY IMPRRESSED WITH MATTRESS/PILLOW PROTECTORS PROVIDED.
Simple property in a great location.
The property was ideal for the family but I think that bath towels would have been better as the ones provided were too small, especially for my husband. I also think that dishwasher tablets should be provided within the cost. Also there was not really enough hot water for a family of five. On numerous occasions I had to boil the kettle in order to wash up.
Glad you thought the cottage ideal for the family and thank you for your comments. My apologies that there were insufficient dishwasher tablets. You should have been supplied with more than enough for the week and we have reported this to the managing agent. Also very disappointed to hear about insufficient hot water. The managing agent is based just yards away and if notified would have been able to deal that problem.
Lovely house in quiet location near delightful beaches
A nice house of good size in a pleasant village on the Roseland. Plenty of room for six people and a nice garden which is enclosed by walls so that our little dog couldn't escape.
we had a lovely stay. Not allowed on near beach with dogs , but walked 10 minutes and found one that allowed them. A few nice little pubs. The cottage was comfortable and the garden was small but ok for our needs. When we arrived late evening the house was cold,storage heaters need to be put on the night before guests arrive. As they heat up overnight.
Glad you had a lovely time. The beach in Portscatho does not allow dogs from Easter until September but fortunately it is the only beach on the Roseland where there are any such restrictions re dogs. Apologies that the heating had not been turned on prior to your arrival, it certainly should have been.
Lovely house in quiet location near delightful beaches
A first class house that we have stayed in before. Plenty of room with drawing room, dining room, kitchen, utility room, two bathrooms, three bedrooms and a conservatory. A lovely location near St. Mawes and with nice beaches within walking distance, if up a steep hill. Also the house is very near The Royal Standard pub which is dog friendly and has a nice garden. Overall there is nothing you can say bad about this delightful house.
Portscatho and its neighbouring village of Gerrans are located on the eastern coast of the Roseland Peninsula, Cornwall, overlooking the dramatic Gerrans Bay. A truly peaceful waterside village, Portscatho is a lovely place for a holiday. There are miles of coastal and countryside footpaths to explore, particularly along St Anthony's Head. Portscatho was once a busy fishing harbour, but now it has become a haven for artists due to the striking light which is particularly good in the morning sun. More than anything, Portscatho is a relaxing place. The beaches such as Porthcurnick, Towan and Porthbeor are simply idyllic and these are only minutes from the village. With a superb local butchers shop, 2 great little pubs and a well stocked local store, Portscatho and Gerrans are a lovely place to spend a holiday.
The Roseland Peninsula is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and forms one of the finest sections of Cornwall's South Coast. From Mevagissey to St Mawes and bordered by the Fal Estuary to the west, the Roseland Peninsula has been drawing visitors for years with its splendid coastline, unique gardens, historic villages and superb sailing waters. With The Lost Gardens of Heligan and The Eden Project in one direction and Falmouth and the National Maritime Museum in the other, the Roseland is brimming with places to visit and things to do.
St Mawes Castle, built by Henry VIII in the 16th century sits on Castle Point at the mouth of the River Fal. At the top of St Mawes, Lamorran Gardens house a wonderful collection of tropical plants.
St Just-in-Roseland has arguably the most photographed church in Cornwall. The 13th century church sits quietly tucked away on the edge of the creek.
The Veryan Roundhouses are a must see, on the way to Nare Head, where you will find the most spectacular views of Gerrans Bay. The little village of Portloe nestles in lovely valley and is one of Cornwall's quintessential spots.
The Roseland Inn at Philleigh is a 16th century pub just waiting for you to visit.
The most popular thing to do though on the Roseland is simply to walk and enjoy some of Cornwall's most beautiful coastline. Events on the Roseland reach fever point in August when sailing regattas, carnivals, fayres and fun days take place all over the Roseland and the waters of the Carrick Roads. It is a memorable place for many people who return year after year to enjoy the magic of this beautiful place.
