This secluded, extra-comfortable and carefully maintained self-catering chalet — a perfect refuge in summer and winter alike — is hidden away in a corner of one of Cornwall’s most unspoiled and beautiful areas, the Roseland Peninsula, bordered on one side by the famous sailing waters of the Carrick Roads, on the other by the English Channel.

The chalet offers a spacious, triple-aspect living/dining room with a wood-burner and with French doors giving onto a full-length west-facing verandah (just perfect for that evening drink), a well-equipped kitchen, two bathrooms, including one en suite, and two bedrooms — a double-bedded master bedroom, and a second bedroom with two single bunks (there is also a drop-down double bed in the living/dining room, cunningly disguised as a bookcase!) With state-of-the-art insulation in walls, floors and ceilings, the chalet is cool in summer and exceptionally snug in winter (when the thermostatic panel heaters also come into their own).

Set amongst lawns and trees at the very narrowest point of the peninsula, with spectacular views over woods and farmland, the chalet (one of just five on the site) is 400 metres from a wonderful but little-known sandy beach on one side, and 50 metres from a picture-book winding creek and its tidal estuary on the other. It offers perfect peace — but also proximity to a unique range of attractions, not least the astonishing Eden Project. There are some excellent country inns in the vicinity — and a superb 7-day village shop in Portscatho, just over a mile away, which also offers other useful amenities such as a post office, a GP practice with its own dispensary, a pub, and even a butcher’s shop.

Driving right down to the chalet is fine from circa May to circa mid-September — but for the rest of the year the topsoil is almost always too soft. The chalet is a short walk down past the other four chalets in this beautiful private setting.

The Cornwall region

Cornwall needs little introduction: although steeped in history with its Celtic roots, its erstwhile world dominance in mining and mining technology, its (in)famous wreckers, its keen embrace of Methodism etc. etc., its appeal as one of Britain's favourite holiday destinations lies chiefly in its exceptionally temperate climate and its unique combination of an unspoiled, often rugged interior, and an endlessly fascinating coastline that offers everything from wild cliffs and derring-do surfing to pretty coastal towns and villages and countless magnificent sandy beaches, many of them visited only by those in the know — like our own Towan Beach.

St. Anthony

Rightly designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Roseland offers a magnificent unspoiled landscape of woods, fields and lanes girdled by a shoreline of coves, cliffs and sandy beaches made easily accessible by the famous South West Coastal Path. There are special treasures here like the round houses at Veryan, the uniquely beautiful waterside church of St. Just-in-Roseland with its sub-tropical churchyard, the ancient King Harry Ferry — and a goodly sprinkling of fine country inns offering tasty food. The quaint conjoined villages of Portscatho and Gerrans are an easy walk away along a bridleway or along the SW Coastal Path. A little further afield are the chalk-and-cheese towns of Falmouth and Truro — the bustling Bohemian port and the graceful county capital (bring your own boat and you can sail direct to both!) The National Trust cares not only for the coastal strip but also for some of the area’s finest gardens, including Trelissick and Glendurgan; other no less famous local gardens include Trebah and the Lost Gardens of Heligan. The numerous unique attractions within easy driving distance include the Eden Project, Falmouth Maritime Museum and the Tate at St. Ives.

"Exactly What is being told"

I rented this chalet during end of 2012. We were 4 adults and one infant. This chalet is at great place. Its remote but very near to nearby village. Its about 5 minute drive to nearby grocery, pubs and restaurant. Beach is just 10-15 mins walk away with access route. Good sandy beach give you a feel of private beach. We spent about 12 GBP for 3 days for electricity during winter, but that is when we cooked our food few times. This chalet has all you need including wine opener. There are lot of places to see nearby. Nice place and good communication with owner. I recommend this place for a small responsible group.

"Peaceful and relaxing stay in a beautiful location."

Having visited the Roseland peninsula on a number of occassions and stayed at various cottages in the area we were extremely comfortable, warm and content in the Chalet. It's located in an excellent position, with lovely views of the open countryside, close to the excellent Towan Beach and is blessed with numerous walks (both coastal and woodland). The Chalet itself was easily big enough for our family of 4 (plus dog!) and is very well appointed, very comfortable and warm. The surrounding area is a family favourite and didn't dissapoint with seals on the beach and in the sea, walks around Trelissick, walks on many beaches (Pendower Porthlunney, Portholland......which the dog enjoyed) and visits toFalmouth and St Ives. Another thoroughly enjoyable holiday and rest, after a hectic Christmas, and the accommodation was spot on!
