A lovely holiday home in a hilly location with fabulous views.
Lovely layout and well equipped. Property needs some TLC but doesn't effect your stay.
Good dog friendly garden and nice outdoor seating area.
Village pub is a must and shop has everything you could ask for.
Coastal walks from the front door are beautiful and the hidden hut is a perfect pitstop!!
Holiday at ellenglaze portscatho
Lovely cottage, great views
Lots of nice places to walk
Lovely house in a beautiful location. Sea views from most of the rooms. Fully equipped with everything you need for a family stay.
Lovely week away
Myself and my other half along with the two dogs had a lovely week away at Ellenglaze. The cottage was perfect and very good facilities.
Location was great with some nice pubs in the village and the local beach being dog friendly was ideal.
The information the owners provided before our stay was very useful.
Comfortable Cottage with great views
This is a great cottage- comfortable, well equipped with great sea views. It is well located with easy access to the village and the coastal paths.
Generally this is a very well appointed property in generally good condition ideal for 2 couples or a family and in a lovely part of Cornwall. A few minor niggles were that we could have done with some instructions on how to work the high tech ceramic type hob and also some instructions for the TV netficks etc which we could not get to work properly ( perhaps it just needed some batteries in the remote) . My only other suggestion would be that the carpet in the living room could do with an end of season shampooing and that a couple of tiles in the fire surround were cracked.
Generally i would not hesitate to recommend this property,this is a lovely property with some amazing views in a lovely part of Cornwall.
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.
Just to the west of Portscatho is St Mawes which is one of the finest waterside villages in Cornwall. Situated overlooking an idyllic bay on the eastern side of the famous Falmouth Estuary, St Mawes has one of the mildest climates in Britain due to its proximity to the Gulf Stream. The sea is at the heart of the village and has helped to shape St Mawes from the little fishing village to the fashionable holiday destination that is so popular with visitors. A mecca for boating enthusiasts, St Mawes is a particularly popular sailing centre. Weekly club racing, village regattas and larger events are commonplace on the superb waters of the bay all through the summer. St Mawes has so much to offer the visitor. St Mawes Castle was built by Henry VIII and is a splendid place to take in the views of the Carrick Roads.
There are miles of coastal and countryside walks to take in and some idyllic beaches on which to relax and watch the world go by. The little Place ferry takes visitors to explore St Anthony's Head or there are regular ferries to Falmouth. Being situated on the seafront, the village is also known for the restaurants and pubs that serve superb fish and shellfish dishes all year round. There is a selection of pubs & hotels with restaurants (including the renowned Tresanton Hotel) all within easy walking distance. There is a range of shops all within a few minutes' walk including a Cooperative store, Post Office, chemist, butcher, baker and art & clothes shops. The village also has a doctor's surgery and a dentist's surgery.
There are some stunning locations to eat on the Roseland including the Michelin starred Driftwood restaurant on the way down to Rosevine beach where the chef, Chris Eden, and his team deliver a truly special experience, you will obviously need to book this one early. There is also the Hidden Hut located above the field at Rosevine with its eclectic menus, convivial atmosphere, bring your own booze and social media driven events list! (Best find them on Facebook to see what is on!) The Hidden Hut has received rave reviews from the local and national press. Slightly further afield are the Nare Hotel and Quarterdeck with fine dining and dramatic views across Gerrans Bay, the world renowned Tresanton Hotel in St Mawes or the newly refurbished Idle Rocks Hotel. On top of this list there are some excellent country pubs in all of the local villages supporting Cornish produce and local beers.
