A cosy cottage
We received a warm welcome from the owners on our arrival and thank you for the lemon drizzle cake and the bottle of wine which was waiting for us on the kitchen table!
We had a very pleasant stay and would definitely book again.
Thanks for your kind comments Cole.
Sorry we didn't see you again before you left, but hope that the wedding went well, and we'd love to see you again another time,
Very nice cottage,clean and very welcoming. Only a couple of gripes,one being the microwave didn’t work and there were no knives apart from a small kitchen knife and a couple of steak knives.
We loved Rosemerryn Cottage
We loved Rosemerryn Cottage. We arrived early as we had travelled through the night from Essex. Despite this we found the keys in the door and a warm cozy cottage. The lovely cake was a welcome surprise and didnt last long.
The cottage had everything we needed and more. We all loved hearing the sound of the river from the garden, and the variety of birds we spotted. It was lovely to let our kids be kids and play and explore these wonderful surroundings. We really enjoyed some nearby walks.
We slept well, the beds were comfy and loved the aga in the kitchen.
We had a walk to the Lamorna Wink and would recommend their Sunday roast.
The location was a convenient base for visiting local places like Lands End, Mousehole, St michaels mount, sennen cove and the Minack Theatre.
We will definetely be back again.
We're so glad you enjoyed your stay ay Rosemerryn Cottage, Alex, and we look forward to seeing you again soon,
Laura and Rob
Cosy & nostalgic in superb setting!
Arriving rather late at night we immediately found this charming cottage cosy and welcoming. Thanks to the excellent directions it was an easy find despite it's somewhat hidden location, and we were immediately taken by the cottage's "look and feel".
A warm welcome was appreciated, signaled by little details such as the cottage being nicely warm on this somewhat chilly September night, the welcome cake & wine, the lights switched on to help finding it in the dark etc.
The interior ha a nice nostalgic touch in every detail, but it always is "just there", nothing appears to have been just decorated on purpose. Unlike in many other cottages of this type nowadays where you feel that some furniture might better suit a museum or national trust property, Rosemerryn always keeps the impression of everything in there has simply been kept as it has always been, and tasteful additions or replacements have only been made when appropriate.
The garden, or rather the grounds around the cottage are marvelous, with woodland, a stream and even a small pre-historic cave. The kids thus had the best adventure playground one could think of, and last not least they found a great new friend in Finigan, the owner's dog.
As much as there is to see and experience in this glorious corner of Cornwall, from the nearby sea in walking distance to high-end attractions like St. michael's Mount - it was always a pleasure to return to Rosemerryn cottage in the evenings!
Thank you for your review of Rosemerryn Cottage. We are very happy you enjoyed your stay and that we were able to help make your stay in this special part of Cornwall such a wonderful experience. Finnigan was entertained by the children as much as they were by him.
Our Shamanic Tango retreat at the Rosemerryn was absolutely gorgeous!
Rosemerryn is a true gem of the West Penwith. The house and the gardens are obviously cared for and are kept immaculately. However, nothing is overdone, and everything feels in natural harmony with everything else. Laura and Rob, the owners, are helpful, supportive and caring as well as totally unobtrusive. I warm heartily recommend a stay in this beautiful place.
A twenty minute walk from Lamorna cove where there is a small beach, a cafe, a shop and canoe/paddleboat rentals. The coastal path can be picked up from here too; and hour's walk east will take you to Mousehole; turn west and you will walk beautiful cliff paths towards St Loy, Penberth and Treen. The beaches at Treen (Pedne), Porthcurno, St Levan (Porthchapel) and Sennen are 10-15 mins drive away, while the beaches at St Ives and Hayle are half an hour by car.
Newquay, an hour's drive away, is the nearest aeroport.
The port of Plymouth is one and half hours drive away.
Penzance station, with direct services to London (including a nightly sleeper), Birmingham, Manchester and Edinburgh, is 4 miles away.
A car is useful in Penwith, but the bus from Penzance to Land's End passes the end of the drive, so it is possible to manage without.
The closest grocery shop and post office are at St Buryan, two and half miles away. Land's End is 7 miles, St Just 6 miles, Newlyn 3 miles, Penzance 4 miles and St Ives about 12 miles away. Just beyond St Just are the Geevor Visitor Centre and Levant Mine, both giving a fascinating history of Tin mining in Penwith. There are art galleries and gardens in Newlyn and Penzance, and the Tate Gallery and Barbara Hepworth Sculpture Garden as well as numerous private galleries in St Ives.
There is a dive school in Penzance and the pier is the starting point for both fishing trips and motorboat excursions to look for ocean wildlife An art school at Newlyn offers short art courses. Lamorna cove is a popular place for scuba diving; there are also canoes and pedalloes for hire there. Sennen and Gwithian beach at Hayle offer fine surfing and both have surf schools for those who need instruction.
