“A lovely property that really made our holiday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

We stayed at 2 the Quarry for a week to celebrate my mother's 70th birthday in September, and this lovely property really did make our holiday.
From the spacious open plan living/dining/kitchen area to the lovely views from the main bedrooms, the house was a total delight.
The well equipped kitchen was stocked with all the tableware and utensils you could possibly need (and more) and the books and toys available in the living area were a lovely homely touch.
We were all able to relax and unwind. One of the highlights of the holiday for me was watching the sun rise over the harbour from my bed each morning listening to the sound of the birds!
Beds were really comfortable with lovely fresh bedlinen and towels (I strongly recommend the optional linen service). The bathrooms were well fitted, gleamingly clean and with good showers.
There was ample parking available (we arrived with three cars between us) and the house was just a short walk from the village centre.
We will certainly hope to visit this property again in the future.

“HIGHLY RECOMMENDED - FANTASTIC VIEWS, GREAT LOCATION, STYLISH, VERY WELL EQUIPPED & CLEAN”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

I stayed here for a long weekend with friends but would work just as well with two families or large number of children. Really comfortable and well equipped - good number of modern and stylish bathrooms for configuration of comfy bedrooms. The house is arranged to enjoy the magnificent view over the whole of Portscatho. Very stylish open plan Sitting/Dining area with modern Kitchen with doors to glass balcony to maximise views!! Everything you may need is thought of - excellent amount of glasses, mugs etc plus books, dvds, games etc for those lazy days. Good storage and extras eg: crab lines, nets, buckets. Highly recommended - Definitely would stay again!

“Very comfortable and well equipped with outstanding views across the bay.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012 for a stay in May 2012

Had a really great mid week break, in this deceptively spacious and modern house. The standard of the rooms, kitchen, bathrooms was excellent and the view from the balcony adjacent to the dining area was stunning. Would definitely stay there again as it works extremely well for all sorts of groups ie friends, family groups etc. Porthscatho is very unspoilt too with great amenities, including a lovely beach cafe. Highly recommended.

“Views to die for”

person found this review helpful

We had a lovely few days at Portscatho, staying at this superbly located house. The Quarry was a great base to explore the Cornish coastline with its lovely beeches and villages. You can walk directly to a few beautiful coves to play on and it's only a short drive to various others for picnics and crabbing.
The house has everything that you could need, making it a home from home and the views of the coast from the lounge are really breath-taking.

“A perfect, stressfree seaside holiday with all amenities available.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2012 for a stay in November 2011

The brilliant thing about Portscatho is that once there you don't have to get in your car if you don't want to. The Quarry is in a great location at the heart of the village and easy walking distance to everything that matters - shop, beach, pub, post office. We had a great time and thoroughly recommend it. Inside it's a haven in a superb location. It is newly renovated with lovely open plan living and kitchen area, with a balcony from which there is a wonderful view of the bay. Great for breakfast on a sunny morning. The kitchen is very user friendly, and well stocked with good quality equipment. There is a good entrance/hall area as you come in to put wet, sandy things. Lovely beaches and lovely walks from the doorstep as well as plenty of things to visit further a field.

“Einfach perfekt -Just perfect!!!”

Wir hatten einen wunderbaren Urlaub in dem genialen Ferienhaus! Das Haus ist eine Art Reihenhaus, im EG ist nur der Eingang, ein Schlafzimmer und ein Bad. Von hier aus kann man auch in den Garten raus gehen, der aber etwas beschieden ist (Holzterrasse, ein Öltank und ein kleiner gepflasterter Bereich). In der Mitte sind 2 Kinderschlafzimmer (eins mit Hochbett und Einzelbett und eins mit zwei Einzelbetten), ein innenliegendes Bad mit Dusche und Badewanne und das Elternschlafzimmer mit eigenem Bad (Dusche). Ganz oben ist das offene Wohnzimmer mit der großen gut ausgestattete Küche und der wunderbaren Aussicht. Ich schätze das Haus wurde ca. 2006 gebaut. Alles ist sehr schön eingerichtet, sauber und modern. Auch die Bäder sind wirklich schön! Wie in England üblich gibt es viel Teppich, der aber sauber ist.
Wir haben besonders die Aussicht auf dem Balkon genossen, das ist einfach Urlaub! Auch unseren kleinen Kindern (3 Jahre und 5 Jahre) hat es super gefallen. Es waren sogar einige Spiele für etwas ältere Kinder in der Wohnung.
Der Vermieter war sehr nett, wir haben ihn zwar nicht gesehen, aber sehr netten und immer schnellen Mail-Kontakt gehabt. Alles komplett unkompliziert und super.
Im Dorf gibt es einen kleinen Supermarkt, der alles wichtige hat. Es gibt dort auch sehr gute Brötchen. Der nächste große Supermarkt liegt in Truro, ca 40min entfernt. Portscatho selbst ist ein süßes Dörfchen, einziger Nachteil ist, dass es von der wirklichen Hauptstraße schon etwas weit weg ist, so dass man bei Ausflügen Richtung LandsEnd oder Falmouth schon etwas unterwegs ist.
Unbedingt muss man zur Hidden Hut am Strand gehen! Die Hidden Hut ist eine kleine Strandhütte, in der man kleine gute Mittagessen, Kuchen, Eis, Kaffee, Tee und Softdrinks kaufen kann (hat auch einen Internetauftritt). Sie liegt total schön oberhalb der Strandes und ist einfach ebenfalls perfekt. Besonders zu empfehlen sind die Feat-Nights, die immer wieder veranstaltet werden (der Vermieter informierte uns darüber). Wir haben sofort gebucht und wirklich Glück gehabt bei der Lobster Night dabei sein zu können, ein tolles Erlebnis!
Auch gut war der Fish-and-Chips Auto, was Dienstags und Freitags zwischen ca. 16-19h vorbeikam!
Wir können die Ferienwohnung uneingeschränkt empfehlen und werden wahrscheinlich auch selbst nochmal wieder kommen!
Vielen Dank für den wunderschönen Urlaub!
