Rose Cottage is a delightful Cornish cottage, one of a small group of original cottages in the centre of Trevone, about five minutes walk to the attractive sandy beach. The main Victorian cottage dates from 1870, while the single storey sitting room is much earlier. Rose is a charming cottage with original beams and layout, built facing south, with enclosed sunny front gardens. The cottage now has a modern bathroom and all up to date kitchen equipment. It has been owned by our family since 1920, and has been let by myself to holiday visitors for over thirty years - with many regular bookings over that time.
We accommodate a maximum of 7 guests in bedrooms and there is an occasional bed in the sitting room. We offer a DISCOUNT for 5 guests or less, when we close off one bedroom - the Madrips Room (see below).

Trevone has a golden sandy cove, and beyond it a wide, rocky beach with shells, rock pools and a natural swimming pool. This part of the North Cornish coast, where the Atlantic waves pound the shore, is very popular for surfing and the sandy beach is patrolled by lifeguards during the popular part of the year. The Beach Cafe is popular for refreshments and restaurant, and also has a good surf shop. The Well Parc Hotel and Pub caters for most tastes and during the summer runs many charity events. There are lovely scenic walks on the coastal path, westwards towards Harlyn, Trevose Head and beyond, or north-east to Tregudder Gorge, Stepper Point, the Camel estuary and Padstow.
The harbour at Padstow is flanked by charming old buildings and bustling narrow streets. The town is a busy tourist centre, and has a variety of restaurants and eating places, including Rick Stein's famous Seafood Restaurant.
For visitors with more energetic inclinations a pedestrian and cycle ferry runs from Padstow to Rock where sailing, windsurfing and water skiing are available. The Camel Trail, for cyclists and walkers, starts in Padstow and follows the old railway track beside the river to Wadebridge and beyond, there are good golf clubs at Constantine and St Enodoc (near Rock) and horse riding at Padstow.
On the First day of May annually Padstow celebrates the advent of summer with street celebration, parades around the town of the Old 'Oss and the Blue 'Oss each with its own followers, accompanied by music from drums and accordions.
