Delia from Stafford stayed at Shorelines for 13 nights in May
A wonderful little cottage in a perfect location. Shorelines offer everything you could possibly need for a holiday in the way of comfort and convenience. It's located on the SW coastal path, for those who want to park their car and not use it for the duration and opposite a very friendly pub! We will certainly be returning.

Caroline from Bristol stayed at Shorelines for 7 nights in April
We've just returned from a fabulous holiday in portscatho staying at shorelines. When we arrived at the cottage everything was clean and the decor was nice with a big modern kitchen, clean appliances, plenty of crockery, cook wear, cutlery, etc. Cornwall cottages had left us some milk, biscuits and toilet rolls which was nice. Bathroom and bedrooms were very clean, with crisp white bed linen. The negative however which has been mentioned in previous reviews, was the bed, we felt we were sleeping on the side of a hill and the first few nights were spent trying not to roll out the bed! The village is small and peaceful with a couple of shops. We did have a tesco shop delivered but also made use of the local shop which sold everything! A few art galleries and a gift shop. Had a few pints in the plume of feathers, a bustling busy type of pub which was very nice and friendly and also the harbour club which was quiet, staff very friendly, with comfy chairs and a lovely terrace looking out to sea, both dog friendly. We also visited the beach, a short walk along the coast (dog friendly) and ate at the hidden hut which was scrumptious. Also visited with our dogs, the gardens of heligan (fantastic), st mawes (ate in the st mawes) hotel, st Anthony lighthouse and coastal walks, the church at st just on the rose land with sub-tropical gardens, Truro shops via the King Harry ferry. Overall we had a fab holiday visiting a part of Cornwall we had never been to before and shorelines was a lovely cottage in an excellent position to base ourselves. A memorable holiday! Thank you Shorelines.

Superb stay, everything perfect. If we had to be picky it would be a larger sofa and a larger t.v. would be good !

Virginia from London stayed at Shorelines for 3 nights in April
We had a wonderful few days staying at Shorelines. The house has been finished to a very high standard and was extremely comfortable. The position in the centre of the village and a few minutes walk to the beach is perfect. Many thanks.

Stephanie from Colchester stayed at Shorelines for 5 nights in March
We had a lovely stay in portscatho. Wonderful cottage, well equipped and fantastic location. Much more spacious than we imagined and decorated/furnished to a high standard. Just 2 minor issues that prevented an excellent review across the board: sofa is small, very low and quite uncomfortable. Double bed needs new mattress (or a new king size bed would be better!). Neither of these things spoiled the holiday, but cottage was 9/10 for us instead of 10/10 because of these 2 things. All that said, we're planning to return next year :)

David from Wellington stayed at Shorelines for 9 nights in January
Lovely cottage in a great location, having a pub, butchers and a shop within a 1 minute walk. bonus having super fast broad band if you are like me had to work some of your stay. sofa in lounge not that comfortable, but cottage very tastefully decorated with good facilities. parking comes with this cottage, which would think would be essential in the summer months

Andrew from stayed at Shorelines for 3 nights in December
Really lneed very cottage. Left after 3 days wanting to stay longer. Lovely location short walk down to beach, friendly village pub just opposite. The cotttage was cosey, clean nicely decorated, with everything we wanted. Only minor point was it would be nice if some firewood had been left for the log burner. But overall great let - highly recommended.

Sophie from York stayed at Shorelines for 4 nights in December
great place to stay, local cafe and shops excellent and nearby beaches great for our dog. Cottage is excellent, the allocated parking space is tight as mentioned on other reviews but my Nissan Qashqai fitted in fine. Only minor complaints were the lack of any logs to use in the log burner when we arrived. We got there quite late and the shops locallly were shut so were unable to buy any and could not use it on the first night. Also we were there at Xmas so would have been nice for the house to have been decorated with a tree etc...it does not need to resemble Oxford Street lights but just a little tree with a simple row of lights would have been nice.

