Overview

About the property

One Old School Cottages - a holiday cottage that sleeps 6 guests in 3 bedrooms

This lovely cottage, located at the southern end of the quiet village of Gerrans is a charming place to stay at any time of the year. Within walking distance of two pubs, sandy beaches, a range of wonderful walks and the famous Hidden Hut beach cafe, it is a great spot for a holiday.

The cottage, one of a small development of four, built very much in traditional style, but to modern standards. That means beamed ceilings, but not too low! It means a lovely open gas fire with double glazing to keep it really cosy. In addition there is a charming little garden to the rear which is a really quiet and peaceful place to enjoy.

Accommodation

Ground Floor: A small porch gives access to the hall and lounge. The lounge has a fire place with gas fire. Doors lead to the conservatory and French doors to the enclosed rear garden. The dining room leads through to the good sized kitchen. There is a separate utility room and a family bathroom with over bath shower.

First Floor: Stairs lead to a landing with views over the rooftops out to the bay and glimpses of the sea. There is a double bedroom with 4'6 bed and TV, twin bedroom and bunk room with a separate family shower room.

Exterior: Charming enclosed rear garden with external furniture.

Heating is via night storage heating and the gas fire. The kitchen has a range or equipment.

Home from Home

  • 5 of 5

One Old School Cottages provided us with everything we needed for a week away. The house was clean, cosy and comfortable and was a real 'home from home'. We were greeted with milk, biscuits and wine upon arrival which were very welcome, together with contact details for the caretaker. The kitchen was very well equipped with pots, pans and other dishes, as well as lots of cutlery. How lovely too to have a plentiful supply of dishwasher tablets and clothes washing capsules, rather than a token one or two. The bathrooms were clean and the bedrooms nicely presented. Although the weather was not conducive to sitting outside, our dog welcomed a safe space to wander in. We will certainly be back!

Lovely Cottage - Better than expectations - It was a home from home experience with cosy and comfortable furnishings - Close to Coastal paths ideal for walking with 2 Pubs very close and a few more within driving distance. Lovely part of Cornwall - Unspoilt and quiet - Would recommend this Property.

Another excellent week at Portscatho

  • 4 of 5

This was our 4th visit to One Old School Cottages in the last six years; the house is in an ideal location for the local beaches and Portscatho. We had a great week exploring the beaches and local sights.

Lovely property in great location

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was lovely with loads of room for 6 adults and exceptionally well equipped. (Conservatory was a great extra space when we all needed some space!) It was very comfortable and well furnished. Nothing seemed to have been forgotten. The location was superb - a 10 minute walk to the sea in the lovely village of Portscatho (though the pull on the way back up may have been too much for some!), but far enough out to be very quiet.

In summary a superb property that I would definitely recommend.

Very comfortable cottage

  • 5 of 5

One Old School house is a lovely cottage, extremely comfortable. We were 4 adults one small baby and the accommodation was very well suited to us. Beautifully clean, lovely garden, well equipped kitchen. Not every one wants to eat out every night and with a small baby we were able to cater for ourselves with no equipment problems. The caretakers were very friendly and helpful. All in all we would recommend this cottage.

LOVELY WEEK IN THE OLD SCHOOL COTTAGE.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely relaxing week in the cottage. It was so comfortable I even enjoyed cooking the odd meal....We are so busy working that is a real treat to just relax together and enjoy nice food and each others company.

The cottage is gorgeous and I could move in. The information you left for your visitors was extremely helpful and the ferry was handy. Cornwall is beautiful and we will happily come again it was a lovely holiday, Thank you for all the care and attention you have put into making our stay great.

Location

Portscatho and its neighbouring village of Gerrans are located on the eastern coast of the Roseland Peninsula, Cornwall, overlooking the dramatic Gerrans Bay. A truly peaceful waterside village, Portscatho is a lovely place for a holiday. There are miles of coastal and countryside footpaths to explore, particularly along St Anthony's Head. Portscatho was once a busy fishing harbour, but now it has become a haven for artists due to the striking light which is particularly good in the morning sun. More than anything, Portscatho is a relaxing place. The beaches such as Porthcurnick, Towan and Porthbeor are simply idyllic and these are only minutes from the village. With a superb local butchers shop, 2 great little pubs and a well stocked local store, Portscatho and Gerrans are a lovely place to spend a holiday.

The Roseland Peninsula is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and forms one of the finest sections of Cornwall's South Coast. From Mevagissey to St Mawes and bordered by the Fal Estuary to the west, the Roseland Peninsula has been drawing visitors for years with its splendid coastline, unique gardens, historic villages and superb sailing waters. With The Lost Gardens of Heligan and The Eden Project in one direction and Falmouth and the National Maritime Museum in the other, the Roseland is brimming with places to visit and things to do.

St Mawes Castle, built by Henry VIII in the 16th century sits on Castle Point at the mouth of the River Fal. At the top of St Mawes, Lamorran Gardens house a wonderful collection of tropical plants.

St Just-in-Roseland has arguably the most photographed church in Cornwall. The 13th century church sits quietly tucked away on the edge of the creek.

The Veryan Roundhouses are a must see, on the way to Nare Head, where you will find the most spectacular views of Gerrans Bay. The little village of Portloe nestles in lovely valley and is one of Cornwall's quintessential spots.

The Roseland Inn at Philleigh is a 16th century pub just waiting for you to visit.

The most popular thing to do though on the Roseland is simply to walk and enjoy some of Cornwall's most beautiful coastline. Events on the Roseland reach fever point in August when sailing regattas, carnivals, fayres and fun days take place all over the Roseland and the waters of the Carrick Roads. It is a memorable place for many people who return year after year to enjoy the magic of this beautiful place.
