Dirty carpets and upholstery
Great location to stay, The Plume of Feathers is a great pub with good food and service.
Upholstery dirty on armchairs and sofa also dirty carpets. Could do with a clean!
Otherwise comfortable with a well equipped kitchen. Not quite Cornish Boutique standard.
The Hidden Hut is fabulous with amazing food well worth a visit.
Not entirely happy
I have never written a review before but I do feel that you probably need the feedback.I was kept awake as it was very noisy outside on the Friday and Saturday nights until after 1.00 am due to the proximity to the Harbour Club. The windows are single glazed and the main bedroom window doesn't close properly. The cottage was clean enough but felt uncared for in that the blinds were broken in the sitting room and bathroom, the shower screen needs replacing, the sofa and chairs were distinctly grubby and one of the lamps in the twin bedded room was broken. I did feel that it was overpriced considering it was only a two bedroomed cottage, in September, and needs some attention. We love Portscatho and have been several times before but will not be staying at Shorelines again.
Another very enjoyable stay at Shorelines
Another very enjoyable stay at Shorelines. A lovely house in a great location - we will be back again.
It was in a good location and had all we needed. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom satisfactory. We didnt find the lounge area that comfortable, the sofa is not easy for 2 people and other chairs not that soft. Odd thing in kitchen that the microwave was nowhere near a plug and had to be placed on the floor to use. Upstairs there was no plug near a mirror to dry hair. I got the impression the owner had not 'lived' in the house, so that items were not well placed. It would have been nice if the outside area was better cared for.
However location made up for it and we like the village and pub, the coffee shop and proximity to the sea and coast path. very good village shop and butchers just next door.
A great little cottage
We booked this for a last minute break at half term. It’s a fabulous cottage, well furnished and equipped. Location wise you have everything you need for a relaxed break.. two great beaches, coffee hut, shop, butchers, a pub and friendly restaurant. I think we’ll definitely be back!
Loved this cottage, the village and the pub!
We loved this cottage and its location. Very comfortable and warm. Excellent kitchen, great shower - set in a great village with fantastic pub (can't recommend highly enough!) and a really super village shop. The car parking is challenging! We would definitely book again!
Portscatho lies on the eastern edge of Cornwall's Roseland Peninsula, from where it boasts wide sweeping views of Gerrans Bay and excellent coastal paths to St Anthony's Head. Porthcurnick, Towan and Porthbeor beaches are mere minutes away and the village of St Mawes is also only a short 10 minute drive.
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 past Towan beach and out to 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 lovely places to spend a holiday.
Ten minutes away you have the Round Houses at Veryan, or St Mawes Castle built by Henry the VIII. You can walk to St Anthony and take in the views from the Headland, right across the bay to the Manacle Rocks, back past the entrance to the Helford River, Maenporth, Falmouth and round to St Mawes. Gerrans Bay is a relatively sheltered bay and is often filled with ships sheltering from the Atlantic, or waiting to go into Falmouth Docks. You never know what you will see moored up. In 2009 a car transporter famously sat just off Pencabe Point for the summer.
