About Penhaligon's

A charming cottage with traditional stone exterior on the Roseland peninsula.

Tucked away down a leafy seclusion is this romantic, one-bedroom hideaway. A thatched roof, traditional stone exterior and a small enclosed garden add to its chocolate-box charm. You could just escape the outside world and snuggle by its stove for a few hours or even days. 

But don’t get too comfortable, as there are cliffs, creeks, estuaries, headlands, woods and beaches to explore nearby. 

You’ll have the Roseland Peninsula at your feet with Towan Beach a minutes’ walk. The nearby South West Coast Path will lead you south to St Anthony Head or north to fishing village, Portscatho, where you can wonder around the shops and indulge in a classic pub lunch. Head to nearby Trellisick gardens on board the King Harry Ferry from St Mawes. Your stay at Penhaligon's helps us look after the surrounding area and special places in our care.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
