About the Owner

Hello,

I am Jennifer, owner with my husband of this property. We are a London family, with three children who are now in their teens and early twenties.

We have been fortunate enough to be able to buy two holiday homes, and we really love sharing these homes with guests.

My aim is for these houses to be a real home from home, for you as guests as much as for our family. So they are comfortable, but not grand, well equipped but not flashy. Just comfortable, relaxed, homely environments.

I hope you will stay, and love them just as much!

Jennifer

Lovely cottage with wonderful views

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed a relaxing break in a beautiful part of Cornwall. The cottage had everything we needed and gave us a good base to explore the county.

Lovely house in beautiful seaside village

  • 4 of 5

The house is a well equipped property in good decorative order. The beds are comfortable and having three bathrooms is a bonus. The kitchen has plenty of pots, pans, crockery and cutlery. a dishwasher and a washing machine. The table out the front is lovely for al fresco meals but more sunny in the morning.The position is excellent for walkers with the coast path running in front of the house. Around St Anthony's Head is one of the loveliest walks and is a long walk from the house or a short drive. From near to here is a little ferry to St Mawes which has great choice for eating. Porthcurnick beach is a short walk from the house and above the beach is the Hidden Hut where you can get light luches, tea, coffee and cakes with a lovely view over the beach. Cugurrel Farm shop sells some of the freshest fish and seafood in Cornwall.Veryan is a pretty inland village nearby and a centre for walks. Portscatho itself has a pub, luchtime restaurant, butcher and general store and a coffee kiosk selling top quality coffee.

Well loved family holiday home

  • 5 of 5

Maralane is clearly a well loved family holiday home, and we immediately felt relaxed and at home there.

The location is excellent having direct access to the coastal path and the comfy living room and master bedroom (with superb en suite) have wonderful sea views.

Unfortunately, during our stay there was a problem with the wood burning stove. And although the problem could not be completely rectified at the time, communication with Jennifer, the owner, was excellent, and the local manager of the property was prompt and friendly in her response.

Although the difficulty with the stove did have an impact on our holiday, we were very generously compensated.

Unforseen circumstances happen, but we were very happy with the way the situation was resolved, and look forward to returning to Maralane in the future.

Location

From the Owner

Maralane is our home from home in Cornwall. Our children have grown up with days of playing on the beach, sailing, surfing, swimming, and then cosying up around the fire playing games or watching films. Of course, we love coming down here in the Summer, but windy Autumn walks, or frosty winter mornings are wonderful too. The village needs to have its houses open, and buzzing with people, who will love the village, its pub and shops, the sailing school and all the many local activities. And so, we love to share our home with guests from far and wide, who also come to love this peaceful corner of the Roseland Peninsula.

Activity and Interests

Coast/Beach:

Portscatho itself has a fishing harbour - with a couple of local boats still landing fish daily. At low tide there is a pleasant little beach with excellent rock pooling!

This is a great spot to swim from as well.

Just a few minutes walk along the cliff path (turn left out of the house) is a gorgeous National Trust beach, with a knock-out beach cafe. Again, great for swimming and body boarding in an Easterly breeze.

Percuil inland and upriver from St Mawes is perfect for sailing and boating

Travel:

Portscatho is on the Roseland peninsula. Truro (with its mainline station) is half an hour's drive away, across the King Harry ferry or by the main road.

Newquay airport is 24 miles away.

There are buses that connect Truro and St Mawes to Portscatho.

From St Mawes you can take ferries to Falmouth, and Place on St Anthony's head. Most of the extensive network of ferries run year round.

The cottage is right on the South West coastal path.

Distances:

Truro 15 miles - cathedral town with good shopping

St Mawes 6 miles - ferries to Falmouth, shopping, the Tresanton hotel, excellent dining options

Falmouth 16 miles (or by ferry from St Mawes) - National Maritime museum, cinema, lots of independent shops, marina

Eden project - 20 miles

Porthcurno 45 miles - Minack Theatre and Porthcurno telegraph museum

Further Details:

The village has an excellent pub, under new management. There is also a harbour club, that has regular open mic nights, films etc. The Boathouse in the village is a pleasant low key restaurant and tea rooms.

The village shop stocks a wide range of food, newspapers, drinks etc, and has a very good bakery.

There is also a Post Office, doctor's surgery, and various art galleries in the village.
