Explore St Mawes & the Roseland
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 the Roseland is home to Mediterranean style Lamorran Gardens, Poppy Cottage Garden, an inspirational plantsman’s garden, and Caerhays Castle Gardens with its fabulous collection of magnolias.
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.
