This charming cottage, secluded and comfortable, lies on the edge of the hamlet. It has an attractive garden and wonderful views over the rolling fields towards the sea. It is a perfect base from which to explore this sequestered and fascinating corner of the Roseland peninsula. In the heart of Bohortha, you can find The Old School House, a cosy retreat for two.
The nearby beach of Towan is the perfect spot for those seeking an old fashioned beach holiday. The combination of cliffs, creeks, estuaries, headlands, woods and beaches linked by many miles of footpath, gives a fantastic variety of walking routes.
Not far away the tip of the Roseland peninsula St Anthony Head offers panoramic views of St Mawes, Falmouth and the Carrick Roads. Or take a closer look at seabirds from the bird hide, including fulmars as they glide across the vertical rock faces. You may also spot shags congregating on the low rock near the lighthouse and grey seals on the rocks at the tide falls.
Close by is the village of Portscatho; during the 18th and 19th Centuries it was an ideal base for the pilchard fleets, it’s still a fishing port today but on a much smaller scale. Here you will find several shops, restaurants and pubs along with art galleries.
