Carn Scathe View

Welcome to Carn Scathe 2019!

Scathe is a 4 bedroom holiday cottage commanding superb views over Porthgwarra Cove, just a mile from Lands End. It has three double bedrooms and one twin bedroom. There are two bathrooms and another separate WC.

A former Cornish fisherman's cottage, Carn Scathe has been sympathetically renovated to create a large family living room and open plan kitchen / dining area decorated in coastal  blue stripes. The cottage is used by the owners who have a long association with Porthgwarra and maintain it to a very high standard. Once found, visitors return year after year!

The cottage has several terraces in a colourful garden with seating to relax, enjoy the spectacular view over the Cove and cook a barbecue on long summer evenings . Three of the four bedrooms have idyllic sea views, as do the downstairs lounge and dining rooms.

The South West Coast path is literally at the bottom of the garden, making the cottage an ideal base for walkers and birdwatchers, as well as providing easy access to beaches. A private car parking space is provided in the Cove car park, but access is about 200 yards away by foot. There is a reserved area to drop off luggage some 100 yards away. This makes it difficult for disabled access.

All linen and towels (not beach) are provided and there are no additional costs for electricity and heating. Sky TV (Sport and entertainment plus standard channels), a DVD and wireless broadband is provided. Small children should be supervised with the various steep steps and terraces.

The cottage overlooks the small family friendly beach and rocks at
Porthgwarra, where seals bob up and down in the water and basking sharks can be spotted. It is a 10 minute walk away from the stunning unspoilt beach at Porthchapel. The sheltered beach on the south coast at Porthcurno and the northern surfing beach at Sennnen Cove are both a short drive away.

The outdoor
Minack Theatre is close by, well worth a visit to look at the spectacular theatre on the cliffs, or to see a performance during the summer season.

If you like a family holiday, walking, bird watching, wildlife or just want to get away from it all in West Cornwall,
Carn Scathe is the place for you.

"..What can one say about the views? To take tea on the terrace watching Cornish choughs and seals. Priceless..."
