The kitchen is well equipped for you to get creative, a number of nearby farm shops offer locally sourced ingredients and you are never far from the freshest of Cornish fish! Lead from the dining area into a spacious and relaxing living room, choose to cosy up in the winter or simply catch up on the worlds events with the morning papers. Children can escape the adult chit-chat and spread out with games and toys. The ground floor also offers a shower room with WC, perfectly placed to hose off after the beach. From the living room, the staircase leads to the first floor and the beautiful collection of bedrooms each adorned with the finest luxury bedding and soft furnishings.

Really lovely, relaxing break. The cottage is beautiful and well equipped for a variety of fun activities and the location is FANTASTIC!

Lead from the kitchen door to the enviable cottage garden, brimming with colour from Spring to the autumn this really is a pocket of garden oasis. A smart patio area offers an al fresco dining option for all or retire to the warmth of the summer house as the sun sets. The lush green lawn is gently sloping with hidden away bench to catch the last of the sunshine. Step from your door and immerse yourself in the comings and goings of village life in St Mawgan. The friendly village stores is packed with all you could need and the adjoining tea room is well worth a visit. The local pub offers a warm welcome and serves tradtional pub-grub year round, they also have a large beer garden. For the green fingered in the party then the more unusual Japanese Garden and Bonsai Nursey is located in the village. The neighbouring woodlands lead walkers along the riverbank - perfect for dogs and children to stretch out. There is a very pretty walk that leads from the village to Mawgan Porth beach where guests can enjoy the large golden sand beach, perfect for surfing. If Cornish fare is on the agenda then you are well placed to indulge from Jamie Oliver's Fifteen on the Beach to Rick Steins plethora of eateries, fine beach side dining to cool chic cafe, this stretch of Cornish coastline is firmly pinned on the map for all things foodie. Sandy beaches, rolling surf, cliff top pathways and postcard worthy seascapes - welcome to North Cornwall!

Really lovely, relaxing break. The cottage is beautiful and well equipped for a variety of fun activities, the location is FANTASTIC! We enjoyed going down to Watergate Bay for breakfast, the kids loved the zip wires and we all enjoyed Segways! The Eden Project was interesting, Trerice beautiful (probably more suited to younger kids so we left the teens behind!) We were blessed with the weather and loved being so close to the beach!

Thanks for the wonderful christmas welcome. What a lovely, warm, snug and romantic stay we have had. Everything is just as it should be, lovely vibe in the cottage, wonderful roaring fire and the most comfortable bed in Cornwall.

Jimmy and Sassy

We have had the most wonderful 2 weeks at Rose Cottage. It is a delightful place to stay - a real home from home in a gorgeous village.

The Hills Family

We have had a lovely week in Rose Cottage - it is so cosy, comfortable and welcoming. We had a busy week keeping our 3 and a half year old happy and he loved it! His favourite thing to do is definitely the beach - Mawgan Porth and Watergate Bay are both on the doorstep and are beautiful.


Had the most amazing time at Rose Cottage. Such a comfortable and peaceful place to stay, thank you so much! The only downside? Leaving!


Have had a lovely time here - the cottage and the way you have made it/kitted it out provides a real 'home from home.' It made exploring easy (location great) and coming home a real joy. The village is lovely and the people were very friendly. Cornwall is a fantastic place but you enjoy it more when you are staying somewhere like Rose Cottage - it's fab! My young boys and my mum and dad all loved it.

Richard, Charlie and Harry

Thank you so much for this wonderful cottage. We had a fabulous week, everything was excellent. Love the friendly village and the lovely pub 'The Falcon Inn.' Thank you once again.

Louise, Mark, Lucy and Emma From Germany

We had an amazing time at Rose Cottage celebrating New Year and a 30th Birthday. The cottage is 'picture perfect', a great size and really well equipped. We have loved our time here in the warm and comfy beds, by the lovely fire and relaxing on the sofas. We even managed to toast the New Year (with heaters) in the summer house! Thanks for the welcome and making us feel at home!

Schneider Family and Guests

Many, many thanks for allowing us such a magical and memorable experience in Cornwall. This is the first time both families have had the pleasure of staying in Cornwall but hopefully many more to come in the years ahead!! Staying in Rose Cottage has been superb, with both families loving to cook, the cottage had everything one would need and that was much appreciated by all.

The Sharp Family & The Glen Family

Really great, loved it.

Rory Mitchell

Rose cottage was fabulous - a real home from home which we immediately settled into

Sharon Hutchings

Rose Cottage was lovely and in a quiet and relaxing setting which was just what was required.

Louise Nicholls

We had a very enjoyable time at Rose Cottage, the weather was excellent, we especially liked St Mawgan which was very friendly, was a great location in terms of access to beaches & country walks. It was a very happy place for 6 weary souls to enjoy the simple pleasures of life for a short while. The owner of Rose Cottage was also exceptionally thoughtful & generous with the provision of items. All in all a wonderful break & we would love to return so thank you very much.

Colin Ball

It was a lovely cottage, kept to a very high standard in a lovely village. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
