Located high on a ridge on the St Anthony Headland lies the sleepy hamlet of Bohortha. Made up of a cluster of cottages and a farm, this is the perfect place to escape from reality and enjoy the true beauty of the idyllic Roseland Peninsula. Crotchet Cottage is located at the end of a row of fishermen's cottages accessed by a short footpath from where the road runs out. Crotchet Cottage is surrounded by rolling rural landscapes, stunning walks with the best views of St Mawes, Place Manor, Pendennis Castle, Falmouth and the Carrick Roads, St Anthony Head and Lighthouse and Towan Beach are all close by, dog friendly and family safe.
This is a traditional, double fronted Cornish cottage at the end of a pretty terrace of mixed thatch and slate roof properties. It is full of character with exposed beams and thick cob walls, two bedrooms and a private garden area a short walk away from the cottage (25m). This is a dog friendly property and there are few places with such good access to some of the most stunning coastal walks in the county.
Ground Floor: Small entrance porch with coat pegs leads through to; Lounge with open fireplace (coal only - due to the proximity of thatch) comfortable sofas and chairs and a TV, kitchen / dining room with fully fitted units and appliances and a farmhouse table and chairs.
First Floor: Master double bedroom with 5' bed, distant views and storage, twin room with 3' beds and storage and a family bathroom with bath & shower overhead and WC.
Exterior: Grass / paved area outside the front door which is a right of way to properties further down the terrace. There is a further, private lawned garden with table and chairs.

The cottage afforded all the facilities we were expecting, whilst the car parking facilities aren't ideal we didn't experience any issues.
We had a really good holiday. The cottage exceeded our expectations. We loved being able to walk to the coastal path in just a couple of minutes from the door. The boats in the Fal estuary provided on-going interest each day. We enjoyed the nearby towns of St Mawes and Portscatho, with the added bonus of being able to walk or travel by ferry to reach them, meaning you were not reliant on a car.
An excellent cottage, warm and comfortable, which was an ideal place to stay to experience the delights of a beautiful coastline, stunning spring gardens and friendly people.
We had a great time, the cottage is lovely and the location was great, perfectly placed for lots of lovely walks, exploring the area and just relaxing. We had everything we needed and were very comfortable. Two weeks just sped by.
The only problems we had were with the very low beams in the sitting room (all the others were find) which my tall husband kept banging his head on - and he never normally does this! Could have done with a lighter weight quilt on the double bed, it was very heavy. The shower is very slow - but appreciate the cottage is very old and this may be hard to change.

A great place to stay for walkers but rather remote with narrow roads to get in and out.
We had a wonderful time as we did lots of walking in the area and did not need to use the car.
Lovely cottage, well kept, kitchen was great and overall we felt at home. The master bed was very comfy & we were impressed with the standard of the bedding. Only two niggles, the living room furniture needs a re-jig. It was awkward to watch tv for one guest. Secondly, parking can be an issue as there is a working farm next door & we got the feeling this was a contentious issue. However we had a peaceful holiday in a lovely location & we would return again.
Pleasant property but found it difficult for parking as non visual disabled.Shower not good.Gd beds.
Very pleasant cottage in beautiful surroundings. If you do not want to drive on your holiday just get the passenger ferry across to St Mawes for your supplies (Co-op)
