Mizpah Cottage - a holiday cottage that sleeps 6 guests in 3 bedrooms
Lovely cottage in idyllic location
We always love a stay in Mizpah, and have been coming back to many years. The location is glorious and the cottage so comfortable, with a delightful private garden and excellent kitchen.
Mizpah is like my second home
Another lovely few days in Bohortha, this time I managed to drag my husband away from the farm.
He so enjoyed it, has agreed to come with me in September .
We found the Roseland Inn at Philleigh, about 15 min drive , fantastic food , lovely atmosphere , great service We went every evening it was so good .
Another great find was the bakery cafe on the road to St Mawes Not recommended if you are trying to lose weight . Salted caramel and pecan slice was simply heaven. There special board was really good too .
Weather forecast was rubbish but once again we were so lucky and had no rain until the journey home
Thank you to Sheila for her excellent housekeeping skills Always so nice to walk in to a spotless cottage
This is a quaint, authentic old cottage, set by a farm with sea views (5 min walk to coastal beach). Great for coastal walks, sea fishing, crabbing, ferries to St Maws and Falmouth, for shopping.
Reading previous reviews about shower/toilet being outside, I was worried about having to walk outside but it's in an outhouse, (which is attached to the house) it's really not that bad, just open the door, great for when you've been to the beach, lovely and warm and a bonus of having a nice sized bathroom room/toilet upstairs, to have a lovely bath if you don't like showers.
Very clean upon arrival, lots of information and leaflets in the drawer. Lots of kitchen utensils. A games cupboard, which kept us entertained. You can get your groceries delivered by ASDA and Tesco's. Lovely local pubs for food etc.
If you want to get away from the busy, hectic world we live in, this is the place to holiday, so peaceful and tranquil.
Excellent service from Lara, would definitely come again, thank you for the happy memories.
Another wonderful week at Mizpah with blue skies and lots of sunshine Fantastic walks,although the Nat Trust not clearing the footpaths this year Path from Bohortha to Place Ferry very overgrown with high stinging nettles.Also St Anthony’s Head to Porth , broken gate etc
Not good for anyone wearing shorts or children Hopefully they will get on with it soon It’s the same on Exmoor where I live .One Point I will make is that the garden at Mizpah is looking very untidy Weeds in front of cottage , overgrown hedge in other garden broken table left by shed
Lovely stay in a peaceful cottage in glorious location
The only shame was there was nothing in the cottage not even washing up liquid or cleaning materials.
A welcome pack as in many other cottages we have stayed in would be a thoughtful and welcoming idea, especially as the nearest shop is a ferry ride away!
We loved the ferries and the walks and the lovely house and garden.
We had a very enjoyable stay in Mizpah, having first stayed here in the 90s. The cottage was as we remembered it - in a wonderful quiet location for some fabulous coastal walks, easy access to Place ferry for a visit to St.Mawes and a lovely garden with great views. The cottage is warm and comfortable with everything we required for our short break. Although a little apprehensive about the outhouse, it was fine and the shower was hot! Yes, a shower inside would be better but the advantages of this little cottage outweigh this minor inconvenience.
Portscatho and its neighbouring village of Gerrans are located on the eastern coast of the Roseland Peninsula, Cornwall, overlooking the dramatic Gerrans Bay. A truly peaceful waterside village, Portscatho is a lovely place for a holiday. There are miles of coastal and countryside footpaths to explore, particularly along St Anthony's Head. Portscatho was once a busy fishing harbour, but now it has become a haven for artists due to the striking light which is particularly good in the morning sun. More than anything, Portscatho is a relaxing place. The beaches such as Porthcurnick and Towan are simply idyllic and are only minutes from the village. With a superb local butchers shop, 2 great little pubs and a well stocked local store, Portscatho and Gerrans are a lovely place to spend a holiday.
Mizpah is about 8 minutes drive along the St Anthony Headland from Portscatho, in the little hamlet of Bohortha. The beaches at Towan and St Anthony are only a short drive away (about 1mile). Please do have a look at the location map for a more detailed idea of the position. The St Anthony Headland walks can be taken straight from the cottage. You can also walk to the Place Ferry landing stage where during the day you can catch the boat to St Mawes. In the evenings, there is a water taxi available (booking essential).