Alan from Salisbury stayed at Shorelines for 5 nights in December
This is a very nice cottage set in the middle of the village a few metres from the sea. The cottage is kept in a good condition with all the facilities you would need. However, the parking is very tight at the rear of the property so we parked in a nearby road which was fine in December but probably difficult in summer. There is a shop and butcher a few doors away catering for most needs. We did not use the pub opposite which seemed to be mainly for drinking as the menu was quite limited. Excellent fish and chip van which visits the village on Friday evenings. Overall, a very enjoyable stay in a comfortable cottage.

Richard from Twickenham stayed at Shorelines for 4 nights in November
A comfier bed and sofa stopped this property from being excellent all round. To improve customer service would have been good to have stocked up on toilet roll, washing up liquid and logs for fire. Had a great time though.

Beautifully equipped, decorated and located, with the sea just metres from the door, plus a welcoming pub with good food opposite and shop steps away, this cottage is ideal. The coastal walks are stunning and Portscatho is ideally situated to visit all of Cornwall. Thumbs up!

Dianne from Wellington stayed at Shorelines for 4 nights in October
We were delighted when we arrived at Shorelines. It was very comfortable,tastefully decorated and spotless. On the worktop was a welcoming postcard with a contact number, There was a packet of shortbread biscuits, teabags and milk in the fridge...all greatfully accepted after our long journey down to cornwall. Parking of the car at the back of the property was very tight, but managed without too much difficulty. To be fair we were expecting this as it was stated in the cottage details that parking was tight. My car is a Vauxhall Meriva. Portscatho is a lovely village, a good base to explore the many picturesque coves and creeks.

Patrick from Haywards Heath stayed at Shorelines for 7 nights in September
Stayed at Shorelines in September and couldn't have wished for a better cottage. Location was perfect, right in the heart of the village. The cottage itself was beautiful, immaculate, spacious and charming. Everything we needed had been provided. Décor and furnishings were first class. Beds very comfortable, sofa a little on the small side, everything you needed and more in the kitchen. Loved the window seats where you could watch the world go by. Surprisingly quiet, little traffic and very well behaved seagulls. Due to weather not being particularly bright didn't get to sit in garden but very quaint and gated so the dog was secured. Close to pub, take away pizza, pastries and coffee shack and local shop. Parking space at back of cottage was challenging, suitable for small or average car. Plenty of parking elsewhere in the village. Locals very friendly. Very relaxing, enjoyable stay, would highly recommend.

Guest from Bradford-on-Avon stayed at Shorelines for 7 nights in September
This is very spacious for a 2 bed holiday property. Tastefully decorated and well equipped and perfectly positioned in the village for the beach. We found the parking to be an excellent addition, we have stayed in a few properties in Portscatho before and liked that we didn't have to worry about our car for the week. We did feel the cottage would benefit from having curtains up at the rear french doors so that the lounge/dining area was completely private at night. The sofa was comfortable but a little on the small side for a couple to spend any length of time watching the TV. Our 2 year old loved the sunroom/conservatory and used it as a playroom/craft area as the table was a perfect height for her. Would definitely stay again and recommend to others.

Guest from Berkhamsted stayed at Shorelines for 7 nights in August
Family of 4 + dog really enjoyed Shorelines. It was beautifully clean on arrival and contained everything we needed. The location is fabulous - a stones throw fro the harbour beach and the coastal paths. two small gripes: there could have been more crockery and cutlery - 4 of each meant we either had to put the dishwasher on after every meal, or wash up after every meal (which negates the purpose of providing a dishwasher). the lack of crockery/cutlery suprised us because all other kitchen stuff - pans, cooking utensils etc etc were in very rich supply! There was no storage space for dry food in the kitchen - all the available cupboard space was taken up with kitchen equipment. I'm not sure what the solution is here. In a self catering cottage you need somewhere to put your food! That said, neither of these things spoiled our holiday in any way.

Michael from Scarborough stayed at Shorelines for 10 nights in July
Yes we liked the property and the location.The settee is too small and the tv is minute.There is no excuse for these faults in 2016. We would come again but the parking space is awful for a big car.We thought the fridge freezer should have been in the kitchen (pantry cupboard) because bending down to use the integrated one is too difficult for "older" people (us).

This pretty bijou cottage in the heart of the delightful harbour village of Portscatho, just off the village square, sits opposite the Plume of Feathers pub and about a minute's walk from Tatums Beach.

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.
