And Relax… we’re on the Roseland

Four picture-perfect holiday cottages on the Roseland Peninsula offer a change of pace in one of Cornwall’s prettiest and sleepiest corners.

Just a short drive from Cornwall’s county town, Truro and a ferry ride from the vibrant university town of Falmouth, the quiet Roseland Peninsula feels very little changed by time.

An area of outstanding natural beauty, there’s quiet beaches, calm waters and rolling countryside aplenty. The Muddy clan recently bought a little dinghy and the Roseland has become our weekend playground. Finding beaches that can’t be reached easily from the land is our new favourite sport.

The Roseland is also worth a visit for all the foodie opportunities – from the Idle Rocks and Watch House in St Mawes to the incredibly well-loved beach cafe, The Hidden Hut in Portscatho. And The Driftwood, just up the road, has one of Cornwall’s few Michelin stars.

There are so many reasons to visit – and I’ve just discovered another. St. Anthony-in-Roseland Cottages are four, gorgeous self-catering stays, perfectly situated for a holiday in this part of Cornwall.

St. Anthony-in-Roseland Cottages are situated on the Place Estate , surrounded by sea and private and National Trust farmland. Whether you want to take it easy or get busy exploring, these family-run cottages offer beautiful accommodation and a brilliant base for your holiday.

The largest property is Meadow House, a bright and sunny cottage, which is a fantastic option for families, sleeping up to nine people.

Barton Bothy is semi-detached but totally secluded from the main farmhouse and affords lovely views. This cottage sleeps four or five, making it ideal for couples or smaller families.

Just by the slipway is pretty Place Lodge. Originally the coachman’s house, this Victorian cottage is another great choice for families with a sunny and sheltered patio and secret garden.

Enchanting Lavender Cottage is a magical place for couples to stay. Tucked in a corner of the walled garden, the cottage and its small terrace are an oasis of peace even in high season.

Dogs are welcome and all the cottages have open fires with logs provided, so are comfortable and cosy to come back to after a day exploring the designated AONB, walking the heritage coastline or messing about in boats (moorings and dinghy park are available).



Good for: A brilliant choice of dog-friendly, family accommodation in the Roseland Peninsula. Long walks, beach days, open fires – what’s not to like?

Not for: If you prefer the bustle of a town, you might find Roseland life a little sleepy.

The damage: Barton Bothy (sleep 4/5) from £470 – £885, Meadow House (sleep 6/7)  from £725 – £1800, Place Lodge (sleep 5/6) £600 – £1430,  Lavender  (sleep 2/3)  from £395 – £632.
