Fiona & Bob Kendall How was your holiday?: We had a wonderful relaxing week staying at Rostowan. Such a beautiful quiet area and lovely walks along the coast or down to the beach with the dogs. St Mawes is beautiful and the surrounding areas. Cottage is amazing. Hope to go back again next year.

Rostowan is a coastal cottage situated in a very private rural location, close to St.Mawes on the South Coast of Cornwall, in the area where ITV filmed a large part of the Caroline Quinten 'Cornwall' series, especially The Hidden Hut...
Rostowan offers Dog-Friendly accommodation with the Beach on your doorstep.
Rostowan is located on the stunning Roseland Peninsula on Cornwall's south coast, which enjoys spectacular sea and rivers walks and views, woodlands and fields, winding lanes, ancient buildings and churches, much of it under the careful ownership of the National Trust.
At the very narrowest point of the peninsula, where Porth Creek and the sea almost cut it in half, Rostowan Villa nestles in a peaceful location with the creek just a stone's throw away on one side and the sea within earshot on the other. Towan beach itself is just a short walk down the lane and even in the height of summer is usually very quiet. This Beach is dog-friendly all year round.
The stunning harbour village of Portscatho is within walking distance, which is perfect for enjoying a bite to eat and a drink or trying your hand at catching crabs off of the harbour wall.
St. Mawes is a larger town and can be accessed by car, or by walking around the creek to Place Manor where it is possible to catch the foot passenger ferry. From St. Mawes it is possible to catch a number of different ferries to places such as Falmouth and Truro (the capital of Cornwall).
Due to this Property's extremely private location, it is approached from a country track of about 1/4 of a mile, we have an ordinary family Car which has no problems with the track but we just thought we should mention it.
Holiday at Rostowan

We had an amazing stay our first visit to Rostowan the first week of June this year. Beautiful secluded quiet cottage. Lovely walks and beach very close that you can take the dogs on. Weather was unbelievably hot this year. Lovely walk to Porthscatho pub.
