Roses Cottage is a delightful 3 bedroom cottage located in a private cul de sac just behind the main square in the fishing village of Portscatho. The cottage has been extensively renovated and refurbished to a high standard.

The house is approached through a secure gate into a large decking area. The decking provides ample room for seating/sunbathing or for dining out on when weather permits. The far side of the garden is set in a traditional Cornish style country garden and even has its own palm tree!

The entrance to Roses Cottage is via the front door leading into a large atrium. Leading off this is the utility room, shower room and kitchen diner. Going through into the kitchen diner you are welcomed by a large fully fitted kitchen. The kitchen diner boasts dishwasher, standalone butchers block, dining table plus a relaxing seating area. The dining area will easily accommodate 6 people. Slate floors extend throughout the hall, kitchen and dining areas. To the end of the kitchen diner are fashionable fold back patio doors which extend back to almost the entire width of the dining area. Once opened, these lead out onto the decking area, therefore increasing the dining/socialising area as required. The dining end of the kitchen is of conservatory style and has a glass roof which is flooded with sunlight during day hours.

The sitting room is approached from the kitchen area and has a warm, homely feeling. There is a very large sofa and 2 arm chairs. The sitting room has 3 South facing windows overlooking the private road. The sitting room is tastefully decorated in natural colours and includes an electric log fire effect heater set in a natural stone fireplace. The staircase leads from the sittingroom to the first floor.

The cottage has 3 bedrooms, including 2 double rooms and a third bedroom which has a purpose built bed unit which can form 3 single beds (including a bunk bed suitable for a child only) or a double bed with bunk bed above. Therefore up to 7 people inluding a child can be comfortably accommodated. .

There is a designer bathroom on the first floor which includes a roll top bath and a separate shower cubicle. A low level WC and standalone sink complete the suite. Decoration includes attractivemarble effect tiling and flooring.

Downstairs, there is a shower room which incorporates a low level WC, sink and large shower cubicle. This is perfect for washing off sand and sea water after a hard day at the beach.

A utility room is located off the entrance hall and has a sink, washing machine, and drying rail.

Portscatho is a small village on the East Coast of the Roseland Peninsula, Cornwall. The village is a very popular destination for holiday makers with many people coming back year after year. Portscatho is towards the end of the Roseland Peninsula and is a short ten minute drive away from St Mawes - the principle village on the Roseland.

Portscatho is famous for its history of Pilchard fishing and still has a small but active fishing fleet whose boats can be seen along the fore shore and within the harbour wall. There is still a small slipway in this area for the launching of small dingheys, windsurfers and other small craft.

Portscatho is actually two small villages - Portscatho, and Gerrans, a short walk up the hill away from the coast. These two villages do, however, join and are known as Portscatho rather than two separate villages. Geographically they're connected.



Portscatho has two pubs, the popular Plume of Feathers in the village centre, a stones throw from the water, and The Royal Standard, situated up the hill in Gerrans. Both pubs offer good food and a great atmoshpere and get very busy in the summer months.




Portscatho has several restaurants. The Boathouse is in the heart of the main square and caters for a whole variety of tastes from tea and cake to evening fine dining. The second restaurant in Portscatho is the famous Driftwood Hotel and Restaurant. The restaurant is for fine dining and regularly features in National Good Food Guides.

The Rosevine Restaurant also comes highly recommended as is regularly featured in national press reviews.

The Hidden Hut is found on Porthcurnick Beach and serves snacks during the day, and can also be found to host occassional pop up feast nights.






Portscatho has a small, sandy beach just off the main square although space is restricted at high tide. Porthcurnick beach is located just a 10 minute walk halfway around the bay. Porthcurnick beach is much larger and has ample space for all.



Portscatho has an array of shops. All are centred around the main square and narrow streets behind. Ralph's store is a small supermarket but caters for all needs. Fresh bakery items are produced daily ranging from scones and cakes to pies and pasties. Portscatho also has a Butchers shop located behind the pub. There are also various antiquity shops selling everything from knick knacks to fine art. A Post Office is also located in Portscatho and can be found at the top of the slipway. The Post Office is also a small shop selling beach and sea side items ranging from postcards to fishing tackle. Portscatho also has several art galleries, including the Spindrift Gallery located in the main square.

The Spindrift Gallery is also found in Portscatho sqaure and is well known and recommended by local artists.



Located in Portscatho is The Harbour Club. This provides entertainment for everyone of all ages and is open daily and every evening. The Harbour Club has a licenced bar and regularly presents entertainment for the family including cinema films, magicians, entertainers etc. Wifi wireless is also available at The Harbour Club (a small admission/joining fee is payable for entry).
