  • “Beautiful cottage and location let down by cleaners.”

    Cottage was not ready on arrival because beds had not been made. We found a bag of rubbish outside the back door, vegetable waste stuck to the bottom of the kitchen bin, frozen peas in the ice tray in the freezer and sticky marks on kitchen surfaces. Not what we expected particularly with current standard and earlier checkout and later check in times to allow for more thorough cleaning. ...

    Cottage was not ready on arrival because beds had not been made. We found a bag of rubbish outside the back door, vegetable waste stuck to the bottom of the kitchen bin, frozen peas in the ice tray in the freezer and sticky marks on kitchen surfaces. Not what we expected particularly with current standard and earlier checkout and later check in times to allow for more thorough cleaning. The caretaking couple were most helpful in working to get the cottage ready for us and keeping us updated and the welcome tray was lovely, especially the treats for the dog- lovely touch! The place itself was delightful and the location perfect with great access to coastal walks and beaches. Lovely outside space and loads of charm and character. We will probably return. If anything it is over equipped, a good clear out of some of the cupboards and surplus equipment would make it easier to keep clean. No one needs 4 chopping boards on holiday!!!

The property

Commanding superb sea views from the top of the village square, Dormer Villas is a stone's throw from the sandy cove at Portscatho and the picturesque harbour, on the exclusive and desirable Roseland Peninsula.

An area of outstanding natural beauty, discover the diversity of secluded coves, wooded countryside, fishing villages and scenic cliffs. The town of St Mawes, with harbour overlooking the River Fal and dramatic coastline, has two southerly facing bathing beaches.

The Tudor architecture of St Mawes Castle, built in the reign of Henry VII is a worthy sight.

Hop on the King Harry ferry across the River Fal and discover Falmouth, with four beaches arcing golden sands, Pendennis Castle, and the art and craft galleries, traditional inns and shops.

Explore St Just Roseland with its market square attractions including the 15th century parish church. The house has a spacious ambiance, with three bedrooms , two boasting elevated sea views across to Nare Head and Gull Rock.

A former Sea Captains house, this property has a large comfortable living room with open fire and a family dining room with a multi-fuel burning stove.

The kitchen is well appointed with a central island.

Two of the bedrooms have en-suite shower rooms, with additional bathroom with indulgent roll-top bath.

The sheltered enclosed garden with pretty lawn and flower borders is an absolute suntrap ideal for lazy breakfasts and barbecues.

About the location

PORTSCATHO

St Mawes 5 miles ; Truro 15 miles ; Mevagissey 13 miles

Once an important pilchard-fishing village, today Portscatho is a popular holiday destination for those seeking a traditional seaside location. Brimming with Cornish charm, there is a sandy beach and a harbour, as well as a pub, a butcher’s, a greengrocer’s and a handful of gift shops and galleries. The coastline here is most scenic, with hidden coves, secret beaches and mile upon mile of undulating coastal footpath. The village of Gerrans is just a short stroll along the shore, and the beautiful Porthcurnick beach is also accessible via the coast path from Porthscatho. Portscatho offers a holiday away from it all, with a welcoming community spirit and several annual events which everyone gets involved with – including the fish festival each August.

Note: There is a pond in the garden, please supervise children.
Note: There are building works being carried out on the neighbouring property (2 Dormer Villas, this property is also owned by this owner). From the 7th November 2020 this work will be internal only. Please contact us for further information.
