The Roseland is a lovely quiet corner of Cornwall filled with crop fields, grazing cattle, meandering lanes and delightful creeks and villages. Secluded beaches and scenic headlands can be found along its southern coastline.

The Roseland’s principal village, St Mawes, is situated at the southern end of the peninsula. A picturesque harbour with whitewashed houses guarded by Henry VIII’s iconic Castle, St Mawes remains a centre for a wide range of watersports activities.

The peaceful Roseland Peninsula is a walkers’ paradise, offering a great variety of wonderful coastal and inland walks. Many exotic plants thrive in the mild climate, and St Mawes is home to Mediterranean style Lamorran Gardens, a four acre subtropical site on a south facing slope with far reaching views to St Anthony Head.

The Lost Gardens of Heligan are just a short drive away. You can explore the Roseland villages and hamlets such as the twin villages of Gerrans and Portscatho, Veryan with its famous roundhouses and Portloe with its tiny harbour.
