A beautifully presented three bedroom cottage with open plan double aspect living-dining room with a cosy wood-burning stove, patio door leads out to a garden with two patio areas and views across Gerrans Bay to gull rock and Nare Head, few better places to enjoy a morning coffee or a barbecue. There are a well-equipped kitchen and utility room, downstairs family bathroom and a separate WC. Upstairs are three spacious bedrooms and the master bedroom, which also has sea views and benefits from an ensuite bathroom.
Tremorva is only a short, five-minute walk down the hill to the pretty little harbour of Portscatho, where many artists have taken inspiration from the stunning location and superb light in the area. Several delightful small galleries are showcasing the work of various Cornish artists. The Plume of Feathers public house is nestled in The Square and serves local ales and good pub grub all year round. Rosevine beach (dog friendly throughout the year), is just to the east of the village. It has beautiful golden sands (at low tide) and is overlooked 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 house was good and location pretty good, but the quality of the interior (especially carpet in sitting room + duvets in main bedroom) was poor. No door on ensuite bathroom in main bedroom either . and for £1500/week - this was expensive, although perhaps Covid had pushed the price up. Still
Comfortable, and generally clean (carpet was a bit marked but that did not matter to us as long as we didn't get the blame!).
Just what we were looking for, though prices seem to have gone up generally this year. Location great for us as we needed to be in this specific area for sailing on the Percuil river. Short walk to pubs, waterside at Portscatho and coastal path. Can do a lot of local exploring without having to use the car.
Good garden furniture.
A dryer would be helpful for anybody staying more than a week or doing a lot of washing or watersports.
Would be very happy to stay here again. Very straightforward arrangements, and we had no problem with anything during the stay.
