Chywartha is a delightful property, split over three levels, with views across Gerrans Bay, towards Gull Rock and Nare Head. It has an enclosed garden for those with dogs or children. The entrance opens into the well equipped kitchen / dining room to the rear of the house with short staircase leading up to two bedrooms and down to a further master double bedroom, WC / shower room and the main living area with sliding door into the garden. With good sized rooms this property is ideally suited to a larger family.

From Chywartha it is only a short, five minute walk, down the hill to the pretty little harbour where many artists have taken inspiration due to the superb light and there are a number of delightful little galleries. The Plume of Feathers public house is nestled in the square and serves local ales and good pub grub all year round. Rosevine beach, which is dog friendly all year is just to the east of the village it has beautiful golden sands (at low tide) and is over looked by the increasingly famous Hidden Hut. Before you visit try and get on their social media page and acquire tickets to their special outdoor dining events.

Entrance Level: The entrance is at the rear of the property, and you enter into a small hallway opposite the staircases leading both up and down. Next to the hall is a large, bright, open plan kitchen dining room with fully fitted kitchen units and a dining table that seats eight:
First Floor: The stairs open on to a small landing with doors leading to; a family bathroom with WC and wash hand basin. A twin bedroom with a wardrobe and chest of drawers and sea views across the bay. A larger triple bedroom also with sea views over the bay.
Ground Floor: The stairs open into the main living room that has a floor to ceiling glass wall to make the most of the sea views. There are comfortable sofas and chairs, a decorative fireplace, TV with digital Freeview and DVD player, a sliding door leads out into the enclosed garden. At the bottom of the staircase a door leads to a small hall with doors leading to; the master bedroom with sea views, a 5' double bed, chest of drawers and storage cupboard.

A great base for the week, close to all the amenities in Portscatho. Everything we needed was in Chywartha. It was great to let our dog out and know he was in a safe enclosed garden.

David Laidler

This is a really lovely holiday home with superb views over the sea. Just lovely having my morning coffee in my jamas watching the changing sea, losing the little island in the mist and next minute see it appear again, the sunshine through the clouds dappling the surface and watching the white horses form on windy days...perfect! The accommodation is roomy and extremely comfortable and very well equipped. The only downside is that the roads are very steep in Portscatho and would be difficult for people less mobile, but then most of Cornwall seems to be quite hilly!!!

Frank Butler

We really enjoyed our stay at Chywartha, the location was great with a lovely sea view, and only a short walk to the beach, shop and the local pub. We had plenty of room and the and were very comfortable. We would certainly stay at Chywartha and the only slight issue we had was the dog didn't like the wooden stairs between the kitchen area and living roo.

Christopher Sayer

This was perfect. It is close enough to beach to carry your kayak. We had a magical time definitely coming back. We love visiting Cornwall and do so every year. But I think we found some where which suits are family perfect. Went to beach every day for swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, rock pooling and just chilling. Lovely sheltered bay. The cottage is fabulous. It has every thing you need and more. The views are amazing.

Margaret Monni

A comfortable, warm house with everything you could need. The views from the sitting room and bedrooms were fantastic. I would definitely stay there again.

Ellie Foote

Gorgeous sea views from the house. Walking distance to the harbour and the near beach, Porthcurnick. Lovely peaceful cottage, well equipped kitchen with plenty of crockery for the 7 of us that stayed. Lovely and clean too. Would definitely go again.

Jackie Street

We were delighted with the overall location of the property and the partial sea views however the rear mature trees could do with cutting back to enhance the view and the fence at the bottom of the garden could do with filling in to block the view of the car park from the garden. Also on arrival we noticed a great deal of rubbish had piled up, we arrived Friday, bin day is Monday, I would say more than two weeks worth. As a result we had a visit from a rather large rat, this could have been avoided if the housekeepers had helped dispose of the rubbish build up. On arrival the property smelt damp, there was a large damp patch in the kitchen, we lost the smell by burning candles and airing the kitchen but it needs sorting.


A well equipped comfortable house in a super location. If we head to that area again I'm sure we'd stay.

Luzia Angermayr

We found a very nice , friendly and helpful staff there. They helped quick and immediately (for example we arrived too soon, but the 2 guys and the lady made an earlier entry possible. than the teacooker broke and the man brought us very quick a new one....everything was fine. and we could not find the location and a guy picked us up as quick as possible....so yes great service the whole 5 days!

