It’s no surprise that a handful of A–list celebs hideaway on Roseland Peninsula come the holidays. What with its buckets full of Cornish charm, secret coves and natural beauty, this tranquil nook is overflowing with the county’s finest bounty. Eye–popping scenery littered with smugglers’ coves, craggy headlands and verdant farmland is peppered with picturesque pockets of civilisation: stone cottages tumbling to the water’s edge where fishermen unload the catch of the day. And while the fishermen rub shoulders with visitors in cosy local inns, their sumptuous seafood gets plated up in sophisticated restaurants a pebble’s throw from the sea. St Mawes and Portscatho offer a tempting choice of places to eat whilst the sandy beaches of Porthcurnick, Pendower and St Mawes welcome beach life. Hop on the ferry to Falmouth and explore this magical maritime haven. Cornish Gems offer a beautiful collection of properties in and around this area, begin your search below.
