This cottage is in an isolated location far down the Roseland Peninsula. Located slightly inland at the top of the hill there are beautiful walks straight out of the door. In good weather a footpath leads down to the Place ferry across to St Mawes (no parking at Place). The walk back up is stiff but quite doable. Towen Beach a short drive away is National Trust and great for a leasurely day. A great advantage it is a long drive so is quieter that most beaches in Cornwall. Portscatho is again again nearby and a super little resort with good shops for groceries, coffees and ice cream parlour. The food at the plume of feathers was not to our taste - quantity over quality. A great location. You need to be reasonably fit to enjoy fully. A car is essential. ...

Superb! We would have no hesitation in staying again.

Coastguards is a lovely quirky house, comfortable and cosy in late season. In a remote location, with great walks to local beaches and interesting sights. Local livestock visit occasionally! Depending how you want to spend your time together, or not, check out the rooms & layout if filling the house for a multi family holiday. Lots of space but split between 3 smaller sitting rooms, one with a cosy fire, one with tv and the 3rd a quiet space with a comfy sofa. Beds are lovely and comfortable & bathrooms flexible with good showers. Kitchen is well equipped ...

A beautifully presented cottage in a great position on the coastal footpath. We went in the Autumn but I imagine the garden is a great suntrap in the summer. The house is well equipped with everything you need for a fabulous holiday.
