Portscatho Holiday Cottages
In the Roseland Peninsula of Cornwall sits the coastal village of Portscatho, adjoining the village of Gerrans - about seven miles south of Truro with a community of just under 1,500 people.
Many Portscatho holiday cottages are nestled into the corner of Gerrans Bay with views across the cove, sheltered from the south-westerly winds. Indeed, this location made the village the ideal base for pilchard fleets in the 18th and 19th centuries, and it remains an active fishing port today. The shelter from the wind also makes the Portscatho beach safe for swimming: it’s a favourite amongst families looking for some sun and sand. Several independent shops can be found in the village as well as a lovely local pub, The Plume of Feathers, which serves up local ales and ‘proper’ pub grub.
The Roseland Peninsula is a beautiful place to take a break.
