Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Newquay at 30 Miles Nearest Barpub : Portscatho at 500 Metres Nearest Ferry : Plymouth at 60 Miles Nearest Train : St Austell at 20 Miles Nearest Restaurant : Portscathp at 500 Metres Nearest Beach : Portscatho at 500 Metres Car: necessary


The small sheltered harbour at low water turns into two beaches that are very sheltered. Portscatho, an attractive village (which in Cornish means ‘harbour of boats’) used to have a thriving pilchard fishing industry and is still the base for a number of inshore boats. The two beaches are known locally as Tatams and Porth and are joined at low water: both are good for sailing kayaking and similar watersports (but not Jet Skis). There are fine views across Gerrans Bay.


Newquay Airport is about 20 miles away.

Truro and St Austell have the nearest train and coach stations.

Road travel is via M4/M5 from the North and East then via Okehampton or Plymouth at Exeter.


St Mawes is about 5 miles away - another lovely village on the Roseland with a castle, ferry to Falmouth, small beach, sailing - great for lunch at the Tresanton Hotel.

Mevagissey is 15 miles away - another picturesque fishing village with a great range of individual shops, lovely harbour, fresh fish, good range of dining options.

The local village of Veryan is about 5 miles away - which also has a corner shop for supplies.

Further Details:

Main shop is Ralph's, which is open 7 days a week. Fresh pasties each day.

Post Office operates a cash machine service at the counter and sells all sorts of things, not least for being on the beach and fishing.

Butcher, AR Day, is next-door to Ralph's and is very good.

The Harbourmaster, Simon Taffinder has an excellent shop for very fresh fish, lobster and crabs up at Curgurrel Farm in Rosevine (TR2 5EN) a mile away.

Half way up the hill on the left there is a doctor’s surgery and dispensary open 8:30 am to 5:00 pm during the week.

There are two pubs which both do food. Graham runs The Plume in the village. At the top of the hill, technically the village of Gerrans, Dave runs the Royal Standard.

The Boathouse Restaurant in the village is known for its fish. It also has a fish and chip window adjacent to the main restaurant. It is open early evening only.

In high summer there is also an increasingly famous beach shack restaurant above Porthcurnick Beach called the Hidden Hut

The Driftwood Hotel just outside of the village is amazing.

There are three art galleries in Portscatho.
