Step Inside

Rosey Cottage is a traditional West Country stone cottage located in the popular coastal town of Carbis Bay, just on the outskirts of St Ives. Whatever the occasion, this quintessential cottage offers the perfect base for a holiday by the sea. Arrive through the attractive garden and enter through the double kitchen doors. The kitchen is flooded with natural light and is wonderfully kitted with all you could need for holiday cooking be it lunch on the go or celebratory summer supper. Lead from the kitchen into the separate dining room with large wooden dining table and chairs. The living room has maintained the cottage charm with wooden beams and windows, this beautiful room has been thoughtfully created with ample seating, a large TV and soft neutral colour palette. Bedroom three can be found on the ground floor, an attractive King bedded room dressed in fresh whites and splashes of green. From the living room, a central staircase leads to the first floor with large indulgent family bathroom and further 2 bedrooms. Choose from the master bedroom with stylish ensuite rain shower, sink under soft duvets after a day on the coast and enjoy lazy mornings planning your holiday adventures. Children will enjoy the pretty fresh yellows and relaxing ambience of the twin bedded room. 

From your Holiday Door

The cottage garden really is a wonderful place to kick off your shoes and soak up the sunshine. Double doors open up from the kitchen and the living space creating a wonderfully open holiday environment in the warmer months. A large dining table and chairs set the scene for outside dining and lazy afternoons. Natural granite stone evokes the Cornish scenery with steps leading to the higher level with established flower beds brimming with wild and Spring flowers, flourishing Camelias and evergreens. The parking area is located approx 50 yards from the house allowing easy access. From Rosey Cottage, immerse yourself in the natural beauty of West Cornwall. The nearby beaches of Porthminster, Porthmeor, Porthkidney and Carbis Bay are all within easy access offering some of the best swimming waters in the county. If Cornish fare is on the agenda then enjoy the plethora of restaurants and country pubs or cool coastal cafes and beach bars. Follow the coast road heading West and discover a more wild and windswept Cornwall, the Cornish villages of Sennen and Mousehole are well worth a visit and take in dramatic seascapes at the iconic Land's End.

Gavin McHale

Rosey cottage was beautiful, with a fantastic garden. The welcome pack was a lovely surprise and the house was stocked with board games, DVDs and books. The local area was fantastic but would recommend having a car to explore. We were so lucky with the weather and took advantage by heading to the beach.
