Customer testimonials

‘Another amazing week at Sammyshute. Unforgettable time with the girls playing on the beach here and kayaking in the sea. Best cream tea ever at the Tresanton in St. Mawes, and finally got to the famous Hidden Hut. Didn’t expect crab linguine on a Cornwall beach!’
From 2016 Visitors Book, Oct 2016
‘Thank you for our holiday memories. The kids jumping off the harbour wall in Portscatho, our Idle Diva cocktails at the Idle Rocks, and the outdoor theatre at Trelissick. Amy loved the Dog and Hog village show at Philleigh, and her cooking lesson at Philleigh Way Cookery School. The sailing course at St. Mawes Sailing Sailing Club's Junior Sail Training was fantastic. Bob was very patient and kind.’
From 2016 Visitors Book, Oct 2016

Sammyshute occupies a secluded plot just back from the coast path with outstanding views across Gerrans Bay. The large, south facing, sunroom has comfortable sofas and there are few better places to while away an afternoon with the yachts crossing the horizon and ships further out to sea. The large garden provides plenty of space to let children play, with a spacious lawn and plenty of mature trees and shrubs. The house is private and secluded, with only a couple of neighbouring properties in this exclusive part of the beautiful Roseland Peninsula.

Sammyshute is situated in Rosevine which is just a 5 minute drive from Portscatho or about 10 minutes to St Mawes. Just a short walk along the lane can be found the Michelin starred restaurant at Driftwood where you can sample the excellent cuisine of Chef Chris Eden. There is also The Rosevine with its relaxed bistro style food and wonderful views. The Rosevine also has a swimming pool which is ideal to keep the kids entertained on rainy days! Just a little further is beautiful Porthcurnick Beach and the famous Hidden Hut beach cafe. Sandy, safe and so friendly, this beach is a firm favourite for many who visit the Roseland.

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. A truly magnificent part of Cornwall, the Roseland Peninsula is a wonderful place to spend a memorable holiday. 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 with lovely views down into the Harbour. 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 a 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.

Portscatho and its neighbouring village of Gerrans 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 and Towan 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.
