Roseland Information, Cornwall
The Roseland Peninsula of Cornwall is one of the most beautiful places in the British Isles. Designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, it has so much to offer the visitor! From breathtaking coastal walks to sailing in the Carrick Roads. From visiting historic castles to stunning sub tropical gardens. From experiencing picturesque country pubs to stylish first class restaurants. The Roseland really has everything you could wish for in a Cornish holiday – a week is simply not enough!
St Mawes & Portscatho are both very popular and booking early for your favourite cottages is recommended. Nearby Rosevine, St Just in Roseland and Philleigh offer easy access to the coast whilst retaining peaceful country charm. For some Portloe and Veryan are firm favourites with Carne Beach just a few minutes away. Tucked inland Tregony sits at the gateway to the Roseland Peninsula. This provides really access to explore the whole of Cornwall.
St Mawes has changed dramatically over the last 100 years. Once a sleepy fishing village it’s now a stylish holiday destination all year round. Overlooking its stunning bay, St Mawes is now the yachtsmans paradise with lots for the visitor to see & do. Take a stroll along the harbour up the road to Henry’s VIII’s famous Castle. From here you can see breathtaking views over the Carrick Roads to Falmouth. Take the foot ferry to Falmouth to visit the National Maritime Museum or Pendennis Castle. The little Place Ferry will take you to St Anthonys Head or there are numerous boat trips you can take around the bay.
St Just in Roseland
No visit to the Roseland Peninsula is complete without seeing the beautiful church and gardens at St Just in Roseland. Probably the only sub tropical churchyard in the British Isles, it is a beautiful & tranquil place. From here you can also walk into St Mawes along the cliff path past lots of lovely hidden away beaches accessible only at low tide.
