About Towan Cottage

On the beautiful Roseland peninsula with an enclosed garden and close to Towan beach.

Towan Cottage is a cosy holiday cottage in a stunning location on the Roseland peninsula. Boasting a wood burning stove in the sitting room and substantial enclosed garden, Towan Cottage is a great place for a family break. It can also be combined with neighbouring cottage, Porth Farm House, via an interconnecting door, for larger parties of up to eight people and three dogs. 

After an alfresco lunch, take a five minute stroll to Towan Beach. This quiet beach is the perfect place to sit back and unwind. The sea here is perfect for paddlers too. The tiny coves of Great Molunan and Little Molunan at St. Antony Head are also nearby.

Further afield, the famous port town of Falmouth has lots to offer. Enjoy a Cornish pasty from one of the many bakeries, stop for a drink at a quayside pub and marvel at the great ships hauled up at the docks.

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.
