Roseland Peninsula Information
Roseland Peninsula The Roseland Peninsula is one of the very special places in England. Being an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, it has so much to offer the visitor. The peninsular offers breathtaking coastal walks, sailing around the coast and in the Carrick Roads, the infamous St Mawes castle built by Henry VIII, stunning sub tropical gardens and National Trust walks and properties. The Roseland has many picturesque country pubs and stylish first class restaurants and really does have everything you could wish for in a Cornish holiday!


St Mawes
St MawesSt Mawes was originally a sleepy Cornish fishing village; it is now a stylish holiday destination enjoyed by both family and couples all year round. St Mawes is now the yachtsmans paradise with stylish hotels and lots for the visitor to see and do. Enjoy one of the many coastal walks, wander up to the Tudor Castle or, just lean on the sea wall and absorb the sea air and watch the sailing boats. Morning coffee taken on the terrace of the Rising Sun or the St Mawes Hotel is makes for a most enjoyable break or, lunch sat at a table outside in the little alley of the Victory Inn watching the world go by takes a lot of beating!. Passenger ferries run regular scheduled passages to Falmouth. The National Maritime Museum and Pendennis Castle are a short walk from the piers in Falmouth harbour. There are fabulous waterside walks that can be accessed by the Place Ferry. All in all, St Mawes offers a host of differing opportunities for visitors to enjoy.

St Just in Roseland
St Just Chruch Nestling in a quiet bay is the church of St. Just in Roseland. There can be fewer more stunningly beautiful places to visit than this. It is beleived that Jesus together with his father, visited this area whilst trading tin; even if this fable is far from the truth, there is a particulay cerenity and tranquility that is almost unique to this beautiful backwater.



The River Fal and Carrick Roads
The views from St. Mawes looking accross to Falmouth and the Carrick Roads are spectacular; enjoy watching the shipping movements from the harbour or, the sailing boats racing in the "roads". Pleasure boats offer regular trips up the river and Carrick Roads on most afternoons, we suggest that this is the ideal way to absorb the beauty of the Fal Estuary. A wider view is available from St. Anthony head, located on the easterly point at the entrance to the harbour; this headland makes an ideal place to enjoy National walks that border the coast.

Portloe and Veryan
Portloe is considered to be the jewel in the crown of the Roseland peninsula and one of the prettiest villages in Cornwall. Veryan is famous for its thatched Round Houses. The New Inn, a typical Cornish village pub offers a warm welcome.
