"Great place to stay."

This really is the most fantastically appointed self catering accomodation that we have stayed in. The views are truly outstanding and change by the hour. A real gem of a Cornish hideaway.

"Amazing 180 degree views of beach/harbour"

Clean and tidy house in the best location. Very comfortable double bed with good quality bed linen. A warm, homely feeling property. Lovely small village location. Delicious pasties from Ralphs (village shop). Handy landline phone (incoming calls) as can only get mobile phone reception above harbour. Having two bathrooms is a real bonus. Also property has a washer/drier. There is everything you need at the property. Great coastal walks. Recommend the walk around St Anthonys head (approx. 6 miles). Many sandy beaches/coves close by. A property we would happily visit again. We are missing the views already. Have recommended property to friends already.

"It`s the best place in Cornwall"

We have stayed in Lapwing every June for the last 8 years. We have brought friends with us who have stayed in adjacent properties and they have all wished they were in Lapwing. There is nothing better than having breakfast and lunch on the terrace overlooking the beach and harbour with the sun streaming down. Even if it rains the cottage facilities are excellent. Looking forward to our next stay in June. Nat997P

"The most fantastic holiday location possible"

We stayed in a few different places in Cornwall before we found Portscatho, but since we did we have never gone anywhere else. Portscatho itself is a small village, very peaceful (the road into the village doesn't go anywhere so traffic is minimal) with a pub, a well-stocked shop, a cafe and a few small art galleries/shops. It has a great beach, with another even better beach a short walk along the cliff path. Falmouth, St Mawes and St Austell (for the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan) are all easily accessible by car. Lapwing's main attraction is the incredible view that you get from the living room, the balcony and the master bedroom of the harbour and the coast stretching away in the distance. There are also other great beaches nearby, some accessible only from the cliff path. Because the village (and the beach) is so safe our children are able to have an enormous degree of freedom to roam. Because the beach is so close you can drop down for a swim, a sand castle build or a picnic without it being a huge stressful outing. The house itself is very comfortable with all the amenities you would expect from a holiday house, including two showers which is fantastic after a day on the beacj. I cannot recommend Lapwing highly enough. In the visitors book there are messages from people who have been staying there for twenty or thirty years, which I think says it all, really.
