Clipper View has been lovingly renovated by the owners and is an immaculate family home with incredible, unspoilt, views across Gerrans Bay. The accommodation is luxurious with a stunning kitchen diner and separate lounge, both with wood burning stoves, the bay window in the lounge makes the most out of the vista. Upstairs there are two double bedrooms with sea views and a rear aspect twin bedroom all beautifully furnished. To the front of the property is a mature garden and patio which remains in the sun for most of the day and is a perfect spot for a cold glass, a good book and gazing out on the glittering sea.

It is only a short, five minute walk, along the path at the bottom of the garden to the pretty little harbour where many artists have taken inspiration due to the superb light and there are a number of delightful galleries. The Plume of Feathers public house is nestled in the square and serves local ales and good pub food all year round. There is a small beach at low tide and delicious refreshments available during the day from Tatams. 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. The owners of the Hidden Hut have now opened a restaurant in the village itself - Tatams Wood Fired Taverna, located under the Harbour Club - well worth checking it out.

Beautiful location and comfortable cottage but let down by minor comfor details eg comfortable garden furniture Second double bedroom bed much too small

Clipper View is a wonderful home. It was spotlessly clean but even if it hadn’t been we might not have noticed given the incredible view. Portscatho is a delight and we made the most of the beaches, pub, cafe and Tatams. We will be back! Thank you.

We spent a wonderful two weeks at Clipper View. The house is immaculate and it's location is perfect. Two weeks of lovely weather made it the perfect break.

Wonderful, beautifully decorated and equipped, house. Everything you could need for a great stay. Probably the best situated house in the village, with a perfect terrace overlooking the bay. 5 minutes walk to the shop and pub.

Helen Roper

Clipper View is well equipped, very clean and in a very convenient location. It has lovely views over Gerrans Bay

Natasha Wallace

Couldn’t have asked for more! Very homely and a lovely standard of furnishings and decor. Gorgeous views too!

We were a family of 4 adults on holiday in a part of Cornwall we know and love very much. It was our first and hopefully not our last stay at Clipper View. The accommodation is spotlessly clean and equipped with just about everything you could need, all high spec and everything looks brand-new. The view is spectacular and it is a fantastic location for the village, beach and coastal path. We can't recommend this place highly enough.

Alison Dighton

We had a fantastic stay at Clipper View. Everything we could have ever needed was provided and the house was in fantastic condition, not a speck of dust in sight. Quite a few steep steps from the parking space to the door but as the location was so fantastic we didn’t need to use the car at all. 5 minutes walk to the beach and pretty village with pubs, restaurant, cafe, convenience store and butchers. Our 2 year olds had the time of their lives and can’t wait to return!

Helen Roper

A beautiful hotel in a perfect location. Easy access to beaches and the village. Very clean and a well equipped kitchen.


Marvellous week at Portscatho. Peregrine falcons hunting over the cottage in high winds Skylarks in the surrounding fields. The location simply couldn’t be bettered.


Clipper View is a wonderful house in an idyllic location. It’s extremely well equipped, comfortable and furnished to a high standard. The views from the house are stunning whatever the weather. We had a fantastic week and were definitely not ready to leave at the end of our weeks stay.


Our family have been spending holidays in this area since 1989. We really really like it! We were already aware of this property as we have walked past it on many occasions along the coast path, so were aware that it had terraced front and back gardens with associated steps and slopes. This was also made clear on the descriptive literature prior to booking. This did not prove to be any problem for our two grandsons (ages 1 and 3 years) or any of the adults; but we wisely left our 99 year old mother in law back in Sussex! This property was the best equipped and cleanest property in which we have ever stayed. The owners should be congratulated for choosing top quality equipment and furnishings. The management company were meticulous in communicating with us and should we have had any queries or problems, we were quietly confident that a satisfactory conclusion would have been found. As a result we could concentrate in relaxing and enjoying the lovely village of Portscatho and locality. We were blessed with sunshine for the entire week - absolute bliss. Booked up for the same week next year already!

Clipper View is the best holiday home myself and my wife have stayed in so far, and we have stayed in around 15 in the last 2 years. It has been renovated to the highest standards and feels like a luxury and extremely comfortable home, rather than just a holiday home. Highlights in the property include under floor heating, which is extremely effective, the granite worktop in the kitchen feels solid and special, and the sash windows give real character. The kitchen is fully equipped to stay for an extended period. Then we have the terrace, which sits on an elevated position, looking down to the sea and the selling point of this place. The greatest feature of all is the location. We have been searching for a cliff top view and this one is the best so far. It can not be over estimated how good this view is. The sound of the sea running into the shore is magical, it goes on all day and night, and we loved experiencing it. The view is still there while sitting in bed, having a shower and sitting in the living room. It is the dominating feature and we feel lucky to have experienced it for our 10 day stay. We would highly recommend Clipper View to anyone wanting a quiet, quaint, Cornwall, seaside, sea view location.

We had a fantastic time at Portscatho, the beach is beautiful, unspoilt and a wonderful place for childern and adults to enjoy. We loved the short walk down to the beach from the house,,enjoyed the hospitality of the Hidden Hut, the Rosevine and the local pub the Plume .Fantasic food at all 3! The house itself is exceptional. A lot of thought and attention has gone into the design, superb quality - everything you could wish for to make your stay truly comfortable! We can see its a well loved home and we felt priviledged to be able to enjoy it. You can never tire of that view - absolutely stunning. Thank you and we've already booked for next year! :-)

Jessica Langcake

I reluctantly write this review, as selfishly didn't want to encourage people to our new found gem! Clipper View was exactly what we were looking for. Beautiful house with an even more beautiful view. Easy stroll to the beach and pub. Perfect. We hope to return soon.

Jayne Barratt

What a beautiful house by the sea! We have stayed in Portscatho every year for the last 20 years and this is one of the best places we’ve rented. A fabulous view, comfy beds, well equipped. Everyone at home keeps asking what we ‘did’ in Cornwall, honestly we sat on the terrace and relaxed in th sun! Would definitely rent again.


Clipper View was exceptionally comfortable, spotlessly clean and in a stunningly perfect location. We all loved the house and its surroundings and spent a very happy week there, sorry we couldn't stay longer. We loved sitting out on the terraced porch overlooking the sea and the south coastal path. Plenty to see and do, too: the nearby beach with delicious food from the Hidden Hut cafe; Portscatho with its harbour and pub and the coffee/hot chocolate bar overlooking the sea; nearby NT gardens, St. Anthony's Head path and beaches, Falmouth and the Maritime Museum and much more.
