Roseland Peninsula Cottages

We've got 88 holiday cottages on the exquisite Roseland Peninsula. Holidays on the Roseland Peninsula are what memories are made of, from sprawling countryside and weaving rivers in St Just in Roseland to the stunning coastal scenes of Mevagissey and the many stunning beaches like Porthcurnick, Portscatho. Covering a beautifully unspoilt area, rich with variety, there is something for everyone to do and appreciate.Read more

St Mawes, perhaps the most well-known town within the Roseland Peninsula, faces Falmouth and boasts picture-perfect aesthetics and impressive history, with St Mawes Castle - one of the best-preserved of Henry VIII's coastal artillery fortresses - standing proudly on the edge of the bay. Here, some of the simple pleasures are the greatest, as you slowly meander through streets, taking in the sights and soaking in the atmosphere.

Playing beach cricket on the Roseland

If you're already acquainted with the area, why not take a short drive up to Carne Beach, overlooked by the famous Nare Hotel. Joining with the National Trust's Pendower beach at low tide, these two south-facing beaches are popular amongst tourists and families and offer plenty of swimming, relaxation and dining opportunities.

If beaches are your thing, it's also worth heading to Hemmick Beach and Vault Beach, a popular naturist beach, both of which are also found near Gorran Haven. Feeling the sand between your toes and dipping your feet in the sea should be on everyone's bucket list for Cornwall, but if you'd prefer something a little more cultural, the quaint villages of Portloe and Veryan offer guests a true Cornish experience of traditional villages, both with their own quirks and character.

St Mawes bay Bike riding the coast path on the Roseland

If you’re looking to bring your pet on holiday, the beaches on the Roseland are dog friendly all year round and there are a multitude of beautiful walks all around the peninsula. A particularly enjoyable walk joins the South West Coast Path and takes you around St Anthony Head, offering stunning sea views with glimpses of St Mawes and Pendennis. There are also a plethora of dog friendly pubs and cafes ready to welcome your weary feet and paws to offer you sustenance after a busy day out exploring.

 

Eating out on the Roseland is a treat in itself; it has become a foodie hot spot with excellent restaurants, pubs and beach cafes offering the finest local ingredients. 

 

With ferries regularly operating around the peninsula, you can easily enjoy a scenic cruise from your Roseland holiday cottage to make the most of our Cornish Riviera or take a drive up the road to discover some hidden gems. 

 

Here at Classic Cottages we've got the perfect selection of Roseland holiday cottages for you to rent, from short breaks to up to four weeks of holiday bliss. Whatever you wish, the perfect self catering accommodation will be waiting for you to come home to and map out your perfect break.
