The simple things are often the best with a holiday on the Roseland…
Gorgeous river walks down on the Fal or the Percuil… both less than 10 minutes away, the enchanting setting of Turnaware Bar on the Fal is a magical place to while away a day… taking a picnic and some swimming gear or a flask and a rug in winter… watch the boats and amazing wildlife… go in the evening for an amazing sunset…Maybe go for a potter along the coast path… you may be lucky enough to see wild seals off Towan Beach, there are beaches you can stop at along the way to fit in a bit of paddling, rockpooling or swimming…
Ferries to Truro and St.Mawes and also river trips are available from St. Mawes and Tolverne ( near King Harry Ferry)
St. Just In Roseland Church
St. Just in Roseland Church is probably one of the most tranquil settings you will find. The little church with its beautifully kept gardens is on the creek at St.Just a short drive away on the way to St. Mawes.
St. Anthony Head and Lighthouse.
Head down through Gerrans and keep on going following signs.There is a car park and walks suitable for pushchairs and stunning views out to sea.On the same road stop at the Porth Car Park (National Trust) and walk back to Place.Here you can take the foot ferry to St.Mawes.
Drive through Gerrans and take the right turn to Percuil. There is a lovely grass car park and stunning walks along the river.Alternatively drive down to the main car Park and walk down to watch the boats. Roseland Paddle and Sail are based here for Watersport hire and lessons.
Whether its messing about by the river, exploring rock pools with the children or enjoying a sausage sizzle on the beach, it’s all free on your doorstep. Rockpooling provides hours of fun and there is always something to see and discover… a net and a bucket is all you need… and we usually have them here for you to borrow…The beaches down here have proper sandcastle building sand… great architectural structures are there to be created… why not nip down to the beach early evening if the weather is nice, take a few sausages and a little porti-barbecue and see what has been built that day… go for an evening dip and let the children wear themselves out before bed.
