Holidays in Roseland

Roseland is a rugged Cornish peninsula with outstanding sea views

Pendower beach

With secluded beaches, walks and traditional villages, the Roseland Peninsula is a truly magnificent part of Cornwall.

If you’re looking to get away from it all, this spectacular stretch of coast and countryside offers a tranquil escape from the hustle and bustle of modern life. Take a bracing dip at one of the peninsula’s serene, hidden beaches, or explore the area on foot via the South West Coast Path.

The Roseland Peninsula is close to the vibrant town of Falmouth up to St Austell, home of Cornwall's Eden Project. Surrounded by beaches, Roseland offers idyllic secret coves and golden sandy beaches. Tavern, Summers Beach, Great Molunan at St Anthony, Portscatho, Carne and Pendower, Portholland and Caerhays Porthluney Beach are all close by.

On your adventures, if you’d like to stop for a snack, try The Hidden Hut. This small café is tucked away along the coast and serves mouth-watering local food, including freshly caught seafood, scrumptious soup and curries. Don’t miss out on a feast at this coastal hideaway.

Traditional Roseland Peninsula architecture

Roseland’s notably warmer climate means flora and fauna are able to flourish, creating spectacular colours on the clifftops throughout spring and summer. If you’re a keen walker, this is a fantastic place to explore the wilderness of the Roseland Peninsula. Set on the South West Coast Path, numerous routes trace the countryside and coastline. There is a 26-mile stretch from Place Quay to Mevagissey harbour, passing through the Roseland Peninsula to Nare Head and Dodman Point. If you’d rather take to the seas, why not hire a sea kayak and take in the spectacular views from the water? Check out St Mawes Kayaks.

“With secluded beaches, walks and traditional villages, the Roseland Peninsula is a truly magnificent part of Cornwall.”

The peninsula is also packed full of traditional pubs, divine restaurants and cafes. The Idle Rocks, perched on the harbourside of St Mawes, is a truly idyllic spot for lunch or dinner. For a unique twist on Cornish cuisine, check out the Drunken Scallops with chilli, pomegranate and vodka or the poached veal rump with sweetbread. For a fine dining experience check out The Quarterdeck at the Nare. Using Cornish cheeses, meat and freshly caught seafood from St Mawes, a delicious meal is guaranteed. For a more informal atmosphere, there are many traditional pubs to sample in the area. The Roseland Inn and Victory Inn are both recommended.
