The dining area is to the side and the table comfortably seats eight, whilst there's a further table and chairs on the terrace for alfresco dining during warmer weather. In addition, there's a utility room with all the necessary laundry appliances should you need it.


Sleeping

There are four gorgeous bedrooms at Spindrift, two of which are en suite. The master en suite bedroom is at the top of the house and has a tall, vaulted ceiling with floor-to-ceiling glass windows leading out to a private balcony with views over the rooftops to the sea beyond. With wooden floors, wooden furniture and a super-cosy king size bed, this is a lovely paired-back room offering a peaceful escape from the world. The second king size bedroom is on the first floor whilst the third en suite king size bedroom is on the ground floor - both are in shades of grey and white, whilst the forth bedroom, a twin, is also on the ground floor - perfect for children.


Bathing

There are four bath and shower rooms at Spindrift. The master bedroom en suite has a huge walk in shower and fabulous roll-top freestanding bath. The second en suite (on the ground floor) is a shower room with large walk in shower. In addition, there is a further two shower rooms - one on the first floor opposite the bedroom with spacious walk-in shower, the other, a wet room on the ground floor, with eye-catching pebble walk-in shower near to the twin bedroom. All come with heated rails to keep towels warm and fluffy.


Outdoor space

With sun-drenched terraces and balconies, this is a lovely spot to kick back and relax, gazing at the sea views with a glass of something special in hand. In front of the main living space you'll find a large raised terrace with plenty of comfy seating to relax in. In addition, the three-tier terraced garden offers first a summer room and space to BBQ, followed by a raised decking with dining table and chairs perfect for meals outside during a summer sunset.

In the Area

Portscatho is a traditional fishing village, with a small harbour, on the stunning Roseland Peninsula, situated on the south coast of Cornwall. Pretty and pastoral, with hidden coves and beaches, this side of the county is much softer and more protected than its rugged neighbour the north coast. There's so much to do in this wonderful part of Cornwall, whether it's exploring the beaches such as Porthcurnick, Towan, Carne and Pendower, walking the stunning South West Coastal Path or visiting the plethora of gardens which make the most of the warmer climate - such as Trelissick Gardens or The Lost Gardens of Heligan. With lots of great places to eat and drink, you'll be spoilt for choice. The local pub, The Plume of Feathers, where a warm welcome from the owners Roger & Helen is guaranteed, is in the heart of the village and serves great pub food. The Harbour Club enjoys fantastic views of Gerrans Bay from its large balcony and welcomes visitors for a nominal members fee. From Tatums Taverna, the newly established restaurant below, owned by Cornwall's chef of the moment, Simon Stallard of Hidden Hut fame, you can enjoy wonderful, locally produced food from the simple open grill in a bustling atmosphere, or order something to take away and for something a little different head to The Hidden Hut, situated on the cliffs above Porthcurnick Beach. If silver-service is your thing, The Driftwood Hotel boasts a Michelin-starred restaurant just a short hop away and just a few miles down the road in St Mawes, you will find the renown Tresanton and Idle Rocks Hotels.


The ultimate seaside retreat, this stylish home is the perfect escape for larger families or a group of friends, with epic views, tons of space and fabulous sun terraces made for sipping cocktails.

We know how gorgeous our retreats are, but don’t just take our word for it – here’s what previous guests say about Spindrift:

The property is in a superb location with spectacular views from inside the property making it a great place to relax come rain or shine.

Fantastic place to stay for a quiet Cornish holiday. Plenty of nice walks, great local facilities and wonderful views from front sun terrace. Booked for next year already.

Spindrift is a wonderful property, comfortable, everything thought of, beautiful views, lovely walk to the neighbouring beach. Nice friendly pub, Plume of Feathers on doorstep. Road to property is tight for a big vehicle, but we were warned of that. Parking for two cars welcome as busy in the square. We had a lovely family holiday and would love to visit again. Would defiantly recommend.

The house exceeded my expectations, location was superb, pub did good take out food, right on top of the coastal path, and we had beautiful weather too! House decor was just lovely, I could easily live there, it had everything I could have wanted, and the bed linen was sumptuous. Would book this house again without hesitation.

I would recommend spindrift to anyone looking for excellent accommodation that is fabulously positioned and perfectly stocked . Adored our stay and already hoping to return. Parking a massive bonus in Cornwall as is the very lovely walkable pub !

Beautiful retreat, beautiful view - even in October, will definitely return

A great place to stay in a lovely location would definitely go back

Beautiful house with stunning views from the house and terrace. A wonderful place for a beach holiday.

Gorgeous seaside house with fresh modern interiors in lovely Porthscatho. Perfectly located for older kids to have a bit of freedom and pop out for an ice cream. Lovely views from the terrace and walking distance to beaches, and great cafes.

An outstanding house in a beautiful location. Perfect house for a large group with loads of space or lovely for a smaller group as so well planned. My husband thought it was the best self catering house we had ever stayed in and would certainly return, it ticked all the boxes. Spindrift you gave us a very special week.

We had such an amazing break . Spindrift exceeded our expectations everything was perfect ! We will definitely be returning!

Stunning interior, great location, beautiful coastal views and walks. Excellent pub next door.
