This is a beautiful location with peace and quiet even in one of the busiest summers ever. Fantastic to have the little garden space, hose for washing down wetsuits and the utility & drying room. For the price though the place could do with some attention to detail, updating and some TLC.
My husband and I came to spindrift on the 25th june 2021. The owners were very polite and came to see us to ask us if we were ok. I would certainly recommend spindrift if you want a nice relaxing week. We loved it
A very comfortable and enjoyable stay. Great walks around the Roseland Peninsular. St Just in Roseland-St Mawes, Portscatho-Nare Head, Nare Head-Portloe, St Anthony Head. I would not hesitate to book again.
We have stayed at Spindrift before and love it. The location is hard to beat, providing excellent views and quiet surroundings. It takes approximately 10 minutes walk to get to Portscatho, were you can get great food and in our opinion the best coffee anywhere at "Tatams".
What a lovely place to discover,it was an Oasis of beauty,peace and nature. All the facilities we needed were provided and we quickly felt at home and enjoyed our peaceful stay. Nature surrounds the property and with distant sea views it all felt magical and gave us a sense of calm as we were dealing with Some difficult times. We slept so well on comfortable bed and furniture for whatever we needed including an outside table for coffee and breakfast. A super find and the whole booking system worked so well with pleasant and efficient staff involved at every stage.
Spindrift is in an ideal location, away from any noise from traffic etc. The property itself is well appointed with a full range of white goods, flat screen TV, DVD and radio/cd player. Private parking right outside of the property is very convenient. Would definitely book again.
Very clean and tidy good accommodation and the owners are very helpful and close nearby A good standard throughout the property. The beds had lovely linen but are non-fitted sheets which I find tend to move around and crease up. First world problems! Condition is overall very good though there are a couple of cracked floor tiles in the bathroom One slight annoyance is some dog mess on the driveway into the property as we walk in and out each day Value for money is ok, I feel that all holiday cottages have gone up hugely in price over the last 4 years. Location is perfect for us
Very comfortable. All facilities are up to date. It is in a quiet location, which is ideal for a relaxing stay.
This is a super lodge for four people but it is not in Portscatho as listed but on the outskirts of Germans. It is very quiet and you have to drive through narrow lanes to get anywhere. Not a good location for touring Cornwall but superb if you want to hide away in Roseland and not travel far but walk .
This is our 2nd visit to this cottage. While being close to the coast it has a quite and private location which we appreciate. It is well appointed,comfortable and offers everything we want for a short break. The owners are friendly and nothing is too much,yet your privacy is never encroached on. Cant wait for our next visit.
Nice property in convenient location for Roseland. All appliances worked well and easy to operate. Utility drying room a real bonus. Really useful if needed for wet walking kit or beach wear. We had a good week and appreciated the quiet in the property. There were only two of us but the two shower rooms make this ideal for a family or two couples.
A very relaxing and peaceful stay in a beautiful part of Cornwall. Spindrift is not huge but was perfect for my wife daughter and me. A few points of feedback. There is a bees nest in the west wall of the property - near the drying room. The hot water capacity is quite small. It is all gone after two showers so I there were four adults at the property all having showers this may be a problem. It would be useful if bin liners were provided. There was one provided for the dustbin but it was too small. No bin liners were provided for the kitchen bin. There were two lots of dog mess outside near the gate - I noticed there were some dogs in the offices by the road - possibly something to do with them but I didn't see any "incidents" occurring. I was concerned our daughter (toddler) might step or fall in it. The washing machine, dryer and freezer are all really useful as is the drying room hosepipe and washing line. Most cottages we have stayed in don't have this. Very handy after a day at the beach or on the water. The garden, deck and bbq area are great and you can just see the sea to the south east. Great views and very quiet.
The accommodation was well placed in a quiet area with surrounding fields and distant views of the sea. Inside there are two bedrooms both with en-suite. All facilities and equipment a very good standard.
A quiet oasis well positioned for easy access to Gerrans and Porthscatho. Comfortable, private and quiet. Couldnt ask for more. Hope to return soon.
Spindrift is a little far from Portscatho village for an easy walk to the pub Nice setting off the road good view over fields to the sea Spindrift has all you need although a little attention to detail is required on cleaning and maintinance Would rate this cottage 7 out of 10
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.
An excellent holiday cottage. Quiet location, well equipped, the perfect place for exploring the Roseland peninsula. It does what it says on the tin!
We were very disappointed in the standard of cleanliness which on previous visits had been excellent.
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.
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.
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.
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.
We have stayed at this property 4 times now, including this last visit, April 2016. The property is lovely and comfortable with outstanding views to the Nare We certainly hope to visit it again.
Many thanks to the Landlord! Had a great time at Spindrift Will come back. Best wishes to the old Office dog. ---------------------------------------
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.
Cosy wooden cabin in at great location. Owners on hand if required. Lovely walk across the fields to the village of Portscatho and the coastal path. Many fine beaches nearby.
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.
Peaceful and quiet, looking out over fields but with owners cottage and outbuildings behind. Cottage was well equipped but instructions regarding rubbish collection and recycling were not clear - we noticed them on our last day there.
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.
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.
Just the place for a week's R & R !! Wonderful position, all places easily accessible, particularly if you use the King Harry Ferry (worth every penny). Great cottage and very comfortable. Would certainly return.
Really enjoyable stay at this lovel chalet style property, conveniently located within walking distance of Gerrans/Portscatho, and with coastal walking from the doorstep.
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.
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.
