Sammyshute occupies a secluded plot just back from the coast path with outstanding views across Gerrans Bay. The large, south facing, sunroom has comfortable sofas and there are few better places to while away an afternoon with the yachts crossing the horizon and ships further out to sea. The large garden provides plenty of space to let children play, with a spacious lawn and plenty of mature trees and shrubs. The house is private and secluded, with only a couple of neighbouring properties in this exclusive part of the beautiful Roseland Peninsula, and a short walking distance to access the South West Coast Path.

Sammyshute is situated in Rosevine which is just a 5 minute drive from Portscatho or about 10 minutes to St Mawes. Just a short walk along the lane can be found the Michelin starred restaurant at Driftwood where you can sample the excellent cuisine of Chef Chris Eden. There is also The Rosevine with its relaxed bistro style food and wonderful views. The Rosevine also has a swimming pool which is ideal to keep the kids entertained on rainy days!

Just 300m from Sammyshute is Curgurrell Farm Shop - voted by in 2017 by The Daily Telegraph as best farm shop in the South West - selling fresh veg from the farm as well as home-made jams and chutneys. But the real draw is the fish, crab and lobster caught the same day just offshore. A little further the other way is the famous Hidden Hut beach cafe and Porthcurnick Beach. Sandy, safe and so friendly, this beach is a firm favourite for many who visit the Roseland.

This house has fabulous views across Gerrrans Bay in Roseland. The house is extremely comfortable and decorated in a seaside stylish manner which gives it a lovely holiday vibe. It is easy to walked to lovely beaches. A great place to have family holiday in Cornwall for all ages. The Burnetts

It was our first holiday for over 7 months and we relaxed as soon as we entered the property. Lovely scenery from the sitting area, all the amenities you need and a very well equipped kitchen. Plenty of space and the comfy lounge is nice for the cold evenings. We didn’t make the most of the garden due to the cool weather but we had the joy of seeing a young deer crossing the garden one evening. The coastal path is less than 10 minutes from the house and the local farm shop, although a bit pricey, only 5 minutes. We loved it so much, we have already booked another week for later in the year even though prices are slightly inflated in response to COVID and high demand.

Alison Mays

A really lovely, comfortable house with amazing views. Good location for touring the area and wonderful garden for the children.

Daniel Cole

Located within ten minutes walk of three beautiful beaches, this holiday cottage is perfectly possitioned. Everything has been thought of and is in great condition. The holiday cottage is spacious and is set in some beatiful gardens that are wrapped around providing a great place to relax.

Robert Smith

Second visit in the last two years, great house, great location, great views and would highly recommend .

Chris Charlton

We were very impressed with the amount of space afforded both inside and outside. The views are stunning, and we spent many hours sitting in the garden or the sun room. It's well located for dining on all levels, and the farm shop is very good which is a short walk.

Ian Gilman

Mould is an issue in all bathrooms. No soap provided. House in need of maintenance inside and out.

James Langford

A wonderful place to stay and great location! The house has a beautiful position and great views out towards Carne beach.

Katharine Odlum

We enjoyed our stay very much. Sammyshute is a very comfortable modern house with space for all. We only had one or two minor requests - it would be very useful to have a baking tray or two in the kitchen, and there was no bath mat in the upstairs bathroom. I think that, given the cost of the rent, there should be the basics left in the kitchen, We have had these in other houses we have rented - such as washing up liquid, a few dishwasher tablets, a new dishcloth etc. It was very good to find drying up cloths to use. It just helps to feel welcomed and means one doesn’t have to bring the kitchen sink with one.

Pat Barkham

The house and location was very good and very easy to find. A good sized house and all the facilities needed when looking after young children.

Rosie Hosken

My 2 family's were very comfortable and they loved every minute of their stay at Sammyshute and would do all over again.

Amanda Jefferies

The house is quietly situated with wonderful views over Gerrans Bay. For our multi-generational extended family of 9 it suited us very well. There's plenty of space downstairs with the separate lounge and sun lounge areas and a big garden outside for the energetic to run around in. The refitted modern kitchen and dining area, the clean and very well appointed bathrooms with plentiful hot water are all good reasons for us to book this house again, and we hope to be back soon.

Tracey Hough

Amazing location and view. Well equipped modern kitchen. Very comfortable bedrooms. We had a great stay.

Julie Brown

Didn't have a car but still managed to have a great holiday. Reliable bus and manageable walk to Portscatho via Hidden Hut. Avoid main road - very dangerous. Need a torch if going to pub at night. There is a beach immediately below the house/farm shop. Had a lovely relaxing holiday and enjoyed the beautiful scenery. Would highly recommend and hopefully will go again in the future.
