Place Lodge is nestled in a quiet valley by the main gates to Place House on St Anthony Headland and is part of the Place Estate. This is the perfect place to escape from reality. There are few better places to enjoy the true beauty of the idyllic Roseland Peninsula. It is surrounded by rolling rural landscapes, woodlands, stunning walks with the best views of St Mawes, Place House, Pendennis Castle, Falmouth, and the Carrick Roads. Explore St Anthony Head and the Lighthouse, famously used as the base for the TV series Fraggle Rock and Molunan Beaches, which are right by the lighthouse and Cellars beach by Place Pool. Towan Beach is also close by; all of these beaches are dog-friendly and family safe.

The Lodge itself has traditional tall leaded windows; the living room is bright and airy. It oozes character; there is a Victorian fireplace to warm up those chilly winter evenings, a spacious kitchen diner complements the interior with an ornamental kitchen range and farmhouse table. There is a single bedroom with space for a cot or put up bed as well and also a shower room. To the rear is a sunny sheltered patio with BBQ, table, and chairs; roses and honeysuckle surround the courtyard, which is edged by ancient walls, the other side of the drive is a lawned area of garden which is ideal for picnics with small children or kicking a ball around. There are 2 bedrooms upstairs, a 5' double, a twin bedroom and a family bathroom.

Ground Floor: Front door leads into an entrance porch and on into the double aspect kitchen dining room, tall leaded windows, fully fitted units and appliances, ornamental Cornish range, farmhouse table and chairs.

A cottage in an oasis of peace, perfect for the active dog owner. We return here but recognise it would not suit everybody.

The lodge was situated towards the end of a quiet lane. It was a lovely place to relax and provide a base for day trips. The property was nice and clean and had all the facilities necessary. Thanks.

If you like an isolated cottage, this was the perfect spot. Superb walks from the front door, absolute dark and silence at night (apart from the owls). This part of Cornwall is completely magical and the cliff paths and beaches are amazing. In winter all the beaches are dog friendly, which suited us and our 2 lurchers. ItÂ’s a simple cottage but ideal for walkers - we loved it and will certainly go back.


We booked Place Lodge at the twelth hour after our original holiday cottage (In Wales) had boiler problems. We arrived with little expectation but were utterly delighted to have found this 'gem' of a property. The lodge was very 'Enid Blyton' and in a fabulous location just a few minutes walk to the Place Ferry slipway. The cottage felt 'homely' and a perfect place to unwind with stunning walks and beaches closeby. Had we been paying 'high season' prices we would have appreciated a few more welcome provisions - a pint of milk and washing up liquid at least - plus we felt the soft furnishings are looking rather tired. The house would also benefit from a deep clean as there were a number of very dusty lampshades and crumbs under the sofa cushions! None of this however distracted from our visit. We loved every minute exploring the Roseland Peninsula from a rather gorgeous little cottage.

We love the location, we have visited twice now and have booked again to come back next June. The cottage is very pretty and close to the Place ferry for popping across to St Mawes where we had a couple of fantastic meals at The Idle Rocks and The Tresanton. There are lots of lovely walks and beaches to explore nearby and our dog loved it too.


This is a very practical cottage for dog owners. It is tucked away and as such may not suit everyone. The road back to Portscatho can be "interesting" in the summer.


As dog owners , who like walking, this comfortable cottage suits our needs well. We have family in the area and it forms an excellent base.

Chris Rampton

it was a lovely cottage, but it had lots of cob webs and the skirting boards in the kitchen were very dusty and dirty, but the beds were lovely and comfortable and it was nice having a bathroom upstairs and a shower room down stairs all lovely and clean. The sitting area outside was really nice.

Paul Dean

The cottage was comfortable without removing the features of the place.All that you would need was provided. It was a good property for a dog owner. Walks start from the cottage both east and west, we rarely used the car

We have visited the Roseland Peninsula many times and particularly love St Anthonys and Portscatho as this part of the Peninsula is so quiet. However, we usually camp and we decided that the weather is just too unpredictable and so searched for the perfect cottage. As we have visited this area before and have often taken the little ferry from St Mawes to Place, we knew of these cottages and have always said we would stay there one day, to be honest we thought they would be expensive. How wrong we were! The Lodge is excellent value for money, very cosy, practical and perfect if you are taking your dogs. We never worried that the dogs would mess anything up - it was easy to keep them in an area without soft furnishings so that they could dry off and yet it wasn't too "precious" that we felt uncomfortable. The kitchen has everything you need, the two bathrooms are handy for if there are 4 of you, wifi excellent and good TV choice for those wet days! Location is absolutely perfect with great walks and not far from Portscatho and St Mawes. To be honest if you are there for a week there is so much to see within just a few miles that you won't need to venture very far. We certainly didn't - St Mawes and Portscatho were the furthest we went. A few don't miss things: The Hidden Hut at Portscatho, the little ferry across to St Mawes, a fishing trip from St Mawes, St Just church and a cream tea at the tea room just down the road at Towan Beach.
