Christopher from Bideford stayed at Ellenglaze for 5 nights in October
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.

Gill from Bristol stayed at Ellenglaze for 7 nights in June
We and our dogs had a lovely holiday in Portscatho, made even better with our stay at Ellenglaze. It has a lovely enclosed garden and beautiful views from most windows. It is a very well equipped house and we enjoyed our stay in it. We love Porthcurnick Beach and the Hidden Hut. We most definitely hope to stay again.

Shane from Northwich stayed at Ellenglaze for 7 nights in May
Thanks for a great stay on the Roseland, close to our favourite beach!! The house was very comfortable and suited us well. Just a short ride to St. Mawes and close to the King Harry Ferry, which meant we could easily get to all our favourite places.

Ian from Hertford stayed at Ellenglaze for 7 nights in March
Visited for one week mid-April, which was a first time staying in the Roseland peninsula. Portscatho provided a good base from which to explore and walk along the beautiful coast here. Took our dog and found everybody very welcoming towards her. Although Portscatho itself has limited beach there are several great ones nearby. The house has a well-equipped modern kitchen, and a lovely view over the bay from both the ground floor lounge and the upstairs bedrooms. The village shop is well provided plus the local pub served good food. Only suggestion would be to provide a guest introduction leaflet, which could be brief but contain essential information such as the WiFi password (which we finally located in the guest book left for comments). The owners were friendly and helpful. Overall an enjoyable stay.

Robert from Cambridge stayed at Ellenglaze for 7 nights in January
Ellenglaze was an ideal base for a week's break in Cornwall at the end ofJanuary. The house itself is well located, five minutes' walk from the centre of Portscatho with its pub, shop and harbour. There is a small but attractive garden, which is well fenced-in and suitable for dogs. The sea views are fantastic, especially from the upstairs windows, but also from the living room and the front garden. For just two people it was very spacious. There are some lovely beaches hereabouts, which were great for dog-walking at this time of year, but the lanes are narrow and parking limited so I don't now how they would be in summer! The scenery is lovely, both along the coast and around the Carrick Roads.

David from Chesterfield stayed at Ellenglaze for 7 nights in July
The property is on the end of a row with several other properties with the most fantastic views overlooking the sea. The walk into the village is on a short hill but nothing too strenuous.The village is not too busy with an excellent local shop and pub. There are several beaches nearby with Truro around 30 minutes away. The property has An excellent kitchen with all amenities required and has two bedrooms on the first floor and one on the ground. The bathroom on the upper floor does not have a shower attached and the handheld one in the property is broken. There are two small sets of stairs. The property was generally clean but could do with a touch up in places, the sofa for example is stained and there are a few marks on the walls. we did have to buy an air freshener as the smell of dog was very noticeable on the furniture and carpet in the living room. The only other issue is the size of the bin outside - make sure you double bag your rubbish as there is a chance foxes will rip apart the bags in the night! Generally speaking the property is in a great location and the caretakers were very helpful in finding us a high chair and allowing us in at 2.30 as opposed to 4. The property is worth staying in, however will be far far better with a bit more TLC.

Julian from Bristol stayed at Ellenglaze for 7 nights in March
This was our first stay in Portscatho and also the Roseland, after many years of visiting Cornwall and staying around Falmouth. We booked quite late but were really pleasantly surprised with the area, village and of course the home. The house was in good condition, after seeming to have a recent refit in the kitchen, the kitchen was so wonderfully equipped with the sharpest and nicest knives I've had the pleasure of using when on holiday. Everything was provided for and the appointment of the appliances was very much appreciated (washer and dishwasher). It was unusual to have two flights of stairs to get to the shower room but if we enjoyed baths more a perfect one was appointed on the same floor as the bedrooms. The views were what made this home though, every day a different view with the sun, wind, clouds etc. Views from the downstairs were ok but when you woke up every morning to the sun and the waves it was just a pleasure. There was a shop in the village that sold just about everything you could imagine, lovely pasties, a butchers and also a pretty gift shop and gallery. The pub was nice and welcoming but as we'd arranged the food for the week (yes Waitrose do deliveries) we just partook of a couple of drinks. The house had a lovely enclosed garden so we were able to let our dog out off the lead. The beach is just a short walk down the hill with a Coffee Shack, there are also lovely walks along the coast path and the Hidden Hut is a good find for some lovely food and drinks.

Really great week.
The Smith Family, Winchester, Jul 2016
Each time we came back from a day out in Cornwall it was like coming home in Ellenglaze. What a pleasant house with enough room for five adults and a little one. Thanks for your hospitality, the presents which welcomed us and for taking care of the cot and the high chair. All the ingredients for a super holiday in Cornwall.
the de Vries family, Ooslzaan, Holland, Jun 2016

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.
