Anna from Surbiton stayed at Spindrift for 14 nights in July
Lots of lovely things to do in and around Portscatho. We loved the new hut down by the harbour where we had delicious coffee and croisants overlooking the harbour. The Thirstea at Towen beach is fantastic with such nice people. We love staying in Spindrift as we love the cottage and it's location. There are so many great walks on the doorstep. It's home from home.

Guest from Peterborough stayed at Spindrift for 7 nights in July
We had a good holiday in this property for a sensible price. I don't want to be critical but my comments are:- 1) Friday is not a good day to travel a long distance on the roads. It is a pity more places do not cater for mid week changeovers. We had long delays going in both directions. 2) The TV in the property is quite small and slow to respond. 3) Some more cutlery (especially knives and spoons) would help make better use of the dishwasher. Also the large bowls are not the best shape for the dishwasher.

David from Melton Mowbray stayed at Spindrift for 7 nights in June
Lovely place to stay. Close to Port Scartho which has all amenities you will need, shop open 7-7, café, pub and the best coffee shop in the world. The owners were great, one morning we had a problem with the hot water, it was sorted in a flash with no fuss or bother. The property is very comfortable with everything you could need. The bedrooms are very spacious and there are 2 shower rooms. We cant recommend this property highly enough.

Richard from Gillingham stayed at Spindrift for 7 nights in June
Spendrift was very comfortable, and very well equipped to ensure a perfect holiday. (New mattresses ensured a good nights sleep). Beautiful quiet location overlooking fields and with distant sea views. The owns came down and welcomed us in and checked to see we were happy with everything midweek. Would highly recommend this property and hope to return sometime soon.

Andrew from Knaresborough stayed at Spindrift for 7 nights in May
We arrived at Spindrift very late after a long journey and directions and property instructions were clear. The location is fab and the property perfect for us, a family of 4. The owners came to see us on our first day to ask how we were getting on and let us know they were available should we need any assistance or advice on the area. Would recommend highly and hope to come back next year.

Ross from Wallingford stayed at Spindrift for 7 nights in August
When we first booked Spindrift, we wondered if it was 'cottagy' enough for a holiday in Cornwall. In reality, it was ideal. There is ample space and practicality for a week's stay.. We were a family of of two adults and two children, and this was great for us. We really liked it. In the village of Portscatho nearby, there is little parking space, but Spindrift has plenty of space for your car, right outside the door. You can either walk or drive the two minute journey to the village. It's quiet and has good views across the fields to the sea in the background. On the minus side, we could have done with the owner coming to see us mid week, rather than us going to knock on their door. Spindrift needs a few improvements, some of which are minor, but do make a difference. The kitchen needs some oven gloves (there's nothing to remove hot items with, from the oven), the bathrooms (there are two en suites, which is great) need soap, and the biggest issue by far...The mattresses need changing (they are are way too soft and give no support to your back). Despite these things, we would definitely consider staying at Spindrift again.

Guest from Frome stayed at Spindrift for 5 nights in April
Great rural location with some sea view from the garden. Very private and peaceful. We loved our stay at spindrift, parking and space to relax away from the busy villages was a bonus. No welcome pack provided or tea bags, it would have been really useful as we were arriving very late at night.

Guest from W Wickham stayed at Spindrift for 5 nights in May
We know the Roseland area very well & first time of staying in this particular accommodation. A very nice location with views over fields & beyond the sea. At the rear was a well stocked utility room. Quite a busy area beyond that with cars coming & going. You didn't need to bring the 'kitchen sink' but cushions would have been welcome for people with bad backs & sorely missed a hairdryer. Had a good hunt for one. Windows/frames need a good clean to wipe away spiders/cobwebs together with cleaning the inside lights in bathrooms where dead flies collect. We had a couple of issues & tried to contact owners/CC but to no avail. Tried the owners again but found our mob no. had been blocked. Not very helpful. Dog's mess is an issue & cleared it up regularly - do not know the dog's owners. Lovely views, good for visiting the area & generally well stocked with all your needs.

Guest from Solihull stayed at Spindrift for 7 nights in November
Spindrift provides clean and comfortable accommodation, with 2 en-suite bedrooms, overlooking fields and Gerrans Bay to the Nare in one direction and towards Towan and the English Channel in the other. It is a short walk into Porscatho and to the Coast Path and there are many other easy to moderate wallks in the area. A short drive from St Mawes (walkable if you are keen), it is also centrally placed for touring the beautiful Roseland Peninsula and the many highlights of Cornwall. Over our 3 stays, the owners have proved friendly and helpful and an enjoyable stay is virtually guaranteed.

Guest from Birmingham stayed at Spindrift for 7 nights in June
Found this property via the Internet and booked on impulse. What a gem! The location is excellent for touring and sightseeing And is wonderfully quiet and relaxing. The accommodation exceeded expectations; travelling with an elderly relative two ensuites was a real bonus,brilliant! A warm welcome from the owners who, though on hand, took a back seat so we felt as if it really was 'our home'. Booking was easy and we were even supplied with travel directions.I hope we may be able to make another trip Spindrift in the future. Highly recommended.

Guest from Belper stayed at Spindrift for 7 nights in July
Very quiet and secluded location - just right for relaxing. Only a 10 minute walk to the pubs and restaurants in the village. About a 30 minute or so walk to the nearest beach so we tended to use the car and leave it in the car park, which was then just a few minutes walk away. Ideal location for exploring the Roseland area and this part of Cornwall.

We stayed at Spindrift an attractive Scandinavian style cabin. It is well laid out and comfortable and having both bedrooms en-suite is great. Wifi was good and useful too.It is in a very quiet spot with distant views to the sea and altogether a very relaxing place to holiday. The nearby Royal Standard Inn is a welcoming and well run pub with good food and the general shop in pretty Portscatho has everything you might need. Cornwalls Cottages were easy to deal with and efficient, emails at each stage of the process were clear and concise.

A wonderfully cosy home in an idyllically peaceful haven with glimpses of the sea and coast. Perfect.

A lovely home away from home - beautiful setting and wonderful view.
Wendy & Andrew , Jun 2005

Within easy access to a number of secluded beaches and wonderful rural walks with Gerrans less than half a mile away and Portscatho only a couple of hundred yards further make Spindrift a truly super spot to unwind. What could be better at the end of the day than to relax on the sun deck with a glass of wine and the wonderful smells of dinner cooking on the barbeque whilst looking out over the fields towards the sea?

Spindrift is a well presented 2 bedroom single storey Scandanavian style property. It has the benefit of a quiet rural position with distant sea views over Gerrans Bay. The stunning coastal footpath is only a short distance away and the whole of the Roseland is a great place to enjoy some fabulous walks. It is a convenient location for beaches with Porthbeor, Towan & Porthcurnick all just a short distance away. For sailing, windsurfing & kayaking, there are plenty of facilities at nearby Percuil.

View Larger Map



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. 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. The beaches such as Porthcurnick, Towan and Porthbeor are simply idyllic and these are only minutes from the village. Towan in particular is a quiet sandy beach with wonderful exposed rock pools for youngsters to explore at low tide. There are toilet facilities across from the car park and a path wide enough for prams leading down to the beach.
