The West Country region
The Roseland Peninsular on the south coast of Cornwall is a beautiful secluded rural area with deep wooded valleys,rolling farm land, secret coves and beaches.
The 12th century St Just Church is a famous beauty spot attracting many visitors which is set in fantastic sub tropical gardens overlooking a tidal pool, located next to the local boatyard on a gravel bar.
There are many National trust attractions close to the cottage with green lanes and footpaths cris-crossing the penninsular connecting the local communities, which are ideal for walking,cycling and exploring.
From the front door of the cottage you can join the south coast path, which winds it way to St Mawes. From the path you can enjoy the fabulous extensive views across the water towards Falmouth and St Anthony's head.
St Mawes is the closest village, it has all ammenities,shops, restaurants and Pubs. High on the hill tops of St Mawes and Pendennis, castle fortifications were built during the Henry Vlll period,overlooking the habour entrance, protecting Falmouth from invaders, these are open to visitors throughout the summer.
With such a rich maritime history, there are many local ports and museums close to the cottage, such as Mevagissy, Malpas, Charsletown and Port Loe which are all worth a visit.
Over looking St Austell The Eden Project is one of the largest and most popular attractions in the country, set in an old slate quarry, the Bio spheres, if weather is wet lend themselves to entertaining children, with the many activites provided under cover.
Close by there is a china clay museum, explaining the extraction process and uses of the clay produced over hundreds of years. When the clay had been extracted, it was exported through the port of Charlestown, to be delivered all over the globe, here you can still see the square riggers moored in the harbour.
When visiting the Lizard the most Southerly point in the UK, most people make a bee line for St Keverne to enjoy Roskilly's locally made ice cream a children's paradise and heaven for adults too!
The Maritime museum in Falmouth has interactive exhibtions throughout the year. There is a pedestrian ferry that operates from St Mawes to Falmouth, this service gives excellent views of the harbour from the water . There is also a ferry service from Falmouth to the National Trust gardens at Trelissick, which winds up the ever narrowing river Fal, look out for the Smugglers Inn, the cream teas are great!
The West Country which has a temperate climate, is blessed with many gardens which are open to the public including the Lost Gardens of Heligan
A short drive from the cottage is the amazing King Harry chain Ferry, it is a short cut to the old market, cathedral city of Truro, and an adventure in itself.
One of the many notebale old fishing villages is Portscatho. Due to the "special" light it has a thriving local artist community, where their work can be seen in many specialist galleries.
With so many small outlying communites, all of whom had a pub! finding these bastions can be fun, taking in an atmosphere, sampling the local food and ale is very British. The kings head at Ruan Lannihorn, The Roseland Inn at Philleigh, the Ship Inn at Portloe and the Royal Standard at Gerrans are but a few to be found on the peninsular, most welcome families.

"A CORNISH DREAM!"
We stumbled upon Point House by accident after a cottage we had hoped to stay in was flooded. This ended up being a VERY good thing because the cottage has the most idyllic setting, proving to be our best stay in the Roseland to date. It's right on the creek - you couldn't ask for a better view if you tried. There's parking, a pretty garden that wraps right around the property and your own steps down to the water. Inside, the bedroom is bright and large, with a huge kitchen (everything you need) and snug lounge and dining room. There is a fire too, but the weather was so brilliant during our stay, we didn't light it. We used the barbecue almost every evening, dining outside on the large wooden table. If you need space, a garden (something you don't get when staying in the centre of St Mawes), Point House is your place. We've already booked for this summer...
