The cabin lies up a track above the woodlands beside Froe Creek near Portscatho. It has its own large garden with lawn, trees, shrubs and glorious views from the china clay mountains to the sea, or across the river to St Mawes. 300 or so metres from a wonderful sandy beach and the South West coastal footpath, it offers a perfect base for relaxing in peace or exploring one of Cornwall's most beautiful areas, the Roseland. If you are lucky, you may spot the seals which also visit the beach, egrets sometimes fish in the creek and a pair of resident buzzards often circle above.
The nearest village, Portscatho, has a good general store open 7 days a week, a butcher, pubs with wifi and is only a mile and a half by road, or on foot by the bridle way or the coastal path.
Cornwall's capital, the cathedral city of Truro, and the busy historic port of Falmouth with its Maritime Museum can both be reached by the picturesque King Harry Ferry (which reduces a 20 mile journey to 8 miles). These are lovely old fashioned but contrasting towns and a joy to shop or eat in.
There are many other beautiful walks around the headland to other beaches and the lighthouse at St Anthony Head, with beautiful views of the whole bay. Known as the Carrick Roads, this is one of the deepest natural harbours in the world.
River and sea ferries take you to the Tudor castles at Falmouth and St Mawes, and several sub-tropical gardens including Trelissick (just across from the King Harry Ferry) or even to Truro. Water sports of every sort, sailing, kayaking, wind surfing etc. abound. The lost gardens of Heligan and the Eden Project are about a 45 minute drive away near St Austell.
The rest of Cornwall is easily accessible including the Tate Gallery at St Ives, the Lizard, the Atlantic Coast and Bodmin Moor.
The Roseland peninsular, with St Anthony Lighthouse, protects the entrance to Falmouth Bay in South Cornwall. Ferries go to St Mawes, Falmouth and Truro, centres for sailing, historic monuments, sub-tropical gardens, museums and shops. There are several wonderful beaches, circular coastal walks with beautiful views of both rivers and the sea. The cabin is about 300 meters from the nearest large sandy secluded beach. It lies up a rough, driveable track from the road at Froe Creek.
