About Hugo King
About the owner: Lives in Somerset. Year purchased: 2007. Unique benefits of the property: The property sits just behind the main square in Portscatho so all amenities in the centre and the beach/Lugger are just a minute walk away. The property benefits from private parking for 2 cars which is almost unique for centrally located properties. This is our family holiday house. Our children and grand-children use the house for their annual holiday so inside is fully set up for family needs.

Fantastic cottage in great location.
Lovely cottage with great facilities and in a great location. Couldn’t fault anything.
We really enjoyed our week in this house. The location is fantastic - you are right in the centre of the village. It's comfortable and light and good for small children.
Many thanks you’ll always be welcome back!
A beautiful and well appointed cottage in a really special location on the Roseland Peninsula
Thoughtfully equipped for a family holiday, the cottage feels welcoming and comfortable whilst still being smart and spotlessly clean. We loved sitting out on the decking in the evenings and were a stone's throw away from the village shop, pub, bistro and Harbour club. A beautiful cottage in a great location -loved Portscatho, such a pretty village and very friendly- you must visit the Harbour club which is the social club in the village and for a small fee you can access. Watching the sun go down from their balcony is a must. A short walk to The Hidden Hut on Porthcurnick beach, again great atmosphere and food. Towan beach beautiful and our favourite- white sand and turquoise sea and a great tea van in the courtyard behind beach. Also kayaked and sailed from St Mawes, a short drive away. In all a great holiday in a beautiful part of Cornwall, we were very sad to leave and will definitely return as we ran out of time to do everything! Would definitely go back to Portscatho as a base, a really special village and a lovely cottage to stay in.
It’s so very nice to have quests such as Jackie who are appreciative not just of our cottage and the efforts we have made to ensure it is as near perfect as possible,but also of Portscatho and the Roseland and everything it has to offer.
Many thanks Jackie and come back soon!
Ein perfekte Ferienhaus!
Wir hatten eine herrliche Zeit auf der wunderschönen Roseland Peninsula.
Das Roses ist das perfekte Ferienhaus.
Es ist sehr gemütlich und liebevoll eingerichtet.
Wir haben uns sehr sehr wohl gefühlt.
Das Cottage ist mehr als komplett ausgestattet, so dass es uns an nichts gefehlt hat.
Von der Angel bis zum Backofen ist wirklich alles vorhanden was ein Haushalt so braucht.
Portscatho ist ein zauberhafter Ort und seine Bewohner sehr nett und äusserst hilfsbereit.
Wir würden jederzeit gerne wiederkommen.

For an altogether more informal and different dining event, the Hidden Hut is a small cafe with a big difference.
