Some years ago we had several consecutive annual summer holidays at Portscatho, and I have very fond memories of the place. Whenever I'm back in Cornwall I invariably pay a visit and sit on the cliff-top overlooking the small harbour and Gerrans Bay, enjoying a warm pasty that I'll have bought from the village shop. Portscatho is on the beautiful Roseland Peninsula in the south-west of Cornwall. It is just a few miles from St Mawes, where the ferry provides access to Falmouth.

I had often wondered what this pretty little square-shaped white building was on the clifftop overlooking the harbour at Portscatho. This is a former fishing village on the Roseland Peninsula in south-west Cornwall. As is so often the case, British Listed Buildings came up with the answer. Apparently it dates from the early 1800s - the Georgian era - and is a one-roomed boatmen's shelter. The walls are of slatestone rubble, and the pyramidal roof is of slate. It is Grade II-listed.

Portscatho is a pretty little former fishing village on the Roseland Peninsula in the south-west of Cornwall, a few miles from St Mawes. There's a very nice pub, the Plume of Feathers, a general store that sells freshly baked pasties, and one or two other shops and cafes. Over the years we've had many holidays here, usually staying in a large Edwardian house on the cliff-top. When we visited in March this year there were no inshore fishing boats at anchor in the tiny harbour though several small boats were to be seen at the top of the harbour's ramp.

We have had many holidays at the delightful little village of Portscatho, a few miles from St Mawes on the Roseland Peninsula in south-west Cornwall. The tide is in at present but when it is out there is a gorgeous sandy beach. In the distance is the little cove at Porthcurnick, with Porthcurnick Beach which is owned by the National Trust.
