This very pretty former farm cottage, part of the Rosteague Manor courtyard buildings, is located in a lovely rural setting at the end of a private lane on the 200 acre Rosteague Estate.
The cottage has been sensitively restored and is full of character, decorated throughout in natural colours with a mix of antique and contemporary furnishings. Ledge and brace doors, panelled walls, pegged oak beams, granite lintels and sloping eaves all add to the charm but please watch the low ceiling on the stairs and upstairs hall (duck or grouse!).
All the family can relax and enjoy time together in the cosy sitting-room, all warm and toasty thanks to the wood-burner.
Outside, the terrace and lawn area is exceptionally sunny and ideal for al fresco dining, so if the weather is as hoped, adults and children alike will be able to barbecue after a busy day exploring this stunning area of Cornwall.
In its unique rural setting, the privately-owned estate is made up of gorgeous surrounding pastures, that lead gently down to its own mile of shell covered coastline - with glassy rock pools and plenty of space for children (and dogs) to run free. The National Trust Towan Beach is only a short walk down the public bridleway from the properties and there are many wonderful public footpaths, coastal hikes and creekside walks from your doorstep.
The beautiful village of Portscatho is a five minute drive away, the perfect place for a pub lunch!
The cottage has three bedrooms but is more suited to a maximum of four adults and two children as six adults may find it a bit of a squeeze.
Sitting-room with TV, DVD player and wood-burner

Take care of the beams in the bedrooms, as well as on the stairs. Because of the smaller twin room, one of the beds is not an average size and so Rosteague is more suited to parties of up to 4 adults and 2 children.