Hilde Kluschewski

A little bit dingy, cobwebs in the sleeping rooms; in the cupboards a Little bit unclean with spots .

Ian Stokes

We had everything we needed for a family get together, there was plenty of accommodation for 6 adults and a child without feeling crowded. The view of the sunrise at the horizon was fantastic.The town was only a short walk away with a well equipped local store and butchers. Had some great walks along the coast in the evenings without needing a car. It was our first trip to this part of Cornwall and I'm sure it won't be our last. The excellent views from the garden would be improved by cutting the shrubs back - when sitting in the garden only one chair had a view.,

Gavin Power

Wonderful location and very well appointed house. Everything excellent, great place to base yourself for walks and exploring the Roseland and Lizard peninsular.

Christine Hughes

A lovely house close to all the lovely beaches and walks of Roseland, a great base that was spacious for us as we were only two plus two dogs. Think it would benefit from a double bed upstairs but that is just a preference. Very comfortable would definitely go again.

Michael Gallie

Very good welcome instructions. We had a very pleasant stay in the house which is in a quiet village location. The accommodation provided plenty of space, very comfortable seating and beds, and all the necessary equipment to make for a very relaxing stay. Very nice and reasonable pubs nearby to eat out as well. Ideal for exploring the south coast we also made extensive use of the King Harry ferry. This helped bypass the busy roads around Truro. One small comment, a shower in family bathroom would be welcome.

Lynda Goodacre

Great cottage with lovely location. Large kitchen and comfortable sitting room. Love Portscatho coastal walks my dog loved his holiday

Simon McWhirter

This was our first stay in Portscatho, and we were very pleasantly surprised. We booked late to go just after Christmas, and had a great break in this very pretty Cornish town. The house was in good condition and very comfortable. It was just what we were looking for being just a few minutes walk from the town and the beach. We were able to take the dog and walk her on the beach out of season. There was a shop in the town which sold everything we needed, and there we good options to eat out. Shame we didn't make the Hidden Hut which has great reviews, but did find the Coffee shack on the beach which is a must. We were only there for 3 night but had a really good break.

Michael James

A very comfortable, well situated home. A fantastic coastline to explore. Only issue we had was some intermittent wifi but to be honest that was no bad thing! Hope to return someday.


Somewhat disappointed that after checking that the garden was enclosed, our small inquisitive dog almost got out of the garden on the first day and we spent the week having to put him on the lead every time he went out into the garden - the fencing (wide square mesh) and gate with gap beneath are OK for a larger dog but not a small one. The double bedroom mattress is definitely in need of replacing - a very uncomfortable bed. There was also a damp smell in this room. Overall cleanliness was ok, but a dirty moldy yoghurt put was behind the kitchen radiator and I don't think behind any of the radiators have been cleaned in a long while. A well equipped kitchen with all you need for a self catering holiday.

Heather Evans

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this comfortable family house in a superb location. The house has lovely sea views and is within easy walking distance of the coastal footpath, beaches and creeks. We highly recommend this house and would love to return.


Chywartha is a lovely family holiday home in the beautiful village of Portscatho. Local shops include A R Day Butchers, Ralph's Store and two good pubs Royal Standard and Plume of Feathers (both do food). Lots of places to visit from Portscatho - Lost Gardens of Heligan near Mevagissey is well worth a visit (you will need a whole day so much to see), Falmouth and Truro.

David Fell

Chywartha is a pleasant house with great views of the sea from the back windows and garden. The kitchen is well equipped with the welcome inclusion of scales and a sharp knife although it was a disappointment that the majority of the crockery was chipped and there was a poor selection of mugs. Both bathrooms are large although the upstairs one would definitely benefit from the addition of a shower either over the bath or in a separate cubicle. The wifi worked extremely well. Overall it provided a good base for our three generations of family for a short break and the provision of outdoor furniture gave superb views over the sea.

Graham Boddy

Our stay at Chywartha as a family (6 of us plus dog) to celebrate a special birthday was very successful due in no small part to the house itself which was very comfortable, spacious and well equipped with wonderful sea views. Portscatho is delightful and breakfast at Tatam's overlooking the sea and visits to the Hidden Hut at Porthcurnick Beach were truly enjoyable.
