We had a lovely stay in this cottage in March 2017. Despite being a chilly time of year, the cottage was very warm and cosy. We were really comfortable here - the decor isn't super-modern but everything was perfectly nice and clean. Comfy chairs and beds, good bath (with overhead shower); the kitchen is small but well-equipped, with everything we needed for cooking meals at home, and there's a separate dining table/space. That sitting room is lovely, with the French windows leading into a nice garden. The cottage is perfectly placed for walks along the stunning coastal paths and beaches, right from the doorstep in both directions! There's a really well-stocked shop in the village too, so we didn't need to get in the car at all if we didn't want to. We were able to really chill out and relax - would definitely stay in this cottage again!
So nice to have an early season visit to the cottage that feels like our second home. We take 26a The Lugger every summer for three weeks and 2017 will be our 23rd year. Cosy, comfortable, homely and a fantastic position! Two minutes walk from the harbour and my little boat, lovely little garden where we have BBQs and early drinks in the evening sunshine. The main bedroom looks out to the sea and each morning I take my cup of tea back to bed and watch the boats pottering by. We self cater and the kitchen / dining room works really well, lots of jolly banter while I slave over dinner. Wifi was a welcome addition a few years ago, especially for the boys, but good for Dad as well! Roll on July 21st, can't wait but between now and then grab it if you can. You'll love it I'm sure as we do. (There's also a parking space which is a real treat, especially in the mid summer season).
The location of this super cottage is stunning! We have visited Portscatho many times over the past few years, and stayed in the owners other cottages too. She is always going out of her way to accommodate us and meet our needs, with dates to suit us, at any time of the year! Nothing is too much for her! The cottages are always clean, comfortable and very well equipped, like our very own second home!
I was stunned having read the previous review, and can honestly say that all three of the owners cottages, on every occasion that we have visited, have been clean, warm, very well equipped and homely. Portscatho is tranquil, picturesque and quiet. We feel our shoulders drop as soon as we arrive. We are already counting down the weeks until our next visit to one of Angela's cottages.....
We were very disappointed with the standard of this property. The interior was out-dated and grubby, with some curtains that were tattered; the cooking utensils not well cared for and needed replacing; the radiators didn't always work effectively.
Thankfully, the weather was kind to us for the week we were staying in Portscatho and so, we were out most of the time.
We were of 'two minds' about writing this Review but felt we needed to make future visitors aware that the photos and description of this property were not entirely accurate.
A brilliant place to stay, right by the coast with stunning walks along the cliff paths, only to come back to a warm, inviting and cosy cottage with a lovely open fire. A fantastic place for a relaxing break no matter what the weather.
