One mile seaward of Rosudgeon is Acton Castle, commanding the peninsula between Stackhouse Cove (200 yards walk away, low-tide sand) and Prussia Cove, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. While on St Michael�s Mount in 1772, the romantic but rheumatic seaweed expert, John Stackhouse, spotted the site for his wedding present to his betrothed, Susanna Acton. Built of granite, Grade II listed, it has formal shared gardens and lawns, slate terraces, sunken garden with pond (unfenced) and sensational sea views, including of St Michael�s Mount. Rough private drive to it. Farmland all round. Coast Path. The castle is now divided into apartments. We let three.

... named after the wife of Acton Castle's eccentric creator, Susanna's Apartment is on the first floor (arrow 4). It is approached by external slate steps at the back. Slate-floored hall to very large, light, airy living/dining/fitted kitchen (TV/DVD) with mullioned windows, window seat and cushions to enjoy stunning views along the coast to St Michael's Mount. Well-equipped kitchen area (dishwasher, washer-drier, microwave, freezer, larder fridge). Two steps down to two bedrooms � a double, and a twin (2'6" beds). Pretty bathroom (suite plus hand-shower) and loo. Unbeatable views and beautiful sunsets.

About this location

The Cornwall region

The End of England - the Penwith peninsula: a wild land, but much inhabited since long, long ago; and very beautiful in its wildness. The equal-top coastal drive in the West Country is along its north coast from Pendeen to Zennor to St Ives (Exmoor�s sea-view road is its rival): gorse and bracken hills, granite-topped and bouldered, above you; below, small drystone-walled fields sprinkled with sheep, granite farmhouses and barns, spectacularly rocky headlands (to walk), and - if you�re lucky and it�s evening - a deep, deep blue sea beyond. There are Stone Age burial quoits, Bronze Age hut circles, two remarkably preserved Iron Age villages.

On the softer southern coast, Mousehole is Cornwall�s prettiest fishing village, Newlyn the West Country�s busiest; built into the cliffs above Porthcurno�s sandy cove is the Minack Theatre - a �must go�, but wrap up warm. Sennen Cove�s huge sandy beach is wonderful for children and sunsets, as well as surfing. The tall chimneys of extinct tin-mining stand strangely romantically above the sea at Botallack. All this and the light bring painters, especially to St Ives. Penzance is a good, sensible town and base with fine prom for strolling. Helicopters or a ship will take you to the Scilly Isles; the mainline railway to and from the world you left behind. Your first glimpse of St Michael�s Mount is one of travelling�s thrills. Go to Land�s End if you must (only). All round the peninsula goes the coast path, of course - one of the very best stretches of it.

Rosudgeon

Rosudgeon: hamlet (pub, shop) a mile from the sea (beaches), 6 miles from Penzance and 3 from St Michael�s Mount. Sandy beaches at Perran Sands, Marazion and Praa Sands, 2� miles. Spectacular cliff walks via Prussia Cove (once a smugglers� favourite), 1� miles. North coast surfing beaches and St Ives, 8. Golf nearby.
